The Advantages of PPC Therapy

Circulation and Plaque Deposit: PPC is documented to help in atherosclerosis, where it helps reduce atherosclerotic plaque deposits, coronary artery disease (CAD), angina, peripheral artery disease (PAD) and carotid stenosis. It can also help improve walking distance and sexual potency.

Cholestrerolemia and Triglyceridemia: PPC lowers total cholesterol, LDL & VLDL (up to 36% reduction), triglycerides (up to 34 % reduction), improves HDL (up to 10-25 % elevation), reduces lipid peroxidation, and reduces hyperlipoproteinemia.

Kidney Disease: PPC can improve kidney function and can improve the effectiveness of kidney dialysis.

Liver Disease: PPC can improve liver function and can help reduce liver fibrosis and hepatitis.

RBCs: PPC can improve flexibility of RBC’s and decreases platelet aggregation (stickiness).

Cognitive Function: PPC can improve cognitive function, memory in elderly and conditions like Alzheimer’s, autism, and can reduce tardive dyskinesia (Parkinson’s)

Anti-Aging: PPC improves skin tone, flexibility and glow since it helps renew cell membranes.

PPC can also help improve circulation in conjunction with chelation

PPC Therapy
PPC is a mixture of essential phospholipids (lecithin and phosphatidylcholine) made from soybeans.

Developed in Europe for atherosclerosis PPC is primarily used to remove the deposits of fatty plaque in arteries and other blood vessels. The most important effect of PPC is its remarkable ability to reduce plaque deposits in the artery wall. PPC therapy increases the heart’s ability to withstand stress and is valuable for individuals who have suffered a heart attack or other heart injury.

PPC is also known as phoshatidylcholine or polyenylphosphatidylcholine. In various countries PPC is also known and sold as Plaquex and Lipostabil.

PPC aids in the removal of cholesterol deposits from cell membranes, arteries, fat cells, muscles, and connective tissue.

This excess cholesterol is then transported to the liver for excretion. PPC also lowers the level of lipoprotein A, a critical factor in the formation of blood clots during heart attacks or stroke. It cleanses the fat from the arteries in the body, and improves circulation to the heart, brain, and other vital organs. In some patients it can also improve cognitive function (memory) and a return of sexual potency.

The use of PPC over the years by chelation doctors worldwide has proven that PPC is extremely useful in helping patients avoid By-Pass surgery, angioplasty, amputations (especially in diabetics) and strokes.

PPC’s main therapeutic uses are:

  • Reduces angina (heart pain)
  • Lowers high blood pressure
  • Decreases LDL (bad cholesterol)
  • Increases HDL (good cholesterol)
  • Lowers Lipoprotein A
  • Improves sexual potency
  • Protects damaged heart muscles
  • Reduces homocysteine levels
  • Improves kidney function
  • Improves cognitive function (memory)

PPC Therapy FAQs

After assessment and laboratory testing with a chelation doctor, PPC IV therapy is given by intravenous drip to a maximum frequency of three treatments per week. Every patient will also be prescribed an oral supplement protocol which potentiates the effect of the IV treatments.

Each IV treatment takes about 2 ½ hours and is given with the patient seated in a comfortable recliner chair, in which they can read, work on a laptop, or visit with their neighbor. Depending on the patient’s condition, it is usually recommended that an initial course of 20 to 30 weekly or bi-weekly treatments be taken. After that, monthly booster treatments are recommended to maintain the benefits originally gained by the first series of treatments.

Yes, very safe. In contrast to IV Chelation treatments, IV PPC are even more safe. This is because PPC does not bind to any toxic heavy metals and consequently there is no possible damage to the kidneys. Actually the opposite is true, PPC improves kidney function, so regular kidney function tests are not done as frequently during PPC treatments.
Adverse effects most commonly reported from PPC include diarrhea, and fatigue. Seriously ill patients, especially candidates for By-Pass surgery, angioplasty, amputation or stroke will most of the time experience diarrhea at the beginning of treatments, which is easily controlled by an anti-diarrheal medicine. These patients may also have elevated liver enzymes, but as a rule, after some treatments the liver enzymes will normalize.
SOY ALLERGY is the only contraindication to the use of PPC. There are no known drug interactions. While on PPC most patients are free to take many medications such as B-Blockers, nitroglycerine, calcium channel blockers, etc.
Chelation is the intravenous treatment which helps remove the accumulation of toxic heavy metals in the body that is the cause of many health problems. PPC therapy is NOT Chelation therapy, since it does NOT remove heavy metals.
The main differences are in their uses. PPC is much more effective in cardiovascular conditions like atherosclerosis and heart disease, while GPC is by far more effective in improving cognitive function (memory) and in helping post-stroke patients.

GPC IV Therapy is also available at the Optimum Wellness Integrated Clinic. It was also developed in Europe and is also derived from soybeans.

PPC IV Therapy can be used as a standalone treatment for lowering blood cholesterol, improving kidney function or improving sexual potency. It can also be part of an integrated treatment program for atherosclerosis, along with EDTA Chelation treatment.

When PPC is used in conjunction with EDTA Chelation even greater results can be attained. Not every Chelation doctor offers PPC, but because the Optimum Wellness Integrated Clinic remains at the forefront of treating “disease” with integrative IV therapies we offer PPC as an added Chelation regimen. They are both enhanced when used with a total nutritional program including professional supplements, and the adaptation of a “Heart-Smart” diet.

Other lifestyle modifications that are encouraged are exercise, stress management, minimal use of caffeinated and alcohol beverages and the elimination of tobacco products.

PPC IV Therapy is not covered by Alberta Health Care. Some private (work) insurance companies may cover part of the therapy, but our clinic does not do any “third party” billing. After each treatment you will be provided with a computerized invoice for either your insurance coverage or for your personal files. If you opt to pay for the complete program ahead of time you will receive only one invoice.
