Chelation Therapy -

By: A Healing Place  09-12-2011

Chelation therapy is the administration of chelating agents to remove heavy metals, such as lead, arsenic and mercury, from the body.

Chelation therapy is used as a treatment for acute mercury, iron (including in cases of thalassemia), arsenic, lead, uranium, plutonium and other forms of toxic metals poisoning. One example of successful chelation therapy is the case of Harold Mcclusky, a nuclear worker who became badly contaminated with Americium in 1976. He was treated with diethylene triamine pentaacetic acid (DTPA) over many years, removing 41 MBq (1.1mC1) of americium from his body. His death, 11 years later, was from unrelated causes.

Currently the consumption of mercury is elevated in food products and other environmental sources which also contaminate the body with heavy toxic metals. These toxic metals don’t naturally exit the body; this is why chelation can be a potential requirement.
