Aging! Let’s Slow it Down!

Presented by Robert S. Waters, MD

The talk will review factors leading up to accelerated aging:

  • A high, refined carbohydrate diet.
  • Calcium intake and imbalance.
  • A progressive overload of iron as we age.
  • Magnesium deficiency.
  • An historically unprecedented burden of toxic metals in our environment and bodies. These include lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic, antimony, tin, nickel, aluminum and others.

What can we do about it? One answer is Chelation Therapy using Magnesium Disodium EDTA. We must lower the burden of toxic metals that have accumulated in the body over a lifetime. Remove the excess iron that likewise has contributed to free radical damage. Also, most importantly, remove calcium deposits from the soft tissues of the body.
