Chelation takes around 10 days to 14 days to work and to see results.

A heavy metal blood test will let you know if you have heavy metals in your body and blood.

The test looks for common metals in the blood such as lead and mercury.

You can remove heavy metals from your bloodstream by drinking some apple cider vinegar and by having chelation therapy.

The most common medications for chelation therapy are succimer (dimercaptonol), dimercaprol (BAL), and ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA).

People who need chelation therapy are people who are experiencing metal poisoning and have high levels of toxic metals in the body.

Chelators work by binding to heavy metals in your bloodstream and then your kidneys filter them out and you excrete them through urination.

When doing and having chelation therapy you will typically have chelation therapy as often as twice a week and DMPS not more than once every 2 weeks.

To start chelation therapy you will need to see your doctor who will then use special drugs which bind to metals in the blood and the chelating drugs are given through an IV tube.

You cannot do chelation therapy at home as chelating products are not approved for at home use and can only be used with a doctors supervision and prescription.

You cannot buy chelation over the counter as the FDA has never approved any over the counter chelation products.

All the FDA approved chelation products require supervision of a doctor and a prescription.

Enterobactin which is produced by E. coli is a powerful chelating agent.

Chelation is hard on the liver and possible liver damage may occur with some chelating agents and some people may even develop liver failure from chelation.

The downside of chelation is low blood calcium levels and possible side effects such as vomiting, nausea, headache and fever and possible burning at the vein site where the chelation medication is given.

The drugs that are used in chelation are deferoxamine, deferasirox and deferiprone.

Chelation therapy does really work although some people it may be less effective in than others.

The success rate of chelation is 18 percent for cardiovascular events and around 98 percent effective in treating heavy metal poisoning.

Chelation therapy costs on average of $5,000.00

Each chelating treatment costs $75.00 to $125.00, and people often undergo dozens of these three-hour-long infusions over a period of several months.

Chelating treatment or chelating therapy is a treatment that removes heavy metal from the body and and treats heavy metal poisoning.

Heavy metal poisoning from metals such as iron, arsenic, mercury and lead can be removed through chelating therapy.

Some people have chelation therapy for other health conditions such as Alzheimer's autism and cardiovascular disease.

Chelation therapy is the preferred medical treatment for reducing the toxic effects of metals.

Chelating agents are capable of binding to toxic metal ions to form complex structures which are easily excreted from the body removing them from intracellular or extracellular spaces.

Today, chelation therapy is only FDA-approved to treat metal poisoning.

There just isn't enough evidence to support its use for any other condition.

And, as research shows, it can be dangerous if it's used for an unapproved reason.

Each chelating treatment costs $75.00 to $125.00, and people often undergo dozens of these three-hour-long infusions over a period of several months.

All in all, a treatment course can exceed $5,000.00—and it isn't typically covered by health insurance.

When metals like lead, mercury, iron, and arsenic build up in your body, they can be toxic.

Chelation therapy is a treatment that uses medicine to remove these metals so they don't make you sick.

Some alternative health care providers also use it to treat heart disease, autism, and Alzheimer's disease.

The lead and other heavy metal chelators include succimer (dimercaptonol), dimercaprol (BAL), and ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA).

Succimer is orally available and appears to be more effective and better tolerated that the other therapies, which require intravenous administration.

Some natural chelating agents include.

Amino acids and related compounds.
lonophores, such as gramicidin, monensin, valinomycin.

Enterobactin, produced by E. coli, is the strongest chelating agent known.
