Heart attacks and ischemic strokes are preventable. While that’s wonderful news, it takes more than medicine’s current standard of care. It takes optimal care. And optimal care is at the core of the BaleDoneen Method®.
Although cardiologists and heart surgeons across the country have successfully lowered the rate of deaths from heart attacks, the sheer number of heart attacks and strokes has not dropped. Treatment methods may have improved, but the health care industry’s approach to prevention has not gone nearly far enough.
The BaleDoneen Method® challenges the current standard of cardiovascular care by proposing a disease identification and treatment paradigm as opposed to the traditional risk factor paradigm.
The current standard of cardiovascular risk assessment and care simply does not do enough to actually prevent disease initially and prevent it from re-occurring after an event. Even though medical science now saves more lives after heart attack and stroke, the actual number of heart attacks and strokes has not declined at all.
The BaleDoneen Method® goes far beyond standard risk factor assessment and is instead based on an optimal care model. The BaleDoneen Method® features a disease treatment paradigm that identifies whether plaque is present in the arterial bed. The presence of plaque indicates that the patient is at risk for heart attack, ischemic stroke, or diabetes, and if so, presents an individualized treatment protocol.
The BaleDoneen Method® is patented and uses advanced cardiovascular disease detection techniques such as:
- genetic testing
- state-of-the-art ultrasound measurements of major arteries
- high-tech heart scans
- personalized treatment strategies
- “fire panel” tests for insulin resistance
All of these techniques are foundational elements of the BaleDoneen Method® and are responsible for identifying individuals at risk for heart attack and stroke who may otherwise be believed to be in “good health.”
Rather than relying on standard risk assessment that may lead individuals to live with incomplete information which may lead to heart attack and stroke, the BaleDoneen Method can accurately identify “hidden” risk and save lives in the process.

The BaleDoneen Method® is the foundation of our approach to heart attack and stroke prevention. This powerful method focuses on assessing the current health of your heart, blood vessels, and brain – and all contributing factors. With this approach we can prevent (stop your progression toward disease), arrest (stop any disease from worsening) and reverse cardiovascular disease. The principles of the BaleDoneen Method® are outlined in the book, “Beat The Heart Attack Gene” by Bradley Bale, MD and Amy Doneen, DNP.
