Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) Remedies

Aug 30, 2016


Treatment for peripheral artery disease varies from traditional dietary and lifestyle changes to effective natural supplements. Limiting the intake of saturated fats and getting regular exercise prevent clogging of the arteries and maintain effective cardiovascular function. Natural supplements including lecithin, fish oil and serrapeptase treat the condition as well.

What is Peripheral Artery Disease?

Characterized by narrowed arteries and reduced flow to the limbs, peripheral artery disease causes a variety of associated symptoms that can progress to more permanent damage. Common symptoms include painful cramping in the lower extremities, leg numbness and weakness, coldness in the legs and feet, sores on the toes and feet, hair loss in the legs and many others.

The condition is typically caused by atherosclerosis or fatty deposits on the artery walls. Additional causes include blood vessel inflammation, injury, unusual anatomy and radiation exposure.

Natural Remedies for Treating Narrowed Arteries

Effective treatment for narrowed or narrowing arteries is crucial for preventing other cardiovascular related conditions. Primary treatments include dietary changes and exercise to prevent narrowing caused by bad habits. Natural supplements also serve as an effective treatment option and include such compounds as lecithin, fish oil and serrapeptase.

Lecithin

Lecithin is a phospholipid compound used in treating a variety of conditions. In regards to peripheral artery disease, lecithin is an effective cholesterol metabolizer, so it aids in the digestion and dissolution of cholesterol in the body. The compound naturally reduces cholesterol levels and prevents atherosclerosis.

Fish Oil

Fish oil is a natural compound high in omega-3 fatty acids. These fats help to flush the system as well as relieve inflammation. Both of these factors are key contributors to effectively managing peripheral arterial disease.

Serrapeptase

Serrapeptase is a natural compound that functions in three ways. It reduces inflammation by thinning blood and the other fluids in the body. Additionally, it relieves pain via a compound called bradykinin. The compound also dissolves plaque in the arteries and treats other symptoms of artery narrowing.

Peripheral arterial disease is a common issue of the circulatory system characterized by narrowed arteries. When treated naturally, the condition can be reversed before permanent damage occurs.

I've had afib for 3 years now and tried all the doctors pill pushing. I'm fed up with the cocktails that don't work, metroprolol succinate, amlodapine, losartan, and eliquis a blood thinner. I googled most of the material for natural healing properties other than the doctors pills. I had Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD), CAUSED by high cholesterol, went under the knife for a cryo ablation, it worked for a while but the cholesterol kept coming back.

A few days ago I tried Apple cider vinegar, and honey, and it cured my PAD. Prior to this I couldn't walk 5 yards without pain, now I can walk for miles. I was taking atorvistatin for 10 years now I abruptly quit taking it. Thank god for apples.

Now my atrial fibrillation problem needs to be solved. I started the garlic and honey, to control my high blood pressure, it's properties are amazing. Blood thinners naturally are avocado, cayenne pills organic with no GMO. I did not wean myself off any of the meds the doctor prescribed, I went straight to the natural way of healing because your body can absorb natural organic food better than doctor prescribed drugs. I now am gonna try hawthorn, and magnesium to control my afib. Maca root is also a Peruvian fruit that's a super food that heal and helps all kinds of human ailments, even Ed. Metroprolol is the leading cause of Ed and diminished libido. It works!!

I have pain in my legs caused by PAD. I understand that Lecithin and Fish Oil are effective in help flush out the plaque. I am having difficulty finding a product without gmo soy and what about the soy? I have seen warnings which say use only soy products made from non gmo seeds. I also thought that only soy products that have been fermented are safe to consume. Can you help?

You don't need to get your lecithin from soy - see a post I made here:

Ailment: Peripheral Artery Disease, Heart Disease

Remedy: Nattonkinase and Serrapeptase

Over 8 years ago in my late 40s, I suffered from severe Peripheral Artery Disease. I had great difficulty in walking. My blood coagulates due to an unknow microbe. My cholesterol always remained way above 300.

I did research on heart disease and clogging of the arteries. After I researched, I came up with a plan. First, eat as much cholesterol as I want. Second, take high dosages of the fibrolytic enzymes i.e., 60-100K unit of Nattokinase and 140-200K units of Serrapeptase 3 times a day on empty stomach. Within 3 weeks, my symptoms began to dissipate. After 2 months I was symptom free. You will know whether it works or not within one month. I went down to a maintenance dose after a few more months. It cost me $11 a month. Your body will only use as much fibrolytic enzyme as it needs. The enzyme creates flood flow hence clears buildup and dissolves clots. I use Serrapeptase since it has something added that dissolves clots also. After your symptoms dissipate, you can experiment on what works best for you and dosage, I found taking both works better for me.

China has done thousands of studies on fibrolytic enzymes. They have found it protects people from heart attacks and strokes. Nattokinase can be derived from bacteria or fungus. Both work but I prefer the bacteria derived kind. Some have vitamin K removed. This is so it won't interfere with some medications. I want the vitamin K in mine. Please try to replace you meds with natural remedies. I eat as much cholesterol as I want. No diet restrictions. This doesn't mean you can't experiment with diet changes to see what happens.

The medical establishment wants you to believe that cholesterol is the cause of clogged arteries. Cholesterol is what protects your arteries and you from death. It has been shown that people who have clean arteries don't have heart disease. Fibrolytic enzymes clean the arteries. You clean your arteries and you prevent heart disease. Even most bypass operations are unnecessary. Many doctors will try to scare their patients away from fibrolytic enzymes.

Do not take blood pressure medications. They are harmful to your health. Look at the research. Also your blood pressure will vary greatly during the day. I don't worry about blood pressure. Take control of your health.

What is 60-100k units? It converts to very high Mg

Did your blood vessels clear up in your legs, and did your doctor say the blockage was gone?

I am a 37 year old female with three children. I started up aerobic type exercising again after a few years of nothing and had some worrisome pain in my left leg after the third class. I've had clotting issues with having my children and assumed it might me a clot of some kind. Any pressure on my left leg made my leg feel immediately exhausted, while the rest of my body including my right leg was fine. I read your post about the enzymes and started taking both. I also like essential oils, and didn't want to take any chances, so drank herbal teas morning and night with a drop of helichrysm/ledum blend, drop of lemon, drop of lavender, all therapeutic grade essential oils (not the cheap ones, don't ingest store bought essential oils). I kept exercising, only drank water and hot tea and ate homemade meals, and within a week the left leg is now completely normal and keeps up with the right leg. I have also lost five pounds, yea! Thank You for taking time to share your experience; it has not only blessed my life, but my children's and husband's as well!

I never was diagnosed by doctor. I am my own doctor. I have diagnosed a zillion things. All my symptoms matched up. I have had no tests to determine anything. If you go to amazon reviews, you will see glowing reviews of the natto-serra combination. Doctors Best recently came out with the combination in one capsule. You have to understand that I was becoming crippled by it. I can walk normally again. No pain in arms either.

I can't know for sure if everything went back to normal but I am doing well still after 11 years. My thigh muscles get exhausted more easily if I do something very strenuous. I haven't been able to diagnose that. Maybe very tiny capillaries. Who knows. I do get a tiny bit of foot and toe cramping now and then but that may be due to other reasons other than artery related.

My risk of dying by heart attack or stroke is very minimal.

As far as units, look on back of bottle. If anybody has any artery related circulation problems, this is the first remedy to try. It is a clot buster.

Also embracing a low inflammation diet with combination of diet and antioxidants such as BCM-95, grape seed extract, ubiquinol and astaxanthin taken with krill oil for better absorption.

Please let me suggest, that with the rise in diabetes, that you also include a page for PAD. PAD- PERIPHERAL ARTERIAL DISEASE is being diagnosed more frequently as being linked to diabetes. Thankyou.


EC: Thank you for the suggestion. We do already have a page for PAD -- created November, 2008.

Hello Janis, I don't think there is any rapid cure but a couple of things should help keep his circulation going in his legs (your step-dad's).

First off is vitamin E 400 IU's 2 or 3 times a day. Another is vitamin C 4 to l0 grams per day divided out into several times a day (even less is excreted in the urine if taken every hour while awake).

I remember reading (medical journal) about a nursing home starting their elderly patients on 500mg. vitamin C four x a day because (believe it was Linus Pauling who said) it would lower cholesterol. They ended the study much earlier than planned because instead of the cholesterol being lowered, all of their cholelsterol levels soared and scared the dickens out of the ones doing the study. The question that came to my mind when reading this was: Did their cholesterol levels soar because it was being flushed out of their blood vessels?

You might also look up some of those detox & oral chelation recommendations in those section of EC. One recalled was 1 cup of EV Olive oil, 2 large bunches of Cilantro, and 8 cloves of garlic pureed in blender. Not sure but think the recommendation was l tsp. 3 x a day. Look for it in the above sections.

He also needs to stop all transfats (Crisco, margarine, etc.) and everything that list hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated vegetable oils
in their ingredients lists.

Help need for inflammation of the arteries.

Recently a friend was diagnosed with Temple Arteritis which was an inflammation of an artery in her left temple. Said she would have a throbbing headache, sore to the touch and dizziness would follow. Doc gave her prednisone to bring down inflammation. She hasn't started the pills yet, but is scared that she will have an aneurysm. Has anyone had this ailment or knows what is good to maintain healthy arteries excluding eating right and exercise?

Hello Kay from Jax

About the "Temporal Arteritis"... if you google "Temporal Arteritis Virus" a Pubmed scientific study comes up entitled, "High Prevalance of Herpes Simplex Virus DNA In Temporal Arteritis Biopsy Specimens" and the article abstract demonstrates a potential for serious outcomes.

This is likely a virus of lethal possibilities. If this were me (note I'm not recommending on this one) but if this were me.. I'd run to my cabinet and pull out the colloidal silver bottle; mix fifty-fifty with DMSO the solvent and penetrant and apply to affected area with a white paper towel. Repeat an hour later. If improved repeat an hour later.

Remember some viruses have lipid coatings and take more persistance to kill. Similar problem; Bell's Palsey. Same combo of DMSO and CS. Apply to affected side of face. I caught mine early when the virus hit me, (right side of face frozen... Scarry! ) before nerves had been damaged. Back to normal in one hour after application. Apparently that virus was not lipid coated because only one app was necessary. (Of course, you have to have a potent CS. So many are such tiny PPM I doubt their effectiveness.)

Praying for your friend.

Dave

Absolutely fascinating , that swollen artery is found to be a caused by virus, since ozone kills all viruses, you can get ozone IV but , for the swollen temple you can get ozone mixed in olive oil and apply with just a little dmso . Also taking turmeric and bromelain are natural anti-inflammatory. I know steroids are the get well quick route, but understanding the cause is crucial so you can address it.

Temporal Arteritis is "inflammation of the artery"... take anti inflammatories and you will heal it.

Aloe vera is an anti inflammatory as is Apple Cider Vinegar. Even aspirin or the herb willow which aspirin comes from is an anti inflammatory. Regular use of the above will help short term.

@Kay: Inflammation causes the "hardening" of the arteries as well as damaged epithelium. First reduce the inflammation w/ the prescription med starting at half the pill and slowly work up. OTC Tylenol or Advil could also be used in small doses.

Also, for immediate relief, place a refrigerator magnet over that area for at least an hr or two once a day. The side that sticks to metal is the side you place over the area (don't worry, very safe, have faith).

A list of supplements for artery health are: Hawthorn, Ginkgo Biloba, Horsetail, Zinc & Copper, Glucosamine, Vit-A (Cod Liver Oil), Grapeseed Extract. Your local or online health food store may have a formula especially developed w/ most of these ingredience for artery health.

Kay here is an article from a heart surgeon of 25 years. He says that the inflammation of the arteries is a direct link to eating wheat, sugars, omega 6 in excess. I think inflammation anywhere in the body is directly linked to wheat, grains and gluten.

Of note arthritis is also an inflammatory disease and going off wheat, grains and gluten has cured it for a lot of people as well.

I have been getting headaches in the temperal region as well and they have been getting worse. They were relieved when I took hawthorn berry tea. Funny hawthorn berry in an anti inflammatory so it probably worked in the temperal region to take away the inflammation. But the root of the cause is the wheat if you read the wheatbelly book. I did get a headache the first 2 days going off all wheat and grains (and amazing didn't need to take anything for it which is unusual for me) but it stopped on the 3rd morning. www.sott.net/article/242516-Heart-surgeon-speaks-out-on-what-really-causes-heart-disease
