I’m not denying that it “works”

September 2nd, 2014

Only that it works in cases where the underlying disease process is serious. I cannot prove anything about the ineffectiveness of EECP in clearing up my angina, because angina is a “subjective,” not an objective criterion. There are no tests that demonstrate the presence of angina; only the presence of heart disease.
There are people that suffer angina, with fairly mild heart conditions, and people that have no angina, and suddenly fall dead on the street, with massive heart attacks from completely blocked arteries. All I can tell you, is that I submitted to 55 EECP treatments, and didn’t experience the tiniest improvement in my angina. The pain was precisely as severe at the end of the treatments as it was at the beginning. This doesn’t mean there weren’t physical changes in my arteries, etc., but my angina remained unchanged.
What else do you expect me to say?

So, just because you “think” it didn’t work doesn’t mean it didn’t

I can show angiograms before and after, and I didn't think it worked for me either but the fact is it did. If you still have a problem, you should try "Granocyte" treatments with citimines to attract the stem cells where they need to be. If I were to do EECP again, I would insist that I get Granocyte with the therapy to augment the growth factors and stem cells available to the heart for revascularization Read More...

If EECP works, it works for “some” people

August 28th, 2014

Even the Kaiser hospitals, tried EECP for a while. They obtained some of the machines, presumably at great expense. They all but completely gave up on the program. I had 55, 1 hour treatments, at $100 per treatment, which also involved 50 miles of freeway drving and tremendous inconvenience, without the tiniest relief from my angina Read More...

I would strongly consider EECP for angina

and keep nitro tabs with you all the time, and when you start feeling bad, take one to stop it. It will stop the pain if you slow down and relax for just a couple of minutes. EECP is mostly painless and non invasive and consists of pressure cuffs which moves blood from the legs and buttocks to the heart during the resting phase of the heart beat Read More...

Actually there are many blood thinners. Garlic, dark red wine, of course my favorite for effect better than aspirin is turmeric and ginger, as mentioned Arginine, dark red grape juice is effective in taken in larger amounts than wine, vitamin E, magnesium, and evening primrose oil. "To illustrate that theory, Sinclair noted that red wines from regions with harsher growing conditions - Spain, Chile, Argentina and Australia - contain more resveratrol than those produced where grapes are not highly stressed or dehydrated Read More...

My last heart attack was on 16 March 2014.

July 11th, 2014

This was followed by an angiogram and the insertion of three stents. I am now back home and the nurses and support staff and British Heart Foundation have been wonderful. I am age 61, retired and was in reasonable health before the attack, playing golf 2/3 times a week and taking other regular exercise like walking and gardening Read More...

I went to USA for EECP to hopefully get some more circulation in the heart.

April 17th, 2012

The doctor tells me that maybe we should try to tailor some medications to suit my problem. Well that sounds fine and we start with a few new medications. One of the meds prescribed was a drug which they also use for cancer patients. It is used in Cancer patients to inhibit vessel growth. How did I know? I run a search on the net for information on the drug Read More...

Drug offers new option for angina treatment

August 27th, 2010

Ranolazine may be safe for people who can't take other chest pain medication People who have attacks of angina when they exercise may be helped by a new drug that works in a different way from other chest pain medication. Unlike other angina drugs, ranolazine (brand name Ranexa) does not slow the heart or lower blood pressure, says Dr Read More...
