A timeline for EDTA chelation therapy and cardiovascular disease
Terry Chappell, John Trowbridge and Michael Schachter    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Chelation, from the Greek word "chele" meaning claw, implies that an organic molecule binds a cation — charged mineral — in a pincer-like fashion, forming a heterocyclic ring structure. The most widely accepted use of chelation therapy is for the removal of toxic minerals such as lead from the body. A more controversial indication, discovered serendipitously during treatment of patients suffering with lead toxicity, involving the use of the chelating agent disodium ethylene diaminetetraacetic acid, is in the treatment of all forms of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease.

Answering the tough questions: Handling negative media
Aaron Chappell Deckert, MSOD    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Handling the distress of negative criticism can be challenging, scary and overwhelming — whether from the media, a determined patient or a disgruntled employee. This type of interaction is an invitation to enter drama and that is rarely productive for either party. It is can also be opportunity to shine, to set yourself apart and to demonstrate that you are trustworthy, knowledgeable and consistent. More

Three years ago, when we asked Richard Plumb, D.O., to be the program chairman of our Advanced Metal Toxicology Course, he said, "I'm not an expert; all I know is what I want to learn." This made him perfect for the job. Now, Rick has done it again with a fantastic lineup of new lectures to advance our practice of chelation therapy. This is Rick's dream list, and while not all of them are confirmed, you can bet he'll bring down the house with new ideas and expert reviews. More

Philosophy and history of science: Questioning statistics
Richard R. Mason, D.O.    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Evolution of predicting future outcomes in the scientific world have depended on keen observation and the use of the mathematical sciences of statistics and probability.

Boyd E. Haley, Ph.D.    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Our new chelator, called NBMI for research purposes, has been tested and shown effective at preventing the "leakage" of aortic endothelial cell and intestinal epithelial cell membranes on exposure to mercury, methyl mercury and thimerosal. Regarding the cardiovascular issue, NBMI was very effective at preventing the abnormal biochemistry and oxidative stress associated with the development of atherosclerotic plaques that was induced by these mercury compounds and an organic toxin called bleomycin. Here are three research articles on NBMI:
