Chelation Therapy: Good for more than lead poisoning

If you were to undergo chelation (key-LAY-shun) therapy you would recline comfortably in a lounge chair for three-and-a half hours or more while an intravenous solution slowly trickled into your bloodstream. In the meantime, you could nap, talk, read, or watch television. Any discomfort or pain would be unlikely.

The intravenous solution would include a chelating agent — usually a synthetic amino acid called ethyl-enediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) — along with various vitamins and minerals. The EDTA would seek out toxic metals within your body, such as lead, calcium, aluminum, and mercury. It would also find certain minerals such as calcium, the “glue” in artery plaque. EDTA would then wrap itself around these substances and pull them out of your body via your kidneys.
