What is EDTA Chelation Therapy?
Its Value & Effects
Chelation Therapy is a safe, effective and relatively inexpensive treatment to restore blood flow in victims of atherosclerosis without surgery.
Chelation Therapy involves the intravenous infusion of a prescription
medicine called Ethylene Diamine Tetra-Acetic Acid (EDTA), plus vitamins
and minerals at therapeutic dosages.
EDTA helps prevent the production of harmful 'Free Radicals' through elimination. Arterial disease is responsible for strokes, heart attacks, poor circulation and memory loss.
Detoxamin - EDTA chelation
An EDTA chelation therapy medical
For years EDTA chelation therapy has been instrumental in literally saving the lives of people across the globe. The results of this therapy have given patients a new lease on life. EDTA chelation therapy works by removing the toxic heavy metals from damaged hearts and heart valves as well as from hidden stores within blood vessels, kidneys, and more. You see, by removing the circulatory heavy metal toxins, EDTA enhances cardiovascular blood flow and function.
As highly recommended as this therapy has been
in the past, the only effective way to receive the therapy has been
intravenously. This requires sitting in a doctor's office while the EDTA
is slowly introduced into your bloodstream, via IV, over a 3-4 hour
period. The time, the expense, the invasiveness of the needle and the
overall inconvenience has made this therapy out of reach to most people,
We are so confident that you will experience better health once you start using Detoxamin;
I understand how important this information is to you as I see patients every day with both chronic and acute health problems. From heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, cardiovascular diseases, chronic fatigue, cancer to prostate issues and so many more diseases prominent today, it is apparent that each have one thing in common. They are all linked to our increasing exposure to heavy metals in our environment. In my clinic, Tustin Longevity Center (TLC), I have found heavy metals in the vast majority of my patients; this is without the patients even knowing that they are carriers of heavy metals in their bodies. This is why for years I have been administering IV EDTA chelation and am fully aware of the problems associated with it. For years I have been looking for a method of EDTA chelation that offered more affordability, more convenience and safety, without losing any effectiveness. I tried Oral EDTA and other methods, and none would compare with the results I experienced with IV EDTA chelation - until I started to use Detoxamin.
Clinically, my patient-population experiences demonstrate improved energy, mood and mental function as these oxidizing metals are reduced with Detoxamin. Detoxamin is the 21st century antioxidant key (along with a healthy lifestyle) needed to survive living in our toxic world.
As a medical authority on Detoxamin, I truly believe Detoxamin is one of the most significant means to improve patients' overall health that I've experienced in my 30 years of practice. And as of now, I have treated more than 600 patients with Detoxamin.
Why are you looking into chelation therapy?
We find that the three most common reasons are:
Whatever your reason is for visiting us today, we hope we give you
what you are looking for.
The benefits of using Detoxamin are astounding:
Medically equivalent to IV EDTA chelation. This is another huge aspect of why Detoxamin is so popular throughout the world. People for years have been frustrated with the inconvenient delivery of EDTA into the body. Now that this method is available, most people prefer it and in most cases the results are even better than with the IV method. For every three Detoxamin, you receive about the same dosage you would get in one IV treatment, but with a much safer and more convenient delivery method.
