Heart disease is a killer, sometimes one whose symptoms go unnoticed until it is too late! Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. It affects both men and women of all ages. My mother had a heart attack at the age of 55. Both of her brothers also had heart problems and both ended up having bypass surgeries. After discussing various health topics with my Uncle Ray one night, he challenged me to take better care of my heart that he had. His challenge is what got me to really thinking about heart health and the importance of doing all that we can to take care of our hearts.
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. Carotid Artery
People whose bodies do not receive the proper nutrients will not be able to produce a substance called collagen that is necessary to repair the lesions in the artery wall. Without the presence of collagen, the body will do whatever it can to prevent the artery from leaking. So it grabs particles it finds floating in the blood stream and forms a make shift patch to place over the lesion. After a while, these patches get thicker and thicker producing what we know as plaque build-up. A person whose body always receives the right amount of nutrients will be able to reduce the accumulation of plaque build-up and sometimes eliminate it altogether.
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.
