Chelation therapy is a simple, non-invasive, in-office treatment using IV infusion. For patients in St. Augustine, chelation therapy can help remove many heavy metals from your blood. It may also help clear potentially dangerous plaque buildup out of your arteries. This beneficial treatment is only one of the forms of IV infusion therapy we offer our patients.
If you or a loved one are experiencing the symptoms and side effects of arthritis, kidney disease, excessive iron, or other adverse health conditions, we can help. Our team at Anti-Aging & Regenerative Associates offers chelation therapy and other beneficial services. Our goal is to treat specific conditions and help you manage and improve your overall health. Your road to improved health starts with your in-office consultation.
What Is Chelation Therapy?
The human body is an amazing instrument with the ability to promote its own healing in many ways. Chelation therapy uses chelators that bond with excess metals to remove them from your body. These metals are removed through the normal process of urination.
Our team of physicians and nurse practitioners will review your current health and may conduct exams and request tests. The information we garner helps us get a fuller understanding of your overall health and your specific concerns.
How does Chelation Therapy Work?
Before you undergo your first chelation therapy appointment, our healthcare providers take time to explain the process in detail. You will know exactly what to expect, how long you can expect to spend in our office, and the number of sessions we recommend.
The first step is making you comfortable in our state-of-the-art office setting. From there:
- You will be given intravenous (IV) therapy.
- The chelators will be administered through IV infusions.
- Your session can last for several hours.
- You will be evaluated before returning home to rest.
In addition to removing metals, chelation therapy can also infuse your body with healthy vitamins. Our team members will clarify all associated benefits and risks and guide you toward the most well-informed decision for your health.
The Benefits of Chelation Therapy for Our St. Augustine Patients
According to Merck Manual research, the drugs used in chelation treatments bind to metals so they can be safely excreted. At Anti-Aging & Regenerative Associates, our St. Augustine chelation therapy can help new and existing patients rid their bodies of harmful metals.
The chelators we use can vary from patient to patient since we do not take a one-size-fits-all approach to your health. Chelator options include:
- Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid: a human-made amino acid
- Dimercaprol: a medicine
The chelators we select depend on a variety of factors, including your general health and specific needs. We also take any potential risk factors, like low blood pressure, into consideration. Risks, if there are any, will be reviewed with you prior to the start of any treatment.

Wilson’s Disease is a genetic medical condition that does not allow the body to eliminate excess copper. It can lead to dangerously high accumulations of copper in the liver, brain, and eyes.
Hemochromatosis is a hereditary condition in which excessive amounts of iron build up in the body, which can cause organ and tissue damage and harmful accumulation in the heart, liver, pancreas, and other areas.
Chronic Kidney Disease
Chronic kidney disease occurs when kidneys do not function properly, and the body cannot effectively filter or remove high levels of fluid, electrolytes, or waste, leading to their buildup in the body.
