Big Pharma-Funded Study Pushes New Heart Pill

A couple of weeks ago I told you about my patient Dan whose cardiologist tried to treat his heart disease by prescribing drugs like beta blockers, ACE inhibitors, calcium-channel blockers and diuretics.

None of them worked for Dan. And they don’t work for my other patients either. In fact, I’ve been telling you for years that these dangerous heart medications will leave you feeling worse than ever…

Yet the mainstream continues to push the same old advice and now is taking it a ridiculous step further.

In the latest issue of the journal Cell Reports,1 a team of scientists in England report they are attempting to add yet another prescription pill to their heart-care drug arsenal…

But, this time they’re pushing an oral antibiotic, minocycline, used to treat pneumonia, urinary tract infections and acne.

It comes with a long list of troubling side effects including nausea and diarrhea, hair loss, swelling of the tongue and genital inflammation. In severe cases, it can cause bleeding, trouble breathing – and ironically, chest pain.

The scientists are driving the idea that this antibiotic could be the next big cure-all for clearing plaque out of your arteries and increasing blood flow.

This finding boggles my mind. Just a little over a year ago, the FDA issued a warning that another antibiotic called clarithromycin is linked to an increased risk of death in heart disease patients.

And no surprise, this latest study was funded in part by a large British pharmaceutical company.

In my practice, I help my patients keep their blood vessels clear and flexible so they never need these drugs. And one of the first things I do is get their blood flowing with intravenous (IV) chelation.

You see, heavy metals like cadmium and lead can damage your circulatory system. They inactivate your body’s antioxidant defenses. They damage the cells that line the blood vessels. They can narrow arteries and lead to atherosclerosis or heart attack. A recent study known as the Trial to Assess Chelation Therapy (TACT), found that this therapy reduces cardiovascular events in heart patients – especially heart patients who also have diabetes.2

In fact, this same study found that one-third of the 1,700 heart attack survivors they followed who underwent IV chelation therapy had a:

  • 41% overall reduction in the risk of any cardiovascular event
  • 40% reduction in the risk of death from heart disease, stroke or heart attack
  • 52% reduction in recurrent heart attacks

I offer safe IV chelation to my patients. If you’d like more information about IV chelation, call 561-784-7852. My staff will be happy to answer your questions.

Boost blood flow to your heart naturally

Chelation is just one of the therapies we offer at the clinic. Here are two more ways I help my patients keep their blood vessels clear and flexible so they never have to take Big Pharma’s drugs…

  1. Boost nitric oxide with these amino acids. Nitric oxide (NO) is a colorless gas made by cells in your body. Some of its benefits include lower blood pressure, less arterial plaque and a reduced risk of blood clots.

    You can’t supplement with NO. But there are nutrients that can convert to NO in your body. Two of the best are L-arginine and citrulline. L-arginine is an amino acid that causes a biochemical reaction that creates nitric oxide and dilates blood vessels. Some of best arginine-rich foods are lobster, spinach and spirulina. You can also supplement. But make sure you buy either arginine or L-arginine. You can find it in capsules or powders. Avoid synthetic L-arginine.

    There’s another amino acid you should take along with your L-arginine. After you’ve been using it for a while, an enzyme starts blocking the NO conversion. That’s why you need citrulline. It blocks the enzyme so L-arginine continues to make NO.

    Take L-arginine and citrulline in a 5-to-1 ratio. I recommend daily doses of 6,000 mg of L-arginine and 1,000 mg of citrulline.

  2. Open blood vessels with miracle beet juice. Beet juice has been used since the time of the ancient Romans to improve blood flow. And my own research at my clinic reveals these red roots work remarkably well — without side effects.

    A recent found that the dietary nitrate in beet juice reduces overstimulation of the sympathetic nervous system (SNS) that happens with heart disease.3 The nitrates in beet juice also help your blood vessels relax. This lets your blood flow easier and reduces strain on your heart.

    Try drinking just a small amount of beetroot juice or adding raw beets to your salad or smoothie. Or you can supplement with 1 gram of beet juice root powder once a day.
