Natural Cures for Heart Disease

Garlic, Ginger

Posted by Diana (Houston, Texas) on 05/17/2011

I wanted to try the formula for unclogging your arteries. The recipe calls for 1 cup of raw ACV, 1 cup of lemon juice, 1 cup of giner juice and 1 cup of garlic juice. DO I JUICE THE GARLIC AND THE GINGER TO GET THE 1 CUP OR CAN I PURCHASE THIS? I WENT TO WHOLE FOODS AND COULDN'T FIND IT. And do I simmer it down to 1 cup or 3 cups? There are 2 different versions.

Yes, you have to juice garlic, ginger and lemons by yourself Diana, and you simmer three cups of this mixture till you get one cup. It turns blue colour during simmering but do not be alarmed, this is reaction of garlic mixed with lemon.. The blue goes away once the mixture cools down. The recipe I use calls for three cups of raw honey that need to be added to the simmered and cooled mixture. I use less honey though.

I am confused here. Do I boil Ginger, garlic and lemon juice, one cup each and reduce to one cup from a Gogol of three cups and after cooling add apple cider vinegar?? Or I need to boil Ginger, garlic, lemon and apple cider fisher a Gogol of four cups to one cup?? Also, how long this mixture be stored in refrigerator??? Another question, regarding the apple cider finance, can I just buy this from super market???

Hi Nawal

This is from the heart disease page:

12/23/2010: Vic from Los Angeles, California replies: "I have tried this recipe earlier last year after my blood pressure was on the borderline. My sister in law passed the recipe to me and made it myself. A good friend of mine brought me along with her for free heart check somewhere in Los angeles. To check if there are plaques in your arteries. I have been taking that mixture for 3 months before I did the heart check and I wasn't sure if it was effective. I am a meat lover person and ate some veggies and fruits and did a little exercise, and I was with another person who had been a vegetarian for more than ten years.. We both have the procedure done and Lo and behold.. Our score was ZERO, meaning that no plaques whatsoever in our arteries and we both are of the same age range.. Mid forties.. So I guess it really works! "

Good luck

Tony, I do not believe that it will work without the apple cider vinegar (ACV) as that is the most important ingredient that clears the arteries. It is very inexpensive, perhaps you can purchase it online.

If you look Apple Cider Vinegar should be available in some store otherwise it will take only 2-3 months and you can easily make it at home. Just extract fresh juice with the juicer machine from any apple you find sweetest and having higher content of juice, fill up clean glass bottles with this juice, tie up clean white cloth on top and let it remain in a dry dark place for 2-3 months remove the upper scum or filter with clean cotton cloth. This Scum you can keep as starter, which will help the next batch to start quickly other wise there is no need of any starter , the spores are there in the atmosphere Your ACV is ready and is better in a sense that it is unprocessed and the commercial variety you get from the stores is processed and may be little less effective. I don't think you can skip this from the formula of 5 items.

BEST OF LUCK, LET THERE BE ARTERIES OPEN

You can look up and find that HAWTHORN is the best remedy that would keep your hearth very healthy. I know because I have always experienced hearth pain on a regularly basis which I found out in the end it was because of to much cholesterol in my system. HAWTHORN supplement can clear pain in a matter of minutes and after several months of taking this supplement I now no longer experience any more hearth pain, I am now very close to 60 years old!

Juicing Carrots and Greens

Posted by Jrebecca (Maiden, NC) on 01/10/2010

After two heart attacks, 3 months apart, my husband and I diligently researched for natural helps to keep arteries clear. He has done a great deal but we feel, after much research and use, that daily either juicing with carrots and one quarter greens of some type or using a top quality green powder drink is vital. There is no doubt in our minds that green food which has not been heated to kill enzymes cleans arteries. Of course he has done and does much more. But if we could only do one thing, it would assuredly be to drink green! It has been 8 years now since those two heart attacks and he is currently on no medications and feels great.

Better But With Side Effects

I have had elevated blood pressure and minor angina this winter. Began taking l-arginine and it greatly helped. However, I also got a sore throat after a couple of weeks. I, then laid off the arginine and the sore throat went away. I started taking arginine with citrulline and again got a sore throat that bloomed into a full cold. I very much like the benefits of the arginine but the side effects are so far a disaster. I have taken l-lysine for a long time. Thanks to anyone who might be able to help.

T: The downside to big doses of Arginine is increased viral activity as well as fuel for mycoplasma infections (for those folks who have M).

This is a good example of how single nutrients have overtly one-sided effects and often fall short of treatment goals.

Standard nutrients for heart health is Hawthorn herb, Magnesium, CoQ10, Carnitine, Ribose or D-Ribose.

I've got a question for Bill of the Philppines ir anyone knowledgeable in the topic. I am reading "No More Heart Disease" by Dr. Louis Ignarro. He has a protocol for getting your own body to produce more Nitric Oxide (NO) and one of the supplements is L-Arginine which he recommends taking 4-6 grams per day. He says it might cause herpes in a very small percentage of people. I'm wondering if L-Arginine is OK to take as I have hepatitis c. ?? Dr. Ignarro won the Novel prise for this information.

Denise: Too much Arginine can cause a deficiency in Lysine. Lysine is the most prominent antiviral amino. So if you would like to try the Arginine, you can purchase Arginine/Lysine caps or tabs to remedy the imbalance.

Have you no luck curing the Hep C ??? There are about 3 different protocols here in alternative country for this disease, surely you could get good results between these.

Also other protocols for heart disease which have good results in most cases.

Denise: It seems only appropriate to treat the Hep-C first... Until cured, then you could try protocols for Heart and Cardiovascular.

With a longstanding undiagnosed Chronic Active Viral Hep I was excited to have experienced some good results w/ BHT, but then I plateau. I then predosed w/ 2oz Colloidal Silver, wait 30 min, take 500mg BHT, wait 30 min take 4 caps Echinacea, all with a very much more profound effect than BHT alone.

It seems likely that the people who are not getting the positive results from BHT alone have some other immune draining condition.

L-Arginine won the Nobel prize in Medicine in 1998, and was found that it directly causes the body to produce nitric oxide... which causes arteries to relax and widen, melt away plaque, and heal the inner lining of the arteries themselves.

Linus Pauling Therapy

Hello, I would like to try doing the Linus Pauling protocol using the Vitamin C powder and L-Lysine powder. I want to try this for both blocked heart arteries and also broken capillaries on my face.

However, how do you measure out the correct amounts of powder? Do you use kitchen scales or measuring spoons or something else? Also, do you take the Vitamin C powder and L-Lysine powder separately or do you mix them together? Thank you.

However, how do you measure out the correct amounts of powder? Do you use kitchen scales or measuring spoons or something else? Also, do you take the Vitamin C powder and L-Lysine powder separately or do you mix them together?"

Jo, there are a couple of ways to do this.

1. Buy pre-made capsules. Some manufacturers make products that already contain the latest nutrient combination for cardiovascular health. You can then follow their dosage recommendations.

2. Buy vitamin C and l-Lycine in powder form. The label on the product will indicate the amount of nutrient per teaspoon or part teaspoon.

Again here you can follow the label instructions.

There are no issues with mixing them and ideally since they work together, you should take them together in proportional amounts throughout the day.

If you google some of Dr. Pauling's research you will find that he discovered that to maximize the effectiveness of the vitamin C you need to split the total dosage throughout the day.

If you want to refer to some of the latest vitamin C information check the following link:

Jo, I had the same problem you have measuring the Vitamin C after reading a Linus Pauling book. Using a kitchen scale didn't work for me because even the very sensitive ones aren't accurate enough. I was already giving up hope as the only small scales you find on Amazon are only sold in the USA. Then we went to Switzerland which is here next door and after asking around and finding nothing we found one in a shop in Basel which wasn't even that expensive. I use it in the kitchen now as well to weigh things like yeast for my bread or salt. You might find something like it in London. It weighs a fraction of a gram and I found it in a normal household applyances shop. Good luck...

I would add proline to the vitamin C and lysine which will help rebuild your blood vessels faster. I use a measuring spoon for measuring all 3 into a glass of water.


Posted by Bill (San Fernando, Luzon, Philippines) on 05/15/2010

On a daily basis I take the Linus Pauling Therapy for heart disease. This therapy is very simple, and this is what I take on a daily basis as a preventative:

2-4 gms Lysine

2-4 gms Vitamin C (Ascorbate form)

Here is the daily Pauling protocol for those actually suffering from heart disease/arteriosclerosis:

6 gms Lysine

6 gms Vitamin C (Ascorbate form)

All these total dosages from above are best split into 2, 3 or 6 doses a day for best effect(the more the merrier!!) since the body clears excess Vitamin C and Lysine fairly quickly from the blood throughout the day.

This is an audio link where Pauling personally describes his own protocol:

This therapy also seems to cure varicose veins as well. See this link.

AT AGE 60 MY HEART WORKS LIKE A BABY

After three angioplastic precedure in a period of long ten years my heart health never improved. At last I was admitted in st. Michael hospital toronto, canada for an immidiate open heart surgery. For six months I was ok but my heart complains started to come back slowly. Chest pain, high blood pressure, heavy feeling after every meal, difficulty walking on stairs etc. I am sure evey heart patient is familier with these symtoms.

In a state of frustration I determined to some research on myself. I tested every possible herb or supplent on my heart health and at last came to a miraculous conclusion. Nowadays I almost claim my heart works like a baby.

In a long period of time after bombardmant of statin and blood pressure pills your heart loses its natural activity. It needs an elignment by proper suppliments to combat three factors at the same time.

Fat and cholesterol reduction, blood pressure control and opening clogged artery. To bring a public awareness of my success story I mentioned a link below please click later.

Its about a miracle molecule Resveratrol, L arginine the ultimate arsenal to reduce blood pressure without any side effect, egg white the only cholesterol free pure protein against its rival carbohydrate to turn fat and triglycerides into body mass, and a cup of green tea all included in a breakfast. I claim is a discovery if you implement it in my ways. Trust me I suffered for long 15 years and I found a positive way to inflict an elignment on my heart one day at a time. And in 10 to 15 days your heart starts working like a baby. please folllow this link, its totaly for public awareness and to reduce your suffering not for any benefit or money.

Following her acupuncturist's suggestion, my mother-in-law has had amazing results following the metabolic cardiology supplement regimen Dr. Stephen Sinatra recommends in his books "The Sinatra Solution" and "Reverse Heart Disease Now."

The basic 4 elements are CoQ-10, Magnesium, D-Ribose and L-Carnitine. After much research I added K2 (completely different from K1--read the Rotterdam study--K2 REVERSES calcification) to the regimen. Result was that 4 months after being diagnosed with inoperable clogged artery (due to location) and severe heart valve calcification (warfarin promotes calcification--they do not tell you this! ), Drs. at the Mayo Clinic said there was minimal valve calcification and no coronary artery disease! Please be aware that the anti-cholesterol meds suck the CoQ-10 out of you.

We are now adding daily fresh organic veggie juice to all our diets as well! Her energy continues to improve, and the Dr. Continues to lower her warfarin prescription!

Earth Clinic has been a godsend to us, so I wanted to share and return the favor!

CAVEAT regarding Vitamin K2 (ML7).

I ran into someone who had PAD. They told me that they had taken K2 for over 200 days. I told him that I thought K2 contributed to his Peripheral Artery Disease.

When it comes to heart disease, the focus should be on blood flow and cleaning out the plaque. This need to be treated before calcium in arteries. Calcium in arteries is a secondary concern when dealing with heart disease and should be put off until enough plaque in the arteries is removed.

K2 and fibrinolytic enzymes (FE) nattokinase etc can clash since K2 is a blood coagulant and FE a blood anticoagulant. FE's will remain in blood stream for 3 to 8 hour maximum so they have inherent limitation. K2 (ML7) builds up to 100% in 4 days so I think unhealthy situation can develop where one could get too much. As an asidem the less desirable form ML4 remains in blood for 5 hours.

I would be very careful about using K2 (ML7) blindly. Clean your arteries of plaque first then just do short term cleansing with K2 every 6-12 months or spread out the dosing or do it gently ... you have to experiment with it. what is good for one person may be unhealthy for another.

K2 (ML7) is a boon for health but it should be used wisely.

Probiotics

Posted by P. Raghavan (Virudhunagar, Tn, India) on 02/20/2016
5 out of 5 stars

I read many research papers on the use of probiotics for the treatment of Cardiovascular Disease. From these papers, one can come to a conclusion that the following five probiotics in our digestive system mostly determine the bad cholesterol (LDL) level, triglycerides (TG) level and good cholesterol (HDL) level in our blood. They are:

1) Tier I (critical) - B. Longum

2) Tier II ( useful) - L. Plantarum, L. Reuteri, L. Achidophilus and L. Fermentum.

If these five probiotics are in the correct normal levels in our digestive system, we will not get cardiovascular disease. In this, B. longum plays a critical and important role. If some of these five probiotics are well below normal levels, one may get cardiovascular disease and the bad cholesterol, triglycerides, and / or good cholesterol may go to abnormal levels. Also, plaque will start depositing in the arteries.

Milk Kefir contains all these five probiotics. For treating cardiovascular disease, one can take one half cup of home made milk Kefir in the morning on empty stomach for 3 months. To get better results, one can also take B. Longum rich foods or tonic in the evening as follows:

1) 15 cc of Ayurvedic fermented tonic - Hridhayasanthi. or

2) one fourth cup of fermented cabbage.

After this probiotic treatment, bad cholesterol, triglycerides, and good cholesterol will come to correct required levels and plaque in the arteries will start dissolving.

After three months period, one can continue this treatment 2 or 3 days per week until the plaque in the arteries is sufficiently dissolved. This treatment is working very well for me. Others can try this treatment and report the results.

Best wishes, P. Raghavan.


Probiotics and Alkalizing Green Drink

Posted by P. Raghavan (Virudhunagar, Tn, India) on 03/16/2017

Probiotic Capsules and Alkalizing Green Drink For Heart Disease.

Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) is usually caused by a build-up of fatty deposits on the walls of the arteries around the heart (coronary arteries). It is caused by high level of bad cholesterol (LDL) and triglycerides in the blood. One of the main reasons for high level of bad cholesterol and triglycerides is the probiotic imbalance in the digestive system. Probiotic imbalance in the digestive system is caused by:

1) Antibiotic / Steroid treatment

2) Stress

3) high fat diet

4) Sedentary life style

5) Smoking

6) Alcohol

7) Refined sugar, etc.

The probiotic strains most often mentioned in the research papers for high level of bad cholesterol (LDL) and triglycerides in the blood are the probiotic deficiencies of :

1) Tier I (Critical ) = B. longum, L. Plantarum and L. Reuteri.

2) Tier II ( Useful) = L. Fermentum, L. Casei and L. Achidophilus.

There are multi-strain probiotic capsules containing the above six strains ( including other probiotic strains) available online. One such probiotic capsules in Amazon.com is :

ULTRA-30 Probiotics - 18 strains - 60 capsule.

It cost about US Dollar 28.

One can follow the following protocal for the treatment of coronary heart heart disease:

1) Take one probiotic capsules containing the six probiotic strains in the morning 30 minutes before breakfast for 60 days.

2) If there are damaged cells in the heart (due to heart attach), coronary arteries ( due to fatty deposits ), and other parts of the body, take alkalizing green drink 30 minutes before dinner for 60 days.

It has to be prepared by taking chlorophyll-rich foods like spinach, cilantro, parsley, wheatgrass, etc. and add half cup of water. Extract green juice and then add 2 teaspoon of Apple cider vinegar, lemon juice from one lemon and pinch of sea salt. Apple cider vinegar and lemon juice will keep the body alkaline. Chlorophyll will repair the damaged cells under alkaline cellular environment.

After 60 days, if the bad cholesterol and triglycerides return to normal levels, you are cured. But one has to follow the protocol two days in a week for maintenance. Once the bad cholesterol and triglycerides returned to normal levels, the fatty deposits in the coronary arteries may start to dissolve.

If there is no improvement in the levels of bad cholesterol and triglycerides after 60 days, the cause of coronary heart disease is other than probiotic imbalance. It may be due to:

1) Enzyme deficiency

2) Coenzyme deficiency,

3) Genetics, etc.

Re: Probiotics and Alkalizing Green Drink for Heart Disease.

There are a number of articles available in the net on the effects of different probiotic strains on lipid profile. There is an article available in the net titled " Effects of Probiotics on Lipid Profile: A Review " by Aziz Homauouni, et al. This article summarizes various animal and human studies using different strains on lipid profile. If one analyzes the summary, one can come to the conclusion that effective probiotic strain that can reduce total cholesterol, bad cholesterol (LDL) and triglycerides is : B. Longum. There are two other probiotic strains namely L. Reuteri and L. Plantarum and these two probiotic strains can reduce total cholesterol and bad cholesterol.

According to a research paper titled " The Hypocholesterolaemic Effects of Milk Yogurt and Soy-yogurt containing Bifidobacteria in rats fed on Cholesterol-enriched diet " by Abd Ed-gawad, et al. According to this paper, forty eight hypocholesterolaemic rats were used in the study. Twenty four rats were given ordinary yogurt (control group) and the remaining 24 rats were given ordinary yogurt + B. Longum for 35 days. The rats which were fed by B. Longum showed the following results at the end of 35 days:

1) Total Cholesterol reduction = 50.3 %.

2) Triglycerides reduction = 51.2 %.

3) Bad Cholesterol reduction = 56.3 %.

There is another research paper titled " Effects of milk products fermented by B. Longum on blood lipids in rats and healthy adult male volunteers " by Xiao, et al. This study uses 32 male volunteers with serum cholesterol from 220 to 280. The study duration was 4 week. At the end of 4 th week, there was a considerable reduction of total cholesterol, triglycerides and bad cholesterol for the male volunteers who took B. Longum and also their initial total cholesterol levels in the range of 240 to 280. Also, for the volunteers who took B. Longum, there was an increase of 14.5 % of good cholesterol (HDL).

One way B. Longum reduces bad cholesterol and triglycerides is as follows: B. Longum produces Bile Salt Hydrolases (BSH) enzymes. These enzymes will convert bile salt into amino acids and cholic acids. Cholic acids are not soluble in water and they are excreted. Amino acids acids are reabsorbed into intestinal track. Since the production of cholesterol is reduced by the BSH enzyme activity, serum cholesterol will also reduce. Because of this, bad cholesterol and triglycerides levels will come down. Once the bad cholesterol and triglycerides return to normal levels, fatty deposits in the coronary arteries will slowly dissolve.

According to an article titled " Daily doses of a new probiotic reduces 'bad' and total cholesterol by JO, 127 adult patients with high cholesterol participated in a study. They took 200 mg of L. Reuteri per day for 9 weeks. At the end of 9 weeks, the following are the results:

1) Total cholesterol reduction = 9.1 %.

2) Bad cholesterol reduction = 11.6 %.

According to an article titled "Cholesterol - lowering efficacy of L. Plantarum in hypercholesterolaemic adults " by Fuentes, et al, 60 volunteers participated in the study for 12 weeks. Those volunteers who took L. Plantarum and also their initial total cholesterol levels between 251 and 300 showed the following results :

1) Total cholesterol reduction = 17.4 %.

2) Bad cholesterol reduction = 17.6 %.

If one wants to control only bad cholesterol and triglycerides levels, there is no need to take alkalizing green drink. Take one multi strain probiotic capsule 30 minute before breakfast for 60 days and see the results after 60 days.

This thread is based on my understanding of various articles on this subject in the net. Any correction or additions will be appreciated.

Best Wishes

P. Raghavan.
