Two of the most common indications of heart disease are chest pain and myocardial heart attack.
The chest pain felt in heart disease occurs because blocked arteries prevent an adequate supply of oxygen and nutrients from reaching the heart. The main causes of chest pain can be: increased physical effort, emotional stress, exposure to secondhand smoke, or even by certain meals or weather changes. Chest pain, also called angina, is treated medically with nitroglycerin, beta- blockers or calcium entry blockers.
It has been found that lack of vitamin C is an important factor of risk of heart disease. Vitamin C helps to strengthen the artery walls by building up their collagen content.
There are two types of treatment for heart disease:
1.) Conventional treatment, which uses surgery and drugs to treat the symptoms of heart disease but rarely gets to the root cause of the disease;
2.) Alternative treatment, which boosts the body’s healing powers and focuses on removing the cause of the disease rather than on treating its symptoms.
The alternative treatment aim is at containing and reversing the underlying cause of heart disease. Heart disease is easier to prevent than to treat.
Diet and lifestyle changes are perhaps the most important tools in the natural treatment of heart disease. Doctors recommend a diet devoid of animal products (except egg whites and nonfat dairy products) and very low in fats and cholesterol, quitting smoking and using a program of moderate exercise.
Check with your doctor about the treatment and avoidance of heart disease.
