I am trying very hard to get good research information about the Pauling Therapy. I am a 59 yr old male with moderate Cardio Vascular Disease. I have 2 blockages (50%) and a very high calcium score for my age as reported by my mri of my heart. I started the prophalytic dose of the Pauling Therapy on 8-5-07, with my cardiologist's approval. He is monitoring my blood work (especially my Lipoprotein a levels). He is very doubtful this therapy will work or be advantageous for me. Since starting I have felt no changes (for the better or worse) and am trying to find some good studies or trials using
Pauline. The one web site I went to hasn't had a post in over 2 years (the one with a lot of Pauling testimonials) and various searches keep showing the same 7-8 sites with the same information, but no good convincing data or new information. I am especially interested in negative results and findings
My cardiologist is having trouble figuring out if the Pauling treatment is supposed to decrease the calcium deposit and how it would do it.
I would appreciate any leads, sites, or information you could share with me.
It sounds like you have a fine doctor. You are lucky!
What is the therapy? What are you taking? Are you following the protocol here: http://thecureforheartdisease.com/protocol.htm
Dosages, particularly of vitamin C are critical. At least 10,000 mg and 20,000 is probably close to optimal for someone with CVD. What is the form of vitamin C?
And no, this therapy will not directly affect calcium scores or arterial stiffness. (You can have excellent blood flow, no narrowing or blockages, and still have a high calcium count on the CT Scan. Also, you can have a low calcium score, but still
have dangerous blockages.)
The best method for reducing a calcium score is to take vitamin K. (There are discussions of the best form of vitamin K here, at our forum -> Heart Disease)
Either K1 (mgs) or K2 (mcgs). Vitamin K acts like a hormone to move calcium from soft tissue into bones. Also, make sure you magnesium at least equals your calcium intake.
What are your starting numbers? The most objective benefits are the reduction in overall cholesterol and Lp(a).
Most of the recent testimonials have been added to the forum I already mentioned.
