I am 48 years old, 186 pounds and very athletic and physically fit. This August 10th, after about 5 weeks of distinct symptoms of heaviness, noticeable increase in fatigue, and trouble breathing, I had three stints placed to open two arteries in my heart (one 80% blocked and a 2nd 99% blocked!)
I am feeling better, but was wondering about having Kelation Therapy to open any/all remaining arteries.
Kelation therapy is an approved treatment to remove heavy metal toxins (lead, for example) from your body. I do not believe it has any other proven application. Check with your cardiologist. They are the ones who can recommend preventative treatments.
You sound like you want to be aggressive in prevention of further heart disease. Again, talk with your cardiologists about how be the most proactive you can be. I would most certainly avoid unproven treatments, for no other reason is they give you false hope and lighten your wallet unnecessarily.
My understanding of chelation therapy is that it's just another one of them things that people will sell you that just do not do anything beneficial. A lot of people swear by it, but I don't think there's any credible evidence that it is effective.
kelation saved my fathers legs. the main stream doctors were ready to cut and make their 250000 dollars, with no regards to other treatments. they told my father that the legs were to far gone and he would not walk again due to poor circulation. six months later he's not only walking but working in is garden in the back yard. so you idiots dont know what you are talking about when you say save your wallet. it was the main stream doctors that didnt give a hoot about his legs and wanted to make 250,000 dollars.
I just met a man who had hep C from IV while n US Army in Vietnam plus three strokes in the past..His neighbor referred him to a doctor in Mexico who is very successful in treating people with Chelation therapy. He had 12 treatments which, he said, turned him from being barely able to sweep his front porch to hiking into Laos up a 7,000 sq ft mountain...This doctor has helped a lot of people in this area..For you doubters you need to check things out a little better..Happy New year
Just heard about a 96 year old; who had kelation 4years ago after his doctors told him he was a bad candidate for any cardiac procedures. This last fall, he went deer hunting and walk through the woods for 7 miles and is fit as ever, and actually even doing better than he has for many years after the kelation IV treatment was done. It does clean out the chemicals, which includes the calcium that is holding the arterial plaques that is clogging your bloodstream. I think it would be worth trying.
The calcium is the plaque and I keep hearing different sides to chelation. Here's what I don't get, and nobody has answered this question. When you develop artery disease it's because the artery lining which is only one cell thick is damaged, usually through wear and tear. Where the linings cells fall away or pull apart from each other, lots of blood cell types, including cholesterol lipids get trapped in there. The body triggers an immune system response and white blood cells travel to the area to start initialising repairs. This triggers an inflammation response, making more room for more cells to become trapped. White cells turn into macrophages and gobble up the mess in the artery wall and soon die to leave foam cells. Foam cells are a mixture of lots of chemicals, including red cells, urine, fat etc. With fat in the equation, there is no way to dispense of it, and fat cannot dissolve in blood because plasma is nearly all water. It gets smeared along the artery and our body forms a nice protective cap over this mess to stop it escaping. If this mess found its way into the blood, being unable to dissolve, it would be essentially a clot being pushed around. Held captive under the plaque (calcium), it is safe. The only problem is if the plaque cracks, releasing the mess and this is the biggest killer from heart attacks. Now, chelation comes into the equation. It removes the calcium (plaque) which has been put there to save lives and this is where I am highly confused. What happens to all that goo in the artery wall, just waiting to be released? In my mind, I would have thought patients with a lot of plaque caps would die quickly if the calcium was removed. Does anyone see why I just don't get it?
