Your cardiovascular system needs cleansing so that you can have a healthy heart.
Imagine the amount of money you save if you avoid the hassle of landing on some operating table for a by-pass surgery later on down the road.
Coronary Heart Disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. Approximately 15 million people have some form of this condition.
This is why you must take precautionary measures to protect your cardiovascular system.
The American Heart Association says cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death of women over the age of 25 years.
Unfortunately, only a very small percentage of women are aware that it's a threat to their health.
It is caused by atherosclerosis.
A fatty substance called arterial plaque builds up gradually on the inside walls of your arteries and this causes the arteries in your cardiovascular system to get narrow.
Consequently, oxygen-rich blood flow to your heart slows down.
And that's when you experience chest pain.
Did you ever notice that you easily get out of breath every time you went up the stairs at home?
Chances are, the bad cholesterol and trans fat from all those hamburgers, pizzas and all other unhealthy nutrition you've been having have piled up gradually and manifested themselves in the form of plaque in your arteries.
They are gradually doing some damage to your cardiovascular system.
That's why you're constantly out of breath.
Atherosclerosis is a complicated condition, its exact cause is still unknown. However, your chances of getting it are high if you have these risk factors:
Risk Factors Beyond Your Control
Dr. Ludgerio Torres Speaks About the Cardiovascular System
Here's A Very Important Risk Factor to Consider
High levels of CRP ( C-Reactive Protein) in the blood.
High levels of this protein means there is inflammation in your body.
Inflammation is your body's response to injury and the damage inflicted on the inner walls of your arteries triggers inflammation.
Consequently, this helps plaque already embedded in your cardiovascular system grow even more.
The bad news is, it can eventually cause a coronary heart disease.
How to Maintain a Healthy Cardiovascular System
What do you have to do? Make a lifestyle change!
Bottom line? Think about your loved ones, don't let things reach the point where they'd have to visit you in some hospital room with some flowers.
Cleanse your arteries to ensure that your cardiovascular system is in the peak of health always.
A pound of prevention is always worth more than a ton of cure.
What you learn here may save somebody's life someday.
