Chelation Therapy Removes Heart Blocks Avoiding Bypass Surgery: Fact Check


Limited Studies

In the first place, there are only few studies in past to examine Chelation for Coronary Heart Disease. National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH) and the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute sponsored a Trial to Assess Chelation Therapy (TACT). On the positive side, the large-scale, multicenter clinical trial showed infusions of disodium EDTA chelation therapy produced a modest reduction in cardiovascular events. However, further examination of the data showed chelation therapy benefitted only the patients with Diabetes. Some limited studies also suggested chelation therapy only works as placebo effect in case of coronary heart disease.

So available studies do not give conclusive evidence that Chelation therapy is a proven method to treat blocks in heart. More and larger studies can ascertain how well chelation therapy can help heart disease treatment.


Chelation therapy involves risks (including fatalities in case of wrong dose administration) and side effects. So, in case if you are considering trying chelation therapy, discuss it first with your cardiologist or other health care provider and choose the practitioner carefully.
