Mami Needs Help!

Hello, my name is David Grissom aka Grizzom aka Mami and I need your help. My wife Carol has suffered a massive heart attack and a stroke and has no insurance to pay for meds and future heart valve surgery etc. I'm disabled and have been living off disability/ social security since 2002. My wife quit work a few years back to take care of me and our family. Needless to say, money has always been tight and we never could afford health insurance for her.

Here's what happened: Around Thanksgiving day (Nov 24) My wife experienced chest pains and shortness of breath. She told me that she thought she was having a mild heart attack but then said that she was fine and refused to go to the ER. On Jan 16 she was complaining that she couldn't breath. We thought she had the flu like me and other family members but we forced her to go to the ER. They ran some test and said she had suffered a major heart attack and couldn't believe that she had been able to walk in the door. Next they did an angiogram where they shove a catheter up an artery in her leg to the heart and inject dye so they can see her blood vessels on xray. Well I guess a piece of plaque broke off during the procedure and ended up in her left brain which triggered a major stroke. Now she has no control of her right side and lost half of her vision in both of her eyes and has the personality of a 10 year old child. Since she doesn't have insurance, they will be sending her home in the next couple of days with some prescriptions and she/we will be on our own. I have some savings but it's not enough to cover the cost of remodeling my home to accommodate her disabilities, pay for the meds and equipment she needs to keep her alive long enough to get her on disability/medicare etc. If  y'all can spare a coin or two it will be going to a good cause and will be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Mami

The heart uses Calcium to contract and Magnesium to relax. Magnesium deficiency is the main cause of heart attacks. Avoid expensive prescribed medication and the bad side effects - use magnesium
Epsom salts bath salt also will help general relaxation

Updates:

01.29.2018 Wow! this post has only been up for like 12 hours and it's raised over $1200 dollars. I can't thank all you good folks enough for helping me out. I'll be emailing each and every one of you as soon as I get some free time. Right now I'm heading back up to see Carol and have a pow wow with her doctors and case manager and see what they can do about fast tracking Carol through the system and getting her on medicaid and see about alternative meds. The crap they have her on now is highly toxic and will do her more harm then good from what I've read. Well I'll be posting updates and let you folks know whats going on. All I can say is thank you, thank you, thank you. Dave / Mami

My sister gave me liquid Magnesium and it has lowered my cholesterol significantly.

Thoughts and prayers to Mami.

I will keep you guys in my thoughts, sending you good vibes. It's the best I can do.

Mami said...

Goods vibes is better then no vibes,thank you Larry. Well today I have to go and talk to her rehab people and see when she gets to come home. She is doing better her breathing is better and she is doing great as far as her right arm and leg but no improvement in her eyes and mind fogginess. She still has the child like personality but I think this is a good thing because shes mostly in a good mood instead of being a adult suffering from depression and self pity. It's very heart breaking because I lost my wife and gained a child and it will be tough to deal with losing them both. Thank you for all your support.

I have my wife back at home. I went down to the rehab and signed her out against doctors orders. They told me she would be dead in a matter of weeks if I didn't do it their way, I told them that she damn sure wont survive if they keep pumping their poisons into her. I told them she is no longer their concern and ripped up their prescriptions and left. They wanted to put her in a nursing home to die. I've come up with my own treatment program using nothing but natural supplements and potions and knock on wood they are working great. She is up and walking around and eating healthy food and her vitals (BP/HR)are better then mine!
Her color is coming back and she is full of energy. Here is what I'm giving her.

It smells like Dr. Stephen Sinatra in here. lol

If you are going that route, I would add Creatine and a good B complex vitamin with that if I were you.

Have you also considered Spirulina in some way? I think it's supposed to bond with plaque and remove it to prevent future attacks.

Also according to this link ginseng and gingko biloba may help stroke recovery.

Get some niacin and l-arginine in there too. She might have high lp(a) cholesterol. Your doctor will never tell you about that because there is no cure. It's the worst of the cholesterol, small waxxy particles. Niacin, vitamin c, proline and lysine protocol.

Good luck and I'm very sorry to hear about your wife but happy she is on the road to recovery.

Get mag glycinate, great for heart health.

B complex will help with homocysteine.

Good luck, you're a great guy, behind a good man is always a good woman.

By the way the d-ribose, you have done your research. As Zap said, sounds like you have read up on Dr. Sinatra.
