Artery and Cholesterol Health
Coronary heart disease (CHD), the most common form of cardiovascular disease, is the leading cause of death in America today. Surprisingly, heart disease was relatively rare only a few hundred years ago. In fact, in 1900 heart attacks were almost nonexistent and medical universities even discouraged heart related specialties for graduate students! Most occurred only as the result of an infectious disease (like rheumatic fever) or congenital heart defects. However, in the last century, this once rare condition has steadily risen in frequency to become the leading cause of death in America.
The good news is that there has been some very exciting Nobel Prize winning discoveries in this field. The applications of these discoveries are greatly changing our approach to healing diseases of the arteries and heart. We are learning how to naturally…
• Clear arterial plaque,
• Heal the arteries and,
• Experience healthy cholesterol balance.
Conventional treatment has always assumed that cholesterol is the enemy. So, in order to prevent coronary heart disease, they focus on drugs to reduce cholesterol and in diet changes. Now, researchers are finding out that most cholesterol is not the great evil we once thought it was. We are realizing that high cholesterol levels are not nearly as dangerous if our arteries are healthy in the first place.
Searching for the Causes
What has caused changes in the health of our arteries? Rather than just fighting down high cholesterol, some researchers have starting asking why cholesterol builds up in the first place. We are discovering why arteries become hardened and tears happen. We now know of free radicals, oxidized fats and other irritants that cause artery damage in the first place. Neutralizing homocysteines, in particular, has become a focal point of many clinical studies.
Most important of all, we have begun to take a look at…
How the body would like to heal its arteries
– If it was able to do so!
This has brought us to the very heart (no pun intended) of how to have healthy arteries. Somewhat surprisingly, understanding how the body wants to heal arteries has taken us back to discoveries made decades ago. Some of these discoveries from scientific studies actually received Nobel prizes, but were mostly ignored by the medical and pharmaceutical industries. Now these discoveries are being confirmed once again.
Once the cause of arteriosclerosis is clearly understood, its prevention and cure becomes much easier. As a bonus, we are finding that, if we give the body what it needs, the liver’s production of cholesterol naturally decreases! The nutrients that are needed to help your body effectively repair the cardiovascular system are now known. This is incredibly exciting to us because…
Now there are real natural solutions possible
for people in any stage of heart disease!
Of course, we still encourage people to work with doctors as needed. However, we prefer to allow the body to heal naturally when possible. Now there are powerful natural alternatives for those who wish to avoid or simply reduce prescription drugs when possible.
We provide additional information, some general, some very detailed, in our articles. These articles explain arteries, plaque, and cholesterol. They give you our formulas and a description of the action of each nutrient ingredient – and why we include the nutrient.
The detailed information we provide may not be of interest to everyone, but we provide general articles also. There is some information overlap for the 3 products we provide, but if there is a particular interest you have, you may simply go to one of the categories in the…
