Stroke - Cereberovascular Insufficiency

Cereberovascular (cerebro means brain) insufficiency is a blockage in the carotid arteries in the neck and can lead to TIAs (Transient Ischemic Attacks also known as mini-strokes) or CVAs (Cereberovascular Accidents also known as full blown strokes) which can result in numbness and loss of function in a limb or limbs, blindness, Aphonia (inability to speak), coma and even death.

Our alternative approach uses two principal modalities namely EDTA Chelation and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT). The pressure of HBOT forces oxygen into the liquid portion of the blood called the plasma and allows as much oxygen to be dissolved in the liquid portion of the blood as is carried by the red blood cell (normally only 2% of the oxygen is transported in the liquid portion and 98% on the red blood cell). Hence the plasma can get around the clot carrying oxygen to the oxygen starved brain cells saving it until the body an/or chelation helps improve the circulation. This is equivalent to a heavy person trying to get through fat mans squeeze in a cave. He (like the red cell) may not make it but he can throw endless buckets of water (equivalent to the plasma) through the hole.

We have demonstrated that EDTA chelation therapy is beneficial for improving circulation. Our first paper dealt with an early technique, oculocerbrovasculometry (paper #5), Since then, we have used modern techniques such as Doppler to demonstrate improvement. Our first paper using Carotid Doppler was on a single patient that had a carotid artery that was approximately 98% blocked and after 30 treatments, the blockage was reduced to 35% (Paper #23). Those results were so dramatic that we did a study on a much larger group and found that after 30 Chelation Therapy Treatments, there was an average improvement (reduction in blockage) of 22% (Paper #27), This combined therapy certainly seems to offer some hope to an otherwise hopeless situation.
