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.

With this book Mr. Wilde has provided me and other heart patients with an a primer on the recognized “risk factors” of cardiovascular disease. I believe if I had this information much earlier I might well have been able to avoid a need for two separate bypass surgeries.

"This book provides useful insights for physicians as well as patients into the most recent advances in the understanding of heart disease."

In the year or so that we discussed heart problems in general and, more specifically those that related to me since my heart attack. I have found your explanations and knowledge to be invaluable. It led me to have several blood tests done, which revealed certain aspects of my current condition of which neither I nor my cardiologist would have been aware of. Your explanations from the book provided me with an understanding I did not have, which psychologically made it easier for me to deal with my current condition and outlook for the future. My doctor and I learned of an active H. pylori infection, an out of normal homocysteine range, a very high fibrinogen count and a negative APO B classification. Thank you again for all of the time you spent answering my questions and providing me with suggestions, which I found to be extremely useful in working with my doctor in the treatment and care of my own cardiac condition.

A Salute To A Guy Who Has Thrown America A Life Preserver!
As a man who has experienced two heart attacks may I thank you for your class awarding thesis: "Hidden Causes of Heart Attacks". I picked up a copy at my Barnes and Noble and I am on Chapter 5....It is exceptionally well written, flows like a strong current in a major river...It goes on with riveting discoveries, and documentation of Medical studies that corroborate and support the discovery conclusions.... Christian Wilde, as a medical researcher you have simplified the underlying causes of how any of us can meander into a heart attack by not paying attention to the newest discoveries and treatment of heart disease, and leaving everything up to a Doctor without your input and self knowledge of your own body"
Congratulations on a prodigious effort and contribution.....

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.

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 tothe treatment of heart attack, stroke, and congestive heart failure.
Sincerely, John Peric, M.D.
While at a health fair, I decided to have my cholesterol checked. I work out diligently 5 days a week and maintain proper weight so you can imagine my surprise when the total cholesterol tested out at 265 with a 200 LDL! I was at the time uninsured and opted to try two affordable natural supplements outlined in the book. Six weeks later,my cholesterol on retesting showed a drop from 265 to 194 and my LDL from 200 to 132. My liver report was also excellent.
