For more than 50 years, the FDA has approved a gold standard treatment for removing unwanted lead, mercury, aluminum and cadmium poisoning from the human body using a chelating agent (a chemical designed to bond tightly with metals) called EDTA (ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid.
The Chelation Center
Have you ever wondered why all the gunk that is clogging up your bathroom pipes can be easily dissolved by simply pouring Liquid-Plumber down the drain? Or why nobody has discovered something that can dissolve the gunk that's clogging up your arteries? Well, the good news is that it already has, but you may not have heard about it because fewer than 2,000 physicians in the United States offer this treatment for heart disease. For more than 50 years, the FDA has approved a gold standard treatment for removing unwanted lead, mercury, aluminum and cadmium poisoning from the human body using a chelating agent (a chemical designed to bond tightly with metals) called EDTA (ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid.
Studies have recently shown that EDTA chelation may be one of the most effective, least expensive, and safest treatments for heart disease ever developed.
In chelation therapy, a dose EDTA is delivered into your bloodstream through an intravenous (IV) line. This medication seeks out and binds to toxic minerals, i.e. heavy metals, in your bloodstream. It also binds to the calcium that is in any of the fatty deposits (plaque) in your arteries. Many people report less pain from chronic inflammatory diseases such as arthritis , lupus , and scleroderma after chelation therapy. The theory is that EDTA acts as an antioxidant, which protects the body from inflammation and protects blood vessels.
That is the basis of why EDTA chelation is so effective at treating blocked (usually calcified) arteries! Once the medication binds to the minerals, it creates a compound that can readily leave your body via urine.
- Chelation therapy for the treatment of the following conditions is considered medically necessary:
- Chronic iron overload due to frequent blood transfusion
- Non-transfusion-dependent thalassemia
- Control of ventricular arrhythmias or heart block associated with digitalis toxicity
- Emergency treatment of hypercalcemia
- Extreme conditions of metal toxicity
- Lead poisoning
- Wilson's disease (hepatolenticular degeneration)
- Chelation therapy for the treatment of other conditions/diseases including, but not limited to, the following is considered investigational:
- Alzheimer’s disease
- Arthritis (including rheumatoid arthritis)
- Atherosclerosis (e.g., coronary artery disease or peripheral vascular disease)
- Multiple sclerosis

Chelation Therapy FAQ
Simply put, yes. When chelation is used as a means of prevention, it can address possible free radical damage and cardiovascular problems. Despite what skeptics may lead you to believe, when chelation therapy is administered by trained professionals, and in conjunction with the right diet, natural supplements, and lifestyle techniques, it is a comprehensive alternative treatment. This therapy, according to the statistics, is safer than driving a modern day automobile or taking popular medication.
Since this therapy uses a simple intravenous method, it causes little discomfort. When patients are undergoing treatment, they can sit down, visit the restroom, socialize, eat, drink, and even make a telephone call. And because our patients are always on the move during chelation, we provide comfortable pillows, electrical outlets for computers/tablets, and a full staff which can assist, communicate, and take care of your medical needs.
It was first used by the British during World War II, was first used by the U.S. in 1948 to treat lead toxicity. Since that time, the medical community has developed, progressed, and treated millions of individuals.
No. Chelation therapy only binds dissolved and positively charged metal ions. Since stents and joint replacements are made of stainless steel, alloys, and titanium, there is no serious risk of damage.
If left untreated, mercury has the ability to affect every single organ system. Certain conditions are negatively impacted by toxic levels of mercury, including ADHD, heart disease, autism, autoimmune diseases, and many other neurological problems.
Calcium EDTA, which helps removes metals from the body, is an essential element in the detoxification process. Besides removing heavy metals, calcium EDTA helps with calcium and cholesterol metabolism by removing the toxins, which also prevents free radical damage. Free radicals, which are atoms and molecules that contain an unpaired electron, are scientifically considered to be leading causes of diabetes, artherosclerosis, and other commonly known age-related diseases.
Depending on the specific modality, it can be used in conjunction with most other treatments, such as certain medications, vitamin supplements, and lifestyle factors.
