A Simple DIY Therapy that Could Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease

This article from ‘Conscious Life News’ by  , opens up my mind even further, about the mainstream medical approach to cardio vascular diseases being seriously unbalanced towards helping the drug companies get rich, without giving due attention to other alternative processes and products. In the article, linked here, you will read:

A little over a two decades ago, two time Nobel Prize winning chemists Linus Pauling, PhD, and Dr. Mathias Rath, MD, developed a DIY protocol anyone can do to prevent and reverse cardiovascular disease. DIY means do-it-yourself, as in you don’t need to be supervised with its application and it’s probably not expensive.

They realized first that humans generally suffer from insufficient vitamin C since their bodies lack the gene to create it while most other mammals are able to create their own vitamin C. This leads to chronic sub-clinical scurvy, an invitation to other diseases, including heart disease.


Linus Pauling recommended 2 grams of inexpensive amino acid lysine or L-lysine oral supplements daily along with his recommended ascorbic acid levels of 3 grams. If one is at higher risk or has already had serious heart health issues, he recommended doubling those amounts. The total daily dosage can be broken down to half the amount twice daily or one-third the amount three times daily.

It doesn’t get any easier than that. The study and subsequent paper from Linus Pauling and Mathias Rath MD was submitted circa 1990 to the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences USAIt was at first accepted but then rejected and not published.

This was part of the medical mafia’s marginalizing vitamin C preventative and curative efficacy for many diseases that had began in the late 1970s, even to the point of calling Linus Pauling a quack.

I would love to see an official response from the mainstream medical people, other than calling these two gentlemen ‘quacks’.

Now I will answer my own question – According to the ‘Quackwatch’ website, Linus Pauling is to be treated with considerable suspicion. In trying to interpret their criticisms I think it is correct to say three things:

  1. His megadose recommendations (not applying to the above) were not reproducible and his recommendations regarding Vitamin C in the cancer treatment scene were also not substantiated. His vitamin C promotion is linked to company funding.
  2. I have, somewhere before, made rude remarks about Quackwatch, to the effect that if they spent as much energy on checking out the mainstream medical industry as they do in rubbishing alternative medical promoters, they might fill a few encyclopaedic volumes of similar criticisms. Also that they have enormous gall in bringing vested interests into the argument,  a clear example of hypocrisy in the extreme!
  3. In summation, keep reading and make up your own minds. It would seem to be completely harmless to adopt the procedures mentioned in this post. No need to assume it is a miraculous cure. Other actions are almost certainly worth thinking about – excercise, avoid sitting for long periods, eat fruit and vegetables, in particular tomatoes, pomegranate, watermelon, drink water… Check out CLN and the other health sites linked here and many other posts on TGR.
