Chelation therapy: Diabetes Quelling therapies

More than two million patients have benefited in the past 60 years from this unconventional form of treatment

A long-suffering diabetic, Dr Ronald Hahnbaum of USA, had developed gangrene in both his feet. He was advised amputation by a surgeon. However, he decided to undergo chelation therapy. Drips were administered twice a week. After three months of treatment, his feet were in a much better shape and he could even wear shoes to go to work. After six months, there was a complete remission; there was no trace of wounds.

Many don’t know that chelation therapy may offer an inexpensive and safer alternative for diabetics who have difficulty in controlling their blood sugar levels. If administered properly, there are no long-term side-effects; it is highly effective as a preventive measure as well. Invariably, diabetics are advised to take strict care of their diet and engage in activities like walking/aerobic exercises, yoga and pranayam. If these fail to control blood sugar, administering medicines becomes inevitable. Different medical traditions have different medicines to control blood sugar.

How can Chelox therapy help? Vitamins, minerals and chelators are injected into the patient’s body through saline (called drip) which patients can take while sitting on a sofa. A drip continues for two to three hours and does not cause much discomfort. Calcium and metallic ions bind with chelators and get excreted from the body through urine. Cholesterol deposits in the arteries reduce and blood flow to cells increases. This results in increased supply of oxygen and nutrients. This is the basic logic behind reversal of many degenerative diseases. For some patients, it becomes necessary to take 20 to 30 drips. Others may require 50 drips or more. If chelation therapy is taken as a preventive measure, about 10 drips suffice. The therapy is safe. Prior to 1957, when doctors did not have sufficient exposure to the concept, some seven patients died during therapy. However, with the protocol promulgated in the early 1960s, about two million patients have taken almost 40 million drips without any case of death.

Diabetic patients occasionally develop wounds on their feet which worsen rapidly as cells die. Left untreated, gangrene sets in and it can result in death in about six months. In such a situation, chelox therapy dramatically improves the condition. Almost 90% of patients so treated do not require amputation. How the blood supply in various arteries of a patient improved after 24 drips of chelation can be observed in X-rays. Improvement in the wound at the bottom of the feet in one patient becomes visible to all. Chelation therapy can be highly effective in diabetes.

Chelation therapy is effective in preventing or reversing heart disease as well. If 100 patients, recommended angioplasty or bypass surgery, are administered about 30 drips of chelation, the health of 90 to 92 out of the hundred improves so much that they are not required to undergo angioplasty or bypass surgery. Mortality and morbidity rate in chelation therapy is almost zero, whereas mortality in angioplasty and bypass surgery is about 1%-4%. These expensive procedures also carry high morbidity. Many such aspects have been elaborated in my book, Angioplasty, Bypass Surgery Myths and Chelation Therapy Facts.
Chelation therapy has proved effective in most cases of diabetics suffering from deteriorating visual acuity. Even non-diabetics suffering from age-related macular degeneration experience improved vision. In diabetic patients, kidney efficiency decreases. Eventually, such patients are recommended dialysis; but if they undergo chelox therapy, efficiency of their kidney improves and dialysis can be avoided or postponed. Often, frequency of dialysis can be reduced. If chelation therapy is taken as a preventive measure, the likelihood of the person suffering from serious diseases reduces considerably and lifespan increases by two to 12 years.

Chelox Therapy: Even for Non-diabetics
Chelox therapy is an excellent method of detoxifying the human body. It can provide relief to non-diabetics too. Ailments treated by chelox therapy with at least partial success are: coronary artery disease, valvular disease, cardio-myopathy, migraine, hormonal imbalance, macular degeneration, rheumatoid arthritis, schizophrenia, fibromyalgia, Raynaud’s Disease, Scleroderma, multiple sclerosis, Lou Gehrig’s Disease, Alzheimer’s Disease and Parkinson’s Disease. Some cases may have to be augmented by ozone therapy.

Diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration are caused by insufficient blood supply to the eyes. Diabetic retinopathy develops generally between the age of 40 and 60, whereas macular degeneration starts even in non-diabetics after the age of about 70. In both cases, the patient’s vision deteriorates.

A person with good eyesight has ‘visual acuity’ of 20/20. Persons with exceptionally good eyesight have visual acuity of 20/10. When a person has visual acuity of 20/200, or worse, he is considered to be blind. Dr GM Dhadphale MD (Path), DPB, FICS, aged 86, underwent chelation therapy for macular degeneration and other ailments. His visual acuity before therapy was 20/80. After only 10 drips, it improved to 20/60. He also regained his physical balance, improved speech and feels energetic. Similar is the case of a patient from USA, whose visual acuity was 20/400 in one eye and, in the other eye, it was immeasurably worse. After he underwent 30 drips, he could read the newspaper. Eventually, he went on to take 105 drips in one year when his eyesight in both eyes improved to 20/35.

In the US (and now in India as well), several doctors prefer expensive therapies rather than effective ones. Such doctors conspire to hide chelation therapy by not allowing its inclusion in the medical curriculum. Doctors in alternative medical systems consider chelation therapy as an allopathic treatment and do not include it in the ayurvedic, homeopathic or naturopathic curriculum. Hence, chelation therapy is not taught in medical schools. Many doctors, with the support of pharmaceutical companies, berate chelation and other effective but inexpensive therapies. Thus, patients stay away from these therapies and empirical research becomes difficult.

Chelation therapy is not as simple as telling the patient to take a tablet or drink a dose of liquid medicine. The therapy requires diligent mixing of 5 to 17 vitamins, minerals and chemicals to be injected intravenously. Ingredients and their proportions for reversing coronary artery disease differ from those required to treat diabetes. For most effective treatment, expertise is essential. However, some doctors start administering chelation drips after reading one or two articles on the Internet. In such cases, since similar chelation therapy is administered for everyone, the success rate is low. There are some cases where the patients have been harmed by improper chelation therapy. In a few cases, even very appropriate chelation treatments have failed to reverse the condition of the patient. After all, every individual is different.

It is desirable that more and more doctors become familiar with chelation therapy and start practising it.  Therefore, I organise chelation therapy training courses of one or two day’s duration.

What Is Chelation Therapy?

Chelox therapy uses chelation and oxygenation therapies alternately. Vitamins, minerals and chelators are injected into a patient’s body through saline. This mode of delivery is called a drip. The agents in the saline react with the toxins in the body, bond with metallic ions and get excreted. This results in increased supply of oxygen and nutrients to body cells. Actually, chelation therapy is a detoxification process. Apart from diabetes, it can be used to treat (at least partially) a variety of other ailments. It can reverse the degenerative effects of such diseases. The therapy can cost Rs20,000-Rs70,000 and yields no long-term side-effects. Temporary side-effects include occasional fatigue, heaviness in head and a feverish feeling.
