Hidden Causes of Heart Attack and Stroke (Inflammation, cardiology’s new frontier)
8 Vitally Important Medical Director Reviews
"Until this book, a reliable resource for the patient was simply not available as the subject is vast and complicated."John Rumberger MD., PH.D., FACC, Director, Princeton Imaging Center, former Clinical Professor of Medicine, Mayo Clinic and Ohio University
“Much of what Christian Wilde suggests today is destined to become standard medical practice in the next decade. No other reference--so succinctly discusses the myriad of ways we can prevent the heart attack or stroke that is always lurking over our shoulder. Gregory Guldner, MD, MS, FACC-- Director, Emergency Medicine Residency Program, Loma Linda University Medical Center
“Many of the new emerging risk factors for heart disease are known in cardiology and research circles but many patients and their families and many doctors do not yet have access to this information. Fortunately there is now a book that clearly and concisely explains these new emerging risk factors which can help patients and families understand a little more about heart disease. Foreword by Karol Watson, M.D., PhD., Director of Preventive Cardiology and Director of Hypertension Lipid Management, UCLA
"Written from the heart, Christian Wilde offers ways beyond cholesterol that cause heart attack and stroke. The information is timely and important for anyone who wants to help themselves or a loved one avoid a heart attack or stroke." Michael Miller, M.D. PhD., FACC-Director of Preventive Cardiology, University of Maryland.
It became apparent to me when I met the author at my Family Medical Center several years ago, that his research and knowledge of coronary disease detection had put him months if not years ahead of most physicians’ understanding of the subject. It would take yet another two years before CRP, homocysteine, chlamydia titers and fibrinogen would become topics of discussion in medical circles. This book will change the way the public looks at heart and brain diseases. It outlines in detail multiple strategies to detect, treat and prevent heart attacks and strokes that the reader will find easy to understand. It should be read by anyone over 30."

FIBRINOGEN "I have just finished reading your extensive chapter on fibrinogen. You have been visionary in your early (1995) identification of what may well turn out to be the next major breakthrough in heart attack and stroke prevention. After my more than 50 years in the profession you have even opened my eyes. I am convinced, the information you present will save many lives." Ronald M. Lawrence M.D., Ph.D., appointed advisory member of four national governmental health boards including the Institutes of Health. Founder and Director, American Athletic Association---Author, Miracle of MSM
"This book provides useful insights for physicians as well as patients into the most recent advances in the understanding of heart disease."
Johannes Czernin, M.D. Director of Nuclear Medicine UCLA
I am sending this letter to say how happy I was to read your book, "Hidden Causes of Heart Attack and Stroke." I have found the book to be not only informative, but in many ways it has also changed my thinking about the current workup and management of coronary artery disease.
A lot of the issues that you have touched upon in many chapters, I had found in my training to be in the scientific realm. Now, having worked with you and having discussed your current management, I have found that the improvement in your lab values over the course of the past few months has proven to me how not only how informative you are, (as demonstrated throughout your book), but how the management of your current medical background has been clearly influenced by the research you have done.
In many ways, you have opened up my eyes to the value of your research, which not only confirms the experimental questions in my residency, but it also reinforced the newer way of thinking in regards to dealing with not only coronary artery disease, but also as focusing on congestive heart failure. You have definitely started to think "outside the box" and as more and more news articles come out almost on a weekly basis confirming your research.
It appears that you are somewhat "before your time." Your book has shown to be not only very forward thinking, but is also almost prophetic in regards to not only the disease process and coronary artery disease, but also the management and maintenance of some heart disease as well as stroke, and congestive heart failure.
I thank you for allowing me to read this wonderful book, and plan to include it in my weekly readings to be better prepared on what the future may hold in regards to the treatment of heart attack, stroke, and congestive heart failure.
Sincerely, John Peric, M.D.
