How I Avoided the Death Rattle – Part 3

None of my current 6 Ontario doctors have ever answered a single email from me. I completely understand why it is standard medical practice. However I have found medical physician researchers publish their emails as they need to be open to collaboration with other researcher. But they are not normally available for medical diagnosis and treatment. I sent him an email using every ploy I could to increase the chances of a response. I gambled that he was Ukrainian so I signed it by my middle name “Yaroslaw” Dr Diakiw, York University ( retired) and a link to “Growing up Ukrainan in Toronto” Toronto Star. I explained I had read every one of his recent articles I could find and that I wondered if I was a good candidate for trimedizine. I listed all my relevant diseases and specific heart data such as LVEF as well as a list of all my medications. He responded quickly


With decreased kidney function you should be careful taking trimetazidine. Of course, this same caution applies to a number of the other drugs you are taking. Based on your condition I would suggest that trimetazidine would be a good choice. Your conditions are consistent with an impaired glucose oxidation in the heart and an excessive reliance on fatty acid oxidation. Trimetazidine would help reverse this metabolic change. Your dosing strategy does look logical. I am including a paper on some of the energy metabolic changes that occur in the failing heart.

Best regards!

The drug is not available anywhere in North America and none of my doctors were willing to prescribe an illegal drug. I found a Vasperal factory in Turkey so I used an online blank prescription form and prescribed it, signed Dr Jerry Diakiw. After paying for it with a SWIFT payment at my bank a 6 month supply arrived quickly.

In one of dozens of studies it stated “The available data suggest that therapy combining trimetazidine and hemodynamic drugs is effective in patients with chronic heart failure, leading to additional benefits such as improvement in left ventricular function, exercise tolerance and quality of life.( https://moh-it.pure.elsevier.com/en/publications/the-clinical-benefits-provided-by-trimetazidine-vastarel-mr-in-le)

4. Acety L-Carnitine (L- Carnitine )

Another supplement Dr Strum Recommended for me for my diabetes and heart issues was L-Carnitine. He takes 3 grams in liguid form daily as I do now. Some studies demonstrate a potential for reducing blood pressure and the inflammatory process associated with heart disease.

In one study, 2 grams of acetyl-L-carnitine per day resulted in an almost 10-point drop in systolic blood pressure. L-carnitine is also linked to improvements in patients with severe heart disorders, such as coronary heart disease and chronic heart failure. One 12-month study observed a reduction in heart failure and deaths among participants who took L-carnitine supplements.

Of note: L-Carnitine is well known as a weigh loss supplement and it is also claimed to have neuro-degenerative benefits. I take 3grams liquid L-Carnitine every day on an empty stomach.

5. COQ10

While widely regarded as a beneficial supplement none of my doctors have ever recommended it, except for Dr Strum. It is particularly recommended for those taking statins as statins deplete Coq10. There is a vast literature on its health benefits. It has studies showing benefit to the heart, diabetes, cancer skin condition and many others. I took the plasma Coq10 test at Dynacare Lab ($110.) and I am now in the optimum zone.


I am certain this unconventional battery of drugs/supplements, have extended my life. None of any one of these have been suggested or prescribed by any of my 6 specialists . Yet I highly regard each and every one of them. It’s just impossible with the proliferation of medical research for any of them to keep up the constant flood of research. I have stopped taking my blood pressure medication I was taking for decades. This battery of drugs has now resulted in my blood pressure in the optimum range (under 120/70). My blood sugar level has dropped significantly and I have reduced my insulin shots for 20 units per day to 8. I am in the target zone over 90% of the time. (the target is over 70%. All my 3 omega3 readings are in the sweet spot, as is my CoQ10 blood plasma readings. Since I started taking L-Arginine I have lost weight without effort. I’m in good spirits and feel I have a high quality of life despite my continued breathlessness on effort. But I now feel I can live forever. I have avoided the predicted ‘death rattle’. . . . For now!

Thank you for taking the time to relate your research on particular supplements. My own experience is similar. In 1999 I was sick with something all the time, from ear or sinus infections to other things. I started taking various supplements and within 6 months I was symptom free. So, again thanks for telling us about your journey
