My heart's health A new revolutionary view
Very occasionally, there are individuals who are clearly many years ahead of their time in both thought and practice. One such person is undoubtedly Dr. Demetrio Sodi Pallares. Present day cardiology is obsessed with the technological treatment of the end-stage of heart disease. The literature is overwhelmingly directed to techniques such as coronary artery by-pass surgery, percutaneous coronary angioplasty, and, indeed, cardiac transplantation. In this dehumanized desert of technological overemphasis the work of Dr. Sodi Pallares comes as a welcome and refreshing oasis. Dr. Sodi Pallares elucidates and treats the very basis of heart disease, and, as such, is logical, physiologic, beneficial and preventative. The approach is directed to the diseased cell itself; and in dealing with this fundamental aspect, the very causes of disease are treated and corrected to the benefit of the heart as a whole. The approach may not be fully appreciated in the present-day technological milieu, but will most certainly make its mark in the years to come. The concepts of Dr. Sodi, are not only intensely scientific, but judiciously spiced with philosophy, enthusiasm, utter sincerity and honesty.
