The Real Science Of Heart Disease
By: Brainucation CCE Hours

Course Description

Overview In this lecture I scientifically call into question many of the conventional wisdom views of the heart and heart disease. I stawww.ccehourrt by exploring how many scientists have shown that the heart is not a very effective pressure-propulsion pump like we are taught in medical school. I further solidify this argument using the research of Dr. Gerald Pollack of the University of Washington which shows why we don't really need the heart to be a true pump. I then relate these conclusions to conditions like Congestive Heart Failure, Raynauds Syndrome, and varicose veins. The second part of the talk is focused on the real causes of heart attacks. The work of Dr. Giorgio Baroldi and Dr. Knut Sroka have shown us that a blockage or clot formation, what is typically thought to cause a heart attack, accounts for a very small percentage of heart attacks. Further, there has been lots of research showing that dietary saturated fat and cholesterol have no correlation with heart disease. This begs the question of what does cause heart attacks. The true cause happens when very specific conditions are met, but it ultimately lies in an imbalance in the function of our Autonomic Nervous System. The presentation concludes by showing how we as chiropractors can use this information to use the tools we have manipulation, supplements, and lifestyle to help support our patients who have heart disease. It particularly focuses on the science behind how manual manipulation has on impact on the imbalance that drive heart disease. Learning Objectives My goal with this talk is to educate chiropractors about the true causes of heart disease, not so that we can say that we treat heart disease—because there are obvious reasons why we shouldn’t say that—but because our patients need our guidance in ways that they can create strong, healthy hearts. It is obvious that our western medical model is failing those with heart disease and people are starting to realize this and seek out alternative practitioners. If we chiropractors are armed with this knowledge, then we can be there to support our patients who are in this situation.
