CALCIUM IN CORONARY ARTERIES
WHAT DOES IT MEAN? HOW CAN IT BE REMOVED?


(Adapted from Majid Ali's forthcoming book The Pheasant, Oxygen, and Hypertension)

A turtle breathes and lives by what is beneath its shell. The action is not in the shell. The action in the human circulating blood is at the inner lining of vessel wall called endothelium ("endo" for short). Calcium deposits in a turtle's body belong to its shell. Calcium deposits in the human body belong to bones.

I offer the analogy of the tire of a bicycle I used to ride in middle school to elaborate the crucial point of the preceding paragraph. My cycle had an inner thin-walled rubber tube and a sturdy outer rubber tube. When the tire went flat, I removed the inner tube, pumped air into it, immerse it in a basin of water to detect the leak as the air bubbled out, and then applied a rubber patch to seal. I use this analogy to make an important point concerning vascular calcium deposits for people with hypertension, heart disease, and stroke: What is crucial is the functionality of the inner endo lining ("inner tubing") of the arteries and not calcium deposits in the outer muscle layer ("outer tubing") of the vessel. Endo is my abbreviation of endothelial cell that keeps the inner surface of vessels smooth, negatively-charged, and repellent to blood cells. So, it prevents the formation of microscopic clots on its surface.

As long as the endo lining of the vessel retains its smooth surface and a healthy charge, blood cells (platelets, red blood cells, and others) do not stick to the vessel. There is no danger of plaque buildup or the occurrence of heart attacks or strokes. It does not matter how much calcium is in the outer tube of the vessel. If the endo lining loses its smooth surface and a healthy charge, blood cells will stick to the vessel, beginning the process of plaque formation, heart attacks, and strokes—a process that clearly does not depend on the existence of calcium in the outer layers of the vessel wall. To underscore this point, below is a conversation I once had with a physician:

"Dr. Ali, I want to use scans for coronary calcium scores to entice people for my chelation practice. What do you think?" he asked.

"It's not a good idea," I replied.

"Not good. Why?" he asked, puzzled.

"If you do that, you will have to eat crow." I smiled.

"Eat crow?" he frowned. "Don't you give chelation at your center?" he asked with irritation.

"Yes, I do."

"Why do you do it?"

"Because it works. EDTA is extremely beneficial for patients with coronary disease, stroke, kidney failure and other disorders."

"Then why do you say I will to have to eat crow?"

"Because it will not do what you think it will."

"Are you saying EDTA chelation does not remove calcium?"

"No, I'm not saying that."

"Then why do you say I should not promote it?"

"I'm not saying you shouldn't promote it, only that you promote it with good arguments."

"Doesn't EDTA chelation remove calcium from coronary arteries?"

"Yes, it does."

"Now you confuse me."

"With chelation you will help most of your patients within weeks and months, but not by removing calcium from calcium plaques."

"But EDTA does remove calcium from coronary arteries, doesn't it? Then why will I have to eat crow?"

"Because if you pull patients in with the promise of reducing coronary calcium scores, they will want to know if your promise was true. The main benefit of EDTA chelation in the first year or two come from the restoration of inner endothelium, not from removing inactive calcium deposits in outer tissues of coronary arteries. Your patients will not wait for three or more years to repeat their coronary calcium scan and find out if you were right or wrong. That's when you will have to eat crow, or maybe even a flock of crows," I explained with a smile.

Calcium in coronary arteries is not the real issue. Calcium deposits do not cause plaque. Rather, calcium is deposited as a consequence of the factors that cause excess acidity, incremental free radical activity, persistent thickening of the circulating blood—all conditions created by lack of oxygen. Then follows damage to endo cells, stiffening of muscle cells in the vessels, and plaque formation.

So, the real issue is the health of the blood flowing through arteries, not the amount of calcium in the vascular walls. If the circulating blood is free of microclots and micro-plaques, the vessel wall is in cleansing mode and eventually most of the calcium in it will be reabsorbed. Calcium left behind in very small quantities will be of no consequence. On the other hand, if the circulating blood carries microclots and micro-plaques, the vessel wall is in clogging mode and additional calcium will continue to be deposited.

Dr. Ali's Guidelines for
Removal of Coronary Artery Calcium


Since calcium in coronary and other arteries is deposited due to local tissue problems—excess acidity, oxyradical activity, and thickening of fluids—calcium deposition can be removed by addressing these problems. Since the root of these problems is dysfunctional oxygen metabolism (the dysox state), any and all measures that normalize local tissue oxygen conditions will prevent further calcium deposits and facilitate slow and steady removal of the deposits.

Following are four top recommendations for my patients with calcium deposits in arteries:

Limbic Breathing and spiritual work

Peroxide soaks

Castor oil rub on abdomen and chest

Dr. Ali's breakfast (includes lecithin, flaxseed, and organic vegetable juice).

Following are other recommendations for my patients for calcium deposits in arteries:
"Dr. Ali's Insulin Diet Plan" (when insulin excess and toxicity exists),

Oral chelation with DMSA, lipoic acid, and 3C combination" (cilantro, chlorella, and chlorophyll),

Spices in rotation, such as turmeric, ginger, garlic, onions, cumin, coriander, celery, cayenne, and others,

Herbs in rotation, including hawthorne, passionflower, astragalus, coleus forskohlii, cat's claw, and others.

Intravenous EDTA infusions (includes supplementation with magnesium, potassium, and taurine).

Upon beginning this program, I advise my patients a "Begin-Low-Build-Slow Approach" in order to minimize any initial untoward effects.

Ethics-in-Medicine, Inc. was organized to advocate and promote access to compassionate, ethical, and effective health care, with an unrelenting focus on health preservation and disease reversal—preferring, when safely possible, nutritional and nondrug approaches. For those purposes, it is necessary to strongly oppose the pernicious influences of the Medical-Industrial Complex over all aspects of the art and science of healing practices.America's extreme health problems cannot be addressed without a radically new way of thinking about health and the absence of health. The three core problems of American medicine are: The 21st-century health problems caused by poisoned foods, polluted environment, and perverted life circumstances are addressed with 19th-century notions of disease and drugs;

Generations of physicians believe that all nondrug, nonscalpel therapies are unscientific; and
 
Ethics in medicine—truth and integrity in the work of practitioners—has been endemically and perniciously compromised by the "Medical-Industrial Complex (the "Complex"), which, in 2008, controlled the $2.4 trillion disease- maintenance system in the U.S. There is no end in sight for the deepening health care crisis with the prevailing medical model—Americans continue to become sicker as enormous sums are stolen from them by the Complex.
