Oral Chelation - Is It Better Than Intravenous Chelation?


Intravenous Chelation was the most common practice until a few years back; however, with the introduction of oral chelation it became the preferred choice of most patients and doctors. There were a number of contributing factors to this shift of choice, the prime aspect being the cost factor. Though intravenous chelation would not cost you a fortune, still the cost will be way above the price of Oral Chelation. This initiated the use of oral chelation among the customers who were using intravenous chelation. Once they started using it on a regular basis the other benefits of oral chelation became more evident.

Mercury Chelation

One of the major advantages of Oral chelation is its capability to chelate Mercury from the body. EDTA (Ethylene Diamine Tetra Acetic acid) injected in intravenous chelation cannot bond with Mercury but the organic substances used in oral chelation agents bonds successfully with mercury and eliminate them from the body.

Oral Chelation - a painless process

Oral chelation involves nothing but taking 1-2 spoon full of doses of medicine. Most of these are based on some tasty ingredient like honey or jelly and are extremely delicious. Intravenous chelation involved painful process with risk of infection and vascular incision. In addition, intravenous chelation would often lead to other side effects like pain, fever, fall of blood pressure etc.

Availability

Most of the drugs used for oral chelation are not prescription drug and are easily available to most of the people.

Side Effects

Oral Chelation is mostly free from side effects and there is hardly any problem with using these chelating agents. However, if you encounter any minor problems like headache, fatigue or muscle pain it is advisable to increase your water intake. 8-10 glasses of water everyday would help the medicine to work more effectively without any of these occasional side effects.

Preventive Benefits

Oral chelation therapy is a safe and convenient method of preventing and curing heavy metal toxicity. The chelating agents helps in lowering blood cholesterol, prevent blood clots and reduces heart attacks.

Oral chelation agents like PCA-rx (available at Oral Chelation Therapy) can also work as a preventive medicine for people with family history of heart disease, stressful lifestyle and or unhygienic dietary person.

The only situation in which intravenous chelation might score over oral chelation is when the patient is under severe conditions. Oral chelation generally takes a few months to work, so if the patient is in immediate need for medicines intravenous chelation may be a better option than oral chelation.
