With this chapter I will describe the first of three ways to treat ARMD that may be completely new to both you and your doctor. I recommend that my patients add one or more of these techniques to the rest of the steps I have described, in order to maximize their chances of reversing ARMD. You may wonder why I didnt just explain these in the beginning of the blog and forget all that information about diet, exercise, stress management, and supplements. First, you must recognize that these three therapies: Chelation, Microcurrent Stimulation, and Homeopathy require your own natural vital force in order to work well. These are not drugs that you can take or operations you can undergo where you have no active part in your healing. On the contrary, for these methods to work as well as they can, you must be in the best possible health. The second reason why the first part of this blog is so important is that your ARMD developed because you have some sort of systemic degeneration in progress, even if your ARMD is the only sign of it. Therefore, I have given you the tools to improve your underlying state of health. With optimal health, you can handle your ARMD much better on the emotional level and cope with vision changes and mobility issues much more successfully while you are waiting for improved vision. Finally, after the therapeutic segment of your healing program ends, you will need to be involved in a maintenance program to ensure that your new found visual gains are not lost due to poor lifestyle habits.

Francis Gmys is a hard working farmer in Home, Pennsylvania. Besides being a very likeable and friendly person, he is my uncle. In 1983, Sonny (that is what everyone calls him) developed chest pains that were so debilitating he could not walk to the barn without many stops. He took nitroglycerine tablets all day long. When he consulted a doctor, he learned that he had 70% blockage in a cardiac artery and would need bypass surgery in two years. Around this time he learned that several of his neighbors were undergoing chelation therapy for their heart conditions and other blood vessel problems. He joined the carpool of neighbors who went to Mount Pleasant for their weekly treatments. He says that far from unpleasant, he found the treatments very enjoyable. He saw people get stronger every week. There was always someone to talk to.
In all, Sonny had 46 chelation treatments. He had no more chest pain and was
feeling great. Because of this, he made a mistake he still regrets. He got busy back at the farm and did not take his monthly maintenance treatments as the doctor strongly recommended. Three years later the chest pain was back. He took 10 treatments but they did not bring him the relief he experienced earlier. So he had the surgery and, it did not help me at all. Now he is back to chelation and hopes to have the same outcome he first experienced. This time he will do the maintenance program!
The first technique I want to describe to you is called Chelation Therapy. Although you may never have heard of chelation, it has been employed by doctors in this country since about 1950, following its development in Germany in 1938. This is a treatment normally used to treat lead poisoning and even venomous snake bites in medicine. It was found, in the early years of its use, that chelation improved the heart disease of those who underwent it for other purposes. This prompted a number of physicians to begin using it for this purpose since it is known to flush plaque and toxic metals from bloodstream. For many, many individuals it has been an alternative to heart or vascular surgery.
In chelation therapy, about three grams of EDTA is used for each treatment. Although it has been approved to treat lead poisoning and some other conditions, it has not been approved for use in treating heart and vascular conditions. This does not mean that it is harmful or ineffective in these instances. Many drugs and devices are used in this way in the medical field. When doctors use chelation for purposes other than lead poisoning, they are using an approved substance, the synthetic amino acid EDTA (ethyl diamine tetra acetic acid) in a discretionary way. This is done frequently in medicine. One example familiar to us all is the use of aspirin, which is approved for the treatment of pain. Physicians routinely recommend it to thin the blood of persons with cardiovascular disease.
