Treatment for Atherosclerosis:
The Bale/Doneen Difference

The Bale/Doneen Method is designed to improve and save lives and is being integrated into practice by medical providers on a global basis.

The Bale/Doneen Method challenges the current standard of prevention and treatment of atherosclerosis 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 arterial bed. This indicates that the patient is at risk for heart attack, ischemic stroke or diabetes and treatment for atherosclerosis must be provided in an optimal care model. All three of these health care issues, largest in terms of cost, morbidity and mortality, are preventable, and each are addressed by the Bale/Doneen Method.

There are six basic elements to the Bale/Doneen Method:

  • Education of the patient
    Educate the patient on event reality -- what really causes a heart attack or ischemic stroke?
  • Disease evaluation
    Identify, treat, and monitor atherosclerosis.
  • Fire/Inflammation
    Assess and monitor inflammation of the disease.. Learn how to identify when there is a "CAT IN THE GUTTER" and how to ensure it never jumps out.
  • Root causes of disease
    Determine root causes of atherosclerosis so that we can monitor and treat the cause rather than the symptom.
  • Optimal goals to minimize risk
    Establish patient goals based on risk factor modification rather than by standard of care.
  • Genetics
    Develop an individualized care model that is based on each patient's unique genetic make-up, that personalizes and enhances the success of 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. 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 heart attack or stroke.

The Bale/Doneen Method, however, provides optimal care which addresses the important, underlying biological issues of atherosclerosis. Our excellent, unprecedented clinical results related to treatment of atherosclerosus are a convincing result of the effectiveness of our Method.
