Chelation therapy is a chemical process in which a synthetic solution, dimercaptosuccinic acid (DMSA) is injected into the bloodstream to remove heavy metals and minerals from the body. Chelation means "to grab" or "to bind." When the solution (DMSA) is injected into the veins, it grabs heavy metals and minerals such as lead, mercury, copper, iron, arsenic, aluminum, and calcium and removes them from the body than kidneys will filter out the chelating agent and bound metals, which are then urinated away.
Health professionals have also used chelation therapy to treat atherosclerosis and/or coronary artery disease, (DMSA) grabs calcium deposits and cleans out the calcium deposits from the arteries, clearing arteries in much the same way that a drain cleaner opens clogged pipes.
Regenamex physician usually will address the effects of heavy metal toxicity in a patient and treat them with chelation therapy followed by certain parameters and prior labs.
Talk with Regenamex doctor about all of the possible risks and weigh them against the potential benefits of the treatment. You should also discuss with him other treatment options to help determine which is the best treatment and plan for your condition.
When chelation therapy is used the right way and for the right reason, it can be safe. The most common side effect is burning in the area where you get the IV.
NOTE: Today, chelation therapy is only approved to treat metal poisoning. There just isn't enough evidence to support its use for any other condition. And, as research shows, it can be dangerous if it's used for an unapproved reason.
According to the result of the prior labs and consultation with the Regenamex doctor, it will be ethically defined if the patient is a potential candidate for Chelation Therapy or another treatment is necessary.
