The Benefits of Alternative Medicine

Updated on May 20, 2014

Chelation therapy

Orthomolecular chelation is a process whereby a metal or mineral (lead, mercury , iron, copper , aluminum, arsenic and calcium) is linked to an exogenous substance injected intravenously.

The body has its own natural mechanisms of chelation, being a basic life process .

Common substances like antibiotics , aspirin , vitamins and minerals work in our body . For example the hemoglobin is the natural iron chelator .

Chelation therapy is a procedure by which an artificial amino acid called EDTA ( Diethyl- amino -tetra- acetic acid ) , is delivered intravenously , slowly ( 1-2 hours). The same is diluted in saline , being able to add other substances. It should be indicated and supervised by a specialist.

It is very important to first know the state of the kidney by measuring urine creatinine clearance 24 hours. This result determines the performance of the technique , the dose and frequency of sessions .

EDTA binds body metals , traps , and ejects them through the urine . Abnormal metals favoring free radical damage and heavy high toxicity metals are rapidly eliminated by the EDTA .

The number of chelation sessions depends on each patient . They can be made from a minimum of 5 to 50 or more sessions .

An arterial obstruction requires an average of 30 sessions. One or two weekly sessions are possible.

The well-managed EDTA is relatively nontoxic . Side effects are usually mild. Complications are rare and are usually seen in the administration of intravenous serums.

Chelation was introduced as a treatment by the British during World War II using another chelating agent ( BAL ) as an antidote to poisonous gas.

EDTA was first used in the United States in 1948 as lead chelator . Patients who had absorbed lead from the battery industry and sailors who had painted vessels were treated . The doctors saw that lead-poisoned patients and carriers of arteriosclerosis had improvements in both disorders .

EDTA serves ( among its main indications ) for:

- Poisoning ( lead poisoning )

- Angina

- memory

- View

- hearing

- smell

- Sexual vigor

- Asthenia ( fatigue )

Safe, Painless & Cost Effective

Intravenous EDTA Chelation brings these benefits to every blood vessel in the body, from the largest arteries to the tiniest capillaries, most of which are far too small or deep within the brain and other vital organs for surgical treatment. In many cases, the smallest blood vessels are the most severely diseased. The benefits of chelation occur from the top of the head to the bottom of the feet, not just in blocked segments of a few large arteries.

The Chelation Therapy Session

A chelation therapy session takes between 2 and 3 hours, during which you relax in a comfortable recliner and enjoy conversations with others, or if you prefer, you can read, work on your computer using free Wi-Fi or take a nap as soothing music plays in the background.

Chelation therapy has a 60-year history of safety and effectiveness recorded by physicians certified to administer the therapy and following the proper protocols. Over those six decades, more than one million patients have undergone chelation therapy for a wide range of circulatory problems.

NAD Therapy ( Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide )

NAD is a cellular coenzyme derived from nicotinic acid (Niacin) . Its main function is the production of energy in all cells.

One of the most important aspects of NAD therapy, is the vast amount of ailments which can be used to heal - Cancer , Chronic Fatigue Syndrome , AIDS , Parkinson's disease , Alzheimer's, depression , drug and alcohol addiction . This is because all these diseases have a common denominator, a shortage of cellular energy.

In this sense NAD is a kind of intracellular energetic currency , all cells need it to live.

With NAD therapy, production of cellular metabolic energy is restored at the level of mitochondria - the tiny organelles responsible for intracellular energy creation. This determines that patients feel more vigor both physically and mentally.

When cells have a low level of NAD their anatomical and functional structure changes or simply dies.

It is considered that the decrease in cellular NAD is directly related to the process of carcinogenesis by promoting oncoprotein expression. In the case of the other conditions above mentioned, is the reduction of energy, the central element.


The results of this therapy have been great , the therapeutic process is done initially with intravenous administration of NAD , a fairly simple procedure with no adverse effects , except at times and depending on the speed of the administration, mild abdominal muscle cramps can appear, which disappear immediately when the administration is slowed down. After obtaining a clinical improvement in the patient , the patient will be prescribed nutritional supplements to maintain high intracellular levels of NAD.
