After reviewing all English language papers published between 1966 and January 11, 2002 on vitamins and the prevention of occlusive coronary artery disease and other conditions, the authors of this paper concluded that lipoprotein a and other nutrients are effective in arterial plaque removal and prevention.

Fairfield, 2002: 287(June 19): 3116-3129. Dr. Joseph Mercola "In 1989, the eminent American scientist Linus Pauling and his associate Matthias Rath MD, unlocked a medical mystery . . . Then in 1991, Linus Pauling invented a non-prescription cure . . . Heart patients using the Pauling Therapy routinely avoid angioplasty and open heart surgery. Not by lowering cholesterol, but by attacking the root cause. Rapid recovery has been the rule, not the exception . . . there are no known adverse side effects."

Dr. Michael Lam "If you have a high lipoprotein(a), the only way to bring it down is with the Pauling Therapy."

Dr. Lam has published over 50 scientific articles and 2 books on nutritional medicine. Dr. Lam's website is http://www.lammd.com. Dr. Robert Fulton Cathcart, III Dr. Cathcart calls the mainstream medical community's refusal to accept the nutritional cause and cure of heart disease along with it's refusal to fund further research into the Pauling Therapy . . . â€œTHE MOST COLOSSAL BLUNDER IN MEDICAL HISTORY!â€ [emphasis and color of text by Dr. Cathcart] Dr. Cathcart is an orthopedic surgeon and inventor of the Cathcart hip prosthesis (used to replace the ball portion of the hip joint). He is published in The Lancet, Journal of the American Medical Association, Medical Tribune, Journal of Orthomolecular Psychiatry, Medical Hypothesis, Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine, and many other medical journals. His research is mentioned in 14 medical books, including How to Live Longer and Feel Better, by Dr. Linus Pauling. Dr. Pauling wrote an article entitled, "Robert Fulton Cathcart, III, M.D.: An Orthomolecular Physician", which was published in The Linus Pauling Institute of Science and Medicine Newsletter. [1978 (Fall); 1(4): 1-3] So far Dr. Cathcart has successfully treated over 30,000 patients with nutritional therapy. His website is www.orthomed.com. Dr. Terezia Fauszt, M.D. "In my opinion, an arterial cleansing program provides the most benefits when it's combined with the so-called Pauling Therapy for Heart Disease. Two-time Nobel laureate, Dr. Linus Pauling and his colleague, Dr. Matthias Rath, advocated taking large quantities of one of the most potent antioxidants, vitamin C, with the amino acids L-lysine and L-proline for the prevention and reversal of heart disease."

The article was removed after SaveYourHeart.com requested permission to use Dr. Fauszt's picture on this Web site. We believe quoting Dr. Fauszt here is "fair use." Dr. Fauszt is a practicing cardiologist. He is both a faculty member of and medical advisor for the Global Institute for Alternative Medicine. Dr. Ron Kennedy, M.D. "The best part of Dr. Rath's discoveries is that they provide effective action anyone can take to both prevent and treat vascular disease in a powerful way by natural means without relying on Draconian changes in diet and lifestyle or dangerous drugs which lower cholesterol but do nothing to decrease overall mortality." The entire article can be found at: http://www.medical-library.net/sites/framer.html?/site/_vitamin_c_and_vascular_disease.html Dr. John Cooke (M.D., PhD.) "We have learned a great deal in the last few years about how certain nutrients, vitamins, and dietary supplements can enhance the health of blood vessels. If you are at risk for developing heart disease, or already have significant vessel damage, you need to know that you can strengthen your blood vessels with nutritional supplements - nutrients I have successfully used to repair the functioning of the heart and blood vessels in my patients." Dr. Cooke is Professor of Medicine at Stanford University School of Medicine and Director of the Vascular Medicine Section of the University's Medical School. He believes that cardiovascular disease can be cured without drugs or surgery. Dr. Gerald Reaven "Helping yourself prevent a heart attack means knowing more than your cholesterol count. Your endothelium (the lining of your blood vessels) plays a vital role in this process. It is important to know what you can do to keep this vital organ as healthy as possible." Dr. Reaven is Professor of Medicine at the Stanford University School of Medicine. Dr. Jay N. Cohn "Everyone should worry about the health of their endothelium and, better still, do something to protect it if it shows signs of damage. Early identification and treatment of blood vessel damage should be the preventive agenda for the new millenium." Dr. Cohn is Professor of Medicine at the University of Minnesota Medical School. Dr. Ferid Murad, M.D., Ph.D. "Treatment with exercise and a diet rich in vitamins, anti-oxidants, and amino acids is important to the many patients prone to develop heart attacks or stroke." Dr. Murad is Director of the Institute of Molecular Medicine at the University of Texas and the 1998 Nobel Laureate in Medicine.
