SINCE BEGINNING TO USE LIFE GLOW PLUS, I HAVE SEEN SOME POSITIVE CHANGES IN MY CIRCULATION PROBLEM. AT A RECENT VISIT TO MY FAMILY DOCTOR, HE TOLD ME THAT FOR MY MEDICAL PROBLEMS I WAS ON THE RIGHT PROGRAMS AND THAT I SHOULD NOT HAVE 4 BYPASS SURGERY WHICH THE DOCTOR THAT DID MY HEART CATH RECOMMENDED BECAUSE OF BLOCKAGES IN SEVERAL AREAS OF MY BODY. i HAVE BEEN ABLE TO WALK A MILE SEVERAL TIMES A WEEK WITHOUT GETTING EXCESSIVELY TIRED.
I AM INTERESTED IN THE RAW DIET AS I AM BORDERLINE DIABETIC.

Subject: My AGE
I am 82. My wife (85) died following a 3 year battle with Lymphoma in May of this year so I am now alone. While she was so sick from the strong chemo in late 1999, I had a heart cath which showed the blockages mentioned in my previous message. At that time I did not feel comfortable with the idea of being "laid up" with the 4 bypass surgery when Dorothy needed all the support I could give her so I put off the surgery. My son had found your web site on chelation at my request and that is how I was able to order Life Glow Plus as you sent me a lot of information by mail, including a tape about homogenized milk, butter eggs and chelation. That was an eye opener!
I have been using skimmed homogenized milk rather than milk with 1, 2 or 4% fat as I assumed that the fat had to be removed before the homogenization process is done. I may be wrong in this thinking, correct me if I'm assuming too much! I like milk!
Today I went through a Lower Gastro Intestinal test procedure as 2 of 3 stool samples tested positive for blood. I won't have the results for a
few days. The Upper GI test is to be done next week. I'm praying that there is nothing extremely wrong!
Thanks again for all your efforts to keep us informed on health issues!

I tried another oral chelation product from a different source for 2 months and have decided that it doesn't seem to be doing anything for me as my extremities have been getting numb. I have gone back to Life Glow Plus and have been on it now for about a week.
A week ago while I was playing the violin for a sing-a-long at a rest home here in Ocala Florida that the fingers holding the violin bow were getting numb. Today while again playing for the sing-a-long there was no numbness in the fingers of my right hand. It seems as though I will be using your product and no other from now on. This after a week back on Life Glow Plus. I also play the violin at church services. Dorothy, my wife, played the piano with me when she was living.
When I get some new pictures, I will consider sending them to you via e-mail.
I have been making clothing racks for a mission where clothing, shoes and small appliances (that have been donated) are given to people who need such help and for FREE! I have been donating my time to the mission. This is one of the ways that God has given me peace and stability after the loss of my wife of 58 years. People all over the world have upheld me in prayer during and after the that event which so abruptly changed my every day life. Keeping busy has been wonderful therapy for me. Prayer changes things!
My son Robert Hewitt, Jr. said that he thought that I should go ahead and let you use my letters on your web site. God has been so good to me! HE is a Friend to the end!
Perhaps there is some special events that you would like me to send which I haven't thought of yet. Let me know what you think!

You have already provided a wonderful story -- and many people will than you for sharing it with them.
What could make it even better would be more details about how you were told by the doctor that you needed bypass surgery.
That can be a very frightening time for anyone -- the doctor is very "high" on his mountain, and looks down on you -- and "pronounces" your doom! I may exaggerate what happened for you, but this is what happens for many.
Can you tell me about what led up to seeing that doctor, and the details of your visit, and what he said?
That would be great!

The sequence of events leading up to the statement, "You need to have 4 bypass surgery", is as follows:-
My family physician did an EKG which showed what he considered to be excessive abnormalities such as Premature Ventricular Contractions (PVC's). So I flunked that test. He sent me for a treadmill and chemical stress test which I also flunked. Then I was sent to a cardiologist for a heart catheter [angioplasty -- dangerous -- click here to read Karl's comments on angioplasty] which showed several blockages throughout my body, 4 of which were on the heart. Blockages were in the range of 30% to 85%, the highest was on the heart. The doctor told me that I needed 4 bypass surgery before he released me from the overnight hospital stay. Blood tests at this time showed elevated levels of platelets (1.1 million/uL).
Normal range is about .2 to .4 million /uL. My heamotologist put me on 11 - 500 mg Hydroxyurea capsules a week to bring the count into the middle of the normal range.
The day my wife and I talked with the cardiologist in his office at the hospital, she was in the hospital for a cat scan of her head and abdomen as she was having problems with lymphoma that had spread and was causing her a lot of pain. As we talked, he asked if I had any chest pain and I told him that I had never had any pain in the chest. I told him that I was considering oral chelation and he said that it probably wouldn't help but it wouldn't hurt me. It was then that he told me that I could probably put off the surgery for a while but that I eventually would be back to see him for the surgery.
That is when I found your web site with my son's help and ordered Life Glow Plus so that I could start taking my life back. It has been nearly a year since the day I got started on the oral chelation. Results have been slow in appearing but I feel reasonably well and have been busy doing odd jobs like making small pieces of furniture, building clothing racks, repairing broken articles, and keeping my church equipment maintained and mowed their 6 acres of lawn during the summer. Also I have been able to walk a mile several times a week without having to stop to rest.
For an 82 year old I sometimes think that I'm much younger!
My family doctor at one time was doing infusing chelation with some of his patients. At my last visit, his nurse told me that bit of information. She also said that she had seen some good results with that treatment.
I hope this is what you wanted me to send to you. If you want more details, let me know. I do think that a strict vegetarian diet would help speed up the process of ridding my arteries of plaque and help my circulation problems and overall health.

This is wonderfully detailed. I particularly appreciate the exactness of the medical information.
Some patients get only the vague information, "You are going to die if you don't get bypass!"
Others will get exact numbers, along with an explanation.
Either way, the fright can be overwhelming -- people always know they are mortal -- that they will die some day, but it is never something you easily accept. So, when you are feeling pretty good, and some doctor (who is invariably younger than you) looks you in the eye, and says, "You are going to die! Or, you need bypass!" You can legitimately be frightened.
It takes real courage to withstand that pressure. I actually had customers tell me, when they refused bypass, that the surgeon had called their wife to ask, "Does your husband have a will?" And, it is established that in one hospital, a team of people would use scare tactics on both the patient and the spouse -- including a Priest who would call to ask about giving "last rites" and if the spouse had that arranged in case of need! The pressure to finance the enormously expensive bypass surgery facilities in a hospital are tremendous.
My readers of your story will appreciate the exactness of your descriptions.
Robert, it doesn't trouble me at all if you want to describe whatever it was that got you to try a "different oral chelation formula." I know that my stuff is not cheap, and I have more than 50 pages of information on "other" oral chelation formulas -- most of which I've analyzed and found to be close to worthless -- with full explanations as to why. (Click here to go to a summary page on other oral chelation products.)
But, it would not be unusual for someone to read my stuff, feel convinced that oral chelation is the way to go, feel upset about the cost, find another product and try it. It wouldn't be unusual, even, for someone to be unaware that he wasn't getting any help from the cheaper formula.
So, what would really round out your story would be to frankly address this issue. You tried some other formula for two months. Just as interesting information, which one was that? And, why did you choose that? Cost? And, what convinced you that it wasn't working for you?
(You mentioned that there was numbness that was not going away -- anything else?)
I am also fascinated by the fact that your family doctor was doing IV chelation? But, you didn't choose to get any? Or, he didn't offer? I do know of some "closet chelation doctors" who believe in it but don't want to be attacked and therefore don't publicize what they do in secret.
One of the interesting moral questions for doctors in general, and some of the doctors you have been in contact with, particularly, is what do they do when they see something "working" which they have believed to be worthless.
It is very common for medical doctors to believe that oral chelation is worthless. Actually, only a few of them would say to you, "Well, it can't hurt you!" Most, in my experience, would get angry about it. I've had people tell me that their doctor told THEM that if they used chelation (either oral or intravenous) that the doctor would refuse to treat them again!
So, you had some relatively unusual doctors.
Robert, since you are being so amazingly willing to be so explicit and forthcoming, let me ask you another question my readers will be interested in!!
I've often suggested that doctors will recommend bypass surgery much more vigorously when they know that the patient's insurance will cover it -- it is simply a money thing!
Did you have insurance that would cover the bypass? I understand the surprising willingness of your cardiologist to "wait" until you failed with oral chelation (he said you would be back!), but usually they are much more aggressive, particularly when you have insurance that will cover the surgery.
This is rather personal, and you may not want to get into this for strangers to read, but they, too, would be interested in knowing of this part of your experience.
Early on you mentioned interest in my suggestions on diet. But, now you have said that you believe a vegetarian diet would help clean out the plaque. You may not have read all of my article on diet, but my research suggests that a vegetarian diet will never provide sufficient protein. (Click here to start reading my diet suggestions.)
So, what IS your diet? Are you eating meat? Now? In the past?
Finally, Robert, I have to comment on your comment that you feel younger than 82.
This may seem to be a simple matter of "good health," but I think there is a much more spiritual explanation to it.
I believe that we, you and I, are immortal spiritual beings, occupying a body for a period of time, and that the immortal spiritual being has no age, but, of course, the body does. To whatever degree you believe yourself to be nothing more than a body, then you can "feel" old. But, when you recognize yourself as a spiritual being, you can separate your own condition from the condition of the body -- and be ageless.
Finally, finally, Robert, I thank you very much for permission to publish your story. I've done that and it is located at http://www.oralchelation.com/testimonial/test26.htm .
I've published it with every word that you have sent, and every one of my words, as I very much prefer to do -- I don't edit!
I would add whatever further information you care to provide in this same format -- at the end of the page.
But, then I would re-write all this material into a more flowing text (leaving this original in place) and publish the same story, different order of ideas, as the main subject of the December 2000 edition of The Wednesday Letter. I have more than 2,000 subscribers to my free electronic monthly newsletter -- The Wednesday Letter. They write me often about the Letter and I am confident that all these 2,000+ subscribers read my Letters -- even though they are usually quite lengthy.
You've received a few of them that I've sent?
So, once I get your photo, and any further data, I would prepare it for the December 2000 newsletter.
I would link that newsletter to THIS page, as the original source, and I would NOT include your street address or phone numbers on the Wednesday Letter version, but would include your eMail. So, you might well expect some eMail messages.
I've done this with others and they have reported to me that it was interesting to see who would write what!
The Christmas edition will be a blessing to the many people who will be facing decisions similar to yours, problems similar to yours -- at the time of our celebration of the birth of Christ. Yours will be a gift of great value to these people!

The other product was OCC by Gero Vita Labs. It had many of the same ingredients as Life Glow Plus but smaller quantities. It lacked EDTA.
Their web site is www.gvi.com They used a number of herbal ingredients. Price was $29.95 for a 1 month supply (90 capsules - 1 taken 3 times daily)
When numbness in my hands started to come back, I had finished using up that product and went back to Life Glow Plus. The numbness is beginning to become less after a week back on your formula. When I first started taking your product, I took only 15 capsules a day as my weight was less than 140 pounds and a statement on the capsule container said that the 20 capsules per day was recommended for a person weighing between 150 and 200 pounds. After 3 months at 15 capsules a day, I went to 10 per day as a sustaining dose.
My family doctor is no longer doing chelation as far as I know. There are a couple of doctors doing IV chelation here in Ocala and the one I visited wanted 30 to 40 visits at $100.00 each. I didn't go with that program because the costs would have to be paid out of my dwindling retirement savings.
Insurance? I have Medicare coverage and a Medicare Select supplement that is supposed to take care of doctors that accept assignment and also take care of the deductibles.
I printed out 38 pages that you had on Diet Relative To Diabetes And Life. The family doctor told me that I was a diet controlled diabetic so the 38 page article has given me a starting place in helping my body get back to health again. I will certainly try cutting sugar and carbohydrates from my diet right away. I'm sure that will help me a great deal!
I guess I wasn't thinking straight when I asked about a vegetarian diet.
I agree that there would not be enough protein. It was your raw food diet that was of more interest to me.
Yes I have eaten meat several times a week all of my life. I have cut away the obvious fats in order to lower my fat intake. Yes, I ate some veal today and will probably finish the frozen meats in the freezer.
Perhaps I should just throw out the frozen meats.
I believe that when I accepted Christ as my Savior that I inherited Eternal through Christ and that Heaven will be my home when I die.
I hope this soul searching has helped the both of us. If I send my picture by e-mail would that be ok?
