Medicardium is the first over-the-counter product that allows anyone to enjoy the benefits of EDTA suppository chelation in the privacty of their own home–without the needles. EDTA chelation has been shown to remove heavy metals and calcifications. Ships fresh from the manufacturer. †Results may vary.
Magnesium EDTA Suppository Chelation
Medicardium allows anyone to experience the advantages of chelation in the privacy of their own home -- without the needles. Medicardium is a rectal suppository that aids in removing toxic heavy metals, which may correspond to accelerated aging, from the body.
For more than 50 years, EDTA has been used to improve circulation and the detoxification of mercury, lead, aluminum, arsenic, cadmium, uranium and nickel. Medicardum is the only well absorbed EDTA chelation suppository made with Magnesium Di-Potassium.
The advantages of intravenous EDTA chelation therapy have been well established. (Read Position Paper: American College for Advancement in Medicine). Even in the U.S. the FDA has allowed EDTA chelation for the last 50 years - although its use has been restricted to the removal of toxic metals (i.e. lead, cadmium, uranium, etc.) Given the role of EDTA as an accepted treatment for the removal of unwanted toxic metals from the body, any dispute that "EDTA doesn't work" is reduced to nonsense. The extended role of EDTA as a tool to remove arterial plaque, prevent bypass surgery, or perform functions that affect conventional medicine "in the breadbasket," is where controversy arises.
Why use EDTA Suppositories?
As we age, our bones and teeth lose calcium, which may end up into the arteries, muscles, joints and organs.
According to Spencer Feldman, the developer of Medicardium, every cell is activated by calcium. For example, calcium entering a muscle cell enables contraction. This is a good thing. But once the calcium has done its job, the cell has a 'calcium pump' that pushes the calcium out of the cell. The calcium can then go back to a place it belongs, such as the bones.
As we age, the calcium pumps in our cells become less efficient. The cells have a harder and harder time pumping the used calcium out. Calcium starts to build up in all the places it does not belong. Atherosclerosis, muscle stiffness and arthritis are problems of aging resulting from calcium build up in the soft tissues. Fibromyalgia is an extreme example of the build-up of calcium in the muscles. The ultimate build up of calcium in soft tissues is rigor mortis, when all the cells are flooded with calcium.
Calcium build-up in soft tissues makes us get old and stiff. For example, when calcium builds up in muscle cells, the muscles can't relax; they remain contracted and we become more and more stiff. We can't stretch as well as we used to and often, we are in pain. Much of arteriosclerosis is due to calcium accumulation in the blood vessels. The resulting rigidity of artery walls makes them less resilient to the pressure of blood pumping through them, and more subject to damage. Calcium accumulation in the capillaries is especially insidious. Because capillaries can only let blood cells pass through single file, any plaque prevents blood from getting through. The result is 'micro-strokes' throughout the body, resulting in widespread cell death. Keeping those capillaries free and clear is one of the most important anti-aging measures you can take. Even worse conditions include kidney stones, gallstones, calcium deposits in prostate, women’s' breasts and even in glands like the pituitary. In addition, too much calcium in the blood causes an abnormally increased tendency of the blood to clot! This increased viscosity (thickness) of the blood also causes sluggish circulation.
Spencer Feldman suggests that Medicardium reverses the aging effects of calcium build up in soft tissues. In his explanation, various elements such as calcium, magnesium, lead and aluminum have differing atomic weights. Examples of 'heavy' metals are lead, mercury, cadmium and aluminum; all are toxic to the body.
'Lighter' elements include calcium, zinc, magnesium and selenium; these elements are needed by the body but can become toxic under certain circumstances. When calcium migrates from the bones and teeth into the organs and soft tissues, it becomes a toxic metal because it doesn't belong there and it is doing harm.
The magnesium/Di-Potassium EDTA in Medicardium first attaches to calcium, chelating it out of the soft tissues (including the blood). This shifts the calcium balance in the blood, making the body think it has too little calcium. The mechanism to store calcium becomes activated. The EDTA carrying the calcium lets go of the calcium when it bumps into heavier elements such as lead and mercury. The calcium dropped by the EDTA is grabbed by the body and put back in the bones and teeth where it belongs. Meanwhile, the EDTA keeps hold of the toxic heavy metals and safely carries them out of your body.
Every day your heart pumps 1,900 gallons of blood through the 100,000 miles of living pipes that make up your circulatory system. Over the course of your life, your heart will pump some 2 billion times moving 48 million gallons of blood through your arteries, capillaries and veins.
Unfortunately, heart attacks are the leading cause of death in America. Toxins, infections, stress, poor diet and the effects of aging cause the arteries to become brittle and filled with plaque, and blood to thicken and become harder to move.
If you are suffering from circulatory disturbances or simply want to increase and maintain your vitality, then ask your doctor if chelation is right for you.

Mercury is a heavy metal and potent neurotoxin. A chief source of contact comes from your own dentist - producing mercury exposure both while making and inserting fillings, even more so after getting rid of them. Each silver (amalgam) filling may release up to 17 mcg. of mercury every single day. This increases to 500 mcg. if the person smokes cigarettes, drinks hot liquids, chews gum, has acidic saliva, or the grinds their teeth at night. Mercury accumulates in the brain, heart, kidneys, and endocrine glands and can cause depression, auto-immune diseases, memory loss, tremors, anemia, and heart attacks.
Uranium is a radioactive element that breaks up eventually into lead. There have been 2,000 nuclear detonations on our planet since Hiroshima, throwing uranium into our atmosphere, not taking into effect the events like Three Mile Island and Chernobyl. And recently, environmental uranium has seen an increase with the military's expanded use of depleted uranium. Radioactive materials can cause cancer and birth defects.
Lead is a heavy metal that can be found in cigarettes, cosmetics, plastics, batteries, gasoline, insecticides, pottery glaze, soldered pipes, and paint. Although one of the most well-known sources of contact has been determined to be ordinary drinking water (especially tap), little action has been taken to alleviate public exposure. The U.S. General Accounting Office recently admitted that about 50% of the U.S. population alone may be getting unsafe levels of lead exposure from this source. Other reports concur and have concluded that decaying plumbing is another major source of exposure (mostly from solder in modern plumbing; from the plumbing itself in lines installed before 1930). Lead accumulates in the brain, spleen, liver, kidneys, and bones. Like mercury, lead is well-established as a powerful neurotoxin and a leading cause of pediatric neurotoxicity. It has been strongly linked to child delinquency. For each 30 mcg of lead in a child's blood, his or her IQ drops 10 points.
Aluminum may be found in drinking water (especially tap water), antiperspirants, baking powders, feminine hygiene products, cow and soy milk, baby formula, antacids, aluminum foil, pots and pans. It accumulates in the skin, bones, brain, and kidneys and has been linked to Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease.
Other less known or less prominent metals, which can also be removed through chelation therapy, and are worth noting, include:
- Cadmium is a heavy metal extensively used in industry. Current reports have sourced medical waste incinerators as a chief source of exposure to the public. Some other sources include cigarettes, soft drinks, water softeners, seafood, rubber, motor oil, pesticides, fungicides and poly-vinyl plastics. Cadmium can initiate chronic fatigue syndrome, hair loss, high blood pressure, edema, arthritis, kidney stones, and impotence.
- Arsenic may also be found in cigarette smoke, laundry detergents, beef, seafood and drinking water (especially tap water). It can initiate headaches, confusion, and sleepiness. Arsenic can harm the kidneys, liver, and the lungs. As with beryllium, arsenic has been connected to considerable efforts by government and industry to cover-up its effects and down play the exposure risks.
- Barium compounds may be found in soaps, ceramics, paper, glass, plastics, textiles, dyes, fuel additives, rubber, paint, and pesticides. Barium toxicity can initiate vomiting, diarrhea, and abdominal pain.
- Nickel is usually found in stainless steel cutlery, pots and pans, coins, dental fillings, and batteries. It builds up in the bones, kidneys, liver, lungs, immune system, and the brain, where it can bring about genetic damage and cancer.
Note: The main focus of this page has been to educate and teach as to the commonness of toxic metal exposure. It is not to assume that all toxic metals can be successfully removed from the body using EDTA, whether taken intravenously, orally, or rectally.
The Unique Effect of the Medicardium's Magnesium Di-Potassium EDTA
Medicardium EDTA chelation suppositories are specially formulated for health benefits that go beyond removing toxic heavy metals from the body.
Medicardium is a custom-made Magnesium Di-Potassium EDTA formula. Magnesium and potassium alleviate stress, anxiety and body tension, promoting deep relaxation. These minerals, which most of us need more of, also have important anti-aging benefits.
One of the reasons Medicardium has such a relaxing effect is its unique use of Magnesium di-Potassium as an EDTA carrier.
The direct absorption of the magnesium and potassium into the bloodstream re-sets the autonomic nervous system, taking you out of sympathetic mode ('fight-or-flight' - stress) into parasympathetic ('rest and digest').
In parasympathetic mode, we feel happier, our bodies can repair and renew, and we digest and absorb food better, and can relax.

Store below 80 F (27 C). Keep out of sunlight
Warning:Keep out of the reach of children. Do not use if pregnant or nursing. Those with kidney dysfunction, liver disease, tuberculosis, or low platelet counts should only use under a doctor's supervision. Do not use if currently on blood thinning or blood pressure medication. Do not use before surgery. Individuals with hemorrhoids may experience mild discomfort. This product may lower blood sugar.
Shipping: To ensure freshness, Medicardium ships directly from the manufacturer.
For rectal use only. Use right after a bowel movement. Freeze before using. To remove suppository, separate the two plastic strips at the pointed end of the suppository wrapper and peel back. Remove wrapper before inserting into rectum. Insert past sphincter muscle. After insertion, remain sitting or lying down for 30 minutes. Best used before bed. Use every third day or as directed by your health care provider. Individuals with poor colonic mucosal integrity may experience stinging. If this occurs, notify your health care provider.
How should I store it?
Medicardium can be stored in the refrigerator and should be used when cold.
When should I use it?
Use the suppositories in the evening. Make sure that you have already gone to the bathroom at least once that day before using the suppositories.
What kind of lubrication should I use?
You must use sufficient olive oil for lubrication or it will sting.
How long do I have to hold the suppository in?
80% of the suppository is absorbed within 15 minutes, the rest in 30 minutes. If after 15 minutes you need to go to the bathroom, that's okay, you've already gotten most of the benefit.
Is part of the suppository missing?
When the suppository is made, there is always a bit of air at the bottom of the suppository due to the manufacturing process. If the suppository melts and re-solidifies, then the air bubble can move around the suppository making it look like part is missing. Rest assured, by weight, all the ingredients are there.
Part of the suppository crumbled/broke, what do I do?
We only use cocoa butter as a base in our suppositories. There are no chemical stabilizers used. Because of this, an occasional a suppository may crumble or break. To fix it, simply put the remaining suppositories (still inside their plastic wrapper) in a bowl full of warm water with the points facing down for 5 minutes or until they have become soft. Next put the suppositories in the freezer for 30 minutes.
They will now have reformed and they should be ready to use again. The heating does not affect the ingredients in any way. If you do not wish to do this, call us and we will replace them immediately. We would rather replace the occasional crumbled suppository than add toxic chemical stabilizers.
I feel a mild stinging sensation, what can I do?
EDTA is a salt and like any salt, it can sting an open wound. If you are feeling a stinging sensation, you may have hemorrhoids or a rectal fissure. Dry hard stool can also nick the colon. Make sure the suppository is frozen, and then apply a heavy coating of Vaseline to the suppository before inserting it. If you feel any discomfort, it will usually pass within a few minutes. If not, then wait two days before trying again. You may want to use a hemorrhoid cream as a lubricant.
I'm getting leg cramps, why?
Leg cramps are an indication of calcium deficiency; take the RDA of calcium & magnesium orotate in the morning.
Will this cause bone loss?
Chelation has been shown to increase bone mass 1% per year (as opposed to the usual 1% loss per year) due to the action of the parathyroid gland and the stimulation of the osteoblasts.
What supplements should I take along with the chelation?
Along with the toxic metals that chelation removes, it will also remove some calcium, zinc, and chromium. You should take a multi-mineral supplement in the morning to put these minerals back into your body. Since only a small amount is removed, any standard multi-mineral product will be sufficient.
What should I take if I'm working on atherosclerosis (plaque)?
You may wish to add Endosterol to your chelation program.
Why do I feel like I have to go to the bathroom after inserting it?
- Your bowel transit time is too slow. A person can go the bathroom every day and still be constipated if what comes out is what went in three days earlier. If this is the case, it should subside in a few days after you have normalized your magnesium levels and your transit time.
- You may have mistimed the suppository and didn't use it soon enough after going to the bathroom. Next time, use the suppository immediately after an evacuation. Staying seated will make this easier than walking around. Do not try to hold the suppository in if the urge to evacuate is strong, you could get cramps and nausea from trying to stop the natural peristaltic action of your intestines. Go to the bathroom, and remember next time to insert it after you have already gone to the bathroom.
If you get very loose stools after the suppository you should check to see if you are currently taking any other supplements with magnesium in them. Excess magnesium can cause loose stools even 12 hours later. Remove any other sources of supplemental magnesium from your diet.
I feel nauseous, why?
You may have mistimed the suppository and are trying to hold back passing stools. Another possibility is that your liver is detoxifying, in which case it should resolve after your first few suppositories.
Why do I feel so relaxed?
What you are feeling is your ‘fight or flight” system turning off.
My urine smells funny, why?
What you are noticing is the smell of the toxins leaving your body. This is normal and will pass.
