Are You Turning to Stone?
Actually, we all are. As we age, calcium leaves the bones and teeth where it belongs, and deposits itself in soft tissues of the body.
When the calcium deposits in the arteries, it is called arteriosclerosis.
If the arteries of the heart are affected, it can cause a heart attack.
If calcium deposits itself in the arteries of the brain, the result can be a stroke.
As a matter of fact, calcium finds it way into every part of the body causing the problems that we tend to associate with “old age.”
Here are some more examples.
Gallstones? You guessed it, calcium in the gall bladder.
Kidney stones? Calcium in the kidneys.
Calcium has also been seen in the lung and in the spleen.
When calcium gets into the skin, it causes wrinkles, and if it gets into the fatty tissue, it causes cellulite.
Calcium can show up just about everywhere, and wherever it goes, it causes problems. Circulation drops, toxins build up, oxygen levels drop. Now if calcium gets inside of an individual cell, that cell doesn’t have a heart attack, or a stroke. An individual cell, deprived of blood flow, unable to get nutrition in or toxins out can develop cancer.
As a matter of fact, a study out of Switzerland shows that people who do chelation (to remove toxic calcium) may reduce their risk of cancer 90%.
So the next question to ask is, “How can I get this excess calcium out?”
The answer is a process called chelation. Chelation has been used safely and effectively for the last 50 years to remove excess calcium out of the soft tissues. Not only that, but while it is removing the toxic calcium, it also takes with it lead, mercury, aluminum, cadmium, nickel, arsenic and uranium.
Chelation uses a synthetic amino acid called EDTA to bind to all of these toxic metals and safely escort them out the body. For the last 40 years, hundreds of thousands of people have used chelation to help improve their health. Up until now, it was only administered by IV in a doctor’s office. It was an uncomfortable and time-consuming procedure, assuming that you were even lucky enough to have a chelating physician in your area.
EDTA Chelation by Suppository?
Yes. Now you can have all the benefits of chelation in the privacy of your own home. EDTA, the active ingredient used in chelation therapy, is now available in a suppository form through your health care provider (to order Suppositories please see bottom of this article).
Unlike oral chelation, which you may have heard about, suppository EDTA is not destroyed by stomach acids, and so is a viable alternative to IV chelation.
Chelation may well be the most important thing you ever do for you health, and now, it’s available to you.
An Open Letter To Whom It May Concern
31 May 2000
I have been involved in the development of the EDTA suppositories since the idea was first conceived seven years ago. The suppository delivery system was developed because it meets a special need. The primary purpose was to produce a drug delivery system that was painless and effective for children and for adults that found it difficult to take chelation therapy because of time constraints.
Research studies showed that the uptake of EDTA was effective by the colonic route. The low molecular weight of EDTA of 292.1 facilitates efficient absorption through the colon wall. Moreover, there is an additional safety factor because it is in a special time-release formulation. There is clinical evidence available that the suppository is not only safe, but it is effective. It is my professional opinion that approximately 90% or more of the EDTA is absorbed through the colon. For additional information on this subject it will be helpful to review my book, The Scientific Basis of EDTA Chelation Therapy, by Halstead and Rozema 1977.
Keep up the good work.
Bruce W. Halstead, M.D.
How does suppository chelation compare with IV chelation?
IV chelation has one advantage and four disadvantages over suppository chelation. The advantage of IV chelation is that a larger amount of EDTA can be administered in a shorter amount of time. If a client is in a life threatening situation, this may be necessary.
1. A higher amount of EDTA over a shorter period is more stressful on the kidneys, through which the heavy metals must pass.
2. The ingredient used in IV chelation is Di-Sodium EDTA. This is a very caustic substance that burns tissue. That is why painkillers are injected into the IV bags. The painkillers do not stop the damage from happening; they only prevent you from feeling it. In addition, procaine, the painkiller normally used to cover up the damage is slightly toxic.
Magnesium Di-Potassium does not contain sodium and thus does not burn the body. No painkillers are required.
3. Di-Sodium EDTA raises sodium levels in the body. For most people taking chelation, this is not beneficial. More likely is that they are deficient in either magnesium or potassium or both making Magnesium Di-Potassium EDTA the logical choice.
4. Suppositories can be done non-invasively at home.
5. Cells have pumps in them specifically designed to remove sodium and bring in magnesium and potassium. Thus a magnesium and potassium based EDTA will be more readily brought into the cell to remove the toxic metals as opposed to a sodium based EDTA which will be kept out.
What about oral chelation?
Oral chelation is only 5% absorbed since it is destroyed by stomach acid. Since there is no acid in the colon, the EDTA in the colon is not destroyed when given as a suppository. Also, Di-Sodium EDTA, which is the active ingredient in most oral chelators, is known to cause hemorrhages (internal bleeding).
Is it safe?
EDTA has been used for the last 50 years in the medical field. No side effects have ever been reported. EDTA is generally recognized as safe by the FDA and has a lower toxicity than aspirin.
What is its shelf life?
EDTA is an antioxidant and a preservative, While we believe the shelf live to be decades, 3 years is the most that we are allowed to put the label.
How do I take it?
(See Protocols on next page.)
When should I take it?
In the evening, and you should have gone to the bathroom that day.
What should I notice?
If you are magnesium deficient, you may feel a wave of relaxation come over you in 5 to 10 minutes. The long term effects may include more stamina, better mood, better memory, younger appearance and resolution of chronic medical conditions.
How long should I take it?
Many people take it their entire lives.
How much Magnesium Di-Potassium is in each suppository?
What are the contraindications?
Like regular chelation the contraindications include kidney disease, nursing or pregnancy, tuberculosis, and blood thinning medication.
I’ve heard it helps with menstrual cramps, is this true?
Many of our clients tell us that a suppository will make menstrual cramps reduce or disappear within 10 minutes.
Does it hurt?
Like table salt, Magnesium Di-Potassium EDTA does not hurt normal tissue, but it will sting an open cut. If you find that the suppository stings, then you may have hemorrhoids, an anal fissure, or dry stools that cause slight abrasions to your rectum when you go to the bathroom. If the suppository stings, you may want to consider taking a butyeric acid supplement to help rebuild the colonic mucosa. Allergy research offers a product called ButyrEn than contains butyric acid. Butyric acid enemas are also available by prescription at some pharmacies. In most cases, any discomfort is temporary and minor.
I’ve heard that these really sting . . .
What you are referring to are Di-Sodium EDTA suppositories, not Magnesium Di-Potassium EDTA suppositories. Certain groups do make suppositories out of the sodium form of EDTA and these can be very painful. They have also been known to cause hemorrhaging (bleeding) severe enough to warrant hospitalization. This is because sodium EDTA is extremely caustic and burns tissues. This is not an issue with Magnesium Di-Potassium EDTA, which does not burn tissue.
It melted, what should I do?
The product will melt above 80 degrees Fahrenheit. If the seal did not break (if there is no yellow substance outside the wrapper) then squeeze the bottom of the suppository to reshape it, and put in the refrigerator to harden. If the product did come out of the wrapper, or if you want the product replaced simply mail us back the suppositories and we will send you new ones. In the summer months, we will send the product with freezer packs to keep cold during shipping.
The age minus 20 formula:
The formula that most chelating physicians use to determine the amount of chelation a client will require is calculated as age minus 20. As an example, a 46 year old client would require 26 IV treatments. Since one box of Medicardium is equivalent to one IV, then this same client would require 26 boxes.
The standard protocol for the administration of Medicardium is one suppository inserted into the rectum in the evening of the first day. No suppository is used on the next two evenings. On these two days the body is given a rest from the detoxification process. This will require one box of Medicardium every month.
Once the client has gone thorough their age minus 20 in boxes, they have removed a year’s worth of pathological soft tissue calcium (calcium deposits) as well as their accumulated lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic, nickel, aluminum, and uranium. Their body is now in a physiologically younger condition than before they started. At this point, the cancer study that shows a decrease in cancer risk from 3.5% to 35% now applies to them.
Preventative protocol: After the client has finished their initial round of chelation, they may wish to continue at a lower dose. One suppository per week is the amount of chelation normally suggested by anti-aging physicians to slow down the aging process.
As well as keeping further heavy metals and pathological calcium from accumulating in their bodies, the preventative protocol may have life extending properties. This preventative protocol requires one box of Medicardium per month.
Chelation will also pull out certain healthy minerals from the body as it takes out the toxic ones. As such, it is necessary to supplement the client with the following minerals: calcium, zinc, copper, manganese, cobalt and chromium.
We recommend Water Oz calcium, zinc, copper, manganese, cobalt and chromium minerals and E3Live, which contains all of the minerals in the correct ratio. We also recommend Water Oz selenium, which, while not removed by EDTA, is nevertheless deficient in most clients’ bodies.
Water Oz minerals contain pure colloidal minerals in angstrom size, which is the size of the minerals found in vegetable juice. They come in separate bottles because if mixed together and left to sit for any length of time they clump together and become less absorbable by the cells of the body. If you are not sure which minerals you need, ask for a Water Oz Protocol booklet to be included free with your next order of Road To Health products (ordered alone they are $5.00).
The Cost of Water Oz Minerals
Water Oz minerals (32 oz. bottles) are $35 each plus shipping. When you buy 4 or more at a time the price drops to $25 each plus shipping. The shipping varies by where you live (the maximum UPS shipping cost for one bottle in the US is $8.27 and, for 4 bottles, $10.46). To order call (800) 651-7080 or order over the Internet
One bottle of E3Live contains 16.2 ounces and is $25; there is a four-bottle minimum ($100) and $28 for FedEx shipping and the Styrofoam container it must be shipped in (a 5th bottle is included as a bonus). A bottle will last over 60 days if you take 1½ teaspoons daily. To order call (800) 651-7080 or order over the Internet
EDTA is also known to increase the body’s need for vitamin B-6.
EDTA also removes magnesium, but this is not a problem with Medicardium since it actually puts magnesium into the client. Iron is also removed by chelation, but this is a mineral that many of your clients may be too high in. In addition, although many clients use chelation in their anti-cancer regimens, iron intake must be carefully regulated in cancer clients. For this reason, iron will not be included in our mineral supplement.
The half-life of EDTA is 1 hour so within 8 hours over 98% of the EDTA is out of the bloodstream. Since you do not want the good minerals to bind to the EDTA, they should be taken first thing in the morning, and the suppositories should be inserted before going to sleep. This will assure that most of the EDTA is out of the bloodstream when the minerals are taken, and that they are fully absorbed before the next suppository is taken approximately 16 hours later.
EDTA should not be used without medical supervision with pregnant or nursing mothers. EDTA is also contraindicated with Tuberculosis and kidney disease.
Since the suppository will most likely be cold upon insertion, it may tingle for a few minutes. Like table salt, Magnesium Di-Potassium EDTA will not hurt healthy tissue, but will sting on an open cut. If the client reports any burning, he or she probably either has hemorrhoids, or has been constipated lately, and a dry stool may have irritated the colon on its way out. Coating the suppository with Vaseline or solidified ozonated olive oil will eliminate the sting.
Since suppositories in general and magnesium in particular may make the client want to evacuate, it is important that they have gone to the bathroom to pass stool that day.
If there is no stool in the lower colon, then there is rarely a problem.
Since the suppository is fully dissolved in 30 minutes, if the client feels the need to evacuate at that point, no product will be lost.
