CardioRetinometry Solves Many Deficiencies

Posted By Dr. Sydney J. Bush [paid advertisement], Monday, September 25, 2017


In 2002 Prof Steve Hickey declared with Dr Hilary Roberts in their book "Ridiculous Dietary Allowance" that...CardioRetinometry represents a new and quantifiable method for derivation of vitamin C requirements. The following papers reveal the evidence for the need of an urgent and total revision of vitamin C needs now exposing the origins of a vast variety of fatal diseases associated with different degrees of deficiency and never suspected of holding the key to almost all non-violent premature deaths.

The recent SUN paper produced in Spain shows over 50% of cardiovascular deaths to be so linked.

Published less than a month ago, Nutrients 2017, 9(9), 954; doi:10.3390/nu9090954  Article "Vitamin C Intake is Inversely Associated with Cardiovascular Mortality in a Cohort of Spanish Graduates:" The SUN Project [Nerea Martín-Calvo, Miguel Ángel Martínez-González] proves over 50 Direct correlation reduction of heart events with small supplements of vitamin C in 13,421 participants in their 40s.

This wealth of data supports Sydney Bush´s finding that over more than a decade in his contact lens clinic, dispensing 200 gram pots of sodium ascorbate powder, that there were no deaths at all from CHD and the only myocardial infarcts and deaths were amongst those who rejected the advice to supplement with it.

 The evidence for reduction of CHD by ascorbate is now overwhelming and the new science iof CardioRetinometry enables its precise derivation of individual biological need by direct quantification effects on the retinal vasculature.

 If vitamin C had been killing people like Vioxx, the debate would have long been over. It is now appropriate for me to inform everyone of the original statements made in the Hull University thesis on  CardioRetinometry that was published by Paul Francis BSc.

 He talks of a paradigm shift in medicine that is fully supported by the thesis of Dr. Sam Wallace DO, that I sent you yesterday that will be published in an `open access´ journal before the end of the month. I think you will agree that the language of both researchers leads to the conclusion that we are indeed observing a paradigm shift in health  care. It is worth mentioning, before I quote his words from his thesis, that Francis himself was astonished at the degree of atherogenesis caused by his stress with the task of researching CardioRetinometry, and the happy outcome when, under direction, he accepted the nutritional supplementation that he was able to record showing the recovery of his own arteries"

The quoted section below is precisely as he wrote it and members should now be in  no doubt whatever that with this supporting evidence, they are obliged to take note and offer the new prevention which represents the greatest advance in medicine as they suggest since Helmhotlz enabled fundus inspection and removes guesswork from treatment by observation of precisely measurable cardiovascular pathology.

"Accurate measurement of vessel structures in retinal images plays an important role in diagnosing cardiovascular diseases. (CVD). This paper presents a method for the direct quantification of vessel geometry and texture in retinal images associated with increased oral intake of vitamin C.

Using models of vessel intensity profile presented and applied across a series of time lapse images, results are presented for their variation.  The developed methods were used to analyse retinal vessel variation across images taken over a 6 month period of a healthy white male taking oral supplementation of vitamin C.

This study found that direct quantification of variation across images was achieved using the models of vessel intensity profile, and that variation across images was affected by machine accuracy, image capture and vessel segmentation techniques.More accurate quantification of the changes witnessed requires the enhancement of existing instrumentation and diagnostic techniques to facilitate the increase in accuracy in the measurement of arterial deposits via retinal image analysis.

A limitation however may be the natural resolution of the human eye which deteriorates with age. Automated analysis of sequential images is envisaged with the evolution of the system to produce graphed predictions of life expectancy corresponding with degrees of regression of atherosclerosis achieved coupled with rates of change, quantification, possibly using ocular coherence tomography in absolute terms of the volume of plaque removed, with brief periods of reversion to the earlier diet and supplementation (or the lack of it ) in order to assess rate of regression.

These elements factored in from data gathered during the phase of retolysis are expected with suitable refinement to produce three graphs

 (1)The previously expected ‘normal’ life expectancy at each age.

(2) A graph superimposed on the first, showing the actual gain of CV life expectancy achieved by arrestation of atherogenesis.

(3) A graph above the others predicting total life expectancy factoring in the rate of regression which is anticipated to increase with age.


METHOD. Sequential fundus imaging ideally not less than biannually; Manual scanning by rapid alternation of images that would otherwise superimpose, allowing quick judgment of increase or decrease of retinal and atherosclerosis, retinal and papillary perfusion changes, curvilinear, blood - flow and lumen changes.

RESULTS: Informal study of images captured in 1998 were noted in 1999 to have started showing consistent atherolysis claimed by patients to have resulted from either extra vitamin C, dietary or lifestyle improvements. A hundred claimed in writing that they attributed the improvements to one or the other, a high proportion insisting that their sodium L - ascorbate or vitamin C tablets had effected the transformations.

CONCLUSION: After 150 years,a new system of healthcare has been revealed which may finally bring to mankind the full benefits of Helmholtz’ 1851 invention of the ophthalmoscope.

A multitude of nutritional and medical challenges to the retinal vasculature might now be evaluated for improving health, e.g.individual assessment the ideal duration of treatment with statins, Because of the dramatic effects seen and the removal of guesswork from the controversial correlation of blood fats and cholesterol to actual atherogenesis, urgent evaluation of this discovery is recommended for the establishment of better healthcare and real cardiovascular life extension in what might be the first paradigm shift in medicine since Pasteur"
