Well, it now seems as though not only has the FDA become subsidiary of the pharmaceutical companies, but the AMA and American College of Cardiology as well. It has long been known that taking statin drugs, like Lipitor, Crestor and the like drain your body of CoEnzyme Q-10. Co-Q10 is REQUIRED by all cells to make ATP, the essential substance that is actually used by your body as energy, and what glucose (among other things) becomes. All cells use ATP... the brain needs it, and so does your heart. When the heart cells are deprived of Co-Q10, congestive heart failure almost inevitably results. Recent studies have shown that lowering cholesterol is not only NOT decreasing cardio-vascular disease and stroke, but it clearly INCREASING congestive heart failure (CHF) / disease (CHD)! Moreover statins may be responsible for increasing senile dementia and Alzheimer's disease. Most people are aware of the muscle aches, pains and cramps associatied with taking Statins, but few realize that this is directly due to the lack of Co-Q10 CAUSED by the statins themselves.
So for whom are statins possibly beneficial? For adults with type 2 diabetes, and not being supervised on a proper neutriceutical regimen, and for those with familial or personal histories of severely elevated Cholesterol or Triglycerides.... BUT you need to be supplementing with significant amounts of Co-Q10, and your DC (Doctor of Chiropractic) trained in Nutritional medicine, should be monitoring you. Whether you have concerns about your heart or just back, neck or arm pain. If you were in a car accident or had a worker's comp injury.... Call for an appointment with Dr. Press ASAP. 201-569-1444 and get a cardio-vascular consultation today.
Dr. Boris Prakhina, President and CEO of the ultra modern North Jersey Surgery Center at 520 Sylvan Ave., in Englewood Cliffs, NJ announces the credentialling [ -See letter] of Dr. Press for performing Manipulation Under Anesthesia (MUA) at their facility. Dr. Press, a 4th generation American, has been performing MUA in bergen County for severe back pain, arm pain, neck pain or frozen shoulder syndrome, since 1988 when he was working under a plenary license to practice medicine in the Soviet Union in a joint venture with their then Chief Neurologist of Moscow, Dr. Anatoly Fedin. Dr. Press says "I am especially proud to become a part of this eminent team of highly skilled physicians and surgeons".
Stephen J. Press,DC, PhD, a 4th generation American, was invited in early 1991, by Nicholai Rusak, then Minister of Sport of what was still the Soviet Union, to serve as Chief Physician for their Winter Olympic Team in Albertville, France in 1992.
Naturally, no one knew then that the USSR would break up before the Games. This whole scenario was of course, unprecedented, and required the permission of then President Geo. H. W. Bush, for Dr. Press to represent them and not lose his US Citizenship as an agent of a foreign government. Thus when the team actually marched into Albertville, the Soviet Union had disintegrated, and was 15 separate nations, by that time called simply the "Unified team" (сборная команда). This means that Dr. Press was also the only doctor in Olympic history to have been Chief physician for 15 nations at one Olympic Games!
On Thursday, Jan. 20th, 2011, Dr. Press was the featured speaker for Fisher-Wallace Laboratories, at the home of Charles Avery Fisher, on 5th Avenue, in NYC. The topic of his talk was Cranial Electrical Stimulation, in the treatment of Pain and Insomnia. The lecture was well attended, by press, psychiatrists, DC's and therapists.
