Cholesterol, Calcium and Lipoprotein Can All be Factors in Poor Heart Health

  • It seems that almost every day I read a new article about how to "aggressively" treat people who are considered high-risk for heart attack.  These bold new programs profess to attack heart disease from every angle or teach you how to start your own "Manhattan Project" to nuke heart disease. &nb...

      You are suffering from a severe Vitamin K deficiency that is resulting in your

    progressive coronary calification. I would suggest you start taking 5 - 10 mg of Vitamin K daily to interrupt the calcification process.

     That's also one very nasty Lipoprotein (a) value(231)!........are you taking niacin and non-flush niacin? (You probably...

      You are suffering from a severe Vitamin K deficiency that is resulting in your

    progressive coronary calification. I would suggest you start taking 5 - 10 mg of Vitamin K daily to interrupt the calcification process.

     That's also one very nasty Lipoprotein (a) value(231)!........are you taking niacin and non-flush niacin? (You probably would benefit from both). In addition, in my patients with elevated Lipoprotein(a), I treat with mega-doses of Vitamin C (10,000 mg/day), L-proline and L-lysine per Linus Pauling's protocol.

     Finally, you are increasing your risk of infection, accident, neulogical disease, cancer and death by "nuking" your LDL down to such a ridiculously low value

    (58) via a statin drug. Obviously that is having no effect on your coronaries and the long term health risks of maintaining that low of an LDL are considerable.

      I hear you on the Vitamin K and even K2 and am about to start a regimen.  I am also on 3g niacin and dosing Vitamin D to 60ng/mL. My next blog will reveal my current regimen in its entirety.  But, I gotta admit I am a little leary of the Pauling/Rath prescription for Lp(a).  I get the lysine binding site argument but just have not...

      I hear you on the Vitamin K and even K2 and am about to start a regimen.  I am also on 3g niacin and dosing Vitamin D to 60ng/mL. My next blog will reveal my current regimen in its entirety.  But, I gotta admit I am a little leary of the Pauling/Rath prescription for Lp(a).  I get the lysine binding site argument but just have not seen compelling data from independent researchers.  Perhaps you could direct me.  God knows I have to get after Lp(a) to beat my heart disease!
