Chelation Therapy Now Available in Melbourne

Vitalifts is pleased to offer Chelation Therapy. Vitalifts physician, Dr. Sobredo, is certified by the American College for Advancement in Medicine (ACAM) as a Certified Chelation Therapist (CCT) in Chelation Advances Provider Training.

Chelation therapy (pronounced key-LAY-shun) is a treatment used in integrated medicine for removing heavy metals (including mercury) from the blood. It involves intravenous injections of a chelating agent, EDTA (ethylene diamine tetra-acetic acid), a synthetic amino acid. EDTA binds to heavy metals and minerals in the blood so that they can be excreted in the urine.

Chelation therapy is most often used to treat heavy metal poisoning. However, according to a study funded by the National Institutes of Health, because EDTA can reduce the amount of calcium in the bloodstream, and because calcium is found within the plaque that can line diseased blood vessels, some health practitioners claim that chelation can be used to treat atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) by reopening arteries clogged with plaque.

Dr. Sobredo explains that not everyone is a candidate for Chelation Therapy. Vitalifts sends patients a chelation screening questionnaire and packet. Once approved for the service, patients are scheduled for a physical and labs. After the results are reviewed, an individualized program is created to achieve optimum results.
