Chelation Therapy

What is Chelation Therapy?

Everyday environmental exposures to toxic heavy metals such as lead, mercury, aluminum, and cadmium continue to play a critical role in your health. When not correctly eliminated from your body, these toxic metals get deposited into your brain, gut, and arteries, causing some serious health concerns.

Chelation means “to grab” or “bind to.” Chelation therapy is an FDA-approved treatment that uses EDTA (ethylene diamine tetraacetic acid), an amino acid, to bind to heavy metals and effectively and safely exit them from the body. The process involves a simple IV procedure to detoxify the bloodstream from toxic heavy metals, leaving you feeling your best!


Because your body cannot properly eliminate all toxic heavy metals on its own, chelation therapy is a necessary treatment for your health. Here are some of the incredible benefits below:
– Removes heavy metals from the blood
– Safe and effective treatment
– Non-invasive and well-tolerated procedure
– Non-toxic and virtually risk-free
– Less expensive alternative to angioplasty, stents, and bypass surgery
