Chelation is a very specific type of IV Therapy used primarily for the removal of heavy metals from the body including the most prominent; iron, lead, mercury, cadmium, and zinc. These toxic heavy metals in your body may be compromising the function of your body's organs. At Houston Wellness Clinic, we will first help you rule out the presence of these heavy metals and advise you as what to avoid in your diet, and what other factors in your daily living may be contributing to you acquiring these metals, including industrial exposure, smoking, and amalgam fillings. Once we diagnose whether you have any an excess of heavy metals in your body that are a deterrent to normal and optimal function within your body we can help you remove them with oral and intravenous Chelation.Back to Top
Conditions It Manages
Chelation therapy was initiated around the 1940's to treat lead poisoning. However, since then many other conditions have seen improvements due to the management especially those dealing with vascular diseases. The environment is full of many toxic metals that due to their unnatural structures easily enter the body but are very difficult to get out. These toxins accumulate and wreak havoc on your body being stored in places such as the liver, kidney, heart and brain creating a broad spectrum of health conditions. Another way Chelation works is to bond with free radicals, stopping cell damage that they cause.
Heavy Metal Overload is the most common reason Chelation is used however, there are many ways Chelation can significantly improve your body's health. All Chelation managements are personalized and will help specifically what's ailing you.Back to Top
Management Plan - Treating Blocked Arteries
Blocked arteries whether they occur in your heart, in the vessels to your brain, or to the extremities and organs, we now have a proven remedy which does not involve a surgical procedure, and involves treating ALL narrowed vessels everywhere in your body at the same time Treating these blocked arteries involves removing the mechanisms that narrow the vessels with chelating agents. This entails doing it through one of your arm veins. The procedure is painless, takes about 60-90 minutes, and about 30-40 of these treatments are usually necessary to obtain a successful out come, in the great majority of cases
Since this procedure is recognized by the FDA, re-imbursement by the insurance companies occur. There are very few instances where this procedure does not have a positive outcome. In addition since narrowing of vessels all over the body occurs , there is usually improvement in kidney function, and some lowering of the blood pressure. At Houston Wellness Clinic , we have helped significantly patients who had returning chest pain after cardiac surgery ( where future bypass grafting or stent placement was not feasible.
Conditions that may be helped by this procedure include intermittent claudication in legs ( narrowing of lower extremity vessels ) Chest pain /Angina ( narrowing of coronary arteries ) Arresting further mild strokes ( TIA's ), or issues of vertigo etc ( where vessels to brain narrowed ). Increasing blood flow to the brain also aids in decreasing vascular dementia onset, since incidence of strokes is diminished, and blood supply increased. Simultaneously,correction of other factors is undertaken such as decreasing blood thickness ( viscosity ), improving the lipid profile ( cholesterol, triglycerides and homocysteine levels ) Erectile dysfunction ( where vessels to genital organs narrowed ) Improving healing in ulcers such as diabetics where vessel narrowing is present. These cases are further assisted with Hyperbaric oxygen and Ozone therapy.
Digestive issues such as pain after eating or poor absorption of foods may occur since proper functioning of the bowel is compromised due to an inadequate blood supply. This is the only non-invasive treatment that may make a difference.
It is important to realize that if you have narrowing to one area such as the coronary arteries, or the legs, or the brain, that the process of narrowing ( increased atherosclerosis) involves vessels to other parts of the body. The great advantage of this procedure, is that all vessels are being subjected to the same treatment, and consequently improved blood flow can occur in multiple areas. Doing a surgical procedure in one area ( such as the heart or vessels to the legs), only involve that area, with no relief of flow to any other area of the body that may be affected.
The process for Chelation therapy works by administering a man-made Chelation ingredient called EDTA as well as potent vitamins and minerals through the vein. EDTA bonds with heavy metals forming a compound which goes through the kidney and is excreted through the urine therefore removing the harmful metal.Back to Top
