Cardiovascular Health/Chelation Therapy
Dr. Jose Henriquez has over two decades of outstanding success with EDTA chelation therapy for the treatment and alleviation of heart disease. Cardiovascular disease, also known as heart disease, is the #1 killer of men and women in North America and a leading cause of permanent disability. Many significant vascular problems go undetected until it is too late. Integrative Whole Health Clinic offers the latest technology of testing and screening which includes, but not limited to, coronary artery risk assessment and a Duplex examination of the carotid arteries, which is a combination of Doppler and Ultrasound.
Clinical experience with EDTA chelation therapy has convinced many licensed physicians in North America and around the world that it is a safe and effective treatment for atherosclerotic vascular disease, (hardening of the arteries), as it consistently improves blood flow and relieves its associated symptoms.
Used in combination with vitamins and minerals, EDTA (ethylenediamine tetra-acetic acid) is a remarkable arterial cleansing agent, with the ability to effectively remove the plaque, mineral deposits, cholesterol and heavy metals which restricts, congests, and impedes blood flow and oxygen throughout the many blood vessels within the body.
EDTA has a composition very similar to common vinegar. It was synthesized in the 1930‘s, and first used in intravenous injections as a vital treatment for people who had been exposed to toxic levels of mercury, lead, aluminum, and cadmium. Following these initial uses, those patients suffering from angina and coronary artery disease, noticed substantial improvement of their symptoms. This prompted the first studies to discover the therapeutic effects of EDTA in heart disease.
The chelation process is comprehensive, EDTA clears the bloodstream of heavy metals by seeking them out and binding to them. The body then flushes out the EDTA, taking the metals along with it. There are two theories for why chelation therapy works. One is that the EDTA binds to free radicals, highly active molecular fragments that can damage tissue and perhaps the lining of the blood vessels. The other theory is that it binds to calcium and other minerals in the bloodstream, resulting in a series of actions that improves the cellular and vascular health.
