Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States, which resulted in 29 percent of all U.S. deaths, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
More than half (51 percent) of the people who died of heart disease in just one year were women.
Meanwhile, more than one-third (37 percent) of adults reportedly have two or more of the six risk factors for heart disease and stroke, which include:
High blood pressure
In all, heart disease is thought to cost well over $403 billion for health care services, medications and lost productivity, according to the CDC.
What Exactly is Heart Disease?
Heart disease is actually a general term used to describe various heart problems. The most common type of heart disease in the United States is coronary artery disease (CAD), which occurs when your heart's arteries buildup plaque and become hardened and narrowed. This reduces blood flow to the heart and can result in a heart attack.
Other common heart conditions include angina, heart failure, arrhythmia, peripheral artery disease and more.
Signs of Heart Disease
Conventional risk factors such as those listed above are well-known signs that you may be at risk of heart disease. However, there are many other, lesser known, symptoms that can also signal heart disease risk.
In fact, studies have found that up to 97 percent of women with acute heart disease experienced prodromal (pre-heart-attack) symptoms more than one month (and sometimes as much as two years) before the attack.
Changes in mood, including irritability, depression, anxiety and insomnia, according to researchers from the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia in Italy.
Elevated levels of inflammation-related substances in your body, including C-reactive protein, fibrinogen, and homocysteine.
Unusual fatigue and/or insomnia
Shortness of breath
Excessive fatigue can sometimes indicate the presence of heart disease in women.
Changes in appetite
Pressure in the chest, stomach, arms, back, neck or jaw
What Tests Can Reveal Your Heart Disease Risk?
There is much controversy over whether people with few risk factors need to have extensive testing for heart disease. Most experts agree that you should find out the following three numbers, and make sure they are within the healthy levels that your health care provider recommends:
Beyond these, another test sometimes encouraged is the C-Reactive Protein (CRP) test. Here is what the results tell you:
A CRP level lower than 1.0 mg/L indicates a low risk of developing heart disease
A CRP level between 1.0 and 3.0 mg/L indicates an average risk
A CRP higher than 3.0 mg/L indicates a high risk
There are numerous other tests out there as well, such as heart scans, stress tests, and electrocardiograms (EKGs), but only you and your health care provider can determine whether they are necessary.
The most important is a coronary calcium score. This one second scan can see if any plaque is forming in your heart arteries. It is a type of CAT scan. Widely available. This overcomes needing indirect blood tests, because you can literally and directly see the arteries.
Heavy metal testing, especially for lead is very important. The best test is a provoked urine sample using the Doctor’s Data testing kit.

According to award-winning, Board Certified Cardiologist and Internist, as well as the co-creator of the world famous "South Beach Diet," Dr. Roy Heilbron, "90% of everyone will die of Heart Disease or Cancer, but most people no longer need to die from either."

Chelation Therapy T.A.C.T. Study Findings Showed an Amazing:
18% IMPROVEMENT FOR HEART DISEASE
26% IMPROVEMENT FOR HEART DISEASE IF TAKEN WITH VITAMINS
39% IMPROVEMENT FOR DIABETIC HEART DISEASE
23% IMPROVEMENT FOR HEART ATTACKS AND STROKES
Dr. Roy Heilbron's T.A.C.T. Study Results Summation:
Chelation Therapy and Vitamins: 26% Improved
Overall improvement in heart health: 18%
Death reduced: 7%
Heart Attacks reduced: 23%
Hospitalizations reduced: 28%
Diabetic heart complications reduced: 39%
Heart Surgeries reduced: 19%
Strokes reduced: 23%
Over 1,700 patients participated in the 10 year study. Each patient must have had one or more prior heart attacks at least two years or more years prior to participating in the study. Most, if not all, of the patients were anticipated statistically to have another incidence (incidence being another heart attack or to die from a heart attack.)
What might this mean for a patient who has already had a heart attack or a stroke? Imagine the possibility of continuing to live without any major or minor heart surgery or the possibility of removing the cause of heart attacks, strokes, or even cancer, without highly invasive surgery that can cause injuries or even death.
When NIH’s Dr. Gervasio Lamas’ ground-breaking presentation of the T.A.C.T. Study results were given at the 2012 American Heart Association’s Scientific Sessions in Los Angeles, approximately 10,000 cardiologists attending fell suddenly totally silent as they were clearly stunned and unpleasantly surprised! All but a few of the cardiologists present had ever done Chelation Therapy or knew anything about it, and these T.A.C.T. Study results threatened the future need for their heart surgeries, the placement of stents, and other expensive conventional treatments. These "conventional treatments" are what hospitals and doctors currently depend upon to sustain the current standards of their professional services and livelihoods.
Dr. Heilbron shares that, based on his experience, if these results were for an expensive drug with major pharmaceutical funding and profits at stake, the cardiologists would have given thunderous applause and long standing ovations for Dr. Lamas’ T.A.C.T. Study speech and slideshow. Then the astounding news would have been followed by immediate and massive press exposure from the medical communities, directed at the public for a high demand of these pharmaceuticals.
Instead, the reaction was a deafening silence in the auditorium of over 10,000 cardiologists, sitting in shock, concerned about the future of their practices wondering whether to change their points of view on Chelation Therapy, or to somehow quash these findings from ever becoming known publicly, let alone integrated into conventional medicine.
"Quashed Public Awareness of the Meaningful Results that Could Save Lives"
The T.A.C.T. study results were clearly so shocking to the medical community at large that the actual statistical results were suppressed from being published for almost 5 months (instead of the usual same or next day publication.)
Following the AHA Scientific Sessions, Dr. Heilbron stated that he observed all of the mainstream media's articles in journals and publications either blatantly written leaving out the statistical TACT Study results, or the results stated in abstract scientific terms. Most, if not all, of the doctors and their patients would never comprehend the finding's actual amazingly high percentage improvements overall and for each endpoint.
"What happened to the "Hippocratic Oath" we all took?" asked Dr. Heilbron.
"How could this happen in America? What happened to freedom of speech? What happened to the communities of dedicated patient-centric doctors and medical services? It makes no sense... except on a purely business basis -- at the expense of patients’ and loss of their quality of life, plus needless agony, possible deepening of debt, and suffering for so many unnecessarily."
It seems the results at the 2012 AHA (American Heart Association) may have been too good. The findings have been suppressed from every perspective according to Dr. Heilbron, who stated what he witnessed during the conference and thereafter, the publication of the results being skewed to not even be comprehended by most cardiologists or doctors, much less their patients.
The actual T.A.C.T. Study findings were "beyond the norms of most drug studies which are often raced to market, even when they have low single digit results!"
The T.A.C.T. Study improvements – lack of heart related incidents (lack of reoccurring heart attack or death) was an incredible:
18% to over 37% lack of reoccurring incident of heart attack or death, depending on whether or not it's taken with vitamins!
"These results are HUGE! Especially if you are a patient who already had a heart attack fearing the next one is only a matter of time!" stated Dr. Heilbron.
Dr. Heilbron while working with the Mayo Clinic was instrumentally involved with structuring the fundamental facts for the South Beach Diet, and in working with Mt. Sinai Medical Center was instrumental in assuring the protocol for the T.A.C.T. Study was followed by all participating T.A.C.T. doctors.
There were 134 clinics involved in the study including Harvard, Mayo Clinic, Duke University, University of Miami, Mount Sinai Medical Center, and many more.
The T.A.C.T. Study consisted of many of the most prestigious clinics in the U.S. with over 300 participating doctors treating over 1,700 heart attack patients over a ten year period and $31 million in taxpayer's money. You and your families, along with over 300 million people in the U.S. have the right to be made highly aware of these findings and how they might save your life or the life of a loved one.
We encourage you to pass this article along to anyone with heart concerns or concerns about cancer.
Dr. Heilbron went on to state that if any patient or their doctor is interested in learning more about chelation they should go the ACAM website and to the website of Garry F. Gordon MD,DO,MD(H), President of Gordon Research Institute who per Dr. Heilbron is one of the leading world researcher on EDTA Chelation Therapy with over 7,000 articles. There you’ll find whatever specific information on Chelation related to heart attacks and cancer you need.
If you or a loved one has had a heart attack, or if heart attacks are prevalent in your family history, please do not hesitate to purchase the Director’s Cut of the highly revealing documentary film "Unleaded"!
What You Need to Know about Nutrition for Healthy Heart Support
Three foundational nutrients known for supporting a healthy heart include CoQ10, Magnesium and Taurine. Products like Q Avail™ VS 100, Magnesium Malate Chelate, and Taurine by Designs for Health are designed to be easily absorbed and highly effective for supporting several aspects of heart health and blood pressure.
For more targeted nutritional support, the combination of well-known nutrients carnitine and ribose are impactful for enhancing heart health and are available synergistically as Ribo-CarniClear™ liquid.
In addition to a lifestyle that discourages unhealthy habits like smoking and excessive alcohol, promotes healthy physical activity, smart weight management and emphasizes diets that keep blood sugar levels healthy, smart nutritional supplementation can make a big difference in how long you maintain a healthy heart.
Please see Dr. Roy Heilbron's new YouTube lecture from the Bliss Conference describing his new book on heart disease, "Healing Heart Disease with Chelation Therapy."
"In spite of the very positive TACT study results, the American Heart Association does not yet recommend that physicians include chelation therapy as part of their treatment protocols for cardiovascular disease." It has however begun to positively influence the impressions of some prominent cardiologists. For those interested in what other cardiologists think they may want ot visit this link...
