All, however, was not well in his world. In 1991, plagued by continuing chest pains, a 61-year-old Pax Beale submitted to a quintuple heart bypass procedure. This didn't completely solve the problem and two weeks later he needed further emergency heart surgery. The usual short hospital stay for bypass surgery turned in a 3-week medical ordeal. Despite his best attempts to rehabilitate his heart through specially-designed exercises, two years later his heart was only able to function at 25% of maximum capacity -- Pax was a heart cripple. Not willing to give up, loving a challenge, he researched nutritional supplements and medicines that might help. As a result, he created and patented a nutritional supplement (creatine pyruvate) designed to build heart muscle. That supplement, plus a special protein powder and a unique exercise routine designed to strengthen the heart, in addition to his philosophy of total commitment, worked. Two years after being diagnosed as a heart cripple, his doctor, after extensive tests, declared that Pax had no signs of heart disease and took him off all his medications. With his heart disease completely reversed, Pax went back to bodybuilding! He became a National BodyBuilding Champion again at age 65!
