Plaquex therapy is a treatment that is derived from soybeans. It is a combination of vital phospholipids. Originally developed in Europe, it is utilized primarily to facilitate the removal of fatty deposits of plaque found in the arteries and surrounding tissues. In addition, it is highly effective in increasing the heart’s capability of withstanding stress, especially for those who have had a previous myocardial infarction (heart attack).
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Lipid replacement therapy works by removing buildup of cholesterol from the major arteries and connective tissues. It is then excreted by the liver. This is very important in regards to the formation of blood clots during a stroke or cardiac event.
After undergoing alternative therapy, many patients report a reduction in angina symptoms, an overall improvement in sexual function and improvement in memory function. There are also many other therapeutic benefits including:
- Decrease in LDL levels (bad cholesterol).
- Increase in HDL levels (good cholesterol).
- Lower blood pressure.
- Improved kidney function.
PROCESS BEFORE AND AFTER
Prior to administration, your physician will perform a thorough exam and take a detailed medical history to ensure you are a suitable candidate. He or she may also test you to see if heavy metals are present in your blood. Your physician will most likely recommend dietary changes and lifestyle modifications to address any pre-existing conditions that caused the buildup of plaque. If found to be a suitable recipient, expect to receive between 20 and 45 treatments depending on your specific case. These are spaced out evenly over several weeks.
This specific type of therapy is administered intravenously. The entire process lasts approximately 90 minutes. It can be used in conjunction with other treatments to treat atherosclerosis. It is often used in combination with chelation therapy or hydrogen peroxide infusions.
Plaquex is also able to be used as a single agent. Patients who have undergone infusion have reported loose stool and diarrhea, but overall it is usually well tolerated.
As with any medical treatment, be well informed about the procedure, and know the risks and benefits beforehand.
