Oral Chelation & Heavy Metals
Your cardiovascular system is made up of 60,000 miles of arteries and veins that are used to transport nutrients and oxygen to essential organs. If excess metals and minerals are clogging these arteries and veins, the body suffers. When your body is filled with toxic heavy metals, one way you may be able to excrete them from your system is by using oral chelation. Toxic heavy metals such as arsenic, lead, mercury, and iron can lead to illness. Thankfully, oral chelation uses a chemical substance called EDTA (ethylene diamine tetra-acetic acid) which is said to bind the toxic metals in the body and remove them through the urine.
It is thought that oral chelation was first used in the 1940s by the U.S. Navy to treat lead poisoning contracted during the war. Since that time, many doctors have used chelation as a possible way to detoxify the body by cleaning out entire systems in the body. Evidence has shown that oral chelation helps remove toxic wastes and debris that have accumulated in the arteries and veins, which are constantly in use.
