CHELATION THERAPY is a treatment used in alternative medicine.

In chelation therapy, a chemical substance is introduced into the body through an intravenous (IV) drip. Once it enters the bloodstream, the chemical substance binds to certain molecules (such as metals or minerals) and then removes those molecules from the body.
According to proponents of chelation therapy, eliminating excess or toxic metals or minerals from the body can enhance health and fight disease. The most common form of chelation therapy uses a synthetic amino acid called ethylene diamine tetra-acetic acid (EDTA). EDTA is known to remove substances such as lead, iron, copper, and calcium from the blood.
