How Chelation is Done
Once diagnosis of toxicity is complete, your doctor can schedule you for your first chelation session. A session typically last 30 minutes to an hour and you may undergo anywhere from five to 30 sessions depending on the level of toxicity in your body. The appropriate chelating agent is administered in various ways, either through the mouth, the rectum, the skin, or through an IV drip.
Your doctor may prescribe natural supplements, a healthier diet and exercise regimen, and supplementary therapies to support chelation therapy. It is important that you take in a lot of proteins during this period because the amino acids that build up proteins help facilitate the detoxification process.
