Chelation Therapy for Cancer

chelation therapy for cancer

Free radicals, environmental toxins and heavy metals are contributing factors to the development and spread of cancer and we address this problem using Chelation Therapy for Cancer.

What is Chelation Therapy?

Chelation (pronounced key-LAY-shun) therapy is treatment used in conventional medicine for removing heavy metals (including mercury) from the blood. It involves intravenous injections of a chelating agent, EDTA (ethylene diamine tetra-acetic acid), a synthetic amino acid. EDTA is a remarkable arterial cleansing agent with the ability to effectively remove the plaque, cholesterol, and heavy metals that congest, restrict, and impede blood flow and oxygen throughout the 75,000 miles of blood vessels within the body. Another benefit, and perhaps the most important for cancer patients, is that EDTA binds with and removes from the body the excessive free radicals which many experts attribute to the development aging and disease.

What Are Free Radicals?

One of the underlying causes of cancer is excessive free radical damage in your cells that harms your DNA and results in some cells mutating into cancerous cells. EDTA’s primary benefit is that it binds with and greatly reduces the ongoing production of free radicals within the body. EDTA removes transition elements, such as iron, which accelerate free radical pathology, including cancer.

Free radicals are the highly unstable chemicals that attack, infiltrate, and injure vital cell structures. Most stable chemical compounds in the body possess a pair of electrons. Sometimes, one member of the electron pair gets stripped away. The resulting compound (that is short of one electron) is called a free radical.

When a free radical is born, it goes around the body looking for another compound to steal an electron from. This breaks up the stable compound that results in releasing another free radical, and so on. While on the prowl, these free radicals can do tremendous damage to the delicate machinery of your cells including altering the DNA of a healthy cell thus creating a cancerous cell.

Heavy Metals and Cancer

We accumulate heavy metals from our toxic world. The developing fetus is subject to about 70% of the mother’s heavy metals released into her blood to start off with, (Our Toxic World – A Wake Up Call,  Doris J. Rapp, MD). Then we add to that toxic-metal-laden vaccines, processed foods, toxic water, metal laced salves and ointments, and of course, dental amalgams and other medical implants.

Heavy metals that are immunosuppressant and can actually cause cancer are: Mercury, Lead, Cadmium, Aluminum, Arsenic and Uranium. These deadly and silent invaders cause suppression and/or deregulation of the immune system, leading to a ten-fold increase in cancer mortality.

Chelation therapy using EDTA has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a treatment for heavy metal poisoning for more than 4 decades because the human body cannot break down heavy metals, which then in time can build up levels in the body and interfere with normal immune and cell function. EDTA thus lowers the levels of metals such as lead, mercury, cadmium, and zinc by attaching to the heavy metal molecules, which helps the body to remove them through urination.

Is Chelation Therapy Safe?

Utopia Wellness has administered in excess of 80,000 Chelation Therapies without incident. The most common side effect of chelation therapy is a burning sensation at the site where the EDTA is injected into the vein. This can be easily alleviated by adjusting the rate of infusion or applying a warm compress. Rarely, side effects can include fever, headache, nausea, and vomiting. More serious side effects are extremely rare but could include a sudden drop in blood pressure; abnormally low blood levels of calcium; and kidney damage. Utopia trained and experienced practitioners monitor patients closely and provide proper supplementation to avoid these incidents.
