Linus Pauling`s Vitamin C Therapy for Cardiovascular Disease - Prevention, Plaque Removal

Pauling`s discovery that cardiovascular disease is scurvy of the arteries was made 30 years ago and still very relevant today & there is 70 years of science including clinical studies to show the effectiveness and safety of Vitamin C Therapy.

“I think we can get almost complete control of cardiovascular disease, heart attacks and strokes by the proper use of this therapy ... even cure it.” – from Linus Pauling’s Last Interview

Linus Pauling's specific therapy for cardiovascular and heart diseases are high dosages of two essential nutrients; vitamin C and the amino acid lysine.

  • Vitamin C is required to strengthen arteries so that the body does not try to patch arteries with "plaster casts" (atherosclerosis). 

  • Lysine is an Lp(a) binding inhibitor, meaning at sufficient dosage it can reverse the plaster cast build-up (atherosclerotic plaques.) Lp(a) is the sticky form of LDL cholesterol that Pauling/Rath identified as the primary risk factor.

Knowing that lysyl residues are what causes Lp(a) to stick to the wall of the artery and form atherosclerotic plaques, any physical chemist would say at once that to prevent that put the amino acid lysine in the blood to a greater extent than it is normally. – 92-year-old Linus Pauling

Testimonials abound, yet medicine continues to ignore the science and growing evidence. As far as modern medicine is concerned, the material presented here doesn't exist. 

We agree with Pauling that it is indeed miraculous that two harmless nutrients together can treat and cure heart disease. Both substances are essential foods, meaning they are both required for life (in smaller amounts). They are extremely safe in high amounts, neither has a known lethal toxic dosage. 

These "miraculous" dietary supplements are available in every drug store and currently do not require prescriptions from a doctor. Heart patients should be concerned with the correct dosage; exactly how much must be taken and for how long to resolve their chronic scurvy, i.e. their chronic vitamin C deficiency (also known as cardiovascular disease or CVD.)


It would be a miracle if the cure for heart disease already exists. It would be even more miraculous if the therapy that leads to the cure works quickly, (even in advanced disease), is completely non toxic, inexpensive and has other health benefits like strengthening tissue, fighting inflammation and is a powerful anti oxidant.

When your doctor tells you that this theory "hasn't been proven," you should know that it hasn't been studied. Incredibly this outstanding achievement by one or our most outstanding scientists has been ignored.No one has proven that it doesn't work! Or you can be tame, like many people before you, and say nothing to your doctor and let him or her think their treatments somehow worked. -- Owen Fonorow

"I recommend that every person who is at risk of heart disease should take 5 or 6 g of vitamin C and at least 2 g of lysine, although larger amounts may be necessary." - Linus Pauling

Lp(a) and the Lysine Binding Sites

"Many investigators contributed to demonstrating that it is lipoprotein(a) that is deposited in plaques, not merely LDL, but lipoprotein(a), or Lp(a) for short. If you have more than 20 mg/dl in the blood it begins to deposit plaques and causes atherosclerosis. The question then is: What causes Lp(a) to stick to the wall of the artery and form these plaques? 

"Countless biochemists and chemists discovered what in the wall of the artery causes Lp(a) to adhere and form atherosclerotic plaques and ultimately lead to heart disease, strokes, and peripheral arterial disease. The answer is that there is a particular amino acid in a protein in the wall of the artery - lysine - which is one of the twenty amino acids that binds the Lp(a) and causes atherosclerotic plaques to develop. I THINK IT IS A VERY IMPORTANT DISCOVERY" 

"Knowing that lysyl residues are what causes Lp(a) to stick to the wall of the artery and form atherosclerotic plaques, any physical chemist would say at once that to prevent that put the amino acid lysine in the blood to a greater extent than it is normally. You need lysine, it is essential, you have to get about 1 gram a day to keep in protein balance, but we can take lysine, pure lysine, a perfectly non toxic substance as supplements, which puts extra lysine molecules in the blood. They enter into competition with the lysyl residues on the wall of arteries and accordingly count to prevent Lp(a) from being deposited, or even will work to pull it loose and destroy atherosclerotic plaques." 

Dr. Sydney Bush, a noted British optometrist, is the founder of CardioRetinometry, a new medical field that analyzes the future health of the heart. "We are looking into life's secrets," Bush said, "When we look inside the eye - to call it a crystal ball of your future is an understatement." In addition, Bush found that vitamin C can improve that future. With Cardioretinometry, doctors can actually track how much vitamin C diminishes the amount of cholesterol in the blood vessels."



Why Don't Doctors Know?

"The medical establishment refers to bypass surgery as "preventive care" even though studies show that bypass surgery does not extend overall life expectancy. (That's because the newly grafted artery usually starts clogging right away.)" – Dr. ————————————————————————-Stephen Cherniske (DHEA Breakthrough)

Most doctors haven't heard about this because there have been no published studies. (No one goes to jail when a cure for a major disease is not evaluated by science.) Most people rely on their doctors for medical information. The Pauling-therapy for heart disease works quickly. Patients have consistently reported symptom relief in ten days or less, even in advanced disease. The effect is rapid and undeniable, thus the reasons that most people haven't heard about this are not based on science, rather malfeasance.

Then there are the drugs used to lower blood pressure and cholesterol -- another growth industry. These drugs are also called "preventive care" even though there are studies showing that individuals treated with them have increased overall mortality and even though an entire class of blood pressure medications have been shown to increase the risk for heart attack. - Stephen Cherniske (DHEA Breakthrough)

Reversing Heart Disease with a Vitamin

In my clinic, we have a saying, "Heart disease is easier to treat than low-back pain." This treatment, when done correctly, works wonders. Out of all my heart disease patients, I have had only one who did not improve significantly, and that one patient did not use the recommended type of vitamin C. Another patient last year completely reversed her heart disease in 2 months."

"Her MD then told her that "I don't usually get to tell a patient this, but" - she didn't have heart disease any more, there was no need to put stents in, and she should come back in two years. 

"In financial terms, my total income from these 3 reversals of heart disease is $65.00."
