DEAD for 2 minutes… Now Running Marathons Again!

Four little letters saved Randy’s life. They could be saving yours, too!

Randy L., age 43, thought he was in the best shape of his life. Until he suffered a heart attack so severe that he was “dead” for two minutes before doctors revived him.


His diagnosis? Coronary heart disease. His prognosis? Less than 2 years to live.

Then Randy discovered a safe, natural treatment that made his deadly plaque as harmless as a teaspoon of sugar. Doctors couldn’t believe what happened next…

Dear Friend,

Las Vegas realtor and marathon runner Randy Lazer no longer takes life for granted. Especially after being “dead” for two minutes.

It happened back in October, 2002. Randy, age 43, just finished his third marathon and was brimming with energy. He thought he was in the best shape of his life.

Until he was rushed to the ER suffering from a massive heart attack.

Randy’s attack was so severe, he “died” for two minutes before doctors were able to revive him. Randy even recalls the white lights he saw when his heart stopped beating.

When it was over, the doctors did not have good news.

Randy’s coronary heart disease was “severely advanced.” Rock-hard plaque choked his arteries. His blood flow was severely restricted. His heart was weak and he was at prime risk for another heart attack or stroke.

His cardiologist gave him a year to live. Maybe two.

Randy may have been given a death sentence. But it wasn’t going to make him stop living.

He ate healthier foods. He started juicing. He exercised and continued running. Even after five additional heart surgeries, invasive procedures and a cocktail of drugs, Randy stayed upbeat and positive.

Finally, Randy discovered 4 little letters that saved his life.

It was an amino acid treatment so safe that the United States Food and Drug Administration has approved it as an additive to baby food.

When it entered Randy’s bloodstream, it neutralized the rogue calcium deposits that were super-glued his artery walls…

Blasted them into harmless powder…

And swept it into his kidneys where it was unceremoniously evicted from Randy’s body as a component of urine.

And if that wasn’t enough, this amino acid treatment scrubbed clean every one of the 75,000 miles of arteries, veins, and capillaries in his body…

Allowing nutrient-rich, life-giving blood to surge places it hasn’t reached in years—or even in decades.

His mind became sharp and clear. Leg and muscle cramps faded away. Weakness and fatigue was replaced by strength and endurance.

As Randy’s body rallied, the weakness and fatigue that plagued him was replaced by deep reservoirs of vibrant new energy.

Today, Randy feels reborn…

He just finished his seventh Las Vegas marathon and regularly trains at a local gym. He feels better than he has in 20 years…

And he credits his remarkable recovery to a safe and natural therapy that turned his deadly plaque into harmless dust.

So what is this secret weapon that saved Randy’s life… when the world’s most expensive drugs could not?

Scientists call it “ethylenediaminetetracetic acid,” But please don’t be put off by the fancy-schmancy jargon.

The rest of us refer to it with four little letters: “E-D-T-A.”

EDTA is backed by 1,823 medical studies and 1,526 U.S. doctors prescribe it every day. Dentists even use it as an ‘irrigator’ during endodontic procedures and root canals.

And it’s so effective, it could mean the beginning of the end of stenting, angioplasty, bypass and almost ALL unnecessary, invasive, and risky heart surgeries—FOR GOOD.

Are there any side effects? Yes. Amazing ones!

Thousands of people who have used EDTA therapy report…

SPECIAL ALERT: Chelation: Natural Miracle for Protecting Your Heart and Enhancing Your Health.

Learn more about this remarkable life-saver in the just-released Easy Health Options® Alert: Chelation: Natural Miracle for Protecting Your Heart and Enhancing Your Health.

EDTA, first synthesized in Germany in 1935, is a simple amino acid, remarkably similar in composition to common household vinegar.

In fact, EDTA is so safe that the American Heart Association recommends massive direct intravenous injections as treatment for people who have been exposed to toxic levels of lead, mercury, aluminum, and cadmium.

More than 200,000 children in the U.S. have undergone chelation therapy as a treatment for lead poisoning, for example.

And both the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) approve of it for use in foods that are enjoyed by everyone from our youngest babies to our oldest seniors.

Plus, its reported to be up to three times safer than an aspirin a day for your heart and circulation, too.

EDTA is used every day to help stabilize fats, oils, and vitamins… to keep potato products from turning brown… to keep fish and shellfish looking fresh in the supermarket…

…to preserve the flavor and consistency of milk products… preserve canned vegetables… keep beer from exploding in your face when you open the can… preserve the flavor of soft drinks… and much, much more.

Blocked Arteries Destroy Hearts, Brains and LIVES!

According to the U.S. government, one in every 300 Americans will be killed by a blocked artery next year.

heart attack victim

Every 34 seconds an American dies as the result of a blocked cardiac artery.

As an American, there’s a 90 percent chance that poor circulation will trigger a serious health problem at some point in your life.

More than 6.8 million Americans undergo heart bypass, balloon angioplasty and other circulation-related procedures each year.

700,000 Americans will suffer a sudden blockage of blood flow to the brain next year — 83 every hour of the day.

Chelation therapy has been conclusively shown to be up to 82 PERCENT EFFECTIVE at dissolving the plaque that blocks arteries!

The Chelation Miracle in Action:

Artery narrowed by atherosclerosis

1. Plaque Begins Clogging Your Arteries In Childhood…

By the time you reached age 10, rogue calcium molecules — calcium deposited where it doesn’t belong — began gluing fatty cholesterol deposits to the inner walls of your coronary arteries, forming plaque.

Normal Blood Flow vs. Blocked Artery due to atherosclerosis

2. Clogged Arteries Can Trigger a Heart or Brain Disaster…

Each year since, your plaque deposits have grown larger, gradually starving your heart, brain cells and every other cell in your body, and setting you up for a serious health problem.

Healthy Coronary Artery vs. Blocked Artery (Blood clot, Severe plaque build up)

3. EDTA Blasts Away Plaque and Leaves Your Arteries Clean:

EDTA helps remove the calcium “glue” from the blockage… plaque is dissolved, leaving artery walls clean. The EDTA — along with the now-harmless calcium and cholesterol are excreted by the kidneys.

SPECIAL ALERT!: Chelation: Natural Miracle For Protecting Your Heart and Enhancing Your Health.


EDTA chelation is given two ways — by IV under a doctor’s supervision or by oral supplements taken at home. The word “chelation” is taken from the Greek word for “claw” — the EDTA grabs and dispatches poisons from your body like an eagle’s claw grabs and dispatches a helpless field mouse.

In 1955, research conducted at the Providence Hospital in Detroit, Michigan found that EDTA also helps claw away rogue calcium in your joints, kidneys, the bones of your inner ear, and that glues cholesterol deposits to the inner walls of your arteries.

In fact, 1,823 scientific studies have proven that EDTA is up to 82% effective at eliminating rogue calcium from plaque, causing clogs to soften, let go and be flushed away!

Put simply, chelation therapy is widely known to be a powerful remedy for — and protection against — heart, joint, kidney and even hearing problems!

U.S. medical associations — including the American College for Advancement in Medicine (ACAM) — are dedicated to training doctors in the use of chelation therapy to improve hardening of the arteries and other chronic degenerative issues.

As a result, 1,526 U.S. doctors enthusiastically recommend EDTA chelation to their patients. And chelation therapy is given to more than 1 million Americans and 3 million patients in Canada, Europe, Australia, and South America every year.

A healthier circulatory system is the secret to a healthier body

As millions of Americans and others around the world continue to use chelation therapy to remove toxic metals from their bodies and deadly plaque from their circulatory systems, something else is happening — something truly miraculous:

As toxins are removed… as circulatory systems are scrubbed clean… and as abundant supplies of life-giving blood begin surging through their bodies… both patients and doctors report that scores of dangerous, chronic, painful, and even deadly health problems simply vanish:
