The goal of our Strophanthus Project is to introduce this valuable medicine, sometimes referred to as “the insulin of the heart,” to as many practitioners and heart patients as possible. The hope is that not only will more people find help with their heart issues, but we can also develop a community of practitioners who are well versed in its use. I have asked practitioners who are using our strophanthus extract to write in with feedback from their patients. Hopefully, this feedback will provide the foundation for future studies on the efficacy and indications for its use. Thankfully, some of this feedback is starting to come in, which I share below, along with notes on possible explanations for the patients’ experiences.
Unlike hypertensive drugs and their myriad side effects, hibiscus extracts were also shown to reduce inflammation, lower abdominal fat, reduce serum triglyceride levels, improve liver function and protect the kidneys. Yet, despite this breakthrough, it is rare for a medical doctor to prescribe hibiscus extracts to the millions of patients in this country on hypertensive drugs.
Sadly, the story of ouabain, the active ingredient in the plant strophanthus, is largely and somewhat mysteriously unknown. Few family doctors, internists and even cardiologists know of its effectiveness in treating and preventing heart disease and heart attacks, and it therefore remains unavailable to most heart patients.
With this newsletter, I’d like to introduce ideas and strategies that I believe are important to understand the heart and circulation, as well as the treatment and prevention of heart disease. In terms of treatment and prevention, two of the most important aids are the fat-soluble vitamins E and K2.
Welcome to the first Human Heart, Cosmic Heart newsletter. In these monthly posts, I intend to explore the themes that I introduced in my new book, Human Heart, Cosmic Heart, such as the role of the heart and circulation, what causes heart attacks, and the more esoteric connections between love, gold and the heart. In addition, I’ll share the ideas and insights that other people send to me that take my understanding of these subjects to a new level.
