Chelation therapy

Chelation Therapy uses specific chelators like ethylene diamine tetra-acetic acid (EDTA) to remove toxic metals from the body including aluminium, cadmium, lead, and mercury. Many of the toxic metals are potent neurotoxins and endocrine disruptors. One of the cornerstones of effective management of chronic health conditions such as CFS, fibromyalgia, cardiovascular disease and auto-immune diseases, is to help the body rid itself of heavy metal overload. Heavy metals attach themselves to sites where normally minerals such as zinc and copper would act.
