How To Reverse Coronary Heart Disease

Jul 30, 2008
In 1996 scientist Matthias Rath published a study in which an Ultrafast CT was used to scan 55 heart disease patients over the course of a year to measure calcium deposits. In this way the growth of the deposits could be measured. After this period they were given a high dose nutritional supplement containing about 30 different nutrients to take each day for a year. They were scanned at six month and twelve months.

After the first 6 months, growth was slowed a little. But after 12 months there was a considerable drop in the growth of atherosclerotic plaques. Before nutritional intervention the average growth was 44% a year. One year after intervention, growth had essentially stopped. In some patients, deposits reversed and disappeared. This demonstrates that heart disease is reversible.

Supplementation had four objectives. To keep the artery wall stable, to decrease muscle tumors, to neutralise fat molecule stickiness and to proved protection with antioxidants.

Stabilize Artery Walls

Stability of the artery walls are provided by connective tissues such as collagen and elastin. To be produced optimally requires vitamin C and the amino acids lysine and proline. Supplementation of 600mg of the former and 100mg of each of the latter are suggested per day.

Lower muscle cell tumours

In nutritional deficiency states faulty collagen molecules may be formed by arterial muscle cells. It is important not to run short of vitamins C and E to prevent this.

Neutralize stickiness

A variant of LDL cholesterol called lipoprotein (a) is a dangerous fat transport molecule. Sticky protein molecules link up with the LDLs and stick to the artery walls. This accumulates over time. Stickiness and attachment can be prevented and reversed with high doses of nicotinic acid and ascorbic acid.

Antioxidant protection

Free radicals damage lipoproteins in the bloodstream, as well as tissue in the artery walls. A large number of nutrients and food factors have antioxidant activity and are an important part of any supplement programme.

If these four objectives can be realised then there is a good chance of stablizing or even reversing heart disease.
