What's good for the heart?
Heart disease has become the leading cause of death in western society. It's like an epidemic, and a very profitable one at that. But our official cures don't work. They do not address the cause of heart trouble.
It seems that simple vitamin C and the aminoacid lysine are what the doctor ordered. Linus Pauling, twice Nobel prize winner, has discovered that these nutrients will strengthen the heart muscle so it can work properly. A vitamin C deficiency is much like scurvy (remember the sailor's disease?) only it's not your teeth falling out - it's the heart that stops working properly.
And what a pity that our human bodies have lost - unlike almost all animals - the ability to manufacture this vitamin as a part of the metabolic process. A gene gone missing, some pathway disturbed - whatever - but the upshot is that we are depending on vitamin C in our food. That was no trouble as long as we were eating mostly fruits and vegetables, but our high tech fast food high grain no vitamins diet is really wreaking havoc. The epidemic is visible, but the cause has not been recognized by our medical guardians, beholden as they are to pharmaceutical interests.
What do we have to do to make them understand? For sure a story such as the one of Carol Smith would be dismissed as "anecdotal evidence", but I anyway want to give it a try.
Heart Technology for only 3 weeks, I have more energy and no chest pains. LIFE IS GREAT!", claims Carol Smith in email correspondence from almost 2-years ago.
The product Ms. Smith discovered, Heart Technology, consists of large amounts of vitamin C and amino acid lysine according to recommendations by the late, twice Nobel prize winner Linus Pauling.
Believing that she had been "cured" and stopping Heart Technology for nine months, Smith suffered her third heart attack. "Big, big mistake," says Carol.
Carol writes, "I restarted Heart Technology in January 2003. My latest EKG shows there is no evidence of any heart damage." Washington heart specialist, Dr. Au, was amazed. "He told my husband it was amazing that I had survived three heart attacks and that there is no longer evidence of any heart damage. My ventricle is beating normally and that I now have a healthy heart."
In April, 2003, the American Heart Association announced the results of experiments showing vitamin C transforms mouse stem cells into heart muscle cells. Richard T. Lee, M.D., senior author of the study, says: "For decades we have been taught that when your heart cells are dead, they are dead and there is nothing we can do about it. That we can grow more heart cells is an exciting prospect."
Lee and his colleagues tested 880 bioactive substances - including drugs and vitamins - approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to see if they stimulated the mouse stem cells to become heart muscle cells.
Lee stated, "We found that only 1 out of the 880 worked, and that was from ascorbic acid, the chemical commonly known as vitamin C," says Lee, an associate professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, and a lecturer in biological engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, Mass.

Ms. Smith reports that in addition to Heart Technology, she takes her "regular heart pills" - one diltiazem 240mg and two Metoprolol Tartrate 50mg every morning. I take one Lisinopril 10mg, 2 Metoprolol Tartrate 50 mg and 1 Plavix 75mg every night.
Carol's entire testimony is posted on the Internet at paulingtherapy.com.
