Heart Disease. How can I reverse this curse?

Ok, so heart disease isn’t really a curse, BUT it is a MAJOR issue here in the U.S. One study says cardiovascular disease affects 65 MILLION people in America. 65 Million! And close to one million Americans have a heart attack each year. It continues to say that 1 of 3 deaths that occurs in the U.S. is cause by cardiovascular disease and one person dies every 39 seconds because of cardiovascular disease. This, my friend, is a MAJOR issue.

But how can we go about reversing this? SURELY there is something we can do that will actually work! Well I am glad that you asked, because there is!

A recent study compared the relationship between heart disease and lifestyle and showed 90% of cardiovascular disease is caused by modifiable diet and lifestyle factors. According to the INTERHEART study, which examined cardiovascular risk factors in 51 countries, 9 out of the 10 strongest risk factors for heart disease are modifiable by changes in diet and lifestyle. Do you see where I am going with this?

While taking action now does not guarantee that you’ll never get heart disease, it does vastly improve your chances of avoiding it or at least delaying it significantly.  Here is how we can reverse this curse called heart disease.

  • Eat a Heart-Healthy Diet:

Avoid diets that emphasize nutrient-poor foods such as whole grains and vegetable oil, and unnecessarily restricts nutrient-dense foods like red meat, animal fat and cholesterol.

Start eating a diet that emphasizes an optimal balance of fats, eliminates highly processed and refined foods, and reduces other food toxins that interfere with nutrient absorption, such as a Paleo diet.

  • Live a Heart-Healthy Lifestyle:

Exercise. Yes I said it, exercise. By exercising it can prevent the development and progression of atherosclerosis, improve lipids, and reduce vascular symptoms in patients that already have heart disease. To keep our bodies happy and healthy, whether you have heart disease or not, we need to exercise. Our bodies just need it.

Go to bed! Sleep deprivation has been associated with weight gain, insulin resistance, increased appetite and caloric intake, overconsumption of highly palatable and rewarding food, decreased energy expenditure and a reduced likelihood of sticking with healthy lifestyle behaviors. In other words, sleep is very important for our bodies.

  • Boost Your Heart-Healthy Nutrients:

In addition to the basic heart-healthy paleo diet that I mentioned above, there are several specific foods/nutrients that have been shown to improve cardiovascular health. Such as: Cold water fatty fish, Monounsaturated fats, Antioxidant-rich foods, and Nuts.

So as you can see, everything we do and eat, affects how well our bodies work. You are what you eat, make your diet clean and unprocessed, exercise and SLEEP!
