History of Severe Inoperable Coronary
Artery Disease. Told By Doctors in 1996
To "Get Her Affairs In Order"
July 23, 2001
"According to the Doctors the main artery is very bad and they cannot do a bypass. Two years ago the main artery closed and I had a 2nd heart attack with damage this time. My heart was in the process of doing a bypass on the blockage when the heart attack happened. The Doctors said that was what saved my life but I would have to learn to live with angina for the rest of my life. After taking the Tower Heart Technology for 3 weeks, I have more energy and no chest pains. LIFE IS GREAT. I ran out and I want that feeling back. I hate chest pains.
"Now I just need to get & keep enough Heart Technology on hand. I started with 1 Heart Technology jar and then ordered a second one on autoship. I know that it is helping and I was taking 1 heaping tablespoon every 12 hours. I am almost out and have cut down to a tablespoon a day until my next order comes. (I hope it is soon.) I am dealing with angina again since I cut back on the Heart Technology and would like to go back to two glasses a day or maybe 3. I know I can tolerate 2 heaping Tablespoons a day, haven’t tried 3 yet.
Thank you and advice or suggestions are appreciated.
"I woke up this morning with tightness & angina pain in the chest (no fun) This product really does make a difference. Back to the Nitro patches & Nitro pills until I can get on the Heart Technology again. I AM OUT Please send out my next order as soon as possible. Sending 3 jars a month would be fine. Thank you for getting back to me so soon. Yes, you can post this on the testimonials page.

"I am hoping that the angina pain and tightness will go away now that I am on the drink mix again. I was out of the drink mix for almost 10 days and the angina came back very bad. I had to go back to using the nitro patches daily and some days the nitro pills. I did buy and start taking the lysine, Vitamin C, & E twice a day as pills, but I still had to use the nitro patches. The pills helped but did not totally do away with the chest pains, tightness.
"By the way, I called and got the results of the Lp(a) test. I scored a 10 and that was only after being on the Tower Heart Technology for 2 weeks. My Cholesterol is 159 and bad LDL chol is 98. (Doctor is very happy with the results) but they still do not know how to make the angina go totally away. They said I am on as much medicine as they can safely prescribe. I will just have to slow down and live with it. They just don’t know about the Pauling therapy and what good it can do. I am going to take 2 level teaspoons 3 times daily.
Thank you for all your concerns and help.

"I have some really great news to share with you from my appointment with my Heart specialist. He informed my husband and me that my heart is in better shape now than it was 3 1/2 years ago. He told me to keep doing whatever I was doing because it was working. Guess what I had been doing? Using the Tower Heart Technology (Pauling Therapy) product. It REALLY WORKS.
"There was such a great improvement that the doctors who reviewed my file with my specialist were amazed. The damaged main artery that had closed during my 2nd heart attack had opened back up and the doctor said it was no longer damaged and is healthy.
"Let me explain, I had my first heart attack 8 1/2 years ago. I was very lucky I was in the hospital when I started having a massive heart attack. The left main artery had a 90% blockage and decided to close. When they had stabilized me, they performed a Heart catheterization. It must have been serious enough because the next thing I knew I was in an ambulance being transferred to the best Heart hospital in the area. They performed the balloon process and then had to (rotor-rooter) the calcified blockage. Three weeks later scar tissue formed and the blockage came back and I started having terrible chest pains.
"I was brought back in and they ran some more tests and the Doctor informed me that the left artery was so bad that they could not do a bypass. He said we needed a miracle and to start praying, that it was in God’s hands and I needed to get my affairs in order and that I had approximately one year or less to live. I got my miracle. My heart started doing a bypass around the blockage by creating collaterals (tiny veins).
"Three and 1/2 years later on June 5, 1999, I had my 2nd heart attack, but because my heart was in the process of completing the bypass around the left main artery blockage, the Doctor told me that was what had saved my life. I had all these collaterals providing blood to my artery.
"It was at this point in my life that I found the Tower Heart Technology product (based on Linus Pauling’s recommendations). It has made all the difference in the world. After taking the Tower Heart Technology for 3 weeks, I no longer had any chest pains and I also had more energy and I was feeling great.
"Well don’t make the mistake that I made. I was feeling so great and memory of the heart attack and chest pains had vanished. I could do everything I had been able to do before the heart attacks so I stopped using the Heart Technology product. Big Big mistake.
"On 1/24/03 I had my 3rd heart attack. I had been doing really great while I was on the Tower Heart formula and I truly believe that if I had continued to take the Heart Technology I never would have had this 3rd heart attack.
"Since my last heart attack, I have been in and out of the hospital with chest pains, not able to go back to work, tired all the time, taking lots of medicines and wearing Nitro patches 20 hours a day and taking oxygen when needed for the chest pains. The doctors found that I had 2 blockages and I was put on a waiting list for a Medical Stent. THE DOCTORS SAID THAT WAS MY ONLY OPTION. From my research Medical Stents are not the answer. The Pauling Therapy Heart Technology products are.
"Well I am now back on the Tower Heart Technology product it has only taken 3 weeks, the chest pains have stopped, I have energy, I have stopped using the nitro patches and oxygen and I have returned to work 20 hours a week. I am now on a low fat diet and exercising on our treadmill 1 to 2 miles a day and NO CHEST PAINS. This product really works!!!!! and I will never ever stop using it again.
. . . Dr. Linus Pauling’s recommendations/Tower Heart Technology product have saved my life.

"Just a note to let you know that I saw my heart specialist and he said the EKG showed no evidence of any heart damage. Amazing isn’t it!! You were right. I will email you more later, have to leave for work in a few minutes. Life is great.

"How am I doing, is a very good question. According to my heart specialist that I saw 5 days ago, not good. He was ready to put me in the hospital and do another angiogram and put another stent or two in. I refused and he put me on ISOSORBIDE 40MG TAB twice a day plus 0.06 nitro patch every morning to be taken off at bedtime. He said it was a temporary fix and gave me two weeks until he said I would be back in touch agreeing to the stent. I believe that the prescription isosorbide is supposed to dilate all my arteries, veins, etc. to get more blood circulating to my heart and stop the chest pains.
"According to my heart doctor, the medicated stent he put in was the wrong size, but it was the only size he had to use to save my life. That was last July (7 months ago). He was very proud of how well he did with getting it in place. The problem now is that the ends of the stent are putting too much pressure on the artery and one or both ends are trying to close off and the only option we have is to put another stent in at the ends of the small stent. He said I am running out of options of what they can do. Bypass is not an option.
"I am sitting here with my heart racing (pounding), tightness, shoulders and arms aching, nausea, pain in my back, and very shaky waiting for the isosorbide to work. This is basically what I deal with every day. Some days are worse than others; some days I can go to work and other days I am hooked up to oxygen.
"I have been out of the Tower Ascorsine-9 (Pauling therapy) product until a friend stopped by with a jar just before I started this email to you. I immediately mixed two heaping tablespoons of A-9 in a glass of water and I am waiting for it to help. This A-9 jar is 9 months old but I am hoping it might still help. I know how old it is because I had given it to her for her husband, he never tried it. I figure it is not as powerful as it would be new but I know it will help. "It has been about an hour now after taking the A-9, and the shakiness, racing, pounding are gone. Still have a little nausea, tightness and aching in my shoulders, but I am so much better.
"I gave notice & I am [personal data deleted - basically, money is tight]
"I thought I remembered reading that having a medicated stent & taking the Tower products would be a waste of money. I had fought against stents & medicated stents every time my doctor mentioned them and always said NO but my family said yes to save my life. I am very glad to be alive but I need help.
"I know that Tower Heart Technology works but do you think it can still work as well since I now have a medicated stent in? It definitely seems to be helping today with my heart.
"I am going to end and go lay down and rest and hook up the oxygen and see if I can get the rest of the tightness and aching to go away.
Sorry this is so long.

"The A-9 made a difference and helped stop the really bad angina I had this morning. I did end up with diarrhea from the A-9 but it was worth it to stop the pain. I took the isosorbide pill, Nitro patch, oxygen and the A-9 to stop it.
"As far as my history, in January 2003 had 3rd heart attack and we talked and you told me about A-9 & Unique E. After 3 months on these I had an EKG done and it showed Normal.
"I continued with the A-9 and the Unique E until the early part of 2005 and life was very good.
"I had been in contact with Matthew from A. C. Grace who sells the Unique E product. He was interested in my EKG results. Over time he shared with me ideas about healing your complete body by using special herbs & supplements. I believed what we had done for my heart with the A-9 & Unique E was wonderful and I wanted to have my whole system, liver, kidneys, adrenal, lungs, heart & colon as healthy as possible. So I started following a program to heal that he recommended. I was taking about 50 pills a day which did not include my meds. I wanted to get off all my meds and believed it was possible.
"At that point something had to give and I stopped taking the Tower A-9 and Unique E until we finished the program which ended in the summer, 2005.
"I felt really good, had more energy than I knew what to do with. But by then I was totally burned out on taking pills & supplements. And my husband said I had to stop spending so much money on all these supplements and since I was feeling GREAT I did not anticipate a problem.
"Since I had gotten out of the habit of taking A-9 faithfully, I took it hit and miss. YOU would think I would know better. But I really believed that with everything I did up to now that I was in really good shape and my heart was totally healed.
"In March 2006, I started having angina again but this time the A9 didn’t seem to make a difference. My Heart specialist suggested an angiogram procedure and possibly a stent. I said NO. So then he suggested the EECP 35-day program along with Cardio Rehab 3 times a week, which was what I was doing until July 2006 when they put a medicated stent in to save my life.
"I had not been taking the A-9 since it hadn’t seemed to be helping and the EECP staff had asked that I not be taking Vitamin C and supplements during the 35 day program and I was following their & my Doctor’s instructions.
"I have only one stent in and no bypass surgery. I have fought for the last 12 years to not have any surgery or stents put in. Bypass surgery is not an option for me according to my heart specialist. He said he is running out of options for what he can do for me. I think I have heard that one before.
"By the way, I have had lots of dental work done thru the years and 3 or 4 root canals, etc., so I am concerned that they can cause toxicity you warned me about. Last year when I finally had 100% duel coverage I maxed out and had as much as I could done & replaced with the new non toxic products.
"I also have on hand Omega 3-6-9 flaxseed oil and I buy organic flaxseed from the health food store and grind it up and use it on all my green salads & food but I ran out of CoQ10. Sounds like I need to buy some. It was so expensive at our health food store. "All these supplements add up and pretty soon especially with the cost of my heart meds, there is just not enough money to cover it all.
"Where to start. The 2 heaping tablespoons of Tower Ascorsine-9 that I took yesterday really did help to stop the tightness when the prescription Isosorbide pill & nitro patch didn’t seem to be making much of a difference [reducing the pain] until I took the Tower A-9.
"I had been warned by my Heart specialist that the isosorbide pills and nitro patches were only a very temporary fix and very shortly they would not make any difference in stopping the angina. He said I needed an angiogram and one to two more stents put in as soon as possible. I would love to prove him wrong. I made it thru last night and this morning so far with no tightness.
"Okay, let's see how good my memory is and update you. First, I am still doing better than when I first made contact with you. (I was then 47.) At that time I was hurting so bad that I could barely walk from my bed to our living room without needing to sit down and rest & wait for the angina to let up. I would be totally exhausted & hurting & very weak and yes, my heart specialist had told me to get my affairs in order that I had 6 months to a year to live.
"It's been twelve years since he told me that. Luckily I made contact with you and started the Pauling therapy and found out that I didn’t need to hurt any longer, the angina was gone. I felt so much better and went out and got a part-time job to help with all of our bills. "The Tower product worked so well that I believed that I was cured and money was really tight so I stopped taking Heart Technology and about 6 months or so later had another Heart Attack. At that time we spoke and I started on the stronger Tower Ascorsine-(A-9) and added 2000 iu Unique E. About 3 months later my EKGs were normal. "Well, sitting here doing nothing the Angina has returned and is getting bad, I need to go take the Tower A-9 and see if it will help as it did yesterday. I am radiating tightness from my chest into my shoulders & down my arms, also up into my neck and into my back. I feel very weak, and aching all over. I need go lay down. I will continue with this email as soon as I feel better.

"When I saw the Doctor and learned the pain was from inflammation not a blockage I said NO to another stent, there had to be a better alternative. Was I scared, YES but I knew that the [Product Name]® had always stopped the angina before, but didn't understand why it wasn't this time. I knew I need help, and you were there for me. Of course, the answer turned out to be adding a whole lot more vitamin C around the clock plus wearing Nitro patches and taking oxygen and becoming friends with the bathroom. I slowly got better and knew I had made the right decision. If the first medical stent was responsible for what was happening to me, then how would putting in two more help? My Doctor wasn't sure how long the two stents would help, the last one lasted 6 months before I started having problems. It might be just compounding the problem. "Well I made it, I am fine NO NITRO PATCHES, NO NITRO PILLS, NO OXYGEN, I have my life back, I feel great and I don't hurt!!! I truly believe that the Ascorsine 9 product is the reason. I wasn't getting enough in my system and the inflammation flare up due to the medical stent caused my problem. I am so Thankful for all your help. My blood pressure is back to being in normal ranges again. 128/70 to 110/66.
Update June 17, 2008:
"Well I had my Doctor appointment this morning to discuss the results of all the tests my doctor had ordered done. The good news is that everything was in normal ranges... His words were "You have no kidney or liver damage and also NO nerve damage to your eyes or feet which is pretty amazing considering that you have been a diabetic for almost 50 years." He said to keep doing whatever I have been doing because it is working and then he said "WOW". It made me feel good. Blood pressure was 112/60 68 and my heart is behaving again, and I am doing great. "Of course, he did bring up the fact that he wished I would consider taking Cholesterol pills. I asked WHY? since my test results were all very good. He just said that "it is a benefit for all patients to be on Cholesterol pills." I just smiled and said Cholesterol isn't the bad guy, cholesterol didn't cause my last two heart attacks, and I will not take any Cholesterol meds. I don't need them and he didn't argue with me. I truly believe that if I wasn't taking the high-dose Vitamin C in the Tower Laboratories products and the Unique E, I would not have received these great results again. Tower Ascorsine-9 and Unique E are an unbeatable team to good health and every Diabetic and heart patient should be faithfully taking them.
