Chelation therapy is a treatment that eliminates toxins from the body.
These toxins can come from the buildup of heavy metals which we are inundated with. These include arsenic, lead, mercury, iron, copper and nickel.
Heavy metals are metals from the environment which have no physiological role and must be removed from the body. These metals replace the normal positively charged trace elements, like selenium, zinc and copper which are required for the normal functioning of the body’s millions of enzymes engaged in over 1,000,000 reactions every second.
Heavy metal poisoning can be caused by ingesting bits of lead paint, drinking tainted water or breathing heavily polluted air. Certain conditions can also cause a buildup of metals in the body. These include Wilson’s disease (causes copper poisoning), hemochromatosis (causes the body to absorb more iron than is necessary from food), chronic kidney disease (which requires dialysis and causes aluminum build up), and thalassemia (a blood disorder which requires frequent blood transfusions and which can cause iron build up).
When heavy metals displace these necessary trace elements, the enzyme systems can no longer function. Turning off the enzymes throughout the body is like turning down the ‘metabolic switch’ that keeps the body functioning.
This results in the inability of the immune system to function. The nervous system (brain and peripheral nerves) lose their ability to function with the speed necessary for effective cognitive functioning. Other functions involving vital organs will also slow down.
Both (Na)2EDTA and CaEDTA are effective intravenous chelating agents that chelate (“grab”) these unnecessary and damaging metals and escort them out of the body through the urine.
Chelation Therapy Benefits For Cancer Patients
One of the key benefits of chelation therapy as part of cancer treatment is the removal of heavy metals from the body before they can do further damage. For instance, lead poisoning can cause constipation, abdominal pains, fatigue and anemia. In children, prolonged exposure can cause cognitive and behavioral issues.
Chelation therapy is particularly crucial for cancer patients because the body needs to readjust its focus and concentrate on healing.
Chelation therapy can also help reduce toxicity levels in the bloodstream and improve blood circulation. Proper blood circulation is important so the immune system can protect the body.
It is crucial to the delivery of oxygen to vital organs. Chelation therapy iv therapy can also help prevent clotting and boost energy levels especially for cancer patients who are undergoing treatment.
One more plant based compound Amygdalin, commonly known as B17, also help to prevent cancer cells.
