Are coronary heart disease treatments – medications - magic or myth?
Trouble is that these "magic MIRACLE" medications were intended for short term use. But they are now, instead, being given, "for the rest of your life."
We are now taking these pills against the problems of lifestyle, diet and the degeneration of aging itself.
That's like patching a hole in a weak, leaky bucket instead of strengthening its structure. This leaky bucket gets harder and harder to fix!
But in spite of your handful of pills, you are still likely to get congestive heart failure, against which there is no more pill!
Why did heart failure rates increase astronomically?
Is it a coincidence that congestive heart failure in the USA increased by 220 % during the 12 years when blood pressure meds first became used extensively? 1
Trouble is, that when you keep taking these pills to “fix” this situation long-term, you are setting a dangerous course!
Here's what happens:
The drugs used as coronary heart disease treatments ALTER YOUR NATURAL BODY FUNCTIONS. Of course, they are initially intended to get you over a crisis!
But if your doctor has no plan to take you off them, the drug(s) will express their “effects” on the rest of your body, causing serious problems.
Especially as you get older, these medications add stress, so you don't feel so good! Trouble is that your doctor will likely just say -- "its not the meds -- you're just getting old!"
You have been told that statin drugs for high cholesterol are harmless? Not so!
Did you know that after only a few weeks of using statins these begin to block the production of STEM CELLS in your body?
Stem cells are the regenerative cells of our organs and tissues. Blocking your stem cells SPEEDS UP AGING. 2
The bottom line is, that taking a long-term medication which alters any of your natural body functions is dangerous.
High Blood Pressure meds? Most, including calcium channel blockers should be used temporarily, never, indefinitely. 4
The dangers of taking calcium channel blockers? (e.g. Verapamil, nifedipine diltiazem - brand names: Cardizem, Calan, Dilacor, Adalat, Procardia, Verelan)
Susan Ross writes in the Clinical Pharmacy Review:
1) the "contractile processes" of the heart and smooth muscle 2) the initiation of action in cardiac conducting cells 3) the storage and use of energy in the myocardium, are all dependent upon the presence of calcium."
If you have to take anti hypertensive drugs, know which ones are most effective at a low dosage. 5
NOTE: If you are taking these drugs, work with your physician to gradually come off them. Stopping suddenly may cause a "rebound effect," making things worse.
You will be rewarded with your persistence with energy and vitality!
The modern Medical MYTH:
That Blood pressure medications are harmless, that statin cholesterol drugs are good for you and that blood clot meds don’t cause serious problems long term.

MYTH that there is no REVERSING Heart Disease!
1. The epidemic of congestive heart failure coincides with the increased use of hypertensive drugs. In 1979 there were 377,000 hospitalizations for congestive heart failure in the US. Only 12 years later, in 1992, that number had risen to 822,000...a 220% increase.
2. The study revealed that, after only a few weeks of use, statins “prevented stem cells from performing their main functions, to reproduce and replicate other cells in the body to carry out repairs…[statins also] prevented stem cells from generating new bone and cartilage…[and] increased ageing.”
3. Calcium channel blockers include: Amlodipine (Norvasc), Diltiazem (Cardizem, Tiazac and others) Felodipine, Isradipine, Nicardipine, Nifedipine (Adalat CC, Afeditab CR, Procardia) Nisoldipine (Sular) Verapamil (Calan, Verelan)
