Here’s a brief overview of chelation
There are a variety of common chelating agents with differing affinities for different metals, physical characteristics, and biological mechanism of action. For the most common forms of heavy metal intoxication –lead, arsenic or mercury – a number of chelating agents are available. Dimercaptosuccinic acid (DMSA) has been recommended for the treatment of lead poisoning in children by poison control centers around the world. Other chelating agents such as 2,3-dimercaptopropanesulfonic acid (DMPS) and alpha lipoic acid (ALA), are used in conventional and alternative medicine. Some common chelating agents are ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA), and thiaminetetrahydrofurfuryl disulfide (TTFD). Calcium-disodium EDTA and DMSA are only approved for the removal of lead by the Food and Drug Administration while DMPS and TTFD are not approved by the FDA. These drugs bind to heavy metals in the body and prevent them from binding to other agents. They are then excreted from the body. The chelating process also removes vital nutrients such as vitamins C and E, therefore these must be supplemented.
When used properly in response to a diagnosis of harm from metal toxicity, side effects of chelation therapy can include dehydration, low blood calcium, harm to kidneys, increased enzymes as would be detected in liver function tests, allergic reactions, and lowered levels of dietary elements. When administered inappropriately, chelation therapy brings risk of cancer, neurodevelopmental disorders from toxicity, and death.
So, yes, chelation works for removing heavy metals from the body however, it is harsh, can harm the liver and kidneys and also removes vital nutrients. It is very intense and the schedule is often complicated.
Many parents of children with ASD have gone down this harsh route before turning to homeopathy. Once they start homeopathy, they see that clearing can be achieved simply by giving a twice weekly minute dose of a homeopathic remedy over the course of a few weeks to months. There are no side effects from homeopathic remedies and no risk of organs being harmed. Not only that, but homeopathy can clear vaccines which the child reacted to in the first place and which led to ASD symptoms. It is often not the virus itself but the carriers and additives used to make the vaccine which have caused a catastrophic reaction.
At Pure Life Homeopathy, we give the appropriate clearing remedy alongside a weekly constitutional homeopathic remedy. The constitutional remedy works as a catalyst for the immune system thereby strengthening the system in preparation for clearing.
Homeopathy works holistically.
A fascinating thing about homeopathy versus chelation is that homeopathic not only removes the targeted heavy metal, but it will also rebalance the body holistically, balancing out minerals and other metals in the body. As a result, the client ends up with a much healthier system in general than the person doing chelation.
