Heart Health and CoQ10

Maintaining heart health would be one of the most important factors in keeping you healthy!

There are so many pharmaceutical drugs available to doctors to “help” the health of your heart and just so many of them cause people other problems which means further drug taking.

Marilyn Vine comes from a place of providing information to assist you in making informed decisions with regards to your overall health. Yes, I am aware that there will be times that people will need to resort to these drugs.    All I ask is that you try and maintain your own health as naturally as you can.

Heart Surgeon speaking out

NaturalNews dated 15 October 2015 brings heart health information from Dr Dwight Lundell.  Dr Lundell is a retired heart surgeon and Chief of Staff and Chief of Surgery at Banner Heart Hospital in Mesa, Arizona.   He has made the following statement:


“As a heart surgeon with 25 years experience... today is my day to right the wrong with medical and scientific fact.

I trained for many years with other prominent physicians labeled "opinion makers." Bombarded with scientific literature, continually attending education seminars, we opinion makers insisted heart disease resulted from the simple fact of elevated blood cholesterol. The only accepted therapy was prescribing medications to lower cholesterol and a diet that severely restricted fat intake. The latter of course we insisted would lower cholesterol and heart disease. Deviations from these recommendations were considered heresy and could quite possibly result in malpractice. It Is Not Working!

These recommendations are no longer scientifically or morally defensible.   Source

Is this what really causes it?

Interested in products for heart health?  Please click this link to contact me and ask what I do to retain my cardiovascular health.  I come from a long line of family members who all suffered cardiovascular disease and in fact many of them died from this.   I am in my 78th year in 2020 and have no cardiovascular conditions.

Liver Health and Cholesterol

Dr. Bob DeMaria discusses liver health in this video. Most people don't think about their liver health or how to improve it. Dr. Bob has some warnings about a fatty liver and what you can do to not only improve your liver health, but help maintain healthy cholesterol with just a few simple tips. 

Dr Andreas Moritz

Listen to Dr Andreas Moritz on “Can heart attacks be 'sudden'? In this interview from 2009, Andreas Moritz says no, unless it's from a rare event. But he says most heart attacks are the result of many other health problems that have gone unchecked.”

Does sugar have an impact on your blood pressure?

GreenMedia on 22 December 2014 brings information published in the British Medical Journal OpenHeart which points to sugars, particularly fructose, as a bigger threat to blood pressure and heart disease.   It also speaks about salt and that the research around this is “shaky”.   The article even goes as far as saying that cutting salt may increase your risk of fatal heart disease.


I personally use Himalayan salt which is known to have many health benefiting attributes.

Celtic and Himalayan Salt

GreenMedia on 15 February 2013 brings information on using real salt:


“Unrefined sea salt is healthy. The blood-pressure-raising effect of table salt can be due to its high content of sodium with not enough magnesium to balance it. This has a magnesium-lowering effect that can constrict the arteries and raise blood pressure. Real salt (of various kinds) contains plenty of magnesium and other important minerals, which is why it usually does not affect blood pressure in a negative way.[1]


It is important that you only use Celtic Sea Salt or Himalayan Salt to ensure you are using only the very best.  Click this link to read the full article.

Attached is a wonderful heart testimonial and also a new scientific study which possibly provides some insight into why Bill achieved this remarkable recovery.   Click this link.

Beta Blockers

Please take the time to listen to the interview with Dr Mercola and Andrew Saul of Orthomolecular Medicine.


On 29 January 2014 Dr Mercola advises:


“European doctors may have caused as many as 800,000 deaths in five years by following a guideline to use beta-blockers in non-cardiac surgery patients—a guideline based largely on discredited science

The discredited researcher, who was fired for scientific misconduct in 2011, was also the chairman of the committee that drafted the European treatment guideline”

Dr Mercola advises on 4 August 2014 that the FDA have now reversed their position on aspirin for preventing heart attacks and now believe it could cause more harm than good.   Click the link to learn more.

Saturated Fats

Many years ago I learned about the harm of using margarine.   It is a very toxic product due to the fact that the ingredients used to make margarine are heated to a very high intensity and thus become carcinogenic or suspected carcinogenic.   I changed back to using butter early 1990s and won’t buy all the easy spreads, olive oil type products – the only thing I purchase is butter.    Now read what Dr Mercola has to say about saturated fats.

Dr Mercola on 27 July 2014 provides heart health information on the myth that people who eat more saturated fats do not have more heart attacks than people who eat less.  Click here to read the article and then listen to the YouTube.

Tomatoes versus Statins

Green Media on 24 June 2014 provide information on lycopene an ingredient contained in tomatoes.   The article goes on to say:

“They also noted that the 53% improvement in endothelial function from 7 mg of lycopene was comparable to the effect other studies found with 20 mg of the drug simvastatin in high cholesterol patients.[ii]  But the lycopene was able to effect improvements that went beyond statin therapy in these patients with atherosclerosis.

And of course, lycopene does not have the problems related to statins which have been found to have over 300 adverse health problems.   

Lycopene is found naturally in tomatoes.  It's more potent when it's pureed and cooked.  Its power is also enhanced when cooked or consumed with olive oil, as is common in Mediterranean countries.

Cleansing your arteries

GreenMedia on 6 May 2013 [reposted in May 2014] posted an article on a new study published in the journal Atherosclerosis confirming that pomegranate extract may prevent and/or reverse the primary pathology associated with cardiac mortality.

One of the liquid supplements that I take contains pomegranate fruit concentrate plus many more ingredients which I am sure would assist with your heart health.   Click this heart health link to learn more.

CDC admits salt may be good for you!

I did not need to have the CDC tell me that salt may be good for me – I already knew that!   I have been using Himalayan salt in copious amounts for many years.   Not only do I cook with it and sprinkle it over my meals but we use it in bathwater to help expel toxins from the body. If I get a cramp or have difficulty in sleeping a couple of bits of Himalayan Salt on the tip of the tongue works wonders.  I believe it has to do with all the minerals contained therein.

The Omegas

Dr Mercola on 21 February 2013 brings information on the Omegas.   He goes on to say in this article:

If you want to increase your overall health and energy level and prevent health conditions like heart disease, cancer, depression and Alzheimer's, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, ulcerative colitis, and a host of other diseases, one of the most important strategies at your disposal is to increase your intake of omega-3 fats and reduce your intake of processed omega-6 fats”

L Arginine

L Arginine is an amino acid and is known as an immune booster and its ability to help with cardiovascular health in regulating blood flow and blood clotting.


L Arginine is also known to assist with immune function, liver function, communication among nerve cells and even for sexual arousal.

Dr Robert Atkins in his book Dr Atkins’ Vita-Nutrient Solution tells us that L Arginine is more effective in lowering cholesterol than any other amino acids.

Arginine is a nutritionally essential amino acid required for survival of the embryo, fetal and neonatal growth and is also involved in the maintenance of vascular tone and hemodynamics.  To read more on a study Arginine Metabolism and Nutrition in Growth, Health and Diseaseclick on this heart health link.
