Oral Chelation and Cardiovascular Disease

What Is Cardiovascular Disease?

Cardiovascular Disease, or CVD for short, includes Coronary Heart Disease or diseases of the arteries (Arteriosclerosis, including hardening of the arteries, or Atherosclerosis), Heart Attack (Myocardial Infarction), Arrhythmias, Congestive Heart Disease, Stroke, High Blood Pressure (Hypertension), Rheumatic Heart Disease and other dysfunctions of the cardiovascular system.



Should Keeping My Cardiovascular System Healthy Be A Priority For Me?

Yes, it should! Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the United States and Europe. According to U.S. 1992 mortality statistics, about 1 million people per year die of CVD in the U.S.A. - that’s approximately ½ of all deaths registered every year, an average of one death every 33 seconds -- and it’s rising, as confirmed by statistics drawn from the U.S. National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), the American Heart Association (AHA), and the 1996 Johns Hopkins Medical White Paper Reports. It’s plain to see that Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) is a problem of epidemic proportion which most people would rather not talk about.

Don’t Men Experience Cardiovascular Diseases More Often Than Women?

No, they don’t! Interestingly, more women die of CVD than do men (51.9% compared to 48.1%); Menopause itself appears to increase the risk of coronary heart disease, as do the factors of smoking and oral contraception. Alarmingly, more than one in four persons in the U.S. have one or more types of cardiovascular disease. CVD also makes up approximately 20% of all disabilities.

But Aren’t There Safe Medical Procedures That Accurately Diagnose And Treat Cardiovascular Disease?

Well, yes and no! Most procedures are costly, and their results are often painful, debilitating and of questionable long term worth. Coronary Bypass Surgery and Prescriptive Drug Therapy often have unwanted side-effects. And alarmingly, a recent landmark 5-year, $3 million Rand Corporation study indicated that bypass surgery, angiography (a pre-surgical x-ray technique to detect blocked arteries) and carotid endarterictomies (the removal of blockage from one or both arteries carrying blood to the brain) were significantly overused procedures, and that the latter surgery was done for inappropriate or questionable reasons 65% of the time. Further, arterial blockage diagnostic exams are apt to be inaccurate, especially when studies show that experts only agreed 60% of the time with their interpretation of angiograms, and for those first agreeing, only 50% of them subsequently agreed with their own diagnosis when asked to “blindly” re-examine. Such suggests an overall 30% accuracy rate, meaning that 70% of the time, medical experts are likely wrong about your needs for bypass surgery.



But Don’t A Lot Of People Have Bypass Surgery Because of Cardiovascular Disease Anyway?

Yes, they do! An estimated 485,000 coronary artery bypass surgeries were performed in 1993. Of these, 73% were performed on men, and 47% were performed on people under the age of 65. The total cost of all cardiovascular disease in 1996 is estimated by the American Heart Association to be $151.3 billion. Today, bypass surgery is an estimated $25+ billion a year industry, with the average cost of a surgery running around $44,000.00 (1992 statistic)... very profitable!

Why Is Cleansing My Cardiovascular System All That Necessary For Me?

Your cardiovascular system consists of 60,000 miles of arteries, veins and capillaries. It’s designed to carry nutrients and oxygen to every living cell in your body while removing toxins and wastes.

Why Is Cleansing The "Blood-Filtering- Organs" Considered Important?

The Liver and Kidneys as well as the Gallbladder and Lymphatic System are major “filters” of the blood system, removing toxic wastes and debris. The kidneys especially aid in ridding the body of excess “acids” while rebalancing critical pH. If these “filters” are damaged or continuously unclean, your blood will remain laden with debris and heavy metals.

Can I Take Care Of Cleansing My Entire Cardiovascular System Myself?

Yes, you can!


Aid and support the body in naturally and safely cleansing and detoxifying not only your Cardiovascular System, but your Liver, Gallbladder, Lymphatic System and Kidneys as well.

TriCardia+, Växa’s oral chelation therapy formula, is a homeopathic medicinal designed to detoxify the cardiovascular system, liver and kidneys. Oral Chelation is a safe and effective way to cleanse and detoxify your entire cardiovascular system of toxic metals and wastes. The ingredients in this homeopathic oral chelation formula support the body's ability to:

  • Help chelate and remove most heavy metals. Help cleanse the cardiovascular system.
  • Help cleanse and detoxify the kidneys, gallbladder and lymphatic system

Detoxifying the body means cleaning the entire cardiovascular system: the circulatory system of blood vessels, veins and arteries; the liver, kidneys and gallbladder; and the lymphatic system.

Ingredients          Suggested Dosage

pre-diabetic or diabetic

kefir - Caspian Sea Yogurt - Viili

These milk cultures are easily made at home, require no cooking, very little preparation, and children of all ages love it. And there're healthy! They are full of active (not dead) probiotics, enzymes, nutrients and Casein. A French study originating from the Sainte-Marguerite Hospital in Marseille, found a diet rich in Casein appears to actually protect subjects (non-obese mice who have a genetic predisposition for developing diabetes: NOD mice) from developing diabetes and then passing it on to their young. Specifically, Casein fed NOD female mice were protected against spontaneous diabetes and male NOD mice against acute Cyclosphosphamide or Cy-induced diabetes while also lessening the severity of insulitis. Moreover, Casein has been found to exhibit the highest ratio of Total Essential Amino Acids to total Nitrogen of all foods and proteins reported by the FAO/WHO Expert Group.

The specific Amino Acid configuration of Casein just mentioned appears to effectively compete against the inflammatory cytokines response produced by the lymphocytes of the Immune System mentioned earlier, and may even reduce or circumvent the possibility of such an aberrant response, protecting beta cell integrity within the pancreas and the subsequent production of Insulin from amino acids derived from its structure. No other changes in the Immune System could account for these results. Such may also allow or ensure ߭cell "rest," a treatment strategy now of medical preference.

Interestingly, egg-based (albumin) proteins and other hydrolyzed proteins did not demonstrate this "protective" effect; Subjects fed albumin based proteins developed insulitis in 10 weeks. This is yet another strong reason for those who have a family history of diabetes, especially pregnant or lactating women and children, to supplement with Vaxa's TriCardia+. Because of the autoimmune nature of diabetes, supplementation with our pre-probiotics (kombucha tea, ginger beer, water kefir and tibicos) offer appropriate dispersal of toxins while supporting and boosting the immune system.
