  • October 2005: The World Health Organization has published a report forcasting that four hundred million will die prematurely in the next ten years from chronic illnesses such as heart disease and diabetes. This will outpace every other epidemic and natural disaster in the history of humanity.
  • 1 out of 8 live births has congenital heart disease. Heart disease is a staggering financial burden with estimates as high as 2 billion dollars a day in the next couple of years. 1999 researchers found 60% of 5-10 year olds have at least one risk factor for heart disease including: High cholesterol, high blood pressure or elevated insulin levels. Heart disease kills more women over the age of 60 than any other disease. At a half a million deaths, it dwarfs breast cancer, which will claim about 43,000 lives this year. Specific diseases caused by atherosclerosis include coronary artery disease, angina pectoris, cerebral vascular disease, thrombotic stroke, transient ischemic attacks, diabetic vascular complications, and pulmonary embolisms. Conventional medicine’s approach is drano or rotter rooter. African Americans dark skin prevent the absorption of vitamin D which is essential for preventing heart failure (supplement with 800-1000 IUs of vitamin D daily.
  • Cardiovascular Disease –(Cardio) Disease of the Heart and (Vascular) Blood Vessels – 73 million, 946,000 deaths, Cost $351.8 Billion. 1,100,000 have Cardiomyfarction (heart attack) 52 million have High Blood Pressure – 45,000deaths, Cost $50 Billion Having HBP (150/90) increases risk of dying from heart attack 3-fold, heart failure 4-fold, stroke 7-fold 5 million have Congenital Heart Disease with 500,000 new cases each year 13 million have Coronary Heart Disease (CAD) - 515,000 deaths, cost $130 Billion. 6.2 million suffer from Angina pain Every 90 seconds someone has a stroke and every 180 seconds someone dies from a stroke. 160,000 die from a stroke every year another 750,000 Americans suffer a Symptomatic Stroke each year (expected to double in the next 5 years) – another 22 million suffer Silent Strokes 17 million have Diabetes – 70,000 deaths – Another 17 million Pre-Diabetic – 70% of diabetics die of a heart attack or stroke 3 million Americans have Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) 750,000 Americans have critical limb ischemia, resulting in 200,000 amputations each year . Those that can get an balloon, stent or bypass, 30% fail within a year and 40% die within 4 years due to a heart attack or stroke. 30 million men admit to impotence and is now being considered as a major marker for heart disease as both are a problem with blood flow.
  • Sudden Cardiac Death is not a “heart attack” caused by clogged arteries, but by ventricular fibrillation which is an electrical problem in which the cardiac conduction system that generates the impulses regulating the heart suddenly outputs rapid or chaotic electrical impulses, or both. The heart ceases it rhythmic contractions, the brain is starved of oxygen and the victim looses consciousness within seconds. It kills its victims within minutes. 95% die before reaching the hospital and 70% die at home. A person who has suffered a heart attack is at greater risk of SCD because the scar tissue left from the heart attack prevents the heart to pump blood efficiently which disrupts the heart’s to electrical conduction. A person at risk can be tested with a echocardiogram to check the ejection fraction (amount of blood pumped by the heart with each beat). Every 60 seconds survival rate reduces 10% Defibrillators are becoming as common place as fire extinguishers
  • In 2002 960,000 Americans died from diseases of the heart and for 400,000 people each year the first sign is the last, well for the 560,000 that have symptoms we have several types of treatment. Any treatment that fails to support the circulation throughout your entire body is likely to fail you and your health, but cardiovascular surgery and other conventional heart treatments, like drug therapies, are enormously, almost unimaginably profitable. Conventional medicine approach heart disease primarily one of two ways: Drano or Roter Rooter Surgery first it begins with a cathertization (2.3 million performed @ $20k) #1 Ream out the clogged arteries or flatten deposits in the vessels with a balloon or stent. While more than 1.2 million people undergo coronary angioplasty using a ballon at a cost of $40k a recent study just published in the New England of Medicine found that angioplasty did not save lives or prevent heart attacks in non-emergency heart patients. An even bigger surprise: Angioplasty gave only slight and temporary relief from chest pain, the main reason it is done. The study concluded that newer drugs were far more effective. #2 Another 1 million heart patients undergo a procedure in which a metal stent is placed in the artery to open up the blocked artery. A full 30 to 50 percent of patients experience re-blockages (restenosis) within six months of their initial procedure , which led to a drug coated stent. Now a new study is showing that the drug coated stents can lead to a stroke because of blood clotting. #3 Cut away clogged sections of the artery and replace it with a new section grafted from other parts of the body. This procedure is known as a Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (CABG) known in the medical profession as cabbage also referring to money which is what it is going to take a lot of ($60,000 per procedure). A common side effect is cerebral dysfunction or memory loss and mental decline and 4-10 % never survive the operation. 519,000 CABG procedures last year You should know that according to the New England Journal of Medicine a bypass compared to less invasive and risky medical therapies appears neither to prolong life nor prevent heart attacks in patients who have mild angina or suffer no chest pain after having a myocardial infarction. And yet CABGs alone generates over $20 billion dollars a year. And how about the price tag on a transplant… the heart is a donor (FREE) the blood is donated (FREE) and the suture material to stitch you up is worth about $2.50. Yet a transplant runs $750,000.00 and there were 2202 last year.
  • “ Traditional risk factors play a major role in treatment for prevention of heart disease, but they fail to reliably predict individuals at risk of heart attack.” A stress test can only be prescribed when a symptom shows up like chest pain and by then there is usually 70% blockage in the arteries. Out of 1.3 million stress tests last year, 67% of those tested needed surgery Out of the 1.1 million heart attacks last year 50% resulted in sudden death with no prior symptoms.
  • October 2005: The World Health Organization has published a report forcasting that four hundred million will die prematurely in the next ten years from chronic illnesses such as heart disease and diabetes. This will outpace every other epidemic and natural disaster in the history of humanity.
  • Associated Press Headlines announcing award of 1998 Nobel Prize in Medicine STOCKHOLM, Sweden, Oct. 12 The work that has lead to our current understanding of the importance of the nitric oxide pathway in cardiovascular disease was initiated by these three gentlemen, Fred Murad, Louis Ignarro, and Robert Furchgott. They were awarded the 1998 Nobel Prize in Medicine for this work.
  • Over 74,000 articles in medical journals since 1927 attest that “absolutely everything in the body depends on NO.” Medical Journals like Journal of American College of Cardiology, Lancet, Journal of Nutrition, Diabetes Care, Circulation, Medicine Sports Exercise, Journal of Physiology Pharmacology, etc. “ It helps maintain blood pressure by dilating the blood vessels, helps kill foreign invaders in the immune response, is a major mediator of penile erections, and is probably a major biochemical component of long term memory…” Science Magazine 1992 ‘ It does everything, everywhere. You cannot name a major cellular or physiological effect in which nitric oxide is not implicated today. It’s involved in complex behavioral changes in the brain, airway relaxation, beating of the heart, dilation of the blood vessels, regulation of intestinal movement, function of blood cells, the immune system, even how fingers and arms move.” Dr. Jonathan S Stamler, professor of medicine at Duke University Medical Center.
  • Antidepressant Drugs: Prozac, Paxil, Zoloft, Elavil Anti-anxiety Drugs: Xanax and Valium Anti-psychotic Drugs: Lithium Blood Pressure Medications: Cardiac Drugs: Lanoxin Arrythimic Drugs: Tambocor, Cardioquin Anti-Heartburn Drugs: Tagamet, Zantac, Prisolec Opioid Drugs: Lortab, Codeine Illegal Narcotics: Heroin, Cocaine Pain Killers:
  • Least toxic of all of the amino acids. 30-50 grams have been administered safely in clinical studies conducted at hospitals in the U.S. and abroad. Recent research shows that arginine deficiency, is a result of excess levels of a molecule called ADMA (Asymetricdimythylargine) which blocks arginine from doing its job, thus causing cardiovascular disease. ADMA is increased by: Diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, peripheral vascular disease, neurological damage, peptic ulcer, arthritis, allergy, low HDL, anti-depressant drugs, anti-anxiety drugs, anti-psychotic drugs, blood pressure drugs, cardiac drugs, anti-heartburn drugs, legal and illegal narcotics and pain killers, alcohol and tobacco.
  • According to John Cooke, “As nitric oxide burns off in the blood it removes plaque with it. So it actually melts away the plaque.” Arginine derived nitric oxide can reverse atherosclerosis, preventing coronary artery and carotid artery disease and thus preventing a heart attack or stroke.

  • How do these improvements compare with other forms of angina therapy? We reviewed the literature of the effects of therapy on quality of life. The first bars in white are changes in Sf-36 scores after 3 months with no change in therapy. The yellow bars are data from the QUART trial. This trial looked at the quality of life improvements after medical therapy was titrrated up to a maximal effect. The changes after 2 weeks of arginine are in red. Finally, the changes in QOL scores following bypass surgery as reported by Rockwoodin Nova Scotia. As you can see, the arginine treatment did quite well compared to bypass.
  • “ I used to send 240 patients a year to the cardiologist. Since I started using arginine in my practice, I have sent one patient in the last two years.” Joe Prendergast, M.D. 70% of diabetics will die from heart failure or a stroke, and many will first suffer with blindness, amputations, or kidney failure.
  • The proper amount of arginine stimulates, restores, and magnifies the sexual response in both men and women. No negative side effects or complications common among prescription drugs !
  • Too many Black Americans never get to know their grandchildren. The thief that is stealing them is heart disease and strokes. More Black Americans die from heart attacks and strokes than all other causes of death combined. 25% of Black American women over 55 have diabetes. 70% people with diabetes will die of a heart attack or stroke. 1 out of 3 Black Americans have high blood pressure vs 1 out of 4 general population. Women age 35 to 49 23% A/A have high blood pressure vs only 8.5% or white women. 1 out of 3 Black American women are obese. 73% of white women live past 75 Black Americans dark skin prevent the absorption of vitamin D which is essential for preventing heart failure (supplement with 800-1000 IUs of vitamin D daily.
  • 47% of Americans have no insurance Some people have bemoaned the fact that the life prolonging supplement, Cardio Cocktail is $75 per bottle for a full month's supply. The question that immediately comes to mind is "How much is too much?" How much would it be worth if you could literally melt the plaque in your arteries and veins? How much would it be worth if you could have a healthy heart and have teflon-like veins and arteries? How much would it be worth if you could Lower Your Blood Pressure, Lower Your Cholesterol, Improve Diabetes, Improve Sexual Function, Reduce Blood Clots & Strokes, Improve Heart Failure, Improve Kidney Function, Improve Memory, and Increase Muscle Growth & Performance? How much would it be worth to you if you could literally add years to your life and life to your years? How much would it be worth if you could bring back a family member or friend who died of a heart attack, stroke or related disease? Heart disease is the number one (#1) killer of Americans today. Let's put a stop to it... ARGININE is the answer! The option is yours!
  • Age is a feeling not a number! Life is the production of energy! Health is the natural state of the body. If you make the right CHOICE now , all the evidence promises that the quality of life you can enjoy into your sunset years will be rich with both mental and physical pleasures. Martin Luther’s message was simple and clear: neither the church in Rome nor anybody else can sell the key to heaven because the key to heaven is within yourself. This simple message released a storm wind of spiritual liberation. Suddenly millions of people realized that they had been cheated and abused for decades and for one purpose only: the boundless enrichment of Rome. The storm of liberation was so powerful that the existing systems of the world came tumbling down. On April 18th, 1521, only four years later, Luther was called in front of the emperor’s Diety in the city of Worms. In the presence of Emperor Charles V and the pontifical legates, he was pressed to recant in order to stabilize the antiquated order of things. Luther did not recant. This day in Worms is considered the single most important day in this millennium, because, like no other, it influenced the further development of this millennium. The liberation of the human mind from a century-old yoke of spiritual slavery had become irreversible. Millions of illiterate farmers learned to read and write with the help of the German translation of the Bible. During the course of the 16th century the illiteracy rate in Europe dropped from 80% to 20%. Commerce and trade began to blossom because now people could write. Ulrich von Hutten, a contemporary of Luther, described the incredible feeling of liberation with the words, “What a joy it is to live.” The medieval times had ended once and for all and the liberation of the human spirit and intellect released resources in all sectors of society and made Europe the most influential continent on Planet Earth. Today, 500 years later, we find ourselves in a similar dependency. This time it is not the dependency of the mind and the intellect, but the dependency of our bodies and our health. Just as 500 years ago, millions of people are being deprived of their last money for an illusion: health through the pharmaceutical industry. It is high time that this illusion is ended. Thus, as it was 500 years ago, the message today is simple. Nobody except yourself owns the key to your health. The liberation of mankind towards health will liberate similar resources in all sectors of society, like the intellectual liberation 500 years ago.

    10. 10. Dr. Dwight Lundell Chief of Staff & Chief of Surgery Banner Heart Hospital (2 nd largest) “ The only accepted therapy was prescribing medications to lower cholesterol and a diet that severely restricted fat intake.   Deviations from these recommendations were considered heresy and could quite possibly result in malpractice.” “ I freely admit to being wrong…” “ These recommendations are no longer scientifically or morally defensible. Despite the fact that 25% of the population takes expensive statin medications and despite the fact we have reduced the fat content of our diets, more Americans will die this year of heart disease than ever before.” Dr. Lundell left surgery to focus on using nutritional treatment of heart disease.

    13. 13. Early Detection Is Critical! Oprah just recently endorsed the concept of testing to determine her vascular age but is not an affiliate of any specific screening company. Oprah recently demonstrated the value of having a Cardio Screening to determine her Vascular Age. Of course everybody wanted to experience what Oprah did... Unfortunately, we have heard her screening was about $2000. American Heart Association recommends a cardio screening for everyone over 20!

    22. 22. Americans Win Nobel Prize In Medicine STOCKHOLM, Sweden, Oct. 12, 1998 Three Americans won the Nobel Prize in medicine Monday for discovering that the body uses nitric oxide gas to make blood vessels relax and widen — a finding that could pay off in treatments for heart disease . Associated Press Ferid Murad Louis J. Ignarro Robert Furchgott
    23. 23. What Is Nitric Oxide (“NO”)? <ul><li>Over 74,000 medically published clinical studies dating all the way back to 1927 </li></ul><ul><li>Named “ Molecule of the Year ” by Science magazine in 1992 </li></ul><ul><li>Produced by the endothelial cell linings along 100,000 miles of blood vessels and capillaries in the human body </li></ul><ul><li>Keeps blood vessels open, elastic and functioning properly </li></ul><ul><li>Source: The Cardiovascular Cure: Your Self-Defense Against Heart Attack and Stroke (Random House, 2002). </li></ul>“ Most Americans are not producing enough “ NO ” in their blood vessels. ” John Cooke, M.D., Ph.D.

    25. 25. THE BENEFITS OF NITRIC OXIDE <ul><li>BLOOD PRESSURE : NO Lowers blood pressure, improves blood flow and blood vessel diameter, and prevents the formation of blood clots. </li></ul><ul><li>HEART: NO widens blood vessels, increases oxygen supply and protects the heart from damage and cell death. NO helps establish regular electrical impulses and normal rhythm to the heart. </li></ul><ul><li>IMMUNE SYSTEM: Immune cells release bursts of nitric oxide to kill bacteria, viral and parasitic infections. NO is involved in the production of blood cells in the bone marrow and has been shown to increase the number of immune boosting “Killer T-Cells.” </li></ul><ul><li>BRAIN: NO transmits messages between nerve cells and is associated with the processes of learning, memory, and sleeping. It can stimulate the brain and modulate many functions, from behavior to gastrointestinal activity. </li></ul>
    26. 26. THE BENEFITS OF NITRIC OXIDE <ul><li>IMPOTENCE : NO stimulates, restores and magnifies the natural responses of male and female genitals. Creating increased NO is the expected effect of the celebrated drug Viagra . The proper amount of NO heightens and lengthens the time of stimulation. </li></ul><ul><li>INFLAMMATION : NO is a mediator in inflammation and rheumatism. NO helps relieve pain. The drug morphine produces NO, which is the non-addictive but beneficial portion of the drug. </li></ul><ul><li>TUMOR REDUCTION : NO reduces tumor growth and increases the immune response against the radical replication of cancerous cells. </li></ul><ul><li>SKELETAL MUSCLES : NO widens the blood channels leading to skeletal muscles. For those that exercise or weight-lift, this means faster gains in lean muscle mass, greater strength, increased endurance, and full-body muscle recovery. </li></ul>

Why Black Americans Are 5 Times More Likely To Suffer From Cardiovascular Disease <ul><li>New Study At Ohio State & Published In Circulation Showed: </li></ul><ul><li>The cardiovascular system of black subjects have more enzymes to produce nitric oxide and can be more efficient than those of white subjects. </li></ul><ul><li>Black subjects did not produce enough of the amino acid L-arginine to complete the process of nitric oxide production. </li></ul><ul><li>Instead the enzyme produces another oxidative molecule, superoxide, which reacts with nitric oxide to create even more powerful and damaging oxiant, known as peroxynitrate, which leads to cardiovascular disease and cancer. </li></ul><ul><li>“ What is amazing is that this system has a great potential to produce nitiric oxide and can be corrected very efficiently and at a relatively early age.” Dr. Thadeusz Malinski </li></ul>
