    I suffered a Cardiac infarction on June 1 /2017. Was fortunate enough to be in close proximity of a Cardiac Surgeon who inserted a stent. He also prescribed 6 drugs, Ticagelor, Metopolol, Pantoprozole, Ramipril, Rozuvastatin, Aspirin (the latter as Codral forte, HE WAS WARNED had caused a BIG BLEED that almost cost me my life in 1993 after it was prescribed for Migraines)
    He ignored the warning... the Aspirin he prescribed caused a repeat of 1993.
    I survived but since 5th June suffer low abdominal pain almost everyday and gout like symptoms, nausea and occasional vomiting despite dropping all but Ticagrelor from my Drug Regimen.
    My search of alternatives to ALL the Big Pharma drugs suggest that supplements like Serrapeptase, Nattokinase, Astaxanthin Turmeric, Olive Leaf Extract or Gaba may help.
    I have had stool and blood tests for parasites etc and been unable to find any GPs who know of or will suggest any alternatives and certainly not the supplements above.
    Do you have any ideas??
