Is Chelation the Next Natural Therapy to be Banned in the U.S.?If a mainstay treatment of natural medicine doctors is shown to be safe and effective by government research, what do you do? Ban it! Action Alert! Congress passed the Drug Quality and Security Act in response to bad medicine from a rogue compounded-drug company, which the FDA had known about and refused to shut down. The FDA, ever the opportunist, and always working for the interests of Big Pharma, followed by writing regulations that threaten patient access to everything from estriol to nutrient IVs. So far there has been a two-pronged attack: either ban the substance from being compounded, or make it so expensive that no one can use it. Prices of many compounded treatments have already doubled or tripled in some cases. Individualized chelation medications are now on the chopping block as well.
