More than a million angioplasties are performed every year in the United States.
Angioplasty often is the first choice of treatment for people with clogged arteries of the legs (or heart), because it is relatively less invasive.
In standard angioplasty, the physician makes a quarter-inch incision in the groin artery and advances a tiny tube, or catheter, through the artery to the site of the blockage, whether in the legs or heart.
A small balloon at the end of the catheter is then filled with saline, and, as the balloon expands, the walls of the clogged artery are compressed, opening up the vessel for better blood flow. Increasingly, tiny metal mesh cylinders called stents are placed in the blood vessels to keep them propped open.
Typically, the patient undergoes conscious sedation before the procedure.
Unfortunately, angioplasty comes with its own risks, such as:
In three to five cases out of 100, the procedure itself triggers a potentially deadly heart attack.
In one to two cases out of 100, the patient doesn't leave the operating room alive.
The blockage soon returns in up to half of all angioplasty procedures.
Angioplasty and bypass surgery are a $16 billion-a-year business for doctors and hospitals…
Six (6) to nine (9) months after treatment, restenosis rates approach 50 to 60 percent in the leg arteries, and 20 to 30 percent in the heart arteries.
Angioplasty is far less invasive than bypass surgery in treating clogged arteries - but half of the time, the blood vessels... reclog. Reclogging, or reblockage, is the Achilles’ heel of the standard therapies to open up blocked leg (or heart) arteries.
In effect, angioplasty traumatizes the vessel wall; in response, the damaged cells try to heal and regenerate, forming scar tissue that reclogs the artery, a process known as restenosis (Re"sten-O'sis), or re-narrowing.
When that happens, angioplasty is often repeated or bypass surgery is performed. Restenosis rates have been reduced somewhat by the use of stents. Other possible solutions to restenosis (reblockage) include drug-coated stents or radiation (intravascular brachytherapy). However, there are potential risks associated with radiation treatment. Also repeat procedures typically carry a higher risk of complications.
Therefore, a new form of angioplasty, called cryoplasty, has been investigated. It freezes the insides of blocked leg arteries and heart using nitrous oxide, known as "laughing gas."
Cryoplasty seems to be much gentler on the arteries and doesn't appear to cause the scarring and reclogging (restenosis) that standard angioplasty can. In some patients treated with cryoplasty, there was no evidence of reblockage after six (6) to nine (9) months.
However, both angioplasty and cryoplasty do nothing to stop the progression of arterial disease, so in time, new fatty narrowings or blockages occur in the arteries!
Angioplasty: A Partial Fix
Without doubt, balloon angioplasty does not alter the natural history of atherosclerosis which, in many instances, is progressive.
For this reason, doctors tend to treat angioplasty patients with higher doses of cholesterol-lowering drugs, such as lovastatin and cholestyramine, in order to reduce restenosis (reclogging). They advise these patients to lower their LDL-cholesterol levels to... 100mg/dL or even below! (The New England Journal of Medicine, January 16, 1997).
Unfortunately, the view that 'the lower the cholesterol, the better' is not always true!
At level under 150, you can be at a risk of... too low cholesterol. This condition may result in depression and other health problems due to suboptimal function of such steroid hormones as
progesterone and estrogen.
Standard medical methods of treating atherosclerosis attempt to remove plaque from plugged arteries. None of them, however, treat the cause of the problem. They focus on reducing the effects of the plaque after it has built up -- not on eliminating the factors which created the buildup in the first place.
Beyond the Standard "Medicate-and-Cut" Treatments
A study recently published in the JAMA states that fewer than 10 percent of all patient decisions are well informed.
All "cut-and-medicate" treatments of gangrene carry with them one main shortcoming: they do little to stop the underlying cause of gangrene, that is the nutrient and oxygen deprivation in the affected areas due to impaired blood circulation.
Also surgery (read: amputation) has its limitations. In some cases it cannot be performed as it may put patient's life at even greater risk! Then, such condition is being qualified as... hopeless. "We're sorry, but nothing else can be done," vascular surgeons keep telling relatives of patients'.
And this is true - but only from the medical point of view.
What makes gangrene, especially its "dry" version, responsive to the nutritional method is the fact that this type of gangrene involves the resultant obstruction only of the arterial blood supply without interference to the venous return.
In other words, in dry gangrene the blood flow (circulation) is only partially impaired and the other part (venous system) is still functioning, or ready to function. Therefore, it is able to cooperate by supporting any attempt to restore internally faulty circulation, especially in its arterial part.
The other factor making dry gangrene highly responsive to the nutritional method is the fact that this disease is characterized by a gradual progression.
In other words, due to relatively slow development of gangrene, there is enough time to support the body nutritionally in order to restore partially impaired circulation - in this case, to unclog arterial blockages.
These two factors - the partial impairment of the blood flow and the gradual progression of the disease - have been commonly overlooked, not to say ignored, by standard medical treatments of gangrene.
Clear-G Formula: The Nutritional Revascularization
Without improving the flow of blood to the affected limbs - amputation is a futile exercise, although it can be life saving at times.
Fortunately, there are people, including a growing number of doctors, who admit that there are successful methods to halt the progression of gangrene, other than temporary medical intervention.
One of the natural, non-amputation methods to effectively treat dry foot gangrene is the nutritional revasculatization.
Its first and foremost goal is to improve and - over a period of time - restore the impaired circulation in the areas wounded by vascular ischemia (decreased blood flow) - the most common cause of foot ulcers and/or gangrene.
The process of natural revascularization can be triggered with an application of nutritional - natural and essential - factors that - when presented in specific ratios and amounts - are able to correct longer standing deficiencies and imbalances which are known to contribute to the circulatory problems.
As opposed to standard medical methods of treating vascular ischemia, the nutritional revascularization helps to reduce the impact of factors that created the buildup of atherosclerotic plaque in the arteries.
Clear-G Formula: Advanced Blood Circulation Support
Any wound requires more blood than normal in order to heal. If that extra blood is not forthcoming the wound never heals and, in fact, dies back.
The natural restoration of blood flow to the arteries can be done with the help of Gangrene Clearing Formula - a targeted, orthomolecular formulation providing a comprehensive support for the entire circulatory system.
Simply put, our Gangrene Clear-G Formula works to improve and/or restore circulation. And improved circulation allows the body to heal itself.
What could be better than a nutritional supplement fixing the impaired circulation that develops in a diseased body?
There have been medical studies on the beneficial effect of nutritional supplementation on the circulatory system; it appears people with poor blood flow do benefit from specialty dietary supplements.
Nutritional factors - naturally occurring substances, not drugs whose substances are foreign to the body - are able to boost the body chemistry by
correcting possible deficiencies and/or imbalances and
providing optimum conditions for the proper functioning of the body's own intrinsic ability to heal itself.
As far as the cardiovascular system is concerned, according to orthomolecular nutrition, if the right building blocks (nutrients) are present in the body - in the right amounts and at the right time - the body will do the rest.
In other words, if you want to stop the progression of gangrene due to impaired cirulation you need to get to the root of the problem. By just pulling a dandelion out by its leaves, you are not going to get very far.
So far, we have introduced our proprietary Gangrene Clear-G Formula to our clients and customers in 40 countries: the United States (including Virgin Islands and Hawaii), Canada, Malaysia, Australia, the United Kingdom, South Africa, Thailand, New Zealand, Germany, Belgium, Trinidad, Mexico, Italy, Pakistan, Singapore, Mauritius, Suriname (South America), France, Bolivia, Russia, Croatia, Poland, Portugal, Denmark, Israel, Azerbaijan, Kenya, Bosnia, Malta, Ukraine, Czech Republic, Ethiopia, Greece, Spain, Kuwait, Germany, Venezuela, Colombia, Honduras, and Nicaragua.
This all-natural combination of 105 nutrients and phytonutrients (plant nutrients) not only keeps your blood flow to the affected limbs in check (as drugs do), but actually helps your body rebuild the organs and systems that control blood circulation - without side effects.
No wonder, our proprietary Gangrene Clear-G Formula can produce results that doctors have rarely seen before, even with hard-core prescription drugs. And, unlike pharmaceutical drugs, it is very body-friendly.
Our proprietary Gangrene Clear-G Formula is a complete "multi" supporting healthy blood circulation. It has been designed to provide optimal concentrations of vitamins, anti-oxidants, lipotropic factors, chelated minerals, trace minerals, and digestive enzymes as they are all necessary to optimize the blood flow.
In other words, Gangrene Clear-G Formula does not "destroy" gangrene! It helps the body to eliminate its cause, namely, to stop the progression of gangrene through improving and, over a period of time, restoring impaired blood circulation that is known to contribute to gangrene.
In our clinical experience, Gangrene Clear-G Formula does that in a way of:
reducing the dysfunction of endothelium - the innermost arterial lining by stimulating the body’s natural built-in, internal free-radical scavenging system
overcoming peripheral vascular ischemia by improving and/or restoring circulation - blood flow to the wounded areas
encouraging vasodilatation - widening (dilation) of the lumen of blood vessels
promoting the body's ability to develop collaterals - new, small blood vessels in the problem areas
delivering more vital, oxygen-rich and nutrient-dense blood to the affected areas
producing the growth factors - the necessary for healing substances released by the body into bloodstream and stimulating the growth of tissue and skin
preventing and/or fighting off the infection of gangrenous tissues.

The following thermographic photos are of a 57-year-old man whose feet were thermally "amputated" due to poor circulation.
This man considered himself fairly active and on a good diet. He was on the nutritional revascularization program for six (6) weeks.
A thermographic photo of both feet of a 57-year-old male, prior to the nutritional revascularization program.
A thermographic photo of the same feet of the same 57-year-old male, after six (6) weeks on the nutritional revascularization program.
The follow-up thermographic photo demonstrates a glowing picture of the feet with all toes visible. The increased temperature in this area was made possible by improved circulation (blood flow).
Within six (6) weeks, vascularity in this man's feet was increased by 86 percent, and pulse volume - by 50 percent. Considering the fact that impaired cirulation in the extremities is difficult to treat, to see such a high degree of response in only six weeks is most significant.
The following plethysmographs are of both feet of the same 57-year-old man.
The first graph shows the signs of poor circulation, such as decreased size of the waveform, the oval peaking, and the indistinct low volume peaks - prior to the nutritional revascularization program:
The second graph demonstrates the signs of improved circulation, such as increased size of the waveform, the sharper peaking, and the distinct high volume peaks - after six (6) weeks of the nutritional revascularization program:

Thermography is a photographic technique that measures and records infrared heat patterns. It can be used to detect areas of poor circulation in the body.
Plethysmography is a technique used to measure blood flow volume in the body. In atherosclerotic or diabetic disease, the vigour of the blood flow is seriously decreased.
Testimonial: "Ulcers On His Legs Completely Healed"
Thursday, July 19, 2007
On behalf of my family and myself, we would like to express our gratitude to your company for developing the Gangrene Clearing Formula.
My father is a diabetic and due to poor circulation to his legs, he began to develop sores on his legs and foot. The sores on his foot eventually turned black as he developed dry gangrene.
After repeated visits to a podiatrist and a vascular specialist, the dry gangrene began to spread and he had to be admitted into the hospital.
Both doctors suggested that my father's left leg be amputated from the knee down.
I immediately researched the internet to educate myself on what the doctors were stating, to confirm their recommendation. Fortunately, I found the website for Full of Health Inc. and decided to start the treatment and postpone the surgery.
After three weeks, the ulcers on his legs completely healed and the black scabs on his toes began to fall off and revealed healthy new skin.
The nurse that has been cleaning my father's wounds daily has expressed complete amazement and requested Full of Health's phone number to recommend it some of the patients she treats.
The progress that my father has experienced after three weeks of taking the Gangrene Clearing Formula has saved his leg, lifted his attitude and made him feel more energetic.
Thank you again for helping families that are faced with loved ones that are only given the option of amputation.
And thank you for all your insight and information you provide to my father and I.

* The testimonial above is a true, documented story. It has been reviewed, however, it is the sole opinion of the listed individual.
First, let me thank you for the unique way you created your web site. It was very easy to find and your words were sincerely understood.
I’m living proof that gangrene can be reversed.
In April 2005, I was in a hospital bed, and about an hour away from a scheduled amputation of the fifth toe of my right foot.
Right from the hospital bed I called your toll- free number and asked you if it was possible to reverse gangrene even though I was told earlier that morning that bones in my toe were also infected, and the answer was “yes.”
I declined the amputation, and two days after taking Gangrene Clearing Formula, the gangrene portion of my toe began to fuse with the non-gangrene area. The rest is history.
My toe is healed and the infection is completely gone. No one can believe it. Many are calling it a miracle, especially since the doctors at one of the most well known university medical centers told me that an amputation was the only remedy.
Day after day as I changed the dressing on my toe, I was amazed to observe steadily growing white healthy tissue. Eventually the gangrene of the affected part came off and the remaining part of the toe healed nicely.
I’m happy to have saved most of my toe, in light of the fact that the surgeons wanted to amputate it all the way up to the metatarsal bone in my foot.
I must admit that it took courage and close to five months for a complete healing, but it was well worth it. The most important thing here is that the gangrene was REVERSED!
Your Formula specifically targeted the problem and is very potent. It really works!!!!!
I might add that you were always available to me for personal support. Also, my sugar is now under control without insulin.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

With no doubt, development of foot or leg gangrene - to a great extent - is related to what you eat and how often you move. In most cases, unhealthy lifestyle - faulty diet and physical inactivity - contribute to the production of degenerative changes in the body, such as diabetes or atherosclerosis.
