Cardiovascular diseases, heart attack, high blood pressure, stroke
and peripheral vascular disease are some of the most dangerous and
lethal problems seen in medical practice. In medical practice many
people are seen with history of cardiovascular problems which range from
minor early changes in blood pressure to extremes of survival from heart
attack, stroke or blood clots in the legs and or in the lungs.
The greatest majority of people we see are early in the process of
cardiovascular disease. They may only suffer from elevated cholesterol
or triglycerides levels, mild elevation of blood pressure and they may
have no outward symptoms of cardiovascular disease, yet. These early
situations are often either ignored or they are rejected with the person
telling them self and other their doctor that they have no problems so
they really need no treatment. When medication is prescribed it may or
may not be taken. The patient may promise them self that they will start
a diet, watch what they eat, exercise and then not quite get around to
Generally these people have good intentions but they are either
unaware, unwilling to acknowledge or do not recognize that as time
passes these problems if not corrected will potentially become lethal.
As one patient put it after his first heart attack, "I never thought it
would happen to me. It was always happening to the other guy. Now I am
the other guy. Thank God, I survived, what can I do not to help my
The time to start is not! If your cholesterol is up, if you heave
elevated blood pressure, if you have a family history of heart disease,

exercise, stress reduction and appropriate supplements may be all that

pressure, any abnormal lab testing or strong evidence of early changes

find that he will prescribe medications, one or more to "correct" your

Chelation is a proven method of reversing and undoing the deposition
of atherosclerotic plaque both in the heart, the head and the entire
vascular system. Chelation used a protein substance EDTA to bind calcium
and remove it from the hardened plaque which is narrowing the vessels of
the heart, the brain, kidneys, the rest of the central and peripheral
vascular system. As plaque is removed the vessels naturally open and
blood once again flows normally. This treatment is commonly used for
people who have had one or more heart attacks or strokes, but also for
individuals who have chest pain, abnormal kidney function. Chelation is
also used in individuals who have had cardiac surgery where stints have
been placed, bypass or where plaque has been removed but has a high
likelihood or reoccurring. It is also used by people who simply want to
prevent these problems from happening to them.
Plaquex is a natural substance, which is part of every living cell
(plant cell, animal cell and human cell). Its exact chemical name is
phosphatidylcholine. Plaques is used to treat atherosclerosis. Its most
important effect is its remarkable ability to reduce plaque depositions
in the arterial walls. It also lowers cholesterol and homocysteine
levels. This is especially useful for people who have suffered heart
attack or who are at high risk of heart trauma. Plaquex reduces angina
pain and frequency of these episodes, it lowers LDL-cholesterol,
increases HDL-cholesterol, improves ability to exercise and function
normally, it improves mental function and has a positive affect on
sexual potency. Plaquex is often used in conjunction with chelation
It has been said that "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of
cure", no where does this make more sense than with preventing
cardiovascular disease. If you have any cardiovascular disease or better
still do not want to have any cardiovascular disease, a good long-term
relationship with competent and caring physician can greatly help you.
