What is Atherosclerosis?
Atherosclerosis is the underlying cause of most heart attcks and strokes. This is the blockage of the arterial wall by plaque, thus narrowing the artery, preventing the free flow of blood. Atherosclerosisi is associated with high blood levels of homocysteine, fibrinogen, c-reactive protein, glucise, cholesterol, insulin, iron, LDL and triglycerides, and low levels of HDL and testosterone in men. Arteries are the blood vessels that bear the full force of each heartbeat. Most people think of arteries as flexible tubes whose only function is to carry blood that flows continuously throughout the body. In fact, arteries are dynamic, functioning muscular structures that, when healthy, expand and contract to facilitate circulation and maintain optimal blood pressure. Poor health habits and normal aging result in endothelial dysfunction, a process in which the endothelium boundary is broken, arterial flexibility is diminished, abnormal platelet aggregation occurs, and atherosclerotic lesions form in response to arterial wall (endothelium) injuries.
So how do we remedy this problem?
In 1938 German scientists discovered a new compound called ethylene diamine tetra-acetic acid, or EDTA, for short. (If you notice the date and the location, you see why this is a political issue. It was discovered under the Nazi regime just prior to World War II)The elements that made up this amino acid were similar to common household vinegar. However, this EDTA had an amazing ability to grab hold of metals and chemical toxins in the blood stream. Once the EDTA had grabbed these metals and poisons it would dissolve them allowing them to be flushed out of the body through the stool and urine. Ultimatley this process became know as Chelation Therapy.
EDTA Chelation Therapy
EDTA chelation is a therapy by which repeated administrations of a weak synthetic amino acid (EDTA, ethylenediamine tetra-acetic acid) gradually reduce atherosclerotic plaque and other mineral deposits throughout the cardiovascular system by literally dissolving them away. EDTA chelation has frequently been compared to a "Roto-Rooter" in the cardiovascular system, because it removes plaque and returns the arterial system to a smooth, healthy, pre-atherosclerotic state. A better metaphor might be "Liquid-Plumr," because, where Roto-Rooter violently scrapes deposits off the interior surfaces of your plumbing with a rapidly rotating blade, Liquid-Plumr simply dissolves them away.
"Because EDTA is so effective at removing unwanted minerals and metals from the blood, it has been the standard 'FDA-approved' treatment for lead, mercury, aluminum and cadmium poisoning for more than 50 years."
EDTA Chelation Therapy is political and medical. Consider the facts:
EDTA chelation may be one of the most effective, least expensive, and safest treatments for heart disease ever developed, yet it is practiced by perhaps only 2,000 physicians in the United States.
EDTA chelation is not typically covered by medical insurance, even though insurance companies would save billions of dollars each year if they did.
Although they save far more lives than conventional treatments for heart disease and other chronic degenerative diseases at a fraction of the cost, physicians who practice and promote EDTA chelation for these uses have been harassed, vilified, smeared, and, in some cases, driven from their profession by powerful medical societies and government agencies that practice and promote conventional medical treatments.
Roto-Rooter is a far better metaphor for conventional medical treatments for heart disease, all of which are closely tied to the concept of the cardiovascular system as plumbing. When a pipe/artery gets clogged, simply ream it out or flatten the deposits (angioplasty). If that doesn't work, just cut away the bad section(s) and replace it (them) with a new piece of pipe (coronary artery bypass graft, or CABG). It's the same basic strategy older cities use for replacing their century-old water mains. And we know how successful that is! CABG, known affectionately in the medical profession as "cabbage," is the most frequently performed surgery in the United States. At up to $50,000 per procedure, that indeed amounts to a lot of "cabbage," not only for cardiac surgeons but also for hospitals. As we shall see, these figures provide a powerful incentive for physicians to reject an effective, but inexpensive and unpatentable treatment like EDTA chelation.
EDTA exerts its beneficial effects on the body because this molecule is extremely proficient at chemically bonding with mineral and metal ions. This bonding process, known as chelation, is a natural and essential physiologic process that goes on constantly in the body. EDTA's chelating abilities make it ideal for many tasks:
Because EDTA is so effective at removing unwanted minerals and metals from the blood, it has been the standard "FDA-approved" treatment for lead, mercury, aluminum and cadmium poisoning for more than 50 years. EDTA normalizes the distribution of most metallic elements in the body.
Because it is so safe and effective, EDTA is also used widely as a stabilizer for packaged food. Minute amounts of EDTA (33-800 PPM) added to food help to preserve flavor and color and to retard spoilage and rancidity. (Read your food labels.)
Because EDTA inhibits blood clotting so well, it is routinely added to blood samples that are drawn for testing purposes.*
EDTA improves calcium and cholesterol metabolism by eliminating metallic catalysts that can damage cell membranes by producing oxygen free radicals.
Consider having chelation therapy. This is offered by intravenous drip, but that is very costly and time consuming. I take oral chelation therapy twice a year for about 6 weeks to two months. Here is the prodcut I buy. I use Oral Chelation Therapy from Healthmasters.com byDr. Ted Broer. It's the best!. Of course, please check with your physician before you begin any type of health process!
I hope this has openbed your eyes to that fact that Heat Disease is reversible and it can be overcome.
I am with you and in your corner!
