Anyone looked into chelation therapy for plaque?
(Just trying to be less depressed about the recent finding that I have plaque.)
Won't claim to be an expert, but after my high calcium score, my Dr (a prominent 'paleo' physician) suggested looking into chelation. But my own investigations left me w high uncertainty including some downside, so I never did it.
In my then consult w Dr Gundry, largely based on my inflammation markers, he was much less concerned about it which eased my mind a bit. He felt that it was very often a relic of the past rather than a sign of present concern. Since then I focus on what I can do for current health instead of changing my past.
What I did do was switch to a more potent form of Vitamin K2 for which there is some support that can not only prevent but actually reverse calcification... as summarized here by the pretty scientifically rigorous and objective Dr Stephan Guyenet, PhD...

Here's the Rotterdam study which gave original strong favorable results for K2...

Here's the form of K2 I switched to later specifically noted by Chris Masterjohn...

[I would have to go back and listen to the last podcast he mentioned K2 in, but can't recall that Chris specifically addressed reversal?]
Because some of the research implies higher doses than single capsules, I periodically switch up dosing levels to 2x a few times a week and up to 4x every once in a while.
Will be interested to hear if you come up with any further insights on merits of K2 or reversal of calcification.
