What is IV Chelation Therapy?
Chelation Therapy is an intravenous treatment using an amino acid called EDTA in a solution containing minerals and vitamins that attaches to heavy metals and escorts them out of the body in the urine. IV Chelation has been used to treat the symptoms of conditions such as:
- Heart Disease
- Chest Pain
- Shortness of Breath
- Leg Pain
- Brain Fog
- Heart Attack
- TIA (Mini-Stoke)
- Heavy Metal Toxicity
- Peripheral Artery Disease
- Decreased Mental Function
Why Choose IV Chelation?
Chelation has been scientifically proven to remove toxic metals from the body. The results reduce the risk of heart attack, decrease cardiac death, and reduce the need for bypass surgery and stents. Chelation is even more effective in patients with diabetes.
The removal of plaque and poisonous heavy metals from the body improves blood flow, circulation, cellular function, metabolic function, and mitochondrial function. Mitochondria are cellular organelles inside all of our cells that act as the “energy powerhouses” making ATP or energy to keep each cell functioning.
IV Chelation Is Safe & Effective
First developed and used in the 1950s, it is now considered part of alternative medicine as growing research has shown that chelation therapy has the potential to treat and reduce the risk of heart disease, help control high inflammation and cholesterol levels, cognitive disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease, and more.
The common benefits experienced with IV Chelation are:
- Reduced Heart Chest Pain

A stable heart patient can usually improve with 40 – 60 IV Chelation infusions, 1 per week for 30 weeks, and then maintenance infusions 2-8 weeks apart depending on the management strategy recommended-selected.

Does Chelation replace the need for the assistance of a Cardiologist or Family Doctor?

Chelation is a great preventative option for those with stable heart disease.
Chelation is also very helpful to:
- patients with multiple symptoms
- patients who have reached maximum medication management, and
- are NOT candidates for open heart surgery or additional stents which often occur in patients with small vessel heart disease.
Symptoms of Heart and Blood Vessel Disease of the brain, legs, and other structures can also be reversed, improved, or slowed down using Non-FDA approved strategies as well as FDA-approved strategies such as medications, stents, and surgery. Non-FDA strategies such as IV EDTA Chelation, IV Ozone, IV Vitamin C, and FDA-approved strategies such as heart exercise rehabilitation are very helpful.

INSURANCE IS NOT ACCEPTED. Insurance only pays for conventional medicine. These management strategies are not conventional and are still considered experimental.
