This is an introduction to a series of articles on the heart. According to the Public Health Agency of Canada’s Economic Burden of Illness in Canada report, cardiovascular disease-related physician care, hospital care, and drugs is the largest burden on the health system. It is the same throughout the first world. Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide and significantly affects quality of life.
Currently, if you believe in modern medicine the heart has a very limited innate capacity for repair. However, even when on the verge of death, it is more than possible to pull a person back, not only to life but also to health if a physician knows what they are doing.
What we will cover in this Series
First, we will look at the field of cardiology, and how heart medicine is practiced today. Way too many people die from heart attacks and vascular disease and this is partially the fault of cardiologists who refuse to step out of the box their medical schools put them into. Cardiovascular disease is a leading cause of death throughout the world. The demand for new therapeutic interventions is increasing and in this series, we will find safe interventions that will improve the quality of life of patients with cardiovascular disease.
Then we will look at the heart from a physical point of view and see how the heart suffers because of dangerous diets and nutritional deficiencies including a lack of sun and Vitamin D, dangerous magnesium deficiencies and lack of iodine. Selenium is crucial when using iodine as it addresses the Hun Hordes of Mercury that are attacking heart tissues in massive amounts leading to cardiac arrest.
What is not known by many is that mercury is a deadly cardiac poison whose best antidote is selenium – since they bind together making it easier for the body to remove the selenium-mercury compound. Magnesium of course is the Ultimate Heart Medicine. Magnesium deficiency is correlated with most cardiovascular problems, including high blood pressure.
It is not an exaggeration to say that miracles in cardiac medicine can be achieved if the overwhelming preponderance of magnesium deficiency — in adults, adolescents and the very young — were addressed instead of ignored. However, cardiologists are enamored by statin drugs ability to reduce cholesterol levels. They call statins “miracle drugs,” claiming that statins cause no side effects thinking that everyone over age forty should be taking a statin.
Cardiologists have one in four Americans taking statin drugs. The pharmaceutical industry has convinced both patients and doctors that these drugs will prevent health problems down the road but nothing could be further from the truth.
The medical literature is filled with hundreds of studies of magnesium’s safety and beneficial effects whereas scientific studies are increasing showing statins to be a dangerously bad idea. Most people who die of cardiac arrest are actually dying of magnesium deficiencies and we will spend a chapter on this hidden reality.
Then we will study how the heart suffers from the intense toxicity that everybody has to deal with because we live in a toxic world that gets more toxic each year. Certain groups of corporations with government support have deliberately created a toxic hell on our planet. It is a special kind of hell that gets chemically and radioactively more toxic each year with the damage and danger expanding to hurt, debilitate and kill people in increasing numbers.
The physical heart can be treated with drugs and medicinals but natural non-toxic ones are best because it is through fulfillment of nutritional laws that we see the best results. All pharmaceuticals have their toxicity and that is the last thing our hearts need, which is further contamination and poisoning through increased toxic exposures.
Because the heart tissues tend to absorb a good percentage of the mercury entering the body cardiologists and heart patients alike need to understand the nightmare of mercury toxicity that is threatening our hearts with cardiac arrest. Human destiny is on a collision course with mercury, not carbon dioxide.
Tomorrow we will all wake up to a world with about twenty tons more mercury in the environment, hundreds of pounds of mercury will be put into people’s mouths by dentists, and tens of thousands of little children will receive vaccinations laced with mercury in the form of ethyl-mercury, super-charged with aluminum.
The inability of an individual to eliminate toxic metals, especially mercury, is directly related to heart and vascular disease. Dr. Rashid Buttar said, “Last time I looked in 2009 the search for the association between mercury and cardiovascular disease reveals 358 scientific papers exemplifying the relationship.”
Thus, we will introduce a new way of removing heavy metals from the heart and the rest of the body. When EDTA, a synthetic amino acid is combined with glutathione, and then taken in suppository form at night, when the body is in detox mode, offers efficient removal of the heavy metals that compromise both heart and the vascular system.
Later we will focus on stress and how that affects the heart and how it beats (Heart Rate Variability) from second to second. Americans and people around the world have become more stressed, agitated and anxious over the last 40 years— which in turn has increased physical stress, which itself in turn has led to an epidemic in stress-related disorders and diseases.
Daniel Keating, a professor of psychology and author of Born Anxious: The Lifelong Impact of Early Life Adversity – and How to Break the Cycle writes, “The first reason (for the increases in stress) is societal. As inequality rises, so do our fears about affording basic necessities — or if we’re relatively well off, about losing social standing and financial security for ourselves or our children. The second reason is more personal. Many more of us suffer from stress dysregulation than we did 40 years ago. Mainly through excess cortisol — a key stress hormone — this dysregulation makes the typical stress response too easy to trigger and too hard to turn off.”
From there we will take a journey into the mysteries of the heart, into our feelings and emotions and into the deepest corridors of our human vulnerabilities. Nothing affects the heart more than how we feel so we will be studying our feelings and emotions. The heart is a vast electromagnetic generator and the frequencies that are radiated out by the heart change dramatically depending on what emotional state a person is in.
No discussion on the heart could be complete without paying attention to nitric oxide. Nitric oxide is a key signalling molecule throughout the body. Produced by the endothelial cells lining the arteries, it penetrates the underlying smooth muscles and acts as a potent vasodilator that relaxes the arteries. Therefore, nitric oxide plays a critical role in blood pressure and overall circulation. It also keeps the endothelium in shape by curbing inflammation and oxidative stress.
Unfortunately, atherosclerosis, the underlying cause of heart disease and other vascular disorders, is characterized by endothelial dysfunction and a limited capacity to produce nitric oxide. It is a vicious cycle. Diseased arteries cannot generate enough protective nitric oxide, and low nitric oxide levels set the stage for further damage, hypertension, and increased risk of cardiac events.
This explains why nitroglycerin is such an effective therapy for angina. It triggers nitric oxide production, which dilates narrowed coronary arteries, improving circulation and delivering much-needed oxygen to the heart muscle.
Finally, but not least important is sex. Midlife sex can improve heart health, lower blood pressure and release the feel-good hormones endorphins, which act as a natural painkiller. In addition, a study by Dr. David Weeks, former head of old-age psychology at the Royal Edinburgh Hospital, found that middle-aged people who have regular sex look on average five to seven years younger than those who rarely have sex. Their hearts are happy.
