Dr. Cranton's book was the first I had read about possibilities beyond what traditional medicine insists are the only alternatives: bypass, angioplasty, heart catheterization, etc. (Notice that all of these treatments hurt, are dangerous, and often don't work.) My husband had just had a mild heart attack; and we had the good fortune to be in touch with one of the contributors to Dr. Cranton's book, a cardiologist who took my husband as a patient. He describes traditional treatment as "The Widow Maker." We studied Cranton, began chelation, and are healthier, 6 years later, than we've been in 20 years. This is valid information about a non-invasive and non-painful process.

In today's medical marketplace, Dr. Cranton's book should berequired reading because each of will fall prey to the ravagesof longer lives - hopefully. I have spent most of my life engagedin biomedical research and have taught both medical and graduatestudents. With this history, I want to tell readers they haveevery reason to doubt most of what they hear from the medical community.Dr. Cranton provides a clearly developed case for EDTA chelationtherapy. I especially appreciate the inclusion of his own reviewarticle, complete with requisite scientific references (all 233).I am greatly frustrated by Dr. Cranton's attempt to satisfy, nowoutdated, scientific criteria for 'treatment efficacy' by meansof 'double-blind' control studies with EDTA. I am happy to tellhim that that method is considered unethical by the World HealthOrganization and directly opposes the approach of his American(AMA)'peers'. W.H.O. has adopted the Declaration of Helsinki which states that a treatment is effective if it does as well,or better than, currently practiced therapies. Of course, onehopes that the primary ethic, 'do no harm', always applies. According to these guidlines, EDTA therapy looks very effectiveand worthy of our consideration.Finally, I am ashamed to admit that while I lay in the hospitalafter my third MI, I allowed a small group of 'serious-faced'medics convince me that I would die without a 4-vessel bypass.I won't waste space here on the outcome because I have had manyof the problems documented in Dr. Cranton's book.Now that I am 4 years post-op, it is clear that, despite manylifestyle changes, I am going to need more serious efforts torecreate my health. So, within a week I will start a series ofEDTA chelation treatments - hopefully to gain some of the benefits outlined in Dr. Cranton's book. I'll be back witha report.

I have not had heart problems, thank God,though I know others that have and then did Chelation Therapy and can attest to the improvements they have experienced as a result. I read this book as a marketer of Oral Chelation products with EDTA. Dr. Cranton's description of treatments and the help that he documents patients receiving is truely astounding! I since have had others in the CardioCare industry admit to me that, as Dr. Cranton states, some 50% or more of Bypass surgery is unneccasary! It is Big business! EDTA has been used for 30+ years by the Navy to cleanse sailors of lead and Dr. cranton makes the point that it is also effective in chelating many other metals from our system. I continue to take Oral Chelation daily and at 53 continue to act like I'm 33. A wonderful and inspiring book to open ones eyes to the wonders of Alternative medicines ignored and discouraged by the established Medical/Pharmaceutical Industrial Complex.
A Paradigm Shift in Understanding Heart Disease
Published by Thriftbooks.com User , 24 years ago
How can this Book have not had more reviews? It changed my life and launched a career.Dr. Cranton answered the question which the doctor for my just-dead mother could not answer. I, a grieving son, asked, as you would, "Doctor, what causes heart disease?" He said "no one knows!"I had to accept that in the hospital waiting room, my mother's cold body pulling my attention away from the ignorance of modern medicine. But, I continued to look. I DID find books, many of them, by cardiologist, etc., where some doctor said "no one knows."Then, I found Dr. Cranton's Book. Actually this experience goes to his first edition. The book explained to me, a rational businessman, what was causing heart disease and how to prevent it.Within a few years I had learned tons more data about heart disease and launched an entire new career -- but Dr. Cranton's book was the beginning.

I READ THE BOOK BUT DELAYED STARTING THE THERAPY. AS A RESULT ,I WAS FORCED TO UNDERGO MULTIPLE BYPASS SURGERY AS MY MAIN ARTERY WAS 80% CLOGGED. THIS IS NOT A PLEASANT EXPERIENCE AND I AM SORRY I DID NOT START THE CHELATION MONTHS AGO .BE ASSURED I SHALL BEGIN THERAPY AS SOON AS I HAVE RECOVERED FROM THE SURGERY!
