Which of the following is an antioxidant?
Vitamin E
Vitamin B

 Chelation Therapy: Oral Chelation  

20­30 milligrams zinc (picolinate or orotate)

Blend these ingredients together in a food processor and keep refrigerated until use.

The amounts given are for daily consumption (around 30 grams in total) and it is probably wise to make up enough for a few weeks at a time and to keep this well covered and chilled until it is consumed, as breakfast or with any meal.

Research at the University of Alabama by Drs C Butterworth and C Krumdieck (published in 1974 in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition) has shown that the combination of linoleic acid and lecithin, as well as the other nutrients such as vitamin C, act to form an enzyme Lecithin­Cholesterol­Acyl­Transferase (LCAT), which chelates cholesterol deposits from arterial walls at normal body temperatures. These foods are suggested by Dr Rinse as a means of ensuring that the raw materials for formation of LCAT are readily available.

Oral chelation: Formula 2

Dr Kurt Donsbach, the dynamic and controversial author of dozens of health booklets and pamphlets, and director of an 'holistic' medical clinic in California, has provided a chelation formula for oral use (Chelation pamphlet 1985, published by the author). He states:

    Oral chelation is probably a misnomer, since the formulation does not attach itself to, or eliminate via the urine, the calcium in the bloodstream as does the EDTA form of intravenous chelation. The term is used because the end result is the same, with considerably less discomfort and cost (approximately 1500 percent less).

    The two chelation approaches, intravenous infusion of EDTA and the oral nutrient approach, both are lifesavers to countless individuals. Many physicians are now opting for a combination of the two methods since they work in different fashions and by doing so find that the intravenous infusions can be cut down from a series of 30 to only 10 treatments. Furthermore, by using a maintenance dose of the oral, the patient is protected for the future so that he does not need to be rechelated with EDTA.

John Stirling, an Australian research scientist working in the UK compares oral and intravenous chelation (although he is discussing oral use of EDTA, not oral nutritional chelation) with intravenous EDTA (Stirling, 1989):

    I would opt for intravenous over oral EDTA in extreme life threatening situations. Intravenous is more direct obviously, and results can be noticed sooner, and the cost variance is considerable.

So what does Dr Donsbach suggest as oral chelation? A great deal, as the following shows:

    Vitamin A (fish liver oil and beta carotene) 25,000IU

    Vitamin D (fish liver oil) 400IU

    Vitamin E 600IU

    Vitamin C 3000mg
