What are the differences in effectiveness between chelation therapy vs taking ClearDrops?
Denise Stephens, ZOI CEO (00:00):
Lori, we're coming back to you.
Okay. So, I'm going to spin the wheel a little bit, and I'm going to ask about a question that we get asked a lot in the healthcare arena. And that is what is the difference between Chelating, heavy metals and toxins, So Chelation therapy as people know it versus taking ZOI ClearDrops?
Dr. Nikolaos Tsirikos-Karapanos, PharmD, MD, Cardiothoracic Surgeon (00:30):
I think this is a nice question! Very nice question coming from a healthcare professional. Fantastic Lori. Well, all right. So, the actual difference that the question is what is the actual difference between Intravenous Chelation, I.V. Chelation, versus taking ClearDrops. Let's give a very short thunder answer. Well, with clear drugs, you have oral chelation. You don't need a needle in your vein, and you don't need the associated risk. Let me make it very clear, I.V. Chelation predominantly with EDTA is an established form of medical treatment. If we have an acute clinical toxicity, this modality, this intravenous EDTA Chelation is appropriate. Okay. And must be done in a setting that monitoring is in place because one of the problems of Intravenous chelation with the EDTA is the acute reduction of potassium. And this can trigger very serious, potentially lethal cardiac arrhythmias. So intravenous Chelation is a medical treatment that must be done in places where monitoring is in place and with all the people and the equipment to deal with potential serious side effects, none of the above has ever been found with oral Chelation, with our gentle safe and effective water solution of water soluble zeolite fragments with ClearDrops, and look at this quantitatively with the intravenous chelation, you get a substantial amount of the Chelation agent into your circulatory system in a short period of time. What we achieve with ClearDrops is the extreme opposite slowly, progressively daily systemic action of a compound that is safe to reverse slowly and progressively the accumulation process.
Denise Stephens, ZOI CEO (03:13):
What a great answer, you know, Dr. Nikolaos, I'm sitting here and I'm thinking and always being the expert because you know, my mind, the engineer in me wants to really think we basically kind of arm the body in the event of too many toxins being, you know what I'm saying? Over time, we're setting the body up to be able to handle them so we're arming our bodies every day. Instead of having to go into that one acute situation that we get ourselves into, I agree there are some situations where people's jobs or whatever could create a very bad situation and ClearDrops would not be appropriate. You want to take that?
Dr. Nikolaos Tsirikos-Karapanos, PharmD, MD, Cardiothoracic Surgeon (03:55):
And I think Chelation as Lori, you know, very well usually it's not once and done. There are many sessions that you need to undergo and still there's a remaining problem there: it's a chronic problem. It's good If you start taking care of this chronic accumulation by taking ClearDrops, you will not end up needing something so aggressive like Intravenous Chelation!
Denise Stephens, ZOI CEO (04:33):
Great, great point. Great question, Lori. Thank you for bringing that to the table. Many, many people. Yeah. Many people, you know, Dr. Nikolaos, we hear people that are, you know, gathered getting these substances. Of course, illegally, we can't help a whole lot of illegal activity, but my goodness, if you want to do it right. And do it systematically, do it daily methodically, that's supporting the body's own ability right there. So
Dr. Nikolaos Tsirikos-Karapanos, PharmD, MD, Cardiothoracic Surgeon (05:02):
Absolutely. Well, one regarding illegal substances, please don't take illegal substances. It's very simple. Exactly. Exactly.
