Detoxamin EDTA Chelation Therapy Suppositories are a new form of a treatment that dates back more than 80 years. Chelation (pronounced key-LAY-shun) is a way to remove heavy metals from the body through the use of chelating agents. The first chelating agents for medicinal use were developed as an antidote for the arsenic based poison gas used during World War One. During World War Two, when a high number of sailors were exposed to lead paint, used on navy ships, another form of chelation was developed to treat lead poisoning. This was EDTA chelation. EDTA stands for the chemical compound Ethylene-Diamine-Tetra-Acetic acid.
The way Detoxamin EDTA and other chelating agents work is that they form chemical bonds with the toxic metals, so that the bonded agents and metals can be excreted from the body in the urine. Of course, very few people today come into contact with military poison gas or lead navy paint. But nevertheless, unwanted heavy metals in the body are a bigger problem in the 21st century than ever before. In fact, people today are living in an environment much more toxic than the human body was designed to cope with. A 2003 article in the Miami Herald newspaper (Being Careful Can’t Keep Chemicals Out of Your Body) stated that chemical contamination is becoming an almost universal problem, with everyone in contemporary society having toxic chemicals building up in their bodies. Although some people suffer worse than others, nobody is completely free from the problem.
Detoxamin EDTA Chelation Therapy was designed to be less expensive and less complicated than the traditional method of chelation therapy that uses an intravenous (IV) drip, and has to be given by trained medical personnel in the setting of an outpatient facility. Although this IV chelation has been given to more than one million people over the past 50 years, the process, however beneficial, is, unfortunately, not only very time-consuming but also prohibitively expensive for many people.
Instead of being an intravenous drip, Detoxamin EDTA is introduced as a rectal suppository, which dissolves at body temperature and is slowly absorbed from the lower bowel into the bloodstream, releasing a 750 mg dosage of Calcium Disodium EDTA over a period of about 80 minutes.
Removing such toxic heavy metals as mercury, lead, aluminum, arsenic and copper from the body can reduce the risk of such serious health problems as cancer, heart disease, psychiatric disturbances, speech and language deficits, cognitive (mental) impairments, hearing and vision abnormalities, motor disorders, gastrointestinal difficulties, liver impairment and symptoms related to the cardiovascular, respiratory, immune and reproductive systems.
