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.
I previously cured PAD with high dose nattokinase / serrapeptase.
Lumbrokinase is 30X stronger than nattokinase.
I used doctors best brand of lumbrokinase.
I removed blood clots in my swelling kidney. I used 2 capsules 3Xday for 3 days when swelling subsided. I gradually decreased dosage.
I removed blood clot in my swelling feet/legs. I used 2 capsules 3Xday for 3 days when swelling subsided. I gradually decreased dosage.
This was 3+ years ago.
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!
Ailment: Heart Disease
Remedy: Nattokinase and Serrapeptase
I have post under ailment Peripheral Artery Disease. Please refer to it for more detail. China has done thousands of studies for fibrolytic enzymes that have proven that fibrolytic enzymes protect people against heart attacks and strokes.
I have just learned about the garlic, lemon, ginger cure.
I have been taking nattokinase and serrapeptase for close to a year now to help clean the arteries. I have noticed a difference in my circulation. My feet don't swell like they use to. I don't get chest cramps very often. And I can catch my breath without feeling concerned. I would never get out of breath, just a feeling of not being able to expand my diaphragm at will sometimes.
However, I still have anxiety issues and ringing ears. I also feel tightness in my head as if I have a tight ponytail with no headache. I am terrified of the medical system and try to use natural remedies to self heal. I am 53 and grew up on hamburgers and Doritos. I feel like I need a more aggressive treatment. I don't know if I should stop taking the enzymes if I start the garlic cure. I also don't know if I should do this cure or instead do the Tibetan garlic cure. Any thoughts on this?
I am surprised that no one has mentioned nitric oxide boosters for cardiovascular disease. I have researched alternative medicines for many years and there are a couple of nitric oxide booster products that treat coronary heart disease. The main ingredients include the amino acids Arginine and Citruline and high levels of vitamin D. This product was tested on 30 heart disease patients. All patients ran out of any other options and 60% were on a heart transplant list. ALL got better and went home. You can find videos of the project on the internet. Both patients and those who performed the study were interviewed. The product is now in the physicians reference and a hospital uses the product as a first line of defense.
These boosters are based on a nobel prize linking nitric oxide to cardiovascular health. Viagra uses this same principle and so does nitro glycerine which is used by patients with angina. In fact, erectile disfunction is usually just an early sign of heart disease. If you have heart disease anywhere, you have it everywhere.
I was introduced to it by a friend about 10 years ago and have used it ever since. I am now 69 years old. My dad died from a heart attack at age 59. I used to get a lot of arrythmia's (PAC's, PVC's and some atrial fibrillation) I have had none since I started using these products. I know that this works for me because I was having problems with ED but since using this I have absolutely no problem. The product is great for diabetics and claims to get rid of neuropathy. I have a friend who comfirms this.
It is important to get a decent product. There are now a lot of people trying to sell nitric oxide boosters but I think most are not very good. If the product only has arginine in it, it will not work because citruline is needed to extend the process throughout the day.
Note that arginine can casue some diahrea in the beginning.
And don't forget the trials on Pomegranate juice are very interesting, it actually reverses atherosclerosis, and unblocks blocked up arteries. The science on this one is very good.
SPECIAL PROBIOTICS F0R CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE.
Cardiovascular Disease is caused by a built-up of fatty calcium deposits on the walls of the arteries around the heart (Coronary arteries). There is a video available in the net titled “Vitamin K2: What is it? Can it remove your plaque? “. This video is by Dr. Brewer. According to this video, Vitamin K2 guides calcium in the blood to its final destination: bone and teeth. When there is a deficiency of Vitamin K2 in the body, calcium will deposit in the wrong areas like coronary arteries, lung, kidney, etc. Chemical name for Vitamin K2 is Menaquinones. There is an article available in the net titled “Production of Menaquinones by Lactic Acid Bacteria”. According to this article, probiotic bacterial strain Lactococcus Lactis synthesizes Vitamon K2. This is done in the digestive system from the food we consume. If the count of this probiotic bacteria is very low, the production of Vitamin K2 in the digestive system will be low also. Vitamin K2 deficiency is the main cause of cardiovascular disease.
Regarding cholesterol, there is an article titled “Effects of milk products fermented by B. Longum on blood lipids in rats and healthy adult male volunteers”. According to this article, 32 male volunteers with serum cholesterol from 220 to 280 participated in a study for four week. There was a considerable reduction of total cholesterol, triglycerides and bad cholesterol for the male volunteers who took B. Longum for four week. There is another article titled “Effect of Probiotic Lactobacillus on Lipid Profile”. According to this, there was a significant reduction of bad cholesterol for the people who took L. Plantarum and L. Reuteri. According to another article titled “Effects of Probiotics on Blood Lipid Concentration”, L. Plantarum reduces both triglycerides and bad chlolestrol; L. Achidophilus and B. Lactis reduced bad cholesterol. The following probiotic strains play a role in cardiovascular disease in the order of importance:
1) Lactococcus Lactis 2) B. Longum 3) L. Plantarum 4) L. Reuteri 5) L. Achidophilus and 6) B. Lactis.
Out of this six probiotic strains, Lactococcus Lactis is very important since it is involved in the production of Vitamin K2 which is needed for the calcium metabolism. Since I have cardiovascular disease, I searched in the net for more than one hour to find multi strain probiotics containing Lactococcus Lactis.
I found the following probiotics in alphatical order:
1) CaptainBiotic Probiotic. 2) Digestive Bliss Probiotic. 3) INNATE Vitality Women's probiotic. 4) InnovixLabs Multi Strain Probiotic. 5) NewRhythm Probiotic. 6) Wholesome RAW Probiotic 100 Billion CFU. 7) Terranics Probiotic.
One can do search in the net for any additional probiotics. It is time consuming. Then select a particular probiotic you like most. While selecting probiotics, make sure it contains most of the remaining five probiotic strains. Take one tablet or capsule per day. One can expect good results in about 8 weeks. I am taking one of these probiotics. My calcium blockage is decreasing and I feel great. Only regret I have is that I did not know this treatment earlier. But people who are taking any immune suppressant drug cannot take any probiotics since probiotics will increase immunity level of the body. In my opinion, this is a simple and effective treatment for cardiovascular disease.
I hope the information provided here will be useful.
NATURAL CURES FOR HEART DISEASE.
SPECIAL PROBIOTICS AND BROCCOLLI SPROUTS.
Metabolism is a term that is used to describe all chemical reactions in maintaining the living state of the cells and the organism. Metabolism can be divided into two broad categories as follows:
1) The breakdown of molecules to obtain energy.
2) The synthesis of all compounds needed by the cells (e.g., vitamins, enzymes, etc.)
According to an article from Mayo Clinic titled “Metabolic syndrome – Symptoms and Causes – Mayo Clinic”, metabolic syndrome is cluster of conditions that occur together, increasing your risk of heart diseases, stroke and type2 diabetes. These conditions include increased blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess body fat around the waist, and abnormal cholesterol or triglyceride level”. There are at least three diseases associated with metabolic disorders. They are as follows: cardiovascular disease, stroke due to calcium blockage and type2 diabetes. In USA alone, 48.5 % of people suffer from cardiovascular disease and 9.4 % of people suffer from type 2 diabetes. Stroke kills someone in the US about once every four minutes. A metabolic disorder can happen when abnormal chemical reactions in the body alter the normal metabolic process. The gut microbiota which is a population of microorganisms in the human digestive system has an important part in metabolism. One can prevent, control or reverse metabolic syndrome if proper corrective actions are taken.
1) CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE.
There is a video available in the net titled “Vitamin K2 – What is it? – Does it remove plaque “by Dr. Brewer. This video explains how calcium metabolism problem is the cause of cardiovascular disease since vitamin k2 control calcium metabolism; calcium in our food should reach its final destination bone and teeth. Vitamin K2 deficiency causes calcium to be deposited in the wrong areas such as arteries, lungs, knees, etc. Chemical name for vitamin K2 is menaquinones. There is an article available in the net titled “Production of Menaquinones by Lactic Acid Bacteria”. According to this article, Vitamin K2 is synthesized by probiotic strain ‘ Lactococcus Lactis' from the food we consume . Probiotic strain L. Reuteri synthesizes Vitamins B12 and B9 and increases Vitamin D3 level. Vitamin D3 plays an important role in metabolism. To cure cardiovascular disease, one can consume multi-strain probiotic capsule / tablet containing probiotic strains L. Lactis and L. Reuteri.
One can do search in the net for brands that satisfy the requirement. One can select the brand based on your criteria. This special probiotic tablet / capsule can be taken half an hour before breakfast ( or as directed by the manufacturer) for 60 to 90 days to see good progress. I have cardiovascular disease for about 40 years. But no one told me that it is a metabolic disease. I was prescribed a lot of chemicals to treat this problem. But I made only a small progress. After watching the video by Dr. Brewer mentioned earlier, I realised that I have metabolic disorder. I started taking special probiotic tablet (one per day) containing L. Lactis and L. Reuteri. One can also take 1 to 2 cups of broccoli sprouts per day. Broccoli sprouts can convert damaged cells in the body ( e.g., damaged cells in the arteries and heart muscles) to normal cells. Now, my calcium blockage is reducing; I am making good progress and feel great.
There are two main causes of stroke: a blocked artery (ischemic stroke) or leaking or bursting of a blood vessel (hemorrhagic stroke). But 87 % of stroke are due to a blocked artery. If the blocked artery is due to calcium deposit, probiotic treatment for cardiovascular disease can be used to clear the blockage.
3) TYPE 2 DIABETES.
The human body is home of trillions of bacteria, viruses, fungi and other tiny organisms. They are called microbes. An average healthy adult has about 15 % bad microbes and 85 % good (probiotic) microbes in the digestive system. This can be determined by stool testing. When the gut flora contains too many harmful (bad) microbes and not enough good microbes, an imbalance can occur. This is known as probiotic imbalance or dysbiosis.
There is a video available in the net titled “Type 2 Diabetes may be caused by gut bacteria” from diabetes research centre at The Netherland. According to researchers at that centre, all Type 2 Diabetes have probiotic imbalance in their digestive system. Probiotic imbalance problem can be corrected by Increase the count of probiotic microbes directly by consuming probiotics.
Once the probiotic imbalance problem is corrected, fasting blood sugar level will come to normal level since fasting blood sugar is mostly due to bad microbes in the digestive system. It will take about 2 to 3 months to see improvements.
If a person has more than one medical problem (e.g., cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes), the above treatment will solve both the problems.
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.
CURE FOR CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE – PROBIOTICS – MY EXPERINCE.
A metabolic disorder occurs when the metabolism fails and causes the body to have either too much or too little of the essential substances needed to stay healthy. Metabolic disorder can be determined from stool testing by identifying list of probiotic strains below normal level and list of bad strains that are above normal levels in the stool.
According to Mayo clinic and Cleveland clinic, metabolic syndrome is defined as a collection of risk factors that increase the chance of developing:
1) Cardiovascular disease,
2) Stroke due to blockage and
There are three important articles available in the net regarding metabolic syndrome:
1) Metabolic Syndrome – Cleveland Clinic.
2) Metabolic syndrome – Symptoms and Causes – Mayo Clinic.
3) About Metabolic Syndrome | American Heart Association.
Any disease associated with metabolic disorder can be cured only by following one or more of the following:
1) Consume probiotics with the required probiotic strains to fix the underlying metabolic disorders in the digestive system.
2) Consume fibre-rich foods (e.g., ground flax seed, cinnamon powder, etc.) so that it will help in the multiplication of probiotic microorganisms (microbes) since fibres are food for good microbes.
3) Reduce the consumption of sugar since sugar is the food for bad microbes in the digestive system.
I had a heart bypass surgery in the year 1980. About 10 years back, I started taking probiotics for my cardiovascular disease to reduce blockage in the arteries.
First I started with an ayurvedic fermented tonic called “ Hridayasanthi”.
Then I started taking probiotic Kefir, probiotic yogurt, etc. After taking probiotics, the rate of increase of blockage in my arteries stands at a low level of about 1.5 % per year. But the blockage never decreased.
About 8 months back, I watched a video by Dr. Breuer titled “Vitamin K2 – What is it? – Does it remove plaque“.
After watching that video, I realised that Vitamin K2 production in my digestive system is low and this is the root cause of my cardiovascular disease. Vitamin K2 guides calcium to its final destinations, bones and teeth. But if the production of Vitamin K2 is very low in the digestive system, calcium will deposit in the wrong areas such as arteries, lungs, kidney, knee, etc.
There are a number of articles available in the net regarding Vitamin K2 and probiotic strain related to Vitamin K2. Two such articles are given below:
1) Long-Chain vitamin K2 production in Lactococcus Lactis.
2) Lactococcus Lactis with high vitamin K2.
According to these articles, lactic acid bacteria Lactococcus Lactis can synthesize Vitamin K2 from the food we eat. Therefore, increasing the count of Lactococcus Lactis bacteria in the digestive system will increase vitamin K2 production in the body.
According to an article titled “Vitamin D and cardiovascular Disease”, vitamin D also plays an important role in treating cardiovascular disease. There is another article available in the net titled “Oral supplementation with probiotic L. Reuteri increases circulating 25-hydroxyvitamin D”. This states that L. Reuteri increases serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D by 25.5 % over 9-week intervention in a human trial.
I was looking for multi-strain probiotic capsule / tablet that has probiotic strains Lactococcous Lactis (for vitamin K2) and L. Reuteri (for vitamin D). I searched the net and found 8 brands that contain the required probiotic strains and are listed below in the alphabetical order:
1) CaptainBiotics Probiotic – 19 probiotic strains.
2) Garden of Life RAW Probiotics for Women – 32 probiotic strains.
3) INNATE Vitality women's Probiotic – 17 probiotic strains.
4) InnovixLabs Multi strain Probiotic – 31 probiotic strains.
5) Nature's Secret Digestive Bliss – 18 probiotic strains.
6) NewRhythm Probiotic – 20 probiotic strains.
7) RAW Probiotics 100 Billion CFU – 34 probiotic strains.
8) Terranics Probiotic – 19 probiotic strains.
I selected one of these brands and took one tablet / capsule per day for about 90 days. I also took regular medication along with this probiotic. I also took 2 teaspoons of ground flax seed at night.
Now, blockage in my arteries are reducing and I feel great. Only regret I have is that I did not know about this treatment earlier. In my opinion, it is a simple and effective treatment for cardiovascular disease.
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
3) high fat diet
4) Sedentary life style
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.

AT AGE 60 MY HEART WORKS LIKE A BABY
After three angioplasty procedures in a period of long ten years, my heart health never improved. At last, I was admitted to st. Michael hospital toronto, canada for an immediate open heart surgery. For six months I was ok but my heart complaints started to come back slowly. Chest pain, high blood pressure, heavy feeling after every meal, difficulty walking on stairs etc. I am sure every heart patient is familiar with these symptoms.
In a state of frustration, I determined to do some research on myself. I tested every possible herb or supplement 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 the bombardment of statin and blood pressure pills, your heart loses its natural activity. It needs an alignment by proper supplements to combat three factors at the same time:
Fat and cholesterol reduction, blood pressure control, and opening clogged artery.
It's about a miracle molecule Resveratrol and 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 alignment on my heart one day at a time. And in 10 to 15 days your heart starts working like a baby.
Usually what gets clogged is the arteries, and that includes coronary arteries, retinal arteries, carotids and all, but these are areas most often causing trouble. There is a simple, safe remedy for this. See if you can locate a compounding pharmacist where you live and call asking them if they can prepare an 8 ounce supply of SSKI (potassium iodide). Get it quickly and in the meantime type potassium iodide into your search window and go. When references come up look for the Tahoma Clinic one (on my computer I think it appears about the 3rd or 4th page. Dr. Jonathan Wright's article can be downloaded for free, so read it thoroughly, because the decision on going this route is yours, not mine, but you will have good information in your hands to help you make a wise decision.
Start this SSKI at 4 to 6 drops in unchlorinated water once a day. Since it will take several months to unclog these arteries, be sure to have your doctor follow your thyroid function as there is a slight risk of thyroid problems developing with long term SSKI. The other thing that Dr. Wright recommends to use along with SSKI to declog your arteries, is niacin. More than the amount he recommends will be obtained from B complex 100 daily and will not hurt you. If your problem includes any irregularity of your heart rate, also get a 400 to 500 mgm magnesium supplement and take 1 morning and evening.
When you feel that your problems is much better, drop your SSKI to a maintenance dose of 2 drops in unchlorinated water each day. Don't let anyone talk you into an invasive procedure such as coronary artery bypass or placement of stents until you give the above a chance to work it's wonders.
Keep us posted because it will help other members of the EC family to know what works and what doesn't and help them make wise decisions in their own health care in the future and that is what EC is all about.
In 2002, an angiogram showed 4 blockages in my heart. I took: 250mg Proline b.i.d., 250mg Lysine b.i.d., 8000mg Vitamin C daily, 1200IU Vitamin E daily, 120mg CoQ10 daily, 3 tbsp fish oil daily, Selenium 400mcg daily, along with a full spectrum of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. In 6 months, I could run short distances, and in 18 months, I'm back to normal function. I can pass a stress test.
EC: B.I.D. means 2 times per day.
