I suppose Karen is a doc...then what do you say to someone like Dr Whittaker of the Whittaker Wellness Institute who, for 30 years, has been helping people get off these drugs.  I know how it works, DOC...pharmacy reps constantly in your waiting rooms to sell you on something that you take at face value.

I hope the person who asked you your question at least bothers to ask another doctor who may not be as obviously biased as you are against natural treatments.  And so you know, I do NOT take any supplements, just reading Dr Whittaker's books.

I don't fully agree with the first answer you got. My husband was young (32) when he had 3 stents put in his heart.  There are natural blood thinners.  Of course.  Your father can start slowly and maybe with the help of his doc can slowly get off some of the other scripts.  But always under supervision.  There is Nattokinase, Omega 3, Ginger, Ginkobiloba, Vit. E, Vit. K veggies...my husband started some of these and he takes 1 script now and 1 baby asprin. I wish your father well.

Karen is obviously a Jerk and Drug Pusher. I hope she has to go on Warfin some day and watch it slowly kill her, Like it is doing to me!!

Being a heart patient myself, I can help you with questions regarding heart attack, high blood pressure, cholesterol, angioplasty, stenting, medications, exercise and proper diet.


I had my first and only heart attack in summer 1999 while riding a lawn mower. I ended up flunking the stress test, found out my cholesterol level was 336, ended up having an angioplasty with 2 stents put in arteries in the left side of my heart. I have high blood pressure and on medication, I have high cholesterol and on diet and medication.
