Pauling’s Therapy for the Reversal of Heart Disease
This is the Linus Pauling Method of how to reverse heart disease:
Vitamin C: Take as much as you can take without experiencing diarrhea. This is called “bowel tolerance”. So
increase your dose by 500 mg per day until you get diarrhea, then back down. After several days, you can try
increasing the dose again. For most people the “bowel tolerance” will be in the range of five to ten grams (5,000-
10,000 mg.) per day. Spread this amount into two equal doses 12 hours apart. You must be consistent with this
L-Proline: 3 grams twice per day (acts to release lipoprotein(a) from plaque formation and prevent further deposition
L-Lysine: 3 grams twice each day (acts to release lipoprotein(a) from plaque formation and prevent further
deposition of same).
Co-enzyme Q10: 90-180 mg. twice per day (strengthens the heart muscle).
L-Carnitine: 3 grams twice per day (also strengthens the heart muscle).
Niacin: Decreases production of lipoprotein(a) in the liver. Inositol hexanicotinate is a form of niacin, which gives less
of a problem with flushing and therefore allows for larger therapeutic doses. Begin with 250 mg at lunch, 500 mg. at
dinner and 500 mg at bedtime the first day; then increase gradually over a few days until you reach four grams per
day, or the highest dose under four grams you can tolerate. Be sure to ask your doctor for liver enzyme level tests
every two months to be sure your liver is able to handle the dose you are taking.
Vitamin E: 800-2400 IU per day. This dose inhibits proliferation of smooth muscle cells in the walls of arteries
undergoing the atherosclerotic changes.
Magnesium: 400–1,000 mg daily. Many heart attacks are caused by dangerously low magnesium levels. Many heart
attacks can be prevented simply by supplementing with this mineral. Magnesium relaxes the smooth muscle tissues
that dilate the arteries and reduce blood pressure.
Hydrolyzed collagen: research has shown that the daily intake of 10,000 mg supports the production of collagen in
the repair of the lining of arteries.
Lifestyle Changes For Preventing Atherosclerosis
There are two lifestyle changes you can get started on right away:
Exercise. Regular exercise helps maintain the health of the vessels leading to the heart. Exercise also can
strengthen the heart muscle itself. Walking after meals, even just for 10 minutes, can reduce blood sugar after
meals, and prevent further damage to the blood vessels.
Stop smoking. Smoking oxidizes cholesterol, causing it to deposit in your blood vessels and contribute to
atherosclerosis. This is the single most important change you can make to reduce your risk of heart disease and
stroke. A great program is 14andout.com.
We are indebted to Linus Pauling for finding the real cure of heart disease caused by plaque in the arteries. Modern
medicine may take another 50 years to come to the same conclusion!
Currently, the medical establishment believes that hardening of the arteries cannot be reversed once it has
occurred. This is what they have seen in their practices because they have not focused on nutritional changes to
help stimulate the healing processes of the body and reverse disease. Thus, what they’re saying is technically true.
However, there’s a whole other part of science that is ignored by medical doctors – that of nutrition. And when
nutritional principles are used, then “miracles” often happen. The body was designed to heal and repair itself.
I’ve put together an e-book with more than 10 different ways you can naturally improve the health of your body’s
collagen. You can download it for free by clicking here.
The bottom line is that you have a choice to make. You can spend a lot of time walking down the same path that
medical doctors walk – with little results and a lot of pain and suffering. Or you can take the fork in the road that
looks at what else is out there – and then try it.
With commitment to alternative treatments and changes to your diet and lifestyle, you can reclaim your health. You
won’t be the first person that did and you won’t be the last.
Understanding how a disease starts and evolves helps you become empowered to do something about our health.
And once you use some of these techniques, you may start to feel better in a lot of ways. Your quality of life will
improve, and you’ll look in the mirror and see you appear healthier. Step by step, you’re changing the course of
asking and answering medical questions
