Quoted From: http://oregon-ent.com/patient-education/hw-view.php?DOCHWID=ty3205spec

"Chelation therapy is a chemical process in which a medicine is injected into the bloodstream to remove heavy metals and/or minerals from the body. Chelation means "to grab" or "to bind." When the medicine is injected into the veins, it "grabs" heavy metals and minerals such as lead, mercury, copper, iron, arsenic, and aluminum, and it removes them from the body.Chelation is a very effective way to treat heavy metal poisoning.
At high levels, heavy metals and minerals such as lead, mercury, copper, iron, arsenic, aluminum, or calcium are toxic to the body. Chelation is used to lower the amount of heavy metals and minerals in the body.Side effects of chelation treatment may include headaches, rash, nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain.
The treatment may remove vital minerals from the body along with the toxic metals. Sometimes vitamins and minerals are added to the treatment solution to help keep them at an optimal level in the body to maintain health."
