    Default Heart Issues: Experience, Advice and Insights

    Hi, Folks:

    This thread has been inspired by three recent reports from members: Foxie Loxie, Callista, and another who PMed me but wants to stay anonymous. They're entirely unrelated, but all reached me in a kind of synchronistic cluster.

    The heart is a remarkable biomachine, as none of us are likely to need reminding (*). It's exceptional in the even more remarkable human biomachine, inasmuch as there's
    1. the 'hardware' (the physical structure of the heart itself), and
    2. the control mechanism (the electrical impulses that make it beat, and beat properly).
    And, as some may not be aware, the heart can also be affected by viruses, causing it to malfunction despite everything else being in good shape.
    * Statistics to make us all think: (from http://pbs.org/wgbh/nova/heart/heartfacts.html)
    Your heart beats about 100,000 times in one day and about 35 million times in a year. During an average lifetime, the human heart will beat more than 2.5 billion times. Give a tennis ball a good, hard squeeze. You're using about the same amount of force your heart uses to pump blood out to the body.
    And we never even have to stop and think and do anything ourselves.

    If you consider your average domestic appliance, or computer, or maybe your car, it's more than extraordinary that this little biomachine works so very perfectly.

    Almost. But sometimes, parts wear out a little, or things can go wrong.

    ***

    Please read Foxie Loxie's very personal posts here and then here. She may greatly benefit from some help and informed advice.

    Her physical problem, she told us, was a condition diagnosed as what's sometimes called stiff heart. A ton of information about this can be searched for and found.

    ***

    Separately, Callista had been experiencing difficulties. She'll post in full on this thread herself over the weekend, but the briefest summary is that she had a heart virus called cytomegalo, which is a type of herpes.

    If unidentified, it can cause all kinds of other false test results, and false diagnoses of apparently serious conditions. Its effect on the heart (besides other endocrine functions) mimics heart attacks. She handled the whole thing homeopathically (cytomegalo C30 once a day, as well as taking 2 teaspoons of C60 per day), and a whole raft of very nasty symptoms quickly went away. She had an ECG, and her heart was diagnosed as 100% healthy — and it always had been.

    Interestingly (and see below), Callista notes that cytomegalo has been weaponized. Go figure.

    Now, of course, not everyone with a heart condition has fallen foul of a loose weaponized heart virus. But these things are pretty useful for us all to be aware of.

    ***

    Here's the third part, which links with the weaponization. I received a PM which I won't attribute, or quote in full, but it essentially said: (and I do have permission to share this info):
    Many of us are being hit with skipped beat heart issues. This assault started recently over the last year. The best chemical way to treat such is to obtain Mucinex DM. This anti-cough med stops the spasms which the energetic beaming is causing. They are targeting the vagus nerve to attack us. I've identified a few groups creating this assault.
    This is interesting, because I have a friend, in excellent physical shape, but prominent in the alternative field, who a few weeks ago was suddenly hit by a very alarming 3-hour tachycardia (weak fluttering pulse, over 200 per minute, causing dizziness or fainting) — right out of nowhere. A prolonged tachycardia like that can be serious. She had an ECG and an ultrasound scan, and her heart was perfect. The cause remains a mystery to her.

    Again, there can be 'real' causes of these things. Heart arrhythmia (irregular pulse) can be triggered by electrolyte or steroid imbalance, for example. So I'm NOT promoting paranoia here. But — it's good to be informed.

    ***

    Now, this is NOT a conspiracy thread. It's a solutions and support thread, first inspired by Foxie Loxie sharing her heart problem with us all. Even if some people ARE being targeted, there can be solutions for the effects. And there are CERTAINLY solutions, or available optimizations, for most naturally occurring heart conditions. That's the point.

    According to Dr. Bruce West, there is nothing more important for heart health than real, raw, whole food based B vitamins. The premier B vitamins are sold by Standard Process. They may be the only company that sells a B with vitamin B4. Our food supply is compromised for a variety of reasons, so we all need supplemental Bs, the full compliment of them. West claims most heart disease is a form of beri-beri.

    The heart is the easiest part of the body to heal, but it needs the right nutrients. It craves minerals and raw, unprocessed fatty acids. Real cod liver oil is miracle for heart health. Sadly, there are few companies that can manufacture it without denaturing it. Green Pastures is one that does it right.

    We can discuss all manner of remedies for health issues, but it must be understood that conventional medicine has nothing to offer but ineffective and dangerous drugs. They still pretend cholesterol is the culprit, when it has been shown conclusively that it is not.

    Of course no remedy or cure is worth it's salt unless we refrain from ingesting toxins and toxic food. Most reading this thread know what is being referred to. We are inundated with foul compounds, many of them pretending to be sustenance. Bad actors they are, tasting good, but offering nothing of value.

    Edit: Forgot stress. So many stressors in our lives. Stress upsets the Autonomic Nervous System, keeping us in a state of contraction. By nature and universal law, we should reside in a state of expansion. When cells are contracted ( a defense posture arising from stress) they are not communicating properly. They do not grow and flourish. The body shuts all systems down except for muscles that enable us to run away from the danger. Today, that danger is not a tiger or a bear or a threatening individual. It is road rage, worrying about divorce, a dying parent, a kid that acts up, test anxiety, or any number of other things that add up to a mountain of pressure that keeps us in fight or flight status. R e l a x and live. Find a way to mitigate the stress or your heart will suffer.

    Lisa Harrison reported about 4-6 weeks ago that she was admitted into the hospital because of heart attack symptoms. The doctors didn’t find anything. She was release the next day. Recently, she had another go around but elected to stay home.

    A nurse, who wished to remain anonymous, contacted her to say a lot of people are coming into the emergency room with the similar heart anomalies. Also a number of folks in Lisa’s ‘members group’ report the same.

    I'm following Dr. Stephen Sinatra's work* for a couple of years now and I recommend most people 100-300 mg Coenzyme Q10 eveyday for energy & healthy heart functions. There are more natural supplements recommended for heart, but none of them is as important as CoQ10.

    Be well everybody!

    My goal is prevention. I’m 3+ month into experimenting with C60. I detox on a regular basis, eat whole foods, drink filtered water (Berkey) & exercise.

    I take three supplements: I still have an occasional Ben and Jerry’s and do coffee.

    The Power of Food

    Prior to 1990, most people thought modestly about nutrition. But that year a page was turned. Dr. Dean Ornish, a young Harvard-training physician, showed that it is possible to actually reverse heart disease. Researchers had thought that artery disease was a one-way street. Narrowed vessels worsened over time, and surgery was the only way to reopen them. But, using a plant-based diet, along with other healthy lifestyle changes, Dr. Ornish showed that, indeed, narrowed arteries can gradually reopen, reversing damage that had accumulated over decades.

    As revolutionary as Dr. Ornish’s discovery was for the heart, it is potentially even more import for the brain. As you’ll recall, about 20 percent of all the blood flowing from the heart passes up the carotid and vertebral arteries to the brain, carrying oxygen and nutrients in the carrying wastes out. Wide-open arteries are exactly what the brain needs.

    Meanwhile, my research team tested the effect of a plant-based diet for obesity, diabetes, and cholesterol problems, all of which can harm the brain. In worked wonderfully. The participants slimmed down, their cholesterol levels dropped dramatically, their blood pressure improved, and many felt better than they had in years, Blood sugar control improved so much that some people with diabetes were able to stop their medications.

    Perhaps the biggest surprise was how our research participants felt about the diet change. After all, they were making what many would have thought was an enormous shift - throwing out the meat, dairy products, eggs, and oily foods. But they adapted quickly. They found delicious choices at restaurants and interesting new products at food store, and came to see feed in a whole new light. Their energy rebounded, and they felt great. They liked their new way of eating and are eager to keep it going permanently.

    Even so, there can be occasional missteps along the way. In a study testing a plant-based diet for weight loss, we asked volunteer to set …”

    Heart Disease in Women: Understand Symptoms and Risk Factors

    All women face the threat of heart disease. But becoming aware of symptoms and risks unique to women, as well as eating a heart-healthy diet and exercising, can help protect you.

    By Mayo Clinic Staff

    Although heart disease may often be thought of as a problem for men, heart disease is the most common cause of death for both women and men in the United States. One challenge is that some heart disease symptoms in women may be different from those in men. Fortunately, women can take steps to understand their unique symptoms of heart disease and to begin to reduce their risk of heart disease.

    Heart attack symptoms for women

    The most common heart attack symptom in women is some type of pain, pressure or discomfort in the chest. But it is not always severe or even the most prominent symptom, particularly in women. And, sometimes, women may have a heart attack without chest pain. Women are more likely than men to have heart attack symptoms unrelated to chest pain, such as:

    Neck, jaw, shoulder, upper back or abdominal discomfort (my emphasis)
    • Shortness of breath
    • Pain in one or both arms
    • Nausea or vomiting
    • Sweating
    • Lightheadedness or dizziness
    • Unusual fatigue

    These symptoms can be more subtle than the obvious crushing chest pain often associated with heart attacks. Women may describe chest pain as pressure or a tightness. This may be because women tend to have blockages not only in their main arteries but also in the smaller arteries that supply blood to the heart — a condition called small vessel heart disease or coronary microvascular disease.

    Women's symptoms may occur more often when women are resting, or even when they're asleep. Mental stress also may trigger heart attack symptoms in women.

    Women tend to show up in emergency rooms after heart damage has already occurred because their symptoms are not those usually associated with a heart attack, and because women may downplay their symptoms. If you experience these symptoms or think you're having a heart attack, call for emergency medical help immediately. Don't drive yourself to the emergency room unless you have no other options.

    Heart disease risk factors for women

    Although several traditional risk factors for coronary artery disease — such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure and obesity — affect women and men, other factors may play a bigger role in the development of heart disease in women. For example, risk factors may include:

    • Diabetes. Women with diabetes are at greater risk of heart disease than are men with diabetes.
    • Mental stress and depression. Women's hearts are affected by stress and depression more than men's. Depression makes it difficult to maintain a healthy lifestyle and follow recommended treatment, so talk to your doctor if you're having symptoms of depression.
    • Smoking. In women, smoking is a greater risk factor for heart disease in women than it is in men.
    • Inactivity. A lack of physical activity is a major risk factor for heart disease, and some research has found women to be more inactive than men.
    • Menopause. Low levels of estrogen after menopause pose a significant risk factor for developing cardiovascular disease in the smaller blood vessels (coronary microvascular disease).
    • Broken heart syndrome. This condition — often brought on by stressful situations that can cause severe, but usually temporary, heart muscle failure — occurs more commonly in women after menopause. This condition may also be called takotsubo cardiomyopathy, apical ballooning syndrome or stress cardiomyopathy.
    • Pregnancy complications. High blood pressure or diabetes during pregnancy can increase women's long-term risk of high blood pressure and diabetes and increase the risk of development of heart disease in the mothers.
Some research has found that if you had pregnancy complications such as high blood pressure or diabetes your children may also have an increased risk of heart disease in the future.

    Women with inflammatory diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis or lupus, may also have a higher risk of heart disease. Research is ongoing in other heart disease risk factors in women.

    Is heart disease something only older women should worry about?

    No. Women of all ages should take heart disease seriously. Women under the age of 65, and especially those with a family history of heart disease, need to pay close attention to heart disease risk factors.

    What can women do to reduce their risk of heart disease?

    Women can make several lifestyle changes to reduce the risk of heart disease, including:

    • Quit or don't start smoking.
    • Exercise regularly.
    • Maintain a healthy weight.
    • Eat a healthy diet that includes whole grains, a variety of fruits and vegetables, low-fat or fat-free dairy products, and lean meats. Avoid saturated or trans fat, added sugars, and high amounts of salt.

    Women also need to take prescribed medications appropriately, such as blood pressure medications, blood thinners and aspirin. And they'll need to better manage other conditions that are risk factors for heart disease, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes.

    My mother-in-law had heart attacks this past spring followed by a diagnosis of breast cancer. She couldn't be operated on for her tumors because of her heart condition. We have found that MMS (miracle mineral solution) lowers her heart rate considerably. MMS can also help fight viruses. Vitamin C (lipisomal is good) plus Lysine helps the heart function and helps clean the arteries. Niacin helps control chloresterol. Reasonable doses of organic iodine and ubiquonal coQ10 help. Pancreatic enzymes are excellent. Lastly, but not least, high CBD cannabis oil helps the heart heal, as well as stops cancer.

    I could write endlessly on this. I could post a million links backing it all up. But I'll just keep this nice and short.

    Personally I never really cared too much how the heart works or anything like that. Not in technical terms one might read in a medical journal anyway. I think the medical community has got it all wrong in their understanding. When your heart is failing, when you're having difficulty walking, talking, breathing and sleeping, you sense immediately what the heart does and doesn't do. In other words, the heart isnt really a "pump" as it's been described for so long; it's more like a battery.

    Anyway, all I was ever really concerned about is what works to fix it. The beauty of something like coenzyme q10 is that it works as a heart panacea. With an exception or 2, all heart issues are energy related, and are therefore mitochondria related. So, in short, it doesn't necessarily matter whether you have high blood pressure, mitral valve prolapse, irregular heartbeat, enlarged heart, or even congestive heart failure. All these conditions represent energy deficiencies. And the absolute quickest way to create energy for the mitochondria in the heart is with coenzyme q10, d ribose, carnitine, and magnesium. This approach is unrivalled. Heart failure patients are able to live full, active lives sometimes within weeks after taking these therapies . I know of no other therapy that even comes close. And I've tried them all...

    Things like juicing, reduction of sodium, exercise, avoiding poor dietary habits, avoiding smoking and booze, herbs and so forth are all very good suggestions. And I strongly recommend them. But in a critical situation the most important thing to do is take coq10. Then, add in ribose, carnitine and magnesium...

    ...these things work *directly* on the heart. *IMMEDIATELY*. The stuff I listed before these things work *indirectly*. In dire situations you want to take the most direct approach. And then, when feeling a bit better, add on the other stuff. After a while you'll know what works best for you.

    When I was having my issues, I had some docs say things like, you have to exercise, lose weight so forth. But here's the thing: YOU NEED ENERGY FIRST BEFORE YOU CAN DO THOSE THINGS. If your heart is energy deficient, those suggestions are only going to make things worse!

    There is a myth that all heart issues are related to clogged arteries. Very untrue. The heart muscle can get weak and feeble in many other ways. But if clogged arteries are your problem, I would still make coq10 your first priority. And then I would likely take cayenne powder to clear out my arteries. But there are many other ways to clear out arteries naturally, and I have a feeling many of our great members will list them here

    Sending loving intent to that heart of yours Foxie.x

    My ex husband, father of my teenage daughter, told me just 2 days ago he might have to go interstate for heart surgery.
    Fit as a bull, does not believe in anything that would be talked about here (ironically, considering what he has seen), and has never had a heart problem except suddenly, now.
    But he has seen unusual stuff. He has seen a shadow person walking about in an open country house with mental health patients he worked with a long time ago, he saw the stars block out with a black rectangle over his car as he returned late in his car one evening, alone, and in the middle of the countryside. And a few months ago, he saw what looked like a television screen shadow, emerge from the ground, hover in the middle of the room facing himself and his girlfriend as they watched tv, and then it just went back down into the floor. His girlfriend could not see it. He did not mention it as she is a mental health worker also, and such things don't exist of course except in the head, according to academia. He also had his bed coverings lift up and something get into bed next to him when he was in his early 20's. He could not see it, and there seemed to be nothing there. And his mum could see the ghosts. So I suppose he is into this sort of stuff in a way, in that he is aware of some of it, but ignores it in favor of a his career.

    Anyway, back to you Foxie, take it easy, sending you lots of love. xxxxooooo

    God I have tons of little anecdotes I could share here, but i'd quickly monopolize the thread. But here's one little thing that I just remembered that I'll share...

    When i was at my worst, I recall seeing all these doctors, taking all these tests. Somehow I knew it was all going to be futile. And it was.

    I kept telling everyone the issue was mitochondrial in nature; i knew it thru research and thru the therapies that eventually worked for me. But everyone thought I was nuts! See, when traditional docs can't find out what's wrong with you, they will simply chalk things up to 'anxiety' or something like that. And after a "learned" man in a white labcoat makes that statement about you, you lose all credibility. The people around you view you as a head case. I kept insisting that I knew what was wrong; sometimes even shouting it for emphasis....but that only made me seem even more unstable...

    (I was later vindicated when I sent my blood to Wales to be tested by Dr Sarah Myhill. She confirmed everything I'd been saying all along)

    ...so now you can trust no one and no one trusts you. Not only are you deathly sick, but now you have this sh!t to contend with. And yes, you do have anxiety! But you don't dare declare it because it would only validate those faulty theories about you. But the anxiety is due to the circumstances, not some inherent "disorder". No one will listen....

    Anyway, it was during this time that I realized something was very wrong with this world. This was the beginning of my journey. I took coenzyme q10, and it resurrected me...but no one was interested, and no one believed me.

    This was a pivotal moment:
    I recall being in Barnes n Noble, and I opened a book about the heart co written by doctors in the well known and well respected Cleveland Clinic. There was nothing in there about coq10. Nothing. Not a whisper.

    My heart sank. I knew the fix was in.

    I opened up a few more books, and q10 was either not mentioned or it was in passing, or it was suggested "more studies needed to be done to determine" this or that. But I knew there were studies. I knew it worked.

    This was my first exposure to the world "conspiracy ". And what a journey it's been.

    (Sorry if this doesnt belong here Bill. Maybe move to 'Here n now' if that's the csse)

    Wonderful!

    One thing that always made a huge impression on me was this: there were people that would come from all over the country, all over the world maybe, to see the so called experts at places like the Cleveland Clinic. But all they were getting were small variations of the same drug based treatment they'd get at home. And here I was, just some schmuck with a few bucks in his pocket, driving down to the local health food store to spend 20 bucks on the cure they were all looking for!(and all it took was a couple hours on the internet to find it!)

    From that point on I viewed everything as a sick joke. Everything was utterly absurd. The world was sick n twisted, and my natural inclination was to laugh at it, and myself. I dunno, maybe I've gone mad too. But that whole experience really shaped me..in so many ways

    no-one has yet commented on one of the most essential components to human health: vitamin E (available as capsules)-

    take/swallow 400 international units of vitamin E a day (swallowed with the meal containing the most saturated fats) and it's a real booster combating all sorts of health problems-

    Okay, here is a little known fact: Chondroitin, often thought of as strictly a joint therapy, is also a wonderful heart tonic. For what it's worth, I use this and it's very helpful.

    http://knowledgeofhealth.com/the-man...esterol-drugs/

    http://www.nutri-spec.net/article/chondroitin_sulfate.html

    https://drrichardstalksback.wordpres...oitin-sulfate/


    What "they" will do (and I do apologize Bill, I know you don't want this to get too conspiratorial. This'll be the last of it from me. this topic does "trigger" me a little) is hide things in plain site, and here i'm talking about things like hydrogen peroxide, baking soda, and chondroitin etc. "They" simply start brainwashing you with distracting associations from the time you're a youth on, i.e peroxide is for cuts, baking soda for baking, chondroitin for joints etc...

    All 3 of these things have wonderful health applications for the heart too! Research, research, research!!!

    Can you say more about Guinness? I'm being serious - in moderation, Guinness beer in particular gave me a very noticeable bump in energy. Not just when I was drinking it, but even the next day!

    Briefly: It's been almost 8 years this Xmas since my heart attack and quad bypass surgery and all the trials and tribulations that followed.

    Cut to the chase: 5 years off all meds and in the best health of my 'still getting younger' life.

    "In Human Heart, Cosmic Heart, Dr. Thomas Cowan presents a new way of understanding the body’s most central organ. He offers a new look at what it means to be human and how we can best care for ourselves―and one another."
    HumanHeartCosmicHeart.com
    Nov 3, 2016
    Thomas Cowan was a 20-year-old Duke grad―bright, skeptical, and already disillusioned with industrial capitalism―when he joined the Peace Corps in the mid-1970s for a two-year tour in Swaziland. There, he encountered the work of Rudolf Steiner and Weston A. Price―two men whose ideas would fascinate and challenge him for decades to come.

    Both drawn to the art of healing and repelled by the way medicine was―and continues to be―practiced in the United States, Cowan returned from Swaziland, went to medical school, and established a practice in New Hampshire and, later, San Francisco. For years, as he raised his three children, suffered the setback of divorce, and struggled with a heart condition, he remained intrigued by the work of Price and Steiner and, in particular, with Steiner’s provocative claim that the heart is not a pump. Determined to practice medicine in a way that promoted healing rather than compounded ailments, Cowan dedicated himself to understanding whether Steiner’s claim could possibly be true. And if Steiner was correct, what, then, is the heart? What is its true role in the human body?

    In this deeply personal, rigorous, and riveting account, Dr. Cowan offers up a daring claim: Not only was Steiner correct that the heart is not a pump, but our understanding of heart disease―with its origins in the blood vessels―is completely wrong. And this gross misunderstanding, with its attendant medications and risky surgeries, is the reason heart disease remains the most common cause of death worldwide.

    In Human Heart, Cosmic Heart, Dr. Thomas Cowan presents a new way of understanding the body’s most central organ. He offers a new look at what it means to be human and how we can best care for ourselves―and one another.
