Think EDTA chelation therapy only reduces elevated metal levels in the human body? Think again! Despite the popular opinion of the world of western medicine, there exists literally hundreds of scientific studies promoting the use of EDTA for not only heavy metal toxicity, but a plethora of other health benefits (500+ Chelation Studies, n.d.). Some of them include: anti-aging effects through increased NO (nitric oxide) levels that relaxes blood vessels and also triggers stem cells‘ differentiation; resuscitates cell’s mitochondria resulting in the production of more ATP and overall more energy; cosmetic changes such as more lustrous hair, added eye sparkle, stronger unsplit nails, better skin color, texture and tone, fewer visible wrinkles, lightened age spots, and overall a more youthful appearance; improved taste, hearing, and vision; helps to prevent or reverse arteriosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) by reducing the free radical generating toxic metals and stimulating parathyroid hormone (PTH) activity, resulting in the removal of calcium and plaque buildup; rejuvenates the whole cardiovascular system through the aforementioned mechanisms; reduces the damaging effects of EMP (electro-magnetic field) as this radiation is more destructive the higher the metal levels are in the body; elevates the effectiveness of antibiotics, as well as provide its own antibiotic effects through its ability to disrupt bacterial biofilms; strong anti-fungal effect due to the interaction between Candida and toxic heavy metals; restores the healthy, normal distribution of essential nutritional minerals and metallic elements (chromium, cobalt, zinc, etc.) within cells; rebalances hormones because without the proper distribution and right amount of minerals (blocked also by the accumulation of toxic metals), vitamins are useless, enzymes cannot function properly and certain hormones become out of balance; important before any stem cell treatment to detoxify bone marrow, stem cells, and target organs; helps relieve symptoms of Alzheimer’s Disease and Autism (Get the most out of chelation, n.d., para. 1-20), (Cranton, E.M., 2013)…the list goes on! So, next time you’re in to see your doctor, you might want to check into this amazing therapy. There are few contraindications, few side effects when done properly, and the benefits might just be “what the doctor ordered” for you!
