You’re only as old as your blood vessels.
Heart attacks, strokes, TIA’s, intermittent claudication and erectile dysfunction are signs that your arteries aren’t delivering the blood and oxygen necessary for your organs and muscles to do their jobs. Diseases of the heart and blood vessels are the second most likely cause of death behind cancer in Canada. Healthy circulation brings the good and washes away the bad to keep your body humming along at its best.
While cholesterol, blood pressure, diabetes, and smoking get most of the attention as risk factors, there are other well established independent risk factors that have yet to trickle down through the medical institution. The bottom line is that it’s inflammation in the blood vessels that leads to the development of plaques and the stiffening of the vessels.
Anything that causes inflammation in the blood vessels will cause cardiovascular disease. These include toxic metals (like lead, cadmium and mercury) and infections (like C. penumoniae, and others that cause gingivitis).
Chelation is derived from the greek word “Chelos” which means claw. When administered to the body orally or intravenously, a chelating agent circulates throughout the body and grabs hold of toxic metals like lead, cadmium and mercury to help facilitate their elimination from the body in the urine. Chelation therapy is offered at this clinic, however the risks and benefits should be discussed in the context of a consultation with the Doctor after a review of your health history.
