Cause And Cure Of Heart Attacks

Updated on September 9, 2015

Cause of Heart Attacks And CVD

The underlying cause of heart attacks and heart disease is atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis is a medical term for hardening of the arteries.

Atheroma is the formation of masses of yellowish fatty and cellular material in the inside walls of the arteries. Sclerosis is the hardening of this stuff, forming plaques. This condition is known as heart disease or cardiovascular disease - CVD.

Thus there is a narrowing and hardening of the arteries, which need to remain flexible to do their job properly. Narrowing arteries can easily become blocked by plaque breaking off or blood clots. If this occurs in arteries supplying blood to your heart, you get a heart attack. If this occurs in arteries supplying blood to the brain, you get a stroke.

I was "lucky" and only had a heart attack, which obviously I survived. Which would you prefer, a heart attack or a stroke? Although my heart attack was incredibly painful it did not leave me paralysed to any degree or affect my brain function as strokes often do.

Incredibly, the cause and cure of heart attacks and cardiovascular disease was known in 1953 (see Willis image further downl this page) but neglected until Linus Pauling and Matthias Rath got together in 1989.

By the end of this page you will know more about the cause and cure of heart attacks than most medical practitioners. This knowledge allowed me to begin to reverse my own heart disease condition within hourse of leaving hospital following my heart attack.

What causes this buildup of plaque in our arteries?

Unlike most animals, human bodies cannot make their own Vitamin C. Vitamin C is needed to produce collagen. Collagen is essential to maintain arteries and veins in good condition (as well as everything else in the body).

Why is inflexibility, wrinkled skin, fragile bones, slow healing, etc. associated with older people? Disappearing collagen. So what do you think is happening inside the body?

Without collagen the body is unable to repair the wear and tear on blood vessels - particularly in the high pressure areas at the pump - the heart. But the body has figured out an emergency solution. The liver produces a sticky substance which patches up the tiny tears in the walls of the arteries. It's called cholesterol.

Cholesterol is probably only meant to be a temporary solution in the absence of sufficient collagen. it's not the best solution because it can build up, cause narrowing and or block our arteries partially or completely.

Cure For Heart Attacks

So, the cure for heart attacks and heart disease? There are many of them. The one I am most familiar with, which worked for me, involves megadoses of Vitamin C to facilitate collagen production, and Lysine to remove the plaque.

There you have it. The cause and cure of heart disease, prevention of heart attacks. Too easy. Too cheap. Can't be patented by Big Pharma. So it continues to be, at best, ignored. At worst, discredited whenever and wherever possible.

Heart Attack Survivor

How do I know all this? Simple. I don't want to suffer another heart attack. I was very fortunate to survive a very bad heart attack - which you can read more about at my other hubpage reversing cardiovascular disease.

So I researched the subject and reversed my own CVD (cardiovascular disease) within a matter of days. Yes, days. Yes, reversed. Yes, cured. And now I pass on the knowledge whenever I can. Some people listen. Most don't, including my GP, my cardiologist and my dad. I hope you will.

WHA - not WHO

Don't take my word for it. Go to the website listed below - World Health Alphabetization - and get the facts. It's all done in pictures. I "borrowed" some of their pictures to put together this hubpage. I hope Dr Rath won't mind!

Certainly the WHA is a reference to WHO - World Health Organization - which, as far as I can tell, is about drugs and illness rather than health. By using pictures (some are on this page) The World Health Alphabetization project is "spelling it out" for the layman.

World Health Alphabetization - Free Heart Attack Information

Meanwhile, despite the best efforts of many, and countless billions or trillions of dollars spent trying to discredit them, nobody has died because of vitamins.

"Too much Vitamin C is bad for you". I'm still hearing that nonsense - even at my local healthfood outlet!

      conradofontanilla - the extra information you provide on the cause and cure of heart disease is received with thanks. I see you've written in great detail about many health related subjects. The advanced understanding you bring is very much appreciated. Keep up the good work!

      There is a new angle on the cause of heart disease. Stress, wear and tear, and free radicals cause the injury that result in a benign tumor called atheroma (Cranton, E. MD. Bypassing Bypass. updated 2nd ed. 1995). Atheroma gathers collagen, elastin, cholesterol and other debris. Calcium comes in later as cementing agent. These are gathered in an apparent attempt at repairing the atheroma as you mentioned. However, this repair job went awry. Vitamin C is a weak chelating agent that binds with and removes elements of plaque in heart disease (Walker, M. M.P.D. The Miracle Healing Power of Chelation Therapy. 1986). Now, EDTA (ethylene-diamine-tetra-acetate) together with some minerals and vitamins is being administered to chelate plaque. So, either with vitamin C or EDTA or both, chelation therapy reverses the plaque of heart disease. Free radicals induce hardening of arteries. Thromboxane, an eicosanoid produced by the enzyme cyclooxygenase acting on arachidonic acid, promotes blood platelet aggregation and constriction of arteries.
