I am an osteopathic physician, for those unfamiliar osteopathic physicians we are trained and practice in all medical arenas. The reason we are special is our additional basic training in osteopathic manipulative therapy and idea that symptoms are an indication of abnormal function and not the disease itself. So although you cannot tell an MD from a DO these days it used to be easy. DO’s used to search for the underlying cause of an ailment and used prescriptive drugs sparingly. I am very old fashioned.
Just as we are anticipating the National Institute of Health’s results from a study on chelation therapy and its effect in heart disease, comes noise from the American College of Medical Toxicology. At their recent conference, as described by the newsletter from the Alliance for Natural Health USA www.ahn-usa.org, they attacked chelation therapy as dangerous and this conference was for CME hours for physicians. If these doctors bought the brainwash, they have relegated themselves to health problems as they age because they will not avail themselves of chelation therapy. Heart disease, high blood pressure and auto immune diseases await them as they do all of us as well.
We, however, will escape health problems as we age, as will our patients, because we have examined the myriad of medical proof of years of study and hundreds of articles citing the benefits of chelation therapy for the problems of aging including heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure and the aging process itself. If you want to age gracefully, with vigor, seek chelation therapy. You have the backing of the Saunders medical textbook entitled “Cardiovascular Drug Therapy” and its chapter on chelation therapy and how it works along with its 65 references. Or perhaps you would be more impressed to know that JAMA published an article relating small amounts of lead in the body to the development of high blood pressure. Although that article did not suggest how to remove the lead, we know how. They also relate accumulated lead in the body to the development of cataracts in men in a separate article. Or perhaps you need the assurance that you are on the right track in healing from the article in “Neuro Toxicology Letters” which discussed the relationship of mercury in laboratory animal brains with lesions similar to those of alzheimer’s patients. Heavy metal in the body causes disease processes. Medical research has validated that fact.
Now, knowing that, what do they recommend to remove metals? Apparently they have an aversion to you being helped. They have no recommendation. They will do surgery which does not remove lead, they will add to the toxicity of your body by giving you drugs but they will not address the cause of metal toxicity and they will not even test your levels of lead when you turn up with heart palpitations and high blood pressure. Why? Because it is political, financial and “how do I explain my position to the good ole boys” problem for the establishment and they need the comfort of the masses at the club.
