Blocks Calcium Absorption, Repairs Damages Muscles, Improves Cell Energy Production
Calcium may pass through the damaged cell wall into the cells. If calcium gets deposited in the arterial walls, it inhibits the enzyme activity which, in turn, affects the production of energy, the movement of raw materials, finished products and waste products from the cell. The cells become energy starved and become acidic (lower intracellular pH) as a result. This can lead to premature aging, unbalanced calcium/magnesium ratios, increase free radical activity, local toxicity, oxygen deficit, nutritional imbalances, etc.
The cells that have become energy starved and acidic start to attract calcium ions, drawing them into the cells. This further blocks energy production. The result is degenerative cardiovascular conditions. When this happens, the muscles inside the artery walls go into spasm. Often this condition is treated with medications called “calcium channel blockers.” The problem is that calcium channel blockers block the calcium intake by the muscles; but is does nothing to cure the underlying problems of cell damage.
This process gets really out of hand in the presence of additional vitamin D and cholesterol. Free radicals help to convert the cholesterol into substances with vitamin D activity. This produces plaque, which in turn, attracts calcium cementing the material.
EDTA removes the toxic metal ions such as lead, calcium, mercury, copper, iron and aluminum from the blood stream. These are necessary for the production of free radicals. By removing the extra calcium from the blood stream, there is not more free calcium available to produce plaque. This allows the cells to start to repair themselves. Their production of energy increases. As more and more cells rebuild their production of energy increases. As more and more cells rebuilds, our body becomes healthier. The cells are more resistant to injury. The result is that we have started a salvage and regeneration activity that repairs previously damaged arterial walls and heart muscle. Overall, the entire body benefits as a result of chelation.
