I follow you everywhere.
Thank you for helping so many people.
Trying to get my daughter to follow you.
Bless you keep doing what you do.
So sorry to hear of the passing of Dr Sinatra.
For the Late Dr. Stephen Sinatra (A Cardiologists Take on Faith and the Heart)
Written by Erin Porter
I am sad to announce after a very brief illness, the unexpected death of renowned cardiologist Dr. Stephen Sinatra. As a tribute to him, I would like to share our interview together from last year. After he agreed to a Q&A for my book (Eat Pray Get Well) we quickly became friends and he also became my mentor.
Dr. Sinatra is also an author of the book “Health Revelations from Heaven and Earth.” This is a book he co-wrote with Tommy Rosa. A Bronx-born plumber who died in a hit-and-run incident and believed he went to heaven and met Jesus. While visiting heaven, certain truths about health and life were taught to Tommy by his “teacher”.
I want to note that the way in which these two authors lives collide is in itself a divine story which is told in their book. Dr. Sinatra realized that the revelations of healing that Tommy had received in Heaven aligned with the groundbreaking results he was seeing in his own practice and scientific research.
An Excerpt From My Interview with Dr. Sinatra
Erin – Steve, you may know that Doug Kaufmann has a theory about statin drugs. They were initially created to be an antifungal and then oops, we found out they also lower cholesterol! So could it be that fungus and yeast are sometimes the culprit in high cholesterol?
Dr. Sinatra: There are those theories out there and an antifungal diet is like an anti-sugar diet, he is probably very correct!
Erin: Can you explain what lipoprotein (a), also referred to as LP little a, is and why is it so important that it is monitored? Here in America do doctors routinely monitor this cholesterol particle?
The Real Truth About Cholesterol
Dr. Sinatra: This is the real truth about cholesterol. This is a very small cholesterol particle that has what we call a disulfide bridge, it is very inflammatory, Erin, it’s not only inflammatory, but it causes blood clotting at the same time, so now if you have high LP(a) you now have a substance that not only causes clotting and thickening of the blood, like red ketchup blood, but it’s also inflammation enhancing as well which is the sine qua non of coronary heart disease. LP(a) is the real cholesterol story. The problem is statins can make it worse. Statins really don’t alter it, the only things that work for LP(a) are things like niacin.
There’s a substance from Canada called boluoke. It’s what we call lumbrokinase. It’s almost like a snake venom, it’s a substance that helps dissolve clots. I really like boluoke and it’s one of my remedies for high LP(a). It’s good for people who can’t tolerate niacin. LP(a) is something the public really needs to know about. The whole aspect of medicine is changing before our eyes. The whole aspect of medicine will rely on genetics, where mapping out genomes of people so we can find out their weaknesses, and now the new medicine going forward will be shoring up the defenses on weak genes and trying to magnify our stronger genes, giving us greater resistance to illness and disease.
Erin – Preventative instead of waiting until the disease hits us.
Dr. Sinatra: Yes, it will be more preventative I can tell you that. This is why I am such a big believer in olive oil. What olive oil does is it changes pro-inflammatory genes back to a non-inflammatory state. That’s why you see more one-hundred-year-old people in the Mediterranean Basin and they all have one thing in common, they use olive oil as a main source of fat. I really think it’s the secret sauce of the Mediterranean diet. If you go on my site, HeartMDInstitute.com, I have a lot of information on olive oil. It has to be extra virgin olive oil though, the problem now is a lot of countries are cutting their olive oil with canola oil which is as you know pro-inflammatory.
Erin: Yes, and they are still allowed to claim it as 100% olive oil which seems very wrong. I want to mention you also have your own brand of oil which can be found at Vervana, I have tried it, it’s fantastic!
Dr. Sinatra: Yes, if it’s 75% or more, they can keep canola off the label. It’s really horrible. We are certified by California Olive Oil Council (COOC) and they will only certify 100% extra virgin olive oil.
What Dr. Sinatra Says About Grounding And The Heart
Erin: Let’s talk about the fascinating topic of grounding. I learned everything I know on this topic from you and now I make sure to walk barefoot on the beach or grass several times a week. Can you tell us how grounding works?
Dr. Sinatra: When I was lecturing across the country, two of the greatest discoveries in my 50 years of medicine have been CoQ10 and grounding. They are related because they are both electron donors and they both drive ATP (the energy of life) in a preferential direction. CoQ10 and grounding have a special connection so to speak. The way grounding works is you are taking in mother earth energy. Now what is the mother earth energy? We call it the Schumann effect, and the Schumann effect is called 7.83 hertz. It’s the humming of the earth, it actually has the same frequency as Om in yoga. When yogis would say ‘Ommmm’ they were really chanting the frequency of 7.83. The humming of the earth effect is caused by lightning strikes around the equator. We live in Tampa, and the first thing I do after a lightning storm, Erin, is I go out in the grass and walk in the grass or the sand. If you have ever smelled the ozone in the air after a storm, it’s pretty cool because that means there is a lot of energy in the air. Whenever there is a lightning storm, once it’s over, I just soak in those electrons and that’s the reason I moved to the beach!
Erin: Same here, we bought a beach house because I knew of the healing powers of grounding and the microbes in the sand and the water.
Dr. Sinatra: Yes, I did so much research on grounding and I realized grounding not only drives ATP in a preferential direction but it also attenuates the overactive sympathetic nervous system. When you ground your feet to mother earth and soak in the Schumann effect, the 7.83 hertz, you are literally taking in this energy and not only are you attenuating the overactive nervous system, you are balancing the parasympathetic with the sympathetic. You are also thinning the blood at the same time. Now this is really important because I believe with all the electromagnetics in the environment, WiFi, 5G, cordless phones, cellular phones, computers, baby monitors, the list goes on and on, grounding becomes even more important. What 5G frequency electromagnetics does is it takes red blood cells and makes it the consistency of red ketchup. When we ground to mother earth and take in the Schumann effect what we are doing is we are taking in these electrons which not only balance the overactive autonomic nervous system, but we are also thinning the blood at the same time.
When I did this research I really thought that I would get this in major journals of cardiology but they all turned it down, they thought it was hocus pocus. I was on the phone with this incredible researcher from Sweden, his name is Olle Johansson. He is really a prolific guy. He is anti-cellular phone, etc., but he laughingly told me, “Your group will be dead and buried and you’ll probably get the Nobel Prize for this, but it’s not going to happen in your lifetime.” I thought that was funny.
Erin: Funny and frustrating at the same time I bet. That is great information on grounding!
Electrohypersensitivity And EMF’s
Dr. Sinatra: My son worked on Wall Street and he became ill. He had electrohypersensitivity syndrome which happens to about 3% of Americans. A lot of people can’t function from EMF’s. He actually now lives on a little island off the coast of Greece because there are no cell phone towers. There is no 5G, they have 3G at the most.
Erin: Is it in a blue zone?
Dr. Sinatra: Yes, he’s in a blue zone! He talks about blue zones, his name is Stephen Sinatra (same as mine) and he has a website called Ageless.com. Stephen does podcasts on earthing and grounding. He believes it literally saved his life.
Erin: It probably did. I can only imagine what we are going to find out about these cell phones and 5G in 20 years! But for right now it’s hard to convince anybody because we think we need them and can’t live without them. My son carries his phone in his pocket all day and I even caught him sleeping with his phone under his pillow. I told him that can’t ever happen again!
Dr. Sinatra: Have him listen to my interview. It’s causing male and female sterility, and tell your son this, sperm production goes down 400% within two hours with a cellphone in the front pocket. There is a lot of data on that. Female sterility used to be more common than male sterility, now it’s male infertility that has surpassed female sterility. But underneath the pillow, oh my God, it’s going into his brain. There’s more brain tumors right now in younger adults, it’s very scary.
Erin: I want to go back to grounding just for a minute. Do you find that if you want to get close to God, for example if I feel I can’t ‘get through’ and I am looking for answers from Him, there is something about taking a walk on the beach barefoot. It’s almost as if that’s where I find Him, where I can get connected, and I don’t know if grounding has anything to do with it or not? Or maybe it’s just giving yourself the quiet time to get closer, but I just feel closer to Him that way.
Dr. Sinatra: I’ll put it this way, whenever you ground and you are reconnecting your autonomic nervous system, you have a better chance at connecting to higher spiritual power. The sympathetic nervous system is neutralized. The sympathetic nervous system keeps you away from spirituality, so when you balance the overactive sympathetic nervous system you have more potential to develop your spiritual side.
Is Eating Organic Important?
Erin: How important is eating organic food and using supplements to keep our heart healthy, and tell us about the ‘awesome foursome.’
Dr. Sinatra: Eating organic is really important, you know that as much as I do. Let’s talk about the awesome foursome (CoQ10, L-carnitine, D-ribose, and magnesium).I learned about CoQ10 40 years ago and I learned about magnesium a little earlier than that because I used to use it in intensive care units for arrhythmias. I learned about l-carnitine 30 years ago and then ribose pulled it all together.
I’ll never forget, I was sitting in a meeting in 2004, and one of my colleagues, a board certified cardiologist was talking about D-ribose and I had this immediate ‘Aha’ moment because he provided me with the missing link I’d been looking for, for years! Because D-Ribose, in combination with CoQ10, L-Carnitine and magnesium drives your chi energy in a preferential direction. Somebody is going to discover this, it’s not going to be me but I think what happens here is that when you give these ATP supporting nutrients it’s connecting with either our exosomes or our chemical messages and what it’s doing is it’s turning on our intrinsic stem cells and when you turn on your intrinsic stem cells – let’s say you have a damaged heart from a massive heart attack 20 years ago, and you turn on your intrinsic stem cells so now you can rebuild or rejuvenate. The best word is ‘renew’ cellular tissue in your heart and completely regenerate your heart. I know that sounds crazy but I’ve seen it over and over again. In fact, I’ve treated so many cases of congenital heart disease where parents were crying in my office because I couldn’t find a heart transplant for their-nine year-old son who was in heart failure. I’d put them on my metabolic heart program, the awesome foursome, and now these kids are living into their 30’s and beyond. By the time hearts were available for some of these patients, they were having such a great quality of life on the awesome foursome that they refused the heart transplant.
Dr. Sinatra knew that you could not separate the health of your body and heart from your relationship with yourself, God, and others. Rest In Peace Dr. Sinatra. We thank you for sharing your research and knowledge. You have left this world a better place. Dr. Stephen Sinatra cause of death was a brief battle with pancreatic cancer.
My book Eat Pray Get Well – A Journey from Chronic Illness & Brokenness to Wholeness & Healing is now also available on Kindle.
Love your life experiences I saw you on Doug Kauffman show.
Barbara! Thank you so much for this message!!! I needed to hear it today 🙂 Erin
Thank you Erin for sharing Dr. Sinatra’s answers to the questions which you asked him in your interview with him. I didn’t even know that Dr. Sinatra had passed away, and I’m as much disappointed & surprised as I am sorry to hear that he is no longer with us. This handsome man looked like the picture of health to me. He brought hope to people like me who have heart disease. It really stinks that we lost Dr. Sinatra to the second leading disease (cancer) after the number one leading disease (heart disease) which are both responsible for causing ao many premature deaths here in the U.S. As the Holy Bible warns, our lives are like vapors, here one moment & gone the next. I hope that Dr. Sinatra was ready for his appointment to come before God. I appreciate you sharing Dr. Sinatra’s responses to your questions because it has reminded me of some important nutrients which I can use to combat my arrhythmia along with some new health methods (grounding) to consider utlizing in the ongoing battles against aging, disease & death. I wish you continued good health and an extraordinarily long life.
Hello Peter, I was so sad as well. He was so full of life and joy and I think this diagnosis was fast and a big surprise to him and the rest of us. I had arrythmias for decades (still do occasionally) when my body is taxed but I do the awesome foursome and believe it has helped and just getting healthy in general also helped. THank you for the reading the interview I had with him and I’m so glad you enjoye dit. Wishing you the best of health! Erin
Wow wow wow. I moved to NC 4 years ago and have been sick for 3.5 of this years. I was born with a heart murmur and had a mitral valve prolapse until it healed on its own in 2020. I was 71 even I was told no more mitral valve prolapse. I thought my cardiologist was wrong so I flew from North Carolina to Texas to see my sister and brought all the diagnostics with me and they confirmed I don’t have this condition anymore. Upon arriving home I got Covid for the second time and it was worse than the first time and it has been what is keeping me down over the last three years… so I thought I was a long hauler. Now I have a pituitary adenoma. I do research on Health especially mine now. I was writing a book and now that I was retired I thought I could get it together. But I was more than just retired. I was tired all the time and I’m tired of being tired. Then the diagnosis cameFor a pituitary adenoma this past October. OK it causes many of the same symptoms that Covid does and there is a connection between the two. My problem is an over abundance of cortisol from living in fear since I moved here. A family member lived here and my sister was going to move here as well but the family member moved away after two years and my sister never made it here to live here.The other frustrations or laborers are hard to come by in a very little quality and exorbitantly expensive. Frustration is underneath a lot of my symptoms. As a result I was pumping out too much cortisol. Very quickly I gained 45 pounds because that’s with cortisol does when it’s out of control. It puts on the fat and keeps the fat on. I believe that taking coenzyme Q 10 and the D ribose of Dr. Sinatra’s as were cleared up my heart. However now there is a strong connection from the heart to the pituitary adenoma. Plus my heart, left Descending artery has a blockage. Since I retired I am always on my cell phone doing research. I have a hotspot on my phone so I can turn on my computer for Internet service. I do believe my emotions have caused both these conditions with the help of cell phone radiation exposure. The first sign of my conditions was peripheral neuropathy and vertigo. And then I got these tumors in my hands. I am a massage therapist and I never had a problem with my hands until I stopped massaging after I moved to North Carolina. I believe it was because I had my phone in my hand all the time. I didn’t believe in cable so I don’t know I have computers hooked to routers etc. etc. I am afraid of 5G because I read too many bad things about it. My phone is 4G. I always felt my best while I was in Jamaica West Indies. I walked on the edge of the ocean every day. I always felt healthy there. I had a consult for a catheterization a couple of weeks ago and I told him I just want them to look and see where the blockages and I don’t want any procedures yet. They refused to do the catheterization because of my attitude. I told him I would think about it and they scheduled me for November 3.After that appointment I went to my endocrinologist to see the results of my MRI of my head where they found the pituitary adenoma. I know that I like condition and the I don’t know my in my brain are related. When I asked the question macaws is these pituitary adenoma‘s, the answer was “they don’t know “. So I did my own research and now that I know what’s going on I also know what I have to take to inhibit the overabundance of cortisol which is there because of constant fear and worry. In other words, emotions drive the body. I have been a student of energy medicine since 2010 and got involved heavily with more classes while I was sick with Covid and could not do anything but sit and listen because I had no energy and I was very depressed from all this worry and fear. I’m going to go back on my D ribose and the other three products to get my heart back in shape and I will be taking supplements of GABA and other to get my health back in my brain. I kept saying I can’t shut my brain off not realizing that I was lacking GABA which is an inhibitor of cortisol production. I hope you are connecting the dots. I will tell you this, Emotions are held in our organs. The emotion held in the pancreas is chronic worry. Fear is held in the kidneys.
Anger is held in the liver and frustration is held in the spleen and the heart. People actually do die of broken hearts because of love lost. We must listen to our emotions and we must change them to the opposites emotion. We have to learn to trust which is the opposite of worrying.I will be spending months in Jamaica this year to make up for the loss of time over the last four years of living here in North Carolina. I do have a grounding pillowcase and sheets but I never really felt different or better but after reading your article I’m certainly going to be plugging everything back in to my bed!!!! I will probably go for another round of diagnostics next spring when I return. I’m sure all that I had negative in my body will have turned to the other side of the coin and in a positive direction. My sister sent me this article. I am so fortunate that we have this kind of Long distance communication. I do keep an anti-radiation shield on the back of my phone inside a cover. I also put the phone in a copper lines compartment so the radiation doesn’t hit me while I’m sleeping. I don’t have it in my bed but it is nearby.I will now be following you on your website, eat pray get well.com. Thank you for this interview. It’s exactly what I needed to hear. PS. I think we can intervene when it comes to genetics. If you listen to the “biology of belief”, you will see that genetics are actually a very small percentage of our illnesses. Propensity towards is Our End Results. Unbeknownst to most of us, we are the creators of our own destiny as we live here on this earth. I will take the awesome foursome I will let you know how I do. If I don’t do the catheterization and possibly get a stent or surgery while they are looking where my blockage is and how much of s blockage I have, my endocrinologist cannot schedule pituitary surgery for me. No surgeries for me thank you. I believe the right emotions and the right food together with a grounding will turn my life around. I will die as God planned. Thank you again for sharing this interview. I really needed it
Thanks so much for writing in! You have been sick since your move, do you believe it’s possibly mold related? I am SO happy to hear the mitral valve prolapse is gone, wow, the body is amazing isn’t it? I also take the awesome foursome. Dr. Sinatra completley believed in it’s healing power on the heart. I love what you said about emotions, and I think we don’t give them enough credit for helping us stay sick. I am wishing you all the best in your recovery.
