Chelation, Vitamins Found to Cut Heart Risk

Newly published research shows that chelation therapy combined with vitamins greatly reduces the risk for heart disease.

Chelation, a once-controversial alternative therapy, is gaining increased acceptance among mainstream doctors.

The new study, led by Gervasio A. Lamas, M.D., at the Columbia University Division of Cardiology at Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami, randomly assigned more than 1,700 heart attack survivors to receive 40 rounds of chelation therapy and oral vitamins or drug-free placebo infusions at 134 clinics in the U.S. and Canada over 4 ½ years.

Chelation and high-dose vitamins were found to reduce the risk of future cardiovascular problems by 26 percent, compared to those who received a placebo. In heart attack survivors with diabetes, the benefits of the combo therapy were even greater — a whopping 51 percent — according to the findings, published online in the American Heart Journal.

Of course it's expensive! Of course insurance doesn't cover it! And this treatment has been around since World War I. That's a crying shame.
