Chelation Therapy

Bypassing The Bypass Surgery


Chelation Therapy

A recent study TACT suggests there may be 50% reduction in primary events like Heart Attacks (Myocardial Infarctions), Bypass Surgery and even Death)

  • Helps in Atherosclerosis of arteries like ANGINA, Heart Attacks (MI), Carotid Arteries, Limb Arteries, Aorta
  • Improves Hypertension (High Blood Pressure)
  • Improves Renal Functions
  • Improves Diabetes, Diabetic Neuropathy,
  • Detoxification & Removes heavy Metals from body like Lead, Mercury, and Arsenic.
  • Helps in Autism, Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Improves Memory & Concentration
  • Helps in Macular Degeneration & Retinal Detachments


Dr.Shahid Consultant Allergy and Immunology has more than 30 years of treating patients with allergic and immunological diseases in Pakistan and abroad. He believes in finding the cause of the disease and treating it instead of treating symptomatically for maximum benefit lasting cure. He strongly believes in Immuno-Nutrition and Detoxification and for that, he went to the USA to attend the courses in IV Nutrition and Chelation Therapy in 1995 organized by ACAM (American Academy of Advancement in Medicine). After attending courses and passing their exams he started Chelation Therapy in 1995 in Islamabad. Since 1995, patients from within the country and abroad are visiting his center for IV Immuno-Nutrition and Chelation Therapy with amazing results.


What is IV Chelation?

Intravenous Chelation therapy is a medical treatment that improves metabolic and circulatory function by removing toxic metals such as Lead, Cadmium, Arsenic, Aluminum, Uranium, and abnormally located nutritional metallic ions such as copper and iron from the body. Heavy metals contribute to plaque in the arteries, loss of memory function; adversely affect vital organs such as the liver, thyroid, parathyroid, and heart. These can depress immune systems as well as brain function and contribute to coronary heart disease. EDTA is used to chelate metals from the body.

What is EDTA?

EDTA is a synthetic amino acid, ethylene-diamine-tetra-acetic acid (EDTA) used since the 1940s. Chelation therapy is administered by an intravenous infusion of EDTA. In Dr. Elmer Cranton, M.D.’s book “Bypassing Bypass Surgery” he states many reasons for intravenous Chelation therapy. EDTA controls free radical damage that destroys cells as it removes heavy metals, restoring normal enzyme functioning. EDTA controls oxidative damage to cell membranes and enhances the efficiency of energy metabolism, independent of any effect on blood flow or oxygen. The intravenous Chelation therapy removes excess metal ions, redistributes abnormally high concentrations of essential nutritional trace elements in blood-deprived tissues, helps reestablish prostaglandin hormone balance which reduces arterial spasm, blood clots, plaque formation, and arthritis; protects the integrity of blood platelets, normalizes calcium metabolism, intermittently lowers serum calcium by stimulating the uptake of calcium in bones, increases tissue flexibility and encourages overall metabolic efficiency due to the whole range of above-mentioned factors. Oral or rectal Chelation therapy with EDTA, even in small doses, can bind to other nutrients and trace minerals preventing absorption thereby detrimental to health. The only safe way to administer it is intravenous.


In 1893 Swiss Nobel laureate Alfred Werner developed the concept of how metals bind to organic molecules. In the early 1920s, chelation found a wide application in the manufacture of paint, rubber, and petroleum. It was also found useful in the separation of specific metals. It gained importance in electroplating and industrial dye manufacture. In the mid 1930s, German scientists developed EDTA or ethylene-diamine-tetra-acetate in working to develop a synthetic calcium-binding additive to keep stains from forming when calcium in hard water reacted with certain dyes. Since then EDTA synthesis has been refined and accepted by the FDA in the United States as a chelate for toxic heavy metals. EDTA as a chelate is used today in hundreds of everyday products. Not until World War II was the potential therapeutic benefits of Chelation realized as a treatment for arsenic and lead as well as other heavy metals. In his book “Bypassing Bypass Surgery” Elmer Cranton MD states that in the 1950s “A group of workers suffering lead poisoning in a battery factory in Michigan was successfully detoxified.” And, “Next, the U.S. Navy adopted EDTA Chelation therapy for sailors who were poisoned by absorbing lead while painting ships at other naval facilities. By the mid-1950s, it was becoming the accepted ‘treatment of choice’ for lead poisoning in children and adults and, as of today, it still is.” He also states that “EDTA Chelation therapy was first used to treat heart disease by an eminent cardiologist and chief of research at the Providence Hospital in Detroit, Michigan.” From there it developed into a society of doctors that is now known as the American College of Advancement in Medicine or ACAM.
EDTA, besides removing heavy metals has many health benefits. A study from Japan found that EDTA given intravenously into mice increased the blood concentration of interferon four to twelvefold. Interferon is produced by the immune system and increases immunity. EDTA restricts free radical proliferation and allows the body’s natural antioxidant defenses to regain control.


Hundreds of thousands of people have now undergone Chelation therapy and thousands of scientific articles have been written about the process. Chelation therapy is not only safer than the conventional methods of treating ailments as blocked arteries from plaque formation but also strengthens bones by increasing their calcium uptake, providing an indirect treatment for osteoporosis. Surgery often addresses the symptoms of a disease, while Chelation therapy goes directly to its causes and reverses the damaging processes. People who are prone to strokes often have poor cerebral circulation, according to one large study. Chelation therapy can help prevent a stroke or lessen its effects by removing calcium and other mineral deposits from the arteries in the neck and head, helping to improve the blood flow. A study of 19,000 people with the peripheral vascular disease showed 82.5% of those who received Chelation therapy showed substantial improvement. Diabetes also responds well because the disease also involves the arteries as well as cardiac disease. It also may decrease the need for more insulin by opening up the insulin receptors. IV Chelation therapy besides heart disease can be used in the treatment of many other diseases as Autism, Parkinson’s, ALS, Alzheimer’s, dementia, macular degeneration, hypertension, arthritis, scleroderma, multiple sclerosis, and high cholesterol.

Other documented benefits* of chelation therapy include:
• Normalization of 50 percent of cardiac arrhythmias
• Improved cerebrovascular arterial occlusion
• Improved memory and concentration when diminished circulation is a cause
• Improved vision (with vascular-related vision difficulties)
• Significantly reduced cancer mortality rates (as a preventive)
• Protection against iron poisoning and iron storage disease
According to Dr. Elmer Cranton, M.D., chelation therapy has a profound effect on overall health as well as cardiovascular disease. To some extent, it slows the aging process. Chemical sensitivities and allergies also seem to improve due to better functioning of the immune system. Also, all types of arthritis and muscle and joint aches and pains seem to improve after chelation. In most cases, the progression of Alzheimer’s disease will be slowed and in some cases, the improvement is quite remarkable. Macular degeneration, a major cause of visual loss in the elderly, is often improved and almost always arrested or slowed by chelation therapy. Dr. Raymond Psonak, D.O., of New Gloucester, Maine also concurs he has seen marked improvements in cardiovascular disease with intravenous Chelation therapy with EDTA.
Chelation therapy using EDTA is a relatively inexpensive, safe, and effective technique for medical management of cardiovascular diseases and related diseases If you are interested just give us a call at 051 111 160160 (Islamabad Clinic) and 051 4848712(Rawalpindi Clinic)

There is huge scientific research, literature and many books providing evidence about the benefits of Chelation therapy (LINKL)
