Benefits of Chelation Therapy
Blood Stickiness or Clotting
EDTA is believed to reduce the blood
platelet formation. This makes the blood less "sticky. The blood can now
flow through narrow arteries. It can flow through
even partially blocked arteries minimizing the effect of the blockage.
Abnormal Cholesterol and HDL Levels
There are two types of cholesterol: the
good cholesterol called HDL and the bad cholesterol called LDL. What we want is a high
amount of HDL in our blood along with a low level of LDL. We also desire a low
total cholesterol. Researchers have found that EDTA infusion, combined with vitamin and
mineral supplements, raised the good (HDL) cholesterol and lowered the bad (LDL)
cholesterol. If the HDL was low, it was raised; however, if it was already high,
its level remains the same. Similarly, the LDL was lowered if it was high. EDTA
optimizes the ratio of HDL and LDL.
Calcium from the Plaque
EDTA infusion removes the
calcium from the blood stream. In a chemical reaction, if you have an area low in concentration of a
substance surrounded by an area that is rich in that substance, the substance
will diffuse from the enriched area to that which is depleted of it ultimately
leveling the concentration. The same thing happens to our body. When the blood is cleaned off the
calcium, the calcium from the plaque and the body tissues (That is enriched with
it) migrate into the blood. This
gets swept away by the new EDTA infusion. This has the effect of removing most of the
calcium from the plaque, making it softer and possibly even breaking away chunks of it
from the artery walls.
Many people are concerned that this calcium
intake may come from the bones rather than from the plaque and body tissues. Chelation
therapists strongly suggest that this is not so.
