Homocysteine And Heart Disease

May 8, 2012 by  

Dr. Kilmer S. McCully says in his book, The Heart Revolution, that B12 methylcobalamin vitamin B6 and methylfolate are absolute preventives for heart disease.

Now Dr. James Braly and Patrick Holford in their book, The H-factor Solution, say that homocysteine levels can be kept in safe parameters with B6, folate and B12 methylcobalamin. Homocysteine levels are a marker for heart disease.

I will add that potassium chloride salt, using it as daily salt, is also essential. Many grocery stores have it. If not, health food stores do.

    All “real” foods contain potassium, that is natural, low processed foods, such as vegetables, meat, fish, poultry, fruit, dairy, etc. Potassium supplements and “lite” salt (potassium chloride) need to be used with caution. Too much potassium in high concentration can cause severe angina (feels like a heart attack), and can, under certain circumstances, stop the heart from beating (cardiac arrest).

      Too TRUE!!!!!!! Good ole potassium chloride has been a favorite for some time now,
      in “murder mysteries, CSI shows, etc”, not only because it’s so effective, but extremely difficult to detect as a cause of death………which makes the point of this column a bit difficult to discern……..having a tough day Bob?

      Thanks for the warning about excessive potassium intake. I have no heart disease and would like to keep it that way. But I wanted to use potassium salt whenever I run out of bananas on the table. In moderation.

      • oldbill

        Many years ago, I had bought a lot of bananas on sale. They started getting too ripe. I ate three before going to work and took three more with me to snack on. By 9 am I felt like I had swollowed a soft ball and there was killer pain shooting up and down my left arm. I thought I was having a full blown heart attack. I sat down and began to wait. A half hour later the pain had not subsided. I didn’t have anything else for pain but asprin, so I took two. I told myself that if the pain didn’t go away in another half hour, I would have to go to the emergency room. Anyway it did subside, and went away. A few days later I was talking to an older supervisor who had had numerous heart attacks and surgeries. He asked me what I had “eaten” that day. When I told him six bananas, “You dumb ass! don’t you know that potassium is what they use to stop your heart from beating when they do open heart surgery?” A lesson learned and not forgotten. Too much potassium in relationship to sodium, calcium, and phosphorus, is dangerous, and can be deadly. By the way, I have recently quit eating bananas because of the sucrose (sugar) content. I want to get as much sugar out of my diet as possible. I don’t want to die of heart disease, diabetes, or cancer, diseases caused by sugar.

    Oldbill, a similar situation happened to me, but it was because of what I had with the bannana that caused my problem. I have a hiatal hernia that was not letting the combination of food into my stomach. Do you drink milk? A half glass of milk has as much potassium and sugar as a bannana. A lot of other foods that you would not think have sugar have more than a bannana. Also the sugar that you get from fruits and vegetables is the sugar that you need in order to maintain energy and proper glucose levels. The diseases you mention are not caused by the sugar contained in the fresh foods just mentioned.

    • oldbill

      I mostly have milk in the form of homemade kefir. Sucrose is sucrose, whether from the 5# bag or a banana. A normal, healthy human does not need ANY sugar in the diet. Meat and vegetables contain more than enough glucose to supply our energy needs. We do not need, at all, grain (especially corn and wheat) or sugar in our diet. Fruit in excess is just as damaging as damaging as refined sucrose. Fruit juice is poison in liquid form. These things are killing us. Sugar is so toxic, even small amounts fuel hormone upsets, neuro-system deterioration, and chronic diseases. I’m not a doctor, of course. I am a retired, part time site attendant at a trash collection and recycling center. The rise of disease in America has gone hand in hand with the change in our consumption over the past 100 years. We dine heavily on sugar, starch, transfat, and advice from the institutions of medicine.

    Don’t wait for your MD to figure it out and get it right, folks. Start taking TMG today. Check out the Life Extension website. It’s a complex issue (READ!). You CAN be healthy without relying on prescription drugs. Get that MD off your back.

    I am doing a project for health at school on heart disease and I am wondering what problems heart disease can lead to.
