For years, heart specialists have cleared clogged arteries more or less the way plumbers fix clogged pipes: by replacing them with bypass graft surgery or snaking them out with balloon angioplasty.
Atherosclerosis - a life-threatening disease that leads to a heart attack or stroke, has become a worldwide and difficult-to-control medical problem.
Because standard medicine does not know the exact reasons for the development of this terrible disease, it was officially pronounced "incurable." Yes, you heard right.
Of course, it can be treated, but a cure has not been found (yet). And, as it is not proven that atherosclerosis might regress, from medical standpoint, we can only slow down its progression with prescription drugs and some lifestyle changes in order to maintain the quality of patient's life.
Obviously, there are many different, often conflicting, medical theories of atherosclerosis formation, but NONE of them provides a way to successfully avoid or cure arteriosclerotic vascular disease (ASVD), except for surgery and/or widely prescribed medications that can just relieve the symptoms and prompt multiple side effects.
Pharmaceutical drugs, such as anticoagulants with known adverse effects, do NOT remove (dissolve) atherosclerotic blockages from the cardiovascular system. Working as blood-thinners, often required to be taken for life, they only diminish blood clotting (coagulation of blood) to reduce the risk or prevent a heart attack or stroke from happening...
And the same applies to other drugs: anti-cholesterol (some medicines target HDL, most conventional drug treatments reduce levels of LDL cholesterol), aspirin, diuretics, nitroglycerin, beta blockers, etc. used by hundreds of millions of men and women around the world to stimulate endothelial function and increase blood flow.
Bypass graft surgery, for instance, although quite an amazing piece of surgical revascularization, in the vast majority of cases is a classic example of conventional medicine being too much, too late and not treating the cause of the problem.
Why is that?
By attempting to remove plaque from plugged arteries, standard medical methods focus only on reducing the effects of the plaque after it has built up -- not on eliminating the factors which created the buildup in the first place (the cause).
Therefore, all medical approaches carry with them the same main shortcoming: removing obstructions from the diseased vessel walls and "restoring" impaired circulation does NOTHING to stop the underlying disease and its progression. As a result of this invasive partial fix, in time, new fatty narrowings or blockages occur in the arteries. A perfect example of vicious circle!
Not to mention the possible risks, the side effects and after effects, and the serious costs (in effort, time and money) the conventional treatments carry with them.
Obviously, standard medicine does "something" that most doctors know perfectly well is of limited help; but it is still being done maybe out of a sense of professional duty or out of desperate measures? Or maybe due to its (standard medicine) powerlessness over this terrible disease that kills, in the U.S. alone, 800,000 Americans each year in most productive periods of their lives?
Atherosclerosis is also presented by conventional medicine as one of the inevitable symptoms of… aging. In other words, we are doomed to this dreadful disease as very little, if any, can be done about it.
Are we really so helpless when it comes to atherosclerosis?!
Scarce but existing nutritional and medical evidence strongly indicates - not absolutely but with a very high order of probability - that the nutritional measures can halt and reverse the atherosclerotic processes in the body. So, as atherosclerotic plaque is controllable, the only questionable are the strategies used to achieve that.
Because all known and available strategies have their drawbacks, each of them should be treated equally. But the natural measures, as drug- and risk-free, should be given priority - instead of being ridiculed, rejected or even attacked by medical establishment.
Orthodox medicine completely ignores the fact that "a [medical] cure cannot be made by drugs, because a drug adds nothing to nutrition," as put it Dr. J. H. Tilden, M.D.
Up to date, there have not been the outcome studies to document that arterial cleansing does not work. And, what is more important, there has not been a single reported fatality due to arterial cleansing itself.
These two statements alone make arterial cleansing worth a closer look.
