A woman is interested in IV chelation therapy to treat blocked arteries. What are reader experiences with this, whether at home or abroad? IV chelation therapy has significant benefits, but it is also very controversial. If you do go the IV route, make sure you take a good multivitamin/mineral formula with zinc, calcium and magnesium. One woman reported excellent results from her father's IV chelation therapy from the Arterial Disease Clinic in Leigh, Wigan. One problem encountered, however, was that after many treatments (30 or 40), the doctor had trouble finding a suitable vein to use - her father's veins seemed to collapse. One 68-year-old man chose EDTA chelation over an angiogram to manage his chest pains. He had therapy twice a week for the first 30 treatments, and now goes once a month. His blood pressure is normal and he is now free of his heart blockage. Oral chelation is cheaper, but less of the EDTA is absorbed. With oral chelation therapy, N-acetylcysteine and chlorella (which binds to mercury) can have added benefits. One woman used chelation supplements of Trisodium EDTA (as opposed to IV), which she obtained from an American firm. She also used ginkgo biloba (for capillaries), flaxseed oil (to soften arteries), multi-minerals (to replace necessary minerals removed by chelation) and B complex vitamins at the same time. It took a good month to work completely, but her blood pressure has now come down to a reasonable level. Finally, one reader recommends a product called NDF+ (a tincture made from chlorella, cilantro and probiotics) instead of IV chelation therapy, stating that it is faster, cheaper, more effective, and can be used in your own home. Before choosing any chelation method, make sure you research the different alternatives, their possible side effects, and costs.
