A recent study has demonstrated a clear correlation between the presence of a protein marker and the risk of serious cardiovascular disease. Most interesting, from the Matrix Repatterning perspective, is the fact that this protein is directly affected by mechanical stretch or stress on the myocardium.
This simple blood test was an accurate measure of cardiovascular risk, even when echocardiograms were normal, and was better than blood pressure tests and cholesterol levels in predicting future disease. In cases of clinical heart disease, it was even more accurate in forecasting further deterioration.
This study proves conclusively that mechanical stress on the heart is a significant factor in the development of cardiovascular disease. This is directly in agreement with previous cellular research by Ingber and others, an dis what I have discussed at length in our programs (i.e. tissue structure and mechanics determines function).
The lead researcher, Dr. Mary Whooley, states, "We don't have any new way to treat those who are going to die."
I believe that Matrix Repatterning, specifically directed to the heart as a primary restriction, may benefit many potential sufferers.
We are currently pursuing active avenues to develop testing and research in this area.
