Evidence concerning the health benefits of chelation therapy keeps growing. Soon, medical authorities worldwide will be issuing formal apologies to all those doctors who were investigated and had licences revoked for helping their patients with chelation therapy, right?
As you know, even though the former – growing evidence for chelation therapy – is true, the chances of any medical authority or government health department ever admitting it was wrong are 0%, so let’s move on to a recent research report about a benefit of chelation therapy.
According to new data from the TACT study 1 presented at ‘AHA 2013’ (the American Heart Association’s 2013 annual meeting) chelation therapy reduced cardiovascular events and death in patients with diabetes. (No significant cardiovascular risk reduction was found in those without diabetes.)
Diabetic heart risks plummeted
Those with diabetes demonstrated a 41% overall reduction of any cardiovascular event; 40% reduced risk for death from heart disease, non-fatal stroke or non-fatal heart attack; a 52% reduction in recurrent heart attacks; and a 43% reduction in death from any cause.
According to Gervasio Lamas, one of the researchers and Chairman of Medicine and chief of the Columbia University division of Cardiology at Mt. Sinai Medical School in the US: “These are striking results that, if supported by future research, could point the way toward new treatments to prevent complications of diabetes.”
Even though the data from this study showed significant reductions in cardiovascular risk for diabetics but not those without diabetes, there were very likely other health benefits for both groups. Among other things, chelation is proven to remove toxic metals from tissues throughout our bodies, and research shows that nearly all of us have a significant ‘toxic metal burden’.
So is it good for anyone’s health – diabetic or not – to remove lead from brain cells, cadmium from kidneys, and other toxic metals from multiple locations in the body? Even a secondary school biology student would answer that one correctly: Yes, it is!
It’s true that scientific research has not yet proven that getting the lead out of our brains is good for us, but – when and if it’s studied – it’s very, very likely to be the case, and even more likely if we use HCG (see page 4) and low-dose lithium (see Nutrition & Healing for August 2012 and October 2009) to aid neural recovery. Let’s hope that serious research into all of the potential for chelation therapy is done in the future.
In the meantime: if you’re diabetic, it’s now proven that chelation therapy will significantly reduce your cardiovascular risk!
Wishing you the best of health,
