Chelation Therapy

Chelation Therapy

Chelation therapy is a procedure used to remove heavy metals (including lead, mercury, cadmium and others) from the body.

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 

There are many causes of cancer. Age, habits such as smoking and drinking, family cancer history, a harmful environment, wrong diet and exercise regimen, and an unhealthy and stressful lifestyle may be risk factors for 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.

Heavy metal poisoning can be fatal too. People can imbibe these metals through vaccines, processed food, toxic water, metal-laced ointments or salves, and more. The primary harm of this is the deregulation and suppression of the immune system. Low immunity can lead to the body getting infected by some illnesses easily, and the treatment of these illnesses may not be as effective as it should be as the immune system has a reduced function.
So, the solution lies in removing these harm-causing metals from the body. Chelation therapy can be of help in cases of metal poisoning. In doing so, the body's immunity can improve, and it can fend off any attack of infections from viruses, bacteria, or other pathogens more vigorously.

How Does Chelation Therapy Work?

The treatment plan for Chelation Therapy is to attach specific drugs called chelators to the metals in the human body. These chelators have the property of binding to the metal. A few examples of chelators are dimercaprol, deferoxamine, succimer, edetate calcium disodium, and penicillamine. The medical practitioners will choose the chelators depending on what metal is causing the problem.
During the therapy, these drugs get induced into the body via an intravenous tube or pill form. On administration, the drug attaches itself to the metals present in the blood and forms a stable compound. This combination then gets filtered out through the kidney function and gets expelled during urination. The amount of time taken to remove the metals from the body on the type of metal poisoning and the treatment process. The body gets cleansed of the metal poisoning, which has acted as an impediment to its immune system.

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

Expert training is crucial for doctors who perform chelation therapy, as the treatment can be dangerous if not done correctly. Additionally, this therapy may have various side effects, which is why the doctor must conduct all necessary tests before starting the treatment and continuously monitor the patient during and after the process to avoid any complications. It is important to administer the appropriate dose of the treatment drug.

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.
