It was first used after World War II, when many soldiers returned with lead toxic due to ammunition, exposure to the paints of the battleships and so on. The symptoms of heart disease also lowered in these patients, which encouraged doctors to use EDTA for curing or aiding heart diseases as well.
Since the 1940s there have been hundreds of thousands of treatments of EDTA conducted throughout the world. It is a safe treatment that is extremely effective. In simple terms, EDTA helps the body by attracting the lead and removing it from the bloodstream via urine. When our arteries are clogged it can lead to a number of problems, such as increased risk of stroke. Plague in the arteries can be helped with EDTA.

Those who are dealing with cancer treatments tend to receive anywhere between 25-100 grams of vitamin C per session, which cannot be mimicked by taking vitamin C orally.
Patients that under chelation therapy are primarily tested for kidney function because that is necessary for the body to tolerate the IV treatment.
An IV of minerals stays in the blood for longer periods and is more effective than oral consumption. It is also good to keep in mind that much of the food we are exposed to is depleted or has a poor amount of nutrients, which can come from processed foods, bad soil and others.
