Am I at Risk for Heart Attack,
Stroke or Type 2 Diabetes?
Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women in this country. You can dramatically reduce and prevent your risk with PREVENT! Programs. Our revolutionary method prevents heart attacks and strokes and reverses cardiovascular disease. Inflammation is the consistent, underlying cause of heart attack and stroke, and PREVENT! targets and reduces inflammation in the body.
Ask yourself these questions…
- Do you have high blood pressure and/or a family history of it?
- Have you had a heart attack, stroke, stent, or bypass surgery in the past?
- Are you concerned about a heart attack or stroke in your future?
- Have you lost a relative to heart disease and wonder if you also are at risk?
If you answered YES to any of these questions, PREVENT! Programs are for YOU!

In addition, genetic factors may come into play, often presenting no outwardly visible or easily recognizable signs of being at risk. That’s where the ground-breaking protocol of the BaleDoneen Method® becomes invaluable. By using tests like coronary calcification scanning, AAA screening, ankle-brachial index for peripheral artery disease, electrocardiograms, echocardiograms, and the carotid intima media thickness test (CIMT), many of the most significant risk factors related to heart attack and stroke can be identified.
