What do you think of first when someone speaks about Heart Disease? Some diseases like acid reflux, alzheimer's or aids connote a pretty clear picture of what problem our body has, but heart disease paints a vague picture. In human beings,"disease" is often used more broadly to refer to any condition that causes extreme pain, dysfunction, distress, social problems.
Lets look at a few types of Heart diseases:
- Coronary artery
- Heart valve
- Congestive heart failure
- Irregular heart rhythm
- Heart muscle disorder
- Dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM)
- Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA)
There are several more, but you get the picture heart disease encompasses many forms. Heart disease is the #1 killer in the U.S. the other two are:
- Depending on who you read the Health Care System or Stroke
So as I like to say no-one will take better care of you than you. We must acknowledge the health care system is overloaded unless you have a lot of money. The HMO allows 4.25 minute per patient and with the pressure doctors have how can we expect even good care. I have had one close family member die at the hands of the medical system which we won a malpractice case.
I personally had two years at the hands of health care with minimal results and I had a doctor tell me that it was no big deal to take out the gallbladder from my wife. I researched the issue and found out it did have a purpose and we refused. The doctor got mad, probably because it was a $4000.00 loss for him. She has been treating this naturally with good results for 1 year now.
So you can see why I am a advocate for independent health. I met good intentioned people in the medical system they are just stuck in a broken overloaded system. They do save lives and I respect the knowledge science has provided.
So lets take that knowledge and understand what we can do for your heart and may you never have to face heart disease. It seems cholesterol and oxidation are two major culprits in arterial breakdown. Baring any genetic or birth defect problem the heart requires two things in the maintenance area, exercise and clean pipes for blood flow. The area of electo-cardio and electrolytes is a whole other game. We will keep it simple, exercises the heart muscle in two ways:
- Some form of cardio
- Sex - Guys I thought you might like this study. Men and Women who average over 200 organisms per year have lower cases of heart issue than under. If you consider cardio, increased blood flow and vascular contraction it makes sense.
For clean pipes there are three top anti-oxidants:
- Vitamin C - 3000 to 5000 mg daily
- Acai, Noni, Mangostein
There are many more I just wanted to give you a sample of the big hitters. There is so much information about this it will make your head spin. Remember, all these good things need to be absorbed to benefit you. Read my article "First step to health" about colon cleansing. You will be wasting your money if you don't absorb what you eat.
If you can take just a little more time for your health each day you can save yourself a lot of headaches and heartaches in the future.
