surgery alternatives

I found out this year that I have several vascular blockages, heart, carotid, femoral arteries, etc. They (Doctors) want to do very invasive surgery. My heart was repaired with a stent. I am researching any and all alternatives I can find, rather desperately. I was told by a lady 78 yrs old that she was helped greatly by Chelation therapy. What can anyone tell me about researching this farther? Thank you, any info would be appreciated.

For a referral to a doctor in your area who is familiar with chelation therapy, contact the American College for the Advancement of Medicine at 800-532-3688.
chelation. This involves putting a substance into your body (usually through an IV) that grabs ahold of any heavy metals (aluminum, lead, and mercury, for example) and excretes them through the urine.
I know some alternative docs who are gung ho about IV chelation therapy—especially when it uses a synthetic amino acid known as EDTA or another agent known as desferroxamine. But I have my reservations. it’s cumbersome, expensive, and has been known to have numerous side effects it’s still a roll of the dice whether it can work or not.

But as it turns out, nature has provided us with its very own chelating agent—cilantro. Over a decade ago, a doctor named Yoshiaki Omura discovered that simply eating this common (not to mention, tasty) herb increased the amount of lead and aluminum secreted in the urine.

In order for it to be effective as a chelating agent, you should add fresh cilantro to your food every day for a few weeks. Don’t worry —you don’t have to eat cilantro for the rest of your life. But in order to prevent the long-term build-up of heavy metals—and to lower your chances of getting Alzheimer’s —I do recommend doing this at least once or twice a year.

Now, I’m not offering cilantro as a surefire prevention or cure but given its safety and the absence of safe, effective alternatives, give it a try. For extra benefit, add some daily chlorella, a fresh water algae and excellent detoxifier. I like Nature’s Way brand: Take three capsules, three times a day, of this super food.
Let me do some more research of my reports and I'll get back to you!

Here is something to gradually clear the blockages naturally. Take one teaspoon turmeric powder in hot water, twice a day. Do the pranayam twice a day, daily, with concentration.
You will start to feel the difference after 4 weeks, if you follow the pranayam for the suggested duration.
Build up your timing gradually.If you feel tired or dizzy, stop and resume after one minute.
Kapalbhati pranayam -(Do it before eating) Push air forcefully out through the nose about once per second. Stomach will itself go in(contract in). The breathing in(through the nose) will happen automatically. Establish a rhythm and do for  30 minutes twice a day. Children under 15 years – do 5 to 10 minutes twice a day.
Not for pregnant women. Seriously ill people do it gently.
Anulom Vilom pranayam –
Close your right nostril with thumb and deep breath-in through left nostril  
then – close left nostril with two fingers and breath-out through right nostril  
then -keeping the left nostril closed  deep breath-in through right nostril
then - close your right nostril with thumb and breath-out through left nostril.
This is one cycle of anulom vilom.
Repeat this cycle for 15 to 30  minutes twice a day.
Children under 15 years – do 5 to 10 minutes twice a day.
You can do this before breakfast/lunch/dinner or before bedtime or in bed.Remember to take deep long breaths into the lungs.You can do this while sitting on floor or chair or lying in bed.Keep your eyes closed, during pranayam.
