Founding Member and Speaker for the Bale Doneen Method of Heart Attack and Stroke Prevention
The Bale/Doneen Method is designed to improve and save lives and is being integrated into practice by Physicians and medical professionals around the world.
The Bale/Doneen Method challenges the current “standard of care” by proposing a disease treatment paradigm rather than a risk factor paradigm. The disease treatment paradigm is founded on the discovery of whether plaque is present in the wall of the artery. Finding plaque in any artery in the body places the patient at a greater risk for heart attack, stroke or diabetes and treatment for arterial plaque disease must be provided in an optimal care model. All three of these health care crisis (heart attack, stroke and diabetes), are the largest in terms of cost, morbidity and mortality in the USA, are preventable, and are effectively addressed by the Bale/Doneen Method.
There are six basic elements to the Bale/Doneen Method:
Although cardiologists and heart surgeons across the country have successfully lowered the rate of death from heart attacks, the sheer number of heart attacks and strokes has not been reduced and heart attacks have been the number one cause of death in the USA for the past 100 years.
Interventions such as stents and bypass surgery may effectively treat symptoms such as angina, but fail to treat the root causes of the disease. This explains why many individuals who undergo these procedures often need repeat intervention, or they will go on to suffer a repeated heart attack or stroke.
The Bale/Doneen Method, however, provides optimal care which addresses the important, underlying biological mechanisms of plaque disease which is driven by arterial inflammation.
Our excellent, unprecedented clinical results related to this unique treatment approach to plaque disease, provides the basis for the effectiveness of our Method.
