I read this book already converted to vitamin C and as an 8 year survivor of a bypass operation without statins. My hope was that someone would finally pay tribute to Linus Pauling and I am pleased to say I was not disappointed. Linus Pauling left a message for humanity that was once suppressed and Owen has done humanity an equal service by helping to spread the message about vitamin C through his website and now with his first book. He takes no personal credit for his work and presents it with the help of Sally Jewell in a very readable and humble way giving full credit to the various contributers to the overall story.
If you are seeking solutions to a heart problem or just looking for a way to extend your life in a healthy way then you will find the answers in this book.I will buy an extra copy to give to my cardiologist for xmas because he doesn't make much money out of me now.
Well done Owen and I look forward to your next book.
Well worth the low price.

Hi,

So glad to find this book..more info on the site as well paulingtherapy. Thank you Owen for writing this!

I saw Linus Pauling on tv in the 80's when i was trying to get off hayfever pills... 1 tsp ascorbic acid powder into quarter tsp of baking soda - makes a fizzy drink that give you about 4 g of C - it worked! too bad i moved away from the terrible hay fever zone and didn't keep taking it. You can catch him on youtube saying that all cardiovascular disease is basically subclinical scurvy. Actually i would have to say if you are dragging yourself around.. this may be just what you need.

I have found this book wonderful for getting me off the drugs that all gave me dreadful side effects. This book gives you all the info re how the influential the big pharma companies are, and what you really can do for yourself to make yourself better. It's your life, your body. Remember the drugs don't heal you. Vitamin C does. It's non toxic and helps with wound healing, building collagen (kiss those wrinkles goodbye!), building up white blood cells etc etc.

When people asked why i took Vitamin C i used to say, it feels like it turns on the electricity in the body. If i had known then what i know now, i would have kept up my 5g a day religiously.. When i got put on all sorts of weird heart meds, i realized, hey these meds really do screw up the electricity in the body - the heart regulates it (like regulating the energy flow through your bod, don't know how else to describe it.. your well being). The Vitamin C protocol in this book will get you back on the road to recovery in no time.

The testimonials in this book alone are worth the price. You may find a description of your situation in there. Well worth reading and following the protocol. Amazing stuff. It's working for me! thank you Linus wherever you are!

This "vitamin C isn't proven" line is being used as ammunition against vitamin therapy of all kinds. However, we must ask, "Whose proof?" The standards for proof of pharmaceutical drugs are certainly different from those used by the medical establishment when talking about vitamins. Drugs are dangerous, and are often given on the slightest evidence of benefit, without properly evaluating the risk/benefit ratio.

Even if it were true that drugs go through rigerous and honest evidence-based selection processes before hitting the market (and I mean hitting literally), the same strictness should not be applied to vitamins, which are safely used even when we're not sure of their utility. We can certainly try them just because "it makes sense", "it helped my aunt", or "I saw a study that said". Moreover, there is so much evidence that vitamin therapy, and other supplements, are safe and effective, that this should be the primary form of medicine.

In particular, in "Practicing Medicine Without a License", Owen Fonorow brings enough evidence that vitamin C deficiency - scurvy - is the cause of heart disease, that one stands dumbfounded before the ignorance covering the medical world. This evidence has existed for at least 50 years. Owen gathers the evidence from many sources, and puts it in a logical pattern which leaves little room for doubt. In addition, the personal accounts and case evidence - actual people who have been helped - brings home the fact that there is untold suffering, caused by the refusal of those who are practicing medicine WITH a license to open their eyes. When a proper diagnosis is made - one that uncovers the CAUSE of a disease - the treatment is often clear. Such is the case of heart disease, caused by weakening of blood vessels due to vitamin C deficiency.

I can't take statins so I wanted to know more about this therapy. The book gives you all the information you need to start healing yourself. I trust Dr.Pauling much more than the AMA who acts like he never existed. Read a little biography about the man and decide for yourself. Good luck!

Eleven months ago I was diagnosed as having "multiple coronary ischemia" due to atherosclerosis. My cardiologist made an appointment for me go into the hospital for stents or possibly by-pass surgery. But I cancelled the appointment, opting to try alternative methods through study. Since then I've been doing diet, nutritional supplements, and daily exercise, with very considerable success at age 72. No drugs (except "armor thyroid" which I've been taking for years).

Of the many books I've read since my diagnosis, Fonorow's has been one of the most helpful.

The book is basically about vitamin C and Linus Pauling's approach to curing cardiovascular disease. Owen begins with a fairly comprehensive description of vitamin C – more than "just a vitamin." Vitamin C is an anti-oxidant, acts like a hormone to offset stress, is a detoxifier, is necessary for collagen production for connective tissues, acts as a safe statin to reduce high cholesterol levels, in high amounts is anti-viral, and more.

We humans are among only a very few species of higher animals that do not produce vitamin C (ascorbate) within the body. This fact is significant and is emphasized. Owen explains how it is that the build-up of plaque in the arteries is fundamentally due to localized scurvy – vitamin C deficiency.

For decades doctors have been blaming LDL ("bad cholesterol") for the coronary blockages of plaque. But that is not quite accurate. Cholesterol in general is a necessary material for the body. Even LDL performs a positive function. Owen wrote a very informative chapter titled "The Truth About Cholesterol."

It turns out that plaque is primarily composed of a particular kind of lipid called lipoprotein(a), also known as Lp(a).
