A1: Dear Doctor:
I am happy to oblige. I simply ask the surgeon to agree to allow the patient to record their consultation and have the surgeon cover a true INFORMED CONSENT where the potential complications are fully discussed with the patient who gets to keep the digital audio recording. Then the surgeon is to discuss the potential benefits of the surgery vs. the risks. Then the surgeon is to inform the patient of the true incidence of similar blockages in the general public at the patient’s age.
Once we have a level playing field with full information available, we ask the surgeon, does the patient have any hypercoagulability issues, from LEIDEN 5 to Antiphospholipid Syndrome? Should the patient be fully evaluated by http://www.thrombosis.net
so that the possibility that he has a blood clot due to an untreatable clotting disorder has been ruled out before subjecting him to potentially debilitating surgery? What is the proposed surgeon’s success rate over the past 5 years? How many of his operated patients have suffered any morbidity or mortality related to their vascular disease in the past 5 years. What is the incidence of complications of any sort in the past 5 years related to his operating for this condition?
Then once we have handled that, I simply inform patients that I am not God and that clearly this is a potentially dangerous condition but somehow the simple use twice a day of Beyond Chelation-Improved and Boluoke (or Nattokinase if the correct source) has meant that I have not been made aware of a single fatal MI or stroke in anyone using that basic program in over 20 years. Today in complex cases with the history of a recent small stroke, I would add Beyond B12, one nightly, and ACS 50 sprays bid for 1 month then 25 sprays bid for a year.
I feel then that since I have not become aware of any failure involving the death of a patient, that this will suffice but if my approach were to fail, it would be a first time. That would mean that there are other problems beyond the obstruction, contributing to the picture. I am confident that we would discover underlying undiagnosed conditions such as low grade inflammation/infection, Chlamydia, CMV etc contributing to a total body burden of pathogens that were never diagnosed or treated and/or heavy metals that warranted lowering with chelation therapy.
I always also recommend the the use of IV Chelation, the standard 3 hour or the newer short push approach to handle this type of condition, a series of minimum 30, twice a week. I use Thermography to determine when the stroke risk has been fully addressed by proven blood flow improvement.
I do not believe that the patient should expect that with or without the IV Chelation there will be significant plaque reversal, which is NOT ESSENTIAL to the outcome desired, which is to stay alive and function. Plaque reversal requires deeper involvement with personalized medicine approach and optimizing everything from c- reactive protein and Homocysteine and testosterone levels etc and a total lifestyle program with dietary change, exercise etc.
If that is the plan then that leads to the need for life-time supplementation with Beyond Bone Defense (Vitamin K-2) and optimizing all of the total health approaches, as outlined in my F.I.G.H.T. program (lowering pathogens with ACS and detoxing with Sauna, Zeolite, Fiber, and using my Power Drink to increase health of vascular tissues with all the BIOE’NR-G’Y C and Beyond Fiber, MACA etc to permit my patients to reach their maximum intended useful lifespan.
