One of the leading causes of death in the US is heart disease. It is nothing new to my family. Two of my uncles have had bypass surgery because of clogged arteries and plaque build-up and at the age of 55, my mother had a heart attack. After having a long talk with my Uncle Ray one night about the importance of good health, he made me a challenge I have determined to not take lightly. He challenged me to take better care of my heart than he had taken of his. Uncle Ray’s challenge really got me to thinking about the importance of heart health and my thinking got me to researching.
As I thought about the subject of heart health, I began researching too. I dove into all sorts of medical literature, searching and reading everything I could find on the matter of heart health. My initial research led to the same old basic information that most everyone knows about helping your heart such as: loosing weight, eating right, and of course, exercising. But as I delved further into my research, I found the results of another researcher - Dr. Linus Pauling and Dr. Matthias Rath. What I learned from their discoveries was astonishing and quite frankly – life saving!
The conclusion that these doctors came to is that the accumulation of plaque inside the arteries is due to mechanical stress. They explained that the arteries are very flexible and work extremely hard. Arteries actually open and close each time the heart beats. The closer the artery is to the heart, the greater the stress can be. Over a period of time, continued mechanical stress can cause little tears or lesions within the artery. For people with healthy bodies that receive the right nutrients, this is not too big of a problem. The body will actually heal itself. However, for those who fail to receive the proper nutrients, these lesions can cause major problems. Atheromatous Plaque
If denied the necessary nutrition the body cannot produce collagen and other important substances that are necessary to repair the torn places in the arteries. Therefore, your body will do the next best thing by grabbing whatever it can find floating around in the bloodstream and make a patch to put over the tear and prevent the artery from leaking. This serves the purpose periodically, but over time the patches get thicker and cause what is known as plaque build-up and can end up blocking the arteries. With the proper nutrition, however, the body can produce collagen and repair the lesions. Those who get the proper nutrients in their diet can eliminate plaque build-up and reduce their risk of heart disease.
Unfortunately, many people who think they are getting the proper nutrients because they eat a healthy diet full of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains end up having heart disease. The reason for this is because the vegetables and fruits you buy at the grocery store do not have the nutrients they once did due to modern fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides. Besides determining the cause for heart disease, Dr. Pauling’s research also led to the experiments that showed that heart disease can be controlled by administering the proper nutrients at the proper dosage.
The discoveries that Pauling made is what led me to join with a team of PhDs in nutrition and Douglas Laboratories to produce an amazing nutritional supplement called the Pauling Therapy Essentials Formula. This supplement is filled with all the necessary nutrients to keep arteries healthy, strong, flexible, and virtually plaque-free.
