Atherosclerosis is the formation of plaque on artery walls which slows or blocks blood flow. Plaque occurs as a response to inflammation of the artery wall and is composed of white blood cells, LDL (protein attached to cholesterol and triglycerides) and in advanced cases calcium. Arterial plaque can lead to many different health problems caused by reducing blood flow to different organs and tissues.
No doubt you are familiar with the conventional treatments – cholesterol drugs, aspirin therapy, angioplasty, and bypass surgery. Today I want to share with you about two safe and effective alternatives.
Chelation Therapy involves the intravenous (IV) infusion of EDTA in a medical clinic. It was discovered in the 1950’s when people undergoing chelation therapy for heavy metals found their angina pain significantly reduced. Further investigation revealed that the chelation was also removing arterial plaque. You can find further information at www. arteryhealthinstitute.com. Be sure to see the section on research.
EDTA can also be taken in supplement form, called “Oral Chelation”. This term is sometimes used to refer to nutritional supplements developed for the same purpose. Some are special multi vitamin mineral formulas, others a combination of garlic, cayenne and other herbs. I prefer the more general term “vascular cleansing” for these nutritional formulas. These supplements can be just as effective in reversing arterial plaque and are more convenient and less expensive.
Many people who have undergone artery cleansing – either IV or oral – have experienced the following improvements:
• able to exercise more (walk or run farther) without angina pain
• high blood pressure reduced
• clearer thinking and improved memory
• no more cold hands and feet
• reduced heaviness, tingling and numbness in hands and feet
• eliminate leg pain with exercise
• reduce ankle swelling
• eliminate need for limb amputation due to peripheral artery disease
• improvement in erectile dysfunction
• reduced risk of strokes and heart attacks
Whether you have only a few of these problems or are on a waiting list for surgery, why not investigate these alternatives? You could be very glad you did.
