I remember reading about a case where someone restored circulation in really dead looking toes or fingers, but I don't remember where it was at the moment. It might have been something to do with cayenne. You might do some Internet research on it. Apparently hyperbaric oxygen treatments can help. There was something about light treatment in Germany. It's a nasty situation--I've known people that have had gangrene. I've been experimenting on my circulation with gingko, coQ10, niacin, etc. The first time I took niacin I turned bright red and itchy in seconds.
It was astonishing. Now I only get the very faintest tingling, so things can be helped. I sort of look at the body as a place in time and that you can achieve reversals by concentrated effort if you know what to do. Mary J.

I did some looking on dogpile.com with gangrene and cayenne.
I came across some sites: http://www.sequentialhealing.com/herbs/cayenne.html
http://www.egregore.com/herb/bloodpoi.htm
http://www.iamm.com/capsicum.htm#The Heling Power (I did cut and paste on this one)
Echinacea poultices are also recommended. Perhaps you could get in contact with a good herbalist. Hope this helps. I have a diabetic child, so I'm fairly familiar with complications of diabetes. Mary J.

Hi, Steve.

Get your father-in-law to the closest Certified Chelation Physician ASAP. Days could make the difference.

Call (800) 532-3688 for a listing of the closest ones to him & call for a consultation at once. Be sure to let them know of the situation so there will be no delay in chelating him.

Since YOUR knowing about this will not help HIM, there is a good chance that he will say to you something like: "I will consider the Chelation IF my "doctor" recommends it. If that happens, remember: "You can take a horse to water..............." He has to choose and all we can do is open doors. It is a shame that there are people that would sooner die than learn something new.

Since I learned about chelation I have had NO cases of diabetic gangrene that required amputation. Before that (see home page article and the archives link below) I had an average of an amputation about every other year.

Let us know how he does. I know how he will do if he gets Chelated. However, there are still some people on this BB who have a hard time believing that some physicians would sooner see their patients be amputated rather than change their paradigm. Many of these same physicians are getting Chelated for THEIR problems but not telling their patients about it for fear of the reactions of their colleagues.

Walt
