Chelation Therapy using intravenous EDTA was initially used in the treatment of lead poisoning.
There is increasing evidence that chelation therapy may be useful in the treatment of cardiovascular disease, such as angina, blocked coronary arteries and poor circulation to the lower limbs, although it must be emphasised that there are no controlled clinical trials that show that chelation is of proven benefit in these conditions.
Doctor Dobie in Sydney never advises patients to avoid or cease conventional treatment for cardiovascular disease, but offers chelation as an adjunct to conventional treatment, and to those people who choose not have conventional treatment.
Chelation Therapy is very safe, but should be used with caution in patients with poor kidney function.
