How does EDTA chelation therapy work to clear blocked arteries ?

Several theories have been suggested by those who recommend this form of treatment.

 

  1.One theory suggests that EDTA chelation might work by directly removing calcium found in fatty plaques that arteries causing the plaques

      to break up.

  2.Another is ththat the process of chelation may stimulate the release of a hormone that in turn causes calcium to be from the plaques or 

     causes a lowing of cholesterol levels.

  3.A third theory is that EDTA chelation therapy may work by reducing the demaging effects of oxygen ions(oxidal on the walls of the blood 

      vessels by removing the "Free Radicals". Reducing oxidative stress could rescue inflammed arteries and improve blood vessel function.
