Heart Disease is the Biggest Deal
The Bad News:Did you know that Heart Disease...
- Is the number 1 cause of deaths globally.
- Kills 1 in 4 people in the US -every 36 seconds.
- Significantly contributes to someone in he U.S having a stroke every 40 seconds.
The Good News:
- Heart Disease is 85% preventable.
- Many of the contributing conditions that lead to death and stroke are in fact reversible.
It's true - armed with a little knowledge, lifestyle changes, and the right supplementation, heart disease doesn't have to be a death sentence, in fact even if you have already suffered a heart attack - in most cases it is still possible to reverse the effects of heart disease.
There is no single solution to a healthy cardiovascular system. You need to be aware of and understand all the interdependencies.
Most of us think of the 'heart' when we hear of 'heart attacks' and the brain for 'strokes'. But, if you have a heart attack or a stroke, it is not generally your heart or brain that has directly caused it. It is usually due to those organs being starved for blood and oxygen due to a blockage within your network of arteries, veins and capillaries. Calcification of heart valves can cause a similar condition.
So, what can you do to help reduce the risk of a cardio 'event'?
The Four Steps to a Healthy Heart:
Prevent plaque build-up in your network of arteries, veins and capillaries. This includes calcification which is essentially 'hardening of the arteries'.
Try making the inside walls of your arteries 'slippery' to help the blood flow easier and thus less likely to cause a blockage.
Dilate the blood vessels also to help the flow of blood throughout the system.
Which is an obvious one, quit smoking, eat well (no processed foods) and have reasonable levels of exercise.
Note: Our founder Warren Matthews found he had a calcified aortic valve and had to have it replaced. You can watch the video about his experience by [clicking here].
