deftab720 pardpardeftab720ri720 f0fs24 cf0 Heart disease is a collection
of gradually increasing symptoms that affect the heart’d5s ability to pump blood through
the body. Perhaps one of the first symptoms that can show up is high cholesterol. Usually
the next thing to show up is high blood pressure. This can then lead to a condition known as
atherosclerosis, which is basically referred to in lay terms as ‘d2blocked arteries.’d3
The next step for most people is sometimes angina, or pain in the chest, and if left
untreated, that can lead to thickening of the heart walls that we refer to as ‘d2congestive
heart failure,’d3 and eventually it can lead to heart attack and even death.
The conventional medical approach to managing
heart disease is to attempt to control each individual symptom with a different medication.
So they’d5ll try to control the high cholesterol with a cholesterol-lowering drug; they’d5ll
try to control the blood pressure with one or more blood pressure-controlling drugs,
and so on. In those cases, they can be valuable tools for the short term. But long-term, for
case management, they produce side effects and they don’d5t address the root causes
of the condition.
When patients come to see me, I always start with a thorough history that looks at their
diet and lifestyle factors: heart disease is one hundred percent related to diet and
lifestyle and so if they have this, I need to know what factors are going on in each
patient’d5s history so I can help teach them how to reverse those. Next, I’d5m going to
order basic blood work where I need to look at things like lipid panel, but also some
things that are often missed, like homocysteine levels and C-reactive protein levels, because
those factors are actually some of the things that actually cause vascular inflammation.
I’d5ll then also order electrocardiograms to look at the electrical conductivity of
the heart, usually a Doppler echocardiogram to look at the cardiac output, is it pumping
blood efficiently?, and sometimes a CT scan to see if they have calcium deposits in the
coronary arteries.
I’d5ll always base my treatments on test results. For example, if someone has high
levels of homocysteine, which is a normal metabolic waste product and can actually damage
the blood vessel linings, the treatment involves high levels of vitamins B6, B12, folic acid,
and an amino acid called glycine. If the patient is consuming a lot of dairy products such
as milk or cheese, and those products happen to be pasteurized, one of the risk factors
is an enzyme in cow’d5s milk, known as xanthine oxidase, will be broken up into fragments
which the body absorbs into the bloodstream, and those xanthine oxidase fragments actually
cause inflammation and damage to the lining of the blood vessels. That, in turn, causes
the elevated cholesterol and the other symptoms we see in heart disease. So it would be very
important for those patients to give up their dairy products completely.
If a patient is presenting with angina, or
chest pain, one of the problems is either a blockage or a constriction of the blood
vessels supplying the heart with blood, which are called the coronary arteries. The main
form of treatment I use is the amino acid arginine, which stimulates the body to produce
its own natural nitric oxide, which can help dilate the blood vessels and stimulate the
healing of the blood vessels. In every case of patients with heart disease, I always prescribe
a nutritional plan consisting of organic, whole foods and no processed foods. I will
supplement essential vitamins and minerals. In every case, I’d5m always prescribing some
form of appropriate exercise program and stress-reduction plan. And I always am using the herbs hawthorn
berry and gingko biloba’d1the hawthorn will help nourish the heart, and the gingko biloba
increases the fine circulation in the body.
Patients who follow my treatment protocol have had great success. Their high blood pressure
is lower, their high cholesterol is lower, their angina goes away, their atherosclerosis
is reversed, and within a year, most of them are off all prescription medications. If someone
would like to prevent or reverse heart disease, I recommend they adopt a natural living lifestyle
that includes whole foods, no processed foods, essential nutrient supplementation, and exercise.
I would also recommend they seek out a qualified naturopathic doctor who can help them manage
the more serious aspects of this condition. f1
