According to World Health Organization,Cardiovascular diseases comprise the top three leading causes of diseases in the Philippines. 17.7 million people die every year from cardiovascular events, that’s 31% of all global deaths. Out of cardiovascular diseases, 53% of deaths are due to coronary heart disease and 17% are due to stroke, all consequences of clogged arteries.
Our body is composed of around 5.6 liters of blood containing nutrients and oxygen that needs to be distributed via over 90,000 miles of pipes called blood vessels which then nourish the cells. The blood circulates throughout the body three times per minute. Clogged arteries cause a decreased supply of blood that may lead to the stoppage of blood flow in an area that may lead to cell death. Blockage of blood supply in the heart is called a heart attack, blockage in the brain is called a stroke
Chelation therapy is the removal of heavy metals in the body. When metals like lead, mercury iron, arsenic, aluminum build up in your body, they can be toxic that may lead to many diseases. First developed and used in the 1950’s, chelation came from the Greek word “chelos” meaning claw. It signifies the plier-like claws of a crab.
Numerous studies have proved the efficacy of chelation as the main alternative to bypass surgery or angioplasty. It may be effective in reversing atherosclerosis because it reduces oxidative stress, is anticoagulant (decreases clotting), lowers serum calcium, and lowers blood pressure. It is also proven in decreasing risks of diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, angina, gangrene, claudication among others.
The net effect of undergoing chelation therapy may be a reversal of many age-related changes
How does it work?
In chelation therapy, a dose of medication called ethylene diamine tetra acetic acid (EDTA) is delivered into your blood stream through an intravenous (IV) line; or dimercaptosuccinic acid (DMSA) via oral route. These medications seek out and bind to excess minerals in the blood stream. Once the medication binds to minerals, it creates a compound that leaves the body through the urine.
Clogged arteries contain calcium and other mineral and heavy metal deposits that bring about blockage through the process called atherosclerosis. Effective reversal of atherosclerosis is done through removal of these unwanted deposits via chelation therapy, good healthy diet and exercise.
Is Chelation Therapy safe?
Holistic Integrative Care Center uses the latest technologies in chelation practices ever developed through constant training outside of the country and utilizing only international protocols for safety and efficacy.
Like any medical treatment, there are risks involved, but we are very confident that IV Chelation Therapy has been proven safe and effective over the course of sixty years of trials and clinical usage. The FDA recognizes chelation therapy for the treatment of acute heavy metal poisoning of either lead or mercury.
What are the benefits of Chelation?
Anti-aging effects and energy: helps to increase healthy life expectancy, elevates NO (nitric oxide) levels that relax blood vessels and also trigger stem cells’ differentiation, resuscitates cell’s mitochondria resulting in the production of more ATP and overall more energy, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome benefits from chelation;
Cosmetic changes: more lustrous hair, added eye sparkle, stronger unsplit nails, better skin color, texture, and tone, fewer visible wrinkles, lightened age spots, and overall a more youthful appearance;
Improves taste, hearing, and vision, restores post-cataract surgery vision loss, dissolves small cataracts, decreases macular degeneration, improves vision in diabetic retinopathy;
Helps to prevent or reverse atherosclerosis(hardening of the arteries) by reducing the free radical generating toxic metals and stimulating parathyroid hormone (PTH) activity, resulting in the removal of calcium and plaque buildup. PTH increased 2 1/2 fold after EDTA chelation (3 grams) treatment;
Rejuvenates the whole cardiovascular system: reduces blood pressure, improvement in chest pain (angina pectoris) in 19 out of 20 patients, reduces cholesterol levels, normalizes cardiac arrhythmias, rapid heartbeats, skipped beats, and extra heartbeats; reduces blood cholesterol levels;
Restores the healthy, normal distributionof essential nutritional minerals and metallic elements (chromium, cobalt, zinc, etc.) within cells. A spectrum of such metals has been shown to accumulate to toxic levels in both diseased and stressed cells;
Lowers insulin requirements in diabetic, can save legs in diabetic ulcers, accelerates the healing of lower leg infections and gangrene;
Relieffrom leg muscle cramps
Reduction in allergic symptoms, especially if EDTA is taken together with glutathione; superior in reducing inflammation over steroids;
For a clear mind: Alzheimer’s Disease, symptoms of forgetfulness and senility reversed as memory and mental concentration improves; recently a study concluded that Autistic patients have elevated toxic metals;
Beneficial in prostate enlargementand prostate cancer, especially together with a broad spectrum ‘natural antibiotic and antiviral’ product, can reverse impotence, reduced need for diuretics;
Reduces serum iron levels
