Product Description

A revolutionary, personalized guide to preventing heart disease based on genetic factors

Heart disease is the #1 cause of death in America. It affects 81 million Americans and is the culprit in one of every two deaths in the United States. Most people think that they are not at risk of a heart attack if they control their cholesterol and blood pressure, but they aren’t aware of other major risk factors. The good news is that with the right information and strategies, heart attacks are preventable—even if heart disease runs in the family.

In Beat the Heart Attack Gene, world-renowned cardiovascular specialists Bradley Bale, MD and Amy Doneen, ARNP, present a new model for understanding and preventing heart disease. They explain the three different genetic types of cholesterol profiles and tailor treatments for each type, using their cutting-edge Bale/Doneen Method, a simple, comprehensive prevention plan that detects cardiovascular disease (CVD) at early stages. Beat the Heart Attack Gene includes easy quizzes and self-tests that show how to determine cholesterol genotype as well as advice for how to apply that knowledge through nutritional and lifestyle changes. For heart attack and stroke survivors, the Bale/Doneen Method also helps prevent recurrences by identifying and treating what''s triggering the patient''s disease—a crucial step that many cardiologists neglect.

With their proven method utilized by healthcare professionals worldwide, Bale and Doneen empower readers by alerting them to potential health threats, and then offer personalized, evidence-based strategies so they can live healthy, active lives without fear of heart attack or stroke. Specifically, Beat the Heart Attack Gene addresses:

*The hidden cause of most heart attacks
*Early prevention methods
*The dangerous cholesterol most doctors don’t check
*Major red flags for heart attack and stroke risk, including gum disease
*The gene that increases cardiovascular risk as much as smoking
*The best and worst supplements for your heart
*10 surprising ways to prevent heart attacks 


Review

“Not only does this book show you how to optimize your heart and brain health, but following this plan could even save your life.” —Daniel Amen, MD, New York Times bestselling author of Change Your Brain, Change Your Life

“Though percutaneous-based intervention is often a necessity in the era of ACS therapy, the Bale/Doneen Method encourages a ''mind over metal'' approach by focusing on both primary and secondary prevention. Their method demands a thorough investigation into nontraditional drivers of coronary disease, especially that of undiagnosed diabetes, often masked by a normal fasting blood sugar.  Finally, someone acknowledges the role of hidden glucose intolerance in the demise of our population! This book is an easy read and holds the key to our future successes in the fight against coronary inflammation. It should be required reading for every first-year med student as well as seasoned practitioners who stand on the forefront of detection and prevention.” —Melissa Walton-Shirley, MD, Blogger and Journalist, Cardiovascular Disease

“Throw out what you learned in medical school and start over with the Bale/Doneen Method. A must for every primary care physician.” —Bryan Glick, DO, Founding Physician at N1 Health of Scottsdale, AZ
 

“I do believe that [Bale and Doneen] harbor the secret for treating patients with cardiovascular disease.” —Melissa Walton-Shirley, MD, Kentucky, cardiologist, TJ Sampson Community Hospital
 

“The Bale/Doneen Method is truly unique. It is a comprehensive strategy that allows me to treat the individual patient and prevent their heart attack or stroke because I am able to identify the root cause of their disease and correctly treat it.” —David Wright, MD, TN, The Wright Clinic

FINALLY AN UNDERSTANDING FOR MY WEIGHT LOSS PLATEAU
Reviewed in the United States on October 29, 2017

This explained WHY I stopped losing weight. I''ve tried for years to get below 192 lbs. I started at 200 and when I cut out soda, cookies and ice cream I could drop the 8 lbs to 192 BUT NEVER GET BELOW 192. The book explains that when you STILL take in ARTIFICIAL SWEETENERS that it signals the body to prepare for glucose. Now, it doesn''t spike your insulin BUT when no sugars come down the throat the body goes into a craving mode. The body doesn''t send the hormone signals to shut off because there was no glucose to send the signal. So, you constantly munch on stuff which is extra calories and your body-weight stays at that plateau.
The answer is that you have to cut out sugars AND sweeteners in order for your body to "normalize" and become sensitive to insulin again. We saturate ourselves with sugars and sweeteners and then wonder why we have an obesity epidemic. Getting rid of sugar was hard enough for me but when I checked for artificial sweeteners it was really surprising. My pre-workout drink powder contains sucralose as does my protein powder. I''m 73 years old and really depended on the energy boost from that workout powder. But, I threw it all out. The protein powder I felt I really needed for muscle repair after a hard workout and there wasn''t THAT much sucralose in it. Over the past 4 or 5 days, I''ve managed to drop below the dreaded 192 to 188. Hopefully, the trend will continue as I want to get back to my high school weight of 160.
OH, NOTE THAT EATING SUGARY THINGS PROMPTS YOU TO EAT MORE SUGARY THINGS. Ever eat just ONE cookie? Of course not. That''s why they sell cookies BY THE BOX and that box full disappears pretty quickly, doesn''t it? Also note that the AHA recommends only 37 gms for men PER DAY. The WHO only recommends 25 gms. HOW MUCH DO YOU CONSUME?

This book was painful to read as it is poorly written. I wanted to scream, "get to the point!" repeatedly while reading it. Yes, it might be nice to know what one''s risk of a heart attack and stroke are but do we really need to run hundreds, if not thousands of dollars worth of test to find this out? The answer is an easy, "NO!". The easiest way to determine your risk for heart attacks and strokes is to simply look at your parents... and your scale. That''s it. And so what if you know your risk and you continue to smoke and sit on your fat ass all day. Exercise regularly, eat a plant-based diet, and take a STATIN if your cholesterol is elevated. That''s really it. Niacin has significant side effects and has not demonstrated, in long term studies, to make people live longer. So, why would anyone suggest that a patient take it? I have been a physician assistant for 2 decades and would be out of a job in short order if the majority of my patients simply lost weight and quit smoking. This is not rocket science. Patients love to insist that we run these tests but it still comes back to the same issue - diet and exercise. I personally have a genetic predisposition for early CV disease but running the suggested tests would change nothing for me: I take a STATIN, exercise 5-6 times per week, and keep my weight under control (and quit smoking 30 years ago). We are to believe that a family practice doc in Lubbock, Texas has unlocked the key to eliminating cardiovascular disease, while the rest of the medical community is clueless? Absurd!

I may continue this later: but for now I stopped about halfway out of annoyance.

Very little on the trade-offs involved in heart treatments. For example: they lower your chance of dying from cardiac problems, but raise them for diabetes and cancer often ending up with the same mortality. They''ll want you to exercise more but the medicines will increase your fatigue, lower interest in exercise, and lower the benefit from the exercise. The meds give you a continual cough, cause impotence, memory issues, ... They seem to be fan''s of the Mediterranean diet without commenting on the inflammatory aspects of the diet. Basically a huge marketing brochure.

Provides the most current risk factors with emphasis on prevention. More could have been said about insulin resistance and inflammation, but the book was written in 2014 and those facts about insulin resistance were not as certain then as they are now. Not many specifics about diet. Not much of an internet presence like many other MDs & PhDs who have flocked to YouTube.

He keeps going over cases that may not apply to your situation or be of help. 9P21, the so called "heart attack" gene, is in 2018 treated as a diabetes gene reinforcing the idea that the underlying cause of diseases of aging is insulin resistance. Dr Fuhrman MD provides the same promise - a medical free retirement with no cardiac events if you follow his nutrient dense vegetable diet plan. I recommend you compare the two programs if you have heart problems. You can read Dr Fuhrman''s 2018 book "End Of Heart Disease" on Amazon & Dr Fuhrman has just as many success stories as Dr Bale.

This was a great book. My First heart attack in and then total of 4 stents in 7 years, I learned so much that none of my dr''s had told me. Everyone that has a parent that has had heart event prior to the age of 60 needs this book and needs to make sure they get the advanced lipid profile testing done. Also, please make sure you get the 4 hr fasting glucose tolerance test done. People with CVD/CHD usually are insulin resistant as I was. My sugar and A1C were always perfect, so I requested dr to run Glucose tolerance test, and lo and behold, I had several high test results. Get this book, to read, not listen to.

I only got halfway through this book before skimming the remainder. It is a jumble of recommendations that sound precise, like "exercise 22 minutes per day to get a14% lower risk." There are chapter end notes, but they don''t seem relevant to the claims made in the associated chapters. What science I''ve learned from other books by other doctors often disagree with this book. And the book often contradicts itself.

Following this plan is an expensive and risky way to experiment with your health! The best I can say for it is that it is better that the SAD diet or veganism, and you will likely get better care from this kind of doctor than from conventional know-nothing doctors.

Amazing book that should be required reading for all medical professionals. So disconcerting that the tests listed in this book that could be so useful for so many and that cost so little are not apart of standard care. After reading this book you will be able to have an educated discussion with your doctor in better determining your risk of heart attack and stroke. I read a lot of medical/health books,this one is at the top of my most recommended books.
