Heart disease is all too common nowadays. Year after year people die from this dreaded disease. It has plagued my family too. My mother had a heart attack at the young age of 55. Both of her brothers have undergone by-pass surgeries for plaque build-up. My Uncle Ray and I were talking one night about various health issues when I casually stated that I sure hoped I did not end up having his heart problems. He informed me quite frankly that I needed to make sure that I took better care of my heart than he had his. If I didn’t, I would find myself in the same mess he had been in.
The more time that I spent thinking about heart health, the more I wanted to find out about it. So I started researching. I literally dove into reading every type of medical literature I could find – from articles, to medical journals and magazines, and anything I could find on the topic of heart disease causes and preventions. That is when I discovered the amazing research of doctors by the name of Dr. Linus Pauling and Dr. Matthias Rath. The results of their research was nothing short of astonishing!
Without the proper 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.
There are many today that think they are getting all the nutrients they need because they eat a healthy diet of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Unfortunately, this is not to be the case and many of those people end up getting heart disease. This is because many of the fruits and vegetable that are sold in grocery stored today are treated with modern fertilizers and pesticides which prevent them from being able to provide the proper nutrients. Dr. Pauling’s research revealed that when a person receives the proper dosage of certain nutrients and the right time, the body will be able to function properly and help to prevent heart disease.
