Heart, is one of the most hard working organs in our body or perhaps, THE MOST HARDWORKING ONE. just imagine, if our heart stop pumping for one second? What will happen to us?

Our heart will only get stronger, not weaker. And a lot of time, it is over work. So why is it over work? Well, the answer is pretty simple.

Let's say, all the arteries in our body is like a road. Each road leads to other parts of the body, major organs and etc... And each of this destination requires regular food supply in order to function properly. Now here's the situation, let's say, when the road is clear without any blockage, a red blood cell takes 10 second to reach the Kidney from the Heart. How about along the way, the road has some debris or the road is uneven and this will affect the red blood cell traveling time from the Heart to Kidney. Instead of the usual 10 second, now it may takes 20 second. This is too long for the kidney and the Kidney will malfunction if such situation arises.

So, in order to prevent such situation to happen, the heart will pump harder so that the red blood cell will still take the same amount of time to reach the Kidney from the Heart. After a prolonged period of time, the heart will over work and starts to weaken.

Now, let's take a step back. Didn't I mention about the debris along the road? Yup... If we don't clear the debris on the road, then, there will be more and more and more. If the red blood cell take more than 10 second to reach the Kidney from the Heart, then, it is the same for the red blood cell to take a longer time to reach the Heart from other locations. If it is going to take a longer time, it will affect the heart significantly. Not only that, once the road is choked, blood supply to the heart will be reduced and that is when you get a heart attack.

Understand now? Heart attack is due to clogged arteries and how does the arteries get clogged?

Usually, it is due to

  1. Calcium buildup

  2. Bad Cholesterol

  3. Fats

  4. and others...

How can we resolve it?

  1. Dietary changes

    • Ensure your diet is rich in fiber. Especially soluble fiber because it can remove LDL from the body.

    • Take whole grained food as much as possible. Cut down on rice and take brown rice or whole grain rice.

    • Eats lots of fresh vegetables and fruits

    • Eat deep sea fishes such as Salmon to get good fats. If not, you can get it from flax seed oil.

    • Take lots of food rich in vitamin Bs. Vitamin Bs are required to reduce homocysteine.

    • If your meal does not contain any of the above mentioned food, try not to eat them.

  2. Exercises

    • Do light exercises regularly such as brisk walking or swimming. Do not do vertical exercises as it will strain the heart.

  3. Sleep early

    • This is an important process for the body to rest and do repair.

  4. Supplements

    • Taking supplements are essential because we can never get enough from food. Furthermore, when the body has gone through invasive operation, it needs lots of raw materials to repair and food is never enough. Thus, taking supplement is important.

Whether you have by-pass or stents, points 1 to 4 are applicable.

What supplements to take?

Instructions to take Nutrilite: after breakfast/after lunch/after dinner/before sleep

COQ10: 1/1/1/- This is to improve cell energy production

Lecithin E: 4/4/4/4 Lecithin helps to remove bad fats from the body and vitamin E is a powerful anti-oxidant that will improve blood circulation and thin the blood. If you are taking blood thinning medicines, you may want to reduce the dosage.

Daily Multi-vit: 1/1/-/- Contains all the essential minerals such as potassium that will help to maintain the heart rhythm.

Milk Thistle: -/-/-/2 If the body has a bad lipid profile, it maybe due to Liver problem. Milk Thistle helps to repair the Liver.

Lastly, if you don't have any heart problem, I will encourage you to do a full blood test to check your C Reactive protein, Homocysteine and Cholesterol level. Just remember, cholesterol is not the key ingredients that leads to cardiovascular problem.

  1. you should check out the incredible healing cayenne lends to all things related to your heart, and blood pressure. Its so amazing at regulating blood pressure that if you take a tincture of it while having a heart attack it will stop the attack, or if (god forbid) someone were to get shot, taking the tincture will stop the bleeding, as it equalizes blood pressure, keeping blood from gushing from the wound, and allowing it to clot. Its absolutely amazing. Thought you might be interested.
