Chelation comes from the greek word chele meaning “to bind”.  CT is used to rid the body of unnecessary and toxic metals.  Is used by a growing number of MD’s to reverse the process of atherosclerosis. The reversal is accomplished in part thru the removal of the calcium content of plaque from the artery walls thru the injection of chelating agents.  By restoring good circulation to all the tissues of the body, CT can help avoid bypass surgery, reverse gangrene, alleviate intermittent claudication and restore memory.

Due to its ability to remove toxic metal ions, CT reduces internal inflammation caused by free radicals and thus can ease the discomfort and disability from arthritis, scleroderma and lupus.  CT has been used safely on more than 500, 000 patients in the USA for the past 40 years, but EDTA, the drug used during the infusions has yet to receive FDA approval.  Still, there are over 1000 MD’s who recommend and use CT for cardiovascular ds and related health problems.

Following the T/M protocol set by the american college of advancement in medicine and the american board of chelation therapy, FDA-approved studies are currently underway to establish the safety of EDTA.

 CT

is done on an out-patient basis, is painless and takes about 3 ½ hours. For optimal results, MD’s recommend 20 to 30 T/Ms given at an average rate of 1 to 3 per week.  The patient reclines comfortably and is given an IV solution of EDTA with vitamins and minerals. To monitor the pt progress, these tests must be taken before, during and after chelation: BP and circulation, cholesterol and other blood components, blood sugar and nutritional, kidney and organ function.

 Whole

foods, low fat diet, and exercise are recommended as part of the full TM program. Smoking is strongly discouraged and alcohol should be consumed only in moderation.

 By

1948 the US navy had begun using EDTA to safely and successfully treat Lead poisoning. At the same time, EDTA was being used to remove Calcium from pipes and boilers.  It is thought that because Calcium plaque is a prominent component in atherosclerosis, EDTA would be and effective TM for heart conditions. Experiments with EDTA chelation TM for heart patients validated this theory. Pts with angina reported dramatic relief from chest pain. Healing was also reported by pts with gangrene. For many patients, memory, sight, hearing and sense of smell improved and most reported increased vigor.


CT has since proven to be safe and effective in the TM and prevention of ailments linked to atherosclerosis such as coronary artery ds, stroke, peripheral vascular ds.  According to current drug safety standards, aspirin is nearly 3 ½ times more toxic than EDTA.

 Warren

Levin, MD of New York city, once administered CT to a psychoanalyst on the staff of a major New York medical center. “He was in his 50’s and looked remarkably healthy,except that he was in a wheelchair. He had awakened that morning to discover his lower leg was cold, numb, mottled and blue with 2 black looking toes. He rushed to his hospital and consulted the chief of vascular surgery, who recommended and immediate amputation above the knee. He asked this world-renowned surgeon about the possibility of using chelation in this situation and was told “ don’t bother me with that voodoo”

 The

ailing man decided to get a 2nd opinion. This MD also urged him to have an immediate amputation. When asked about chelation therapy,the second doctor’s response was “ you can try it if you want, but it’s a waste of time”. “Through his own tenacity, the psychoanalyst showed up in my office. We started emergency chelation and after about 9 TM’s – one taken every other day- he was pain free and picking up. After about 17 chelation TMs he was walking on the leg again. He never had an amputation and he lived the rest of his life without any further complications”.

 There

are a variety of substances that can act as oral chelating agents.  Penicillamine, a drug used to treat heavy metal poisoning, rheumatoid arthritis and wilson’s ds works in a fashion very similar to EDTA.  Some of the benefits derived from penicillamine in the TM of rheumatoid arthritis and related to the control and removal of excess free radicals.  Dr Gordon of Arizona, also uses many nutrionally based substances as oral chelators, such as garlic, vit C, carrageenan, zinc and certain amino acids like cysteine and methionine.

 Dr

Gordon has consistently observed a reduction of serum cholesterol by 20% or more. Thousands of pts have all successfully avoided strokes, heart attack rates were also diminished.

 Because

the patent for EDTA has expired, it is unlikely that any pharmaceutical company will invest the money necessary to fund studies for FDA approval of chelation therapy, despite the overwhelming evidence of its effectiveness.
