Take Heart! (Heart Disease and Chelation Therapy)

  • Heart disease is not just a “man’s” illness, though billions of promotional dollars have been spent making it seem this is the case.
  • Heart disease is a silent killer - 64% of women who die from heart disease experience no prior symptoms.
  • Sudden death is more common among women than men with heart attack.

A Man’s World

Do you think of heart disease as a woman’s illness? Chances are the answer is “No!”

It’s promoted heavily as a “man’s disease” and for years the majority of the research has been done on men. Yet statistics show it is clearly a sudden, silent killer of women and is the number one cause of death among American women.

Many women are running at full speed throughout their days, balancing a full-time job with raising children, running a home and making ends meet, financially. Often warning signs of heart disease are ignored, until “bad indigestion” is eventually diagnosed as cardiovascular disease.

Yearly, women are reminded to do their home checks for breast cancer, but how often are they advised to get their heart checked during their annual physical?

Broken Heart

Many ask, "What is a heart attack?" Simply, a heart attack is damage to the heart muscle due to loss of blood supply, usually caused by a complete blockage of an artery that supplies blood to the heart muscle.

Several risk factors have been isolated and they are:

  • Tobacco smoke
  • High blood cholesterol
  • High blood pressure
  • Physical inactivity
  • Obesity or overweight
  • Diabetes
  • Use of estrogens
  • Excessive alcohol use

Some of the isolated risk factors we have no control over:

  • Increasing age
  • Sex (gender)
  • Family history
  • Previous heart attack or stroke or TIA (transient ischemic attack)

Brave Heart

Looking on the preventative side, what can women of Tampa Bay do to maintain a healthy heart for yourself and your loved ones?

You probably already know what steps you can take like stop smoking, eat a healthy diet with lots of fresh organic fruit and vegetables, get plenty of regular exercise, keep your weight under control along with your blood pressure and blood cholesterol.

Bypass heart surgery is one treatment for heart disease, but at times, it can be ineffective, and costly, not to mention risky. During bypass surgery, about 5 percent of patients have cardiac arrests or strokes and about 1-2 percent actually die.

Ace of Hearts

An alternative step you can take to improve circulation and blood flow is chelation therapy, as offered to the residents of Tampa Bay by LifeWorks Wellness Center.

Chelation therapy is a non-surgical infusion therapy that has been used for improving circulation and reducing arteriosclerosis in patients with heart disease. Chelation is an intravenous therapy with an amino acid called EDTA (Ethylene-diamine-tetra-acetic acid). EDTA is the most powerful antioxidant known. It decreases blood clotting and removes lead, mercury, and other toxic metals from the body. In the process of doing this, circulation is improved and oxygen levels in the tissues increases. This can lead to improvements in blood pressure, circulation, wound healing, and exercise tolerance.

At LifeWorks Wellness Center, patients have a full medical evaluation and screening blood tests before receiving chelation therapy. The process involves getting the EDTA by intravenous infusion along with vitamin C, B complex, magnesium and specific homeopathics to improve health. Until recently, chelation required a three-hour infusion, but now 30-minute chelation therapy is available to residents of Tampa Bay, allowing busy patients to easily fit chelation treatments into their schedules.

Tampa Bay patients seeking to improve circulation and prevent the need for surgery may benefit from an evaluation and course of chelation therapy.

Chelation therapy has helped many people, and it may help you. Call 727-466-6789 for more information or an appointment, or visit www.lifeworkswellnesscenter.com.

Dr. David Minkoff is co-founder of LifeWorks Wellness Center, one of the foremost alternative health clinics in the US.

Dr. David Minkoff, M.D.
Founder and Medical Director
In 1995, Dr. Minkoff's wife became ill and her physicians couldn't find what was wrong. Not accepting their "no hope" conclusion, Dr. Minkoff went on a search to help her which led him out of emergency medicine into complementary and alternative medicine to find the answers. In the process he gained expertise in Biological medicine, heavy metal detoxification, anti-aging medicine, hormone replacement therapy, functional medicine, energy medicine, neural and prolotherapy, homeopathy and optimum nutrition. He studied under the masters in each of these disciplines until he became an expert in his own right. The answers he found were soon in demand when others learned of his wife’s return to good health. In response to this, he and his wife, Sue Minkoff RN established Lifeworks Wellness Center in 1997 and it quickly became one of the most comprehensive complementary and alternative medicine clinics in the U.S.
