Reverse Heart Disease
with Healing Foods

To reverse heart disease with healing foods is not only possible but is, without doubt, the best treatment you can have as it avoids unwanted side-effects of all the medications for heart disease.

First of all, you need to understand what causes heart disease so click on the link if you want to know more.

Reverse Heart Disease with Healing Foods - Is It possible?

Controllable factors that can contribute to the causes of heart disease include smoking, high blood pressure, excessive alcohol consumption, elevated cholesterol, persistent stress, obesity, a sedentary lifestyle and diabetes.

But what you eat could be a very important factor in developing heart disease. In fact, food can be a major determinant of how quickly and severely your arteries get clogged.

It can set in motion destructive processes that leave arteries narrow and stiff, just right for the formation of blood clots that cause heart muscle to suffocate and die.

saturated fats contribute to heart disease
  • Especially saturated fats, found in whole milk, butter, cheese, sausage, steak and poultry, encourage inflammation, leading to cardiovascular disease and many other health problems, such as cancer, and degenerative diseases.
  • Trans-fatty acids, found in margarines, processed snack foods and baked goods, such as donoughts, are even worse for your heart than animal fats.
  • Refined carbohydrates are also an enemy of blood walls. They turn into sugar very quickly, raise insulin levels, damage blood walls and are transformed into fats very quickly.

Conversely, food can supply a chemical armada that circulates in the blood, disarming the artery's enemies even scrubbing away some of their dangerous handiwork from artery walls, so it's actually able to reverse heart disease.

Food can create blood-clot solvents, blood thinners and cholesterol reducers. You will learn all about these foods in the next pages.


Reverse Heart Disease Without Drugs?

Because those suffering with cardiovascular disease often have more than one problem, several drugs may be prescribed at once, all with their set of side-effects.

For most people, cutting down the amount or changing the type of fat in their diet or following any advice found on the next few pages, is sufficient to reduce the risk of atherosclerosis.

For those with an inherited tendency to high levels of fat in the blood (hypercholesterolaemia), however, lipid-lowering drugs may also be recommended.



One thing is for sure, cardiovascular disease is not an inevitable result of aging. Many preventive measures can be taken to avoid it.

Good news is, you can alter your lifestyle to keep your heart healthy.

Now that you know what causes heart disease, what are you going to do about it?

You can start with having a look at the next page where you'll find a summary of some of the healing foods for heart disease.

You can then look up each one of them individually and have lots more information on how they act to prevent and treat heart disease, as well as the latest research on their effectiveness.
