angiography scheduled

Hi Doc,just received your books and plan to give them to a few people who would appreciate them,autograph was a bonus,thank-you.Anyways i am currently reading a few books,one of them being Dr.Ornish's heart disease reversal program,encyclopedia of Natural Medicine,and now with your book here i am reading yours as well!I'll quickly give you a brief description of my problems in case you forgot,chest pain upon exertion,cholesterol is little average to a little high but HDL is good,not diabetic,don't smoke,blood pressure was moderately high but now i have it under control due to diet(staying away from sugars and empty carbs).I had a stress tread mill test and within a minute i was feeling a chest pressure more of a burning in the center of the chest and stayed with me until he stopped the test(10 minutes).The
specialist recommended the angiogram to see whats going on,anyways after reading about the angiograms i am stuck in the middle.I truly believe from what i've read(Dr.Stoll and Ornish)that i should not have one done unless i am willing to do the angiography.I also am curious as to how my arteries are doing and my question to you is what if it is some other part of the heart(valves?)that's not working well and i don't have that diagonosed.The doctor has me scheduled for September 15 and i know that i should'nt get this procedure done,but i am worried that it might be something else and then i could end up being in real trouble!If i cancel will my doctor treat me different from now on?

Thanks Walt

Hi, Geddy.

An angiography will tell you NOTHING about your heart valves. It takes a completely different set of examinations to do that. The only reason for an angiography is in preparation for vascular surgery.

Next, IF your doc treats you differently because you did not blindly follow his advice, you have learned something VERY valuable: His ego is more important to him than your health. If this is so, I would use this information to find a doc who cared more for me than for himself. If you are willing to change, I am willing to help.

A chelation doc would know the best of both approaches.

Walt
