Protocol Controversies for Treating Cardiovascular Disease with EDTA Chelation

Protocol Controversies for Treating Cardiovascular Disease with EDTA Chelation | Chelation Therapy | Scoop.it

By L. Terry Chappell and Jeanne A. Drisko:

The purpose of this article is to discuss the rationale, evidence, and experience of physicians who are acknowledged experts in the use of EDTA for treating cardiovascular disease.  We hope to clarify whether Calcium EDTA should be used to treat vascular disease and how much EDTA and vitamin C are effective and safe to use.

Hannah Chappell-Dick's insight:

An ICIM member and an ACAM member came together to publish this article focused on the controversies of chelation therapy. Be sure to read it for updated information!

Report on the Proceedings of a Summit on New Directions for Chelation Therapy

Report on the Proceedings of a Summit on New Directions for Chelation Therapy | Chelation Therapy | Scoop.it

From March 13 to 15, 2013, the International College of Integrative Medicine (ICIM) held a summit meeting about what should be accomplished next, now that EDTA chelation therapy has been supported as a useful treatment for vascular disease by the Trial to Assess Chelation Therapy (TACT).  Experts from around the world were invited.  This paper is a summary of the conclusions and recommendations of this gathering.

Hannah Chappell-Dick's insight:

For a full and relatively concise statement on ICIM's views on TACT drawn from our Chelation Summit in March, 2012, please see this document. Included is a background, a statement of our current standing, and our recommendations. The photo was taken at ICIM's Chelation Summit.

Chelation Therapy History by the Townsend Letter

Chelation Therapy History by the Townsend Letter | Chelation Therapy | Scoop.it

Townsend Letter for Doctors & Patients' alternative medicine articles are written by researchers, health practitioners and patients.

 

"Chelation (pronounced ke'lat'shun) therapy in medicine is generally regarded to be the use of chelating agents to remove toxic heavy metals from the body. Toxic heavy metals include – but are not limited to – arsenic, cadmium, lead, and mercury. All metals, however, can be toxic when present in large enough concentrations."

Hannah Chappell-Dick's insight:

Although published in 2006, this article contains important information about the history, present, and future of chelation therapy. Dr. Martin Dayton, the author of this article, is an ICIM pioneer.

Chelation Nation! | Chelation Therapy | Scoop.it
Removing heavy metals from the body is a complicated science. Most doctors do not know how to even diagnose the problem, let alone treat the problem. Your body cannot tell that it's been poisoned, and neither can your doctors. But heavy metals are a main primary cause of many of the chronic illnesses of today. And removing heavy metals from your body CAN be done. Some recovery or even full recovery IS possible. This website explains what is going on in your body so that you can be your own expert, your own informed advocate for your own health, so that you can prevent further exposures, and so that you can hopefully get better.
Hannah Chappell-Dick's insight:

This link is great for patient information and for those interested in learn more about heavy metal chelation! This site does not cover chelation for cardiovascular purposes.
