- It’s Preventable
Heart attacks, strokes, type 2 diabetes and other vascular diseases ARE PREVENTABLE! The BaleDoneen Method uses advanced laboratory, imaging tests and a comprehensive, individualized assessment to determine each patient’s hidden signs of arterial disease or red flags signaling increased risk for developing cardiovascular disease (CVD).Peer-reviewed studies have shown that our evidence-based, precision-medicine approach can halt, stabilize and reverse CVD, helping patients avoid heart attacks or strokes, even if they’ve already suffered one or more of these events.
The goal of the BaleDoneen Method is to allow patients to live their lives to the fullest – ensuring that ‘healthspan’ matches ‘lifespan’. This is accomplished by assessing arterial inflammation and identifying ALL the root causes of that inflammation. Using individualized and genetically guided therapies, arterial inflammation is controlled, and the arterial disease is stabilized and often regressed.
- Simple Testing is Available to Identify Disease!
Heart attack, stroke, and diabetes risk are often undetected by standard testing. BaleDoneen uses the latest science to uncover hidden risks. Noninvasive, painless, inexpensive tests are utilized to detect the presence of vascular disease and assess for its stability. Blood and urine tests assess the degree of inflammation. A holistic evaluation can determine the root causes of inflammation which frequently involves much more than cholesterol. As a matter of fact, about one half of all Heart attacks and strokes occur in people with normal cholesterol levels.Nationally, only 10% of providers offer these types of tests. Even fewer will offer all the tests we are recommending. This knowledge goes beyond the current standard of care and most often these simple tests are easy to get and inexpensive.
- There are 2 Types of Care
There are two types of care regarding CVD. The first treats end-stage disease and frequently involves emergent interventions. In the world of cardiology, for example, most cardiologists are interventional cardiologists. This means that they have been trained to intervene once arterial disease is causing a serious problem like a heart attack. Sadly, this is also referred to as the “standard of care”. Alternatively, the second option aims to prevent a disease or to prevent the disease from causing a serious problem. Preventative cardiology focuses on avoiding or stabilizing arterial disease, so no emergent issues arise. There are preventative cardiologists but very few.
