The most impressive case we’ve had was an attorney. He was in his 80’s, but the guy looked 60. He took really good care of himself. I’d seen him for years. He came to see me one day to ask me about EECP. “Why didn’t you tell me about EECP?”
I said, “Why didn’t you tell me you were having memory problems?” People try to hide it. His memory was so bad he was using word recognition software to write his legal briefs. He went through a course of EECP, and his memory was dramatically better. He has continued to do maintenance and has improved even more.
He had a condition that he had never mentioned before. It’s a psychological thing where he couldn’t see people’s faces. He was working with George Green, a psychologist, to sync his brain waves at the same time he was doing EECP. Between these two therapies, he now can see people’s faces. The difference this made for him was that everybody thought he was like a cold fish. He would never acknowledge anybody because he couldn’t see their expressions. Now that he could see their faces, he could see their facial expressions and respond. I don’t know if that was the EECP or the brain wave syncing they were doing; he certainly was happy. And it was then much easier and enjoyable for him to continue his law practice.
He brought a book to me that I had not heard of. It was written by an Ivy League cardiologist, a woman by the name of Braverman, titled, Heal Your Heart with EECP. He handed me this book and said, “This lady sounds just like you. You need to read this book.”
I read the book that afternoon. Most of it was about the on-label use of EECP for heart patients. I found it interesting that this woman, this cardiologist, wrote that her whole life’s goal, ever since she was a little girl, was to be a professor at an Ivy League school. She did all of her cardiology and medicine training in Ivy League schools and then became a professor of medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, which is an Ivy League school.
In the book, she says she flew out to a clinic in California to see what they were doing with EECP. After flying back from the two weeks she had spent at this clinic, she was amazed at what she saw and decided to leave the University and open an office and start doing EECP. I think in the book she said she now has 6 or 8 clinics in Pennsylvania doing EECP. In the latter part of the book, she goes into all the off-label uses of EECP, which even amazed me – Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, erectile dysfunction – all kinds of problems that may actually be microcirculatory, that western medicine thinks are inflammatory today.
I think the microvascular theory is going to replace the macrovascular theory in the next 20 years. It’s just that there’s no money to be made by the pharmaceutical companies yet. If you have microvascular disease, conventional medicine can’t really do anything for you. You have to go to a physician who uses EECP and Chelation.
We’ve been doing EECP since, and I’m getting bolder now in recommending our protocol to people. It can be done in as short as 4 weeks if you do it 2 hours a day, though usually it is done 1 hour a day. For most of our patients, we didn’t see any difference in the end result – whether they went twice a week, every day, or twice a day. It’s a time problem for people. It’s an hour on the machine, two hours for the IV chelation. You can go twice a week and be done in four months, and then we evaluate the results.
We are now telling people to get Dr. Braverman’s book. We have copies in our office for our patients to look at. It is not me saying to my patient, “Here’s what you can do.” It’s a recognized professional who has credentials far better than mine who is saying the same thing. We explain to our patients that when EECP is used for memory loss, or you don’t fulfill the criteria that the FDA put in it originally, it’s off-label use, which is perfectly legal but means your insurance isn’t going to cover it; you have to pay out of pocket.
We’re getting more and more people coming in with memory problems. It’s probably the most common complaint that I hear now, behind “I have no energy”, or “I have an infection that isn’t getting better”. It seems to affect all ages. Reversing memory loss is the only thing that is holding my interest clinically now in terms of staying in practice, because it’s so fascinating to see this and to see the science coming out about the Alzheimer’s research community – with all the money in the journals and with these proteins and vaccines failing one right after the other. It’s not a biochemical problem. I think it’s a mechanical problem. I think it is simply the aging of the blood vessels due to sugar toxicity. That’s all it is.
Diabetes in its simplest explanation is accelerated aging from glucose toxicity. You read in the medical journals over the last few years that “conventional medicine” is confused because they don’t understand why diabetics have a much higher incidence of Alzheimer’s-like dementia than normal people. It’s the sugar. It’s new thinking which means you’ve got to go back to physiology.
I recently did a literature search, and there is now research being published in universities theoretically arguing that vascular disease may be due to compromised vasa vasorum in the blood vessel wall. They’re finally starting to get it. It will take 20 years for that to penetrate into clinical medicine to where they actually try to do something. I was encouraged by seeing that there are researchers starting to acknowledge this cause now.
On our website, we talk about glucose toxicity and how we approach memory loss with nutrients, homeopathics, EECP, and Chelation. We tell every patient we see that we don’t know if we can help them; all we can do is try.
The tragedy with most of them is that they’re trapped. They don’t have anywhere else to go. It’s a question of if you want to gamble and see if it will help, or just accept the fate of what’s going to happen to you. I try to be as unbiased as I can be with folks about things I do that other doctors don’t do. I try to point out that they’re asking me about something and that this is what I do.
