Bypass surgery due to plaqueStandard treatment of Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) and Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) focus on slowing down or stopping the growth of plaque and symptom reduction.

Aside from Atherectomy, which carries many risks including abrupt closure vessel, the immediate need for bypass surgery, and heart attack, Only Chelation Therapy goes to the source and works to remove existing plaque. Only Oral Chelation Therapy reaches every part of your 75,000 miles of veins and arteries - head to toe - to eliminate plaque whever it lies.

To follow is a summary of standard treatment options and procedures. More information can be found at sites such as the National ....... web site.

STANDARD TREATMENT OPTIONS

Treatment for Coronary Artery Disease my include lifestyle changes, medicines and special procedures. The goals of treatment are to:

  • Relieve symptoms
  • Slow or stop atherosclerosis by controlling or reducing the risk factors
  • Lower the risk of having blood clots form, which can cause a heart attack
  • Widen or bypass clogged arteries through surgical procedures

MEDICINES

  • Cholesterol Lowering Medicines
  • Anticoagulants (to prevent forming blood clots)
  • Aspirin - antiplatellet and thin the blood
  • ACE (angiotensin-converting enzyme) inhibitors - to lower blood pressure
  • Beta blockers - to slow your heart rate and blood pressure
  • Calcium channel blockers - relax blood vessels and lower blood pressure
  • Nitroglycerin - Widen coronary arteries
  • Long-acting nitrates - similar to nitroglycerin, longer acting
  • Glycoprotein IIb-IIIa inhibitor - very strong antiplatelet medicine used in hospitals during and after angioplasty
  • Thrombolytic agents - administered in the hospital to dissolve clots during a heart attack

*** These medicines generally come with side affects and care should be taken when deciding with your physician what to use.

SPECIAL PROCEDURES

  • ANGIOPLASTY (Balloon or laser)- To open blocked and narrow arteries. Sometimes a stent is placed to hold the artery open.
  • ATHERECTOMY - Plaque removal, primarilly for heart, arms and legs
  • CORONARY ARTERY BYPASS SURGERY - Surgeons take a segment of a healthy blood vessel from another part of the body and make a detour around the blocked part of the coronary artery.
  • Surgical Procedures are followed by extensive Cardiac Rehabilitation.

ALTERNATIVE OPTIONS

Chelation Therapy has been used successfully for over 60 years to remove arterial plaque through the entire body. It goes to the source of the problem and removes it, rather than working around it and continuing to struggle with narrow or hardened arteries.

Care should be taken when deciding what type of chelation therapy to implement. There are three methods and multiple formulations. Chelation can be administered in through the following methods:

  • IV
  • Oral (sublingual, liquid, capsule)
  • Suppository

IV Chelation is frequently used to remove heavy metal poisoning, as well as arterial plaque.

Intravenous or IV chelation is considered by many to be the superior treatment method. Some in the industry claim that oral chelation using EDTA is only 5% as effective as IV (intravenous) chelation. The people making those claims are the same ones providing IV (intravenous) chelation treatment.

Testimonials from individuals that have used IV or Suppository treatment and then used Cardio Care have consistently stated "Cardio Care is faster and much more effective in providing real health benefits than IV or suppository Chelation”.

While IV Chelation has proved effective for many, it also presents some risk. Because large amounts of solution are blasted through the veins, it is possible that a small piece of plaque can be redistributed causing danger of blocked arteries and stroke. IV Chelation is invasive, painful, and costly, requiring multiple treatments.

Oral and Suppository Chelation does not pose threat of plaque redistribution. However, one should be aware of the type of EDTA used. Some companies use much cheaper, inferior forms of EDTA - Industrial Grade. Some chelation products use chelators such as BAL, DMPS, and DMSA. There are concerns as to safety and effectiveness of these products.

The degree of assimilation will vary with the method taken. Suppository and capsule forms give the consumer a much lower assimilation, greatly reducing the effectiveness of the product. Liquid forms give the consumer a greater assimilation. But the greatest absorption possible is achieved through a sublingual method (under the tongue).

Rate of absorption - up to 60% for sublingual delivery vs. 5-18% absorption for capsule or liquid

The costs of IV Chelation:

You will have to take time out of your busy day... drive to the nearest chelation clinic... plop down into a chair... get poked with an I.V. needle... and sit there for up to three long hours while the EDTA is pump into you.

When it is over, the nurse will hand you a bill for up to $300 — and then tell you that you still have nine more treatments... 27 more hours in the chair... and another $2,700-worth of treatments to go.

And as if the $3,000 bill for your first set of treatments isn’t enough to break you, you discover that you need to come back in six months for another six treatments, another 18 hours in the chair and another $1,800 invoice!

CARDIO CARE contains the highest quality and safest chelator on the market - Pharmaceutical Grade EDTA, and is taken in the most effective manner sublingually.

Extra Stuff....

Physical Activity

Regular physical activity has many benefits such as helping you quit smoking, lose weight, reduce stress, lower blood pressure and increase HDL cholesterol. Doing aerobic exercise — using large muscles of the legs and arms — on most days of the week for 30 to 60 minutes helps your heart work more efficiently. Physical activities to improve your strength, flexibility and balance help you stay agile as you age.

Weight Loss

A 10-pound weight loss may help lower your blood pressure and improve both cholesterol and blood sugar. The tips and tools in this Web site can help you lose 5 to 10 pounds. Entering your height and weight in the Body Mass Index (BMI) calculator can help you determine if you’re overweight. Your waist circumference also helps determine whether you need to lose weight — all you need is an ordinary measuring tape.

Eating the right foods is important, especially when you have heart disease. A heart-healthy diet and physical activity help you maintain good health and reduce your risk of future heart problems. Good nutrition and weight control are a crucial part of your treatment plan because they help reduce your risk of heart attack or stroke.

The right foods and regular physical activity help you:

  • Make better use of the food you eat.
  • Control blood sugar.
  • Lower blood cholesterol.
  • Control blood pressure.
  • Lose weight and avoid gaining weight.
What is coronary artery bypass surgery?

This is a type of heart surgery. It's sometimes called CABG ("cabbage"). The surgery reroutes, or "bypasses," blood around clogged arteries to improve blood flow and oxygen to the heart.

The American Heart Association doesn't have a policy on this issue.

There are three primary methods of chelation therapy: Intravenous, Suppository and Oral. Unfortunately EDTA has become a commonly accepted name, and there are many forms and chemical formulas for the same basic product called EDTA. Therefore comparisons are very difficult to make. Some people claim a popular and widely used form "Calcium EDTA" which is already bonded to a calcium, will break apart after it is in the body, release the calcium it's bound to and then become available to bind to other calcium, this is not possible. A lack of understanding the concept of calcium exchange explains why studies have shown EDTA to be ineffective. Most forms of EDTA don't work well others don't work at all and almost all break down by stomach acids.

  • So which EDTA is best to use? .......the one in Cardio Care.
  • Which one is it?
  • What are the other ingredients in Cardio Care? That is a closely guarded secret of the doctor that formulated it.
