Chelation Therapy - A Treatment for vascular occlusions
Without surgery for Heart Patients, Stroke Patients, Dementia and impending Gangrene.
What is EDTA Chelation Therapy..??
EDTA (ethylene diamine tetra acetic acid) which has the ability to attach itself to metals and minerals, forming a particular kind of bond called a chelate. Heavier metals such as lead have a greater affinity for EDTA and form stronger bonds. In the 1940's and 50's EDTA was found to be a safe and effective treatment for lead toxicity and was approved for uses as a drug for that purpose. In many cases, patients who coincidentally had symptoms of heart diseases such as angina improved while undergoing lead toxicity treatment. Since that time, scientific opinion and evidence that EDTA Chelation Therapy is effective in treating blood vessel diseases has been growing.
EDTA acts in several ways with in the body. Its first action is that it reduces "free radicals" Free radicals are highly active molecular fragments formed during the production of energy in the cells. They have high energy, like sparks in a fireplace, and the body can use this energy, when properly handled. However, if free radicals get out of control, they can cause damage to surrounding tissues, just as sparks that get out of a fireplace can cause the rug to catch fire. Excess free radicals contribute to the obvious signs of aging such as wrinkling and loss of skin elasticity. Internal damage is less visible but even more serious.
In Addition to the information of free radicals in the body, people are exposed to them in the environment from various sources such as polluted air, certain foods and drugs. Heavy metals also cause an increased production of free radicals. One of the most significant properties of EDTA is its ability to remove heavy metals in the body. Free radicals are thought to contribute to the development of vascular and other diseases. The removal of heavy metals that increase free radicals may explain the effect EDTA has in helping to prevent and reverse vascular disease.
Another action is that EDTA works by binding calcium in the bloodstream and altering the intracellular balance of calcium with magnesium. This also favorably affects circulation.
Physicians for more that forty years have used EDTA chelation therapy to treat a number of conditions including Cardiovascular Disease, Diabetic Arterial Disease, Alzheimer’s Disease and Varicose Veins. It is also effective as preventive Medicine.
