Chelation Therapy

Chelation therapy (pronounced Key-Lay-Shun) is the use of chelating agents to detoxify poisonous metal agents such as mercury, arsenic and lead by converting them to a chemically inert form.  The chelation agents act as a powerful magnet to bind the toxins and permit excretion from the body.    It has proven to be particularly useful in the treatment of chemical and radiation poisoning, in addition to the removal of mercury found in amalgam tooth fillings, methyl mercury from seafood and ethyl mercury used as a preservative in vaccines.     More
