What is Plaquex®?

Plaquex is a compounded medicine that contains polyunsaturated phosphatidylcholine (PC). PC makes up all the cell membranes in the body as well as the transport vehicles 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, neurotransmitters and many more. 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, high blood sugar as well as high levels of stress hormones such as cortisol and adrenalin.

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 making up all the cell membranes, PC also has anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties. Lowering chronic inflammation allows the body’s natural healing and repair processes to take place and is the first step in recovering from many chronic health conditions.

Effects of Plaquex

Plaquex therapy restores cell membrane integrity and cell membrane function which normalizes the cell metabolism. This in turn helps to clear out plaque deposits and improve the function of all organs, including liver and kidneys. It also improves the blood flow properties so blood can flow more easily without the use of blood thinners. It also has an effect on important enzymes involved with blood lipids. It thereby reduces LDL cholesterol and triglycerides and increases HDL cholesterol.

Theraputic 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. It can also improves skin texture and helps with a more youthful appearance.

    What Does the Treatment Involve?

    Before the first Plaquex treatment is given, blood samples are taken for determination of important serum parameters of organ function, which will be monitored during the course of the Plaquex treatment.

    A check-up is usually done by the treating physician, who will discuss your present use of medications such as Beta-Blockers, Nitroglycerin and also supplements, diet and exercise with you.

    How is Plaquex Administered?

    It is administered intravenously over a period of 90 minutes. A minimum of 20-40 Plaquex infusions is suggested. In severe cases of heart disease (By- pass and Angioplasty candidates) up to 45 or more treatments with Plaquex may be required.

    Plaquex can be alternated with classical Chelation treatments.

    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 prophylactic measure. Should symptoms start returning you may require another small series.

    Could Plaquex Help Me?

    If you are interested in finding out whether Plaquex might benefit you, we encourage you to schedule an appointment to speak with one of our knowledgeable physicians who can discuss your symptoms, history and determine if this technique is suitable for you.

    About Dr. Minkoff

    Dr. David Minkoff graduated from the University of Wisconsin Medical School in 1974 and was elected to the “Phi Beta Kappa” of medical schools, the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha Honors Medical Fraternity for very high academic achievement. He then completed both a Pediatric Residency and a Fellowship in Infectious Disease at the University of California at San Diego. He worked at the University of California and Children’s Hospitals in San Diego as an attending physician in infectious disease while conducting original research on Ribaviron, a broad spectrum anti-viral agent to fight disease. He also co-directed a neo-natal intensive care unit and worked in emergency medicine. In 1992, Dr. Minkoff’s attended a lecture by Dr. Jeffrey Bland, widely considered the father of functional medicine, during which he had a eureka moment, and began pursuing the alternative health field with a vengeance, studying under the most accomplished thought leaders on natural & integrative healing. In 1997 Dr. Minkoff and his wife set up a small clinic to help friends with their medical problems. What began as an experiment blossomed into Lifeworks Wellness Center, one of the most successful clinics for complementary medicine in the United States.
