Chelation Therapy

Toxic heavy metals are heavy metals that become poisonous in the body when they are not metabolised or excreted and so accumulate in organs and tissues. 

These toxic heavy metals are of no Physiological benefit in the body.
Most toxic and most prevalent in Ireland are Lead, Mercury and Cadmium. It is the everyday long term exposure to these heavy metals that damage cells, can undermine our health and may play a part in the development of the chronic degenerative diseases.


Over 20 toxic metals are tested for in Dr Stewarts Clinic and where abnormal levels are demonstrated, Chelation Therapy (pronounced key-lay-shun) is recommended to rid the body of excess heavy metals.

While Chelation Therapy in the treatment of the chronic degenerative diseases is not standard medicine nor is it considered a form of evidence based medicine, it does remove Toxic heavy metals from the body.


Intravenous EDTA Chelation in acute lead poisoning is the gold standard in conventional medicine.

Intravenous Magnesium Disodium EDTA is the chelator of choice in Dr Stewarts Clinic. The treatment can only commence after you have undergone a full consultation, blood tests, and any other test Dr Stewart may deem appropriate to have completed beforehand.

The treatment will be administered by our fully trained and qualified IV nurse under the direct supervision of a licensed medical practitioner at Dr Stewarts Clinic. All patients are monitored during treatments.
Intravenous EDTA Chelation Therapy given via the protocol of ACAM (The American College for Advancement in Medicine) of which Dr Stewart is an accredited member) is extremely safe .
However as with all IV procedures a Chelation Therapy consent form is given to patients to read in which the risks and potential side effects (though rare) are explained prior to the commencement of treatment.
In certain circumstances a form of oral chelation therapy may be recommended.

Where Mercury in excess is believed to be the offending agent, and there are mercury amalgams in the teeth, these are removed and replaced with white composites prior to chelating mercury.
Intravenous Glutathione is also beneficial in this process.
