Overview

Chelation (pronounced key-lay-shun) therapy is a safe, effective non-surgical treatment that has successfully been used to prevent and treat hardening of the arteries for over forty years in the United States. New evidence indicates that it may also help to control and, in some cases, reverse the effects of arthritis, cancer, stroke, osteoporosis, glaucoma, metal toxicity, irregular heart beat, senility, and gangrene, as well as a host of other degenerative illnesses. As more studies show the many benefits of chelation therapy, the number of physicians utilizing it continues to grow. In this important new book, Dr. Morton Walker explains how chelation works, documents the evidence of its effects, and discusses its oral and intravenous use. Since intravenous treatment is not always necessary, Dr. Walker also tells the reader about over-the-counter oral chelating agents -- what they are, where to find them, and what dosage to take.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Walker's book provides a complete explanation of chelation therapy. The only use for this therapy which is generally accepted is to remove lead from the bloodstream in cases of lead toxicity, although new evidence suggests it may help to control and in some cases reverse the effects of arthritis, cancer, stroke, and more. Using lay language, Walker explains the various chelating agents and how they work, and presents case studies of patients who have been helped by the therapy. An appendix lists chelating physicians worldwide. This is an interesting treatment of the subject, much more comprehensive than any other book. Recommended for public libraries only where books on alternative medical therapies are popular.--Barbara Kormelink, Bay Medical Ctr . Lib., Bay City, Mich.
