How to Have True Heart Health



okay okay welcome to our truth health Tuesdays tonight we're talking about heart attacks and we're going to lay down some stupid myths okay now what stuff is the myth is today it's part of the infrastructure it's kind of like vaccines it's part of the infrastructure there's a huge amount of money behind it now this is the theory and the theories is is simple easy to understand that you got a heart it requires blood cholesterol is really bad well naturally you got bad cholesterol and you got good cholesterol we got drugs for both of those okay and it's going to clog the arteries because your heart is too damn stupid to understand that it needs the arteries open and you're just defective maybe it's genes it has nothing to a gene expression okay it could be genetic okay the arteries get clogged but don't worry we can put a balloon in there and blow up the clogged we can put a wire cage in the artery to open it up we can give you drugs to thin the blood of course all of those have side effects and then at the worst we can go in and do bypasses where we're actually going to take a vein out of the leg split open the chest go around we're going to bypass the clog and then we're going to close up the chest and you'll be saved by modern medicine okay so your body is defective okay we're talking one in three Americans are going to have heart disease now if we did the same correlation with antelopes or buffalo or geese that 30 percent of them had heart problems and we're going in to do little bypasses on the geese and you know little angioplasty is a little stents you'd think that was stupid right I hope you would think that was stupid okay good so so this is the theory okay about clogs and arteries now the tough part is this he is huge in the infrastructure of our of our medical system now every hospital is a cardiac ward every hospital is going to be able to do a stress test or a chemical stress test they're going to be able to show dye into your heart and they're going to be able to diagnose a clog okay it's wrong okay their diagnostic procedures are ineffective and wrong so when we look at this it was questioned because it seems too simple but you got to figure out what weirdest cholesterol come from 80% is produced by your body does cholesterol clog arteries I don't know let's let's work with the medical thinking okay they say it does when they're doing a blood test or they draw on the blood out of the artery or the the vein okay well how come Martin cholesterol doesn't clog the veins if it's going to clog stuff wouldn't it clog the smaller artery so people would be walking around with like black fingers and toes right okay so that theory doesn't really hold water so when we start thinking back in the history books I start looking and I find this study out of Heidelberg Germany in the 70s and they did autopsies on people that died of heart attacks and they actually looked for blockages okay and they found only 20% had blockages sufficient to have caused a heart attack that means 80% didn't so you get something that's on a theory remember it's not fact that the arteries clogged it's not fact that you go in there with a balloon or a stent or bypass that you're helping the person that's not fact that's all theory but it's it's taught to you over and over and over and over again um who was it it was a brilliant order but he was insane he said if a lie is told long enough and loud enough people eventually believe it Hitler yeah okay now another study now this was done in 1974 Heidelberg 20 percent of the cases were found a study done in 2004 they found only 41 percent so less than half of the cases now remember this is the infrastructure of most hospitals this is what's what's running the the business okay so you don't want to really question this so I like this I had to put this is the title of the article the idiom the idiopathic genesis of coronary heart disease a higher echo higher reticle theory based on morphology so it's it's trying to find out the the problems the pathogenesis what actually started it and it's not it's not holding of the theory now this is I mean figure for about two decades now I've been looking at angiograms okay and what they'll do is they'll go and they'll their stick died and it'll illuminate you know you'll see the die go through in the heart and they'll take a picture of it and it never made sense to me when they said oh yeah see the clogged see the clogged and I look at something like this and I'd see a volume there a compression area and then the volume there now is blood static or does it flow so you're looking at a dynamic flowing structure so if you have a clog does it make sense that you should have the same volume on the other side of the clog or do you think there would be reduced volume on the other side of the clog now I'm just talking about common sense okay which is obviously missing okay in this type of procedure because when you look at it it doesn't make sense now through a more advanced arteriogram what they're seeing is that this clog is there's always a secondary circulation your body's smarter and and more adaptive than what we thought if an artery gets clogged the body will actually read grow it's called an angiogenesis work where you can actually regenerate new arteries okay to adapt to that clog so there's secondary and tertiary blood supply to the heart and and when you're looking at this there's a really good video called eating where medical doctor actually had a heart attack and founded as arteries were cluded he was unaware that the the real cause but he went on a plant-based diet and cleaned his arteries so what do we know then in the actual studies where they're opening up cadavers to see if the clogged artery is the problem we're talking in 74 they found 20% in 2004 they found 40% so that means 60% of the time there's something else if even that is the cause okay does that make sense so we have to look at something other than clogged arteries because obviously it doesn't make sense when you have a clog and you see the same volume on the other side okay now does anyone know how they how they would do a stress test on a person yet would treadmill treadmill yeah what if you have a knee problem they do what's called a chemical stress test and this is more popular now I have a patient who's actually going to have that done and I said I really don't recommend you do it because it's foolish so imagine you're sitting in a lazy boy recliner they give you a drug to stimulate your sympathetics you start your heart rate starts to go you're sitting in here and your arms are shaking this is a chemical stress test do you think that's going to give a normal or abnormal function of the heart not the medical world okay because they're just wanting to increase and see what kind of your body is going to adapt but this is a chemical stressor so it's completely abnormal then they inject the dye in it and then if they see any kind of a clog oh you're lucky you came in it's 50 70 80 90 percent of cluded but now let's let's go in and check it a little bit more you know this is acute unstable angina or chest pain so that means it just happened now they actually change the definition of heart attacks the see before the 1990s when catheterization and catheterization is actually putting a balloon okay and that's called angioplasty where the balloon goes on this little wire and then it inflates and it opens up forces the artery open there's another one called a stent where you get a wire cage in there and that forces the artery open and if those don't work then you you know the vein out of the leg and you bypass it well before 1990s and to be diagnosed with a heart attack you had to have three different criteria you had to have the typical heart complaints okay felt like an elephant was sitting on my chest I have massive chest pain I have chest pain jaw pain the left arm pain you had to have some of those type of symptoms okay then you had to go in and get a change in the electrocardiogram the ECG okay so chest pain some type of heart symptoms change in that and then they would look for certain blood values you'd look for because if you have a heart attack you're actually damaging the cells and it was kind of interesting too because I found out about this when I was hit by a car and I thought it was kind of cool because here I'm laying in the emergency room and they said yeah you bruised your liver and bruised your heart I said yeah the heart was in fourth grade no it's no cardiac humor okay no but but but but how do they find out I thought I thought oh my god these guys are like magical what they're doing is each organ system that you have has certain cells and those cells have certain enzymes that pertain to that organ and if you break open the cells you get certain readings in the bloodstream in that cool I thought was really cool the new definition because that those three criteria were obviously too complicated the new definitions for they threw out the alterations and the ECG and all the blood indicators were gone and so now was down to troponin okay this is one thing they're looking for so doc add a little chest pain okay last night oh let's check you are they going to look for the ECG no they're just going to look for one blood value troponin okay now so what this is called is an s NS te MI and stands for non ste is is part of the ECG that they would see in their MI stands for model Carly infarction or heart attack so we're looking for Anna STEMI okay now this is the thing that you'd see on a chart so this means that that the at a high level of troponin and some type of chest pain or something so this this means immediately it could be before the heart attacks developing so it gives us like approval to go in there and do some advanced studies no no no not Wow cut Ching okay because because now again are you asking about lifestyle factors are there anything else that could raise troponin levels so when you look at this what the the troponin is okay it's released into the bloodstream during heart attack okay so that is an indicator but it's also released if you have chest pain it's also released if you're drinking alcohol and you had excitement it's under normally daily activity it could just be released in there so there's not like a deep history of Wow were you watching the Super Bowl and it happened to be what it wasn't the Jets who is who's that team from north of Oregon Seattle no I'm kidding because my partner he likes Seattle he was depressed okay so his troponin levels were really high okay they were okay so so now but but remember you wiped out those three criteria is you got somebody with chest pain and high troponin levels that's it man what we got to do is do a stress test if you have any type of knee or foot or hip issues we're going to do a chemical stress test we're going to sit you in a chair we're going to put some chemicals in there to stimulate your heart to elevate it now when it's stimulated with these chemicals then we're going to put some dye in there then we're going to take a picture of it okay now if we see something okay then oh my gosh you're you you're so lucky you had one artery that was 80 90 percent whatever occluded now we got to do a stent and angioplasty and then we're going to put you on some blood thinners we're going to put you on some blood pressure drugs we're going to put you on this you were so lucky you made it in that football game could have killed you okay so so but but when you look at it it's it's all designed to promote the catheterization they're not going to look at any other factor okay and so what is this doing this is doing one in three so looked at left or look to the right in a standard population not this educated group okay one of you guys would have a heart problem okay and it'd be diagnosed this way so so when we look at it 2003 the Mayo Clinic did a study okay on the the two main catheterization procedures they remember you got an artery that showed not completely clear on their test which the test is bogus to begin with and so so you put a balloon in there and expand it up or you put a stent in there and force it open now the stent is a wire cage now what I want you to appreciate is the lining the artery the lumen as this is the the clogs or the the what they'll see I'm an angiogram isn't floating around on the surface it's actually underneath a layer of tissue called the endothelium so it's not a hunk waiting to break off so if you have an artery that's like this that has a small elevation in the lumina okay which is which is a rise in that from some type of tissue damage then you go in there and push this open with it with a wire cage it's going to put pressure on the walls does that make sense okay this is why I mean just just for fun if you're just sitting around type in stents and lawsuit okay and you're going to see a huge amount now they know that the stents are causing a tremendous amount of problem so what they're doing now is called Stand retrievals okay which is kind of neat because you're not going to have one area on one artery that's clogged does that make sense that you have miles and miles and miles of artery why would just the coronary arteries be affected no they're not you've got to look at the problem has systemic so when we look at this what they say the ballooning instance it does reduce complaints now there could be a placebo effect in there it could be because it's restoring the nerve supply to it or it could be because of all the other medic patience that they put on there to change the function of it and I'm going to show you why some of the medications will actually change the symptoms put you a greater risk of a heart attack but it does change the symptoms what they did find out is that it doesn't prevent heart attack it doesn't prolong life and it doesn't reduce the frequency of heart attacks or death bomber I thought that's what it was for okay and also they warn that flattening out the plaques and the vessel walls which makes sense because if you've got a plaque here and you're expanding this out you're pushing that down against it it could lead to bleeding that's why when they're doing the catheter procedures they got the crash cart they're small lumps can become detached and float in the bloodstream this is why they had a problem putting the wire cages and first then they medicated the stents and that was even worse because they would clump of blood vessel blood cells together and this would cause more strokes and everything else and and it it's weird would we be doing this on an antelope okay remember we're in animal species we don't have a problem there's something wrong this one New England Journal of Medicine stents cause higher death rates and you're starting to think we'll wait a second we we found out that the diagnostic procedures of injecting died and the heart identifies possibly a heart clog but now we know there's always secondary blood supply so putting a wire cage in the heart to force that open it causes higher death rates and you start looking at this way to say it do you see the problem with the logic here if you're forcing that artery open and it really is the problem you should be showing lower death rates I'm just I'm just connecting the dots here right it shouldn't be that complicated okay the higher mortality rate and decrease in blood flow makes it necessary for additional research to be conducted before routine sent stenting can be recommended as a standard of care no kidding but is it the standard of care now yeah it is okay the study offer also offers no evidence that routine stent placement after a heart attack will reduce future complications such as stroke or another heart attack so the procedures are not working now here's another one the Journal of the American College of Cardiology 2003 a seven-year long study now what they did is they checked people that had stents evaluation of use of catheterization and chronic stages of heart disease okay now precisely shows the uselessness and potential damage they can be caused by the intervention and chronic heart disease although catheterizations and stents have been claimed to be life-saving measures they do not prevent heart attacks or save lives this intervention is accompanied by a great placebo effect so they're saying oh my gosh if you're getting any results it more likely isn't from the wire cage we just shoved in your artery in your heart it may be because we told you you're going to get better okay a five-year one again out of the Journal of the American College of Cardiology now this one here is called a TS invasive vers conservative treatment in unstable coronary syndromes okay I know okay I was reading okay when you're reading a journal article you always get the first page and what it has is the hypothesis the outcomes the methods okay and the conclusions and I'm reading this to my partners and I'm saying guys this ain't in English okay because I got a I got a you know translate it into the average person that doesn't know what because how it's actually worded is bizarre so what I did is I shortened the conclusions to just get the highlights we cannot demonstrate a long-term benefit of the early invasive strategy and reducing death or myocardial and infection infarction invasive verse conservative treatment and unstable coronary syndromes and so they're saying is we're trying to do it we we have this we're doing these procedures and we're not showing a benefit now if anyone's gone to a cardiologist and anyone had an angiogram and anyone's been diagnosed with a clogged artery and told to get a bypass or a stent or a balloon are they aware of these studies so what's causing the chest pain what's causing the heart attacks what's causing the heart disease because because obviously it's not the clogged arteries again is it does that make sense inquiring minds want to know well here's another study it shows that heart bypasses and I love this because it's literally your heart is defective now I look at human beings that their body repairs okay their body regenerates tissue your self repairing self-healing mechanism I'm going to I mean that's that's not some weirdo hippy thing that's an actual anatomical fact so if there's a part of you that's broken doesn't it mean that maybe there's nerve supply or blood supply or something that you're missing some type of deficiency or toxicity and so when we try and second-guess your body well we're going to take a vein out of your leg we're going to go in here we're going to wrap around the clog yeah okay so you know there's a lot more arteries than just the coronary arteries maybe there might be more clogged arteries but we're not going to check for those we're just going to wrap it around the heart so we're not going to look at genetic expression we're not going to look at systemic inflammatory problems we're not going to look at what is actually causing that we're not going to look at at the environmental factors that genetically modified foods the toxic diet that the lack of hydration the clumping together of the Bloods the nervous system the sympathetic or parasitic we're not going to look at any other causes okay it's just this basic simple antiquated idea that it's a clogged artery now I want I want to go back to this this we known this since the 70s that 20% of the people with heart attacks had sufficient enough clogged but they didn't show it and in 2004 there was 10 or 11 years ago only 41% I mean keep holding this so what's the cause of the heart attacks why are we getting so many do you want to know okay I know it took me all that time to say it's not a clogged artery okay guess what comments I'm going to get yo seduced a clogged artery my cardiologist said so okay let's look at the nerves because do do heart attacks up and slow or fast yes do clogged arteries happen slower fast just checking okay so what we're looking at it's kind of cool if you had those like this gauge okay the common-sense meter in this group damn baby okay so so when you're looking at this okay let's look at the autonomic nervous system you got two types of nervous system you got sympathetic and parasympathetic sympathetics fight-or-flight this is initiated under short bursts okay like anybody have a bed magnet at home oh come on this morning you were in bed it was cold outside you had the blanket on and it's like I don't want to get up okay that's what I mean by bed magnets okay in order to get out of bed you had to have the sympathetic nervous system okay so you don't need to be chased by a tiger it's just like oh my word I got to get up okay the parasympathetic is also called the rest digest in repair mode now both of these has strengths they have power to them okay so it's not like one's on a one's off there's an energy level to them to allow them to adapt to environmental stimulus okay now it exposed hand just like this okay I'm going to blow on it did you feel that okay now I just put out a force of energy that wasn't enough to cause her to feel it we could try one more time okay good I put out enough force that was able so so what I want that was a demonstration to show you that you can have a stimulus but it not be forceful enough so what I'm going to propose to you is that the cause of heart attacks is an imbalance in the system and a decrease parasympathetic nerve supply now let's do a little an atom in physiology I know I know I don't this is so cool because you're going to see light bulbs come on okay let's look at and this is out this is actually out of the heart rate variability in patients with diabetes mellitus ischemic heart disease and congestive heart failure that's the title of the article anybody want to read it I know okay it's really fun actually it's the journal electric cardio now let's look at the two different neurotransmitters or how let's look at how they communicate okay the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous system are the electrical chemical or both say both okay good you're right they are okay now they also have a thing in the adrenal gland remember we always call it drina's the pharmacy of the body well the parasympathetic has a part of the adrenals and the sympathetic has a part of the adrenals the parasympathetic makes three main chemicals okay to communicate their parasympathetic activity remember they're the rest digesting repair modes okay so if you have that the parasympathetic is going to send it now you got the parasympathetic is also called cranial sacral so you've got stimulate leads or sensors and the nerves actually originate in the skull in the brainstem and the sacrum that's the parasympathetic and so it's called so called the cranial sacral the sympathetic is also called the thoracolumbar so you actually have nerve sensors and the sympathetic nerve supply it with some of the nervous system is in that area okay so these areas are the actual areas of the parasympathetic and actual areas of the sympathetic I could take you through a human dissection and I can actually show it to you I could have you hold this the parasympathetic nerves I could have you hold the brainstem in a cadaver so this isn't any esoteric thing now these have actual connections to the adrenals and that is the pharmacy of the body the parasympathetics makes acetic : nitrous oxide and cyclic guanosine monophosphate or cGMP ACH and mo now that's the main neurotransmitters that it makes in order to communicate okay in its chemical processes to communicate its message when we look at the sympathetic this is in the middle of the adrenals okay and it produces mainly adrenaline okay and there's there's also some other ones Nora John on a couple of others but that's mainly its its communication pathway now under the sympathetic it also is the for a fight-or-flight so do you think you need more energy if you're running away from something or if you're getting preparing for battle so it also does what's called glycolysis where breaks glycogen down the glucose so it actually helps increase the blood glucose in the body okay now I know this is this gets kind of complicated but when you look at it we're going to look at the adrenals connection to the sympathetic and parasympathetic okay and I know this is this is like oh god I had Anatomy please don't make it any more complicated just understand that the parasympathetic nervous system which is in the brainstem and the sacrum and the sympathetic is in the ribcage area in the top of the lumbar they both communicate to the adrenals which is the pharmacy of the body the parasympathetic makes three different things nitrous oxide acetic : & cGMP and the sympathetic makes it causes glycogen to be broken out of a shion's of blood sugar and it also causes adrenaline to be formed okay oh okay now heart rate variability this is one of the tests we do at there our office okay what this does is it checks the balance of the nervous systems not just the balance but also the strength of them so when we're going back on that demonstration you do have sympathetic and parasympathetic but how effective are they at responding to the environment okay because if your body is not going to respond under stress you're going to die if your body is not going to respond when you need to be resting and digesting and repairing your body is going to be breaking down before it builds up does that make sense thanks doc for helping me with that I was trying to explain it and I'm beating my desk and I go oh my gosh yeah that helped a lot okay so heart rate variability studies we're talking people with ischemic heart disease they have decreased para simple activity that means their parasympathetic tivity is decreased and this is something measurable predictable and accurate heart attacks do they happen slower fast clogs do they have been slower fast slow okay good so we're knowing now that the studies since the 70s have shown that it's not clogged arteries that's causing it now we know that we have studies that show that it's an imbalance in the nervous system and specifically it's actually a decrease in the parasympathetic nervous system now this is a theory it's not going to be brought out in the public until the grassroots changes because if this was true where would you go to get your nervous system checked not to neurologists you go to a corrective chiropractor okay and so this means every cardiologist on the planet will have the equipment we have let's check your variations in heart rate they'll check the QRS interval for five minutes and they'll tell you yeah you're sympathetic dominant your parasympathetic dominant or by god you're right on we're not skilled in correcting this you need to go directly to the chiropractor get your nervous system checked come back we'll change the parasympathetic nervous system okay the worst ischemia and this is lack of oxygen to the heart remember ischemia comes from low supply low parasympathetic activity not loss of blood in you know most of the cases because that's what we're finding on autopsy so it turns out that the low parasympathetic activity is actually causing lack of blood flow to the heart not the clog eighty percent of ischemic events are preceded by a drastic reduction in parasympathetic activity so this means most heart attacks 80% are preceded by lower parasympathetic activity I just didn't this is all build up for what we got coming up okay so that's that's the anatomy and physiology portion the parasympathetic nerves to the heart we've got a sensor in the middle of the neck that's controlled by glossopharyngeal nerve now we talked about this before you've got a heart here it sends blood supply up it splits the carotid splits in the internal and external at this Junction here you've got two sensors that one that senses carbon oxide one that senses blood pressure so carbon dioxide levels are up that cranial nerve nine okay or the parasympathetic nerve that governs that is going to send a signal down to the heart so wow so does that mean that even though the parasympathetic nerves is are up here it has a nerve that comes down here that controls the heart it does it does this is totally cool now you've got another one cranial nerve 10 it's called the vagus nerve no not baby okay it's V a G us okay okay sorry there's some people that are going be oh yeah baby I want that room okay it leads the brainstem and surrounds the esophagus the food tube and it's so cool when you see it because it goes on the front and back side of the esophagus and then it branches off and it supplies the entire gastrointestinal tract supplies the heart now what's interesting when you look at this persistent decrease in sympathetic leads to heart attacks decrease in the parasympathetic nervous system also corresponds with acetylcholine nitrous oxide and cGMP and this is how to give the Journal of electro cardiology and you start thinking wait a second so these guys are checking heart attacks and they're finding an absolute alteration in the nerve supply to the heart specifically decrease in parasympathetic activity does that make sense so far okay good so why do women have less heart attacks on average because they have a high vagal activity they have a high cranial nerve 10 activity why we don't know possibly because they have to regenerate menses every 28 days which is the which is the build up mechanism maybe because they can form a human okay there's something there's some difference there may be the you know estrogen and progesterone has some type of effect but when you look at it women and men men generally die around 74 with a heart disease women go to 80 when we're talking about heart disease under 75 about 41 percent of males 21 percent of female so we're talking nearly a doubling of the rates and so could it'd be could it be that since women have a high vagal activity or high cranial nerve 10 activity that this is having a protective mechanism or because they have a higher parasympathetic activity we don't know so now what type of activities would actually lower parasympathetic activity so what causes heart attacks an alteration of the autonomic nervous system specifically lowered parasympathetic activity okay can you imagine that torturous hell of listening to my radio program this morning when I was saying like this it was driving me crazy because I do I wanted to explain it but I needed pictures okay seriously okay now the stuff that lowers parasympathetic activity high blood pressure now why would hypertension why would high blood pressure lower parasympathetic what causes an elevation of blood pressure the fighter flight or the rest and digest fight-or-flight so if you have a clogged artery the body is going to have to elevate blood pressure in order to get by that if you have any stress physical chemical or emotional stress the sympathetics are going to be fired so high blood pressure is not a disease it's an adaptation using the sympathetic so the sympathetics are firing off what slow parasympathetics what's the cause of heart attacks lowered parasympathetic activity so that makes sense smoking smoking causes constriction of the arteries but it also stimulates what the fight-or-flight okay so diabetes now let me see diabetes which of those nervous systems the parasympathetic or sympathetic had glycolysis which one elevated the blood sugar which one broke glycogen down to glucose sympathetics now the sympathetics are activated what happens to the parasympathetics it drops down oh my gosh so that makes sense why these activities would cause a lowering of the parasympathetic is that why when they talk about risk factors the high blood pressure smoking diabetes and stress so that it's not the clogged arteries because high blood pressure under the clogged arteries okay smoking might damage arteries okay and we know diabetes doesn't clog arteries but it does thicken up the blood so so it can you see the correlation here oh my gosh I think we're onto something so when we look at this this is actually what a cadaver sample looks like where the junction where that parasympathetic is so now thinking of that so now we've got a sensor that controls the heart that's here we've got a sensor the controls the heart that here does that mean that perhaps if you have an alteration and neck position that set is going to pull the spinal cord impossibly alter parasympathetic activity boy will it ever ok so now let's look at the other thing remember the three chemicals that the parasympathetic nervous system made nitric oxide nos II to call an ACH okay and cGMP I'm not going to do the whole cgmp is a big word okay nitrates stimulate nitric oxide production so this means that the parasympathetic is not going to call down to the adrenals if it's available does that make sense so you're going to decrease parasympathetic nerve supply by having more nitric oxide present okay now what's in nitrates yes they do use it in certain medications but it's also unprocessed foods our heart attacks higher in people that eat more processed foods absolutely there but not because it does damage arteries but could it be from the nitrates elevating the nitric oxide Wow okay now aspirin and statin drugs stimulate production of nitric oxide and CETA : Wow so does that mean if somebody was prescribed an aspirin a day okay which is completely insane I'm going to show you the studies but if they're also taking a drug to lower cholesterol that's at that's actually leading because there's always a rebound effect to lower parasympathetic activity does that mean and this is huge because this is our handout oh whoops I thought they were going to be steeping on this one here it says over a million people a year in the u.s. die of heart attacks are they dying in the US because they don't get enough drugs or surgery I hope people on YouTube can hear there's an audience that's giggling okay no because that's foolish in this kind do they need more drugs and more surgery faster are we do we need more pharmaceutical outlets okay no no that it we're barking up the wrong tree there so what happens is if you take a drug that forces the the production of the neurotransmitters used by the parasympathetic nervous system when those things go out of your system it takes a while for the parasympathetic to kick up since those neurotransmitters aren't utilized that's going to simulate a lower parasympathetic activity does that make sense so does that mean that that nitrates aspirin statin drugs beta blockers that all of those are going to lower sympathetic or parasympathetic activity and what's the cause of heart attacks lower parasympathetic activity okay here's the one of the definitive Studies on aspirin okay so if somebody says yeah take an aspirin a day for a healthy heart well you can say definitively if you if you take an aspirin you're per hundred thousand people this means a hundred thousand people take an aspirin a day you're going to save about 33 lives okay that means nine hundred or ninety nine thousand nine hundred and seventy some okay 64 or sixty seven are going to have no effect whatsoever however out of those you're going to have a 37% or about a hundred people will die of gastrointestinal bleeding and about ten people will die have a hemorrhagic stroke so we're going to lose about a hundred and ten people and or save about thirty five anyone good at math okay now aspirin is supposed to be what a blood thicken our blood center okay water is a good blood thinner okay vegetable juice is a good blood thinner and those don't have an increased risk of stroke or gastrointestinal bleeding so so are there better ways to help your blood yes or yes okay good oh wait wait here I got ignition I let this is one of the guys that did the study clear that there is an incredibly fine balance between the possible benefits and risk of intervention we need to be extremely careful about over promoting aspirin and eventual now first without having first fully understood the negative side effects no kidding that should be emblazoned every medical doctor should have a tattoo of that on their forearm before they reach for the prescription pad I don't think that's I mean if they're going to force people to get a flu shot I think we should force people to get a tattoo okay now this is a patient that came in a couple of weeks ago 37 year old gal what you're seeing here this is her heart rate variability study she came in with carpal tunnel syndrome numbness in her hands now we know that's a double crush injury she's a nurse why do you want to take a picture of my neck well that's where the nerves that supply the hand come out of okay and so sure enough her parasympathetic activity that's on the right hand side is incredibly low she's a heart attack waiting to happen we go take a look she's got massive Ford head carriage absolutely no curve in the neck that's pulling the spinal cord down altering our parasympathetic activity and what's neat is she's a nurse she gets the big picture she I mean this right here this is how you gauge your risk at 37 she's probably not going to have a heart attack but if this remains there at 40 at 50 at 60 okay what's going to happen I mean it's it's guaranteed you know now when we look at this this patient this is a patient currently and she's frustrated okay that's that's not a real name but this right here you're looking at a massive structural deviation so that means she's probably in a sympathetic dominant state for years that means her parasympathetic is down these wires in the front means that she did have a stress test they diagnosed a clogged artery so they split her sternum opened it up took a vein out of her leg went around heart closed the chest back up wired it back up woke her up okay and what what are the studies say about a bypass surgery like that does it prolong life no does it prevent heart attacks no okay and the intervention is actually does more harm luckily she came in because my gosh that's an alteration in the nervous system and that's for sure an alteration and the curves and this has been a problem there for years now what's neat is we're going to be adjusting her we're going to restore the nerve supply how fast you think she's going to get a response to having decreased chest pain and decreased the the stress because she doesn't want to go in and do pop or chest again it's it's amazing because it's almost immediate that people start to notice that they can move their neck better they can breathe better they can sleep better they can go to the restroom better all that is is we're just balancing out the nervous system I mean just just balance it oh by the way in order for to be diagnosed with this because she does have a knee issue before they did the open-heart surgery and I think it was done like about eight years ago so this issue issues in the mid-60s they put her in a chair injected her with chemicals her body was shaking then they injected dye and then they found out that she might have had a clogged artery and using that old theory they did the bypass and everything else okay I mean this is 2015 it's time that we say the emperor has no clothes okay it really is it really is I mean the American Heart Association if you want the worst advice ever okay I mean the worst advice they're saying liquid vegetable oils like canola safflower oil sunflower oil soybean oil and olive oil these advice egg whites instead of our egg whites instead of eggs which doesn't make any sense whatsoever the corn safflower oil they have a 77 to 160 to one ratio a Omega 3 to 6 ratios disease starts at eight to one okay so they're recommending extreme sorry they're recommending heart attack containing foods okay to predict it's just the the disconnect here is so far and so great that the salt how many cardiologists are going to say salt should be reduced well it turns out okay and this is this is again that there's some brilliant empties out there this was August 2014 time to shake the sodium guidelines see the American Heart Association is saying reduce salt reduce salt reduce salt what they're seeing now in assisted living centers is a massive heart attack problem from hyponatremia this means they're not getting enough salt okay no seriously okay but wait a second okay the red line is where they say you should have that's that's where the salt is it turns out the more salt you get the more salt you get you're going up this line the less heart attack and deaths you have so it turns out that taking into about four times the amount of salt that the American Heart Association recommends you have about half of the death rate okay now these statistics are known okay now I love this one then and this is dr. T'Pol's message the American Heart Association however isn't backing off from the one point five a sodium guideline but I think there's a big lesson to be learned here about guidelines without adequate evidence I like this guy they can do harm hopefully this lesson will prove to be impactful because that certainly has not been the case to date has in cholesterol guidelines okay blood pressure guidelines PSA or prostate specific antigen guidelines mammography guidelines and a very long list of poorly conceived and non anchored guidelines that means not anchored in scientific basis okay isn't it about time to recognize that there shouldn't be rules for populations I love this guy okay some people are exquisitely sensitive a salt intake while others are remarkably resistant average is over wow oh my gosh common sense this is the future I mean you guys should have goose bumps now I mean people are actually thinking about what's going on when we look at this high blood pressure is not a disease it's an adaptation to toxicity when you see what healthy blood looks like when you see what unhealthy blood looks like our diet I mean we should actually be storming not the pharmaceutical industry not not the CVS pharmacies or in we should be going in to the supermarkets and taking the toxic oils off the shelf because we know it the polyunsaturated fats are killing our population it's causing less oxygen to get there if you have unhealthy blood the blood pressure and the stress rates are going to be increase if the stress rates increase that stimulates the sympathetic activity what's the cause of heart attacks lower parasympathetic activity so can you see that these clear oils the canola oil the polyunsaturated fats this the safflower oil I mean it's it's it's nuts we just got to stop it non-steroidal anti-inflammatories I caused 20% of all heart failures and the cause of high blood pressure now this is the Anna loved internal medicine how many doctors out there are saying oh honey you got joint pain here take this ibuprofen and I'm going wait a second you're given her a chemical that can damage your heart it's destroying her joint cartilage and it's to make her comfortable temporarily okay read the Hippocratic oath and fire yourself okay remember the doctors work for you if your doctor is recommending a toxic therapy okay that destroys your body fire him okay if he's in your group and he's a nice person then educate him given the guidelines on the heart okay given the guidelines the new guidelines on the parasympathetic it's only been around since the 70s okay give him that okay help them because they're in groups that are not helping us and I tell patients all the time what kills more people medical doctors are guns it but but then we got these brilliant guys like dr. Topol we've got this brilliant doc here these guys get the big picture they realize that the body smart can you see that so it's that it's the system that we got to change because there are brilliant Doc's that get the big picture there really are I mean sudden death after card radiofrequency ablation okay if does does anyone not know what ablation is okay okay imagine you got a heart and you think an area the heart isn't functioning right it's like contracting at a different rate wait wait a second what controls cardiac contraction is it oh it's the nervous system okay well here's a thought let's take some wires in there and burn those cells that's called ablation so we're actually going to kill portions of the heart okay but don't worry we'll have a crash cart available this one says out of the Journal of the American College of Cardiology that sudden death is likely or possible related to car a catheter ablation occurred in 702 percent but the risk of sudden death is highest within two days after the procedure okay yeah we're going to second-guess the intelligence of the heart we're just going to burn part of it you'll be just fine this is honest-to-goodness what you need to protect yourself from a heart attack you need to get your nervous system checked honest-to-goodness it's that simple you need to get x-rays and a heart rate variability test okay we do a little bit more advanced but can you see that the nervous system is the source yes or yes okay good you have to get regular exercise this is just a move I mean I've got patients that are quadriplegics we've got patients missing limbs okay we've got patients that that are Lou Gehrig's that are that are wheelchair-bound they're exercising they may only be doing leg swings they may only have their their spouse moving their legs like this but by gosh any type of movement is going to stimulate the nervous system and get more sensory input into the brain proper nutrition this means whatever the American Heart Association do the opposite okay you want some more bad advice for the American diabetic Association okay they're still recommending aspartame for God's sake okay so so you know if man makes it you don't eat it okay if Monde Satan is involved in it you don't buy it okay sufficient risk this means deep sleep every night and honest-to-goodness if you can't sleep what do you got you got an imbalance of the nervous system you're probably sympathetics are firing off you're ready for a heart attack and it takes about five days to solve the worst insomnia ever okay there's a brilliant study out of Glasgow Scotland and check our tape on that and then prayer meditation every study when you're in prayer and meditation what do you think happens to the parasympathetic nervous system elevates and that's tissue repair every every study if you're praying for yourself it increases every study I've seen that if a group are praying for somebody else their tissue increases Wow but that would be a cool study okay oh in here too as weird as the sounds if you're taking a blood thinner the doctors that are prescribing blood thinners will say goodness gracious stay away from dark green leafy vegetables okay I know it sounds insane but they're going to say that the dark green leafy vegetables that vitamin K and vitamin K is involved in blood clotting okay it has nothing blood clots in in in response to tissue damage it doesn't clot in the arteries it clumps in the arteries so this is a way to explain that vitamin K and green vegetables won't clot the blood in my arteries okay now back away from that kale there's there should be a cardiac warning on there okay that's it and a stupid to me as it does there okay good good yes so this is a way to communicate to the doctors that are giving blood thinners so if you happen to have a stent or or an angioplasty or a bypass surgery and they tell you to stay away from green vegetables give this to them okay so that we can start eating healthy stuff now all of this all of this research okay is available an owners – guide please look into it please share it with your local cardiologist it's going to hurt it's going to hurt their head because because you're absolutely changing the paradigm it's like talking vaccinations to people that think it's a belief you know it's the savior of our world okay so just talk to them slow use actual science have them give you data on on their point of view and let's do it with science let's not like beat each other up so use this and save lives and oh and then Heidi is in the back this is one of the tests that we do we do a heart rate variability test okay we also do surface electromyography we also do a rolling thermal scan we also do digital x-rays with those that I found is the most thorough assessment of the nervous system a chiropractor is an herb doctor I'm not a muscle doctor I'm not a bone doctor I'm a nerve specialist okay and to get checked and this doesn't matter if you're from England Texas Arizona Oregon Australia okay so so but that's this group okay so thank you very much okay now you

    Pardon me? "The doctors work for you?" I think it's pretty well known that the doctors work for the pharmaceutical industry – ever since the med. schools got huge donations from that industry and forced their way onto the medical school boards. You don't follow our guidelines, you don't get our donations. Doctors who step outside the box, suffer severe consequences.
    Slowly, I hope this is changing. I see signs of change because people are becoming educated in the area and demanding change.

    I have heard Dr. Bergman ask why does blood clot in the arteries and not the veins in multiple videos, but I never hear an answer to his own question.

    I was told to stay away from green leafy vegetables because I was taking a blood thinner this was before I even watched this video. I told my doctor I don't want to take blood thinner because spinach does the job of blood thinning naturally. I started to each a cup of spinach a day, and I noticed the improvements in my blood and overall health.

    My friend had a medicated stent and then had a stroke 6 hours later while he was still in the hospital. then his carotoid (neck) went from 80 % to 95% and he needed a scary operation to replace with a pig artery .Does Diabetes damage the arteries ( veins and eyes) because the sugar is like microscopic shards and that is why you can have a stroke as it will tear at the clot especially with high blood pressure

    so a friend of mine just got out of hospital, congestive heart failure.He's overweight, takes statins, blood pressure meds, not sure what else. Heavy drinker as well. He's one of those people that think since he's taking pills he can abuse his body, like the pill will fix it, So I want to make him & his family a meal. Now he's telling me it has to be "heart healthy" but in my good conscience I can't justify feeding him margarine, lowfat cheese, sugar etc.I don't want to make him sicker, Should I go with my gut? or boil a chicken breast?

    Soooooooooo – if one of my cardiac arteries IS blocked – blood doesn't flow. If blood doesn't flow to muscle it dies, correct? It has to be fixed one way or another. My cardiologist fixed my immediate problem caused by my genetics (family history) and poor diet (eating out, no exercise). Then he recommended a change in lifestyle (diet and exercise) PLUS medications PLUS meditation and prayer. What is wrong with that? If I have a blocked coronary artery I'm not going to a chiropractor for a neck adjustment. BTW – my right coronary artery is 100% occluded and my cardiologist did NOT recommend angioplasty or stenting because of collateral artery development. He recommended compliance with medications and diet and exercise. What am I missing here? Seems like we need both. Ideally we should all eat and conduct ourselves in a healthy manner. But if we don't or don't have the proper genetics, when the blockage occurs we need stenting and / or bypass to keep us alive. Right?

    Thanks for your truthful videos. The regular mainstream Drs.& Clinics are there for the K ching factor. They order all these tests, preform all these procedures, and prescribe all these dangerous drugs, because they cant give up the rich lifestyle they have been accustom too living. The fine homes cars ,ect ect. In the meantime who suffers? All the patients that go to these materialistic quacks! Your one in a million who tells it like it really is! And about salt, why do cows get salt blocks, because we all need salt, sodium to live. Even animals need a certain amount of salt! It's the oils and all the chemicals in the food that's the problem ! Our God And prayer is the answer, to not only our medical problems but the answer to all our problems.
