Heart disease is definitely nothing new. At the age of only 55 years old, my mother had a heart attack. She wasn't the only one in her family to have heart problems. Both of her brothers have undergone bypass operations because of plaque build-up. After conversing with my one night with my Uncle Ray on various health topics, I halfheartedly told him that I hoped I would not inherit his heart problems. Uncle Ray's smile faded and he got very serious. Looking me straight in the eye, he informed me that I needed to do a lot more to take care of my heart than he did or else I very well may end up like him.
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!
These doctors discovered that the accumulation of plaque on the interior lining of your arteries, which is known as atherosclerosis, actually starts with mechanical stress. Our arteries are very flexible.
Every time the heart beats, the arteries open and close. The closer the artery is to the heart, the greater the stress can get. And over time, this mechanical stress can cause tears or lesions within the artery. For healthy people who get the proper nutrition, these lesions are not a threat. The body will naturally heal them. But for those who do not get the proper nutrition, the lesions are a BIG problem. Coronary Arteries
If a body fails to receive proper nutrition, it cannot produce a substance called collagen which is necessary to repair the lesions in the arterial lining. Without the presence of collagen, the body will do whatever it can to prevent the artery form leaking. So, it randomly grabs whatever it can find floating around in the blood stream and then forms a patch to cover the lesion. Over time, these patches will get thicker and cause plaque build-up. When someone receives and maintains the proper nutrients, their body can actually reduce and eventually eliminate the formation of plaque build-up.
Many times people will think they are getting the proper nutrients because their diet consists of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. However, many of these people end up getting heart disease even though they do their best to eat healthy. This is because the use of modern pesticides, fertilizers, and herbicides on fruits and vegetables actually prevent the produce from having adequate nutrients. Dr. Pauling’s research showed that heart disease can be controlled by the administration of certain nutrients and a specific time and at proper levels.
Paulings important discoveries prompted 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.
