The cardiovascular system
The cardiovascular system gets oxygen and nutrients to your entire body and removes waste. Your cells depend on your cardiovascular system to get what they need to keep running smoothly. That’s why it’s vital to take care of your heart with exercise, a healthy diet and controlled blood pressure and cholesterol.
If you suspect problems, you want to do a more traditional cardiac workup or make a referral to a cardiologist. Nutritional support can coincide with traditional methods. The important thing is to protect the life of the client. Nutritional and other natural therapies take time to work and are best for chronic problems. Traditional medical practitioners are the best choice for treating acute medical emergencies.
Tips For A Healthier Heart
Avoid refined sugar and refined carbohydrates
Refined food is just as bad as saturated fat when it comes to its harmful effects on the cardiovascular system.
Also, a refined food diet is low in folic acid, B12, and B6, all of which are necessary to keep homocysteine levels low. High homocysteine levels increase the risks of cardiac problems as much as cholesterol.
Syndrome X, a situation where the total cholesterol, triglycerides, and LDL (bad cholesterol) are increased and the HDL (good cholesterol) is decreased, is linked to the consumption of too many refined carbohydrates and poor carbohydrate tolerance.
Avoid hydrogenated and partially‐hydrogenated oils
Avoid margarine and all sources of hydrogenated oil, these are linked to heart disease
You find these in packaged food and margarine.
Keep this in mind; there are still physicians out there who have their cardiac patients eating margarine.
Also, limit your intake of saturated fats.
Eat plenty of green vegetables
Fiber and folic acid are only two of the reasons why clients should eat vegetables. Folic acid helps reduce homocysteine levels, and fiber reduces the absorption of fats and sugars and helps intestinal and liver health.
Magnesium is important for good cardiac function and can reduce blood pressure.
Two of the best ways to reduce cholesterol and blood pressure isby taking plenty of fiber and doing exercise.
Simple aerobic exercise is enough, never become out of breath or be unable to talk while working out. Get older clients to walk.
Drink Enough Water
