Chelation Therapy

HOL-emblem

Clinical Trials/Results

Chelation therapy is backed by a large number of testimonials and experiments that shows the effectivity of this therapy. Many of these were not scientifically conducted (such as a double blind study). Chelation therapists rightfully point out that it is hard to give a placebo when administering the compound (especially from the therapist as is required for the double blind study).

Therapists point out that about 500,000 chelation therapies are being done in the USA alone every year and the patients are very happy, placebo effect or not. Rosenfeld, author of "Guide to Alternative Medicine" talked about two of his patients whose condition has improved substantially after the chelation therapy, although he could not clinically identify what was different about them. Chelation therapy saves considerable amount of money. A typical chelation therapy cost about $3000 compared to a bypass surgery at about $30,000. There is not much risk in chelation therapy as compared to the surgery.

A review of treatment results from 2,870 patients in Brazil found significant improvement in patients with heart disease or peripheral vascular disease who were treated with chelation therapy. 76.9 percent of the heart patients treated reported "marked improvement" and another 16.6 percent reported "good improvement". The results were even better for the patients who were treated for peripheral vascular disease. 91 percent showed "marked" improvement and 7.6 percent showed "good" improvement. So, 96-98 percent of the patients treated reported improvement after chelation therapy.
