IV Chelation Therapy

IV EDTA Chelation Therapy is a safe, effective, legal, and relatively inexpensive treatment to improve blood flow in victims of atherosclerosis, without surgery.  Chelation therapy involves the intravenous administration of a prescription medicine called ethylene diamine tetra-acetic acid (EDTA).

EDTA is an amino acid which is especially effective in removing heavy metals from the body. 

Atherosclerosis is caused by multiple complex factors, including abnormal accumulations of metallic elements.  Most published studies of chelation therapy for atherosclerosis have described an improvement in blood flow and symptoms.

While best utilized to avoid bypass surgery, many patients who have previously undergone one or more bypass procedures, with little or no benefit, have subsequently benefitted greatly from chelation therapy. Many patients take IV Chelation Therapy as preventive therapy.

I have specialized in the administration of IV EDTA Chelation therapy since 1991.  I have taken the training and study provided by ACAM for the safe and effective administration of IV Chelation Therapy.

I follow the ACAM protocol for the safe, effective administration of this therapy.  I use the Machelation™ computer program (written by Dr. Herring) to specify and track the administration of the therapy.

While I do not believe IV Chelation Therapy is the cure for “whatever ails you”, I do believe, and it is my experience, that IV Chelation Therapy is beneficial in conditions resulting from diminished circulation and from conditions resulting from accumulations of toxic metals.  In conjunction with lifestyle changes such as weight loss, avoidance of tobacco, and proper nutrition, IV Chelation Therapy is a safe and rational choice for those who desire better health and well being.
