Contrary to popular belief and the propaganda of the drug companies and conventional medicine, cholesterol is not the leading cause of coronary artery disease. Coronary artery disease is both preventable and curable. While elevated cholesterol may correlate with coronary artery disease, it does not cause it. It is the consequence of it. Let me explain.

Coronary artery disease is the result of inflammation caused by:

  • Toxins from chemical pollutants in the environment, such as fluoride and the petrochemical products in the air we breathe, the food we eat, the liquids we drink, and the lotions and colognes we apply to our bodies
  • Heavy metals, such as mercury and lead
  • Bacterial and viral infections, most commonly Chlamydia, Helicobacter pylori and the bacteria found in infectious diseases of the gums
  • Foods, such as sugar and simple carbohydrates, that cause your body to create inflammatory substances which circulate in your blood

The coronary arteries that are attached to your heart are under a tremendous amount of mechanical stress. Your heart beats approximately 72 times a minute, over 100,000 beats per day, every day of your life. This stress is caused by the bending and stretching of the coronary arteries that occurs with every heartbeat. Elevated blood pressure also increases the stress on coronary arteries. This chronic stress weakens the walls of the coronary arteries, especially when they have been damaged by toxins and disease. Imagine what your water hose would look like if you stepped on it 100,000 times per day, day in and day out.

The coronary arteries have a healing process. The primary mechanism for healing these arteries is collagen. Collagen is the protein glue that holds all your cells together. The stress on the coronary arteries breaks down the collagen and it must be continually replenished with new collagen.

Adequate amounts of vitamin C are required for healthy collagen production. The amino acids, proline and lysine, are required to strengthen collagen. When the body does not have enough vitamin C to produce adequate amounts of collagen to heal the arteries, a natural backup mechanism occurs. Lipoprotein a (Lp(a)), a fraction of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol is mobilized to heal the inflamed, raw lesions on the coronary arterial wall. Think of this process as putting a band-aid on a wound. As more Lp(a) builds up on that arteries, you develop a fatty substance on the arterial wall, known as plaque. When calcium is incorporated into the plaque, then you develop atherosclerosis, the hardening of your arteries.

Atherosclerosis is derived from the Greek word, athero, which means porridge, and sclerosis, which means hardening. Calcium enters the soft plaque and hardens it. As the plaque grows within the artery, blood flow is diminished, and this can eventually lead to a blockage of the artery, and ultimately, to a heart attack. As I mentioned, the underlying cause of heart disease is an inflamed, deteriorating coronary arterial wall. The primary response of the body to treat this deterioration is to repair the arterial wall with collagen. Remember, in order to make adequate amounts of collagen to heal your arteries, you need sufficient amounts of vitamin C

You may not be aware that the only mammals that don't make vitamin C are human beings, primates, guinea pigs, and bats. All other mammals make vitamin C in the amount of approximately 1,000 mg per 25 pounds of body weight. This is the reason that animals do not have heart attacks, but humans do. At 66 years of age I weight 170 pounds and have taken 10,000 mg of vitamin C daily for 25 years. My heart scan has a calcium score of zero, which means that I have no hardening of the arteries. You should be taking large doses of vitamin C, too.

A heart scan is the only non-invasive way to determine whether you have coronary artery disease. If you are over 40 years old, then you should have a heart scan performed. If you do have atherosclerosis, then I highly recommend my personally-designed heart treatment protocol.

The Heart Pak contains therapeutic doses of vitamin C, L-lysine, L-proline, vitamin K2 and ubiquinol, all which work synergistically towards supporting optimal cardiovascular function. This combination of heart health supplements helps to sweep build-up away from the aterial walls, while also promoting collagen production and healthy blood pressure and cholesterol levels. . Don't wait another day to take charge of your health.
