I asked Dr. Sircus and Dr. Rowen. They haven‘t answered yet.
But I found several authors quoting Dr. Rowen. They all say (like Dr. Sircus): „Dr Robert Rowen informs...“. Although I didn‘t find an article or trial about it.

Or Dr. David Derry.
I remembered a post by Johnwen (post 38 to this subject). He said: When it comes to lp(a) there seems to be a connection to Thyroid.
And I found a series of articles discussing a link to thyroid hormones. I know, the optimal function of the thyroid gland depends largely on iodine (and on selenium and tyrosine). Certainly a sick thyroid consumes more vitamin C than a healthy one. Like Owen said: „So a guess is that there is still some fire in your body that needs to be put out with even more „water“ (VC)“.
(Yes, I had a thyroid fire in my body. And I think, I put it out with iodine and VC. Perhaps the reason that PT now works)
