Chelation therapy is a process involving the use of chelating agents to remove heavy metals from the body. The most common forms of heavy metal intoxication include lead, arsenic and/or mercury.
Heavy metal toxicity from chronic environmental exposure is often unrecognized because its symptoms are similar to many other health conditions: fatigue, nausea, insomnia, impaired mental function, nervousness, and even damage to vital organs. Although some heavy metals are part of a healthy diet (the trace elements iron, copper, manganese, and zinc), others (including arsenic, lead, mercury, cadmium, and aluminum) may become toxic when they accumulate in soft tissues after exposure through food, water, air, or absorption through the skin. Although arsenic and lead still lead the list of toxic heavy metals, potential mercury poisoning from fish such as tuna and swordfish, childhood immunizations, and dental fillings has caused increased concern. Chelating agents that bind to the heavy metals, are often used to detoxify the body.
Derived from the Greek word for "claw," chelation is the process of chemically binding metal ions and removing them from the tissue, to be filtered from the blood in the kidneys, and eventually excreted in the urine. Chelating agents may be administered orally, intramuscularly, or intravenously.
