chelation, mercury and plaque
Posted by: Richard

I have had up until now 25 EDTA Chelation IV sessions. So far, my angina condition appears to be about the same. My BP appears better and my cholesterol numbers are very good, except that I'm still unfortunately on Lipitor. I had a number of silver amalgam fillings (since removed) and was wondering if mercury toxins make up any part of the plaque buildup which wouldn't be removed or be more of an obstacle to EDTA chelation? Is mercury part of the mix with plaque and I need to consider DMPS chelation? I hope you can follow where I am going? I am 64 and was in good health till about 2 years ago, when doctors wanted to do a stent which I refused. I still exercise and try to do everything in moderation. I am simply trying to eliminate my blockage(s) at this point.

Mercury does not accumulate especially in plaque. So, let me set you straight on a couple of issues. The mechanism of EDTA which produces the remarkable results people report (but often with many more than 25 treatments) is not dissolution of plaque. Vascular plaque is a combination of calcium, scar tissue and debris from dead cells. While some calcification may happen the bulk of a plaque will remain since it is encased in scar tissue. The real benefit of EDTA is that it stimulates the widening of collateral circulation. This has been proven beyond doubt. It is a kind of bypass without the complications posed by anaesthesia and the knife. As to mercury, if you had your mercury fillings removed, the job is less than half done. If you are certain all the metal is gone, next you need to be given a DMPS Challenge Test to reveal the amount of mercury left in your body and then given an oral chelation program to remove it. That may have a lot to do with relieving your angina. As to Lipitor, if you are being chelated, well let me put it this way: in your place I would not be taking Lipitor unless I had familial hypercholesterolemia and/or a cholesterol of over 350. Other doctors will have a different opinion of course. I base my opinion on the proven fact that Lipitor and its cousins do not improve mortality in people who take them. In fact, they increase mortality from car accidents and suicide (and they increase the incidence of homicide), Add to that the shakey foundations of the cholesterol/arterial disease relationship and what one is left with is an ad campaign by the drug companies aimed and doctors and patients.
