Prior to administering EDTA infusion, the
practitioner will conduct tests to determine whether the patient has a condition that
will benefit from the therapy and that it is an appropriate remedy.
A comprehensive personal and family history
is taken with special emphasis on all aspects of previous health problems and current
status. Patient will be asked questions regarding diet, habits, emotional status,
exercise, stress levels and a detailed listing of symptoms.. A full physical examination
will also be performed with special emphasis on the circulatory and respiratory systems.
This is followed by a series of medical
tests such as electrocardiogram, chest XRay, blood tests, urine tests, diet and other
tests and hair analysis. Exercise tolerance tests are used to determine how the heart,
lungs and circulation responds to activity. A Doppler (sound wave) examination will be
carried out to establish a 'before' picture of circulatory system.
