Living with a Green Heart Book Review:

“If you want one of the shortest, fastest routes to getting toxic chemicals out of your life, get behind the wheel of Gay Browne’s Living with a Green Heart and you’ll get there in no time flat.” —Ken Cook, President, Environmental Working Group In an increasingly toxic world, the paths to environmental health and personal well-being run parallel. The journey begins with a few small steps. Is the damage we’re doing to our planet literally leaving you sick, sore, and gasping for air? Want to take back our inalienable rights to clean air, clean water, and healthy food? In this quietly revolutionary book, environmental pioneer and founder of Greenopia, Gay Browne, shares a roadmap for making incremental changes that will not only transform your life, but heal the world we share. From the home to the office, from the foods we eat to the clothes we wear, here are actions you can take today that will improve your Personal Environmental Health, and help you stop feeling overwhelmed, reduce illness, improve sleep, mood, and focus, and start making a difference, including: *Make conscious choices when shopping, and support companies with good environmental stewardship and healthy products. *Test your water for harmful chemicals, install an affordable water filtration system, and reduce your water use by utilizing water more efficiently. *Work with your doctor to create a personal plan for detoxing your body. *Use only non-toxic and organic household products, and choose organic, eco-friendly fabrics made by sustainable and fair trade certified companies. *Choose the method of transportation that makes the lightest carbon footprint.

Detox Your Heart Book Review:

Drawing on her own experiences with abuse and addiction, Valerie Mason-John presents a well-grounded series of meditations that transform anger, hatred, and fear to heal emotional trauma. Valerie Mason-John knows what it is like to be filled with toxic emotions—and how to release them. After years of abuse and struggles with addiction, she was mired in anger, resentment, and fear. But through meditation and willingness to forge a new path, she learned how to disarm such toxins and find peace. In Detox Your Heart Mason-John helps us recognize our emotions, good and bad, and to develop the self-care to heal ourselves. Chapters that explore and clearly define negative emotions are paired with chapters on how to transform them. Meditation exercises based on the Buddhist principles of mindfulness, loving-kindness, and compassion provide tools to help us heal our own hurts and to close the gap that toxic emotions create between heart and mind.

How to Prevent and Reverse Heart Diseases Book Review:

3. Chelation Therapy, how it works, where to seek help Chelation Therapy has been in medical use for decades to treat the patients intoxicated with heavy metals like lead, mercury, arsenic and many others. The procedure involves use of FDA approved chelating agents like ethylene diamine tetra acetic acid (EDTA). Dimercaptosuccinic acid (DMSA) is another chelating agent used for the treatment of lead poisoning in children. However chelation therapy has not been approved by FDA for anything other than removal of heavy metals. Nevertheless Alternative medicine practitioners frequently use chelation therapy for helping patients with Heart disease. Hardening of arteries reduces the flow of blood through them thus affecting the much needed nourishment and oxygen to different parts of body. However administration of EDTA intravenously has proven time and time again effective against reversing the hardening of arteries and improving the blood flow. The treatment is almost painless. You simply lie down or sit up hooked up to a I V drip , read your book, sip on water, or simply relax and watch TV. The process takes about an hour and a half per sitting, depending upon your dosage. I am told 3 grams is full dose (bag)and one can start with half of that(half bag). You are encouraged to take a drink of water frequently as you would make a trip or two to empty your bladder to flush out the toxins. The procedure is conducted and supervised under a qualified medical practitioner. Your doctor will normally order blood test for you before and after few treatments to check your kidney function. Also your doctor will decide the total number and the frequency of these treatments depending on your situation. So basically the chelating agent like EDTA binds with the deposits and heavy metals in your blood and thus slowly flushing them out in your urine. Hence the importance of drinking water. Introducing Integrative Medicine. According to ACAM integrative medicine combines conventional care with alternative medicine to improve patient care. Rather than practice one type of medicine, integrative physicians will often combine therapies and treatment approaches to ensure the best results for their patients. ACAM physicians do not shun western medicine, in fact they practice western care every day. These physicians are unique in that they incorporate appropriate and proven alternative treatment options. Introducing ACAM-American College For Advancement In Medicine. ACAM organization located in Irvine California, trains and certify all licensed healthcare providers, including M.D's, DO's, ND's, Phd's and DC's and many more in integrative medicine. Chelation Therapy is one example. They maintain a list of certified Chelation therapists around the world. Contact ACAM in USA at 1-800-532-3688. Monday-Friday 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM Mountain Time or click on to this link http://acam.site-ym.com/search/custom.asp?id=1758 Click on Health Resources and select Physician+ link. Then select from Specialties "Chelation Therapy" from drop down list. Select country, and hit continue. You should have list of doctors certified by ACAM. (Note: In some countries you may not find any doctor). Note: Some of these treatments may not be covered by your medical insurance. Important Note: Readers are advised to be careful about using Oral Chelation products. Research shows that it may take a very long time, months or years in some cases to see any desired benefits. However intravenous Chelation Therapy many times is able to achieve these required benefits in days. Unfortunately IV therapy could be expensive as it may not be covered by your medical insurance. In that case Oral Chelation would be a alternate choice. Reported Benefits of Chelation Therapy: * Lowers Cholesterol * Helps lower blood pressure * Helps getting rid of cramps * Curb the Hair loss and even grow new hair * Reduce insulin dependence. Great for diabetics * Improve eye sight and avoid cataracts * Even post surgery cataract patients will enjoy fully restored sight *Sharpen memory and mental functions * look younger with less wrinkles and healthy nails * Avoid cold feet and hands and improve physical energy * Improved sex life * Reduce allergies * Improve cardiac health * Excellent cure for Alzheimer's disease *Helps maintain ideal weight *Reduces pain from arthritis and the list goes on. The Chelation Process Before actual treatment is scheduled your doctor should run your necessary lab reports for blood, urine and kidney functions. Also should check your blood for metal toxicity and go over your medical history including blood pressure and blood sugar. This would help your doctor to adjust your EDTA dosage and frequency of treatments. Your doctor knows best. Just follow his/her advice. If your primary doctor has covered some of these tests very recently you should take copies of these reports to this doctor, if you can. However I warn you if you will ask your primary doctor about Chelation therapy, most probably he will not approve it. You see main stream medical practitioners do not believe in these treatments. However when it was their own health involved these same doctors in several cases have opted for Chelation. According to National Institute of Health, over 800,000 patients opted for Chelation therapy in the United States in a single year! Kindly note this process is also advisable for heart patients who have already gone through the bypass as chances are the vein grafts used in bypass do get clogged again within next year or two. The chelation has been successfully used even for patients over age 90, hence age is not a issue factor normally. The process itself is painless. It is intravenous prick with a needle to start the EDTA drip. Though you are tied to IV equipment, mostly on wheels, you are free to move or use restroom as your arm is properly secured with tape. You can also simply sit with pillow supporting your back or lie down. You are free to move about, talk to other patients undergoing the same treatment, read a book or do your office / paper work, or watch TV or bring your kindle to read books like these. It is always a pleasant atmosphere. Trust me I have personally taken 12 treatments in year 2000 and now at age 75 I am planning to take few more treatments soon. One of the reason I have generated this kindle publication is to let people know that I am talking from my own experience as well. As they say it is better to die healthy when you are very old than to die young and unhealthy. Normal duration of this treatment is between 1-2 hours. You will start seeing some benefits after 4 to 5 treatments. Ten to 30 treatments are common depending upon your personal medical issues. You can also ask your doctor if you are a good candidate for a lower dosage (or half a bag) treatments saving you time and may be money. Make sure you communicate well with your doctor, if Chelation makes you feel dizzy or uncomfortable, weak or lethargic due to low blood pressure possibly. 99% of the times I believe you will have no side effects. EDTA is a mild diuretic and if you have frequent visits to bathroom consider that as a good sign. Drink plenty of water to help flush your kidneys. Average cost for Chelation treatments Costs vary from clinic to clinic but would run approx. around $100-$150 per treatment. Most of the insurance providers do not cover the cost. If you have time and patience and money you can fight the insurance provider and plead your case. I believe insurance pays if the chelation is for removal of toxic metals. Check with your doctor. Almost 12 years ago when I took the treatments my insurance company finally paid half of the cost. May be we should approach AARP group, here in USA, to fight for us. They have a strong voice for seniors. Let us now examine some actual case histories These case histories are collected from several sources as described below: Source: "Everything You Should Know About Chelation Therapy" by Dr. Morton Walker and Dr. Hitendra Shah. This is a great book to read. 1. R. H. is blind in his left eye as a result of a childhood accident. unfortunately he goes blind on the other eye as well. His doctor told him, there is nothing that can be done for him. However after 7 Chelation sessions his vision returns and at the same distance he reads better than his doctor! 2. Stewart F. an assembly-line foreman, was at the point of losing his gangrenous big toe. However 20 Chelation treatments saved his foot. 3. Harold W. H, M.D., was genetically predisposed to die early from a heart attack (like his father and grandfather and many other family members). He was advised to give up working as a doctor, as the stress involved aggravated his condition. After a first early heart attack, he received a classic combination of Chelation treatments and improved his diet and lifestyle. He returned to full health and was able to resume his duties. 4. John H. M.D., Clinical Professor of Surgery, has given over 16.000 Chelation infusions to his patients. He uses EDTA Chelation on himself. At the age of 70, he is still operating 15 hours a day. 5. Ophelia , 79, had a series of strokes. She was no longer able to walk alone. After more strokes she was hospitalized for the second time, then sent home, where she suffered yet another stroke, which paralyzed her so that she couldn't swallow anymore. Her children prepared for her death, but the old lady hung on to life for another three weeks. Her ankles were swollen and fluid was in the base of her lungs. She could not hear. She was semi-comatose - slipping in and out of sleep. Then, one of her sons arrived with news about Chelation therapy. Her doctor could not promise the family anything, as their Mamma was so far gone. She received the therapy, and improved steadily. The paralysis left. She re-learned everything she had lost: eating, drinking, talking coherently, moving around first with a walker, then without. Her first Chelation course consisted of 21 infusions. Later she took 20 more, at intervals of several months between series of 5. She is now well and carrying on a productive life. Her hearing has returned, and her appetite (that she had lost) is so good the family says she eats anything put in front of her, including Italian wine and sausage! 6. D.D. head of three corporations, found himself unable to function. Not only his brain failed, also his heart and his eyes. He was lucky to find the clinic of Dr. Evers , who gave him a special diet, exercise and Chelation therapy. After this treatment, D.D. was back to normal life. 7. A 46 year old woman from Texas, was brought to a Dr. Deiter because she was suddenly absolutely demented. She failed to recognize her husband or her grown children or her friends. A hair analysis found her to be super- saturated with mercury. After just a week of daily Chelation, she regained her senses. 8. A 58 year old attorney was legally blind from macular degeneration. School medicine had tried their standard procedures but could not halt the progress of the degenerative process. He decided to improve his diet and administer Chelation therapy. After less than 4 months he could read and even drive again. 9. C.C., a police officer, had three coronary artery blockages, one of 85%, one of 80%, and one of 75%. His cardiologist told him that he was beyond surgery - he was a goner! He decided to fight, and arrived in Dr. Evers' hospital in a wheelchair. After 7 weeks of Chelation treatment he went back to his job, which included picking up 200-pound drunks off the street. 10. Dr. Leon Anderson, doctor of osteopathy, had a Parkinson's type of tremor in his right hand. He took 30 chelation infusions, but the tremor already responded after the 5th. His health was restored and he could continue to work as a doctor. 11. Nick J. was hit by a series of unusual problems following a car accident. He suffered intense chest pains, and spells of unconsciousness. Within two years, he received 117 Chelations, his symptoms cleared up and the blackouts disappeared. 12. Warren M. Levin, M.D., used Chelation therapy on his patients but also on himself, as a prevention, having lost his father at the age of 56, without having any pressing need of his own. He noticed a very remarkable improvement in his memory functions. 13. Dr. R. H. a chiropractor, whose gangrenous diabetic legs were saved from amputation by only 15 Chelation infusions. 14. Paul M. a car assembly supervisor and chain smoker, had a whole list of complaints based on bad blood circulation. Hypertension, chest pain and muscle cramps were among them. 20 Chelation sessions gave him his health back. The blood pressure returned to normal after the 4th. 15. Alfred was told by a surgeon that he was in dire danger of death. He needed open heart surgery to correct his angina, but the mortality risk for him would be 50%. Aubrey agreed to the operation, but was not a fit enough candidate, was refused the operation and sent home to die. After receiving a course of Chelation therapy, he was again fit enough to walk four miles daily before breakfast. A new test found his heart good and his lungs clear, he was no longer a cardiac patient. But Medicare, his health care organization, refused to pay his bill in the amount of $364. The operation together with the hospital bill, amounting to $ 75,000, would have been paid, but as the treatment that cured him was "experimental and not tested" and "not considered the usual and customary treatment", he had to pay for it out of his own pocket. 16. Lester I. doctor of osteopathy, had an early warning and Chelation recommendation by a colleague, that he ignored. Only after his near-fatal heart attack 5 months later, where he needed electric shocks to bring his enlarged heart back to life, did he start the first 30 chelation infusions. He returned to full health. Source: Forty Something Forever-A consumer's guide to CHELATION THERAPY and other Heart-Savers. Harold & Arline Brecher. 1. 61 year old patient was suffering from peripheral vision due to diabetic retinopathy and could not drive. Dr. Michael Schachter (New York) started him on Chelation therapy. After just four treatments there was 50% improvement in his vision. His ophthalmologist was astounded! This patient almost legally blind now could drive his car again. 2. This 82 year old lady could no longer read, knit or watch TV and suffered great depression and anger due to her limitations. She started Chelation treatments out of desperation. After her fifth treatment she happen to glance outside her bedroom window and noticed her neighbor's dog running across her front lawn. Eureka! she screamed with joy and thanked God and ran outside to see the flowers, blue sky and started shouting with joy to a pleasant surprise of her neighbors! 3. 86 year old man in Texas, could not recognize his wife any more after 61 years of marriage. Dr. Fox cured him with Chelation treatments and this man was normal to celebrate his diamond wedding anniversary. 4. This 68 year old lady almost had lost her mind. She could not remember things. She would go upstairs to get something and forget the reason. She would go to mailbox and open the letter just put there for mailing. Family decided to seek legal advice to declare her incompetent. They were afraid she might hurt herself. Then a neighbor suggested to try Chelation. For next three months with this treatment she gradually started to come out of her condition till she recovered fully with her memory intact and became the loving person she was! 5. James had a terrible memory loss and even could not remember his own name. After just six Chelation treatments his mental faculties were fully restored. He began giving lectures about Chelation benefits to his fellow retirement village residents. 6. 1980 study undertaken by swiss scientists from institution of radiation therapy and nuclear medicine at the university of Zurich comes to a dramatic conclusion: Chelation with EDTA cuts the incidence of Cancer by 90%. My personal story: Recently I took 6 additional EDTA Chelation treatments. One a week. I had amazing positive results. I was on 50 mg of Losartan for B.P. and 20 mg of Lipitor for my Cholesterol before the treatment. After the six treatments I quit my BP medications and it has been two months now my BP is normal. I reduced my Lipitor to 10 mg per day. My Lipid profile was excellent after the Chelation. My total Cholesterol dropped from 187 to 140 and Triglycerides dropped from 199 to 119 and LDL bad cholesterol dropped from 92 to 72. I am amazed I am off the BP prescription. My primary doctor does not know about chelations I took. However he was very happy with my lipid Profile and BP. P.S. You may get a laugh at what I am about to tell you. However there is more truth to this than you may know. I read some where monkeys do not have heart problems. The secret is practice walking on your four like the little kids do before they learn to balance on their feet and learn to walk. So walk or crawl on floor inside your house over the carpet areas, including going up the stairs few times a day as an adult on your two feet and two hands. At first you may be out of breath if you are a older person but stay with it and slowly practice it daily. Apart from getting a laugh, You will benefit. ?

Toxic Interactions Book Review:

Toxic Interactions is a collection of papers that discusses the basic principles behind the mechanism of toxicological interactions. This book deals with interacting chemicals and their effects on certain exposed organs or molecules. Concerning discussion of the principles, contributed papers explain the role of xenobiotic biotransformation processes in inactivating reactive intermediates of toxicants. Other authors discuss the effects of endogenous molecules and the consequences of chemically induced depletion of protective agents, as well as the pharmacokinetic principles that affect chemical interactions. Several authors also review experiments on the types of chemicals that produce or increase the degree of toxicity. The text reviews the results of liver and kidney injuries from exposure to two or more chemicals, while other papers focus on lung and heart toxicity. For example, direct mechanism of cardio toxicity includes toxicity due to an increase in plasma concentrations of the compound, or as in latent cardiac toxicity that is a product of another action on another system of organs. Professors in pharmacology, practitioners of general medicine, specialists or researchers dealing with microchemistry, toxicology or drug therapy will find this reference valuable.

Copper in Drinking Water Book Review:

The safety of the nation's drinking water must be maintained to ensure the health of the public. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is responsible for regulating the levels of substances in the drinking water supply. Copper can leach into drinking water from the pipes in the distribution system, and the allowable levels are regulated by the EPA. The regulation of copper, however, is complicated by the fact that it is both necessary to the normal functioning of the body and toxic to the body at too high a level. The National Research Council was requested to form a committee to review the scientific validity of the EPA's maximum contaminant level goal for copper in drinking water. Copper in Drinking Water outlines the findings of the committee's review. The book provides a review of the toxicity of copper as well as a discussion of the essential nature of this metal. The risks posed by both short-term and long-term exposure to copper are characterized, and the implications for public health are discussed. This book is a valuable reference for individuals involved in the regulation of water supplies and individuals interested in issues surrounding this metal.

Environmental Medicine Book Review:

People are increasingly concerned about potential environmental health hazards and often ask their physicians questions such as: "Is the tap water safe to drink?" "Is it safe to live near power lines?" Unfortunately, physicians often lack the information and training related to environmental health risks needed to answer such questions. This book discusses six competency based learning objectives for all medical school students, discusses the relevance of environmental health to specific courses and clerkships, and demonstrates how to integrate environmental health into the curriculum through published case studies, some of which are included in one of the book's three appendices. Also included is a guide on where to obtain additional information for treatment, referral, and follow-up for diseases with possible environmental and/or occupational origins.

Cardio Crime Book Review:

Heart disease is the number one killer of Americans. It is predicted that the cost of treating heart disease for Americans will reach a staggering $800 billion per year by 2030. An inexpensive cure for heart disease exists, but the FDA has recently banned several companies from marketing this cure. "Cardio Crime" is an expose of how large institutions such as the AMA, AHA and FDA, will protect their self interest and stifle innovative health care therapies even if the evidence strongly points to safety and efficacy.

The Toxin Solution Book Review:

Eliminate avoidable toxins, mitigate the effects of those you can’t avoid, and enjoy a longer life with this essential health guide from a pioneer in integrative medicine, Dr. Joe Pizzorno—the author, teacher, practitioner, and founder of Bastyr University, the country’s first and largest fully accredited university of natural medicine. Dr. Joe Pizzorno is convinced that lifelong good health rests on two key determinants: your exposure to toxins and your ability to process them in your body. While lifestyle, diet, and genetics all play a major role in well-being, many symptoms of declining health and chronic disease are rooted in toxic overload—our exposure to a barrage of chemicals, heavy metals, radiation, electromagnetic frequencies, and pollution that are the byproducts of modern life. While the human body has an innate capacity to detoxify, it cannot cope with the elevated levels of toxins we are exposed to today. Most alarmingly, this toxic overload has helped transform once rare diseases into epidemics affecting people of all ages. In The Toxin Solution, Dr. Pizzorno provides the proven detox and tailored methods he has developed to heal toxic overload and restore health in just eight weeks. With this essential guide you will learn how to: Avoid toxins in food and the products you use; Mend your gut and prepare for detox; Support your body in releasing the chemicals; Repair some of the damage toxins have caused. Fortunately, our bodies have a tremendous capacity for healing and recovery. With The Toxin Solution you will discover how releasing and avoiding toxins can help you to feel better today—and every day for the rest of your life.

Honolulu Heart Program Book Review:

The Director of this study, Abraham Kagan, has comprehensively summarized the design and main finndings of the study in this book. The Honolulu Heart Program compared and contrasted ethnic Japanese men living in different cultural environments--Honolulu and mainland Japan--assessed their relative risk factors. The study supported many of the existing views on risk factors but also showed suprising trends. One of the trends shows moderate alcohol consumption is a preventative factor. In recent years the risk factors for cardiovascular diseases have become common knowledge. The recently completed Honolulu Heart Program is the largest targeted study to evaluate scientifically such risk factors.

Role of Environmental and Genetic Effect in Cardiomyopathy Book Review:

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the US and other parts of the world. Various concurrent risk factors are associated with the ever-rising prevalence of heart diseases. Cardiovascular diseases are resulted from a complex interaction between environmental and genetic factors. Although environmental factors play an important role in heart disease, genetic factors are key determinants as well. In this dissertation research, I examined compromised cardiac geometric and contractile function in particular in the form of cardiomyopathies caused by environmental toxic stress, genetic mutation-induced insulin resistance and maternal obesity. Environmental risk factors are known to contribute to heart diseases. Among the environmental toxins, paraquat, a widely used non-selective herbicide, induces cardiotoxicity leading to myocardial injury and contractile dysfunction. Ablation of the essential post-receptor insulin signaling molecule Akt2 ablation conferred insulin resistance which is associated with high incidence of heart disease. Finally, maternal overnutrition and maternal obesity have been shown to contribute to the obesity pandemics in the 21st century and represent a good example for the interaction between environment and genetics, which negatively impact fetal heart development and cardiac health later on in life. Autophagy is a highly regulated intracellular lysosomal-mediated catabolic process which degrades aged, damaged or dysfunctional proteins, intracellular organelles and cytoplasmic components for maintaining cellular homeostasis. Autophagy is a double-edged sword, in some cases it acts as an adaptive response to stress for organismal survival, whereas in other cases it may promote cell death. Autophagy plays an essential role in cardiac homeostasis. Under normal conditions, basal level of autophagy is crucial for organelle turnover. Autophagy levels may be either up- or down-regulated in response to stresses such as ischemia/reperfusion, environmental toxins, insulin resistance and high caloric intake, contributing to cardiac remodeling and heart failure. Thus, the overall aim for my PhD research was to use autophagy as a cellular survival/death regulatory mechanism to examine the role of environmental and genetic factors in myocardial dysfunction and ultimately heart disease under various pathological conditions including paraquat toxicity and Akt2 deletion-induced insulin resistance. In order to examine the influence of maternal obesity on fetal sheep cardiomyocyte contractile and intracellular Ca2+ transient function, I established a novel method of assessment on fetal sheep cardiomyocyte function. First, my data indicated that paraquat-induced cardiac dysfunction was associated with excessive autophagy, which was ameliorated by AMPK deficiency. Furthermore, my data revealed that downregulation of autophagy from AMPK deficiency was mediated through AMPK-TSC2-mTORC1-ULK1 pathway. Secondly, I evaluated the effect of Akt2 ablation induced insulin resistance on diabetic cardiomyopathy, with a focus on the role of apoptosis and autophagy. I found that Akt2 knockout-induced insulin resistance caused cardiac anomalies was mediated via suppressed autophagy and activated apoptosis by decreased FOXO1 and increased p38 MAPK activity, which was effectively attenuated by the mTOR-independent inducer of autophagy trehalose. More intriguingly, activation of FOXO1 which facilitates the expression of autophagy related genes; and inhibition of p38 MAPK which suppresses the activity of Atg9, seem to be involved in trehalose-induced autophagy, in an mTOR-independent fashion. Finally, I successfully established a novel method for measuring mechanical and intracellular Ca2+ properties in fetal sheep cardiomyocytes. My data indicated that maternal obesity caused fetal sheep cardiomyocyte contractile dysfunction and disrupted intracellular Ca2+ homeostasis. Taken together, these findings provide some evidence to suggest that environmental and genetic factors play an important role in heart disease.
