I thought I would take a minute and tell you my story.
Two years back I was feeling really bad. By January of 2010 I was in the hospital and had 3 heart stents. In addition I was told I had 3 more smaller blockages. When my cardiologist came in to talk to me after the procedure he told me I was now "their" heart patient for the rest of my life. That kind of pushed me the wrong way as I have always been a man who did not like being "owned". That is when I found the Pauling therapy.
When I began taking the vitamin C, l-lysine and l-proline my blood pressure was 140 over 90 even while taking 3 different meds. 6 weeks later my BP was down to 120 over 75 and I felt very good. Much better than when I walked out of the hospital. As time went on my BP actually got so low I started to reduce the meds on my own. It was also during this time I dropped the Plavix and really freaked out my cardiologist. I have always taken aspirin because of my arthritis and after reading a report by the Cleveland Institute I realized that Plavix =
was nothing more than really expensive aspirin. Plus it caused some bleeding from my stomach.
One year and 10 months after the heart stents my arteries are clear and I only take one BP med which is the water pill. My BP averages right around 115 over 70 with a pulse of 80 which has always been a little higher. I have no doubt that the Pauling therapy works and it is cheap! I use a maintenance program now of 2,000 mg of vitamin C, 1,000 mg of L-Lysine and L-Proline. I do take a triple strength Omega 3 fish oil as I refuse to take statins.
In closing I honestly feel if I had known about the Pauling therapy 3 years ago I would have never ended up having stents.
Thank you very much for sharing your story! We all owe a lot to Linus Pauling.
I wouldn't cut back too much - if we know anything, we know that all the problems are from people feeling "cured" who cut back or drop off completely.
