Rosalyn Carson-DeWitt, MD wrote a very informative article on one of the major causes of death in our society today – heart disease.

This is imperative information that could help you, or a family member, so please take the time to read it. It has been partitioned into 5 parts for your reading convenience. Here is what she said in her article.

Preventing or treating coronary artery disease may help prevent a heart attack.

* Maintain a healthy weight .

* Begin a safe exercise program with the advice of your doctor.

* If you smoke, quit .

* Eat a healthful diet , one that is low in saturated fat and rich in whole grains, fruits, and vegetables.

* Appropriately treat high blood pressure and/or diabetes .

* Manage stress .

* Ask your doctor about taking a small, daily dose of aspirin. It has been shown to decrease the risk of heart attack.

* Ask your doctor about taking cholesterol-lowering medications.

* Ask your doctor about taking medication to improve heart function or prevent future heart attacks, such as:

o Beta-blockers

o ACE-inhibitors

o Blood thinning medications

Please remember than when you are taking aspirin, certain painkillers (eg, ibuprofen), if taken together with aspirin, may put you at high risk for gastrointestinal bleeding and also diminish the effectiveness of aspirin.

Heart disease is very insidious. It creeps up on you. You don’t always know that you have it. You hear of “perfectly healthy” persons, even youthful athletes and fitness buffs, being suddenly felled by a heart attack or a stroke.

You may not even know that you are afflicted until you get a heart attack, or chronic chest pains (Angina).

As always, prevention is the best solution. A natural plaque dissolver can help you to avoid becoming another victim of heart disease. So fight heart attack by taking action today, while you still can.
