There is compelling indication that the best plant remedy for heart disease was already discovered over 150 years ago. Unfortunately, today even alternative medicine has forgotten about ouabain.
A brief summary of the ‘ouabain story’…
In 1861, on the famous Livingstone expedition in Africa, the English botanist John Kirk experienced the sudden disappearance of his heart problems after brushing his teeth. Curious to find an explanation, he noticed that his toothbrush had been in contact with seeds he’d collected from the indigenous people. They used these seeds, from the strophanthus plant, to create a deadly arrow poison.
Back in Europe, these seeds were analyzed and the extracted ‘g-Strophantin’ (the English word for the compound g-Strophantin) was introduced in Germany as a potent heart remedy in the early 20th century.
The advocates – highly respected researchers and authorities in medicine – called ouabain one of the greatest breakthroughs in heart medicine. Ouabain was labeled “the insulin of the heart” and in the 1930’s, E. Edens, the most renowned German heart specialist of the time and Nobel Prize winner announced that “The time will come, in which failure to timely start ouabain therapy will be condemned as medical malpractice.”
Dr. Sroka, a German physician who has been treating many of his patients with this remedy over the last 30 years mentions a few examples that illustrate the unprecedented effects of ouabain:
A clinic in West Berlin in 1984 treated 148 patients suffering from angina pectoris with ouabain capsules. Before the treatment was started their usual medication with beta blockers, calcium ‘antagonists’ and nitrates were stopped. After one week, 122 patients were free from angina complaints, after two weeks it was 146 of them. The side-effects of the previous medication, headaches, dizziness, lack of appetite and circulatory problems were gone. Two patients discontinued the treatment due to intestinal problems.
In the early 1970s, a large coal mine with 1800 underground workers in Germany had an average of three deaths by heart attack per year. In 1974, their company doctor decided to implement an emergency treatment administered by trained helpers with ouabain capsules for those in need. In the following 10 years, there were 2 deaths by heart attack instead of the usually expected 30 deaths. In one case the worker could not get his ouabain capsule.
Dr. Sroka emphasizes that “Ouabain made it possible to drastically cut the rate of death by heart attack in this large coal mine and almost reduced it to zero. This is exemplary!”.
