Alternative Natural Heart Bypass:

When we have had poor nutrition for many years, we tend to clog up our arteries with plaque. Allopathic doctors will tell you they need to prescribe cholesterol-lowering drugs to prevent heart attack or stroke. The fact is heart drugs often cause heart disease. Bypass surgery will temporarily correct the problems with clogged arteries. Without a life-style change, the arteries will just clog up again.

We Can Modify Our Life Style To Eliminate The Following Causes Of Heart Disorder:

In my opinion, there are a few supplements that can be taken to directly improve the cardiovascular system.

There is a natural way to correct this problem, that was discovered at Harvard and has been around since about 1950. This natural heart bypass is called ECP ( External Counter-Pulsation ). It has been called the natural heart bypass, because it causes the heart to grow new arteries to replace your clogged arteries. This method should be tried first, before opting for heart surgery. This natural heart bypass triggers the spontaneous growth of new arteries and that will give you a greatly improved quality of life. This procedure is done over seven weeks on an out patient basis. Life style change is also necessary, as would be the case with open heart surgery. It has been called the natural heart bypass because it:


Dark Chocolate Is Good For Your Heart.

Just in case you need an excuse to eat chocolate, new research shows that the flavonoids present in dark chocolate may help reduce heart disease. Scottish scientists measured platelet function in volunteers who ate 100 grams of either white chocolate, milk chocolate or dark chocolate. (The clumping of platelets can contribute to the narrowing of arteries.) White chocolate had no effect on platelets, milk chocolate had a mild effect, but dark chocolate reduced one type of platelet clumping by 92 percent. Dark chocolate contains 70 percent cocoa, compared to 25 percent in milk chocolate and 0% in white chocolate.

In another study done at the University of California in San Francisco and published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition, researchers had volunteers eat 46 grams of high-flavonoid dark chocolate or low-flavonoid dark chocolate for two weeks. In those who ate the high-flavonoid chocolate, the arteries were better able to dilate, which would help increase blood flow.

If you're going to indulge your chocolate cravings to improve your heart health, be sure to eat dark chocolate, avoid chocolate that contains hydrogenated oils and be moderate! Too much sugar will outweigh any benefits you might get from the flavonoids.

And by the way, freshly ground and brewed coffee, and red wine are also rich in flavonoids.

Congestive Heart Failure

It occurs when an underlying condition -- such as a viral infection, hypertension, a narrowed heart valve, etc. -- inhibits the heart's ability to pump blood.

Best foods: Brown rice, spinach, oatmeal, legumes (such as beans and peas), potatoes and bananas. They're rich in magnesium and potassium, both of which improve cardiac function.

Warning: These minerals often are depleted by the use of diuretics -- standard drugs for the treatment of heart failure.

Helpful: Eat two daily servings of magnesium- and potassium-rich foods.

Also: Eat four to six small daily meals instead of three big ones. Blood flow to the stomach following big meals increases energy demands on the heart.

Limit total daily sodium intake to less than 2,000 mg daily (a little less than one teaspoon). Excessive salt increases fluid retention and reduces the heart's pumping ability.
