Heart and Blood Vessel Disorders

We utilize intravenous EDTA Chelation Therapy for cardiovascular disease.  Dr. Michael B. Schachter, MD, CNS, FACAM, has been doing this procedure for more than 25 years, and has lectured and written articles about it for physicians and the public during this time. 

The approach of our Center is to assess as many risk factors as possible with testing, including lipid levels (cholesterol, HDL and triglycerides, etc.), lipoprotein (a), serum homocysteine, fibrinogen, high sensitive C-reactive protein, various vitamin and minerals levels, and toxic metal load.  

As much as possible, we try to use non-invasive diagnostic testing either at the Center or with referrals outside the Center.  We are aware of the dangers of invasive cardiovascular testing and try to avoid it, as much as possible.  To check on arterial blockages of the legs, we use a non-invasive approach, which measures blood pressures at various levels of the legs and Doppler studies.  We also use a non-invasive approach to check for carotid (neck) artery blockage to help to screen people who have an increased risk for developing a stroke.

Our treatment approach for cardiovascular disease involves an individual dietary approach, which may utilize a personís blood type or metabolic type.  However, for all cardiac patients we recommend avoiding highly processed foods, high in sugar or white starch, as well as artificially hydrogenated fats.  

We usually recommend a variety of nutritional supplements, which relate to the personís risk factors.  Among the supplements most commonly recommended are:  a multi-vitamin and mineral; vitamins A, B3, B6, B12, C, E, and folic acid; the minerals magnesium, zinc, copper, and selenium; the amino acids L-Lysine, L-Proline, L-Carnitine, and taurine; the herbs ginkgo biloba and hawthorne berry; and many others.  

Exercise (including aerobics, weight training, and stretching) are strongly recommended.

We also recommend mind-body programs to help cardiovascular patients learn to handle stress more effectively.
