Toxic Metal Removal
Toxic metals like mercury or lead can build up in your body after exposure. Symptoms can be severe and even life-threatening.
Chelation therapy uses a chemical called EDTA to remove toxic metals from your body. EDTA was first used in the 1940s to treat lead poisoning in ship builders and later to remove a range of other toxic metals.

Doctors noticed that patients receiving EDTA chelation for metal toxicity showed improvements in other conditions, notably cardiovascular disease affecting the arteries of the heart.
After decades of widespread international EDTA chelation use, a recent major clinical trial by the US National Institutes of Health showed EDTA chelation patients had a reduction in cardiovascular events. There was a greater reduction in events for people who also had type 2 diabetes.
