Plaquex Therapy

A powerful, effective series of infusions to help clear clogged arteries

Benefits of Plaquex therapy

Plaquex therapy can normalize cell metabolism by restoring cell membrane integrity and function. This helps to clear out plaque deposits and improve the function of all organs, including the liver and kidneys. Plaquex can improve blood flow properties as evidenced by increased fluidity and decreased viscosity. Plaquex’s effect on important lipolytic enzymes often results in reduced LDL cholesterol and triglycerides, and increased HDL cholesterol, also known as your “good” cholesterol.

What is Plaquex therapy?

Plaquex is a compounded medicine that contains polyunsaturated phosphatidylcholine (PC). PC is a major component of all cell membranes in the body. It also serves as the transport vehicle for cholesterol, such as HDL and LDL. Cell membranes consist of a double layer of PC molecules. Embedded in between these molecules are receptors for signaling proteins such as hormones and neurotransmitters. Cholesterol molecules are also embedded in this layer to give the cell its stability. As we age, the PC in the cell membranes becomes damaged by toxins, detergents, free radicals, heavy metals, smoking, hypertension, and high blood sugar as well as high levels of stress hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline. With aging, the body is no longer able to produce enough PC to repair this damage. Consequences of this damage are cardiovascular disease with plaque deposits in the blood vessels, liver damage, kidney damage and brain damage. Besides its structural importance to all cell membranes, PC also has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

Therapeutic uses

Plaquex has been studied in many countries since the 1950s. Plaquex is used to treat atherosclerosis. It is given to patients suffering from angina pectoris whose coronary arteries contain plaque deposits, but also in patients with carotid artery plaque and peripheral plaque in the legs causing claudication pain when walking. Because of its effect on the liver and the kidneys, it is also used to improve the function of both these organs. As an added benefit, it can also improve skin texture and provide a more youthful appearance.

The importance of maintenance therapy

Following completion of the treatment, it is highly recommended that you see your doctor regularly. As Plaquex does not treat the underlying cause of plaque deposits, it is recommended to undergo a maintenance program of 10-12 treatments every year as a preventative measure. Should symptoms start returning you may require another small series of treatments. Your lifestyle (smoking, drinking, healthy diet) as well as your condition of health (e.g. diabetes) will dictate your results.

Possible side effects

Plaquex treatments are extremely safe. The most common side effect is diarrhea which can be easily managed by reducing the frequency of treatment and the use of medication. In Asian patients there may be a feeling of fatigue and a drop in blood pressure. Because of this possibility doctors are advised to give a lower dosage to such patients. Very rarely there may be a slight burning sensation at the infusion site. If this happens, let your doctor know so steps are taken to prevent this in future treatments. Occasionally the liver enzymes and the cholesterol values will go up. Studies have shown that this is due to an increased clearance of cholesterol from the plaque deposits and is only transient. Values will return to normal.
