Discover Safe And Natural Options To Boost Your Heart Health And Promote Healthy Arteries
June 24, 2010 by Dr. Michael Cutler
If you are over the age of 50, you may have seriously clogged arteries as a result of poor diet, genetics or a lack of adequate vitamin and mineral supplementation. That means all 75,000 miles of your arteries, veins and capillaries may be full of plaque that can cause a blockage.
But new research indicates that two key nutrients can help you combat the causes of heart problems, toxic build-up and decreasing energy levels.
As a medical professional, I agree with modern science that indicates consuming a high-fat diet can lead to heart disease, but new evidence has surfaced to explain the process. Research from the University of Cincinnati examined high-fat diets and the effect they can have on the adipose—or fatty—tissue surrounding the coronary arteries. Neil Weintraub, M.D., and colleagues found that the fats cells were highly inflamed, which suggests that the blood vessels could become inflamed. This is one of the first indicators of clogged arteries, or atherosclerosis.
Another startling discovery showed that rats on a high-fat diet for only two weeks already showed the effects of inflammation in the tissue around the arteries.
“These new findings suggest a direct link between poor dietary habits and inflammation of blood vessels, mediated by the fat cells surrounding the blood vessel wall,” said lead author Weintraub.
In order to maintain healthy blood vessels and help reverse the effects of a high-fat diet, I suggest oral chelation with the amino acid ethylenediamine tetra-acetic acid—or EDTA.
Indeed, EDTA chelation is very controversial—especially when discussed as an alternative to expensive heart surgery. The truth is, most doctors are inexperienced when it comes to chelation and don’t understand how it really works.
There are a few thousand doctors in the United States who perform intravenous (I.V.) chelation in their offices, but the vast majority of doctors have not witnessed the impressive results of EDTA for themselves.
Like nearly every other area of medicine, you will find articles “for” and “against” chelation. It is interesting how medicine is presented to the public—through the eyes and interests of the controlling parties who stand to profit the most.
Keep in mind, doctors and surgeons who continue to gain huge profits by performing angiograms… placing stents… performing balloon angioplasties… and cracking the heart open… do not want to read glowing reviews about this therapy.
And heart drug-related pharmaceutical companies would love to see chelation proven ineffective—to keep their competition down!
However, clinical and scientific studies show that the nutrient EDTA is effective at helping eliminate plaque from the arteries.
Here’s how it works: EDTA binds to the calcium deposits stuck to your vessel walls and carries them to the kidneys. Those plaque deposits are then safely carried out of your body with the urine. This process opens up your small vessels and blood can flow freely throughout your body.
What’s more, by increasing the circulation of your life-giving blood, EDTA can help:
- Promote healthy blood pressure
- Reduce chest pain
- Reduce swelling in your legs and ankles
- Maintain good HDL cholesterol levels
- Promote healthy kidney function
- And more!
Linus Pauling, Ph.D., two-time Nobel Prize-winning scientist states, “Published research and extensive clinical experience showed that EDTA helps reduce and prevent arteriosclerotic plaques, thus improving blood flow to the heart and other organs. The scientific evidence indicates that a course of EDTA chelation might eliminate the need for bypass surgery.”
The evidence speaks for itself—the benefits of chelation are remarkable. In fact, if you suffer from age-related memory loss… poor vision… constant colds and flu… cold hands and feet… and more… then EDTA chelation can help reduce those symptoms, too.
