Some people don't have insurance so I am sure that this happens alot.

It is pretty sad.

I saw this commercial the other day and was kinda freaked out.

If you can get checked out then please get your heart checked.

Most of the local hospitals offer free heart checks.


You might want to call them to see when their next free check is taking place.

You Can Reverse 50 Years of Artery Plaque


Chelation therapy is the administration of chelating agents to remove heavy metals from the body. For the most common forms of heavy metal intoxication—those involving lead, arsenic or mercury—the standard of care in the USA dictates the use of Dimercaptosuccinic acid (DMSA). Other chelating agents, such as 2,3-dimercapto-1-propanesulfonic acid (DMPS) and alpha lipoic acid (ALA), are used in conventional and alternative medicine.


Scientific studies have proven this one nutrient is up to 82% effective at eliminating rogue calcium from plaque, causing clogs to soften, and be flushed away.


As plaque is flushed away, healthy blood flow is restored to the heart, brain, muscles, and every organ in your body.


Chelating agents were introduced into medicine as a result of the use of poison gas in World War I. The first widely used chelating agent—the organic dithiol compound dimercaprol, also named British Anti-Lewisite or BAL—was used as an antidote to the arsenic-based poison gas, Lewisite. It binds the arsenic in Lewisite with two strong chemical bonds with the SH groups ("mercaptans"), forming a water soluble compound that entered the bloodstream, allowing it to be removed from the body by the kidneys and liver. BAL had severe side-effects.


After World War II, a large number of navy personnel suffered from lead poisoning as a result of their jobs repainting the hulls of ships. The medical use of EDTA as a lead chelating agent was introduced. Unlike BAL, it is a synthetic amino acid; it contains no mercaptans. While EDTA had some uncomfortable side effects, they were not as severe as BAL.


In the 1960s, BAL was modified into DMSA, a related dithiol with far fewer side effects. DMSA quickly replaced both BAL and EDTA, becoming the US standard of care for the treatment of lead, arsenic and mercury poisoning, which it remains today.


Research in the former Soviet Union led to the introduction of DMPS, another dithiol, as a mercury chelating agent. The Soviets also introduced ALA, which is transformed by the body into the dithiol dihydrolipoic acid, a mercury and arsenic chelating agent. DMPS has experimental status in the US FDA, while ALA is a common nutritional supplement.


Other chelating agents have been discovered. They all function by making several chemical bonds with metal ions, thus rendering them much less chemically reactive. The resulting complex is water soluble, allowing it to enter the bloodstream and be excreted harmlessly.
