No health topic is more important, more full of misinformation, and more complex than this one. This report tackles the four most common conditions associated with “heart disease”: hypertension, stroke, coronary heart disease, and congestive heart failure. The information herein should be useful for all heart problems.
Heart disease is the number one killer in America, and yet it does not induce terror as cancer does. The reason for this is because people are horrified of the cancer treatments, not the disease itself.
Alas, heart health is frequently ignored in lieu of cancer concerns, with breast cancer being an excellent example of this short sightedness. Case in point: For every woman who dies of breast cancer (cancer treatments) 11 more will die from coronary heart disease. About 60% of heart disease deaths happen suddenly in people who had no previous symptoms and normal cholesterol levels. These people simply collapsed unexpectedly.
The real lesson to be learned, as you will see, is everything that we have been taught about heart disease is wrong. If the experts whom we have been listening to were right, then heart disease would not be the #1 failure of modern medicine.
Adhering to a critical holistic principle of alternative medicine, it is important that we never adopt the foolishness of a typical physician, who will obsessively focus on only the organ displaying obvious symptoms. It is wiser to treat the patient instead of an organ, which means correcting problems with both lifestyle and diet. As is the case for practically all other chronic diseases, a heart patient usually brings the disease upon himself with his irresponsible behavior for a period of many years, and only he can get himself out of the mess.
Drugs can suppress symptoms for a while, like they always do, but real change comes only from real changes. Merely masking the symptoms with drugs is the health policy of fools. The time bomb is still ticking, even though the timer has been hidden from view. Heart issues go beyond the physical, and merely physically treating heart conditions ultimately results in the failures that we all see around us in slowly dying friends and relatives. Numerous surveys have shown that asking people about their quality of life and happiness accurately reflects their heart health.
