Dr. Garry Gordon, the "Father" of chelation therapy
Dr. Garry Gordon is obviously not a handmaiden of the drug industry. That alone sets him far apart from the great majority of medical researchers and writers.
I recommend Dr. Gordon's materials to you for a full and accurate understanding of the role of oral EDTA in the health of this planet, as well as your own life.
Dr. Garry Gordon espouses many different 'substances' for improving health. Virtually NONE of those are prescription drugs. Of all of Dr. Gordon's recommendations, the artificial amino acid called "EDTA", is probably the most important to the health of people today. His lectures on health matters are jewels of valuable data - don't miss them.
Dr. Gordon received his Doctor of Osteopathy in 1958 from the Chicago College of Osteopathy in Illinois. He received his Honorary MD degree from the University of California Irvine in 1962 and completed his Radiology Residency from Mt. Zion in San Francisco, California in 1964. For many years, he was the Medical Director of Mineral Lab in Hayward, California, a leading laboratory for trace mineral analysis worldwide.
Dr. Gordon is on the Board of Homeopathic Medical Examiners for Arizona and is Co-Founder of the American College for Advancement in Medicine (ACAM). He is Founder/President of the International College of Advance Longevity (ICALM) and Board Member of International Oxidative Medicine Association (IOMA). With Morton Walker, DPM, Dr. Gordon co-authored the book "The Chelation Answer".
Dr. Gordon is advisor to the American Board of Chelation Therapy and past instructor and examiner for all chelation physicians. He is responsible for Peer Review for Chelation Therapy in the State of Arizona. As an internationally recognized expert on chelation therapy, Dr. Gordon is now attempting to establish standards for the proper use of and intravenous chelation therapy as an adjunct therapy for all diseases.
Dr. Garry Gordon: Significant lead lowering with oral EDTA
According to Dr. Gordon, for those of us with the propensity to look, the evidence is there: EDTA has an impact on cardiovascular disease, reduces clotting problems, reduces iron and heavy metal stores already in the body and results in reduced free radicals.
Numerous abstracts and published articles (1) from mainstream medicine indicate an increase of excretion of lead with oral EDTA from 3 to 30 times (without exception). Virtually every one of these articles describes significant lead lowering benefits from the oral ingestion of EDTA.
Was oral EDTA intentionally pushed to the sidelines of mainstream medicine?
According to Dr. Garry Gordon, the main problem which led to the loss of favor of oral EDTA around 1960 was the American Medical Association (AMA)ís strong concern regarding its potential for abuse by industrial physicians who would use the tablets instead of demanding that management improve the working environment.
It is well documented that many of us have adverse health effects because of the levels of lead found in everyone today. Since there are no safe lead levels and these adverse effects have been documented at every measurable level, the widespread use of non-toxic and inexpensive therapies for removing lead - such as oral chelation therapy - must take on greater importance. Oral EDTA must once again be brought to center stage and evaluated versus other far more expensive and clearly more toxic therapies, such as penicillamine and DMSA.
The EDTA product I recommend can be found here . Natural zinc and mineral supplements should accompany EDTA therapy. By aggressively administering zinc, any potential for zinc deficiency associated with oral EDTA therapy is entirely avoided. In my opinion, the lowest price on the internet for high quality multi-mineral supplements is here .
