Chelation is one of our most popular treatments at our clinic. We have performed thousands of chelation treatments here in Vancouver. It is very safe. We encourage many patients to undergo this therapy because not only is it effective in heart disease but also it is a powerful detox that removes heavy metals, such as lead, arsenic and mercury, from the human body. Many patients also use chelation to reduce their body's burden of pollutants such as heavy metals. Heavy metals are found in all of us and sometimes they continue to build up to toxic levels that lead to symptoms or a disease. Many patients with undiagnosed diseases seem to benefit from chelation. Heavy metals can aggravate almost any symptoms and sometimes can even be the cause
How many treatments do I need?
For patients suffering from cardiovascular disease, chelation is usually performed twice a week for up to 30 treatments. Those undergoing this protocol can expect to notice a reduction or elimination of the symptoms week by week.
When chelation is used to remove heavy metals, the number of treatments depends on the amount of heavy metals that are present. To determine this, a heavy metal urine test is performed.
How does chelation work?
Chelation works by increasing circulation to the heart or other areas of the body by reducing inflammation and opening up smaller blood vessels. The chelating agent has a strong affinity to heavy metals. It binds to heavy metals and allows them to be excreted in the urine and feces. The chelating agent used can differ depending on the heavy metal we are trying to remove.
How much does it cost?
Each chelation IV is $105.
