Chelation Therapy

Chelation therapy is another scam that has been heavily advertised towards ALS patients.

Proponents/advocates claim chelation therapy neutralize free radicals and eliminate dangerous metals from the body.

Chelation therapies and the claims made by proponents online are widely held to be false and/or intentionally misleading.

What is Chelation Therapy?

Chelation therapy is popular in the United States. Chelation therapy is a series of intravenous infusions containing a sythetic amino acid (EDTA) and various other substances.

The question of whether it does more good than harm remains controversial, and has been touted online as a miracle cure for a variety of ailments.

There are MANY horrible side effects of chelation therapy, so intense are these side effects that they rarely justify using this therapy.

Chelation therapy is a series of intravenous infusions containing a sythetic amino acid (EDTA) and various other substances.

It is approved and effective for hypercalcemia and poisoning by heavy metals such as lead (not mercury!).

However, advocates of chelation therapy falsely claim it is effective against ALS progression, and a variety of other terminal illnesses.

Any claims that chelation therapy will help ALS patients are motivated by profit!

I have no idea if EDTA works for ALS. I do know for a fact that it does indeed remove heavy metals from the body and removes plaque build up in the arteries. It also breaks down calcium deposits in the joints and gives relief for arthritis. I have used it for several years. Within six months of starting on the pill regimen my blood sugar, Cholesterol, high blood pressure and other markers were down so much my doctor was shocked. My best friend started on it after me, he was scheduling heart surgery. A year later, he does not need the bypass and his doctor is relatively amazed at the results. I'm not saying it works for everyone, but it worked and is working for me and others I've recommended it to.

When I was 34 years old my thyroid was calcified, and the doctor said it was like an 80 year old woman's. I had chelation therapy and my thyroid returned to normal, and there were no side effects. I know for a fact that it works because I know several people that were helped, including a woman who had breast cancer. She was cancer free after her treatments.
