Could You Benefit From Chelation Therapy?

Chelation therapy detoxifies the body and cleanses the blood by eliminating harmful metals accumulated in healthy tissues. Our Heavy Metal IV therapy is aimed at protecting the body against the damage caused by heavy metals and restoring internal health.

Here is a brief outline of chelation therapy, why it’s performed and the benefits it offers.
 

What is IV chelation therapy?

Chelation therapy is a method of removing heavy metals that build up in the body’s healthy cells and tissues. As it involves the intravenous administration of medications, it is commonly referred to as IV chelation therapy.

During our Heavy Metal IV therapy, a chemical compound is injected into the blood. This compound is known as EDTA (ethylene diamine tetra-acetic acid), a synthetic amino acid with the ability to bind to and remove metals and minerals like lead, iron, calcium and copper from the blood. This enters the bloodstream and binds to molecules of metals and minerals so that they can be easily removed from the body.

The elimination of these toxic metals from the body enhances general health and fortifies the body’s ability to defend itself against illness.
 

Why is it important to remove heavy metals from the body?

On a daily basis, we are exposed to a variety of heavy metals including mercury, iron, arsenic and lead. The most common sources of exposure to heavy metals are:

  • Polluted water
  • Ingestion of lead-containing paint
  • Air containing high levels of pollutants

A build-up of metals may also occur due to genetic factors or certain treatments recommended for the management of illnesses. For example, a genetic issue may cause an accumulation of copper in the body resulting in the symptoms of copper poisoning. Similarly, the absorption of excessively high levels of iron in the intestine from food or overuse of iron supplements may lead to iron overload.

Those who require blood transfusions are also at risk of iron overload, and others who undergo dialysis may be at risk of a build-up of aluminium in the blood.

These metals cannot be eliminated completely via the body’s excretory organs. As a result, they can accumulate in healthy tissues. As this build-up of metals increases, it may affect the body’s normal physiological functions. It can also affect general health and lead to fatigue as well as changes in the skin and other tissues. Therefore, it is important to eliminate these toxic chemicals from the body in order to restore energy levels and slow down other degenerative processes.

Chelation therapy with our Heavy Metal IV reduces the overload of toxic metals in the blood and healthy tissues. It offers a safe and effective way to eliminate metals from the blood, including:

  • Iron
  • Lead
  • Mercury
  • Arsenic
  • Nickel
  • Copper

 

Who can chelation therapy benefit?

Chelation therapy supports the body’s natural detoxification processes. Our Heavy Metal IV can be beneficial for those with a build-up of heavy metals due to reasons such as:

  • Chronic exposure to lead in paint or other industrial materials
  • Certain disorders that can cause an accumulation of copper or other metals in the body
  • Long-term use of iron supplements
  • Residing in polluted cities

 

What are the positive effects of Heavy Metal IV therapy?

The Heavy Metal IV facilitates the faster removal of toxins, restoring optimal health by detoxifying the body. It offers several benefits such as:

  • Supporting the function of the skin and other organs
  • Protecting healthy tissues against damage
  • Slowing down age-related changes
  • Reducing fatigue
  • Improving energy levels

At Vitamin Injections London, our Heavy Metal detox is a fast and safe method of flushing out toxic metals from the body, leaving it healthier and more energised.
