Wed. afternoon I had a heart attack, my beautiful wife got me to Lake Havasu City's hospital's emergency room within the "golden hour". I was immediately admitted and taken to an exam. room to be treated by about six emergency cardiac professionals and Dr. Dalloui. I've never been so happy to strip naked in front of a group of people in my life! They assessed my situation quickly and took me to a treatment room, (very cold) and provided excellent care, only about 20% survive this type of heart attack. I had two arteries 100% blocked and two arteries 80% and one at 90% blocked. I was then taken to the ICU for three days where I received excellent care and then taken to general care on the third floor for one day where I also received excellent care. I was released Sat. at 6PM. Special thanks to all the professionals involved, I will be forever grateful for your dedication and professional service! Currently resting at home and making arrangements for open heart surgery.

Hope you are back 100% after the surgery. Hopefully to reduce stress, your doctor says no more PRF for you! Get well. :wink2:

Research Chelation and EDTA. Have your wife purchase a book called, "Forever 40" or "Bypassing the Bypass."

In addition; you should immediately consider taking a baby aspirin, Omega 3 supplements, CoQ10, Lecithin and Grape Seed extract.

I have addl advice if you want it. Either book will explain most of it.
I am the only patient in the state of Nevada to reverse arterial blockage without having Angioplasty.

Contact me at the office if your'e interested.

Good luck

Jake, glad to hear you are doing good. just to give people an idea of how your arteries got so plugged up can you give a basic breakdown of your lifestyle, eating habits?

Are you a big meat eater? steaks, burgers, bacon, pork, chicken, fish, etc
Sauces? BBQ, condiments, butter, canola oil, other oils... etc
Spices? hot foods, spicy, pepper, salt, garlic, onion etc
Greens? salads, broc, cauli, all that supposedly good stuff? etc

Thanks - maybe some of us can help ourselves before its too late!

Good Luck to you!

Very lucky. Glad you survived that. My neighbor had the same thing happen. He wasn't so lucky. Wife did CPR on him but I'm not sure how long he had gone without oxygen before found. He was alive when he got to the hospital. Made it thru surgery to put a stint in, but never recovered.

Happy to be alive...

I rarely post on here but this topic hit home and I have to say thank god you survived. Jake, I'm not sure of your age but I had my heart attack at 37, 2 100% blockages 1 being the widow maker. I have no family history of heart disease and both parents are living and in their 80's. Blocked arteries are a product of crappy processed food that I ate for 37 years, and STRESS...... It's been almost 6 years since mine and will never forget that pain... Just wanted to chime in to say it doesn't just happen to old people, and best wishes on your recovery Jake.
