Cancer treatments come in many forms, with Chemotherapy, Immunotherapy, and Radiotherapy being the most widely used. The medical practitioner often chooses a combination of these therapies based on the patient’s individual needs and condition.
In addition to these treatments, chelation therapy is an effective option for removing harmful metals, such as mercury, arsenic, or lead, from the body of cancer patients. These heavy metals are known to be toxic and can be life-threatening to the patient. Chelation therapy works by injecting a synthetic solution into the body, which helps to flush out the metals through urination. The solution is made up of a mixture of nutritional supplements and chemicals.
Causes of Cancer
In our daily lives, harmful metals can accumulate in our bodies and cause permanent damage if we do not remove them. Sometimes, our natural excretory system fails to flush these metals out. Large quantities of metals such as lead, mercury, arsenic, aluminum, uranium, and cadmium can harm us greatly.
How Does Chelation Therapy Work?
After the unwanted metals get removed, the immune system starts rebuilding itself and becomes strong enough to fight off infection. The process involves administering intravenous injections over several weeks to produce the desired effect and cure the body of metal poisoning completely. The doctors will advise some dietary changes during the process, which helps remove the metal from the body and to avoid further exposure.
Cautions to Use Chelation Therapy
Chelators have the ability to bind to metals. When used for metal poisoning, these drugs can attach to both unwanted and essential metals in the body and remove them. However, this process can cause a deficiency of essential metals in the body, leading to other disorders. In these cases, the doctor must carefully monitor the patient and replenish the essential metals through diet or other means to maintain a proper balance of metals in the body.
Benefits of Chelation Therapy
The therapy protects the organs from the harmful effects due to metal deposition. Yes, a few doctors who practice alternative medicine may use this therapy to treat disorders such as autism, cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and so on. The success of chelation therapy is not yet proven for treating these disorders, so not many medical practitioners advise patients to undergo it to treat them now.
