Chelation Therapy is something most people have never heard of. It is most often used as a treatment for heavy metal poisoning. It is also a treatment used in alternative medicine to treat heart disease, cancer, and other conditions. Miami Alternative Medicine can help you to determine if this therapy is right for you and your condition.
The therapy, performed by Alternative Medicine Doctors, involves an injection of an acid chemical that binds to heavy metals, and works like a claw by grabbing onto the metals. Once the acid has attached to the metals, it helps the body remove the metals through urination. However, this therapy can be toxic to your body and may lead to kidney damage, heart problems, and in rare cases, death, so it should only be considered when you weigh the risks and benefits with your doctor at your Miami medical clinic. Carefully consider all your options.
This therapy is usually given as an injection into your vein at your Dayton Medical clinic. You and your doctor will determine how often and how many treatments you will need, but typical treatments include up to twenty injections extended over twelve weeks. This therapy can also be given by mouth, but requires more treatments. Your doctor may recommend that you continue the therapy for several years. Since this treatment removes minerals from the body, it is also recommended that you also receive a high dose supplement of vitamins and minerals during your treatment period.
The interaction with this therapy and other medications and foods is unknown because it has not been fully tested. Full studies of the interactions and effects of this therapy are not available, so the adverse effects of this therapy with other drugs is not conclusive. Side effects of this treatment can include diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, skin rash, and poor appetite. The most common side effect is a burning or itching sensation at the site of the therapy injection.
The therapy is sometimes used as a treatment for heart disease because the acid used in the treatment binds to the calcium that creates the plaque in your arteries. The acid then binds to the calcium build up, and is taken out of the arteries as it moves it through the bloodstream. The safety and effectiveness of this use of the therapy has not been determined and has not been approved by the American Heart Association or the Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of heart disease. Discuss these options and risks with your Alternative Medicine Doctors to see if this would be an effective and cheaper alternative to bypass surgery and other conventional medical treatments for heart disease.
This therapy has also been used to successfully treat other diseases or medical problems.
Some people have experience improvement in disorders such as multiple sclerosis, autism, cancer, and Alzheimer’s. Analysis of some people with these disorders show that they have high levels of metals in their bodies and that this therapy can help clear their bodies of these metals, thus improving their condition. However, it must be noted that there are no conclusive studies to prove this works or that it will work for you and your situation. It has not been approved as a treatment for these conditions.
When considering Chelation Therapy, only you and your doctor at Miami medical clinic can determine if this therapy is the right course of action for you.
