Avatar n tn Researchers took 23,000 people and studied their risk factors for heart disease. They found that changes in diet reduced heart attack risk by 81 percent. How could such simple changes deliver such amazing results? By lowering blood pressure and reducing inflammation. This comes as no surprise to NHD panel member Dr. Dwight Lundell. He was a heart surgeon for 25 years and performed over 5,000 open-heart surgeries. During his career he’s pioneered several innovative advances in coronary medicine.

Avatar m tn AND, since many have become westernised, they have certainly started to see the real effects of heart disease. Erijon is correct in that these individual cases are often used to try and disprove the benefits of medications, but they never use the full story.

Avatar m tn There are certainly a large number of people with national average cholesterol levels, or even lower who have heart disease. There is a lot of research ongoing to try and understand what exactly is going on with lipids and heart disease. There is a link somewhere, but still nobody really knows what it is. Lowering lipids works for many people, but also for many people it definitely doesn't work and this is the reason for the research, it isn't so cut and dry.

Avatar n tn Hello, I am not a doctor or anything, but I would suggest that you stay up to date on your physicals and explain to your dr. that your family has a strong heart disease history. He or she may decide, that if your having symptoms of heart disease or if you have something that may turn into heart disease (such as high cholesterol- high blood pressure) than you may need to be treated or monitored closely.
Avatar m tn It is also odd how Japan used to be a main protein diet nation, then after hearing scares of fat related heart disease, they switched to carbs. They are now seeing heart disease increasing. I just don't understand what's taking so long in finding the cause. Perhaps they spent too many years looking at fat.
Avatar n tn It is also a major cause of disability. There are many different forms of heart disease. The most common cause of heart disease is narrowing or blockage of the coronary arteries, the blood vessels that supply blood to the heart itself. This is called coronary artery disease and happens slowly over time. It's the major reason people have heart attacks.

Avatar n tn I have read and heard about Dr. Budwig's protocol regarding cancer and heart disease. Are there any studies done on this mixture of cottage cheese, flaxoil, flaxseeds, berries? If yes. Where can I find this infomation?
Avatar f tn My dr suggested no soda in the first trimester period. I'm 30 weeks now and he told me I could drink 1 diet soda a day.. Not a fan of diet so I skip it lol but I'd double check with ur physician . U wouldn't think it would hurt in moderation.
Avatar m tn It take HUGE lifestyle changes to stop heart disease. You have to eat a very healthy diet, exercise regularly, not smoke, stay stress free (not easy in societies of today). I often wonder if the lifestyle changes make medication necessary if you can achieve them. I've not seen a study done on this, but it would be very interesting. Personally, I think a good healthy lifestyle would not require medication unless your heart has already become too bad.
Avatar f tn Since diet plays a part in heart disease I have been on a strict Vegan diet assuming that animal fat or bi-products are clogging my arteries. I began this diet in January of this year. Can anyone comment on this? I would like to know if anyone has tried this diet and had success. Any input or opinions would be appreciated.
805943 tn?1238093647 You need correct answers from your doctor, so that you can improve your cholesterol with diet and medication. Heart medication is the best way to treat heart disease if you catch it early. Heart medication taking correctly will avoid the visits to the hospital. I hope you get some good answers from your cardiologist and start feeling better soon. Many people with heart disease can live a life, but need to watch their diet to stay healthy. Take care and try to avoid stress.
