Heart Disease

According to the cholesterol charity, Heart UK, 160,000 people die from heart disease every year in the UK alone… 73,000 of which die from coronary heart disease, 40,000 die from a stroke and 42,000 die prematurely from cardiovascular disease. Looking at these startling numbers one cannot help but ask: Is the mainstream’s approach to preventing heart disease really working?

It doesn’t look like it. Heart disease is a complex collection of different conditions that doesn’t just involve your heart but also the blood vessels of your body. It’s characterised by the build-up of fatty deposits inside arteries – atherosclerosis – and subsequent damage to arteries and the organs they pass through/connect to, such as the brain, heart, kidneys and eyes.

Despite the relentless prescription of drugs like statins for heart disease, which itself could worsen the situation, heart disease can often be prevented by leading a healthy, active lifestyle. Fantastic natural foods for your heart include avocados and the combination of garlic and lemon juice.

The actions of the mainstream medical industry can often be conflicting to other areas of research. For example there has been a great deal of publicity surrounding the ‘dangers’ of cholesterol. Cholesterol is an important component of cell membranes and hormones, produced in large quantities by the body every day. Statins, designed to drastically reduce the levels of cholesterol in your body, can have a knock on detrimental effect.

Have you been conned into taking statin drugs without realising how dangerous there side effects can be? Do you feel healthier now that your cholesterol is at worryingly low levels or have you lost your spark? It is important to understand all sides of the argument and a balanced picture of the disease.

The Daily Health will shed light on all these questions and show you that there are other more effective and safer ways to steer clear from becoming another heart disease statistic.
