A Simple Natural Cure and Preventive Therapy for Cardiovascular Disease (CVD)

There is a simple and inexpensive natural therapy - treatment - remedy for reversing and preventing cardiovascular diseases - heart disease, arrythmia, stroke, diabetes, and numerous other circulatory diseases - and a path to faster recovery for stroke victims. It has been proven in thousands of patients. This article explains why it works and why your doctor has probably never heard of it.

You don't need Lipitor or Zocor or Crestor!

You don't need Lipitor, Zocor, Crestor, or other statin drugs, beta blockers, or calcium channel blockers. (The statin drugs are actually toxic chemicals that will eventually cause degeneration of your nervous system.) The Pauling-Rath Therapy, described below, can normalize your cholesterol and/or high blood pressure, while gently healing your arteries and removing plaque.

(If you are not yet familiar with natural therapies, please click here for an easy-to-read introduction at the Natural Therapy website home page.)

The Root Cause of Heart Disease and other Cardiovascular Diseases is NOT cholesterol!

The answer to what really causes heart disease was discovered over a decade ago by Dr. Matthias Rath, a research physician from Germany, and a famous biochemist named Dr. Linus Pauling. Pauling devoted the last years of his long life (he died in 1994 at the age of 93) working with Rath to discover the root cause of heart disease.

Before 1990, it had become accepted fact that the cause of cardiovascular disease was "lesions" (areas of injured tissue) of the coronary and brain artery walls and "plaques" (sticky masses) of "LDL cholesterol" which accumulated there.

But Rath and his collegues at Hamburg University had found that the plaques were not LDL cholesterol but were made from a similar cholesterol-based protein called lipoprotein(a). Rath met with Pauling to share his findings, and they decided to work together to go a step further. They asked the questions:

1. Why did the lesions form in the first place?

2. Why did the lipoprotein(a) plaques form on the lesions?

3. Why do heart patients and others at risk of heart disease and stroke have more LDL cholesterol and lipoprotein(a) in their bloodstream?

After careful analysis, this is what they discovered:

1. Arteries, veins, an every other part of our bodies are constantly undergoing decay, repair, and replacement. To repair and replace tissue properly, our bodies must produce a binding protein called collagen. To form collagen, your body needs large quantities of ascorbate - vitamin C. If you don't have enough ascorbate to make collagen, the artery walls will form lesions of disrepair. If you took no vitamin C at all, you would get scurvy - the lesions would rupture and you'd die of internal bleeding.

2. The body appears to compensate, but in a way that is not healthy. Lipoprotein(a) is attracted to the lesions, forming sticky clots - arterial plaques - as a "band-aid" to prevent you from bleeding to death. But long term, combining with other normal repair substances, the plaques grow in size, eventually blocking smaller arteries such as those that provide blood to the heart  - the coronary arteries - causing a heart attack, or blocking or bursting the small arteries in the brain - causing strokes.

3. Cholesterol - a basic building block in the bloodstream - is supposed to be regulated by being recycled - converted to bile and excreted through the intestines. Large quantities of ascorbate - vitamin C - are needed for this conversion to take place. If you don't have enough vitamin C, excess cholesterol and lipoprotein(a) will build up in your bloodstream.

4. Most mammals - with the exception of humans, primates & monkeys, guinea pigs and a few rare animals - produce their own ascorbate. Animals that produce their own ascorbate never get cardiovascular disease and do not have significant lipoprotein(a) in their bloodstream. In his previous research on vitamin C, Pauling had discovered that the amount of vitamin C recommended by the FDA - 60 mg per day - is 30 to 300 times smaller than the concentration found in other mammals. Putting it another way, humans would need to eat between 2 and 20 grams (2000 to 20,000 milligrams) of vitamin C per day to have as much ascorbate as other animals.

In 1991 Pauling and Rath published their groundbreaking paper: "Solution to the Puzzle of Human Cardiovascular Disease: Its Primary Cause is Ascorbate Deficiency Leading to the Deposition of Lipoprotein(a) and Fibrinogen/Fibrin in the Vascular Wall."

Thus the major part of the puzzle of cardiovasular disease - its root cause - had been found. Inadequate vitamin C causes inability to produce sufficient collagen to repair the artery walls. Lesions form in the highest-stress areas, such as in the walls of the coronary arteries, and lipoprotein(a) is attracted to the lesions, forming plaques. The plaques grow in size until the blood flow is partially or completely cut off or an artery bursts (angina, arrhythmia, heart attack or stroke). Putting it another way, cardiovascular diseases are a symptom of long-term low-level scurvy (vitamin C deficiency).

The answer of how to prevent heart disease and other vascular diseases was clear: having sufficient ascorbate - vitamin C - in your bloodstream. Learning from the anatomy of other animals that do not get cardiovascular disease, that means consuming between 2 and 20 grams of vitamin C per day - 30-300 times the adult RDA - depending on general health, level of stress, etc., scaled down by weight for children and infants (e.g., you would provide a 20-lb toddler with a minimum of 250 mg, 1/8 of the dose for an adult).

Finding A Cure

Pauling and Rath then asked themselves the question of how these plaques - formed over years of insufficient vitamin C - could be reversed. They had found that the lipoprotein(a) had been attracted to the lesion by the presence of common amino acids lysine and proline. As a biochemist, Pauling hypothesized that if there were sufficient vitamin C and more-than-normal amounts of lysine in the bloodstream, then the lipoprotein(a) might be attracted away from the lesion and that normal collagen would take its place, restoring the artery wall to a healthy state.

An associate of Pauling who had serious heart insufficiency tried the hypothesis. He had already been taking large doses of vitamin C, but was not getting any relief. Pauling suggested taking large amounts of supplemental lysine per day, and it worked. Within a few months he was able to function normally, and there was strong evidence that his plaques were being reversed and the arteries healed. He increased the dosage and recovered completely.

The same happened with other of Pauling's associates, friends, and acquaintances. Within a few years, hundreds of people had reported that their heart disease had been totally reversed.

But the medical profession and the National Institutes of Health were not interested or impressed. The idea that heart disease was due to a simple nutritional deficiency and that a simple regimen of inexpensive nutrients and very low-level exercise to get those nutrients to circulate was very threatening to a medical system geared to - and economically dependent on - invasive medical procedures and expensive prescription drugs.

Drug companies and for-profit hospitals have hundreds of billions of dollars at stake in investment and future revenues in conventional heart and vascular therapy. Pauling and Rath's findings - if they became common knowledge and their therapy used by the medical profession - would eradicate cardiovascular disease in humans.

Twice the NIH flatly refused to fund studies of the regimen, citing extraneous "technicalities" for not proceeding. The National Academy of Sciences first accepted, then without reason canceled publication of Pauling and Rath's definitive paper on the cause of cardiovascular disease, despite Pauling being an honored member of the Academy, one of the founders of modern chemistry and molecular biology, and recipient of two unshared Nobel Prizes.

In essence, the NIH, the NAS, and the medical profession marginalized Pauling and Rath's great work: a simple preventive and cure for the diseases that account for half of the premature deaths in the industrialized countries, in addition to untold needless suffering, infirmity, and expense.
