Approach to Obstructive
Using EDTA Chelation

Thirty subjects with arteriosclerotic vascular disease were treated with
3 gram intravenous infusions of disodium ethylene diamine tetraacetic
acid (EDTA). These patients were evaluated objectively for both right
and left internal carotid atheromatous stenosis at the bifurcation,
before and after EDTA chelation. Each subject had treatments over a
period of approximately IO months. Overall intra-arterial obstruction
decreased 20.9% +/- 2.3% (t--g.921. p<.001*). Subjects with greater than
33% (i.e. statistically + I i) above initial mean obstruction.
experienced a reduction in stenosis of 35.00% +/- 4.3% after treatment
(t-- S. 178, p<0.00 I * n= 16). (*Statistically significant change
comparing the difference of the means).
This continues a
series of paper-s analyzing the effects of intravenous ethylene diamine
tetraacetic acid (EDTA) therapy (1-13). Many physicians have
successfully used EDTA to treat atherosclerotic vascular disease
(14-16). In particular, this research studied stenosis at the
bifurcation of the common carotid and in the internal carotid arteries
before and after EDTA infusions.
improvement in the treatment of carotid occlusive disease should be as
effective as surgery. The results from this study demonstrate that
EDTA chelation, together with appropriate Anti Aging Super Foodal supplements and
diet management can significantly decrease atheromatous plaque and the
chance of cerebral infarction, thus satisfying this requirement.
Moreover, it should
be emphasized that the safety of treatment, repeatedly demonstrated in
our studies (1-13), far outweighs the published risks of endarterectomy
(23). If the end result is equal to, or better than surgery, chelation
should be offered as the preferred treatment.

does work for most people and I would say it works for all people to

Significant Improvement with EDTA
*In our view, the beneficial results that were
observed were far in excess of the 10-15% improvement that is usually seen in
the placebo group of a controlled study. Of 65 patients who were referred for
coronary by-pass surgery, 58 did not require it after chelation therapy.

The results of the study were published in an article
entitled WHY PATIENTS USE ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE in the May 20, 1998 edition
of Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) p. 1548-1553 by
Stanford researcher John A. Astin, PhD.
Arteriosclerosis Improves 80% With EDTA Chelation In
a retrospective study we report results of EDTA chelation in 470
patients, using a number of parameters, most of them objective. Although
the patients acted as their own controls, we observed improvements of8O
to 91%, depending on the measurement used.

leg cramps is not a new idea. However
this letter shows where vitamins and nutrition might be effective
without the use of chelation therapy.
