[Me (Jeff) on Real-Video]
My name is Jeffrey
Fenlason, I am 55 years old and I have Cardiovascular Disease.
I was first diagnosed with Cardiovascular Disease in 1990 at
the VA hospital in Richmond VA. In 1991 I had four arteries bi-passed.
After the operation I was in worse condition than before it,
I had angina daily and took oral nitro almost every day. The
angina lessened after a year and I was able to go days without
the nitro for almost 7 years. In 1998 after moving to North Carolina
I started having chest pains on a regular basis so I again went
on the pills and then on a daily time release Nitro. I had resigned
myself to the fact that there was nothing that would improve
my condition even though I was on several medications to help
relieve my angina.
On June 20, 2001 I had three episodes of sever chest pains and
went to the hospital. They kept me over night and ran the usual
test to determine if I was having a heart attack. (I had been
through this experience many times in the past.) The next day
I went home with all new meds and an appointment for a stress
test the following Tuesday. I was also placed on a Nitro patch
.4 mg an hour that I could only wear for 12 hrs a day. Within
an hour of removing the patch I would again need to take oral
I didn't make it till Tuesday, I was back in the hospital early
Monday morning, I was in constant pain even after several oral
nitro pills. After the first test the doctor told me I was having
a heart attack. I was admitted to the ICU and setup for a heart
cath the next morning. After the cath the doctor told me that
two of my four bi-passes were entirely blocked and that the disease
had progressed to the point that it was inoperable. Also the
third graft was partially blocked and he wanted to do the balloon
angioplasy to try to open it.
I instantly sank into a deep depression. I stayed in the hospital
until Thursday and then returned home with all new meds. Now
I was on 50MG TOPROL XL, 60GR ISOSORBIDE ER, 50MG ALTACE and
40mg of LIPITOR. You can look these up on line, I did Friday
morning and I wasn't impressed with what the doctor considered
treating my condition. While sitting there at the computer, feeling
really defeated, I ask half out load "GOD IS THERE ANOTHER
ANSWER! THIS CAN'T BE HOW I AM SUPPOSED TO SPEND THE REST OF
That is when I did a search for CVD, the first sight I went to
was www.paulingtherapy.com. I called the 1-800 number after reading
everything on the site and left a message. Within a very short
time I received a call from Owen. He explained to me the Linus
Pauling Vitamin C/L-lysine therapy. I started taking the cure
On Monday morning I was to be it Charlotte for the balloon angioplasy,
but I overslept (for the first time in years I will add) and
was awakened by a call from the hospital. I was already an hour
late and they wanted to know if I was going to make it or reschedule.
I told them I would reschedule. Then I went back to sleep (another
thing I hadn't done in years). Again the phone woke me, this
time I was told, if I could make it in less than an hour and
a half they could still do the procedure. I thanked them for
the offer, but told them I would rather reschedule. I was then
told how important it was for me to get this operation done.
I still haven't called to reschedule.
Within two days after this call I felt like a new man. My friends
started saying things like "WOW you look great" or
"Man I haven't seen you this active in months" I had
previously stayed home a lot when my wife went visiting. The
most common words out of my mouth were "I'm tired",
well sense taking Pauling therapy I am not tired all the time.
After only a week I stopped taking the Meds that the doctor had
prescribed when I left the hospital. It has only been 12 days
sense I started and I DO NOT HAVE ANY CHEST PAIN. That alone
should be proof enough for anyone with CVD to start taking vitamins!
Another startling occurrence in the last week, I have had joint
pain in both hips for years and I have tried many treatments
for the pain. I would have trouble just walking around Wal-Mart.
Well for the past 5 or 6 days I have had no pain in either hip
and I am walking quite a bit. And no I am not taking any type
of pain pills.

This is Jeff Fenlason again, and this has been one fantastic
day. I started working on our lawn tractor, it has been out of
service for months with a broken front spindle, at 8:30 this
morning. I got it fixed and started mowing about 10:00. It felt
really good to be out in the yard working, as this is some thing
I haven't been able to do for some time now, hence the broken
tractor sitting for months. Well we have about two acres, one
of which is pasture for the horse. We have an electric fence
around the pasture, which has been turned off because I couldn't
use the push mower to mow the grass from under the wire. In case
you are unfamiliar with electric fencing you need to keep the
grass mowed or it can start a fire in dry weather. Well anyway
as I said this hadn't been done all season and the grass was
above the lower wire. Also the cows in the adjoining pasture
broke through the wire sense it wasn't turned on. After mowing
with the tractor for about an hour I decided to use the push
mower to finish cleaning out the grass. This was three sides
of an acre lot, enough to tire a healthy 55-year-old man, but
I mowed most of it myself. Most people wouldn't think twice about
mowing their yard let alone post it on the Internet, but remember
I couldn't walk to the barn and back less than three weeks ago.
This is really unbelievable for less than a month. I felt so
good that it occurred to me that one or more of my blocked arteries
must have cleared considerably.
I thought I would try to shock my wife a little. I told her I
had something to show her and asked her to sit on the back steps.
She did and I walked across the pasture to where the lawn mowers
were, several hundred feet. I then turned around and jogged back
to where she was sitting. The look on her face was priceless
to say the least. When I got to where she was she said "You
jogging?" and then took my pulse, it was 60 beats a min.
I was a little out of breath but no pain. Who wouldn't be out
of breath jogging across a pasture in NC at noontime in July?
I have a feeling there going to be a lot of unemployed cardiologists.
About 4:00 we took a shower and drove to the lake to go fishing.
I have been several times in the past two and a half weeks. I
am really enjoying the walk into our fishing spot. We returned
home around 9:00 and had a light meal, including catfish. We
spent about an hour sitting outside and talking about how great
it was to be able to do things together again. Then we did what
any healthy married couple does, sorry, I felt this was important
or I wouldn't have mentioned it. As I said what a day.
Remember I had a heart attack just three weeks ago.
THANK GOD FOR LINUS PAULING !!!

Hello again, this is Jeff Fenlason and I have been very busy
sense the last time I posted a message to the page. It has now
been just over 7 weeks sense I started on Tower Technology Heart
Formula. I am in great health, for a man who had a heart attack
less than two months ago. Sense my last posting I have painted
our house, see pictures, it has gone unpainted for nearly 20
years. I did a lot of climbing, scraping and painting. Also we
have had rather hot temptures here in North Carolina this summer.
I would go out each morning and then again in the evening, it
took me almost 2 weeks to finish the job. I didn't have any help;
I scraped and painted every square inch myself. NEVER, NOT ONCE
DID I HAVE ANY CHEST PAIN. My wife worried, as wives often do,
that I was over doing it, but she now agrees with me that my
arterial blockages have cleared at least some. We plan to go
dancing next weekend. Prior to my heart surgery I was an avid
dancer, not an occasional waltz, a rock-n-roll king of the dance
floor. I had won two dance marathons two years in a row which
both lasted over 24 hours. I love to dance and have missed going
to dances. My wife has often remarked that she also missed the
good times we had when we were dancing. Well I will keep you
posted as to how it goes next weekend, wish me luck.
