Chelation

Definition of Chelation:

Chelation therapy uses EDTA or other supplements that carry heavy metals such as lead, cadmium and arsenic, as well as other foreign substances, from the body.  In the process of chelation, a larger protein molecule surrounds or encloses a mineral atom.  The purpose of chelation is to increase the flow of blood to the vital organs and tissues of the body by reducing calcium deposits in the arteries and blood vessels.
