Given that cardiovascular disease is the #1 cause of death within industrialized societies, anything that can slow the underlying pathological process in its decades-long, mostly subclinical march towards heart attack, embolism or stroke, is worth considering as a prophylactic — especially if it is as safe, accessible and affordable drug alternative.
Indeed, a new study published in the International Journal Cardiology indicates that aged garlic extract, in combination with vitamin B12, folic acid, vitamin B6 and arginine, is capable of favorably altering the ratio of brown to white adipose (fat) tissue surrounding the heart muscle, reducing homocysteine (a blood vessel damaging amino acid) and slowing the progression of coronary artery calcification in human subjects.[i] (more…)
If you end up in the emergency room with a heart attack, make sure you insist on a 2 cc injection of magnesium sulfate.
In double-blind, placebo-controlled scientific study, they looked at 273 patients who were admitted to the hospital for a heart attack. The study published in one of the most prestigious medical journals revealed that after 4 weeks, the people who received the magnesium, only 7% died versus 19% who did not get the magnesium. That means magnesium cut the death rate a walloping 63%.
Are you taking blood thinners? If so you are not alone. Millions of people in the United States take either prescription medications, aspirin or a combination of both to thin their blood. Prescription blood thinners and aspirin have a number of side effects associated with them, some of which can be fatal. If you are tired of taking the risk, it is fortunate that nature offers several effective options that are just as effective and far safer.
Typically, blood thinners are prescribed if you have some kind of heart or blood vessel disease or if you have poor blood flow to your brain. Blood thinners are also prescribed for:
“Create the Disease and Offer the Cure” appears to be the overriding mandate of allopathic medicine subsuming what I learned in medical school – “First Do No Harm.”
The most recent “disease” is asymptomatic atrial fibrillation. The article on a physician’s site reads “Asymptomatic Atrial Fibrillation: Should You Be Concerned?” And, of course, the conclusion is ‘Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid.’ That’s the essence of ‘marketing disease to the masses’ that I talked about in my Death by Modern Medicine book. Here’s a shocking excerpt:
“Famed Madison Avenue wunderkind, Albert Lasker, considered the “Father of Modern Advertising”, was also a central player in the “Reach for a Lucky instead of a sweet” campaign. Right after the successful Lucky Strike campaign was over, Lasker, having made the most money in the history of advertising, decided to retire and go into a new direction. He wanted to become a fundraiser for medical research. (more…)
Whatever possessed medicos to use a known poison as a treatment for heart disease, there can be no possible excuse for the decades of harm and the millions of people who have died as a result of the deadly drug, digitalis.
For decades, the standard medical treatment for irregular heartbeat has been digitalis, now usually sold under the generic name of digoxin. It’s a killer, and no other term comes close to describing its effects. It kills 41% more people who take it than those who do not. Whether the patient-victims have diagnosed heart disease or not, and whether they’re male or female makes no difference. If you take digitalis, you’re 41% more likely to die. (more…)
Ongoing drug shortages are now being classified as a “national crisis” affecting the care and safety of severely ill patients. For quite some time we have been reading about the shortages of various drugs in the medical industry, and that includes magnesium sulfate. Another article this week is stating that the shortage persists, and it seems to be affecting all types of drugs, mainly because the pharmaceutical industry is not making acceptable profit from them. The federal government may also be buying up large inventories for their emergency programs and underground bases, who knows? (more…)
Dr. Bryan A. Cotton, a trauma surgeon in Houston, had not heard much about the new anticlotting drug Pradaxa other than the commercials he had seen during Sunday football games. Then people using Pradaxa started showing up in his emergency room. One man in his 70s fell at home and arrived at the hospital alert and talking. But he rapidly declined. “We pretty much threw the whole kitchen sink at him,” recalled Dr. Cotton, who works at Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center. “But he still bled to death on the table.” Unlike warfarin, an older drug, there is no antidote to reverse the blood-thinning effects of Pradaxa. “You feel helpless,” Dr. Cotton said. The drug has contributed to the bleeding deaths of at least eight patients at the hospital. “And that’s a very bad feeling for us.” Pradaxa has become a blockbuster drug in its two years on the market, bringing in more than $1 billion in sales for its maker, the privately held German drug maker Boehringer Ingelheim.

Question: You write that omega-3 oil, Ginkgo biloba, magnesium, grape seed extract, and pycnogenol are safer and more beneficial than Plavix. Do I need to take all of these or just some to replace my Plavix? (more…)
Magnesium, the fourth most abundant mineral in the body, plays a crucial role in activating over 300 chemical responses. It is responsible for the proper formation of bones, maintaining normal muscle function, regulating body temperature, and proper absorption of calcium. Increasingly, medical science is coming to believe that magnesium and other minerals missing from today’s diet might prevent cognitive disorders such as ADD, ADHD and bipolar disorder, as well as help prevent Alzheimer’s and mental decline as we age.
