Detoxamin is the first over-the-counter product that allows anyone to experience the benefits of chelation in the privacy of their own home -- without the needles. Mericardium is a suppository that aids in removing toxic heavy metals, which correspond to accelerated aging, from the body.
Detoxamin is the first OTC (over-the-counter) product that allows anyone to enjoy the benefits of chelation therapy in the privacy of their own home -- without the needles. EDTA chelation has been shown to decrease the risk of heart attack by 86%, the risk of dying by cancer 90%.
The benefits of of intravenous EDTA chelation therapy have been well established. (Read Position Paper: American College for Advancement in Medicine). Even in the U.S., one of the most repressive nations in the world with respect to freedom of medical choice, the FDA has allowed EDTA chelation for the last 50 years - although its use has been restricted to the removal of toxic metals (i.e. lead, cadmium, uranium, etc.) Given the role of EDTA as a standard treatment for the removal of unwanted toxic metals from the body, any argument that "EDTA doesn't work" is reduced to hogwash. The expanded role of EDTA as a tool to remove arterial plaque, prevent bypass surgery, or perform functions that affect conventional medicine "in the breadbasket," is where controversy arises.
Potential Benefits of EDTA Chelation

Mercury is a heavy metal and potent neurotoxin. A primary source of exposure comes from your own dentist - producing mercury exposure both while making and inserting fillings, and even more so after removing them. Each silver (amalgam) filling releases up to 17 mcg. of mercury every day. This increases to 500 mcg. with the smoking of cigarettes, the drinking of hot liquids, gum chewing, acidic saliva, or the grinding of teeth at night. Mercury accumulates in the brain, heart, kidneys, and endocrine glands and can cause depression, auto-immune diseases, memory loss, tremors, anemia, and heart attacks.
Uranium is a radioactive element that disintegrates eventually into lead. There have been 2,000 nuclear detonations on our planet since Hiroshima, casting uranium into our atmosphere, not counting events like Three Mile Island and Chernobyl. More recently, environmental uranium has seen an upsurge with the military's expanded use of deleted uranium. Radioactive materials can cause cancer and birth defects.
Lead is a heavy metal found in cigarettes, cosmetics, plastics, batteries, gasoline, insecticides, pottery glaze, soldered pipes, and paint. Although one of the most common sources of exposure has been determined to be ordinary drinking water, little action has been taken to mitigate public exposure. The U.S. General Accounting Office recently admitted that about 50% of the U.S. population alone may be getting unsafe levels of lead exposure from this source. Other reports concur and have concluded that decaying plumbing is another major source of exposure (mostly from solder in modern plumbing; from the plumbing itself in lines installed before 1930). Lead accumulates in the brain, spleen, liver, kidneys, and bones. Like mercury, lead is well-established as a powerful neurotoxin and a leading cause of pediatric neurotoxicity. It has been strongly linked to child delinquency. For each 30 mcg of lead in a child's blood, his or her IQ drops 10 points.
Aluminum can be found in drinking water, antiperspirants, baking powders, feminine hygiene products, cow and soy milk, baby formula, antacids, and of course aluminum foil, pots and pans. It accumulates in the skin, bones, brain, and kidneys and has been linked to Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease.
Other less known or less prominent metals, which can also be removed through chelation therapy, and are worth noting, include:
Note: The primary purpose of this page has been to educate as to the prevalence of toxic metal exposure. It is not to infer that all toxic metals can be effectively removed from the body using EDTA, whether taken intravenously, orally, or rectally.

Linus Pauling, PhD is the only person ever to have received two full, unshared Nobel Prizes. He was one of the world's greatest biochemists and scientists. Before his death he wrote and researched extensively in the field of alternative and nutritional medicine.

EDTA is not normally present in the human body and is therefore, by definition, not an Orthomolecular substance. Chelation, however, is far safer and much less expensive than surgical treatments for atherosclerosis. Physicians who adhere to the protocol for safe and effective administration of EDTA, as approved and promulgated by the American College of Advancement in Medicine, integrate the results of my own research into their chelation program. That protocol is published in its entirety in this book. Improved nutrition and supplementation with vitamins and trace elements is an important part of the overall chelation program.
EDTA chelation therapy makes good sense
to me as a chemist and medical researcher. It has a rational scientific
basis, and the evidence for clinical benefit seems to be quite strong.
Metallic ions play an important role in the formation of atherosclerotic
plaque. EDTA removes those ions with relative safety and without
surgery. Published research and extensive clinical experience show that
EDTA helps to reduce and prevent atherosclerotic plaques, thus improving
blood flow to the heart and other organs. The scientific evidence
indicates that a course of EDTA chelation therapy might eliminate the
need for bypass surgery. Chelation has an equally valid rationale for
use as a preventive treatment.
A reference book such as this, which assembles a large body of scientific knowledge about EDTA chelation therapy into one volume, will be of great advantage to physicians who desire to learn more about this emerging nonsurgical treatment for atherosclerosis and related age-associated diseases.

For rectal use only. Use following an evacuation. Freeze before using. To remove suppository, separate the two plastic strips at the pointed end of the suppository wrapper and peel back. Remove wrapper before inserting into rectum. Insert past sphincter muscle. After insertion, remain sitting or lying down for 30 minutes. Best used before bed. Use every third day or as directed by your health care provider. Individuals with poor colonic mucosal integrity may experience stinging. If this occurs, notify your health care provider.
