Update Nov. 28, 2006
1995 first of four heart attacks, quadruple bypass, stent
Operations, five total operations to date. I declined a pacemaker
implant (TEST) in Dec. of 2003.
from 1995 to 2003 numerous heart attacks,
operations, feeling almost hopeless. I had tried numerous things that
my doctors recommended. I became a strict vegan, no: eggs, chicken,
fish, etc. did not smoke, etc. these practices were put into place
immediately after my first heart attack and quadruple bypass in fall of
1995 for a period of over five years.
On the edge of death:
chest pain, no energy, feeling of doom, fall of 2005. I
did not think I would be alive on Christmas or new year of 2005. my
health wasn't good, but I was in a steep decline at about the end of '05.
Rediscovery of vitamin c:
I searched the Internet for anything
would help me stay alive. I was desperate, too sick to work, no health
Pauling protocol. I don't know if I re discovered Pauling
before or after I discovered the vitamin c foundation web site. I
ordered all of Pauling's books at the local library and read them all.
this was about the beginning of 2006, or the end of 2005. many years
ago I remember seeing Pauling on TV. and hearing about his work with
Vitamin c. I also recall the media in general as labeling him in a very
subtle way a "kook". this probably caused me to not read his work back
in those years. I started taking ten grams of vitamin c every day,
spread out five times during the day, about the time i rediscovered
Pauling and read his books on vitamin c. I continued to find everything
I could about vitamin c. I learned on the vitamin c foundation about
other supplements. I also discovered the rich history of vitamin c
research. There were many people I read, including Dr. Rath. I was
soon taking as much vitamin c as I could tolerate, 18 grams, plus I
added some other supplements. Being a very skeptical person I only
started the Pauling protocol with ten grams of c and nothing else.
Currently taking each day, spread out:
vit. C 14 grams (had cut this down once before from 18 to 16)
Lysine 5 grams
Proline 1 gr
Natural E 2000iu
Q10 100 mg
B3 500mg, just recently raised from 250mg
B6 100mg (in the form of a super B complex)
vit. A 24,000iu
Argenine 1 gram
L Carnitine 250mg
Omega 3 2000mg, just added this a week ago.
Sea Salt: Himalayan Pink (to season food)
The above is based on the following:
I was doing very hard physical work for over two
weeks just recently, lots of pain in muscles from head to toe...but NO
CHEST, or HEART PAIN!
Recent blood pressure: 122 over 72, a big surprise and I thought it was
a mistake. I had just had a big dinner with friends a few hours before.
This may have caused the reading to be lower. My "usual" bp is around
135 over 79 and this is continuing to drop, without any bp meds, or any
heart meds in almost a year. I would like to see it 120 over 80. my
resting pulse is still high at 100. (My records indicate a bp of over 147 over 95 while previously on bp and heart drugs)
Weight: I have been of average height and weight all of my life. I am now fifty two years old. Not
until I read Atkins and started eating accordingly did I feel really
good with no hunger between meals or fatigue, like I always used to
experience. The major benefit seems to be a drastic reduction in
hydrogenated oil, etc. found in bakery and prepared food.
Other body changes: my skin has cleared up and looks great, I had a
small amount of acne on my face for most of my life. My joints are
less painful and more flexible. I feel much stronger and better than I
have in over twenty years!
Diet: two eggs for breakfast almost every day with some meat. I
minimize carb's due to reading and understanding the Atkins books. Most of my carb's now
are in the form of fresh green veg. or fruit. I tried his diet and
feel much better. I eat lots of meat, some fresh veggies, and lots of
water. I had given up refined sugar many years before my first heart
attack, but still had enjoyed sweet carbohydrate deserts.
Bad habits: although I no longer eat cookies and other bakery, I still
love pizza and ice cream. I will over do it on carb's on occasion and
feel worse for it. I read labels and try to avoid hydrogenated oil
(Check your pizza label) like the poison it is.
Future: health is great and getting better! I feel physically and
mentally great! I think I’m going to be ok! I have also found an interest in vitamin B 17 and will look into this.
I would count this website (http://www.vitamincfoundation.org
) and the posters
on it, Dr. Levy's new book, other writers (forgive me for not
mentioning them all by name (the list is growing rapidly!), (but Owen
has provided a very good list on this website)and let us not forget Dr.
Linus Pauling who spent the last decades of his life in the study of
and publication of information about vitamin c and it's benefits to
for health and freedom,
individual freedom (richard)
