Chelation therapy is a US FDA-approved procedure designed to eliminate heavy metals from the body. This is accomplished by introducing a chelating agent called EDTA (ethylene diamine tetra-acetic acid)—a synthetic amino acid—either through injections or oral ingestion. EDTA binds with toxic metals, facilitating their expulsion via the urinary tract.


The significance of removing heavy metals from a cancer patient’s body cannot be overstated. These substances fuel cancer growth in two distinct ways. Firstly, heavy metals act as free radicals, damaging the DNA of healthy cells, causing them to mutate into cancerous ones. Secondly, these toxins suppress the immune system, rendering it incapable of identifying and eliminating cancer cells.

Furthermore, heavy metals incite inflammation and disrupt vital enzyme systems critical for fundamental bodily functions. Given their tendency to exit the bloodstream and accumulate in various tissues and bones, the body struggles to metabolize or excrete them.

Heavy metal chelation therapy plays a pivotal role in dislodging these deposits, clearing both free-floating and lodged metals from the circulatory system. By neutralizing cell-damaging reactions, EDTA facilitates their excretion through urination.

This process of cleansing the body from free radicals breathes new life into the immune system, reinvigorating its capacity to identify and eradicate aberrant cells.


In a world rife with environmental toxins, heavy metals are omnipresent. Beyond our tap water, heavy metals infiltrate our lives through various avenues:

  • Aluminum: Present in cookware, antacids, antiperspirants, baking powder, processed cheese, and even vaccines.
  • Arsenic: Found in chicken feed, pesticides, rice, and treated wood used in picnic tables, patios, and decks.
  • Cadmium: Abundant in cigarettes, electroplated parts, paints and pigments, plastics, and synthetic rubber.
  • Lead: Associated with leaded gasoline, lipstick, old water supply pipes, and paint.
  • Mercury: Lurks in dental fillings, coal-fired power plant emissions, fish from the Atlantic, flu vaccines, fungicides, pesticides, mascara, and tattoos.
  • Nickel: Common in batteries, cigarettes, diesel exhaust, and heart stents.


Before embarking on chelation therapy at Miskawaan, a comprehensive assessment is conducted. This includes an analysis of a patient’s blood cells, metabolic processes, kidney function, and liver health. Such scrutiny ensures that the treatment poses no unwarranted risks.

Subsequently, a low-level chelating agent is introduced into the patient’s system to mobilize heavy metals, directing them into the urine. This initial stage allows for the determination of the “body burden,” a reflection of the accumulated heavy metals.

EDTA is then administered intravenously, with supplemental oral treatments interspersed between infusion sessions. The frequency and duration of chelation sessions are tailored to the patient’s body burden, with sessions typically lasting two hours and occurring up to three times weekly. The duration of therapy varies based on individual heavy metal levels but may span several months.

Throughout the process, urine tests are periodically conducted to gauge the success of chelation in binding to and excreting heavy metals. Additionally, a mineral infusion follows each chelation session, replenishing essential minerals, such as magnesium, potassium, and selenium, that are chelated from the body alongside heavy metals.

Chelation therapy is seamlessly integrated into our comprehensive cancer and post-cancer treatment plans at Miskawaan.


The primary benefit of chelation therapy lies in its ability to purge harmful toxins from the body. Given the modern world’s relentless exposure to heavy metals, the body’s natural detoxification processes often fall short.

Furthermore, some studies have suggested that chelation therapy may reduce the risk of cardiovascular, Alzheimer’s, and Parkinson’s diseases. While the precise efficacy varies among individuals, our experts, with years of experience in integrative medicine, view it as one of the cornerstones of detoxifying cancer treatment.
