9/2/98 Chelation therapy, as practiced by the ACAM protocol, is a safe, effective and relatively inexpensive treatment to restore blood flow in patients with atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) without surgery.Chelation therapy involves the intravenous infusion of a prescription medicine called ethylene diamine tetra-acetic acid (EDTA), vitamins and minerals. Conditions that have improved following chelation therapy include: Angina pectoris (chest pain due to restricted blood supply to the heart) Intermittent claudication (leg pain due to restricted blood supply to the legs) Gangrene (tissue death, usually seen in the toes of diabetics with insufficient blood supply) Symptoms of insufficient blood supply to the brain Chelation therapy is completely legal, and is among the safest of medical procedures. More than 400,000 patients have received over four million treatments during the past 30 years. Not one death has been directly caused by chelation therapy, when properly administered by a physician who was fully trained and competent in the use of this therapy.
Chelation therapy can be utilized in conjunction with most other therapies for cardio-vascular disease.The need for drugs is often reduced or eliminated after a course of chelation therapy. Chelation therapy is best utilized to avoid cardiac bypass surgery, but many patients who have previously undergone one or more bypass procedures have subsequently benefitted greatly from chelation therapy. Coronary bypass surgery is the mechanical repair of only small portions of the arterial tree. Total costs average about $45,000. Chelation therapy is an office treatment which generally improves blood flow throughout the entire vascular system at a fraction of the cost of bypass surgery.For example, if 20 to 40 four-hour chelation treatments in a physician’s office were required for a given patient, it would cost an estimated $2000-$4000.

These can be ordered from most bookstores. The titles are: Bypassing Bypass, and 40 Something Forever. Bibliography E.D Hirsh,The chelnation therapy you need,Doubleday 1996.
