Do you or a loved one have heart, peripheral (blocked circulation in the legs) or cerebral-vascular (blocked or poor circulation to the brain) disease? If so, it has certainly affected your quality of life and caused serious anxiety about your future health. Vascular disease is the number one killer of Americans today. You are about to set out on an exciting journey of discovery explaining why it doesn’t have to be this way.
Most people are fairly familiar with heart disease and its implications. However, in the area of stroke research has shown that patients with the greatest amount of plaque growth in their aorta (large artery ascending from the top of the heart and supplying blood to the brain and the rest of the body) are at greatest risk for throwing emboli to the brain (small pieces of plaque) and suffering a stroke. Further evidence of the high risk of vascular disease affecting the brain has been discovered by neuroradiologists. Using MRI imaging, they have discovered that by age 50, they can detect tiny white spots in the brains of the majority of patients studied. These spots represent tiny, asymptomatic strokes. Ultimately, the progressive increase of these silent brain strokes more than doubles the risk of dementia. It is now accepted that at least half of all senile dementia is caused by vascular injury to the brain. The simple fact is that much, if not all of this is avoidable.
Bypass surgery for heart disease has been hailed as a miracle cure, but carries with it significant risk and published studies indicate it is no better than medical management in most cases unless at least three major vessels are blocked and there is some degree of congestive heart failure. Cardiologists and cardiothoracic surgeons cannot even predict with any degree of certainty exactly which section of which artery is going to suffer from the next heart attack. In order to do this they would have to accurately identify the sections of your heart arteries containing the soft, otherwise know as “vulnerable” plaque. Because of high levels of inflammation and other factors contained in these soft plaques, these plaques have been found to be at greatest risk of fissuring or breaking open and causing a clot. This leads directly to the release of their stores of cholesterol, white blood cells and other debris, causing the next heart attack.
Dr. Mueller is a medical doctor who has been in practice for 23 years and has a background in Internal Medicine. He is the Director of IV Services at Whole Family Healthcare. In 1998 Dr. Mueller was introduced to what was then referred to as complementary and alternative medicine. He quickly developed a passion for this holistic approach to healing the mind, body and spirit, with its emphasis on nutrition, diet, lifestyle, and safer, natural therapies. Over the next 17 years Dr. Mueller focused on advancing this very exciting, emerging area of health care now known as integrative medicine, which included participating in a number of research trials, some of which Dr. Mueller both designed and conducted at his own practice. With a creative and curious intellect, Dr. Mueller has since pushed the boundaries in many areas in the integrative field. These include a now well-recognized reputation and expertise in nutritionally-based, intravenous therapies for a wide range of medical conditions, with a special emphasis on heart disease and advancing and improving support and quality of life in all patients with cancer.
