## Di-Sodium EDTA Detox Treatment Program, from

The FDA classifies everything that is used for this program as food additives.

The effectiveness of the program is the result of the way in which the chemistry is mixed. (Please discuss this program with your doctor before using!)

Many pharmacies have the ability to make up this kit for you.Your doctor can call it in for you.

This preparation is optimized to remove plaque deposits from the body. The concentration of the solution and the time involved in letting it become “fully dissolved” is part of the engineering that moves EDTA away from its original function as a chelating agent to that of an anionic surfactant.An anionic surfactant needs to have a “full jacket” of water surrounding it in order to be effective – thus the long time intervals involved.

# This Detox Treatment Kit Contains:

– 1 package of Di-sodium EDTA (9.8 grams) with potassium hydroxide (6.2 grams) added to make it dissolve properly.This is to be added to two liters of pure water and allowed to dissolve for five days to a week at room temperature.This becomes your “EDTA Concentrate”,used to prepare the treatment solution described below.

– 1 package of Ascorbic Acid Power.This is used to make the EDTA treatment solution and the mineral water.½ teaspoon (0.875 grams) is added to two liters in each case.

– 1 package of Epsom Salt.This is also used to make both the EDTA treatment and the mineral water.½ teaspoon (1.25 grams) is added to two liters in each case.

– 1 package of Tri-lithium Citrate (3.6 grams).This is to be dissolved in 24 ounces of pure water for about 24 hours at room temperature.

– 1 package of “Zeta Aid” (5 grams).This is to be dissolved in 24 ounces of pure water for about 24 hours at room temperature.

The kit provides chemistry for 16 one-liter treatments. The normal protocol is a three-day cycle.

# You Will Need:

– A “Black Permanent Marker” to label your bottles.

– A plastic funnel.

– A set of measuring spoons (½ teaspoon and 1 teaspoon) – stainless steel or plastic is preferred.

– A small bottle of Maple Syrup.Keep this refrigerated.

– 2two-liter plastic bottles for the EDTA solutions.

– A two-liter plastic bottle or a gallon bottle for the mineral water.

– 2twenty-four ounce plastic bottles for the Tri-lithium Citrate and the Zeta Aid.

– Several gallons of pure water – Reverse Osmosis.

# Preparing the EDTA Treatment Solution:

1/ Fill a two-liter bottle about two thirds full of pure water (RO).

2/ Add ½ teaspoon of ascorbic acid powder, and ½ teaspoon of Epsom salt.

3/ Shake well and allow the mix to dissolve for 15 to 30 minutes.

4/ Shake solution again, and then add 8 ounces of the EDTA concentrate.

5/ Shake and then add pure water to make two liters.Shake again and let solution blend for at least 30 minutes.

# The Treatment Session:

Early in the day drink one-liter of the treatment solution within about an hour.It is alright to have a little black unsweetened coffee, or tea first and then wait about one-half hour.

During the next several hours you should drink an additional three liters of pure water (RO).

It is best not to eat anything for 8 to 12 hours.If you have a blood sugar problem or just feel too hungry, try eating a little watermelon, pineapple or similar fruit.

The pineapple enzyme Bromelaine greatly assists the EDTA in removing cardiovascular plaque deposits.The highest levels of Bromelaine are found in the middle third of the pineapple and even higher levels are found in the green pineapple.See Dr. McDaniel’s web page for more information …

Have a light meal late in the day.Try to listen to your body and see what it is craving – asking for.

The next day try to drink two to three liters of pure water.Follow your thirst.Eat good natural things.

On the third day, and other days that you are not doing the treatment, drink the mineral water.Two liters a day would be good.You get the most benefit if you drink the mineral water on an empty stomach.Wait at least twenty minutes before eating for maximum benefit, but it is most important to actually drink it, even if you have food in your stomach.

# An Alternate Protocol:

The above instructions for this detox program are geared for people who have critical issues; like being told by their doctor…

# “We need to amputate your leg because of poor circulation.”

# “We are going to have to do a heart valve replacement because of calcium buildup.”

# “You are going to need to undergo a heart bypass operation because your blood vessels are restricted.”

This program is also quite effective in removing kidney stones and can be adjusted to become even more so.

For these people it is critical to sequentially do the 3-day cycle 16 to 32 times in a row.That number of IV treatments usually will correct the problem and I am hoping that I can document that this oral version will accomplish the same.

If your health is basically stable and you are just interested in removing toxins and heavy metals from your body, doing the EDTA just once a week with the next day being a water day and then drinking a goodly amount of mineral water for the rest of the week should produce excellent results.

Since EDTA isn’t effective for removing mercury, the “Klinghardt Neurotoxin Elimination Protocol” can be combined with the EDTA program to increase the potential for removing neurotoxins.

The kitchen herb Cilantro is capable of mobilizing mercury, cadmium, lead and aluminum in both bones and the central nervous system. It is probably the only effective agent in mobilizing mercury stored in the intracellular space (attached to mitochondria, tubulin, liposomes etc) and in the nucleus of the cell (reversing DNA damage of mercury). Because cilantro mobilizes more toxins then it can carry out of the body, it may flood the connective tissue (where the nerves reside) with metals, that were previously stored in safer hiding places.

This process is called re-toxification. It can easily be avoided by simultaneously giving an intestinal toxin-absorbing agent. Our definite choice is the algal organism chlorella. A recent animal study demonstrated rapid removal of aluminum from the skeleton superior to any known other detox agent.

To remove heavy metals you should do the following in conjunction with the EDTA.The Cilantro will “loosen” the toxins so the EDTA can lock on to them and safely remove them from the body – with the exception of mercury.The Chlorella is there to capture the mercury when it is sent into the intestine with your bile.

I use a liquid extract of Cilantro produced by “Herb Pharm”.In the morning before I drink the EDTA, I put the Extract on my wrists.I then drink the EDTA and have lots of water during the day.Then ½ hour before I break my fast I take the Chlorella.Right before I eat, I put three drops of Cilantro Extract in a glass of water and drink that.Then I eat a healthy meal.

After a few weeks you can intensify the program as per instructions.

If you have a meal with fresh garlic the next day it will help remove mercury also.I make a batch of chili – about 12 quarts – with 10 to 12 bulbs of fresh garlic and a couple of pounds of onions and freeze meal size portions.This is a great meal to have the next day after you do the EDTA / Cilantro program.

Your body will probably tell you when you need to take a break from the EDTA program.It will probably occur somewhere between the 16th and 32nd treatment.You should take a break for about three months and then do another round of several more.Without doing lab tests it is very hard to say when you have had enough.Several treatments once or twice a year could be sufficient for maintenance.Again without lab tests … if you know a Kinesiologist s/he should be able to help guide you.

“High levels” of Vitamin C – about half the amount that a rabbit makes in its liver each day (equivalent body weight) – also will help remove toxins from the body.Citric acid also removes many toxic metals from the body.It takes time for your body to adjust to high levels of Vitamin C.You should slowly increase your dose about ½ gram a week until you are at the 7-8 gram level.

# Preparing the Mineral Water:

1/Fill a two-liter bottle about two thirds full of pure water (RO).

2/ Add ½ teaspoon of Ascorbic Acid Power – 0.875 grams.

3/ Add approximately 1-½ teaspoons of Maple Syrup – 6.0 grams.(Measuring spoons are a little different.I take a 1-teaspoon baking spoon and slowly pour cold Maple Syrup into it until it domes up and just begins to overflow.)Add about one cup of water to remove any Maple Syrup from the spoon and funnel.

4/Shake well and allow to dissolve for about an hour.This is a very important reaction.You are creating chelated colloidal minerals.The Ascorbic Acid is combining with the “free radicals” (Cations) in the Maple Syrup – “Tree Blood” – allowing them to be safely absorbed by the body.The final product should taste like quality spring water.If it tastes a little sweet, you have added a little too much Maple Syrup.If it has a slight acid taste, you have added too much Ascorbic Acid.

5/ After an hour, add ½ teaspoon Epsom Salt (1.25 grams)plus 1 ounce of the Tri-lithium Citrate solution and 1 ounce of the Zeta Aid solution.Shake well and then add water to make two-liters.Allow blending for about ½ hour.Shake well and then keep this in your refrigerator.This is a very good growth medium and things from the air that got into the bottle will rapidly grow at room temperatures.

6/ Be sure to wash the bottle out with hot water between uses to minimize contamination.Failure to do so may result in your water having a moldy taste.

( Zeta Aid can be obtained from Dr. T. C. McDaniel in Cincinnati OH.Fax: 1-513-761-4588 or call evenings 1-513-761-7883 )

# Reactions:

Some people have reported loose stools from the treatment.This is probably due to a cleansing action in the intestines.

Everyone has to urinate a lot, so choose a time for doing the treatment when this won’t be an inconvenience.(This is a detox program, you know)

If you have any kidney or liver issues, you should start with a smaller dose – 8 to 16 ounces of the treatment formula, along with three times (or more) of that amount of pure water.

A few older persons have reported a slight upset in their stomach.A teaspoon of baking soda in a glass of water will usually correct the problem.I have increased the pH of the treatment formula since I have received these reports to minimize any future problems along this line.

# Recommendations:

– This detox treatment is doctor approved for use with the “Dr. Rife’s Ray Devices” …

– And Lee Crock’s “Aura Therapy Machine”,used to remove toxins from the body …

– This detox solution is closely based on the IV treatments that Dr. T.C. McDaniel and others use so successfully for cardiovascular problems …

## What’s A Picolinate?, from

from Vitality Unlimited, Your Santa Fe Connection for Healthy Living, Our December 1989 Newsletter

In order for minerals in food to be utilized within the cells of the body, they must first be extracted from food, carried through the intestinal membranes, transported in the blood stream, and finally carried through the cell membrane to the interior cellular mechanisms. There are several barriers to this process. The most difficult being the intestinal wall. The cells that line the intestinal wall present a negative charge on the membrane surface. Minerals that have been dissolved in the digestive fluid which have lost their neutrality and have become positively charged will be attracted to the membrane and held tightly. In this instance, the minerals will not be allowed to pass through, and will remain held to the wall until another secretion cleanses them away.

A process called chelation accomplishes this feat for some of the minerals, while for others the electrical charge attraction is not as strong. Chelators are organic molecules that have their electrical charges arranged in such a way as to attract the positively charged mineral and temporarily tuck the mineral into a larger complex.

Thus, with the mineral ion’s positive charge shielded by the large chelator molecule, the complex appears to be neutral or negatively charged and will not be held by the membrane as it passes through.

Picolinic acid is the body’s prime natural chelator. There is an important reason for the body to construct this molecule: it is the most efficient chelator for minerals such as chromium, zinc, manganese, copper, iron, and perhaps molybdenum. A group of researchers led by Dr. Gary W. Evans at the USDA Human Nutrition Laboratory in Grand Forks, N.D., has been investigating Picolinic acid. Dr. Evans has found that Picolinic acid is produced from the amino acid tryptoph an in the liver and kidneys, and is transported to the pancreas. During digestion. Picolinic acid is secreted from the pancreas into the intestine. Dr. Evans has also determined that human milk contains fairly large amounts of Picolinic acid, whereas cow milk has little.

Dr. Evans’ group found that there is about 30 times as much Picolinic acid in mother’s milk as in cow’s milk, and about 300 times as much in mother’s milk as in the infant formulas that they analyzed. Even though there is twice as much zinc in cow’s milk than in mother’s milk, much more zinc is absorbed from mother’s milk.

Mineral uptake by tissues is far greater when the mineral is a Picolinate, rather than the other forms. Since our bodies utilize Picolinic acid to absorb and transport certain minerals, and our cells recognize mineral picolinates and readily use them, it makes sense to design mineral supplements based on this knowledge.

There is evidence that zinc may be a component of other hormones in addition to insulin, and that it is involved in cell membrane health. Surgeons have recognized the importance of zinc in wound healing – and studies show that zinc reduces infections as well. But research nutritionists have been perplexed by zinc’s behavior. Persons eating adequate amounts of zinc do not always absorb adequate amounts of zinc.

Dr. Evans’ group demonstrated that adding Picolinic acid to standard diets increased the amount of zinc actually absorbed. Dr. Evans found that adding five milligrams of zinc Picolinate to the diet alleviated acrodermatitis enteropathica symptoms, whereas 60 milligrams per day of zinc sulfate did not.

The research has also shown that the preferred way to increase zinc absorption is not to add picolinic acid to the diet, but to take zinc picolinate supplements.

A group at Bastyr College of Naturopathic Medicine in Seattle, WA, compared zinc picolinate, zinc citrate and zinc gluconate absorption in students, and published their findings. The study was a double-blind, placebo-controlled, cross-over clinical trial, and the results showed that red blood cell levels, blood serum levels, and hair levels of zinc all improved best with zinc picolinate (the next best was zinc gluconate).

Supplement users, in fact, note that since zinc picolinate is so well assimilated, the amount needed may be only one-third as much as normally taken for supplemental purposes.
