This is a story how a super healthy physician was tortured to develop a heart attack and pushed back to the hospitals over and over. Still, she recovered herself with tools beyond the traditional approach and found that heart attack does not have to be the #1 cause of death for men and women. She shares her story to show that many survivors can learn to manage challenges to minimize stress like her instead of “Avoiding ALL Stress,” get well faster or stay well better, and save their freedom, dreams, and millions of healthcare costs.
Now I fully understand why heart attack is the #1 cause of death for men and women and cost millions dollars after I went through one myself — it is too hard and painful not to do what needed or kneel for life. Traditional management mainly provides tests and life support and, therefore, asks survivors to do the opposite– AVOID ALL STRESS.
The good news is that with more tools, many survivors can learn to do what needed to minimize stress, enhance healing, stay healthy faster and better, and save up to 90% of costs. You will understand why if you know my story.
How I Suffered from a Heart Attack
I had no risk facts and no family or personal history of heart attack and was super healthy before I had an auto-accident early last year. A man suddenly cut in front of me while I was driving on my right way. I did not go to the emergency room (ER) right way as I tried to take care myself for other urgent issues.
The man had a policy enough to repair my car and cover my initial injury and time losses. However, his insurance company, Mercury Insurance Company (Mercury), tricked me to take my car to its dealer to drive the repair cost over 100% while depreciating my car value about 30%. Then they claimed my car a total loss and ended my rental in 5 days instead of 25~30 days if they repaired my car. I asked Mercury to fix my car at the regular body shop that evaluated the car. However, Mercury refused.
The accident was not my fault. Instead of taking care of me, Mercury set me up, made me put down my urgent issues to find a new car in 5 days or re-register my car within 20 days. These made me incredibly angry, unable to sleep, sweat a lot… At one period, I could have chest pain if I thought about Mercury or talked to someone at Mercury. I had to go to ER for chest pain a few days later. Still, Mercury insisted on their doing.
I decided to pay for additional rental and repair my car to save time but only discovered more set up waiting for me– I ALSO had to pass brake tests, light tests, smog check, and go to DMV again and again in order to re-register my care. In the meantime, Mercury pressed me to sign away my personal damage and losses for a few hundred dollars, which was not enough to cover one ER visit!! These made me even angrier. Soon, I was admitted to the hospital for positive Troponin (heart attack diagnostic test). Hospital told me to avoid ALL stress but could not be specific.
I was afraid to talk to their claim adjuster after discharged from the hospital. However, the adjuster was eager to call me, email me and send me letters to press me to accept a few thousand dollars for my ENTIRE medical costs and personal losses, especially after he knew he could push me right back to my doctors by making me angry. Thus, I had to go back to ER, see cardiologists, explore 6Q tools, and visit Eastern Medicine doctors…
Traditional Treatments for Heart AttackCountless researches found that heart attack is directly related to physical and mental stress. No personal and family history does not spare anyone. Stress is often far worse when challenges are unexpected and intensive, such as mine above. Women often need to handle more stress due to discrimination and other social pathology.
My cardiologists either advised me to let go the car accident or ask me to repeat expensive assessments. They did not have more to offer before my symptoms become severe enough for tent, bridge, bypass, transplant, etc., which are symptom relieves for blood vessel occlusion.
Without a super healthy heart, it is impossible to carry my career and business. To let go such an abuse and end my career and business, I would become a living dead and cost millions of healthcare dollars and other benefits.
Again, I decided to recover myself with my own medicine, the 6Q Approach, which is to meet challenges with the right tools to minimize stress and fully utilize Eastern and Western Medicine to enhance healing further. I first invented the 6Q system to recover myself from Traumatic Brain Injury due to an auto-accident in 1997 and passed medical licensing exams. Through the same 6Q system, I have helped many dying and disabled go home or recover and can develop leadership and get talent ready 10 times faster.
I always knew that the 6Q approach could benefit many heart attack survivors, helped everyone I met, but I have never expected to test my own medicine again. My first cardiologist discharged me from his practice since we had “different philosophies.”
Recover from Heart Attack with More Tools
Traditional treatment does not help survivors meet challenges. It mainly provides symptom reliefs once symptoms are sever enough and monitor cardiac function during the process, so it asks survivors to avoid ALL stress, which is to avoid ALL challenges. However, it can be very painful and stressful not be oneself and not to do what needed. Then Heart Attack becomes the # 1 cause of death for men and women. In fact, many survivors can be their best, manage new challenges to minimize associated stress, stay healthy faster and better, and save tons of money and time.
Most people can manage daily challenges with some IQ and EQ tools. However, complex challenges often require 6Q: IQ, EQ, learning Q, Public Influence Q, Adversity Q and Health Q. Through the 6Q approach, we can find the skills and strategies needed, including avoiding certain challenges, and make learning and implementation as easy and fast as possible. Then stress will decrease significantly, which takes away the big root cause for heart attack.
I have never met an insurance company like Mercury, but I could never let myself crushed because of them. I analyzed myself, explored 6Q tools, trying them out, and then restarted the process as I was pushed back to the hospital or clinic over and over.
It is insurance fraud to deprive the benefits to which victims are entitled. It is inhuman and malice to set a super healthy person up, torture her to develop a heart attack and knowingly push her back to the hospital and clinic over and over. Would you let them go if you were me?
2. Enhance Healing
Each person has a big internal healing system. Most people have done something to maintain and optimize their healing system, and some individuals lose internal healing due to smoking, drugs, diabetes, etc. I did excellently here, but that was not enough to save me from the heart attack.
Healthcare is the next level. I could not benefit from Western medicine more, so I went to Eastern medicine for additional support.
3. I Made It!
I made it and was able to stand up for our business when tech giants started to hack us. It felt great to be able to be who I am, do what I need, and overcome obstacles one after another. Yet, more challenges were waiting for me down the road.
By the time I went to the court with Mercury, I found the Judge did all she could to free Mercury. Then I discovered that she was a former Managing Director of Perkins Coie that represents those tech giants that hack us. They wanted to leave me nothing and stress me further to force me kneel for life. Unfortunately, that was unwise and only strengthened my pursuit of justice and led to faster exposure of the dirty secrets of anti-trust and the legal system. After all, today is not tomorrow. To be fair and do the right things is essential to stay great. Do you agree?Chest pain relapses sometimes, which I can quickly beat with my new tools. My heart’s ejection fraction rate has increased close to the optimal level of function in one year. In the world full of unexpected challenge, nothing can ensure our rights, success and happiness better than our inner power. While we need to stay healthy to pursue our dream and success, be our best, we also need to do our best to protect our health. Survivors like me need to take extra care of themselves, and it is worth it.
4. Not ALL Doctors Are Happy.
However, not all Cardiologists to whom we have talked are excited about our success although most of them immediately understand our success. Maybe they realize that many of their patients will need fewer cardiac tests, and some may never need tent, bridge, bypass, and transplant. Some believe that they have done enough and there is no need to change.
Eastern Medicine doctors had similar reactions. One impressed me deeply—he agreed that Eastern medicine cannot identify the tools and strategies to meet new challenges and lacks emergency support, symptom relieves and intensive care that Western medicine can provide.
No one tool can solve all issues in heart attack. To look at the big picture, know the comfort zone of each tool, and fully utilize different tools is the key to turn “impossible” possible.
5. Who Can Benefit from the 6Q Approach?
Those who can learn and whose heart issues emerge or get worse under stress or challenge-meeting. The more stress can affect, the more the 6Q approach can help. The better the victims can learn, the faster they get well.
No personal and family history, no risk facts and early stage often fasten the recovery, such as my case. Individuals with Takotsubo can benefit from the 6Q approach greatly, for Takotsubo usually results from emotional and physical stress, also called “broken heart syndrome.” Takotsubo predominantly affects post-menopausal woman (90 percent) and top elite since the two groups often face heavy challenges. Most Takotsubo victims have no family or personal history.
Those with personal and family history and risk facts, for example, atherosclerosis and diabetes, have more reasons to optimize internal healing, minimize stress and quit poor stress management, such as smoking, drinking, food, and drugs. Early detection is critical, especially to atherosclerosis victims.
We cannot help those with genetic issues very much since their issues have little to do with the outside world.
How will we help survivors?
In general, we assess survivors at macro and micro levels, identify the tools and strategies they need to manage their challenges and minimize stress. In the meantime, we will evaluate their current health management, help them enhance healing and achieve synergistic results. You can find more information at our website.
Heart attack does not have to be the #1 cause of death for men and women. Symptom relieves, functional tests and life support are essential. With more tools, many heart attack survivors can learn to manage challenges to minimize stress instead of Avoiding ALL Stress, stay healthy better, and save millions in healthcare costs and productivity loss.In the world full of unexpected challenges, while individuals need to stay healthy to be their best, they also need to stay open and do their best to protect their health. Nothing can ensure their rights, success and happiness better than their inner power. My recovery story is a typical example.Are you a heart attack survivor who finds it too hard to Avoid ALL Stress?

Atherosclerosis is another big cause of heart attack, whose first symptom can be a sudden cardiac death or acute MI in >50% of victims, worse than stress’. Still, more dreams and lives can be saved if we can look at the BIGGER picture and fully utilize health and non-health tools.
The studies on 136,905 patients hospitalized found that 77% of them had normal LDL (bad cholesterol, <130 mg/dl), 61.8% had normal triglyceride (<150mg/dl), and 45.5% had normal HDL (good cholesterol, >40 mg/dl). The results indicate that lipid study alone cannot exclude atherosclerosis as well as the risk of heart attack.
Atherosclerosis can be so destructive because it can develop plaque to block the blood supply to brain and heart and cause heart attack and stroke. A person can suffer from both heart attack and stroke at the same time due to Atherosclerosis. Thus, early detection is critical.
In addition to lipid study, other early detection includes electron beam tomography scan or EBT, ultrasound, and CT scan. The Society of Heart Attack Prevention and Eradication (SHAPE) encourages virtually all men 45 and older and women 55 and older to take screening for sub-clinical atherosclerosis to determine their future risk of a heart attack and take action accordingly, such as, to control their diet and take statins to lower their lipid. Below is their 1st guideline.
The exemption from the universal screening are those classified as “very low risk” who meet all of the following criteria:-cholesterol lower than 200(mg/dl),-blood pressure lower than 120 over 80 (mmHg),-no history of any type of diabetes, and-no smoking, and no family history of heart attack.
Now we know that those with “very low risk” can develop heart attack due to another big cause– extensive stress, for example, those with Takotsubo syndrome and me. The tools that enabled me to recover fast can also benefit atherosclerosis victims greatly.
First, manage challenges to minimize stress instead of “AVOID ALL STRESS.” Stress also plays a big role in atherosclerosis since outside challenges can significantly impact victims’ life, work, stress management and other aspects. For example, many people smoke, drink, eat or drug to manage their stress. It is hard to quit smoking, drinking, eating and drugs without the right tools and strategies to meet challenges, minimize stress, and be happy. Behavior management cannot work well here because poor stress management is not simple behaviors but symptom relieves of the underlying system.
Each person is an integrated system of 6Qs (IQ, EQ, Learning Q, Adversity Q, Public Influence Q, and Health Q) and needs to manage internal and external challenges. To make the 6Q system highly efficient will minimize many internal and external challenges, which requires which requires direct 6Q assessment.
Once heart attack occurs, traditional approach would ask victims to “AVOID ALL STRESS.” However, as I have shared in my recovery story, it can be too hard not to do what needed or kneel for life to “AVOID ALL STRESS.” Many victims can learn to manage challenges to minimize stress. The 6Q assessment results will be critical to find the skills and strategies needed to manage new challenges and minimize stress.
Second, enhance healing. Optimal internal healing will also benefit atherosclerosis victims greatly. The 6Q tools can do so in a natural way. One side benefit of achieving optimal health, including internal healing, via 6Q tools is to be 10-15 years younger than the average population. Eastern medicine can strengthen internal healing via non-invasive ways.
Like Dr. Naghavi, the Chairman of SHAPE, said, Status Quo IS Unacceptable. With more tools, more dreams, lives and healthcare dollars can be saved. BYBSH is here to provide additional tools and support to victims and colleagues to save more dreams, lives and healthcare dollars.
