In Memoriam: Paul Jaconello, MD
It is with great sadness we communicate the loss of Dr. Paul Jaconello. He passed peacefully at home surrounded by family and loved ones on Sunday, July 23, 2017.
Dr. Paul Jaconello graduated from the London Hospital Medical School in London, England in 1967. After interning in medicine, surgery and obstetrics, he obtained a fellowship in anesthesia. He emigrated to Canada in 1973 and became an assistant professor in anesthesia at The University Hospital, Saskatoon, and the McMaster University Medical College.
In 1975, Paul Jaconello moved to Toronto and started a general family practice in which he began to study and apply nutritional and orthomolecular medicine. This lead him to establish an independent clinic in 1979, dedicated to combining conventional medicine with the safe and effective use of non-conventional therapies, including: low dose immunotherapy, chelation and detoxification therapy, medical ozone, orthomolecular medicine, nutritional and lifestyle counseling.
Dr. Paul Jaconello was a founding member of the Canadian Society for Orthomolecular Medicine, a Diplomat of the American Board of Chelation Therapy and the International Board of Metal Toxicology. He was a member of the Institute for Functional Medicine, the International College of Integrative Medicine, and part of the OMA Complementary and Integrative Medicine Interest Group.
Paul dedicated his life to helping others, researching and administering advanced medical treatments to support improved outcomes for his patients. He mentored many colleagues in their practice of integrative medicine, and dedicated his personal time to supporting organizations involved with education and advocacy for integrative medicine. He participated in primary care conferences, to educate and share his experience with colleagues, and also provided the public with information about integrative medicine, through published articles and presentations – including the Orthomolecular Health Public Information Series.
The Canadian Society for Orthomolecular Medicine honours Dr. Paul Jaconello for his virtue and brave dedication to advancing orthomolecular medicine in Canada. He will be deeply missed by his patients, colleagues, medical and clinic staff.

Dr. Jaconello had special interest in:
EDTA Chelation Therapy
EDTA Chelation Therapy is the management of cardiovascular disease and other degenerative conditions associated with the accumulation of calcium in sites outside of the bony tissue where its presence has been implicated as one source of the dysfunctional state, e.g. in rheumatoid, osteoarthritis and scleroderma.

Heavy Metal Detoxification
Heavy metal detoxification is a process by which the body burden of heavy metals is reduced. The detoxification procedure is accomplished by the use of chelating agents; nutritional preparation; the removal of silver dental amalgams, if needed; and as much as possible, the avoidance of mercury contaminated foods. During the process, kidney and liver functions are monitored. Also, attention is given to proper liver and gastrointestinal support during the detoxification programme.

Prevention and Treatment of Cardiovascular Disease
Proper diet, regular exercise, suitable vitamin and mineral supplementation accompanied by an annual physical with appropriate tests are important in the prevention of cardiovascular disease. However, with established disease, intervention with appropriate diet, nutritional supplementation, proper exercise and suitable pharmaceutical drugs is important. Along with these measures, EDTA Chelation therapy is very beneficial in treating cardiovascular disease because it improves blood flow thereby improving the perfusion of oxygen to the heart, reduces calcium build up in the vascular wall and reduces free radical stress.
