- Have you ever felt worried about the state of your heart health?
- Do you know of anyone who suffers from high blood pressure?
- Have you ever been told to watch your cholesterol levels?
Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) is a serious threat to anyone’s health because it takes out 1 in 10 people yearly, in Australia.
In 2022 alone, it accounted for 17,500 deaths.
We have all heard stories of a friend or family member who had received the ‘all clear’ from the cardiologist the week before, only to die from a heart attack not long after.
That’s why it’s essential to discuss what we can do to prevent ourselves from becoming part of these statistics.
One major factor often linked to CHD is cholesterol, and it’s no surprise that cholesterol-lowering drugs like statins are widely prescribed.
But, here’s a concern – these drugs can burden our livers, hindering their normal functions, and this creates stress on the kidneys, because they are also a filtering system.
Our kidneys support our heart health!
Our liver is crucial for processing metabolic waste and maintaining our overall health.
Did you know that we are exposed to as many toxins daily as our grandparents were in their entire lifetime?
If you’re on cholesterol-lowering drugs, your liver function should be monitored regularly due to their potential negative effects.
Additionally, there’s a connection between motor neuron disease and statin drugs that may shock you.
So, it’s crucial to explore alternative ways to manage cholesterol and prevent CHD.
Let’s talk about the role of cholesterol in our bodies.
Cholesterol is essential, especially in our arteries.
When we inflame the inside of an artery, cholesterol acts like a “smooth patch” to restore the smooth flow of blood.
However, persistent inflammation can lead to artery blockage, just like firemen blocking a road.
So, how can we prevent this inflammation?
It starts with our diet.
Four primary food groups contribute significantly to inflammation: sugars, high-starch carbohydrates, fruit sugars, and polyunsaturated oils, especially hydrogenated trans fats like margarines.
Let me share a success story.
Philip, who used to suffer from forgetfulness and aches and pains, was put on statin drugs for high cholesterol.
We recommended a natural approach, including eggs and bacon for breakfast instead of cereals and bread.
The results were remarkable – controlled cholesterol levels, no more statin drugs (with the nod of approval from his GP), and improved physical abilities.
It’s essential to realize that our bodies convert excess sugar into cholesterol/fat.
By reducing sugar and high-starch carbs, we can promote a ketogenic lifestyle, where 50% of the diet comprises healthy fats and oils.
But, it’s not just about what we eat; it’s also about supporting our liver and bile flow.
We recommend a supplement called Beetflow, which helps dilate biliary ducts for better bile flow, aiding digestion and energy production.
Beetflow contains taurine and nitric acid from red beets, which can improve blood vessel dilation.
Magnesium-rich foods relax muscle layers in blood vessels, allowing better blood flow.
However, these days all our foods are magnesium deficient so supplementing with a high quality magnesium is paramount.
To control CHD symptoms, it’s essential to keep your blood thin.
Contrary to the name, “blood thinners” don’t actually thin blood; they prevent clotting.
Drinking enough water and maintaining proper protein digestion are key factors in keeping your blood flowing freely.
And, don’t forget systemic enzymes like serrapeptase, which can help clean up arterial plaque and promote heart health.
Lastly, consider chelation therapy to maintain a healthy circulatory system, particularly your coronary arteries.
To recap, here are some key takeaways:
- Consider booking in for a Complete Health Analysis/Biomedx session.
- Stay well-hydrated with 1 liter of water for every 30 kg of body weight.
- Consume 1/4 teaspoon of Himalayan salt for every liter of water.
- Increase magnesium intake through food and Epsom salt baths.
- Supplement with magnesium
- Embrace a ketogenic lifestyle with healthy fats.
- Take Beetflow for bile flow and blood vessel health.
- Use enzyme supplements for better digestion and plaque management.
- Support protein digestion with Betaine HCL.
- Consider chelation therapy with EDTA for a healthy circulatory system.
Remember, prevention is the best medicine.
By making these lifestyle changes and taking care of your heart, you can significantly reduce your risk of coronary heart disease.
