Very interesting. My sister just had a stent put in. She had a 90% blockage of her right coronary artery with no prior history. She was very lucky to get tested and treated in time.

I am glad that it has worked well for you and god bless! Welcome to Healthy Hearts! I always love to hear a great success story! Keep up the good work!

Sorry, but i feel the need to put a little health warning below to help benefit others:

While i agree EDTA has significant health advantages. The NIH has been doing studies on EDTA since 2003 with no official published results. It is believed to have benefits to cardiovascular health and the lowering of cholesterol. However, with that being said. Please be careful as EDTA is a chelator, which means it removes metals from the body, bad ones and good ones like zinc, iron, manganese, copper and cobalt leading to significant depletion, metabolic dysfunction and even more serious health ramifications.

If you take EDTA via oral, IV, or suppository, pleae be sure to replenish the minerals that you need daily. A simple CBC blood test will help you regulate how much to use. If you are on a dieuretic like Lasix, Torsemide, or Metolazone, be extra extra careful as these also deplete minerals in the body.

I was just reading The Spark book and it reminded me of about three years ago I had to have stent put in. The amazing thing that came out of this was the Doctor told me that acouple of my original blockages that happened in 1988, were nearly clear. He coludn't explain why this happened except that I had been taking EDTA for along time. Also when we spent the winter in Las Cruses, NM. We went to a holistic doctor. She ran the whole gamet of Blood work and started both I and my Wife on intravienous EDTA. We went three times a week and I credit that for the way I feel to day. Normally the intravienous EDTA cost about $3000.00, but inNew Mexico it is paid for by the state. My ownly problem now is that I am about 45 lbs over weight. That why my doctor recommended The Sparks Diet. She should know as she is on also. Hope my story will help someone. We are now walking for 30 minutes twice a day. I have never been great on excersie after 21 years in the Air Force. Have good day and God Bless you all.
