My sister’s dermatologist found a melanoma on her leg. She had a full battery of tests to see if it had spread and we’re just waiting on the results. A good friend of mine had a melanoma on his ear. After getting most of his ear removed, the cancer reemerged and moved into the lining of his brain. I didn’t tell my sister about him, but it’s really freaking me out. He is in the hospital right now. The doctors didn’t think he would make it through the night two nights ago. But he did. He’s like Superman or something, he keeps rallying. It will truly be a shock if this cancer gets the best of him.

So I’ve been thinking about health. My dad has pretty serious high blood pressure. I have been reading about chelation, and wondering if it’s a plausible. I mean, I know chelation therapy is plausible for heavy metal poisoning, but I’ve been reading about it’s uses for removing plaque from arteries.

What I’m really wondering is if it’s like taking antioxidents. You know, it helps things, but it’s not really bad for you. Or like daily vitamins? Is oral chelation like that where it doesn’t hurt you to take it?

I need to do a little more research. But I would love if there was something like that for my dad.

  1. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this trying time. And to your friend and his family as well.

  2. Thanks, Betty!

  3. it sounds like a terrible time. i’d just weigh in on chelation.. i’m an environmental toxicologist who is very concerned about people using this unproven treatment willy nilly. chelating drugs are very powerful and and strip vital metals out of your body. the effect on your kidneys can be severe. please consult with a knowledgeable and objective practitioner NOT the person who will benefit from the treatment.
