Vitamin C and Heart Disease

Last Update: Mon Nov 19 23:16:51 EST 2012

"I think we can get almost complete control of cardiovascular disease, heart attacks and strokes by the proper use of (vitamin C and lysine) ... even cure it." - From Linus Pauling's Last Interview

Linus Pauling and Matthias Rath alerted the world to the cause of heart disease in 1989 -- a chronic, sub-clinical vitamin C deficiency. Their elegant theory explains why the so-called "Pauling Therapy" (vitamin C and lysine) at high doses is so effective in fighting heart disease. Yet, this important scientific development goes against all medical training. This theory and therapy have and are not being investigated by modern medicine.



Breaking - NFAIM.org Chairman and former Congressman Berk Bedell "on death bed" Recovers on Linus Pauling's Therapy for Heart Disease.

Former congressman Berkley Bedell is Chairman of the Foundation for Alternative and Integrative Medicine (FAIM.org). While in congress, he was a co-sponsor of the Office of Alternative Medicine at the National Institutes of health. He is and has been a great friend of alternative medicine. We heard about his illness earlier this year (reportedly he was near death from heart disease.) We then sent him a "care package" of our Cardio-C and literature. Today, we were happy to receive this cautiously optomistic letter from him! (Aug 20, 2012)

Bedell's Cautiously Optomistic Letter to Owen

March 24, 2006

"Hi Owen
You may want to know that I put my uncle on the Heart Technology (vitamin C/lysine) formula a mere 10 days ago and his cardiologist did an EKG and called him up, excitedly, telling him that it looked as if he had never even had a heart attack (He has had 3!!!).

His doctor told him to continue doing whatever it was he was doing. Needless to say, we are all very excited to hear that!!!

Sincerely, 
Jim S.

Fonorow Book: Pauling Therapy for Heart Disease

"After saying the same things over and over to doctors and patients alike for many years, I decided to put this amazing information into book form. There is a cure for heart disease, and it works in days. It boggles the mind that this therapy has never been studied by modern medicine, or at least published, probably because no one needs a doctor to use it."

COMPARING THE "LIPID THEORY" WITH THE "UNIFIED THEORY"
ONE PHARMACIST'S VIEW OF CORONARY HEART DISEASE
"Let'start by thinking about "sludge" in a plumbing system. Sludge tends to plug up the smallest pipes in the system first - not the largest.

Likewise, if the system is cardiovascular, you would expect sludge (plaques) to build up first in the capillaries and arterioles, long before appearing in the carotid and coronary arteries. The first blockages, similarly, you would expect to occur way downstream of the pump, not in close proximity to the heart, where the pressure is the greatest.

Yet, this is not the way cholesterol plugs up arteries. It's the exact reverse. So a plumber's take would be that something else is happening."

Dr. Thomas Levy's new book STOP AMERICA'S #1 KILLER is available.

Dr. Levy is medical doctor and a cardiolgist by training. Some time ago, Dr. Levy analyzed all 27 known cardiovascular disease risk factors. Levy discovered that they all can be reduced to a single factor - low vitamin C.

Just released, the new Levy book surveys the massive scientific evidence connecting dietary vitamin C deficiency with the cause of the circulartory condition commonly called heart disease. The disease condition is characterized by atherosclerotic plaque build-ups in arteries leading to angina, heart attack and stroke.

Eyes: A Window to the Heart...

Dr. Sydney Bush, a noted British optometrist, is the founder of CardioRetinometry, a new medical field that analyzes the future health of the heart. "We are looking into life's secrets," Bush said, "When we look inside the eye - to call it a crystal ball of your future is an understatement." In addition, Bush found that vitamin C can improve that future. With Cardioretinometry, doctors can actually track how much vitamin C diminishes the amount of cholesterol in the blood vessels."

"The study published July 16, 2003 in CARDIOLOGY tracked more than 85,000 nurses over 16 years found that those taking vitamin C supplements (360 mg) had almost 30 percent lower risk of getting heart disease. The number of deaths from heart disease every year is estimated at 950,000.

Interestingly, dietary intake of vitamin C seemed to have little effect on coronary heart disease risk. But if women used vitamin C supplements, their risk was reduced by 27 percent."

Why They Lie...


Lowering Lp(a) with Ascorbate, Lysine and Proline.

Our Grant Application to Study Pauling Therapy for Heart Disease that was submitted to the Federal NIH National Center for Complimentary and Alternative Medicine... DENIED!!

Linus Pauling filmed the video Heart Disease: A Unified Theory of Cause and Treatment to tell the world that ultra high doses of ascorbate (Vitamin C) and lysine should be used to treat heart patients.

For patients following the advice of their cardiologists, and not supplementing vitamin C, the Pauling Therapy is a miracle.

In 1993, Pauling recommended not waiting for a time-consuming expensive double-blind study because the potential benefits so far out weigh the risks. Was Pauling right? . Does it really matter? There are no known harmful side effects.

As of this date, medicine has ignored Pauling and has still not run a double-blind controlled trial!

Millions more may die if the medical profession does not get with it. See http://www.PaulingTherapy.com for Detailed Information on the nature and cure for Heart Disease.

AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION BAD ADVICE: Don't Take Supplements??!?

The proper advice is for the AHA to RECOMMEND supplements for everyone until vitamin C is proven NOT to work. Vitamin C may be extremely beneficial to heart patients and provides low cost insurance. - Owen Fonorow


Recent science ignored by the AHA:
  1. 2003 Harvard: 15-YEAR HARVARD STUDY OF 85,000 FINDS SINGLE VITAMIN C PILL REDUCES HEART DISEASE ALMOST 30%.
    Interestingly, dietary intake of vitamin C seemed to have little effect on coronary heart disease risk. But if women used vitamin C supplements, their risk was reduced by 27 percent. According to the numbers in [this story] A single 360 mg vitamin C pill daily would save more than 300,000 lives per year.
  2. 2003 UK: ANTIOXIDANT VITAMINS AND MORTALITY IN OLDER PRESONS...
    FINDINGS: Strong inverse relationship for blood ascorbate (vitamin-C) concentrations with all-cause and cardiovascular disease mortality, which were only marginally reduced after adjustment for confounders or supplement use. Those in the lowest fifth (< 17 micromol/L) had the highest mortality, whereas those in the highest fifth (> 66 micromol/L) had a mortality risk nearly half that (hazard ratio = 0.54; 95% CI: 0.34, 0.84). Similar results were found after the exclusion of those subjects with cardiovascular disease or cancer at baseline (hazard ratio = 0.51; 0.28, 0.93). In fully adjusted models, there was no evidence for an influence of alpha-tocopherol (vitamin-E), beta-carotene, or retinol (vitamin-A) on total mortality. Dietary antioxidants measured by the food-frequency questionnaire were not associated with all-cause or cardiovascular disease mortality"

Given no hope... "The Vascula surgeon is staggered... The artery is now clear." - Sep 2005

Hello Owen,

You maybe interested in the following information.

I have now been taking Pauling's therapy [Vitamin C/Lysine] for a period of two years. The amount taken has been 3000mg ea. in total each day, split morning & evening. I may have missed on a couple of occasions. These quantities are listed as a preventive dose. Prior to taking Linus Pauling's therapy my condition was as follows.

  • I was admitted to Hospital with a stroke 24/004/03.
  • The only damage I suffered was loss of eyesight in the left eye.
  • Following my discharge from hospital I was subjected to a Carotid angiogram which proved unsuccessful due to the plague within the arteries. The left artery was down to a trickle with atherosclerosis spreading deeper into my cranium. My right artery was also infected with atherosclerosis .
  • At this stage I decided on a second opinion. The results were the same. I was virtually told that it was only a matter of time.
  • At this point of the saga I decided I would navigate my own destiny. " Enter [The Pauling Vitamin c/lysine therapy]" [*]
  • The only one request to my vascular surgeon would they monitor by scan the effect . This they agreed.
  • I have been scanned every six months.
  • Eighteen months has passed and no comment has been made by the Vascular surgeon.

In June 22/6/05 I had my last scan. The result is the left Carotid artery according to the Vascular surgeon has closed down. The atherosclerosis beyond the blockage, which was entering deeper into my cranium has disappeared, in other words, the artery is clear. My right artery is also clear.

The Vascula surgeon is staggered.

Maybe had I gone onto the therapeutic quantities, my left artery may have cleared the plaque blocking it?

However this is very good news. My next scan is in December so I am hoping for just as good news. will keep you posted on the next scan.

regards Gerald G. (Australia)
