What is Chelation
Chelation therapy is a slow intravenous therapy to prevent, slow the progression and treat Angina / Chest pain, heart attacks, cardiovascular disease, atherosclerosis (hardening of arteries), Coronary Artery Disease, peripheral vascular disease (leg pain and gangrene), scleroderma, and other age-related and degenerative diseases. Chelation. It is ideal prior to angioplasty with or without stent or bypass surgery and lifesaving for patients unfit for bypass, with failed bypass, recurrence after bypass and for those who do not want or cannot afford bypass and for patients who have no other treatment option to increase blood flow and detoxifies throughout the body.
There are very few doctors who practice this therapy in India, even though it is very popular in the Western countries. Dr Sibia, trained at Arterial Disease Clinic, UK and a member of American College for Advancement in Medicine (ACAM) introduced the therapy in the region in 1994. We follow the protocol recommended by ACAM. Sibia Medical Centre has successfully treated thousands of patients using amazing non-invasive non-surgical treatments from all over India and over thirty countries.
What are Chelation Therapy (CT) and Artery Clearance Therapy (ACT), its value and Effects?
Chelation comes from the Greek word "claw," meaning "to grab". Chelating agents like EDTA travel through the bloodstream "grabbing" on to minerals and metals, such as calcium, lead, mercury, cadmium, copper, aluminum and iron, binding them, removing them from the bloodstream, and excrete them in the urine. EDTA improves by eliminating metallic catalysts which cause damage to cell membranes by producing 'OXYGEN FREE RADICALS'. Free radical pathology is an important cause of atherosclerosis, cancer, diabetes and other diseases of ageing. EDTA helps prevent the production of harmful 'Free Radicals' through elimination. Intravenous infusion of Chelation therapy helps in the prevention and treatment of vascular disease, including atherosclerosis, coronary heart disease and stroke. Artery Clearance Therapy a registered trademark of Sibia Medical Centre. ACT is a complete program which includes Chelation Therapy, Lifestyle management, regular exercise, proper nutrition, vitamin, mineral supplementation and antioxidants. It is non-operative treatment of angina chest pain to increase blood flow to the heart to avoid bypass and to treat post bypass angina pain.
How Does Chelation Therapy Affect Health?
Chelation therapy promotes health by correcting the major underlying cause of arterial blockage. EDTA removes those chronic metallic irritants that affect the blood vessel walls and cell membranes and increase the damaging oxygen free radicals. The plaques smooth over and shrink, allowing more blood to pass. Arterial walls become softer and more pliable, allowing easier expansion. Scientific studies have proven that blood flow increases after chelation therapy.
