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.
After pondering for a while about 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!
What the doctors discovered is that plaque build-up actually starts due to mechanical stress. This accumulation of plaque is known as atherosclerosis. Arteries are very flexible and open and close every time the heart beats. They work hard, and the closer they are to the heart, the harder they work and the greater the stress. Over time this mechanical stress can cause lesions to occur within the artery. For people that are healthy and have the proper nutrients in their body, these lesions are nothing to worry about. The body will naturally heal itself. However, for those people that do not get the proper nutrients, the lesions can be a huge problem. Foods That Reduce Arterial Plaque
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.
Many people today who think they are getting the proper nutrients because they eat a healthy diet of vegetables and fruit are really not getting all that is needed to prevent heart disease. Many times these people end up with serious heart problems. This is because many of the fruits and vegetables sold today are treated with modern fertilizers and pesticides that prevent the produce from producing adequate nutrients. Dr. Pauling’s research showed that when people are administered the proper amounts of certain nutrients, the body will be able to function correctly to help prevent heart disease.
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.
