Is Chelation Therapy Effective To Treat Cancer In The Duodenum
Chelation is the name for administering a substance to remove heavy metals from the body. It can be an important treatment for lead poisoning or iron overload. It is also touted by some for the treatment of autism spectrum disorders, based on the idea that these children may have toxicity from mercury or other heavy metals. However, there is little evidence to support this hypothesis. Chelation agents bind metals nonspecifically and may result in dangerously low levels of calcium, iron, and magnesium, in addition to toxic heavy metals. Thus, ...Read more

Oral edta is only about 5% absorbed. Research has shown detoxamin is about 35% absorbed but stays in the body a much longer time than IV edta.

I heard about edta chelation therapy, but the american medical association doesn't support it. Why?
Mineral depletion: Chelation therapy wipes out both good and bad stuff in body - if you are doing chelation it is recommended u do 3 day oral chelation captomer, lipoic acid, glutathione - captomer cleans, lipoic acid removes oxidative stress, glutathione provides energy for liver - this should be followed by 27 day high mineral +vitamin + energy for cells so both go hand in hand. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
