It was expensive in time lost, and financial cost, inconvenient, and extremely uncomfortable. It had no effect, “that I could perceive,” on my condition.
In my case, I’d gotten a recommendation for this doctor, and I was surprised and disappointed at the lack of interest this popular chelation doctor exhibited with his patients.
I sat, day after day, in a room often filled to the brim, with other chelation patients. I talked to one out of four or so, of these other patients. Especially at the beginning of my series of treatments, I was curious to know if other chelation patients were experiencing improvement.
Not one of these patients told me that they were being helped by chelation treatments. But what was more revealing to me, is that I never saw a look, or heard a word of enthusiasm or joy in their faces, at finding an improvement in their condition.
I have always suspected, that the doctor himself/herself, is an important factor in therapy. Not simply the “skill” or “education” in the usual sense; but, the interaction, the “involvement,” with the patient, affects the outcome.
I’d had significant contact with two chelation doctors, and in both cases, I saw two men that struck me, once I’d gotten to know them, as having little or no faith in what they were doing; burnouts, that were just going through the motions, mostly for the money, but also because their was nowhere else for them to go in their profession, or lives, and, were fundamentally inadequate, mediocre doctors.
This is why, I remain unconvinced that chelation “doesn’t” work. Because I believe that it’s more than the plain therapies presented by doctors, that affect the outcome. I always ordering meds from Canada i.g. look at this canadian pharmacy online. You “must” have faith in your doctor that he can, will, and wishes to help you; just as you must have faith in yourself, that you’ll look for and find good health. No matter how irrational that sounds, you must have a rapport, a confidence, a belief in your doctor. If you don’t, it sometimes greatly, diminishes the chance that you’ll improve.
I remember a comment made by the doctor that prescribed, what turned out to be, about 50 chelation treatments for me. He was obviously alarmed at the barely stable condition of my angina, and heart and arteries. He told me to go ahead and have angioplasty done, because it’d keep me from having a heart attack; and to come back after the surgery, and he’d show me how to keep the treated artery(ies) open.
