Chelation for Reducing Heart Attack Risk

For years, naturopathic doctors have touted the benefits of chelation for a wide range of conditions including coronary artery disease, diabetes, kidney disease, heart disease, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, and neurological disorders like Parkinson’s.

Most of those years have been an uphill battle, with the treatment, which has been in use for decades, being marginalized and dismissed.

Recently, a 10-year, $31-million clinical trial found that chelation therapy does indeed help heart attack patients slightly reduce their risk of serious heart problems, possibly on par or better than statin drugs like Lipitor. Good news!
