I’m hoping you might shed some light on this situation, which might be applicable to many people.
My husband, age 64, has been slowly improving his “sort-of” low carb diet for the last 6 months or so, and has lost around 25 pounds, down to 204 at 6’1″ tall. He takes quality supplements including fish oil, CoQ10, magnesium, curcumin, vitamins C, D, E, etc.
He recently had a check-up with a cardiologist, which showed LDL at 104, HDL 79, triglycerides 63, normal blood pressure (108/68), A1c down from 5.6 to 5.3, and all other blood work normal.
You’d think the doctor would be cheering, but his nuclear stress test showed more than 80% blockage in one coronary artery, the one going to the bottom of the heart. The doc. wants him on a Statin drug, and wants him to have an angiogram and possible stent inserted. He is concerned about strong family hx of heart disease (both parents died from it and both brothers have had stents/bypass surgery.
My husband wants no part of this mainstream treatment. He has embarked on a very \"clean\" diet, (wild caught/free range meats/ lots of good fats/ plenty of fresh green veg, etc.no grains, junk or dairy) and is wondering what else he can do to clear out this plaque? With such good “numbers”, how much concern is this one blocked artery? He has no symptoms, and exercises moderately, lifting weights and treadmill work a few times a week.
He is also considering adding proteolytic enzymes, Serrapeptase and Nattokinase to his protocol. What do you think about this? Any other suggestions? You have so many different products and formulations we don\'t know which one is most appropriate for him, considering his lack of any symptoms and excellent bloodwork.
Any input greatly appreciated. And thank you for your tireless and constantly inspiring work!
You didn't say how much vitamin C he takes, as this is the key to his condition.
The following post contains instructions to get started on Pauling's therapy,
Once we know his C bowel tolerance, we can recommend a product.
