What to do about the ever prevalent Heart Attack issue… by Dr Holly on NFTS

The physician told my Uncle he had the heart of a 40 year old and days later he died of a heart attack!. That doesn’t make sense. Why!

Let’s understand what is going on in that picture and make sure it doesn’t help you and your loved ones. First of all the heart is a large muscle that has an electrical current that runs through it; 4 valves: 2 that pass blood in and out of the heart into the rest of the body AND 2 between the heart muscle and the lungs. The muscle is also loaded with large and small arteries and veins.

There are a number of issues that can go wrong with the heart itself but there are also a number of issues that can provoke heart issues that have nothing to do with the heart itself. The following is a very brief overview that addresses some of the more common issues. Remember books and books and books have been written on these issues.

Did you know that a healthy adult heart, about the size of your fist; beats 72 times a minute (100,000 times a day!) pumping approximately 1.5 gallons of blood through about 60,000 miles of blood vessels throughout the body 3x a minute

Let’s start with the issues that can occur inside of the heart:

  • The valves can get plugged or deteriorate and not open and or close properly
  • The arteries and veins can get plugged – depending on what is plugging them that can cause:
    1. Hardening of the arteries and veins
    2. Tears in the vessels
    3. Inflammation in the arteries and veins
    4. Note: the arteries have to deal with more pressure and therefore are more susceptible to issues
  • What can plug the arteries and veins?
    1. Heavy metal toxins: Lead, mercury, aluminum, iron, cadmium, arsenic, etc
    2. AGEs and sugars
    3. Free radicals
    4. When it is cholesterol – usually it’s the cholesterol bandaging up bleeds; cholesterol is only a problem when it is oxidized; keep good levels of Vitamin C and glutathione in your system to prevent oxidation
  • High blood pressure
  • Damage to the heart muscle itself – congestive heart failure
    1. Often seen with athletes – the runner’s heart – enlarged heart cells preventing the electrical current from running through the heart and causing heart attacks

So what do we do with these problems?

  • Apples: have flavonoids that are hugely beneficial to the heart
  • Fish: have the omega 3 fatty acids that help keep inflammatory issues under control
  • Garlic: powerful anti-oxidants; provides nutrients for glutathione; lowers bad cholesterols and raises good cholesterols
  • Nuts: help prevent problems with their ability to stimulate cleaning processes
  • Oatmeal: reduces the capacity of unnecessary cholesterol sticking to the arterial walls
  • Pomegranate juice: great source of anti-oxidants
  • Spinach: contains Vit C that prevents cholesterol oxidation
  • Tomatoes: if cooked provides lycopene – a great anti-oxidant
  • Turmeric: anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant protects arteries from damage

 

  • Electrical issues with the heart are identified when we have:
    1. Atrial fibrillation – chaotic impulses
    2. Tachycardia or Supraventricular tachycardia or ventricular tachycardia – fast heart beat
    3. Bradycardia – slow heart beat

And can be caused by issues with the:

  1. sinus node
  2. sympathetic nerve system
  3. vagus nerve system
  4. issues with the electrical relay bundles – that’s when they put in a pacemaker

But issues outside of the heart:

  1. Teeth: Dr Weston Price’s research with the Mayo Clinic back in the 20s and 30s identified over 300 pathogens in the teeth and 39 of them could provoke a heart attack
  2. GIT issues can cause a variety of issues that mimic a heart attack
    1. GERD, ulcers, esophagus muscle spasm, gallbladder attack, pancreatitis to name a few
    2. Probiotics in the gut can either provoke or prevent heart attacks by effecting levels of cholesterol and inflammation
    3. Probiotics can produce chemicals that alter blood pressure
      1. Probiotics need prebiotics for food and transportation and use it to produce compounds we need
    4. Kidney issues: if your kidney is not functioning well and your blood is getting thicker and thicker it can have major issues on your arteries and your heart
      1. Or if your kidneys are producing too much renin which can lead to high blood pressure
        1. Actually a variety of things can happen with the renin angiotensin system – the hormonal system that regulates functions between the heart and the kidneys
      2. Or if the loop of Henley or the urinary tract is blocked
      3. Or if the kidneys have stones that block the flow of blood
    5. Liver issues: it is estimated that 1/3 adults have a fatty liver – usually a form of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease
      1. Liver is responsible for regulating the different types of cholesterols and the different amounts necessary
      2. Fatty livers get inflamed, have scarring or fibrosis, all cause heart issues –
        1. The liver cannot properly prepare toxins to exit the body
        2. The liver does not produce enough anti-oxidants like glutathione and SOD (super oxide dismutase)
  • The liver starts producing inflammatory compounds
  1. Other diseases/disorders/dysfunctions
    1. Inflammatory issues
    2. Diabetes
    3. Obesity
    4. Stress
  2. Nutrient deficiency
    1. Vitamin C – anti-oxidant
    2. Vitamin D – required to absorb calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc and phosphate
    3. Magnesium & other electrolytes – needed for the electrical system in the heart and brain!
  3. Toxic, inflammatory diet
    1. Fast foods – real food, non GMO, cooked in a healthy manner
    2. Processed foods – again real food
      1. Canned foods are high in sodium which causes high blood pressure
    3. Deep fried foods – use proper cooking and preparation to maintain healthy nutrients
    4. Sugar foods: soft drinks may be the absolute worst
    5. Margarine – one compound away from plastic
    6. Table salt -> sea salt or Himalayan salt
  4. Insufficient exercise
    1. The body requires to movement to help keep the blood flow going
      1. Think of a pond that is stagnant – that is not what you want in your body
      2. On the other hand, racing along like a waterfall can be just as detrimental – think of the athletic heart
    2. So, get up and stretch, walk, ride a bike, dance, yoga, paletas, there are a number of exercises that are incredibly beneficial without the detriment

Choose wisely. Live life to the fullest. Be happy.
