Our heart is the most complicated organ of our body. This is another reason it affects so many people's health. A high percentage of heart problems are often man - made or by persons themselves, although in all fairness to the sufferer many times unknowingly. For instance, a perfect healthy heart can become ill and be affected through side effects from medication. Such drugs to combat inflammation problems, arthritis pain, back pain, fever, headaches, gout, and pain killers in general can trigger heart attacks and strokes.

Don't believe that drugs will protect you against heart disease. If conventional drug treatment would be so effective, heart disease couldn't be still one of the leading causes of death in the western world today.

The hidden trigger for heart attack!

Many people who die of heart attacks have no high blood pressure, no high cholesterol and no history of heart problems. They get the all clear from the doctor; the tests are positive, and yet some time later they drop dead without any warning sign.

The hidden trigger and risk factor in this case is "blood viscosity" as in high viscosity - thickening of blood, inhibiting blood flow and making your heart work harder. Also, atherosclerosis, more commonly known as hardening of the arteries, can have very serious consequences such as heart attack and stroke. Most of the cures by taking drugs to lower blood pressure are just as deadly as the disease.

Prevention rather than treatment!

You can lower your blood pressure and keep it right where it is normal, completely by combining the right healthy food and the right supplementation without harmful and dangerous drugs or side effects. Only the one who suffered from a heart attack or stroke knows how dramatic such life change is. Prevention rather than treatment of heart disease is the only way to protect your life.

One of the easiest ways to minimize your risk for heart disease or to improve your cardiovascular system is through diet. You can start by avoiding these types of foods: pro-inflammatory foods like trans-fats, processed foods, fried foods, sugar and grains; use less carbohydrates, no artificial sweeteners, no soft drinks or sodas. There are many more but start with these to get the ball rolling.

We become what we eat!

Change what you eat! Your taste buds will adjust to it; you will eventually lose the taste for the food that destroyed your health.

There are a number of healing foods that will boost the healing and efficiency of your cardiovascular system. Most of your diet of fresh whole foods, like organic vegetables and grass-pastured meats and dairy, also beneficial fats such as omega 3, 6, 9 and fermented dairy from grass-pastured animals. Incorporate many naturally fermented foods such as sauerkraut etc. Healthy vegetables and fruits contain special ingredients called flavonoids. Regularly eating a diet rich in flavonoids will improve your hearts ability to resist disease.
Flavonoids have many other benefits; they even can reverse an insufficient supply of oxygenated-blood to the heart. Flavonoids could play a role to increase blood flow by dilating blood vessels and therefore might also be effective in lowering blood pressure.

Studies consistently show that nut-intake has a cholesterol-lowering effect, even in the context of healthy diets. Nuts also have beneficial effects on oxidative stress, inflammation, and vascular reactivity. This means that your circulatory system is able to respond to physiologic and pharmacologic stimuli that needs adjustments of blood flow and changes the diameter in your arteries.
