Dr Siva Arunasalam, M.D. PhD.
1. High Risk Heart Disease Study - High Desert Heart Institute
2. Angelo Cici - Study Participant - Serious Heart Disease Reversed
Dr. Siva Arunasalam is the Director and Founder of The High Desert Heart Institute.
He came to the U.S in 1977 as an undergraduate of medicine, to the University of Nebraska.
He did his MD and PHD in both John Hopkins and Emery Universities in Atlanta and completed his
residency and fellowship in the prestigious Cedars-Sinai hospital in UCLA. He is board certified
in Internal Medicine, Cardiology and Interventional Cardiology. In his interview with John Hewlett,
he gives us an in-depth look into his philosophy for cardiovascular care and his findings with the use of L-Arginine in the care of his patients.
Dr. Siva chose 35 of his high-risk patients for the clinical trial,
one was later offered a heart transplant and then another opted out of the study leaving 33 patients.
All of these patients had reached the position where in the words of Dr. Siva - "Everything medically and pharmacologically
that could be done for them had already been done".
Angelo's Story - One such story is that of a man who had gone home to die. Angelo Cici was a major player in corporate America;
he had been the senior litigator for Litton Industries for many years. In 2002 he had a pacemaker fitted and continued to work
full time as a realtor, despite having officially retired. In 2009, his pacemaker failed and he suffered congestive heart failure,
renal failure and pulmonary hypertension. He survived the initial organ failure, but endured numerous trips to the Emergency Ward.
He lost all strength, could not walk 6 meters / 20ft at one time, couldn't even open a bottle of water and he needed oxygen 24 hours a day - 7 days a week just to survive. He felt
totally defeated, discharged himself from hospital and went home to die.
Angelo had an appointment at the High Desert Heart Institute, during which Dr. Siva suggested he take part in the upcoming clinical trial.
Angelo agreed and proceeded to take therapeutic doses of Arginine and Citrulline along with his existing medications. After 30 days,
he stopped making trips to Emergency Ward. After 90 days on the trial, his life changed dramatically. He no longer needed oxygen.
He went from renal failure and facing dialysis to having NORMAL kidney function.
He reports having all of his strength and stamina back to that of 40 years old - he is now 72.
Angelo says he "wanted to open death's door". Now he is living life to the full.
