The Real Cause of Most (85%) Heart Attacks and Strokes
From our book Bypassing Bypass, published in 2002
 

[Editor's Note: you would not believe how much money has been spent on the information we are supplying you. Every health newsletter has published a special report on this subject; mailings go out hinting at the secret cause of most heart attacks and strokes. Books have been written on the subject. And for you, we now give it to you absolutely free. Still, please don't let that stop you from making a donation. If everyone who reads this article were to toss us just one dollar, we would never have to sell another book, and could send them out to everyone free. Think about it, please.]

Dr Valentin Fuster, MD, PhD (director of cardiovascular research at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York and previous head of the American Heart Association) published the results of a forty-year study (from 1959 to 1999) in a book called Understanding Vulnerable Plaque. The rest of us first heard of this study in an article by Ron Winslow first published in the Wall Street Journal. It was such an amazing story that it had four headlines:

Coronary Culprit
Heart-Disease Sleuths Identify Prime Suspect: Inflammation of Artery
The Body’s Efforts to Repair Irritated Lining of Vessel Can Backfire Disastrously
Plaques Burst Like Popcorn

The article starts off describing the previous (popular) line of thought concerning the mechanism of heart attacks. First there is the accumulation of plaque until a blockage is created. Then a clot forms and gets caught in the plaque, which cuts off the blood to the heart and bingo, heart stops: standard cardiac arrest caused by coronary thrombosis (blood clot in the arteries that feed the heart).

“But the popular view is wrong,” writes Ron Winslow. We’ve been wrong a long, long time. If you take a look at your Encarta Encyclopedia, you’ll see this “popular view.” If you go today to the American Heart Association’s web site, you’ll still see this same view. Billions of dollars are spent yearly on medical procedures supporting this “popular view.”

Even Newsweek eventually picked up the story quoting Dr Fuster: “inflammation in the circulating blood may play an important role in triggering heart attacks by activating blood clotting mechanisms.” Fuster even has the integrity to state that the role of physicians should be to care for the blood and not go into the plumbing business (performing expensive “roto-rooter” services on our blood vessels).

If you go to Dr Garry Gordon’s web site, www.gordonresearch.com, you’ll see that Dr Gordon was pushing this line of thought years before it was released in the Wall Street Journal. You’ll see that for the past ten years Dr Garry Gordon has not sent one of his heart disease patients in for bypass surgery. You’ll see that he has written all sorts of papers on Bypassing Bypass Surgery:

Based on my 40 years clinical experience during the last 10 years of which I did not have to send a single patient for bypass or angioplasty surgery no matter how advanced their blockages were, I now believe that most degenerative and cardiovascular diseases can be improved and often nearly totally reversed.

Dr Garry Gordon was kind enough to help us with this edition. He is a co-founder of the American College for the Advancement of Medicine. He is founder and president of the International College of Advanced Longevity and a board member of the International Oxidative Medicine Association. He is a medical doctor, a doctor of osteopathy, and a homeopathic physician. He practices orthomolecular and functional medicine and is a full-time consultant for many nutritional supplement companies, one being Longevity Plus where his office is located. He is responsible for the majority of their formulations.

Dr Gordon lectures around the world on cardiovascular wellness: “The End of Bypass Surgery is in Sight.”

During his radiology residency at Mount Zion hospital in San Francisco, he suffered from terrible angina attacks. He watched carefully the cardiology practice at this hospital, knowing that he would soon be a patient. He discovered he didn’t like the odds. For every two cardiac patients who walked through the entrance, only one walked out the exit after treatment.

He learned right away the limits of modern diagnostics. No matter which instrument we use to view the arteries, we can never see them in three dimensions. And when we find a completely blocked artery, doctors want to jump right in and start cracking open the patient’s chest. They jump in despite all the evidence that collateralization has taken place. When an artery collateralizes, it branches off and forms a new artery to deliver the blood the blocked artery can no longer deliver.

Dr Gordon long ago suspected inflammations in the blood had a connection to heart attacks and strokes. He has now completely eliminated the problem using Wobenzym® from Germany (along with nutrition and chelation therapy). From Dr Gordon’s web site:

Wobenzym® is an enzyme preparation initially developed in Germany in the 1960’s by the Medical Enzyme Research Foundation.

Wobenzym® is backed by millions of dollars of research. This research has been primarily done in Europe, there are FDA approved studies under way in the United States on Osteo-Arthritis and Multiple Myeloma.

Studies in Europe have documented an average lowering of C-reactive protein levels (a marker of chronic infection in the body) of 30%.

New research, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, has documented that higher levels of C-reactive protein have up to 6 times the incidence of death from heart attack and stroke as lower levels. This obviously means that long-term use of Wobenzym® can be life saving. In addition it has the well deserved reputation of being the leading natural safe alternative for anti-inflammatory drugs such Ibuprofen.

Note: Recently Wobenzym®, though advertised on the web, could not be found in America because many of its ingredients came from animal sources, and in Europe there had been that outbreak of Mad Cow disease. This situation, combined with a number of agreements being contested locked the entire supply of Wobenzym® in a warehouse. That is all cleared up now, and along with Wobenzym’s® return to the shelves, the vegetarian form, Rutozym™ has hit the market.

Ron Wilson points out in his article that it is our own body’s immune system that becomes a turncoat and works against our longevity by bursting holes in our arteries. Trying to attack the intruders causing the infections, our own immune system contributes to the problem.

Infections in our blood are not new. They’ve been uncovered in a good many books, such as the Root Canal Cover-up, published in 1992 that focused on the low-grade infections caused by root canals, low grade infections that can get into the blood stream. However, this root canal business goes back even further when you realize that Weston Price, working with 60 other scientists in the 1920’s and 1930’s, did the original research on the root canal problem and predicted that a host of systemic diseases—including heart disease—can be caused by these low grade inflammations as well as by gum disease.

The process, the actual development of Vulnerable Plaque, its coming to a head and exploding, and the subsequent clotting that can result in one huge clot racing through your bloodstream to get caught in your brain or heart is as interesting as any detective novel.

[http://www.gordonresearch.com/Blood%20%20Vessel.htm]

As you will learn later under the heading of Arteriosclerosis (or hardening of the arteries), a good portion of the assault on our arteries, as described by Doctors Linus Pauling and Matthias Rath, is caused by lack of proper nutrition. Now we see another cause, which is the attack on the vascular wall by germs.  According to the article, the repeated attacks and repairs cause this build-up of plaque: “Researchers believe that coronary-artery disease is an inflammatory process, characterized by a decades-long cycle of irritation, injury, healing and reinjury to the inside of the blood vessels.”

Sadly, the article hangs onto old prejudices: “The new research doesn’t detract from well-known risk

factors. On the contrary, it bolsters arguments for controlling blood pressure and cholesterol, avoiding smoking and adopting a healthier lifestyle.”

We agree about the smoking and the lifestyle changes, but this cholesterol stuff is outdated and, at best, a harmful misconception. Cholesterol is a secondary factor only. It is not cholesterol that causes cardiovascular disease, but cardiovascular disease that causes your cholesterol levels to rise.

We will later on talk about the build up of plaque on the arterial walls, but first let us take a look at Ron Wilson’s article and his take on this:

The picture that emerges from their labs as well as others is of a disease that begins as early as adolescence with an initial irritation to the artery’s inner wall, called the endothelium. This sets off alarms summoning the immune system and the broader inflammatory response, dispatching cellular soldiers to fight the invaders and fix the damage.

If the injury is a one-time event, this is no problem. The immune-system players retreat, and the inflammatory response that accompanied their efforts recedes as well. But over decades, with persistent irritation such as from high blood cholesterol or exposure to cigarette smoke, this becomes chronic, and the body’s repair machinery begins to run amok.

“It’s a smoldering process,” says Dr Libby. As it proceeds, “the normal defense mechanisms get turned against you.” For instance, an irritated cell in the lining produces molecules that act like flypaper to attract the beneficial repair crews. But over time, these stuck molecules become the seedbed for eventual cholesterol deposits called plaques.

The only problem in the above quotation is this strange idea that cholesterol, a very needed component to our basic biology, is called an irritant. Rancid, oxidized cholesterol is an irritant that can be avoided by the proper use of antioxidants.

At this point we need Dr Gordon’s input, as the article doesn’t seem to completely tell the story.

Dr Gordon points out that the inflammations in the blood (we all have them or will have them; it’s just a matter of time) are caused by microbes (such as mycoplasma, HHV-6, chlamydia, CMV, and a few others, possibly even stealth viruses—viruses that have gone undetected by modern science but cause low grade inflammations in the blood). He also reminds us that not all inflammations are caused by infections. He points out that poor metabolism (not burning cleanly) and a lot of free radicals can cause inflammations. The infections in the blood stream are caused by tiny microbes that get into the artery and are attacked by the immune system. This causes inflammation. The resulting scar tissue is first covered up by lp(a)—first discovered by Pauling and Rath—and then by cholesterol, and finally covered with a fibrous cap (from the fibrinogen in the blood, the clotting mechanism). This entire process of inflammation and attack keeps the blood hypercoagulable, as fibrin is needed to patch the wounds. Interestingly enough, the microorganisms become hidden from the immune system by the fibrin coating.

Keep in mind that, normally, a healthy immune system keeps these microbes in check. But when you are stressed, overtired, and undernourished, with your immune system deactivated, these critters can get out of hand.

One of the problems leading up to vulnerable plaque is caused by macrophages (or “big eaters”). The job of macrophages is to eat things that are causing problems: microbes and excess cholesterol. They get so full of cholesterol that they can no longer function and become, what scientists call, foam cells. The processes of patching the arteries hides the foam cells beneath the fibrous cap and the macrophages die adding their contents to what Ron Wilson calls a “cauldron of plaque bubbling under the fibrous cap.”

Dr Garry Gordon calls it a boil. And like any boil, it’s eventually going to burst.

Now let’s step back for a second. Science is developing more and more sophisticated instruments to peer into the human body. Recently on the radio we’ve heard advertisements about this new machine (in a “heart” hospital in Minnetonka) that can peer into all your clogged arteries and tell you precisely the percentage of clog. But do not think for a minute that it can tell you that you have vulnerable plaque. It cannot tell you that you have a boil about to burst. They would have to scan your entire body, inch by inch to find this boil.

So, POW! the boil explodes. Do these tissues and fibrin and gunk cause a clot? No. They are cleaned up by the immune system. But a clot is formed. It forms when passing blood cells spot the epithelial tissues laid bare by the boil’s explosion. They begin to clot and form a patch. Blood clots to correct a problem, but as you will see, the clot becomes the problem.

Because of the hypercoagulability of our blood (due to all the infections, our diet, our heavy metals, etc., as noted earlier) our blood is quick to clot. It wants to clot. It creates an extra large, humongous clot to patch the hole. Because of its ungainly size, it can break loose in the current of the blood flow. This is the clot that is going to kill you. It is going to kill people with no visible signs of heart disease. It is going to kill people who seem to be perfectly healthy. It is going to kill people with cholesterol levels that are supposedly normal. It is going to kill a million people this year, and it is 100% preventable.

Oh the medical profession is jumping on this one right now. They want you to take an aspirin a day. They want you to continue your cholesterol lowering drugs, the statins. Why? Because they’re also anti-inflammatory. They want you to take Coumadin to thin your blood, the new COX-2 inhibitors to attack the inflammation, or NSAIDS to thin your blood. (As we've reported at this web site, the COX-2 inhibitor, Vioxx does lower inflammation, and at the same time attacks the arteries.)

Statins have side effects. Reducing your cholesterol levels does not extend your life. Anti-inflammatories can. Despite the advertising that tells us how aspirin saves lives, aspirin and NSAIDS kill at least 20,000 people a year. [www.gordonresearch.com/articles_acam/acam_response_cranton_rebuttal_5-15-03.html  They either bleed to death or die from hemorrhagic strokes. The total number of deaths due to bleeding caused by the use of NSAIDS is over 30,000 a year. Coumadin? From the 2001 Encarta Encyclopedia we see:

Possible side effects of [Coumadin] include hemorrhage (severe bleeding), chest pain, joint pain, headache, difficulty breathing, difficulty swallowing, or swelling. Other side effects may include diarrhea, nausea, fever, hair loss, skin inflammation, discolored (purplish) toes, or gangrene. Excessive bleeding from a nosebleed, cut, puncture, or unusual menstrual flow should be checked by a doctor.

Just recently, medical journals are pointing out that patients on coumadin for a long period of time increase their chances of hemorrhagic strokes.

No wonder it’s the main ingredient in rat poison.

According to Dr Gordon, most of the blood in blood banks is used to replace the blood lost by people on conventional blood thinners. Does this tell you anything?

We dispute the practice of using aspirin as a blood thinner throughout our articles on cardiovascular disease, but right here we will give you Dr Val Fuster’s take on aspirin (and other anticoagulants) because aspirin (and the others) affect only one pathway to coagulation:

Aspirin interferes with only one of the three pathways of platelet activation - the one dependent on thromboxane A. The other two pathways — one dependent on ADP and collagen and the other on thrombin — remain unaffected, as does the coagulation system. On the other hand, current anticoagulant agents interfere only partially with the coagulation system and do not affect platelet activation. It is not surprising, therefore, that aspirin or anticoagulants cannot completely prevent coronary thrombotic events, although the relative antithrombotic effectiveness of both types of antithrombotic agents is clinically similar.

Treatment Begins After Testing

I’m sure you’ve all seen the television commercial in which a “doctor” recommends some antacid product to someone with heartburn. Prescribing without testing is malpractice. In this case, the heartburn, the physician did not even know whether the heartburn was caused by too much stomach acid or too little stomach acid. Simple logic tells us that to fix a problem, we must know the problem. Therefore to fix whatever is causing your hypercoagulability means you must have the proper testing, and the following is a list of tests about which you might wish to learn more.

  • Serum Ferritin (iron) levels: high iron is almost as dangerous as high lead levels in your blood. People who give blood have fewer heart attacks than those who don’t. If we just lowered our iron levels we could cut the number of diabetes cases in America by one third.

  • lp(a) test and oxidized cholesterol antibody test: adhesion molecules such as VCAM and ICAM that measure how sticky things are at a molecular level (implicated in the impaired circulation of the tiny vessels [capillaries]) eventually leading to heart attacks, strokes, and loss of vision.

  • Platelet aggregation, fibrinogen, lipid peroxides, and other markers of free radical damage and monitor antibody levels to various infections implicated in atherosclerosis: CMV(cytomegalorvirus), Herpes, etc.

  • Fasting insulin levels, homocysteine levels, triglycerides/HDL ratio, Redox, pH, Resistance, APO E-2, 3, or 4, blood type testing, and food allergy tests.

  • Fatty acid analysis (on red blood cell membranes), and amino acid testing on urine and blood.

  • And most important of all, the C-reactive protein test and an IL-6 test, as we recently discovered and published in the article: Chronic Inflammation.

Valentin Fuster, M.D., Ph.D., in an article entitled, “Heartbeat, A Heart Health Update” (http://www.gordonresearch.com/fuster.htm) writes “During the inflammatory process, a substance—C-reactive protein—is produced in the blood. By measuring blood levels of C-reactive protein, researchers now have an important tool for studying the role of inflammation in heart attacks and strokes, since the amount of inflammation can be measured by the C-reactive protein.”

If C-reactive protein is found in your blood, you are 8 times (800%) more likely to die from a heart attack or stroke. No other test even comes close to this indicator. Dr Gordon told us, “There has never been a lipid disorder or cholesterol value that was associated with 8 times the risk of death.”

UPDATE 2016: We have since learned that testing for CRP is not enough. What you need is a battery of tests that will establish your "inflammation index." Click on that link to learn about these tests in our paper, "Chronic Inflammation."

So it is the care and cleaning of our blood that medicine must focus on, as Dr Val Fuster and Dr Garry Gordon both tell us, and not by playing plumbers trying to repair our pipes. We now have many, many supplements that can help us get away from blood thinners whose side effects all too often include death.

Dr Gordon does concede that we might have to put a patient on Heparin and antibiotics at first just to get a handle on the coagulation problem. Thin the blood and attack the infections. But after this, let’s use supplements that are natural and needed and we can slowly wean the patient off of the other drugs.

Vitamin C, a weak acid, bonds with iron. All weak acids are natural chelators in that they either pull heavy metals from the body or they bond with them and keep them from doing damage. We now know that viruses and bacteria congregate in organs that are high in heavy metals. Pulling these metals from the body is just one step in helping to clear up the viruses. Dr Gordon takes a daily chelation formula because he says our environment, “has exceeded the body’s ability to handle [heavy metals].”

Next we have the blood thinners we’ve mentioned above: garlic, cayenne, vitamin E, and magnesium.

Wobenzym® and Rutozym™ are made to digest any proteins in the blood (such as C-reactive protein). To begin with, you might need to take twelve to sixteen capsules of Wobmenzym® (or Rutozym™) per day to get your levels down. Keep in mind, you must test, treat, retest, and modify your treatment. This is not a hit or miss practice. FYI, or For Your Inflammation, from Dr Gordon’s research, complements the Wobenzym® nicely.

However, elevated C-reactive protein, according to Dr Gordon, “is not merely the chlamydia growing in our blood vessels; it is the overall impact of all the things going wrong with our metabolism and the entire infection load we’re handling.” He goes on to talk about the antibiotics in our fruits and vegetables and livestock (75% of antibiotics used go into our livestock). With all these antibiotics in our system he directed us to Inuflora, just one of the supplements he takes daily. It is a sugar that we cannot use, but the flora in our digestive tract can use it, and need it. It is also a fiber; a fiber with an interesting side effect: it also too helps to lower C-reactive protein.

Dr Garry Gordon’s plan is based upon years of research and treatment, and we want to pass on his own words.

First, on hypercoagulability:

I believe that with our improved understanding regarding the need for effective control of hypercoagulability in virtually all ill patients, it may be beneficial to routinely add a more therapeutic level of intravenous or subcutaneous Heparin, along with more aggressive therapeutic levels of intravenous Vitamin C, in our efforts to manage this newly identified epidemic of hypercoaguability/infection related problems. 4,000 to 6,000 units of Heparin, based on weight, administered subcutaneously b.i.d. are safe, for a therapeutic trial of several weeks, without doing specialized coagulation studies in patients without a history of serious bleeding disorder (personal communication with David Berg, May 3, 2000). Longer term use of oral enzymes or daily heparin injections to decrease fibrinogen concentrations and soluble fibrin monomers appear to greatly facilitate the treatment of any chronic infectious process.

[David] Berg [of Hemex labs in Phoenix, AZ] has shown that a coagulation panel that is more sensitive than hitherto available is capable of distinguishing healthy from unhealthy subjects with over 95% accuracy. In fact, hypercoagulability is associated with a large number of chronic diseases.

Since EDTA prevents clotting in blood collection tubes used daily, I believe more sensitive tests may show some subtle reduction of hypercoagulability. Possibly lowering the number of adhesion molecules, or soluble fibrin monomers, may be one of its subtler, but life saving benefits. The combination of a polluted environment, stressful life style and chronic low-grade infection leading to hypercoagulability, initially called the AntiPhospholipid antibody syndrome, has now more recently been renamed “immune system activation of coagulation” (ISAC). It appears to be surprisingly common and those at risk need long-term effective but safe lifelong anticoagulation treatment. Aspirin alone is too weak and too dangerous to handle this epidemic of hypercoagulability. It has also recently been reported to be too dangerous for men with hypertension to take on a regular basis. Effective aspirin substitutes include pancreatic enzymes (Wobenzym®) and properly stabilized bromelain supplements, preferably used in combination with garlic, Ginkgo, and salmon oil. A polysaccharide/ chelation based product, containing EDTA, also acts as an effective aspirin substitute and affordably helps to meet this nearly universal need.

The polysaccharide he prefers is a mucopolysaccharide from red seaweed (found in Gordon’s Essential Daily Defense™ formula). This by itself has a good number of studies done showing it to be very significant in reversing heart disease.

Furthermore, he adds that to fight infections in the blood, his own daily regimen consists of Wobenzym® and RM-10™, a new product he developed in addition to his earlier products, such as IMMUNI-T®. RM-10™ is a proprietary mushroom blend that boosts interferon and interleukin levels, and kick-starts Natural Killer Cell activity. Next he uses 8 or 9 grams of Beyond C®, and Essential Daily Defense™, his oral chelation formula (all of which we will talk about later on).

On a more natural note, you might wish to try willow bark: Willow bark has been referred to as Nature’s Aspirin. It is a natural anti-inflammatory that has been shown to decrease the incidence of stroke and heart attack. Keep this in mind when battling infections in the blood too, for it is a wonderful tea and can be used daily.

In Summation

We’ve just handed you a lot of information, information your physician might or might not know. So we’re going to summarize all you have to know about the real cause of 85% of Strokes and Heart Attacks, and then give you the best solutions currently accepted to prevent them. Do not forget to check out the solutions we've added in our article Chronic Inflammation.

Infections/inflammation in the blood are the beginning of the problem. Fibrin is central to inflammatory conditions. Our diets and lifestyles also add to the hypercoagulable condition of our blood. Repeated activation of our immune response to the inflammation and pollution (heavy metals) produces antibodies and circulating immune complexes that only add to the viscosity of our blood. Fibrin, normally a substance that tries to save our lives, starts to coat the infection in the vessel wall and ends up coating the microbes and immune complexes. This creates a boil on our blood vessel that eventually explodes uncovering the epithelial tissue. Red blood cells are signaled to patch up this hole. The hypercoagulable state caused by all this fibrin creates a much bigger clot than is needed. The clot can be dislodged by over-exertion, over-excitement, or just getting up in the morning, depending on the size of this clot, its adhesion strength, and the current in the vessel. Once dislodged, it travels to the brain for a stroke or to the heart for a heart attack.

Aspirin and Coumadin affect one facet of the clotting process only. However, time and again we see that nutritional protocols are not only more effective in the long run but much safer. Dr Valls-Serra treated 245 patients with systemic enzymes and witnessed substantially better therapeutic outcome than with conventional anticoagulants and vasoactive substances. You can call Longevity Plus (800-580-7587) and request a copy of the article: Aspirin vs. Enzymes, by Dr Garry Gordon.

From Dr Garry Gordon’s web site (www.gordonresearch.com), we get these Darkfield Microscopy Images:

The blood of a patient with cardiovascular disease shows signs of severe clotting, indicated by the gray mass.

After three months supplementation to make up for nutritional deficiencies, the blood is free of clots.

The following is just a part of Dr Garry Gordon’s protocol (which he himself uses daily—we will list his entire daily protocol following this section). He has not sent one patient in for bypass surgery in over ten years. This works for him, and you might want to see if it works for you, but as always, get yourself a professional health practitioner to help you along your way. Get tested, treated, and retested. All of the following products are made by Longevity Plus, 800-580-7587.

However, before you go there, you might also want to check out an article that took years of research to write: Chronic Inflammation. You'll find even more info on inflammation and even more supplements (with links) that can help.

Beyond C is a form of vitamin C that allows you to take a large dosage without the usual stomach problems. It also contains: MSM (methylsulfonomethane) for dramatic immune enhancing and anti-inflammatory activities, TMG (Trimethylglycine) to help keep homocysteine levels (associated with heart attack, cancer and aging) at safe levels, Ribose to benefit the heart, and Biopterine to aid in nutrient uptake.

Beyond Chelation is an entire regimen in itself. Each canister of Beyond Chelation contains 30 packets of nutritive supplements designed for continued long-term physical, mental, and cardiovascular support. One packet per day is the suggested dose for preventive maintenance, and two packets daily are recommended for therapeutic usage. Individual packets contain 9 pills: 3 Beyond Longevity multiple vitamin tablets, 3 Beyond Garlic capsules, 1 Phosphatidyl Ginkgo Boost capsule, and 2 Primrose Gold/Omega-3 soft gels.

There are over 60 ingredients in this package, including the following:

ALPHA LIPOIC ACID: An antioxidant that facilitates the metabolism of Vitamin C, E and glutathione.

EPA (Eicosapentaenoic Acid): Essential fatty acids like those naturally occurring in some fish. “The benefits of these can be best summarized by pointing out that the mere ingestion of salmon twice a week has been shown to reduce the overall mortality from heart attacks by more than 40%,” says Dr Gordon. “The deficiency in our diet of this essential nutrient is widely recognized, and its use in preventing thrombosis or hypercoagulable states in the bloodstream is well documented.”

GLA (Gamma-Linolenic Acid): Essential fatty acids which also help prevent thrombosis and the tendency toward excessive blood clotting implicated in heart disease.

OMEGA 3, 6 AND 9: More than 25% of the adult American population has low levels of omega 3s.

GRAPE SEED EXTRACT: Grape seed contains OPCs (oligomeric phenolic compounds), which enhance anti-oxidant activity and are also anti-inflammatory and anti-viral. They are believed to be more powerful than Vitamin C, E, or beta-carotene and are also very potent chelating agents.

GINKGO BILOBA: Reduces the cholesterol concentration present in the arterial wall and protects against all nerve degenerative diseases, among other beneficial effects.

ORGANIC GARLIC: Reduces total cholesterol as well as LDL cholesterol, lowers blood pressure and is anti-viral.

RED YEAST (mucopolysaccharides): Lipid-lowering; reduces total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol and triglycerides.

CoQ10, also known as Ubiquinone, is present in every cell of the body and is responsible for cellular respiration. It has been shown to improve cardiac function, reduce episodes of angina, decrease arrhythmias, improve cardiac strength and contraction, slow the heart rate, lower blood pressure and, most important, decrease the oxygen demand on the heart. It's most potent from is called Ubiquinol.

Inuflora is a proprietary blend of inulins isolated from the Jerusalem artichoke. It has been formulated not only to improve digestive health but also to restore floral balance in the intestine. Inuline is a soluble fiber that cannot be digested by the human body. It is absorbed intact and travels to the colon as fibrous material where it serves as a selective food source for beneficial bacteria. Inuflora, like most fiber, also helps to thin the blood. It also reduces C-reactive protein.

Essential Daily Defense™ is a unique, proprietary formula based on a combination of 30 years of Dr Gordon’s work in chelation and Dr Lester Morrison’s arteriosclerosis research. This formula is designed to enhance excretion of all heavy metals while concurrently providing anti-thrombotic activity due to the unique synergy of the sulfated polysaccharide (red algae/carrageenan) with EDTA. For serious mercury, lead and other heavy metal detoxification, from 9 to 18 capsules a day is recommended. (NOTE: ESSENTIAL DAILY DEFENSE™ MUST ALWAYS BE TAKEN WITH A BROAD SPECTRUM MULTIVITAMIN.)

Wobenzym® is a combination of systemic enzymes and Rutin (a bioflavonoid that supports blood vessels and binds with excess iron) that has been tested for fifty years at a cost of millions of dollars. It reduces C-reactive protein and thins the blood and has not contributed to one known death. Additionally, used with Beyond Chelation, it has been shown to:

  • Substantially reduce the incidence of fatal blood clots now known to be induced by the sudden breakdown of vulnerable plaque.

  • Increase feelings of well being because of its antioxidant and cholesterol lowering effects.

  • Allow fewer heart attacks or strokes because of anti-thrombotic, anti-spasmodic, and anti-arrhythmic abilities.

  • Promote longevity due to the control of many of the molecular bases of aging.

  • If used with Beyond Chelation™ (or another form of chelation therapy), improve results related to arterial blockages caused by Herpes, CMV, and other molecular based causes.

  • Offer an opportunity for continuing long-term survival and long-term improvement in health.

  • Improve the functioning of all body organs/systems.

  • Provide protection from environmental toxins in the air, water and food.

  • Be beneficial when used to treat Autoimmune, Rheumatic and Cardiovascular Diseases, Inflammations, Injuries, Infections, Tumor Illnesses, Osteo and Rheumatoid Arthritis, Joint and Muscle Pain, Herpes and Other Viral Infections, Cancer and Hepatitis C, Recurrent Miscarriages, and many other Degenerative Diseases.

Nitric Oxide is out of place here because it needs its own focus. Nitric Oxide “linked to hemoglobin allows blood vessels to expand or contract, depending on how much of the molecule is present.” Additionally, it “dilates blood vessels and thus allows oxygen to better reach tissues.” [Scientific America, Nov 2001]

How can we get Nitric Oxide? This nutrient is so important, that we've written all about it, and here are the articles referencing NO:

Special Bonus

As promised, we’ll list for you Dr Garry Gordon’s personal protocol that he uses daily. Dr Gordon’s career began in research and eventually he started up a private practice, but because of disabling angina he had to leave it. He went on to heal himself, initiated or has been a part of some 40 professional organizations, and today is a full time consultant to vitamin and supplement companies. His protocol is almost entirely from products he’s helped to developed over the years and it is constantly changing, so keep in mind that what is laid out here is probably changing as we write these words. Nearly all of these products can be purchased from Longevity Plus (see above).
