Patient: 68-year-old Caucasian male, impact-induced (2 severe car accidents) atrial fibrillation (non-reversible; shock, chemical, ablation), left atrium 6.8 (<4.0 is normal), ejection fraction 28% (>50% is normal), 4/6 heart murmur. Besides "three drugs and a pacemaker/defibrillator," mainstream medicine has no treatment protocol for such a patient, and absolutely none for a full recovery. Using the multifactorial approach (MFA) combining key essential requirements for optimum health, with an emphasis on rebuilding the muscles of the heart and the revascularization of regenerated heart muscles , we achieved a full recovery. Heart rhythm has been 100% sinus for 3 years now, ejection fraction 80%, left atrium 3.7 (normal again), and 1/6 heart murmur. The key alternative modalities that were combined included: resistance exercise (weight-lifting), organ-specific embryonic cell extracts (heart, mesenchyme, and muscle), EECP (enhanced external counter pulsation), small amounts of human growth hormone (HGH), meditation, breathing techniques, and a number of nutrients that are heart-specific and anti-inflammatory.
Addendum: 62-year-old male patient, extremely poor state of health (bronchitis, poor skin color, congestive heart failure, coronary artery disease, heart irregularities uncontrollable with pacemaker, ejection fraction 18%, on priority list for heart transplant) followed the same recovery protocol in two 4-months segments. He is now off the heart transplant list, his ejection fraction has nearly tripled, his pacemaker now effective, and he is "in good health with lots of smiles" back working on his farm, lifting bails of hay for weight-training exercises.
