The Natural Approach To Reducing The Risk Of Heart Disease
Are you One of the Millions of Folks that is Suffering from Heart Disease or Even Worse?
Have Already Experienced a Heart Attack?
These days it’s not easy not to be acquainted with someone who is either suffering from heart disease, has had a heart attack or has been told they are at risk for heart disease. It’s truly about as ordinary as meeting someone with brown hair. Unfortunately, the media and even many well-meaning doctors are completely misinformed on how to tackle this growing epidemic. It’s the number one killer in the US and plaguing many other countries as well.
What are We to Do?
The top strategy of attack is to combat the risk factors the best we can. Practice the following 5 tips to get you started on a heart healthy plan:
First, dump the smokes. Yes, smoking has been shown to be one of the biggest risk factors in heart disease, mainly because of all the toxic chemicals added to cigarettes (not that I’m recommending tobacco or anything.)
Second, Walking: walking may seem like not much of a challenge right now, solely start by walking. I have known many folks who have strengthened their heart and reversed serious conditions by getting outside and walking. If you can, locate a scenic route. There’s nothing more soothing than the outdoors. (I highly suggest whistling and singing while you stride. It makes for happy thoughts.)
Third, calm down. By this I mean, don’t stress regarding the stuff you don’t have to. This is actually a very funny statement coming from me who used to stress just about everything! Deadlines, laundry, work, family… you name it, I stressed about. Not until I realized that this would kill me no matter how healthy my food was did I drop the stress and pick up the laughter. Right now as I write this newsletter, I’ve got more things that need to get done at present than are by any means possible.
Forth, do not and I reiterate, do not go on a low-fat diet. Your heart condition may get worse in your attempts. Abandon the bad fats (like hydrogenated oil and the nasty oil in French fries and donuts) and start eating more healthy fats like coconut oil, olive oil, salmon, walnuts and whole organic eggs
Fifth, do not be afraid to eat saturated fat. Published medical reports show that eating saturated fats is not what is causing individuals to get heart disease. It is processed foods, sugars and an overabundance of refined carbohydrates that is making this nation so sick. Even tackling each one of these tips one at a time will get you closer to a healthy heart and a lifetime of good health.
