With the advent of time and technology, we have grown to live in a toxic environment because of which traces of heavy metals can be found in the human body, such as mercury, lead, iron etc. Heavy metals as we all know can be extremely harmful to health because they ruin the normal functioning of the major organs by binding with the cells, thereby may lead to some serious health problems ranging from neurological disorders such as Alzheimer's disease, cardiovascular disorders, gastrointestinal disturbances, renal dysfunction, hormonal havoc, Parkinson's disease, Mad-Hatter's disease & minamata disease (mercury poisoning), paralysis and even death.
So how to get rid of these minute atomic time bombs and not let them short circuit our body? The answer to this question is Oral Chelation. It is a medical procedure which has been in use since a long time. The procedure is extremely effective and relatively inexpensive for the the results and quality of life that it offers.
How does Oral Chelation work?
To put it in simple terms, chelation means removing. Various oral chelates are available such as dimercaptosuccinic acid and ethylene diamond tetra acetic acid (EDTA) which basically bind to the heavy metals present in our body and do not let the metals bind with other agents and cells in our body. After binding with the metals, they help in the easy excretion of them via urine or stools.
Oral Chelation procedure must be done under expert supervision after a complete urine and blood test. Vitamin and nutrient supplements must be started prior to the procedure as chelates tend to bind to them and flush them out too.
The following Oral Chelating agents can be used for detoxifying and are include in many Oral Chelation Formulas
-Selenium (200 mcg supplements)
-Garlic (1,000 mg supplements or fresh cloves of garlic crushed) regularly
