From responses to my earlier post about reversing plaque/calcification, it seems there is only a couple of university studies, using rats, where they actually demonstrated a reversal of plaque (using vitamin k2), and a reversal of calcification, using IP6 as a chelating agent.
My cardiologist also told me the only studies he was aware of that showed a reversal of either plaque or calcification were isolated studies using rats. He wasn't much impressed, as, these studies forced rapid plaque buildup and rapid calcification, followed by the reversing agents, and it is probably that the sudden, forced onset of plaque/calcification is different from a case where a person accumulates plaque/calcification over a period of years. He didn't think these studies provided anything conclusive, or even promising.
In answer to some questions on your forum on how I found out that my heart was clear from plaque.:::: I had a Nuclear Stress test late in 2006 that showed my heart in real distress. The pictures that the test recorded, showed that my heart's arteries were nearly completely darkened in by plaque. This means that the arteries were all clogged, i.e., getting very little oxygen. My doctor said that I needed a bypass or a stent and must start on statin drugs immediately. I turned it all down.
Needless to say he was really worried. I was very sick...couldn't walk far or fast, out of breath, blue feet...I felt like I was dying. Sooooo I started taking the Linus Pauling cure that I had been reading about... smile...
I started feeling better within the first week. Each time I went to see my cardiologist he would comment on how well I was doing. My EKG's were even getting better. Then I took another Nuclear Stress test in late 2007, which showed my heart to be clear of plaque.
My doctor drew a picture of before and after for me. My feet went from blue in 2006 to skin color in 2007... My cardiologist said he no longer recommends a bypass or statin drugs. I have new energy...and a new life. A few months later in 2008, I had an echo cardiogram performed which showed my heart had gone back to normal size and that my valves were working perfectly. Previous to 2006 it had been enlarged. And that's the simple truth. My doctor is still amazed. I'm still working on the AFIB. You can put this on your forum... I need to register...
