Dr. Ardis 0:11
Welcome to The Dr. Ardis show. I'm your host, Dr. Brian Ardis hope you've had a great week. I don't know if you've heard, but there's been supposedly lockdowns that are occurring by now. And this is posting here in America and push for new COVID 19 vaccines for some new variant called Eris, you don't need to worry about that. We're so excited today we're gonna be doing presentations and discussing on what's the narrative right now going on around COVID-19 in America and worldwide. And I have, in my opinion, the greatest medical expert to discuss that today. And Dr. Peter McCullough has become a very dear colleague of mine and somebody I absolutely trust and love traveling with. But I love listening to him articulate the warnings, the concerns in relationship to the COVID-19 vaccines and the various reported injuries and incidences that we've traveled around the country around the world discussing. So we're going to be discussing some of those side effects that are being published about those shots. And in relationship to post COVID syndrome, which they call a long hauler COVID syndrome. AFib is actually correlated to both a long haul or COVID symptomatology that people are struggling with for years after having mild cases of COVID and also post getting the COVID-19 shots. After this break, we'll be joined with Dr. Peter McCullough.
Dr. Ardis 1:26

Obviously, while there was listening to him, trying to figure out how to listen to me. It's Dr. Peter McCullough. Welcome to the studio. You're the first person to come into this in home studio where we created the Dr. Ardis show studio. We're very excited to have you here.
Dr. Peter McCollough 2:51
I'm so honored to be in the palatial plate Plano studios of the Ardiss Empire, the media empire really Dr. Ardiss become a media icon. Interfacing in this difficult time in the pandemic. I'm delighted to be here. We're going to take on some issues moving from the pandemic response COVID and the vaccines into my favorite topic as a cardiologist, atrial fibrillation.
Dr. Ardis 3:17
Now, is that really one of your favorite actual topics in cardiology and practice a
Dr. Peter McCollough 3:21
little secret? A fib? is job security for cardiologist? I'll tell you when we get to why.
Dr. Ardis 3:28
Well, I'm very excited to have you here because in this month of October, they actually have it listed as a national health awareness month for atrial fibrillation. And I thought, man, wouldn't it be great to have Dr. Peter McCullough, one of the most published in the world's history cardiologist with research studies galore. And in clinical practice, still, I assumed you would be somebody I could trust to articulate to the audience's educate them on what atrial fibrillation is, how many people are affected, and then we'll get into some discussions here later on in this broadcast, about how diet impacts atrial fibrillation is what is published. There's some very simple things in diet they've actually published in the last five years that are out of absolutely within a week or two improving atrial fibrillation outcomes and people. But I really would like you to talk about first, what is it you're seeing and having brought to your attention, as really the leader I would consider as the medical leader in this anti COVID movement or the narrative surrounding the dis, the misconceptions and the outright awful reporting of injuries to the COVID-19 vaccines and long hauler symptoms in relationship to heart health. That's one of the things I enjoy listening to you, but
Dr. Peter McCollough 4:37
a lot to unpack there. Let me give you a quick update. We are still in the Omicron outbreak. Two papers now from Japan of interest member the omicron outbreak started around end of November, December 2020 to 2021 I'm sorry, two papers from Japan very detailed. Computational mutational, analysis have concluded Omicron was actually manipulated. It was manipulated in the lab. It had to be because it was so different. It broke through natural and vaccine immunity. It closed the immunologic door on Delta, it massively extended the pandemic. And it is almost identical to what was mentioned by Pfizer executive trician. Jordan Walker, who in that Project Veritas sting operation said that Pfizer is contemplating directed evolution, that indeed they would alter the virus in order for it to live on so they can produce more vaccines. And that's exactly what happened with the BA four ba five vaccines completely ineffective, but they did market another vaccine booster they came out. We're in Omicron. And now Pfizer, Maderna, HHS, and the White House and Biden are all juiced up on having a vaccine against the most recent Omicron. So variant called X bb 1.5. What's the problem? It's already come and gone. X bb 1.5, less than 1% of all strains. And now what's coming in is Eros, Eros, which is the Greek goddess for discord and strife and strife. I mean, how perfectly named so Eris is eg five, next one in line is FL the Eris is about 20% of all the strains, and it is causing a clinical syndrome and it is on the rise. We're seeing it in our patients. My mom has had it in senior living. So can you talk about the symptoms, you're seeing very, very mild sore throat, runny nose, no pulmonary involvement, no fever that I'm seeing in my patients, others have reported and definitely no systemic illness, nothing that would cause a hospitalization. Now our government agencies are reporting hospitalizations, but that's a product of people being hospitalized for other things, and just re instituting hospital wide testing. That's what it's not. It's not adjudicated. COVID. So I want everyone to look at that and ask themselves, are these adjudicated COVID cases are they people happen to happen to be testing positive right now, clinically, I don't think people even need to test because it's so mild. My mom is an example. We use the virus subtle nasal sprays and washes. Remember, dilute pop it on iodine, xylitol, oil, silver, there's almost anything works in the nose and mouth. But we need to prevention twice a day. And then after treatment. We go on four hours.
Dr. Ardis 7:29
Dr. Richard Bartlett was with me this last week and you probably saw him there at the reawaken tour in Las Vegas. You were there. So Richard Barlow is talking to me in General Mike Flynn, about this new variant coming out and he's like, budesonide. So I love hearing you mentioned that budesonide can work and that it's in that this isn't an alarm situation for this new variant?
Dr. Peter McCollough 7:46
No, it's not. In fact, I just advised on a patient to go on steroids. It was she's in her 70s. And she's never had COVID before. So this is her first exposure to the vaccines are irrelevant. Whether you've had or not doesn't work. But whether or not you've had COVID really matters. So what I want people to do is when they you know, have a new cold this fall. The first thing to check is Have you really had COVID before well documented case, if we have that, then we know the risk stratification is very low res
Dr. Ardis 8:15
is good. Can you explain how they would know they had COVID? Well, obviously,
Dr. Peter McCollough 8:18
they would know it historically, if they've had a consistent contextual case of COVID. And they've tested positive and everything fit or they knew it, because the doctor had checked antibodies against the nucleocapsid. So we can detect that the natural infection causes antibodies against the nucleocapsid, the ball of virus as well as antibodies against the spike protein to spine on the surface of the virus, the vaccine only causes the spike protein antibodies. So
Dr. Ardis 8:44
having a medical professional actually analyze or test for the antibodies against COVID. Previously, right shortly,
Dr. Peter McCollough 8:50
we're going to actually have the spike protein assay now invitrogen is one company Japanese company will have that I predict that will be the one of the most widely used essays in clinical medicine. Because we have found out that after the vaccine, very important papers published by Germany by Brogan and colleagues, after the vaccine spike protein generated from the vaccine, there's a way to figure that out using what's called mass spec circulating in the bloodstream for six months after the vaccine and that's as long as they've looked after the natural infection. We don't know how long it circulates in the ones that they tested in the broken study. Nobody had it circulated just in the vaccinated.
Dr. Ardis 9:32
Well, Peter McHale I love having you in studio and I love hearing you speak because you I actually know by the things you say that you're actually researching the stuff that I am also researching for example, you just brought up invitrogen. I've never even heard another professional even talked about that. So I want to tell you what it is I know about invitrogen. I was actually on the NHS website a couple weeks ago and I wanted to know how do they manufacture these COVID-19 vaccines and on the NIH website. It actually has a pamphlet for all lay people at home and patients and it describes the title is How did we manufacture the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines. And it says right on the pamphlet, we did not put SARS cov two virus in any of the mRNA vaccines. This is why we can say you will not get COVID from our shots. And then it says what we selected to put as the agent inside the vaccines to trigger an immune response for COVID. They said our vaccine candidate we chose was the spike protein gene. And we suspended it in a plasmid what's called a DNA plasmid a circular DNA structure, and they inserted the spike protein gene in it. Do you know who made the spike protein gene DNA plasmids for all the COVID-19 vaccines? invitrogen Wow. So of course, they're gonna be able to create an assay they created the DNA plasmids with
Dr. Peter McCollough 10:56
my protein infused good research. Dr. Ardis, this is
Dr. Ardis 10:59
one of the things that we actually presented at the healing for the ages conference in September was to take people through who designed the plasmids with the spike protein gene in them that the NIH has published is what they put in the vaccine, we
Dr. Peter McCollough 11:09
need to add invitrogen to the biopharmaceutical comp complex. This is our book I published with John Leake best selling author, dashing single man in Dallas, by the way, ladies, John Leake, best selling True Crime author, I'm the medical doctor, the biopharmaceutical complex is the syndicate of companies that are working together with government agencies in order to drive this pandemic narrative. And it's a worldwide collaboration. All these companies are making a ton of money.
Dr. Ardis 11:42
Can you hold that book up? Again, just hold it up there and then watch it to your side if you want to. But I just want you to talk a little bit. Dr. Peter McCullough, you have been involved with the NIH for decades, you have actually gone to the NIH and participated in these conferences, I guess, where they would come together with cardiologist from around the world and discuss issues that are problematic right now in the world. And then medically coming up with solutions medically for those conditions where you're not sure. I
Dr. Peter McCollough 12:08
mean, we had in cardiology, that was called Bethesda conferences because Bethesda Maryland is one of the suburbs around Washington and this National Institutes of Health USFDA, the pharmaceutical industry, academia, practicing doctors, and we would get together there'd be an agenda, I've been one of the presenters there. And we would tackle a topic of which there was a sufficient gaps in knowledge regarding the disease, its diagnostic approach its management. And then we try to you know, generate a research papers from it come up with new what's called request for applications where the NIH that'd be the next round of funding. And we try to make medical progress. Let me tell you in SARS, cov, two outbreak in COVID, 19 crisis, not a single Bethesda conference, not a single open conference, where we would come together and discuss important topics, trying to help Americans through this really time of great controversy,
Dr. Ardis 13:04
I just want you to know that I have a great appreciation for the fact that you participated in those events on behalf of the NIH in Bethesda, Maryland. For years, you participate in those, I want you to talk a little bit with me and with the audiences. How shocking has it been to you to find out the lack of effort to call a Bethesda conference of any kind in the last four years? How disappointed Have you been to realize the institution's you've worked inside of for decades? How surprised and shocked, have you been with the knowledge and awareness that so many government agencies, pharmaceutical industries, medical organizations, have been a part of this entire narrative for the last years?
Dr. Peter McCollough 13:45
I'd characterize my reaction to that as shocked and appalled. And here's the reason why these institutions we relied on we relied on the FDA to safeguard Americans from any harmful effects of drugs and biopharmaceutical products. We rely on the National Institutes of Health as a beacon of truth in terms of funding research, funding, high quality research, in fact, getting NIH funding in academia for a professor of medicine, of which I held that title was a high honor. And then the Center for Disease Control, where I trained in Seattle Hirsi Washington. You know, the top medicine probe in the United States, many of our graduates became CDC officers, it was the most prestigious thing someone could do in the 1980s. All three of these agencies have absolutely plummeted in terms of the reputation and trust. And I'll tell you what the most recent development This is shocking paper by Michaels and colleagues hit the preprint server in the last few days. Listen to this. When Pfizer completed its randomized trials of the messenger RNA vaccine, there was a data cut off where they said okay, beyond this, we have to write the briefing booklet for the FDA. So the data cut off was in November, the FDA meeting was in December so they needed time to produce the booklet. So they Pfizer comes up and they have the core slides the briefing booklet and they go into the FDA presentation. I've done this before, I've been a panelist on FDA panels. I've been a consultant. I've been in the bullpen, I've done it all. Let me tell you what, when they presented the data on this, Pfizer presented essentially a neutral safety story based on the data up to the cut cut point. And the committee accepted this. Nobody on Pfizer side or on the committee side said, Did anything happen after your arbitrary cutoff date? Because people were still on the product? Did anything happen after it? No one asked the question. Michael's basically got the dossier. And sure enough, from the time the data cut off to the time of the meeting, there were more deaths, cardiovascular deaths that happened with the Pfizer vaccine, and that group together on December 11, of 2020 2020. When they EUA approved the product, it was actually in the data that there was over a three fold increased risk of cardiovascular death with a Pfizer vaccine. So what I'm telling you is if they just had proper meeting procedures, they updated the core slides and presented all the data up until the time of the meeting on in December, these vaccines never would have been approved. Pfizer vaccine was never safe
Dr. Ardis 16:15
and credible and very disgusting, in my opinion. Now let's talk about how many papers you've published in the last 30 something years of your career. And then how shocked were you to find out some of those have been retracted or refused to be published? You don't worry about that, because I've never published my own paper and taking the effort to do that. But you have many, many times. And over the last four years, how many times has that happened? How many times this shock you
Dr. Peter McCollough 16:39
it's true in academic medicine, the peer reviewed manuscript, which is typically 2500. To read, I've had as many as 7000 words 30 References up to 200 references, multiple tables and figures. It's essentially like a PhD thesis. In our field, if someone has 25 papers cited by the National Library of Medicine that's considered good enough to be professor of medicine 25. Now, as we sit here today, I am, I believe, at 685 685. So I'm monks, the most published physicians in the world, because in my prior research, prior to COVID, I basically started a whole new field called cardio renal medicine, the interface between heart and kidney disease. We had many discoveries from in vitro diagnostics to therapeutics, it was red hot, I was at the very beginning, I'm considered the the grandfather of that field, if you will, and and it was incredibly productive. You know, I published in New England Journal medicine Lancet, all the top journals as the editor of cardio renal medicine, the journal, I was the editor of reviews in cardiovascular medicine, I was the inaugural editor of the textbook cardio renal medicine. So I was at the top of that field, the most published cardiologist in that field in the world in history on the most published cardiologist in the field of nephrology, so I worked across two fields. So what happened when COVID started, I said, Listen, this is the opportunity. This is it. This is the academic opportunity of a lifetime. I'm sure it's going to be crowded with all kinds of infectious disease doctors who are going to try to invent new treatment protocols, and internist and critical care doctors. But I'm going to put my best foot forward and I got a big grant, investigational new drug application frustrating to work with was with hydroxychloroquine. The second one was with the module on vaccine I was positioned leading in a vaccine trial. Third one was a Japanese product called rematch Habana kept going and going. I now have over 70 peer reviewed publications listed in the National Library of Medicine and COVID-19, including the most important first multi-drug treatment protocol published an American Journal of Medicine in August of 2020. And now the first detoxification approach for those who've taken the vaccines published in the Journal of American physician and surgeons, so you're smiling, but it's always good to be first. All those of us in in medicine, understand medicines competitive, and we have to move quickly. When we see an opportunity.
Dr. Ardis 19:08
I'm smiling because I get excited because I know just what an expert you are in the field of what we're going to be discussing, which is two things. What are the cardiovascular effects of the COVID 19 vaccine? Have they impacted the heart health of young elderly in middle aged human beings on the planet?
Dr. Peter McCollough 19:26
For sure there is a an array of cardiovascular manifestations. Why? Because the vaccines circulate in the body, the messenger RNA circulates in the body at least a month, if not longer. That's been demonstrated the spike protein as we've covered circulates in the body, six months, maybe a year more and the heart draws myocardial blood flow, and it does so dynamically. So at baseline there is a baseline rate of myocardial blood for the blood flow by the ways during the resting phase of the heart. diastole. So it's unique. That's right isn't one of the reasons why cholesterol builds up there preferentially. And then during exercise, the heart really draws blood flow you can increase to three four folds called myocardial Flow Reserve. So the bottom line is, the heart is being seeded with messenger RNA and COVID 19 vaccine material, the spike protein is been physically seen in the heart by biopsies in living people by bone Meyer and colleagues, it's been shown in multiple autopsy studies at the heart gets loaded with the spike protein. So because of that, the heart has all kinds of manifestations because foreign protein should not be deposited in the heart. So there's heart inflammation, myocarditis, precipitation of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, myocardial infarction and cardiac arrest, primary cardiac arrest without myocarditis that's been demonstrated our topic for today, atrial fibrillation, atrial fibrillation can be provoked by this, and then a cardiovascular syndrome, which is so common I saw patients today with this. It's called pots, and it's not the pots and pans in your kitchen. It's postnatal Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome. Remember that for the next cocktail party. And what it means is, the spike protein gets deposited in the heart, as well as in the brain, the adrenal glands. And then there is a stimulation of antibodies that stimulate some receptors recent paper out on this fascinating. The bottom line is the system gets revved and it's inappropriately producing too much adrenaline at the wrong times. People feel their heart pounding, they feel fluctuations in blood pressure, they don't feel well, they can't exercise. And it can last for years after taking the vaccines and we've developed solutions for this in our clinic. Finally, there's some catastrophic things that happen to your neck dissection, which is a sudden ripping of the major blood tube in the body, and then uncontrolled hypertension that leads to to to hemorrhagic stroke. That's just the cardiovascular manifestations. But today we're going to focus on atrial fibrillation because it's a lead in because atrial fibrillation is the most common heart arrhythmia that we deal with. That
Dr. Ardis 22:01
is one of the things I've learned in the research and preparation for this interview was this is the most common like cardiovascular symptomatology leading to cardiovascular disease or failure of the heart in general cardiac arrest.
Dr. Peter McCollough 22:11
Sure, if you're at the golf club, and you ever want to strike up a conversation, you see somebody there in the shop, you can say, buddy, do you have atrial fibrillation by chance? And it's just so common it they start? Oh, yeah, I do have afib. But what do we know? Atrial Fibrillation occurs lifetime in about 15% of us, 15% of us. And so it is extremely common. So the risk factors are older age, very young, you're
Dr. Ardis 22:37
gonna get a note in the second segment, we're gonna break but I want to I want you to talk about this because I don't know. Have you done research studies and publish them during your career on atrial fibrillation? I have rocket, is there a correlation between kidney health and heart health and a fibrillation there is a rock and so I'm sitting with the expert that can actually educate us on what atrial fibrillation is what it means for your health. What are some of the symptoms of that? What are the risk factors of having it how you can tell yourself maybe that you're experiencing that and what you should do to get checked out? All right, we're gonna be right back after the break. Thank you, Dr. Freda McCullough, for being
Dr. Ardis 23:14
welcome back. I'm your host, Dr. Brian Ardiss. This is Dr. Ardis show. And we're hanging out with Dr. Peter McCullough to actually educate you as much as possible on the real risks of having atrial fibrillation, having symptoms of atrial fibrillation, how that correlates to overall health, your activities of daily living? And then what are the risk factors long term if we don't address that? And what are some real basic things we can do? We're going to be discussing that here. All right. So Dr. Peter McCullough, we're excited to have you with us today in Studio Thanks for taking this time to educate our audiences because I like experts in their field, and you're one of my favorites and cardiology. So please, I want you to take the audience's through explain what atrial fibrillation is. And then I have some slides I'll put up and we can discuss will both be on the screen. But I'm going to put these things up there and take the audience through some real basic definitions, some statistics, and then some publications that have come up in the last 10 years about diet, nutrition, some minerals, vitamins, and one particularly that I know you've been hot on for the last year probably. And that's a substance that actually comes out of pineapple extract, and it's called bromelain. But we will talk about that wrapping up here and its impact on how it benefits AFib because I was doing my own research and figured out oh my god, Dr. Mercola has come up with this concept for a few nutrients to help with Spike proteins. And one of those actually has a direct and indirect potential to improve atrial fibrillation outcomes. Alright, so I want you to explain to the audience is what truly is atrial fibrillation then I'm going to put up on the screen some real simple like diagrams of the heart and I'd love you to educate the audiences on what they're looking at. One of the things I found very empowering is when you're educating audiences, most people do not have the knowledge you have in your field, or in my field, so I'd like show Intel. I'm going to show you what we know. This is how the hearts design this is how God designed it, this or if you're evolutionist This is how the human heart evolved to become the pump for your blood system and supplying nutrients in life and oxygen to your body. So we'll put those up on the screen I'd love you to talk the audience through real simply, this is what the heart is, this is how it's designed. This is where atrial fibrillation is an issue but please define for the audience what atrial fibrillation means.
Dr. Peter McCollough 25:27
No wonder so many millions of people follow you Dr. Ardiss me your wrist here. Let's take a feeling I'm feeling Dr. Ardiss is pulse here. And it's regular. A pulse should be regular should be just beat, beat beat. Now it can vary a little bit when one takes a deep breath. But it should be regular. Atrial fibrillation is irregularly irregular, it's the heart rhythm loses its control from its normal conduction system into a chaotic rhythm from the atria and we'll show them in a minute. So the first thing one would notice is that it's irregularly irregular. So not only is the beat, but baba, baba, bah bum, bum, bum bum, bum bum. But it says it's chaotic. But each beat itself pumps out a different amount of blood. That's the reason why the pulse is no longer even a weak one a strong one would emotion
Dr. Ardis 26:22
feel it themselves without even feeling well. That's what
Dr. Peter McCollough 26:24
I want people to be able to detect this to some degree. Now some people have heightened cardiac awareness. They're like, Oh, Dr. McCulloh, I have a fib and they're just like, boom, they nailed it. Now you and you they verify it. Other people like my father in law, had it for 40 years, never felt it. And I'd say Do you know your atrial fibrillation? He goes, What's that he just he never feel it. But so the history of cardiac awareness is really good if people know they have it because it's useful. And nowadays, there's there's ways they can feel palpitations, for sure. Atrial Fibrillation removes the upper governor of the heart rate. So normally heart rate is 220 minus your age.
Dr. Ardis 27:08
Okay, now Doctor Ardiss are that to 20 minus your age, okay, Doctor Ardiss
Dr. Peter McCollough 27:11
is only 30 years old based on my assessment. So 220 minus 30. Doctor, Ardiss should be able to achieve a maximum heart rate of 190. Well, atrial fibrillation doesn't pay attention to that rule. And so it can just go at rates of 200 to 20 to 40. And so what's the problem of irregular heartbeat, going super fast for a long period of time, they can actually lead the heart into heart failure. So people feel palpitations, they feel short of breath. Sometimes they feel chest discomfort or chest pain. The other concern that we have with atrial fibrillation, this is super important, super important, because the heartbeat is not regular flow in the heart is not in a normal pattern. And little nooks and crannies of the heart can form a blood clot, a blood clot and believe me a blood clot, even as big around as a tip of a pen can cause a stroke. So atrial fibrillation because the blood flows through the heart, it hijacks one of the first place the blood goes to the brain. A blood clot can shoot from in the heart to the brain with atrial fibrillation and causes stroke. It's such a big deal. That one of the principles of treatment involves blood thinners. We'll talk about that later. So atrial fibrillation. People say Dr. McCulloh, why do I care if I'm an atrial fibrillation, I said one because it could put you in a heart failure. Number two, it could cause a stroke. Some people it makes them feel bad. My father in law never bothered him. He has perfect, you know, exercise capabilities. Other people, they can't hardly exercise with it. So that's atrial fibrillation, 15% of adults will get it risk factors older age. So the older we get, the more likely anything else wrong with a heart as if there's a heart valve problem prior heart surgery. We know with cardiac vascular surgery, for instance, there's a 50% chance they actually get AFib in the hospital once the heart is opened and they have a valve replacement. Any form of coronary heart disease or blockages can cause it prior bypass surgery, angioplasty and stenting. Very importantly, the things that people do in their lifestyle can cause it, you're not going to like this. And a lot of your fans aren't gonna like this doctor up but I'm going to tell it to you straight. One of the big risk factors for atrial fibrillation, alcohol, yes, even one drink a month can precipitate atrial fibrillation that's in this presentation. So I can tell you and many of your fans your 10s of millions of fans know that I myself am a strict teetotaler means I don't drink a drop. Now I know what it tastes like. But I don't drink a drop. So I'm going to have less of a risk greater fibrillation let me tell you another risk factor. Another risk factor, obesity, obesity, too much body weight And it's true for both of these factors if one stops drinking, if one loses weight, they lessen. In fact, alcohols, you've met a randomized trial from Melbourne, Australia. That was like
Dr. Ardis 30:10
that's it this presentation. Oh, tell you what to show the audience is,
Dr. Peter McCollough 30:14
you know, you can't beat the scholarship of Dr. Ardiss. And that's reason why so many people fall on. So those are the risk factors. So prior cardiovascular disease, alcohol overweight, I think, to some degree excess caffeine. You know, people, people like Starbucks all day long. Today, Dr. McCulloh, if I have, you know, two cups of coffee in the morning is that risk factor? Not really. But you know, students, if you've ever been to the airport, you see people line up a Starbucks at like, 4pm in the afternoon. Those are the people you know, sometimes I swing by and I just kind of check their pulse if they're in atrial fibrillation, because that's too much caffeine.
Dr. Ardis 30:48
What about sugar? Diabetes, I read over and over and over with excess blood sugar, diabetes,
Dr. Peter McCollough 30:52
the state, not the blood sugar, per se, but diabetes, the stage just because diabetes cause was called glycation of tissues, anything that changes the tissues of the heart. So you know, sugar molecules, changing modifying proteins in the heart. Diabetes is a risk factor. High blood pressure is a risk factor, for instance. In fact, there's a way of integrating a score, that is a risk predictor for afib. But it's also a risk predictor for stroke. And we rely on it in medicine is called the Chad Vasque to score.
Dr. Ardis 31:23
Never heard of that. Oh, come on. It's not in my presentation. Alright. So you got to educate us. Okay.
Dr. Peter McCollough 31:27
So in cardiology, we love what's called acronyms. Acronyms are, you know, letter abbreviations for something, Chad's Vasques, too. And so it's it stands for a variety of, of risk factors, including high blood pressure, female age, prior history of heart failure, that C atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, diabetes as the D, and then any prior vascular disease, so we actually add up risk factors. So let's say I had a course ages in there. So let's say I had a 75 year old woman who had diabetes, and she had a prior history of heart failure. Well, that's a Chad's VAs score of four. And so we can actually relate that to what's the annual risk of stroke without blood thinners? And the answer is for that example, it's probably about a 10% annual risk of stroke without blood thinners. So when doctors prescribe blood thinners, we reduce the risk of stroke from whatever that chez VAs score was by 90%.
Dr. Ardis 32:30
What are the most common blood thinners they prescribe?
Dr. Peter McCollough 32:33
Nowadays, most common blood thinners I use generic names, a Pixa, Ban reiver Roxa, Ban, and Debbie gatien. Those are the most frequent ones used. You know, our other one we use previously was warfarin. Okay, but that's not used very much anymore. Really. We use the novel drugs, we use the novel drugs. Aspirin is not good enough unless somebody has a chance vasca one. So if I had a 55 year old woman, and that was only her only risk was being a woman for stroke. I'd say listen, probably aspirin alone.
Dr. Ardis 33:04
Got it. Awesome. All right, you ready to start going through this presentation? All right. I hope I hold up here. Yep, you are. You're the expert. I have
Dr. Peter McCollough 33:11
to tell the audience Dr. Ardiss gave me no preparation that this was about atrial fibrillation. So you're watching me live as I move through his exactly right Dr. Ardiss show.
Dr. Ardis 33:23
Alright, so as we go along here, Dr. Peter McCullough. Here we go. We're going to read what the CDC says see if it matches what you said atrial fibrillation is it does perfectly because you are the expert.
Dr. Peter McCollough 33:37
irregularly irregular, Okay, keep going. So
Dr. Ardis 33:39
atrial fibrillation The CDC says, often called afib, or AF is the most common type of treated heart. A rhythmic is just like you explained. Now, I learned in chiropractic school. This thing that used to be like this, the normal heart sound should sound like this lub dub lub dub. Did you ever hear that? It does not? What does it sound like with a arrhythmias? Do it for me? The
Dr. Peter McCollough 34:04
irregular, that is
Dr. Ardis 34:05
irregular, that's what you're gonna hear. Alright. So it's estimated that 12 million people in the United States have AFib
Dr. Peter McCollough 34:10
Yeah, that's about right. It's 15% lifetime risk. But remember, it's largely people over 65 which is a smaller group. And as this looks fine European descent that's you and me. Ardiss, so you know, everybody is is really he descended from a Viking
Dr. Ardis 34:26
mine. Now I'm my Irish leprechaun.
Dr. Peter McCollough 34:29
I'm Irish and the Vikings used to beat on a Irish as history is recorded. So yes, people European descent, increases with age women generally have longer men.
Dr. Ardis 34:39
This fits the Chad demographic. You just gave us that evaluation. All right now, Study Finds connection. This is the American Heart Association. Can you confirm that's what that logo is in the top left Peter McCullough That's the American Heart Association, the
Dr. Peter McCollough 34:51
American Heart and you know what patients hospitalized with COVID 19, nuanced AFib it's true. Being hospitalized with COVID is very stressful and FM can develop and hospitalizations for pneumococcal pneumonia, sepsis and other problems. But it is true. We did see patients who have new onset Afib with or COVID hospitalization.
Dr. Ardis 35:10
So this was one in 20 is what they said and hospitalized patients were developing new onset of afib. This is out of Dallas, Texas, the same article, September 8 2020. At least 2.7 million Americans are living with afib it notes, but this is where they discuss the one in 20 patients hospitalized with COVID 19. We're experiencing afib. All right now this is a demographic or a diagram of the heart. And I would just like you to point out, they call it atrial fibrillation, there's four main chambers of the heart, correct,
Dr. Peter McCollough 35:41
right. For chambers. The lower ones are the ventricles, the right ventricle and blue, the left ventricle in red. And then the upper ones are the atria. This is the right atrium, and the left atrium is is foreshortened, and it has the aorta overlying it. But let me tell you what all the action is in the left atrium. So the left atrium that's where the pulmonary veins return the blood. And because there is not a continuous back wall to the left atrium, in terms of a cardiac muscle cells is interrupted by these four cardiac veins. That's the source of atrial fibrillation, because when the electricity is not smoothly conducted across, you know, homogeneous tissue, that's when we can have extra beats, even what's called circular beats. What's called wavelets. And very important paper from France years ago, 1980s I believe his name is Hans McGarry published that, in fact, AFib comes out of the pulmonary veins. So one of the strategies later on is called an ablation. And an ablation is actually isolating the tissue around the pulmonary veins. So the AFib can kind of come down the veins into the atrium and take over.
Dr. Ardis 36:53
Very cool now you talked about a pin size, even clot, even with afib stroke a tip of a pen, right, so paperclip. Yeah. So looking here at this diagram I have here it's got a pretty good view of the pulmonary artery, like you just mentioned, the pulmonary veins, you've got the right atrium, left atrium, can you talk a little bit about describe to the audience is what they're looking at how does blood flow through the heart chambers and get back to the lungs, blood flows into the brain?
Dr. Peter McCollough 37:19
Yeah, blood flows from the venous system and enters into the right atrium into the right ventricle out to the lungs gets oxygen returned to the pulmonary veins, the back of the left atrium, and then from there, blood goes from left atrium to the left ventricle, and then it's ejected out through the aorta which lays behind here. And so because of that blood returning to the left atrium, that's where the clots can form. The blood can pick up a blood clot in atrial fibrillation from the left atrium, and then carry it right through the ventricle and boom up to the carotid arteries and causes stroke. We are so worried about this believe it in cardiology not in cardiology we do a test called a transesophageal echocardiogram where we ultrasound the heart from behind actually through a probe through the mouth. And we are right on top of the the less called left atrial appendage, that's where 90% of the clots form, and we can actually see the blood clots there.
Dr. Ardis 38:07
Wow, that's awesome. We don't have that technology and chiropractic practices.
Dr. Peter McCollough 38:12
Well, I tell you what, you wouldn't like it. We call it a gaggle gram because it's like doing an upper endoscopy. All right, I love it
Dr. Ardis 38:18
is there gonna be a two minute little videos yeah watches. Well let the bodies just watch it.
Your heart is a muscle that pumps blood around your body. It's made up of four chambers, two at the top called the atria and two at the bottom called ventricles. Your sinus node sends out electrical impulses. Atrial fibrillation, or air for short, is when other areas of the atria send out electrical impulses to these irregular impulses cause the atria to twitch. When this happens, blood isn't pumped out effectively, which could cause a blood clot to form. If this clot travels to your brain, it can lead to a stroke. When your heart isn't pumping blood properly, it can lead to symptoms such as tiredness, dizziness, or feeling faint shortness of breath or palpitations. How AF affects you will determine the treatment you need. Some people with F like Harry only have mild symptoms or may not experience any symptoms at all. Harry noticed something might not be right when he felt his pulse was irregular and sometimes fast. Harry was at higher risk of AF because of his age and high blood pressure. Those with a heart valve problem are also at a high risk. It's important that Harry avoids further strain on his heart by getting treatment for his AF to reduce his risk of stroke or heart failure. The best course of treatment for Harry was anticoagulant medicine called Warfarin to reduce his risk of having a stroke, followed by a cardioversion to try and restore his normal heart rhythm. However, some people may need other treatment, such as ablation, or other suitable medication. Thanks to his treatment, Harry's AF is manageable, and he can return to work and exercise when he feels ready.

Dr. Ardis 40:29
Alright, so was that a pretty good summary?
Dr. Peter McCollough 40:32
That was pretty solid now? Why did she have a British accent? I have to tell you, there's a reason why British accent doubles the perceived intelligence not actual, but perceived. It's true. You learned it here on the Ardis show? Sure everything she showed you was correct. The management I think was what people really want to focus in on so we lose weight, we stop drinking alcohol, blood thinners, and that we come to a pathway and a fork in the road. One is called rate control. That is listen, we're going to leave you in AFib just control the heart rate. We can use three classes of drugs beta blockers, calcium channel blockers into toxin and blood thinners. That's it. That's my father in law him just leave it in afib. The other choice is to try to put the heart back into sinus rhythm. So in that example, they shock the heart that's called a cardioversion. It's not that scary. We put patients to sleep with conscious sedation, they don't feel it. And they get an electrical jolt like we would do when we do CPR. But we actually shocked the heart. It's called a DC cardioversion. It's very safe, effective. And then we see if that alone doesn't restore the sinus rhythm and it holds that many times will shock the heart and we'll just be observing five minutes later spec in a fib. So oh, great, that didn't work too well. And then we move on to what's called an ablation. And ablation is when we put a catheter internally in the system find with these extra beats are and actually isolate them around the pulmonary veins that used was called cryo energy, or it was called radiofrequency ablation. There can even be surgeries where they were the heart is opened up and particular lines of blocker installs called the maze procedure. You know, whole variety of techniques can get very elaborate, trying to restore sinus rhythm. There's a grouping of drugs that we use, it really depends if the heart has normal pumping function, we can use a range of drugs from path unknown to flecainide. And and enough Adelaide, common ones. Some of them are pretty serious drugs, we have to start in the hospital, it's kind of a big deal. The one drug that you'll see people on it just has special side effects and want people to know about it's called amiodarone. amiodarone affects the thyroid, the liver and the lungs. So it has side effects and we have to keep watch at Blueskin can be a side effect. But you'll see a variety of different drugs used if we're trying to maintain sinus rhythm. So maintaining sinus rhythm takes a lot of effort, it can be worthwhile, because patients feel better. If they're in sinus rhythm long enough, we think probably this risk of stroke goes down. If we stay in atrial fibrillation there is this physical risk of heart failure and stroke, but we try to manage it with the drugs. And so each person is different. No penalties for either choice. They have been randomized trials showing they're pretty even in terms of mortality. And it can go from there we can even if someone can't take blood thinners because of bleeding peptic ulcers is actually a device that can be put in the heart try to block with a blood clots form. It's called a watchman device, or the left atrial appendage can be removed. It's called my father in law had that because he had cardiac surgery for other reasons why as a surgeon to remove the left atrial appendage to reduce his risk of stroke. So it's been said that if a doctor knows all the different permutations of afib, and the family members do, you know a lot of medicine?
Dr. Ardis 44:01
Yeah, that's awesome. Well, thank you for that review. I just wanted to make sure that visually, we can explain and show the audience's what AFib is good. What that represents this little video was, alright, so this is cardiac arrhythmias is a published paper on the NHS website right now, cardiac arrhythmias in post COVID-19 syndrome. This is one of those long Haller COVID symptoms are publishing. And AFib they mentioned is one of the most common cardiovascular disorders and shares similar comorbidities with patients suffering from post COVID syndrome. Now, I put this in here because this is a put atrial fibrillation and magnesium. Why? Because they actually publish that magnesium. I'll show the actual study here in just a minute. I'm not gonna actually go through this, this is directly off of the WebMD though, just for time, you've done a great job of explaining all of these symptoms, what people are gonna experience, but I wanted to put this in here and I have the links in here too for the audience's. This is an explanation of atrial fibrillation and blood clots and the correlations of both. And I thought this was important to set the stage for our discussion at the end of this conversation about what bromelain can offer to patients with cardiovascular risk of afib. Or having afib. It all so mentions the definition of what AFib is how blood clots can be impacted in in afib. In the strokes, you'll see those highlighted three paragraphs in a row in this paper symptoms. You mentioned these already, we went through those chest pains, dizziness, shortness of breath, heart palpitations, sweating weakness. And they get into what are some of the symptoms of a stroke that you could have as a result of blood clots, which could be correlated in the situation of an afib, suffering patient. And most people are familiar with these. So now, I want to get into the diet, though, because this I think, is very important. Atrial Fibrillation in the diet, this was actually published. I don't have the data here right now. But this is primary prevention of cardiovascular disease with a Mediterranean diet supplemented with extra virgin olive oil or nuts. And their conclusion was in this study involving persons at high cardiovascular risk, the incidence of major cardiovascular events was lowered among those assigned to a Mediterranean diet supplemented with extra virgin olive oil, or nuts, then those that were assigned to a reduced fat diet. So these are things that people could consider to use. And then I wanted to show this here, in here, this is actually in the Journal of a arrhythmias. Have you ever published a paper in Journal of a red muse? No, I haven't. So in here in the discussion, it's published that atrial fibrillation is the most common arrhythmia, and given its significant burden of board more morbidity and mortality, it's a major global public health problem. And in light of these findings, they say dietary modifications are of paramount importance. plant based diets they referenced may reduce the likelihood of many traditional atrial fibrillation risk factors that include hypertension, coronary artery disease, obesity and diabetes. And I left the link down there for individuals if they would like to read more about this plant based diet. And then what they talked about is they emphasize and plant based diets eating more whole grains, legumes, vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds, while excluding most of all animal products. And these are just some very basic things people could consider if they are struggling with afib, or any symptoms like that if they want to see if they can improve it at home through their diet. Then they also wrote here that the high magnesium content of a whole food plant based diet is also noteworthy because low serum magnesium is moderately associated with the development of atrial fibrillation in individuals.
Dr. Peter McCollough 47:19
Can we just talk about magnesium just for a second, because it is one thing that people can do at home. And that is use supplemental magnesium is very important. Magnesium is an essential electrolyte, and it is in our various foods, but most of our magnesium we rely on from the water supply. So let me tell you what's happened with the water supply over the years, it's become progressively more filtered. Even our drinking water, some places like Texas, the water table actually has a low magnesium content. And then on top of that people are drinking. Yes, they're drinking bottled water, or water or the frigerator that's filtered. So they're getting virtually no magnesium. So one of the first things I do in all my atrial fibrillation patients and those with other heart arrhythmias is I recommend magnesium supplements. And one of the things I asked them is, I asked them if they have any muscle cramps at night, because that can be a telltale sign so that there's so restlessness at night. And muscle cramps at night can be a sign of low magnesium, and then I submit magnesium. And in fact, you probably wonder, do I choose Ardiss brand magnesium. In fact, that could be a good choice for a lot of patients looking at magnesium, but we want to make sure we prescribe key lated magnesium. Magnesium comes in two forms magnesium oxide, which is bound that actually doesn't get absorbed actually causes diarrhea, then there's key lated magnesium, and there's three different types of key lights available, but they allow magnesium to disassociate and then be absorbed in the GI tract.
Dr. Ardis 48:52
Yeah, one of the recommendations here for magnesium is real general try magnesium, magnesium orotate, magnesium three and eight magnesium citrate use those. But if you have muscle cramps, this is a huge indicator that you're magnesium deficient. And I would tell people, you should supplement magnesium at a minimum 500 milligrams is what I've always said. Do that and do it for two weeks and see if you if you struggle with leg cramps, involuntarily. If you see improvements, you are absorbing that magnesium. That's a real simple test. And if you're constipated, and you see improvements in your bowels, having bowel movements everyday versus being constipated, you know, your body's absorbing the magnesium and you're actually benefiting from it. It's how many times have you heard people ask you I tell you what version of magnesium should I get Dr. Peter McCullough,
Dr. Peter McCollough 49:35
Dr. Ardiss is amazing. Everything he said was exactly right. In general, the range I give is between 408 100 milligrams at night. Now for the heart. There is a bit of a preference here we'd like magnesium Malley eight so myocardium maleate starts with an M, but there are actually many there's actually magnesium formulations that have some glycinate they have some they have you know array of different key lights. But one of the most important things you just said is give it a try. Because it's based with in the setting of normal renal function and no other problems is it's perfectly fine to do so. And it has medicinal properties. So a lot of people don't know this, you know, just as a parenthetical comment. Do you know women who develop preeclampsia, which has high blood pressure and problems with protein in the urine in pregnancy, you don't want to treatments is magnesium, we actually give intravenous magnesium, and I love them.
Dr. Ardis 50:31
Now one of the last things before we wrap this up, and we will make sure this entire presentation is actually given to our audiences with the video. But you talked about this actually, in our atrial fibrillation discussion was a Australian study and linking alcohol consumption to afib.
Dr. Peter McCollough 50:47
Yes, I know this comes to a great disappointment to Dr. Ardiss and his Viking background, but actually to stop drinking alcohol. This is the Melbourne paper said Listen, guys lay it off. They randomized people to stop drinking, to continue to drink as you are blaming these Australians in Melbourne, I've been down there these guys are drinking stirs. They're, yeah, they're drinkers. But listen, if he stopped drinking, the burden of atrial fibrillation reduces dramatically. So I try to get people to do that. In fact, I have a patient who's a former pro football player. And he I say, Listen, can you stop drinking alcohol he did. The AFib went away. He's fine. He calls me on New Year's Eve, he goes Doc, I had one drink. And the AFib is back as like it was that sensitive?
Dr. Ardis 51:32
Well, I want to share something here real quick in this paper, because I was shocked by this section will focus on this. They actually asked these people, they had a control group and a non control group, right. So they had the control group was we're gonna have you limit your alcohol intake to such and such amount. But what I found interesting was it didn't ask them to stop all alcohol, they just asked the control group to reduce it, which I found interesting what would have happened if they actually told them not to take it.
Dr. Peter McCollough 51:55
There's a small group in there that actually stopped completely and most people just reduced. So right stopping can have a big effect. And you know, another there's a great book, by the way to recommend it's called the 28 day alcohol challenge, refer book, big drinkers in the UK, they, they categorize all the benefits of stop drinking. And you know, one of the biggest benefits that you have when you stop doing what you have to get to 28 days is sleep cycles are restored. And for the first time people get a good night's sleep. And let me tell you a restless sleep and actually a problem called sleep apnea which difficult breathing, that's also something that powers on the risk for afib. So getting better sleep, losing weight, reducing the burden of AFib lots of reasons to think to go without alcohol,
Dr. Ardis 52:41
amen to that. It's one of the things we're going to be harping on here. Just simple ways to improve your health overall. Alright, then we're gonna wrap this up because you've got another interview, you're gonna get to help save the world with the rest of us. Alright, so this is the paper out of the Journal of atrial fibrillation actually role of magnesium in the management of atrial fibrillation. Now, in this they actually did intravenous magnesium, but they talk about high content magnesium for reducing afib. Overall, our results seem to indicate magnesium has a role to play in the management of afib, which is great. Now, this is a title of atrial fibrillation and bromelain bromelain, a potential bioactive compound by the time this airs, you might even have your own bromelain product ready. So we're going to actually make sure it's included here so you guys can get it at home. All right. bromelain effectively performs fibroid analysis and restricts coagulation of blood. Oh my God, have we seen massive blood clotting occurring with COVID and COVID-19 vaccines? I can't see
Dr. Peter McCollough 53:33
another one. I'm telling you right now my clinic is loaded with vaccine blood clots
Dr. Ardis 53:37
gush exaggerates the transformation of plasminogen to plasma which in turn hinders the synthesis of fibrin this is all Doctor talk that only we probably understand, but that's okay. The concentration of fibrinogen in serum is also reduced by bromelain. That helps to reduce blood clotting cascades in the body. Also very important bromelain I did not know this actually, till this presentation. bromelain is anti bacterial and kills E. coli bacteria. Do you wonder why this is important Dr. Peter McCullough because they have found the spike protein genes of COVID. And in the plasmids in these COVID-19 shots. When E coli bacteria in the gut of COVID-19. Patients who get the shots. The actual E. coli bacteria replicates the spike protein in their bodies, and the plasmids conjugate are absorbed into the bacteria to release it. So now you can kill it off. We have bromelain in our product for the doctor or to show audiences it's called cardio flow, multiple products there that actually helped benefit reducing blood clotting cascades, improving hypertension and lowering blood pressure effects. But bromelain you'll see is the second ingredient in that product there.
Dr. Peter McCollough 54:39
How long have you had this product for?
Dr. Ardis 54:41
We've had it for two years, actually, when they first when you and I actually started doing presentations in Frisco, Texas, about the CDC reporting that teenagers were having the worst outcome with myocarditis is when I started formulating their pro Doctor Ardiss,
Dr. Peter McCollough 54:53
you got to follow them everybody. He's a man ahead of his time. Let me tell you a Brahmin derived From the stems of pineapples, in 2022, was an FDA approved drug, it became FDA approved in what form in a concentrated ointment. So brambling is a medicine is used in deep tissue wounds, because it has antimicrobial properties that you pointed out. It helps digest that, that the Ashara, the big scab, their forms and these deep wounds. So Brahma lane is a medicine. It's part of what's called triple based detox. I've recently published this three things that we believe are best used in combination, you could use kind of any single one but in combination leverages the treatment effect is bromelain 500 milligrams a day, and we're well below the safety risk levels of bromelain natto kinase 2000 units twice a day and way below the safety concern. And then curcumin, curcumin derived from Tumeric 500 milligrams twice a day, these are modestly dose you can take them together. It is a blood thinning regimen. So it does lean the body towards blood thinning as opposed to coagulation. But importantly, natto kinase proven to degrade the spike protein the human body can't do this and help the anti blood clotting. bromelain also proven to break down the spike protein in a different way. And it's anti blood clotting and Alesci. Curcumin, where we have randomized clinical trials in humans, is anti inflammatory reduces some of the spike protein inflammation. I can tell you, we know we're on the right track. Our peer reviewed publication is getting a massive number of downloads. But you know how we really no it works. The censors came out in social media and they're slamming us and trying to censor and block any of our information on Triple base detox. That's exactly the same thing that happened. hydroxychloroquine ivermectin predestinate culture seen any of the strategies that actually worked in COVID. The social media through the biopharmaceutical complex works to suppress any hope of treatment in order to railroad mass vaccination on the population. I'm Dr. Peter McCullough has been great to be on the Ardis show.
Dr. Ardis 57:03
Thanks for helping wrap this up. Because it's time to end the program today. But thank you so much. Please tell the audiences where they can find your book.
Dr. Peter McCollough 57:10
Go to www.couragetofacecovid.com
Dr. Ardis 57:14
Oh, also, where can they find you in practice? I'm sure you're not loaded with patients.
Dr. Peter McCollough 57:17
I'm in McKinney, Texas, the bustling metropolis in McKinney, Texas my offices there. I see as many patients as I can I do the best I possibly can. I'm in practice, I see patients face to face, as well as I'm a frequent contributor on most of the major news stations and doing the best to bring America and the world the truth working with Dr. Ardiss and so many heroes. This has been a trying time for our country, but I do believe that good will prevail over evil.
Dr. Ardis 57:45
All right, so last minute, Dr. Peter McCullough, did you know that the FDA just approved remdesivir for COVID-19 patients that appear in the hospitals already having acute and chronic renal failure? And what do you think about that as a published nephrologist?
Dr. Peter McCollough 58:00
It's I'm a cardiologist, but I published a lot in nephrology, It's deplorable that the FDA did this. The product was not even adequately tested in patients with kidney disease. It causes acute kidney injury, which leads to death. And it shows you how corrupt this biopharmaceutical complex is. The reason why I was approved is not because it's safe or works and patient with kidney disease. Because Gilead and the Health and Human Services Department have a sweetheart deal to railroad this drug on the population. I tell each and every patient they get admitted to the hospital please decline remdesivir Even the WHO says not to use it?
Dr. Ardis 58:37
Well, if I need a cardiologist, I know where I'm going. And you should do so flood his office in McKinney for as much as he's available outside of all of his presentations, interviews and traveling. But God bless you and thank you for standing down with me for the last four years trying to defend humanity. All right. I'm Dr. Ardis. We'll see you next time.
