heavy metals

  1. Chelation removes blockages in carotid arteries

    Blockages in carotid arteries can lead to brain damage

    If your car has a clogged fuel line, your engine isn't going to get the gas it needs -- and you're going to be sitting by the side of the road, waiting for a tow truck.

    Your body isn't a car. But in some ways, it's not all that different.

    You've got a fuel line, too. It's your arteries, and if they get clogged... well... you're going to be waiting for an ambulance instead of a tow truck as you suffer from a heart attack or stroke.

    And the damage doesn't end there.

    Your brain accounts for about 3 percent of your body weight, but it uses 20 percent of your body's oxygen, which is delivered via your blood (along with all the nutrients and everything else it needs).

    The "fuel line" that pumps it all to your brain are the carotid arteries in your neck -- the same artery vampires are always trying to sink their fangs into in the movies.

    As the plaque builds up in that artery, the diameter shrinks. As it shrinks, your brain gets less of what it needs. And if you lose 50 percent of that diameter due to plaque, you could suffer from problems with thinking, memory and motor function, even if you don't suffer from a heart attack or stroke, according to a new study.

    Blockages in your arteries are also a risk factor for more serious cognitive problems -- including dementia and Alzheimer's disease.

    The safest and best way to clear blockages from your arteries -- especially your carotid arteries -- is with chelation therapy.

    Chelation removes the toxins that have been building up in your blood, pulls dangerous metals out of your body and breaks up the blockages all at once.

    A 1991 study found that EDTA chelation therapy is highly effective at reducing the blockages that mark carotid stenosis, but that's not all it can do. Other studies have shown that chelation can also protect the heart, prevent stroke and even help keep dementia at bay.

    Avoid "fast" chelation and any supposed at-home treatments that claim to mimic chelation. The one form of treatment backed by solid research is traditional chelation, which will need to be performed over a number of sessions under the care of an experienced holistic medical doctor.

    I should know; this is one of my specialties. And if you're in Southern California, I can run some tests that can help determine whether chelation is right for you.

  2. Arsenic in rice is unsafe

    FDA wrong about arsenic in rice

    There is no safe level of arsenic. None.

    That might sound obvious, but arsenic in rice and water has been turning up with alarming frequency -- and the FDA is too afraid to warn you about it. If there's any industry they fear almost as much as the drug industry, it's the food industry.

    Yes, the FDA is afraid of both the "F" and the "D" in its own name.

    So instead of telling you the truth about arsenic -- that you should avoid it completely -- the agency actually went ahead and issued a statement on arsenic in rice so absurd it would be laughable... if it weren't so dangerous.

    The agency claims the high arsenic levels detected in rice -- high levels confirmed by its own tests -- are nothing to worry about. It won't kill you on the spot, so it's OK to keep eating rice.

    But the agency also claims it doesn't know what the long-term effects of all that arsenic exposure could mean for your health -- and that's just plain false.

    We know plenty.

    We know that the arsenic in rice and other products can accumulate in the body, and when it does it can damage your immune system and increase your risk of cancer -- especially cancers of the bladder, lung and skin.

    We know arsenic can increase the risk of heart disease, diabetes and more.

    And we know that arsenic can build up in the brain and cause dementia or dementia-like symptoms.

    If rice were your only source of exposure, eating it regularly would still be enough to cause serious long-term damage in my opinion.

    But it's not -- because arsenic is turning up in everything from apple juice to tap water. And as I told you last year, it's even intentionally fed to chickens so their meat looks nice and pink in the supermarket.

    The feds won't tell you any of this because they're too busy protecting the corporate giants that produce and sell chicken, rice, apple juice and more.

    But I'm here to protect just one person: You.

    So take my word for it and limit your exposure to arsenic in rice and all other sources. And while you're at it, get tested for arsenic and other metals if you haven't done so already.

    A holistic doctor can run those tests and work with you on a detox program if you've been exposed (and, odds are, you have been exposed). And if you're in Southern California, I can help. Contact my clinic to make an appointment.

    I'm also available for one-on-one consultations via telephone. Call 855-DOC-MARK for more information or to make an appointment.

  3. B vitamins can help protect against memory problems

    A new study confirms that ordinary B vitamins can fight dementia slowing down the physical deterioration in the brain that goes with it.
  4. 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.
  5. You're slowly being poisoned

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