Chelation for Alternative Medicine

Filed under: Health Nutrition — admin @ 6:43 am

Chelation therapy has its pros and cons but unquestionably it is now more then ever a viable alternative to surgery and traditional drug prescriptions. Chelation therapy has been used as a treatment intended for mercury and lead poisoning for years. In recent times, various doctors and alternative medicine practitioners have recommended chelation therapy to treat heart disease and stroke. But other doctors are worried that chelation therapy doesn’t work, or worse, could be dangerous. The American Heart Association doesn’t recommend chelation therapy as a treatment for heart disease, and the Food and Drug Administration hasn’t approved chelation therapy for use as a heart disease treatment. The most widespread form of chelation therapy uses a synthetic amino acid called EDTA (ethylene diamine tetra-acetic aci d). Always use any ‘natural supplement’ in moderation and always check with a reputable licensed natural practitioner before implementing any natural supplement regiment.

Even though it is not accepted by the FDA to treat arteriosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), EDTA chelation is used by a number of physicians and alternative medicine practitioners to perk up circulation and treat this disorder by removing calcium deposits and plaques from the arteries. Popularity of this treatment is growing, however this use is still considered controversial among the medical community. Chelation therapy should only be practiced by a licensed medical practitioner and only after a thorough physical. Before deciding on any method of treatment for any ailment it is wise to seek out an abundant amount of information and points of view.  In my outlook chelation therapy is an effect alternative to surgery and is an effective choice in preventing cardiovascular disease by boosting your immune system and effectively cleansing the arteries. Moreover be sure to check with with your pharmacist concerning interactions with prescription drugs.
