The Heart is A Very Resilient Muscle

One of the most interesting things about the human heart is that it beats as much as three or more times longer than the heart of any other mammals. Over a 75-year lifespan, the heart beats an extra 2076 million times more and pumps more than 38,304,947.5919 extra gallons of blood. With this in mind, it’s fairly easy to understand why diseases of the heart are common even if you do treat your heart with TLC. And, if you don’t, you can pretty much expect heart disease to be rampant and responsible for many deaths. Even so, the quote from Woody Allen certainly applies: “The heart is a very, very resilient little muscle.”

Taking care of the human heart is really not all that difficult. Yet so many people simply do not want to be bothered with making the lifestyle changes required to have a healthy heart. Basically, it’s about what you put in your mouth and how much you move your body that determines your heart health. Controlling weight through healthy eating and exercise is number one on the list. Learning how to control stress is also important. Sadly, most Americans have no idea how many exciting and effective treatments have been developed and made readily available over the past few dozen years…outside the usual care approaches.

Americans are notorious for wanting a pill to fix whatever ails befall them. There are pills for blood pressure, pills for cholesterol, even more. If a pill doesn’t fix it, then they think surgery will. About 500,000 open-heart surgeries are performed in the U.S. each year. Nonetheless, the following statistics are a fact:

In the next 30 minutes or so:

35 Americans will die from heart disease – whether they know they have heart disease or not.

42 people will suffer a heart attack.2

31 of those will be experiencing a first heart attack.2

12 will be experiencing their feared second or later heart attack.2

21 people will die from their heart attacks.

Remember and share this critical observation: “You can’t drug yourself out of a disease you ate yourself into.”

Far too many people suffer pain and ill health without knowing exactly the true source and underlying cause of their pain. For those with diagnosed heart disease who take pills yet still feel bad, you may not know that there are many more – and very powerful – things you can do under the guidance of a doctor who practices integrative medicine that does not depend on prescription drugs and surgeries, which very often interfere with the body’s own attempts to heal and repair naturally. The heart is a resilient muscle and when treated “right” could go on beating for you beyond what you thought possible. Give our office a call today if you suspect you could have heart disease or if you have diagnosed with heart disease and are not quite on board with the prescribed method of dealing with it. Here’s an encouraging hint: we have perfected many powerful strategies to reduce your risks of developing earlier heart and circulation problems. We will get to the root of the issue.

Is Your Body Rusting?

“What!” You exclaim, upon reading the title of this piece. You say to yourself, “Bodies can’t rust! We’re not made of tin like the Tin Man.” That’s absolutely true. Human beings are not made of tin. But, inside the human body, in the tiny capillaries, arteries and veins, free radicals accumulate which cause damage that is very similar and as serious as the damaging effects rust has on metals.


The truth is that even among mainstream medicine, evidence is accumulating that confirms the idea that most of the degenerative diseases that afflict humanity have their origin in free radical reactions. The diseases that are believed to be the result of free radical damage include atherosclerosis, cancer, inflammatory joint disease, asthma, diabetes, senile dementia and degenerative eye disease. Yes, just about all of them! And get this, the very process of aging is the result of free radical damage.


So, you may wonder, what are these free radicals and how do they accumulate? Free radical damage is caused primarily from toxic chemicals and metals lodged in the body’s organs. This is the result of chemical pollution in our air, water, food, tobacco, dental fillings, cookware, antiperspirant ad infinitum. In other words, our world is filled with chemical pollutants.


It’s no wonder most people on the planet are suffering from so many diseases with so many different names. And, it’s no wonder that so very few are finding real relief through mainstream medical channels.


The truth is that every part of your body depends on clean air, clean water and clean food. A critical way to feel better is to eliminate the toxins in the body. There is a non-surgical method called chelation that stimulates the natural healing processes of the body by removing the toxic metals that are lodged throughout all of your body cells. It’s not a ‘quick-fix’ method that just requires popping a pill. But if you still have hope for finding lasting relief, it is finally the time for you to look for alternatives to taking drugs or undergoing surgery. Give us a call and ask about Chelation Therapy. You’ll be amazed how you  could feel without all that “rust” in your body.





Presentation: Second Chance For Those Who Survived Their First Heart Attack (And Those Who Want To)

Professional Oral Health Care Helps Prevent Heart Attacks & Strokes

shutterstock_123375616Although there is no conclusive proof found that gum disease causes heart disease or stroke, there is good news for folks who remain loyal to the recommended annual visit to the dental hygienist.

A recent study from Taiwan suggests that people who routinely get their teeth cleaned (undergo professional tooth scaling) have as much as 24 percent lower risk of heart attacks and 13 percent lower risk of stroke, than those who never actually visit the hygienist. Researchers have also concluded from a similar Swedish study that harmful oral flora is an excellent predictor of heart attack and stroke.

The effects of oral health on overall healthfulness have been the subject of scientific studies for quite some time, and this new research provides added proof that patients who receive regular dental care and follow recommended oral hygiene regimens can successfully reduce their risk of both heart attack and stroke.

Taiwan Study

The study from Taiwan followed 100,000 participants over a 7-year period, most of whom submitted to professional teeth cleaning at least twice or more in two years; and at least once or less in two years. About half of the adults underwent full or partial tooth scaling while the other half matched with gender and health conditions from the test group but had no tooth scaling. Although researchers did not adjust for potential heart attack and stroke risk factors prior to the study none of the participants reported a history of heart attack or stroke.

shutterstock_142808959Emily (Zu-Yin) Chen, M.D., cardiology fellow at the Veterans General Hospital in Taipei, Taiwan concluded from the study that protection from heart disease and stroke was more pronounced in participants who received tooth scaling at least once a year. In other words, clinical oral health care—tooth scaling—reduces bacterial growth that can lead to serious cardiovascular conditions.

In a separate study coming from Sweden, researchers discovered that the value of markers for gum disease predict heart attack, congestive heart failure and stroke in different ways and in slightly different degrees. Anders Holmlund, D.D.S., Ph.D. Centre for Research and Development of the County Council of Gävleborg, Sweden, and senior consultant; Specialized Dentistry, studied 7,999 participants with periodontal disease and found people with:

  • Fewer than 21 teeth had a 69 percent increased risk of heart attack compared to those with the most teeth.
  • A higher number of deepened periodontal pockets (infection of the gum around the base of the tooth) had a 53 percent increased risk of heart attack compared to those with the fewest pockets.
  • The least amount of teeth had a 2.5 increased risk of congestive heart failure compared to those with the most teeth.
  • The highest incidence of gum bleeding had a 2.1 increased risk of stroke compared to those with the lowest incidence.

These studies highlight the importance of educating patients about oral health to stress the potential impact periodontal disease can have on overall healthfulness. Unfortunately many adults develop some type of periodontal disease due to a lack of daily brushing and flossing, and all too infrequent visits to the dental hygienist.  Routine teeth cleaning will help avoid periodontal disease, and ultimately can help to prevent heart attack and stokes.
