Oral Chelation for High Blood Pressure

 There are different ways of treating high blood pressure. Some people try to maintain normal levels of blood pressure through diet and exercise, while others prefer taking medicines for hypertension. Besides these conventional methods, there are various alternative forms of treatment as well, for instance herbalism, acupuncture and homeopathic. Another very unorthodox and controversial method of treating hypertension is chelation therapy.

About Oral Chelation for High Blood Pressure

Chelation describes the process in which chelating agents bind to metals or toxins and enable the body to safely excrete through urine or feces. This process is generally used in heavy metal detoxification. Its merits in reducing blood pressure are still not confirmed, hence the reason for its controversy.

Different forms of chelating agents are used in this therapy, for instance disodium EDTA, magnesium disodium EDTA and calcium disodium EDTA, according to Vanderbilt University. For maximum absorption in the body, patients are usually given chelation by injection. Oral chelation is also effective as chelating agents like EDTA, can enter the bloodstream unaffected through the stomach. Liquids, pills and capsules are given in oral chelation therapy and their effects last for several weeks. Out of all these, liquid chelators are the best as these are absorbed better by the body as compared to pills and capsules.

Several theoretical benefits of EDTA chelation therapy for high blood pressure were given by a 2009 issue of the Disease-a-month journal. These include the decalcification (reduction) of plaque, reduction of free radicals and lowering of blood cholesterol. According to this study, chelation therapy can also be effective in reducing blood iron and clot formation, which in turn can contribute towards a more normalized blood pressure level.

According to Mount Rainier physician, Elmer Cranton, the use of chelation therapy is beneficial in hypertension as it can improve blood flow in every blood vessel without any major side effects or risks of toxicity.
