High Desert Heart Institute – Nurses Interview!

High Desert Heart InstituteMore and more information is being released about the High Desert Heart Institute study, the most comprehensive human clinical trial ever conducted on a nutritional supplement. It involved 33 high risk congestive heart failure patients at the High Desert Heart Institute. The patients’ ages ranged from 43 to 90 and 60% of them were on a heart transplant list. All patients were pharmacologically and medically managed to the maximum so that there was nothing further that could be done for them.

The nutrition supplement used for this groundbreaking clinical trial was ProArgi-9 Plus. This product uses an integrative L-arginine and L-citrulline combination with other heart and cardiovascular healthy ingredients. Patients were given 2 scoops in the morning and 2 scoops in the evening.

The Results Of The High Desert Heart Institute Study Were Remarkable!

By the end of the 90 day study all patients were removed from the heart transplant list. All had recovered normal lives and were no longer candidates for heart transplants. All were able to either completely eliminate or greatly reduce the drugs they were taking.

The following video contains a short overview of this study, a short audio interview with Dr. Siva Arunasalam (the Founder and Director of the High Desert Heart Institute), and a short exchange between John Hewlett and two of the medical assistants who directly interacted with the patients of this study.

Please watch this video. I’ll have some short comments to make after you’ve seen it.

There were four items that stood out for me in this video:

Item 1 – All patients were able to eliminate or greatly reduce the drugs they were taking. The ProArgi-9 Plus made a significant difference in their lives and their cardiovascular system.

Item 2 – The verbal responses of the two medical assistants. Stacy said, “. . . they’re having a life again . . .” Jeanna said, “. . . to have their lives changed around . . .” Isn’t this beautiful. To help people live lives in wellness rather than sickness.

Item 3 – Over 7,000 points of data where collected making this the most comprehensive human trial ever conducted on a nutritional supplement. Here’s the list of tests performed:

  • Complete Metabolic Panels
  • Complete Blood Count
  • Hemoglobin 90 Day Test
  • Full Lipid Panel
  • Vitamin D3 Levels
  • Microalbumin Test
  • Plac Test
  • Liver Function Tests
  • B-Naturetic Peptide Levels
  • C-Reactive Protein
  • Echocardiogram
  • Cardio Dynamic Analysis
  • 6 Minute Walk Test
  • Coronary Calcium Scores
  • Coronary CT Scans
  • Angio IV Contrast
  • Ankle Brachial Index
  • Cardio Pulsewave Analysis
  • Doppler Echo
  • Blood Oxygen Saturation Levels

Item 4 – This video is just the “tip of the iceberg” of information that will be coming from this study. The “remarkable” results have already impacted the treatment protocols at the High Desert Heart Institute! When this study is finally published it will have a significant effect on how treatment programs are viewed for a wide range of cardiovascular issues.

You may have noticed in the above video that there was a reference to one of the patients of this study. His name is Angelo Cici. I edited his interview with John Hewlett into a separate video and blog post. To watch this interview please click on High Desert Heart Institute – Angelo Cici Interview!

Dr. J. Joseph Prendergast Video!

Dr. Joseph PrendergastI came across this short but very interesting video of Dr. J. Joseph Prendergast.  For those who don’t know Dr. Joe (as he prefers to call himself), he is the product formulator of ProArgi-9 Plus.  Dr. Joe is Board Certified in Internal Medicine as well as Endocrinology and Metabolism.  He is an expert in integrative L-arginine therapy and has been using this type of therapy in his practice since 1991.

Due to family heredity Dr. Joe was diagnosed at the age of 37 with severe atherosclerosis or hardening of the arteries. It was estimated that he had the cardiovascular system of an 80 year old individual.  This led him on a quest to find a solution to his health problem.  Using cutting edge research from Dr. John Cooke and Nobel Prize winning science from Dr. Louis Ignarro and others, Dr. Joe began to work on L-arginine / L-citrulline formulations; formulations that would positively impact the health of the endothelial cells and their ability to repair themselves and produce Nitric Oxide.

The results not only benefited Dr. Joe, by reversing his atherosclerosis, but also his patient population of diabetics who had been suffering from cardiovascular issues.  Prior to his discoveries on how to effectively use L-arginine and L-citrulline, Dr. Joe use to refer many of his patients for by-pass surgery.  Since becoming an expert in integrative L-arginine therapy this has changed dramatically.  In fact, Dr. Joe makes the following statement in this video:

“. . . 80% of the people have diabetes and in 17 years we have had no problems with strokes, no problems with heart attacks, I’ve not even had any admissions in 17 years.  So this is a striking example in how we can use this product for real power for health. . . “

I would ask you to think about that.  Over the last 17 years Dr. Joe has had no admissions to the hospital for cardiovascular disease.  This is remarkable when you consider that most of his patients are diabetics.  It was so remarkable that the American Diabetes Association awarded Dr. Joe the Father of the Year award for 2008.

Thank you for taking the time to watch this short but powerful video.  I’d like to leave you with one important question:

How would your life change if you where one of Dr. Joe’s patients, especially if you’re a diabetic?

I’ll let you answer that question privately.  I want to thank Dr. Joet for taking his personal health challenge, combining it with cutting edge vascular research, Nobel Prize winning science, and proven clinical results to create ProArgi-9 Plus. A product that has helped both him and thousands of others improve their health.

Dr. Siva Interview!

Dr. Siva ArunasalamOn Saturday, January 23, 2010 Dr. Siva Arunasalam, the Founder and Director of the High Desert Heart Institute gave his first public presentation of the groundbreaking results from the High Desert Heart Institute Study.  This study evaluated the effects of the nutritional supplement ProArgi-9 Plus on the health of 33 congestive heart failure patients.  The results of the study were “remarkable” in how a proper L-arginine and L-citrulline combination, with other heart healthy ingredients, can make positive changes in the cardiovascular system. 

During the weekend event, John Hewlett of the ComoCardio Institute conducted a 15 minute video interview with Dr. Siva.  While this video is posted on the ComoCardio website, I wanted to share it with my audience.  

John Hewlett conducts a wonderful interview that shows a gifted health practitioner who is dedicated to finding methods that can enhance the health of his patience so that stent surgeries can be avoided.

Dr. Louis Ignarro – Nobel Prize Laureate

Preventing and Reversing Cardiovascular Disease thru Nitric Oxide!

In 1998 Dr. Louis Ignarro shared the Nobel Prize in Medicine with two other American scientists for the discovery of Nitric Oxide and how it is the master signaling molecule for the cardiovascular system.  Dr. Ignarro has over 30 years of research in Nitric Oxide.  He firmly believes that Nitric Oxide can both prevent as well as reverse cardiovascular disease. 

How important is preventing and reversing cardiovascular disease?

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death for both the United States and the world.  Over 60 million Americans have some form of cardiovascular disease.  Heart disease is 12 times more deadly to women than breast cancer.  As you can see by these statistics preventing and reversing cardiovascular disease could make a huge impact on life expectancies especially if it was your own life.

The American Health Journal produced a 30 minute feature on Dr. Ignarro and his work with Nitric Oxide.  This feature can be found on YouTube.  Whoever posted this feature divided it into 3 parts and misspelled Dr. Ignarro’s name (Ignarrao instead of Ignarro).  I wanted to bring all three parts into one blog post.    

The information is excellent.  In Dr. Ignarro’s own words he will tell you how Nitric Oxide and the amino acid L-Arginine can prevent and reverse heart disease naturally to age proof your cardiovascular system.    

Part 1 – Please be patient with the first 45 seconds since it contains a promo for Western University and the lead in to the American Health Journal.  As Dr. Ignarro is introduced, he takes us back to when he received the Nobel Prize in Medicine.  After he shares his feelings about this high honor Dr. Ignarro talks about Nitric Oxide.  How it lowers blood pressure, prevents strokes and heart attacks, improves blood flow to the organs, acts as a vasodilator, protects against coronary artery disease, lowers bad cholesterol levels, and is the body’s natural way to protect against heart disease.  This video abruptly ends and is picked up in Part 2.  Total time is 8:58.

Part 2 – Dr. Ignarro’s completes his discussion about how the body uses the essential amino acid L-arginine to product Nitric Oxide.  How a deficiency in Nitric Oxide is really a deficiency in L-arginine.  Then Dr. Andrew Myers is introduced and he discusses how the endothelial cells regulate the production of Nitric Oxide.  Dr. Ignarro returns to discuss all the different benefits of Nitric Oxide such as keeping the blood vessels healthy, preventing blood clots, maintaining blood pressure, maintaining the normal balance between HDL (good cholesterol) and LDL (bad cholesterol), and the necessity of Nitric Oxide for the prevention of erectile dysfunctionThe segment that I found most interesting was how Nitric Oxide facilitates memory and learning.  Dr. Ignarro even discusses how Nitric Oxide can restore memory and help in Alzheimer’s disease.  Total time is 9:06.

Part 3 – For some reason the sound is a bit off in this segment so please don’t let it distract you.  Dr. Ignarro discusses the importance of diet and vitamins especially the antioxidants found in garlic and green tea.  He talks about the importance of exercise and how exercise has been shown to boost or stimulate Nitric Oxide production.  And, he concludes by talking about his book NO More Heart Disease and how he tried to communicate the science of Nitric Oxide at a level everyone could understand and apply.  Total time is 8:50.

Dr. Ignarro’s Passion!

As you can see and hear from these three videos Dr. Ignarro passionately believes that Nitric Oxide can prevent and reverse heart disease.  He firmly believes that Nitric Oxide is the body’s natural way to protect against cardiovascular disease and without side effects.  Dr. Ignarro and I both share a common goal.  That goal is to educate as many people as possible on the health benefits of an effective L-arginine/Nitric Oxide protocol so that they can work with their physician to help prevent and/or reverse heart disease.

Together we can work to save a million lives!

No More Heart Disease Videos

At one time heart disease was the number one fear of most people.  Then came cancer and today most people would identify Alzheimer’s disease as their number one fear.  Yet as these different diseases have had a significant impact on the health of our nation, heart disease is still the number one cause of death for both men and women. 

To help you understand both the severity of heart disease, and the potential for a remarkable reversal to the devastating effects of this disease, my two friends Paul Conterio and Richard Logsdon have developed a professional audio/visual presentation.  This presentation is broken down into three parts.  Just click on each image for that video section to play!

No More Heart Disease Part 1

No More Heart Disease Video Part 1In 5 minutes and 21 seconds this video will show you the sobering impact that cardiovascular disease has and continues to have on the health of both men and women.  We all remember September 11, 2001 when terrorists killed 2,974 innocent men, women, and children.  This act brought our nation to a standstill.  It impacted the United States and the World in general.  Yet, everyday is a 9/11 in America because approximately 2,500 people die of heart disease each and every day. 

 

The terrorist is cardiovascular disease.  Loved ones and families are brought to a standstill and the impact is felt through out our communities.  This video will help you realize that heart disease is 12 times more deadly to women than breast cancer; and more deadly in one year than the combined total of all deaths from all the wars America has fought in.    

 

Watch this video to understand the scope of this deadly problem in America and world wide.

 

 

No More Heart Disease Video Part 2No More Heart Disease Part 2

So what’s the answer to stopping cardiovascular disease and its deadly effects on men and women?  Part 2 presents a direct answer to this threat.  In fact, the answer won a Nobel Prize. 

 

Since 1901 the Nobel Prize has been award to individuals who have made a major impact on our society.  Of particular note are four Nobel Prize winners that have had a tremendous influence on the health of people world wide.  They are: 

  • 1901 – Wilhelm Conrad Rontgen for the discovery of X-rays!
  • 1923 – Frederick Banting and John Macleod for the discovery of insulin!
  • 1945 – Sir Alexander Fleming, Ernst Boris Chain and Sir Howard Walter Florey for the discovery of penicillin!
  • 1998 – Robert F. Furchgott, Louis J. Ignarro and Ferid Murad for their discoveries concerning nitric oxide as a signaling molecule in the cardiovascular system! 

 

Most people have had an x-ray taken at some time in their life.  If you’re a diabetic than you understand how critical insulin is to your health.  And, at some point in time, you most likely received penicillin to keep an infection in check or eliminated it completely.  However, most people have never heard of Nitric Oxide yet it has the power to prevent cardiovascular disease and do it without drugs or surgery. 

 

 

Watch this video and see why Dr. Louis J. Ignarro’s book entitled NO More Heart Disease is a national bestseller.

 

No More Heart Disease Video Part 3

No More Heart Disease Part 3

This video will show you how your body’s endothelial cells, which line your blood vessels, can be your lifesaver from heart disease. 

Your body has approximately 100,000 miles of blood vessels.  The proper understanding of their health, especially the health of your endothelial cells, is critical to the prevention of heart disease.  Central to this whole process is your body’s ability to produce Nitric Oxide which is regulated by the endothelial cells.  The amino acid L-arginine is the source your endothelial cells use to create nitric oxide. 

How effective is L-arginine and nitric oxide in preventing heart and cardiovascular disease?  Dr. J. Joseph Prendergast is on the cutting edge of this combination.  The results, especially for his large patient population of diabetics, are nothing short of miraculous. 

Watch this video to learn how Dr. Prendergast has virtually eliminated the need for cardiovascular surgery in his practice.

This blog is designed to educate you and provide you with cutting edge information that can have a significant impact on your cardiovascular health.  Dr. Ignarro’s book NO More Heart Disease is available thru Amazon.com. 

Dr. Prendergast formulated ProArgi-9 Plus and I’ve provided a link to give you more information about this product. 

These are resources that can make a positive difference in the health of your cardiovascular system.  They are resources that can save lives.  I hope you’ve enjoyed the three videos above and will share them with others. 

Together we can work to save a million lives!
