Cardiovascular Disease

A Unified Theory of The Cause & Treatment

The two-time unshared Nobel Prize recipient Linus Pauling (1901 – 1994) and the German medical doctor Matthias Rath (born 1955) presented in 1989 a new theory of cardiovascular disease.

They hypothesized that heart disease is a manifestation of chronic scurvy, and atherosclerotic plaque is a mechanism evolved to repair or patch blood vessels and arteries damaged by chronic vitamin C deficiency. Plaque deposits found in human aortas are made up of a blood lipid called lipoprotein(a).

The solution Pauling and Rath suggested on this problem were that high dosages of vitamin C and lysine in combination neutralize lipoprotein(a). This may according to the researchers prevent and cure cardiovascular disease. The following is a video with Linus Pauling from 1993. The video has an introduction by Patrick Holford.

The Fundamentals of Magnesium (Lecture)

Image 17This is a presentation by the American physician and naturopathic doctor Carolyn Dean. She is Medical Director of the Nutritional Magnesium Association, and has been at the forefront of health issues for more than 30 years. Dr. Dean is author and coauthor of numerous books, including The Magnesium Miracle. She is a CONEM member.

A great deal of attention has been focused on calcium but not nearly as much on magnesium, yet these minerals work together and need to be balanced for good health. Magnesium, which many call the “miracle mineral” is involved in over 325 known biochemical reactions in the body and is vital for health restoration, maintenance and enhancement. It impacts heart health, bone health, energy production and storage, women’s health, men’s health, athletic performance and stress management.
