Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) - The Real Cause

Ischaemic CVD - Its Real Cause

Contrary to popular opinion,  ischaemic CVD is NOT caused by high blood cholesterol or triglycerides.

CVD involving restricted blood flow is a consequence of:

  • An arterial wall weakened by a long-term, low-level deficiency of vitamin C
  •  . . . Dealing with chronic damage to the wall,
  • . . . by initiating an inflammatory response to save your life, by placing a cholesterol-containing patch over the damage to prevent bleeding out,
  • . . . meant to be a temporary measure to buy you time to fix what is actually causing the problem.

Several culprits can damage the arterial wall

(a) Mechanical / Hemodynamic stress

(b) Oxidant / Antioxidant Imbalance allowing excess damaging reactive oxygen species (ROS) and/or reactive nitrogen species (RNS)

Such Oxidants can be introduced into the body in fried, cured or aged foods, or as trans fats in polyunsaturated oils (created during typical oil processing methods). Also, white blood cells create ROS and RNS in the body when reacting to an adverse factor, such as emotional stress, trauma, infection or toxins. ROS are also produced with high blood sugar levels

(c) Hyperglycemia (high blood sugar).  A result of excessive intake of sugar/fructose/carbohydrate;

(d)  Elevated homocysteine levels.   A consequence of too much meat and/or dairy products;

(e) Overly acid-forming diet

What injures arterial lining?

Insufficient vitamin C weakens your arteries (and other connective tissues)

The body's connective tissues, including the arteries, are constantly undergoing repair and maintenance utilizing the binding protein, collagen, whose production requires large amounts of vitamin C (ascorbate).   Without ascorbate, artery walls will fall into disrepair and form lesions (abnormal tissue), which usually results from disease or trauma.

Facing an ascorbate deficiency, your “clever” body has a “Plan B” to prevent you from dying from internal bleeding if a lesion were to rupture.   A special, “sticky” cholesterol carrier, called Lipoprotein(a), is attracted to a lesion, where together with some other substances, it forms a temporary repair patch, called “plaque”.

In the short-term, this stopgap “plaque making” mechanism is literally a life-saver.  However, if an ascorbate deficiency continues, then the plaque continues to grow, eventually narrowing the arterial throughway and causing high BP and a reduced blood supply (ischemia) to the target organs, with their consequential damage. Worse, if a piece of plaque breaks off and blocks one of the small arteries supplying blood to the heart or brain, we are facing the all-too-familiar heart attack or stroke.

"Beef up" your arteries with vitamin C.    The Rath-Pauling therapy is a simple, inexpensive, nutrient-based therapy to normalize your cholesterol and/or high blood pressure.   It also gently heals your arteries and removes plaque by supplying ingredients to restore arterial wall integrity.

To understand how and why plaque develops in the arteries:


For the truth about why cholesterol and saturated fat are not to blame for CVD:
