In a shocking front-page article, the Los Angeles Times newspaper reported that Kaiser was finally going to join the transfer system. What is this transfer system? It’s an emergency medical system established to transfer people with severe heart attacks to centers where they can get the very best in care, meaning centers that are set up to perform angioplasty to open clogged vessels at any time of the day or night. Kaiser has been gambling with the lives of its members by trying to provide inferior and less expensive care at its own centers.
Of course the real point here is how to prevent someone from needing this type of service in the first place. Cardiovascular disease is rampant in our society. It’s the number one killer of adults in United States. But it is preventable.
The conventional medical establishment would have you think that there’s nothing to do about it, but we in restorative medicine know that there are ways to evaluate and find the underlying causes and then treat to actually prevent heart attacks from happening. Heart attacks are not a normal part of getting older. They are preventable.
What you need to do for true prevention is to find a center that will do an evaluation of your current risk with a carotid ultrasound exam and then search for the underlying factors that lead to heart disease. Only then can you prevent this tragic disease. The Sklar Center Heart Program is ready to help you find out your risk, then get to the underlying causes and institute treatments so that heart attacks can be prevented.
