chelation therapy

  1. New attack on chelation is a threat to your mental health

    Exposure to toxic metals is often behind some of today's most common chronic conditions -- and there's one safe, proven, and effective way to rid the body of those metals.

    So naturally, it's coming under attack.

    In a stunning display of ignorance, the American College of Medical Toxicology is urging doctors to reject time-tested chelation therapy. And at a recent conference hosted by the CDC, the group actually called on its members to report doctors who use it.

    I'm not sure what they're supposed to report, since chelation isn't illegal. In fact, it's the FDA-approved treatment for the removal of heavy metals such as lead from the body.

    The fact that they want doctors to start tattling on other doctors who use this perfectly legal treatment is bad enough. But what makes this so much worse is the fact that the Federation of State Medical Boards sent representatives to the conference, according to a report from the Alliance for Natural Health.

    That's a sign that other states could soon follow Kentucky's lead and put a backdoor ban on chelation therapy by forbidding doctors from discussing it with their patients.

    In Kentucky, simply talking about this legal treatment can get your license yanked -- so if you're a patient who lives in that state and actually needs chelation, be prepared to drive a long way (or move).

    What's amazing about all this is that there isn't a single doctor -- mainstream or alternative -- who will claim mercury, lead, arsenic, and more belong in the body.

    There's total agreement that they're poisons.

    The disagreement comes over what they do at what levels. The mainstream takes an all-or-nothing approach here, claiming that very high levels of metals are toxic and deadly and should be removed through chelation.

    But lower levels -- even levels just below that "poison" threshold -- are perfectly safe and require nothing at all.

    That's what they say, anyway. But science (and common sense) tell us otherwise: A toxin dangerous enough to kill you at high levels could hurt you at lower ones, and studies have implicated even low levels of these metals in everything from osteoarthritis to heart disease to autism. And clinical experience tells me that everyone's genetic ability to detoxify these metals varies greatly.

    If you're battling a chronic illness that your own physician hasn't been able to solve, visit a holistic doctor who can test your levels of these metals.

    You might be surprised by the results -- and how quickly you can be cured. But you'd better hurry... this cure might not be around much longer.

  2. You're slowly being poisoned

    Want a shock? Go get tested for heavy metals. Your jaw will drop when you see the results.

    I know, because I see the reactions in my own clinic every single day.

    The reality is, nearly everyone has way too much lead, mercury, arsenic, and other toxic heavy metals inside them -- and these metals are a major cause of supposedly incurable conditions.

    I say "supposedly" because I often can cure or improve them, and I'll tell you everything you need to know to get started on your own cure in a moment.

    First, a new study confirms the role of toxic heavy metals in autoimmune disease -- especially among women battling disorders such as thyroid disease, MS, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, and lupus.

    Researchers examined data on 2,047 women who took part in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey and compared blood levels of mercury to the presence of the autoantibodies made by the thyroid in response to autoimmune diseases.

    Sure enough, women with the highest blood levels of mercury were more than twice as likely to have high levels of the thyroglobulin antibody linked to those diseases.

    Now, you've probably heard that we all get exposed to metals, and that's true. It's almost impossible to avoid them completely.

    But you've probably also heard that the tiny levels we're routinely exposed to -- like the mercury in flu shots and amalgam dental fillings -- are harmless, and that's an out-and-out falsehood.

    Want proof? Look no further than the same new study, because the "high" levels of mercury linked to those high levels of the thyroglobulin autoantibody weren't high by current standards at all.

    In fact, they were under 5 micrograms of mercury per liter -- or well in line with what the mainstream considers "safe."

    You see, no amount of mercury, lead or other heavy metals is really safe. How do I know that? Simple: There's no known healthy function in the human body for these metals!

    If you suspect exposure to mercury or any other heavy metal, it's not enough to find the source and eliminate it. Heavy metals don't leave the body like other toxins. They accumulate -- and the more they accumulate, the sicker you get.

    The best way to rid your body of mercury and other toxic heavy metals is through chelation, but don't try any of the do-it-yourself treatments that reach the market from time to time.

    An experienced holistic doctor can test you for metals and provide you with the chelation therapy needed to remove anything that's accumulated -- and if you have thyroid disease, that's another reason to get tested for these metals.
