Atherosclerosis—hardening of the arteries—is caused by the arterial walls hardening and thickening from deposits of plaque. This causes a narrowing of the arteries and leads to high blood pressure and the risk of stroke and heart attacks. The plaque is composed of oxidized cholesterol. This is why it is important to check your oxidized LDL along with cholesterol.
Over $56 billion a year is spent by Americans for medical treatment costs of heart disease; while over 60 million Americans suffer from various conditions of the disease. Heart attacks, alone, cause over 550,000 deaths in the United States every year! Heart bypass surgeries, angioplasties and cholesterol-lowering drugs are typical medical approaches to this problem. Most people don’t know you can die on the angioplasty table from this procedure.
We believe in the natural approach to deal with atherosclerosis. It can help to prevent heart disease and improve overall health safely, effectively, and at an incredibly reduced cost. This approach is known as chelation therapy. Pronounced key-Lay-shun, which originally comes from Greek roots? “Chele” means “to claw” or “to bind or grab.” Chelation therapy, is an approach that facilitates ”clawing,” “grabbing” or otherwise binding toxins, heavy metals, metabolic wastes and other unhealthy buildup in the circulatory system.
This process also expedites removal of dangerous toxins off the arterial walls and out of the tissues so they can be flushed from the body.
Intravenous chelation therapy with Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) a synthetic amino acid that binds up or “chelates” heavy metals, has been shown to be safer and more effective in reversing atherosclerosis, preventing heart attacks, strokes and improving circulation and overall health, as well as being used as an alternative to bypass surgery and angioplasty. The procedure can be performed by a medical doctor (MD), or licensed naturopathic medical doctor (NMD), who practices chelation therapy. Medical professionals who practice intravenous chelation are hard to come by, but there is an even less expensive and easy-to-obtain alternative—oral chelation.
Unfortunately, even with the overwhelming positive results reported by doctors who use chelation therapy, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and American Medical Association (AMA) still refuse to endorse this form of medical treatment. There are those who suggest that this stand is more motivated by the financial agendas of large pharmaceutical companies (who cannot make money on a commonly available food additive like EDTA), rather than a true concern for the health care needs of the hundreds of thousands of people who could benefit from the therapy.
Oral chelation (my favorite) uses natural, nutritional products in the home without having to go to a doctor’s office. Oral chelation is noninvasive and slower acting than intravenous chelation, creating less dramatic results at the outset, but over the long run can be just as effective. So, unless there is a life threatening need (which should be handled by clinical health care providers), oral chelation is an effective option for those who wish to improve their cardiovascular health naturally.
Furthermore, properly administered, oral chelation is relatively inexpensive and very safe. Here is how oral chelation works. Free radicals are unstable molecules that steal electrons from normal molecules, causing harm to the body’s health. What this means is that when a free radical molecule comes in contact with a stable molecule, it pulls an electron from the stable molecule, which makes the molecule unstable and chemically reactive within the body. Formerly benign and nontoxic these molecules then become toxic to the body.
Antioxidants are nutritionally-based substances that act as free radical scavengers. High levels of these antioxidants grab and pull toxins from the bloodstream, which allows the body to slowly dissolve and dissipate arterial plaque. Mega-Chel is a formula which provides many of these nutrients.
Oral chelation with Mega Chel can not only reduce arterial plaque and lessen the risk of heart attack and stroke, it can also help remove calcification from hardened tissues and rid the body of heavy metals, such as lead and mercury, and other toxins. Oral chelation may be helpful in reducing blood pressure and improving impotency problems in males due to circulatory issues, too. You can find Mega Chel (4201-8) on my website.
