What is EDTA?
EDTA (ethylene diamine tetracetic acid) is a synthesized amino acid. Since the early 1940’s, EDTA has been used in cases of heavy metal poisoning to remove harmful metals from the body. As a matter of fact, it was in conjunction with treating cases of lead poisoning that physicians first noticed that patients who also suffered from hardening of the arteries often exhibited marked improvement in circulatory functions, as well as a lowering of blood pressure, following the administration of EDTA. This led to a “new” use for EDTA even though the FDA does not list it as an “approved” use for hardening of the arteries.EDTA has profound effects on several other aspects of body chemistry. There are actually several mechanisms by which it is believed to exert its beneficial effect. When EDTA is injected into the bloodstream, it appears to “break down” or “lock onto” the mineral and metal components of plaques (aluminum, lead, etc.) These particles become part of the EDTA solution, leave the bloodstream via the kidneys, and are finally eliminated in urine. In our clinical experience, diagnostic tests taken before and after chelation therapy have revealed that areas of impaired circulation are often improved following the series of chelation treatments.
