Walt - My Brother's Heart Attack

Posted by Joanie on April 02, 2002 at 12:25:52:

My brother is 53 and just had his second heart attack. His first one was about 12 years ago and was told it was caused by a blood clot in one of his arteries. That was a pretty serious one. This one was relatively mild. The cause was the same. They did an angiogram and installed a "stint" in the artery at the site of the blockage. They sent him home after about 5 days for a few weeks of rest. He's on a blood thinner, a beta blocker and 3 other meds. My question is where do these blood clots come from and what causes them to form in the first place? He's not very overweight, and otherwise in great health. Thanks Walt.

Namaste`

Your brother may have a blood clotting disorder such as Antiphospholipid Antibody Syndrome. The cause of the disorder can be discoverd by performing blood tests that detect antibodies. These antibodies cause the blood to clot quicker within the body and hence, blood thinners are often needed. I personally believe these antibodies form due to stress, LGS, etc... If you do a google search you will finds tons of information.

I hope your brother recovers quickly and can prevent future heart-attacks.

Sorry, Joanie.

It is your brother that has to be asking these questions.

If he were MY patient I would immediately start Chelation.

It should be apparent to him by now that his surgery did nothing about WHY this had happened and that that process had continued--and WILL continue--until he is dead.

Clots happen when the blood is traumatized by being forced though a narrowed opening (the purpose of the "stent"). WHY his arteries have narrowed openings is what he has to deal with, not just widening the area with a stent.

See the Chelation archives, the home page article about it, the coronary and cardiac archives.

See the glossary for any unfamiliar terms.

Thanks for the reply, Walt. His cholesterol and BP are both below normal. If he has no cholesterol buildup, what makes his arteries so narrow? Bracing?

Hi, Joanie.

Most coronaries are caused by spasm of the coronary arteries. If you will become a student of the process, you will see that most heart attacks do not have ANY of the currently accepted susceptibility factors (smoking, high cholesterol and the like). Besides humans are the only species that can decide when to have their coronaries.

What is the most common time for humans to have their coronaries? Answer: Monday morning.

SO, I am assuming that your question about bracing was a facietious one. However, chronic stress-effect storage in the hypothalamus IS one of the most common causes. You can get the proof of this with Selye's and Pelletier's books.

Actually it COULD be considered "bracing" of the smooth muscles of the artery walls.

Let us know what you learn. You have much of it to do.

Walt
