When you are dealing with high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease or palpitations, the fear of heart attack or stroke looms large in your mind. If you have already had a life-threatening event you want to make sure that you are doing everything in your power to lower your risk of it happening again.
These challenges often act as wake up calls that it is time to turn over a new leaf.
The standard American diet combined with genetic predisposition and lack of exercise are the primary causes of heart diseases. However, many times, endocrine imbalances such as thyroid issues as well as adrenal excess and deficiency are overlooked. Male and female hormone imbalances can limit your body’s ability to breakdown cholesterol. While stress and drug side effects can play a role in arrhythmia, angina and palpitations.
In some cases pharmaceutical drug interventions are truly life saving but often become a lifelong prescription. They may artificially lower your heart rate or block your bodies ability to produce cholesterol but they don’t address the cause of these symptoms and come with side effects like fatigue and muscle weakness. Mainstream medical doctors receive little training in diet and lifestyle so their advice is often limited in this critical area.
