Chelation Therapy is effective in that it is able “to grab” or “to bind” heavy metals such as mercury, lead, arsenic, and aluminum, to name a few, and remove them from the body.
In 2019 it was discovered that Canadian tap water contained high levels of lead. According to Health Canada and the World Health Organization (WHO), there is no safe level of lead exposure.
Individuals who live in areas abundant in industry, farming, and natural resource extraction, such as Alberta, may be exposed to higher levels of environmental toxicants. Exposure to these toxicants such as lead, mercury, and cadmium can cause a myriad of symptoms and diseases.
They do this by accumulating in the body and producing “free radicals”. Free radicals are molecules that are highly reactive and cause damage to your cells. Higher amounts of toxicants in the body tend to create more free radicals in the body which in turn are more likely to cause disease and dysfunction.
There is a way to test and assess the overall burden of these toxicants in the body. There is also a way to reduce the amount of many of these toxicants in the body. This can be done through a procedure known as chelation therapy.
