  3. 3. Heart Disease Is The #1 Killer <ul><li>50% of all DEATHS in the U.S. </li></ul><ul><li>A heart attack every 20 seconds </li></ul><ul><li>1 death every 60 seconds </li></ul><ul><li>1 million each year </li></ul><ul><li>Kills more than the next 9 causes of death </li></ul>
  4. 4. Not Just A Man Killer <ul><li>500,000 women every year die from heart disease each year dwarfing breast cancer. </li></ul><ul><li>60% of youth are at risk for heart disease: </li></ul><ul><li>High blood pressure </li></ul><ul><li>High cholesterol </li></ul><ul><li>High insulin levels </li></ul>
  5. 5. What Is Cardiovascular Disease? <ul><li>Hypertension </li></ul><ul><li>Congestive Heart Failure </li></ul><ul><li>Coronary Heart Disease </li></ul><ul><li>Stroke </li></ul><ul><li>Diabetes </li></ul><ul><li>Peripheral Arterial Disease </li></ul><ul><li>Critical Limb Ischemia </li></ul><ul><li>Vasculogenic Impotence </li></ul><ul><li>Sudden Cardiac Death </li></ul>Stroke
  6. 6. Are You A Ticking Time Bomb? <ul><li>Sudden Cardiac Death accounts for 300,000 </li></ul><ul><li>deaths each year – 1 every 60 seconds </li></ul><ul><li>95% die before reaching the hospital </li></ul><ul><li>70% die at home </li></ul><ul><li>100,000 athletes die each year from SCD </li></ul><ul><li>SCD takes the lives of 6 children every week </li></ul><ul><li>Almost one-third of sudden cardiac arrests outside homes and hospitals occur in fitness clubs or sports facilities… Mary Fran Hazinski, Senior Science Editor for the American Heart Association </li></ul>
  7. 7. Stress & Heart Disease <ul><li>FACTS </li></ul><ul><li>50% of Heart Attack victims had normal cholesterol levels. </li></ul><ul><li>Anxiety & Depression double the risk of a 1 st heart attack and quadruples the risk for a repeat heart attack. </li></ul><ul><li>Hostility raises risk of a heart attack by 29% and by 60% in people under 60 years old. </li></ul><ul><li>Childhood trauma raises risk of a heart attack by 30 to 70%. </li></ul><ul><li>WHY </li></ul><ul><li>Negative emotions affect the autonomic nervous systems which in turn affects all the organs. </li></ul><ul><li>Depression, anger & hostility increase C-reactive protein…a blood marker for inflammation. </li></ul><ul><li>Stress cardiomyopathy or “broken-heart syndrome caused from a major shock…people had 30 times the normal level of adrenaline, which is 4 to 5 times higher than people actually having a heart attack. This huge dose of hormone disrupts the way heart cells take up calcium, which affects the way the heart contracts. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Many Signs Of CV Disease
  9. 9. Standard Medical Treatment Is Failing Big Time
  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. Won the Iron Man Competition at age 65
  11. 11. Are You At Risk? <ul><li>Risk Factors for Cardiovascular </li></ul><ul><li>Disease that You Can Control </li></ul><ul><li>Hypertension </li></ul><ul><li>High Cholesterol </li></ul><ul><li>Diabetes </li></ul><ul><li>Cigarette Smoking </li></ul><ul><li>Obesity </li></ul><ul><li>Physical Inactivity </li></ul><ul><li>Dyslipidemia </li></ul><ul><li>Poor Kidney Function </li></ul>
  12. 12. SHAPE Task Force <ul><li>SHAPE: Screening for Heart Attack Prevention & Education </li></ul><ul><li>“ Prevention Before Intervention” </li></ul><ul><li>Report published in American Journal of Cardiology —July 2006 </li></ul><ul><li>Prevent 90,000 deaths from cardiovascular disease and save </li></ul><ul><li>$21 billion annually. </li></ul><ul><li>Guideline calls for non-invasive screening of all asymptomatic men between 45 and 75 and women between 55 and 75. </li></ul><ul><li>“ We hope to build a new momentum in cardiology that </li></ul><ul><li>inspires physicians to use modern technologies for the </li></ul><ul><li>prevention of heart attack, rather than using expensive </li></ul><ul><li>technologies only to treat heart attack, which is too late </li></ul><ul><li>and results in benefits too little to benefit patients. What </li></ul><ul><li>we as cardiologists practice today is mostly sick-care the </li></ul><ul><li>future will have to be based on health care, otherwise </li></ul><ul><li>the wildly rising cost of medical care will bankrupt our </li></ul><ul><li>system.” </li></ul>
  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!
  14. 14. THE TEST FDA Cleared Class II Medical Device <ul><li>Takes a snapshot of your arterial elasticity </li></ul><ul><li>Tests heart rate, artery flexibility, hydration levels and overall cardiovascular health </li></ul><ul><li>Quick, Affordable, Painless and Reliable </li></ul>

  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.
  24. 24. The Nitric Oxide “NO” Effect <ul><li>“ NO ” dilates the vessels </li></ul><ul><li>and increases blood </li></ul><ul><li>flow </li></ul><ul><li>“ NO ” increases oxygen </li></ul><ul><li>supply and protects the </li></ul><ul><li>heart and other organs </li></ul><ul><li>from damage and cell </li></ul><ul><li>death </li></ul><ul><li>“ NO ” makes the interior </li></ul><ul><li>surface of the arteries </li></ul><ul><li>like Teflon … nothing </li></ul><ul><li>sticks! </li></ul><ul><li>Source: </li></ul><ul><li>Nobel e-Museum </li></ul>
  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>
  27. 27. What Causes A Decrease In “NO”? <ul><li>Age </li></ul><ul><li>Heart Disease, Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, Low HDL Cholesterol </li></ul><ul><li>Neurological Damage </li></ul><ul><li>Arthritis, Allergies, Peptic Ulcer </li></ul><ul><li>Alcohol and Tobacco </li></ul><ul><li>Prescription Drugs </li></ul><ul><li>Trans Fatty Acids (Fried Foods) </li></ul><ul><li>Sickle Cell Disease </li></ul>
  28. 28. How To Increase Nitric Oxide <ul><li>Exercise </li></ul><ul><li>Healthy diet </li></ul><ul><li>Dr. Salvador Moncada (England) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>discovered that the endothelium </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>uses arginine to make nitric </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>oxide </li></ul></ul>Dr. Moncada
  29. 29. What Is Arginine? <ul><li>One of twenty-two naturally-occurring amino acids necessary for life. </li></ul><ul><li>Found naturally in dietary protein sources such as red meat, fish and nuts. About 3 grams in the average diet. </li></ul><ul><li>Your body ’ s key source of nitrogen, critical for maintaining circulatory functions. </li></ul><ul><li>Over 74,000 of peer-reviewed publications link arginine to vascular benefits dating as far back as 1927. </li></ul>
  30. 30. The All Natural Solution “ In the field of medicine and health it is one of the revolutions of our time. The discovery that the amino acid arginine may be the “magic bullet” for the cardiovascular system.” R. Fried, Ph.D., & W. Merrell, M.D.
  31. 31. The All Natural Cure <ul><li>“ There is magic within all of us. It comes in the shape of a molecule known as nitric oxide. A substance so powerful that it can actually protect you from heart attack and stroke. Best of all your body can make it on its own. Nitric oxide is your bodies best defense against heart disease. The body is capable of healing itself. What you do with the magic is up to you.” </li></ul><ul><li>John P. Cooke, M.D., Ph.D. </li></ul><ul><li>Chief of Vascular Medicine </li></ul><ul><li>Stanford Medical Center </li></ul>

  38. 38. 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>
  39. 39. Seize The Day <ul><li>&quot;You do not have to wait for the rest of the world to see the light--and the drug companies to put new N itric O xide-based prescription drugs on the market--in order to take advantage of what N itric O xide has to offer. Even if you have high blood pressure, have suffered a heart attack, or are at high risk...You can beat the odds. The power to lead an entirely new and healthier life is in your hands.
