The Best Ways To Avoid Coronary Artery Disease

September 30, 2008 by admin 

Roughly twenty five percent of all deaths are caused by heart disease caused by thrombosed or ‘furred up’ coronary (heart) arteries, a illness also known as atherosclerosis that is caused by increased blood cholesterol levels. A important component of heart disease is your life style and what foods you eat.

Easygoing activities like following a 7 day detox plan, regular exercise, losing some weight and giving up smoking can have a beneficial effect in improving your chances of heart disease – you may also be interested to try using foot detox bath to help mop up all those toxins flooding round your blood stream.

Warning signs of heart disease

If you get heart disease, you’re at increased risk of developing angina (severe chest pain resulting from your heart not getting adequate oxygen), a heart attack; an arrhythmia (which is an extraordinary heart rate, which will cause shortness of breath, lightheadedness and even death); or heart failure (when the heart is unable to pump fully, leading to breathlessness, tiredness, swelled ankles, and which could eventually reduce your life expectancy).

Coronary Artery Disease can also occur in arterial blood vessels in different areas of the body, such as the brain, kidneys, or legs. This often leads to strokes, kidney failure, or poor blood flow in the legs and even amputation. Other problems of the heart and circulatory system include high blood pressure, heart attacks and varicose veins.

Most heart problems can be warded off, or improved substantially by following some simple steps. To lessen your danger of heart disease, you should follow a healthy diet, don’t eat a lot of salt, learn how to quit smoking, only drink the recommended amount of alcohol, get some exercise regularly, lose excess weight (there’s plenty of quick weight loss diets to help you), and bring down your stress levels.

Green tea is low in caffeine and high in antioxidants, and is thought to help reduce heart and circulatory disease, and is a refreshing addition to a detox diet. Even though the evidence for these benefits is inconclusive, consuming green tea looks to be safe, so it may well be worthwhile trying partnered with other preventative steps.
