The Story of Strophanthin

Ouabain or G-Strophanthin is found in the ripe seeds of the African plant Strophanthus Gratus.

Medical and scientific research has confirmed the health benefits of Strophanthin in the prevention and treatment of most heart diseases, including; Myocardial infarction and angina pecoris.

Strophanthin has a track record of zero fatal cardiac events with no reported side effects.

It may therefore be very effective in the treatment of:

– Heart attacks, acute

– Angina pectoris

– Hypertension

– Dementia

– Peripheral artery occlusive disease

Additionaly there have been positive effects reported for:

– Parkinson’s Disease

– Asthma

– Glaucoma.

What is Strophanthin?

Strophanthin was, by chance, discovered in Africa in 1859. In England processed, in France analysed and in Germany first used with great health-effective-qualities, by Prof. Albert Fraenkel (v. interesting piece in wikipedia) intravenously. Fraenkels boss was Prof. Ludolf von Krehl. Both founded important clinics in Heidelberg and Badenweiler and well-known medical prizes are named after them.

In 1924 Prof. Ernst Edens, Ordinarius of Medicin University Clinic Düsseldorf presented to his intern colleagues his outstanding experiences with Strophanthin as a cure for Angina pectoris and Heart attacks. He earned, curiously, not just euphoria but also scepticism and rejection.

Prof Ernst Edens said, “not using Strophanthin is a medical mistake”. Until about 1975 Strophanthin was used intravenously with success in nearly all hospitals and university clinics in Germany and is until today, known for its good effect by all older doctors. Also, older experienced nurses have confirmed to me the great reputation of Strophanthin. Also the oral preparate (orally and not intravenously) developed since 1947, displays convincing results. Even though today it is nearly the best and side-effect free heart remedy, the opinions of medical academics are:

  1. it doesn’t work
  2. it is highly poisonous
  3. there are better remedies today
In response to a:

98 % of all doctors that have used or continued to use Strophanthin, have observed an extremely high effectiveness, the other 2 % remain within limits, positive. None of the doctors asked were negative about its effectiveness. (Questionnaire from 3650 doctors, 1984)

A placebo controlled, double blind study observed a highly significant effectiveness of orally taken Strophanthin. All Angina pectoris patients experienced an improved EKG and a wellness-feeling, for most, a marked improvement in condition.

Prof. Dormann used Strophanthin capsules for 12 years in a large Berlin hospital: 99 % of patients with Angina pectoris took a stomach acid resistant capsule and were complaint free after 2 weeks (82 % after 1 week), all previous remedies were omitted.

Acute heart infarct patients in the clinic received Strophanthin (both oral and intravenous) with the result that the worlds best survival rate was archived. By 1987 over 1000 patients had been treated. In Milan, Prof Agostini experienced similar sensational results.

Success stories: from

Frau Sigrid Hotaki, natural remedy healer, from Coburg has allowed me to publish her story. She wrote to me on 7. July 07.

Dear Dr. Debusmann,

I will gladly put down my experience with Strodival in writing to you.

Before I began taking Strodival (especially by weather change, storm fronts, temperature swings and so on): Heart pain, strain in the jaw, tightness in the heart, dizziness and light nausea, insecurity, anxious. Result: I didn’t trust myself anymore in the car, took taxis, cancelled all possible meetings including important recreational activities. Sat at home and waited for the condition to get better. Self diagnosed therapy: Theophyllin, Magnesium, Natron (if anything, hardly successful, since it brought relief only after 3 or 4 hours).

After taking Strodival: no complaints whatsoever (other than one time in bed a light heart pain that, after 2 Strodival capsules on the tongue, was gone in 10 minutes). The changing weather had no longer any negative effects on my heart when used as you told me with a dry mouth (in the morning in bed whilst lying in order to minimise saliva). In addition, to the above, I have noted the disappearance of pain in the back of my head and I feel all together fresh and no longer tired in the late afternoon, which I had felt for years.

Thanks to you, dear Dr. Debusmann, and by using Strodival, I have got my quality of life back. I am extremely grateful.

With best regards

Sigrid Hotaki.

Email from nature healer Frau Sigrid Hotaki on 17.April 08:

“Dear Herr Dr. Debusmann – best wishes for your lectures and new website. I have managed to turn more people to try Strodival (one of them a long term patient who was motivated by your lecture in the “Munich hofbrauhaus” in Coburg).

I take it, like before, 3 times a day, you in the meantime? Is there proof that the effects last 6 hours? The capsules are on my bedside table and when I, for example wake up at 5 am, I bite two. Since I started taking Strodival, I have no heart pains whatsoever. Also, as you told me, it has had no sudden effects on my heart rhythm disruption but could, after some time, cause a reduction. This is now clearly the case from my own experience.

The proven effects are to see in all my individual weaknesses, an overall better condition.

Suggestion: Invite all your opponents to dinner – there is fish in wine sauce, white bread and plenty of white wine and cheese – a pure acid meal. A tomato salad and unripe tomatoes can also be eaten. 30 minutes later test the guests urine with indicator strips, and then it would show it was in Acid level. ( when not then there is a rare case of dangerous acid block, which should be treated). Your guests bite, under your “state of the art” instruction 2 Strophanthin capsules and 30 minutes later measure again. Result: the urine is in the normal area, the indicator strip deep blue. The reasons I would like to hear but it would at least make the people think.

I wish you all the best with your astounding crusade. More success and also fun!

Best wishes,

Sigrid Hotaki.

Herr Vesters’ Health Story

Dear Herr Dr. Debusmann

I have followed and studied your website with great interest and hope this somewhat long entry will help to win over the sceptics.

I have been involved with Strophanthin for some years, and in 2005 made the following entry in the Guestbook of Mr. Melhorn:

“My uncle has suffered from a weak heart and heart rhythm disruption for years. The medication used was Digitalis, Betablocker and dehydration tablets. In the last 2 years he had to go 2 times into hospital (2 weeks each year). This year he wanted to cancel his holiday because he had for weeks pressure in his heart area and could hardly walk 10 steps (his own diagnosis predicted water in the lungs). Defying common sense he went away with his wife on holiday. The train journey alone made for hard work. At the holiday destination it was almost unthinkable to contemplate leaving their holiday home.

At the same time I was staying in the holiday home complex. As normal I had my Strophanthin ration with me, that I had organized about a year ago since I had tried even then, to persuade my uncle to at least try them out.

In the morning of the third day, my Uncle asked me over. He had sat half the night next to an open window fighting for breath. Sleeping was unthinkable. In the morning in addition to shortage of breath, he experienced a strong pressure in the heart area. He sat at the table and looked miserable. Normally he would be an emergency case for the doctor. I decided however, which with luck was the right decision, to handle the emergency situation myself using Strophanthin. I told him we should wait for maximum 15 minutes before calling a doctor. He, of cause, didn’t want this, he thought it would be o.k. soon.

I took 2 Strodival capsules, cut the ends off, dried his tongue with a cloth and smeared the contents of the capsule on his tongue. I asked him to try not to swallow.

Then it happened, as I had hoped. I must say, after all my research it happened just as I expected. The heart pressure was clearly reduced and my uncle’s breathing promptly improved.

However, aware of my responsibilities, I called a doctor, but not an emergency call. He came 2 hours later and because of the symptoms (and the coming week-end) sent my uncle to hospital for examination. I spoke about Strophanthin but he winked and told me that was in one of the tablets my uncle was taking. That was naturally rubbish, which I discovered by studying the tablet notes. I guess that he mixed it up with Digitalis or didn’t know about Strophanthin at all.

In the hospital my uncle had a dehydration injection and on the next day was examined from head to toe. Thanks to my Aunt we convinced him to take 3 X 2 Strodival per day. We didn’t tell the doctor, that would have been “a waste of time”. After the weekend I spoke to one of the doctors who said he was surprised how well the patient felt,even though they had only made a very slight change to his existing medication. They kept him in hospital for further observation and sent him back on Wednesday. In the meantime I had organized for him another packet of Strophanthin through his doctor and a chemist so that my uncle could enjoy the rest of his holiday.

Three months went by and he got much better. His doctor had even begun to reduce certain medications. Astonished, my uncle mentioned he could walk much further and the chronic cough that was his constant companion, had disappeared. He is in the meantime absolutely convinced about Strophanthin and says he should have begun taking it much earlier. Because the medical academic took such a stand against Strophanthin, it required an emergency to change the view of at least my uncle and his doctor. My uncle is incidentally, well over 80 years old.

3 years have gone by and my uncle has not seen the inside of a hospital for a long time. He feels well. Coincidence? That’s the way many academic doctors would have explained it to me in the past.
