Abnormal Heart Rhythms

submitted by: admin on 02/18/2015
Abnormal heart rhythms may arise because peri-infarction tissues are very irritable and electrically unstable. These rhythms can compromise cardiac output and be lethal. It is very important to take your medicines if you have a problem with abnormal heart rhythms because they can result in a reduction in cardiac output that can be critical. Dr. Saputo recommends...

Actos and Bladder Cancer

submitted by: admin on 05/07/2015
Both Germany and France have taken Actos off the market because of an increased risk of getting bladder cancer. The US is taking no action. Global sales of Actos are in the vicinity of $5 billion annually. All three "glitazone" drugs for type 2 diabetes have a poor track record. Rezulin was taken off the market more than a decade ago because it caused...

Addiction Programs Don't Work with Richard Gracer, MD

submitted by: admin on 05/08/2015
Many addiction programs exaggerate their success. In general only about 15% of people in these programs get better. Usually there is a problem that is urgent that leads to getting into a program. Underlying problems must be addressed. For the first time, a doctor has developed a treatment program especially for "hidden" addicts-people whose lives...

Angina

submitted by: admin on 02/18/2015
Angina is the pain caused by insufficient blood flow to an area of the heart. While this is not lethal in itself, it can be very painful and disabling, and is also a warning that there is at least one blood vessel that is severely blocked and in danger of closing off entirely. A myocardial infarction may be impending. Dr. Saputo recommends the following...

Atrial Fibrillation

submitted by: admin on 02/19/2015
  Atrial fibrillation occurs when the top part of the heart, called the atria, beats at around 300 beats per minute and leads to ineffective contraction of the atria. This predisposes to clots forming in the left atrium that can break off and travel to the brain and block circulation and result in strokes. Anticoagulation is the treatment of choice but...

Atrial Fibrillation Overview

submitted by: admin on 02/18/2015
  The physiology of this very common rhythm problem is reviewed with attention to stroke and lowered cardiac output. The causes of atrial fibrillation, its symptoms, diagnostics, and treatment are reviewed. Fish oil may be preventative for the development of atrial fibrillation but it does little once it has been established to convert atrial fibrillation...

Avandia, Heart Attacks, and Bone Fractures

submitted by: admin on 09/19/2013
There is an increased risk for hypertension, heart attacks, congestive heart failure, and bone fractures associated with the use of Avandia. It inhibits the formation of new bone and increases of bone breakdown.        

Broken Heart Syndrome

submitted by: admin on 09/19/2013
People do die of a "broken" heart. It is called stress cardiomyopathy. Stress hormone levels of cortisol, adrenalin, and nor-adrenalin spike after an emotional shock and if you don't have the reserves acute heart failure can follow. If you survive, this is reversible.      

Can Coronary Arteriograms Cause Strokes?

submitted by: admin on 02/11/2014
A study published in the January 2014 issue of the Journal of Invasive Cardiology showed that small cerebral microemboli (blood clots) occur regularly during coronary arteriograms. While this leads to micro-strokes, they are usually occult and are not associated with obvious deficits. Nonetheless, they occur as a routine and do cause small areas of damage...

Can You Die of a Broken Heart? (Audio)

submitted by: admin on 09/19/2013
Shocking events can lead to abrupt very high stress hormones levels which can stun the heart and lead to heart failure, angina, and/or rhythm disturbances that act like a heart attack. In this "broken heart syndrome" there is no underlying heart damage. If people survive this their heart returns to normal.        

Can You Die of a Broken Heart? Video

submitted by: admin on 07/24/2024
  The risk of a heart attack increases by 21 times during the first 24 hours after losingn a loved one. It is not uncommon to hear of one spouse dying and the other following in just a short time. The risk of heart attack remained 8 times above normal for a week and was still elevated to some extent after a month. The bereavement and grief associated...

Chondroitin Plus Glucosamine are Equal to Celebrex

submitted by: admin on 05/26/2016
We all have pain from time to time and we want relief as soon as possible. The problem is that relieving pain with pharmaceutical drugs has side effects that are not minor, especially in the case of NSAIDs such as Advil, Aleve, Motrin, and Celebrex. There are about 30,000 deaths annually in the US from NSAIDs  and more than 300,000 admissions to hospitals...

Co-Enzyme Q10, Statins, Muscle Pain, and the Heart

submitted by: admin on 09/19/2013
  Statins block both cholesterol and co-enzyme Q10 production. We need co-Q10 to make energy and when levels are low it can lead to congestive heart failure. It can also lead to muscle pains, the release of myoglobin and renal insufficiency.          

Coenzyme Q10 Improves Hypertension and Congestive Heart Failure

submitted by: admin on 09/19/2013
Recent data has documented once again that coenzyme Q10 improves hypertension and can prevent congestive heart failure. It can improve cardiac output by as much as 39% and significantly increases exercise capacity of patients with all levels of congestive heart failure. It has many other functions such as increasing HDL cholesterol, immunity, and arterial elasticity...

Congestive Heart Failure

submitted by: admin on 02/19/2015
Congestive heart failure develops if there is sufficient death of heart muscle (myocardial infarction) and subsequent inability of the remaining normal heart tissue to pump enough blood to the body. Tissues that die obviously cannot contract, but there are also areas around the infarction, called the peri-infacrtion area, that are in shock and may not be...

Congestive Heart Failure: Nutritional Support

submitted by: admin on 02/20/2015
  Congestive heart failure is the result of sufficient energy. Ankle swelling is an early sign of CHF. Acutely drugs are paramount and work very well. ATP production is dramatically low. A number of nutrients help our mitochondria produce energy better. Statins have the potential to lower coenzyme Q10 and create energy deficient states.                    

Creating Vibrant Health with Hyla Cass, MD

submitted by: admin on 09/19/2013
  Chronic stress can make us dependent on a chronic adrenalin response. Change your diet to high quality carbohydrates, proteins and fats. Eventually this leads to adrenal failure and the need to rebuild the adrenal glands. Many important nutrients become deficient and we cannot make our neurotransmitters and we crash.

Does Salt Cause Heart Attacks?

submitted by: admin on 09/20/2013
Researchers published in the Cochrane Library that there is no evidence that moderate cuts in salt intake reduce the risk of a heart attack or dying prematurely. Salt does lower blood pressure mildly. Yet salt is essential for survival. The difference between table, sea, and Himalayian salt are reviewed. The effect of salt intake in congestive heart failure and...

Exercise Helps Congestive Heart Failure

submitted by: admin on 02/19/2015
  Moderate exercise helps ease depression in patients with chronic congestive heart failure (CHF) and is also associated with a small reduction in death and hospitalizations. Even the failing heart can be strengthened by exercise as measured by peak oxygen consumption and longer duration of exercise that is done carefully under the supervision of a qualified...
