I'm not usually inclined to comment without invitation, but the problems that jknospir are having seem classic to me, if I am right. First and foremost, if he has any root canals, they need to come out yesterday, and they need to be extracted properly. The best supplementation and nutrition will often be absolutely useless in the face of this source of dental toxicity. If he is absolutely certain there are no root canals (sometimes people don't know or forget, and they are apparent on a dental X-ray), then he needs a good dentist to look for other subclinically infected teeth. If there are any lucent spaces around teeth consistent with abscesses, they need to be extracted. Periodontal disease needs to be addressed as well. Water pik with some warm water and hydrogen peroxide usually resolves even advanced cases and subsequently maintains the gums in a much healthier state. If he has implanted teeth, serious consideration should be given to having these properly extracted as well, especially if none of the other possible sources of dental infection/toxicity are present. "The Roots of Disease" covers all of this in much more detail.
Anyone who is contemplating extensive dental work should first be completely comfortable with their decision. As in don't believe me, examine the evidence and make your own decision. No health care practitioner is always correct, and what I am offering here is certainly not a specific consultation on jknospir. All of this represents guidelines that I would offer to anyone, sight unseen, due to the nature of the science and the pathophysiology of atherosclerosis.
If there are absolutely no questions of dental toxicity (and I would very, very seriously doubt that there are none, as his atherosclerosis is currently in what I term a viciously aggressive phase), then gut toxicity needs to be addressed. If he is not having one or more stools daily, then this needs to addressed promptly. Proper food combinations are essential and there should be the routine ingestion of enough sodium ascorbate to assure this minimal bowel activity. Two or more bowel movements daily would be optimal.
If none of the above applies, then intravenous vitamin C for a while (as a loading dose) should be considered, with 3 to 5 grams of liposome encapsulated vitamin C daily to go along with his current regimen. I would certainly not rely on any of the homemade liposome C, either. The LivOn product is costly because it is difficult to produce a high quality, stable, and properly encapsulated product. The reasoning is that there needs to be, at least initially, a large "gradient" of vitamin C to allow penetration of old plaque
and permit increasing levels of the C to start accumulating inside the artery).Vitamin D3 should be supplemented to maintain a level of 60 to 80 ng/cc.
All forms of calcium should be avoided as supplementation, and milligram (not
microgram) doses of K2 should be taken. Probably 600 to 1,000 mg of magnesium glycinate should be added (which will also help the bowels, if that was in fact a problem). Milk and most dairy foods (except butter) should be regularly avoided. A regular dose of nattokinase would probably a good idea as well.
If his mouth is pristine and all of this is being done already, then I have to confess to being clueless, at least until some further inspiration hits my
one ruptured while I was “shoveling snow”. I drove to the hospital and was admitted with all the typical symptoms except sweating.
This kind of says it all!!
Take your time Doc I seem to have escaped Reaper again!I have to confess to being clueless, at least until some further inspiration hits my brain.
Dr Laragh says that essential hypertension exists in two forms. The first form is low renin hypertension, occuring in about a third of hypertensives. This is called Volume (V) hypertension. The plasma rennin activity PRA test shows low renin (less than 0.65 ng/m/hr) and the "water pills" such as the thiazides and calcium channel blockers work best for this type of low renin hypertension.
The second type is high renin hypertension, occurring in the other two thirds of hypertensives, is labeled (R) for Renin Hypertension, and the PRA levels are greater than 0.65 ng/m/hr. This hypertension is due to the renin-angiotensin system, and the newer drugs such as the ACE Inhibitors (angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors) and Beta Blockers work best for this type.

The surge in numbers of heart attack victims after snowstorms is mainly due to couch potatoes who do not get regular exercise, subjecting themselves to sudden, unaccustomed, heavy exertion, without pacing themselves or warming up or knowing their limitations.ofonorow wrote:Johnwen took the time to explain why snow shoveling is dangerous, especially for heart patients.

I didn't know you could get a fat free half/half coffee creamer. Is that with that patented indegistible fat ingredient? The information quoted suggests a possible deficiency in vitamin A or one or more of the healthy fats.jknosplr wrote:Not currently taking any K2 or magnesium glycinate.
Fat free creamer half/half in my coffee no (trans fat) and minimal amounts of cheese, no butter, no nattokinase either.
