At the Magaziner Center for Wellness, we are one of the leading centers specializing in EDTA chelation for cardiovascular problems.
Many people today are looking for alternative options to angioplasty, surgery and drugs to treat their heart condition. Chelation therapy is a promising treatment shown to reverse heart disease and atherosclerosis.
Chelation involves the intravenous infusion of vitamins, magnesium and a chelating agent known as EDTA. This mixture serves to chelate, or bind, toxic heavy metals, calcium and free radicals in blood vessel walls, which are then excreted in the urine. As a result, blood vessels become more pliable and circulation improves, which leads to the reduction or elimination of chest pain and other symptoms of vascular disease. Patients who have completed a course of chelation therapy often notice an improvement in energy and well-being, and are often able to reduce or eliminate their need for medication. In an analysis of more than 20,000 patients receiving chelation therapy, 87% had measurable improvement in parameters such as exercise tolerance, walking distance and cardiogram results.
Chelation therapy may also be more beneficial than surgery for patients with blockages in their legs known as peripheral vascular disease. Joseph Holliday, M.D., a vascular surgeon, demonstrated that those who underwent chelation therapy needed less rest, had less pain, could walk farther and did not require amputation when compared to those who had bypass surgery.
Studies such as these suggest that EDTA chelation should be strongly considered for patients with all forms of cardiovascular disease. Fortunately, you can reduce your risk of heart attack and stroke with the help of a simple blood test, healthy diet, regular exercise and heart-healthy supplements. In general, consume a diet rich in fresh, phytonutrient-dense fruits and vegetables, quality protein and whole grains. Avoid simple sugars, refined flour and all processed foods.
Also, exercise for 30 minutes five days per week. Exercise also helps boost your energy and self-esteem, control stress and help with weight control. While it seems to go without saying, it is also crucial to avoid any exposure to cigarette smoke. These guidelines—along with the key nutrients can keep you on the road to good health and optimal cardiovascular wellness. Would you like to learn more about your options?
