EDTA was first used on humans to treat workers in battery factories and sailors who used lead based paint to help treat lead poisoning. While using EDTA for this the researchers also discovered that the EDTA was helpful with treating hypercalcemia and improving circulatory function. To this day EDTA Chelation is the recommended treatment for Lead Poisoning by the FDA. The form of EDTA they were using was Di-Sodium EDTA which while being effective at removing a wide range of toxic heavy metals including Mercury, Lead, Aluminum and Cadmium as well as excess Calcium is also causes irritation and must be given slowly through an I.V. over 3-4 hours.
In the 1980’s Dr. Bruce Halstead conducted clinical trials using rectal EDTA Chelation on children as young as 6 to help with lead poisoning in Third World countries. After that a Dr. Rob Bennett tried to bring an EDTA suppository to market but he was unable to find a formulation that would work without irritation or serious side effects. World Health Products bought the rights to the EDTA suppository and promptly brought a Disodium EDTA suppository to market but it caused extensive irritation and even rectal bleeding. Ron Partain, RPh was brought in to come up with a viable form of EDTA and through trial and error settled on Calcium Disodium EDTA. Calcium Disodium EDTA is the most effective form of EDTA at removing the widest range of toxic heavy metals and without any irritation of health issues. But there is another EDTA Chelation suppository on market with a different EDTA formulation, Medicardium.
Medicardium was developed by Spencer Feldman after World Health Products refused to accept as a return their dangerous Disodium EDTA suppositories. Medicardium is made with Magnesium Dipotassium EDTA. Magnesium EDTA is a very viable form of EDTA with a strong affinity to Calcium but it has a far weaker attraction to other toxic metals including Mercury, Lead, Aluminum and Cadmium. Calcium is an essential mineral that helps with bone health and staving off osteoporosis, supports nerve transmission and muscle function and can help maintain a healthy heart rhythm. But you need to be very careful that you do not remove to much Calcium to quickly or it can cause serious health issues, this is why Medicardium is made with a relatively low amount of Magnesium EDTA. Since Medicardium has a lower affinity for toxic heavy metals it is not nearly as good of an overall chelator as KelaminHM.
After I helped to build up sales of the first Calcium EDTA suppository Detoxamin, I left and brought to market Kelatox EDTA suppositories. Due to ethical and business issues I left Kelatox several years ago and have now come out with KelaminHM Calcium EDTA suppositories. I use Calcium in the EDTA as it acts as a very effective buffer which prevents any irritation from occurring during the insertion. Calcium is also PH neutral which directly helps in its affinity to toxic heavy metals making it a far more effective chelator than Magnesium EDTA. Since KelaminHM(like Detoxamin and Kelatox before it) is bound to Calcium it does not directly remove free floating Calcium so we can use a higher dosage in each suppository which makes them even more effective. The more toxic metals you can remove the more effective your chelation therapy will be and the healthier you will be.
While Medicardium is a good product for removing excess Calcium KelaminHM is a far better product to use for general Chelation and to remove the widest range of toxic metals more safely from your body and improve your health!
