This is not medical advice I am posting this here for informational and educational purposes.
I have much more to add to this but have burned out doing it and will finish adding things to it later. I feel I have covered the most important things.
There are many things that can cause heart disease. Infection especially tick born illness. Gut dysbiosis, and cancida. Systematic inflammation is a major cause of heart disease and this can be caused by toxins especially those found in GMO foods. Many food additives cause heart disease especially transfat and aritificial sweeteners. Processed sugar causes heart disease. Oddly when I looked at sugars like maple syrup, honey and molasses they actually reduced inflammation.The same with fruits high in sugar so I have come to the conclusion when things are no longer in their natural form they lose their health benefits and act more like a drug. Almost all drugs has side effects and have a negative impact on the body. The whole idea that cholesterol causes heart disease was based on one study that was not a clinical study but was an observational study. Observational studies are supposed to be used to develop and test a theory and clinical studies are used to test the theory. So observational studies should never be used to draw a final conclusion yet almost all pharmaceutical and medical protocols are based on observational studies. We need to overcome the myths put out by modern medicine and their villiainzing of cholesterol. The odd thing is I found things that help with hypertension usually help with myocarditis or tachcardia. But it actually isn’t that odd they are both caused by oxidative stress and inflammation. I have posted on cholesterol separately if you search my blog.
Excess Oxidative stress leads to chronic illness there is a test to see if you have excess oxidative stress. If you do not get it resolved you cannot heal. You can get a test to check oxidative stress levels.
There are other test that can help identify which areas of the anti-oxidant system are working and which may not be working. This can help identify the sources of high ROS levels or other toxins produced in the body from oxidative stress.
For those who prefer watching videos.
This is a more in depths discussion on cholesterol.
Cholesterol deficiency can lead to gall bladder problems Non alcohol fatter liver and many other chronic dieseases.
Since they have gotten people to reduce cholesterol intake chronic illness has exploded.
They also spread false fears about fats to get people to consume their alternatives. The truth of things is the fats we used to consume are good for us and the alternatives they tell us are good for us to fatten their pockets are actually what causes heart disease and obesity. It is one of the things that has contributed to the sudden and dramatic rise in obesity and heart disease.
Another thing they do is to make all starch seem to be bad but we need some starches to prevent cardiovascular disease.
They make all sugars including ones found in fruit seem bad but D-mannitol which is found in some berries has many protective effects and so do the sugars found in most fruits and vegetables unless they are GMO. This is why oxLDL is lower in those who eat fruits and vegetables.
We should work towards homeostasis but doctors seem to not know the meaning of the word. They will prescribe megadoses of vitamin C which cause the opposite effects and will cause cardiovascular disease.
Inflammation is the main cause of heart disease and chronic illness.
It is very important to understand oxidative stress which can be caused by many things, and it’s role in lipid metabolism.
This is probably some of the best advice I have seen on lowering blood pressure.
Inflammation is a sign the body is trying to heal itself and we need to help it.
There are many lies about cholesterol that are not backed by science. Most modern medicine is based on observation and not science.
The brain needs cholesterol , cholesterol deficiency causes mental illness.
I can literally post hundreds of studies showing the negative impact vaccines have on the heart.
One of the worlds most well known heart surgeons has been speaking out about the true cause of heart disease.
This is part of the reason heart diseases has taken a dramatic rise in the U.S. Those who consume less cholesterol have a higher mortality rate and a better chance of developing chronic illness.
Here is an example of the pharmaceutical industry trying to put their medications in a positive light by saying that they raise HDL levels. Bad thing about that they have found those with low LDL levels and high HDL levels have a higher mortality rate. Stands to reason. OxLDL means that the antioxidants system is working. If there is no oxLDL and the body is in and inflammatory state or under oxidative stress and there is no oxLDL it is an indications something is not working because oxLDL is a sign the body is working to repair something so inhibiting it would inhibit the bodies ability to repair. You can also have high oxLDL if you are eating too much oxidized cholesterol. The body has to convert it to a form it can use and if you eat too much it can deplete your antioxidants. That is when antioxiants do help as longs as we make sure we correct any issues that effect the antioxidant system.
People who take statins has a higher mortality rate.
They claim statins protect against cancer but that has proven not to be true.
Many doctors errantly tell people to avoid eggs but studies have shown they should be a part of a healthy diet. It is the type of eggs that is important. Just like grain feed beef was found to be higher in oxidized cholesterol, grain feed chickens produces eggs high in oxidized cholesterol. We want to try and get free range chicken eggs or eggs from chickens feed a diet that is close to what they would naturally eat.
Cholesterol is very important for the proper function of our immune system.
Our bodies are incapable of making the hormones needed without cholesterol and statins inhibit the bodies ability to use cholesterol so can you imagine what they are doing to the body.Your intake of fats and cholesterol have very little to do with your levels of cholesterol in your blood. The exceptions to that is if you consume high levels of Omega 6 and transfats which cause inflammation and arteriosclerosis. They also damage soft tissue throughout the body.
Not only that CoQ10 is needed by the cells in our bodies, especially our brains. Statins cause cognitive decline that cannot be reversed because of this , it pretty much causes the brain cell to petrify. I know that is not an accurate term to describe it but it is the nearest thing I can think of to convey what it does to the brain.
This is why statins cause muscle damage and muscle loss.
Statins have even been found to cause diabetes which we know contributes to heart disease. In many instances they have been found to be of no benefit.
Statins have been found to promote arteriosclerosis.
Studies like this amuse me. They state eating oatmeal lowers LDL. Well the problem with that is those with low LDL levels have a higher mortality rate. They should be looking at oxLDL, it is a sign of inflammation and oxidative stress. It reduces LDL because it is reducing inflammation but allopathic medicine is stuck on treating the symptoms and not the cause. I could speculate and assume they do this to keep people from healing and keep them running on a medical hamster wheel so they have a permanent customer. There is no money in a healthy patient. When we eat fiber it increases butyric acid which reduces inflammation and oxidative stress.
Reducing oxidative stress reduces hypertension.
Fasting reduces LDL but should be researched and done correctly. Also those with type 1 diabetes can experience Ketoacidosis from fasting so it is not for everyone.
Pheylpyrucic Acid is produced when fasting and it helps in repairing the heart.
Often times it is allopathic medications themselves can cause the heart disease. Fluroquinolones are one of the worst and can cause damage throughout the body that you may never recover from.
POTS caused by tachycardia can be caused by infection especially tick born illness and vaccine injury. It will cause dizziness when you ex cert yourself or when standing. Or when under stress especially heat stress. RoundUp which has been found to heavily contaminate our food supply causes tachycardia. There are many now days that have unexplained tachycardia. Usually it ends up being either glyphosate, tick born illness or heavy metal toxicity like mercury.
POTS is often times drug induced.
POTS can also be caused by damage to the NMDA receptor. I have posted on things that may help with that.
These are some things that helped with my POTS.
Tick born illness
Many of these things can cause mast cell activation syndrome which can also cause POTS and other cardio vascular diseases.
There are many illnesses mast cell activation syndrome causes and usually when someone is experiencing heart disease they experience many of these illnesses also.
The flu vaccine has the highest rate of vaccine injury but at the rate things are going the HPV vaccine may surpass it. The injury from the HPV vaccine is much more sever.
If you do not reduce inflammation you will not get your blood pressure back to homeostasis. The benefits of this pharmaceutical was exaggerated as usual but it demonstrates the importance of reducing inflammaton.
Antidiuretic Hormone is involved in the regulation of blood pressure.
If you have heart arrhythmia this is a good source of information that may help. Dehydration is very common in those with high blood pressure. Most do not even recommend drinking more water to those with high blood pressure. This article surprised me and mentioned it which I found refreshing to see someone who really gets it.
Now to cover the cholesterol. Those with high cholesterol lives longer which stands to reason. Cholesterol is an antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, helps fight pathogens and the heart and brain cannot function without it. High oxLDL is a symptoms not a cause it indicates there is a problem that needs addressed. Reducing it will make things worse not better. Those who take statins have been shown to have a higher mortality rate.
Gut bacteria help keep our TMAO levels down. High TMAO levels cause inflammation and oxidative stress. It can indicate a metabolic issue or an imbance in our gut bacteria. Olive oil was found to inhibit our gut bacterias ability to produce TMAO. If TMAO is high your body odor may have a fish smell and for woman their vagina’s may have a fish smell.
You can medicate the gut bacteria with naturals to prevent TMAO formation.
There are many other ways an imbalance in our gut bacteria can cause heart disease.
Vitamin B12 status can effect our heart. I do not say deficiency because in some they could have high B12 levels but if they have high levels of farm chemicals from eating foods that contain them it will inhibit their bodies ability to convert it to a usable for. Those who are not converting will get headaches when they take B12 and my feel ill. Often times because they know low B12 can cause irregular heart beats they will give IV B12 which can make someone who is not converting very ill.
There are many things that can effect bile acid production. If it is inhibited we can develop diabetes because it can effect the whole body including the heart. It also effects the pancreas and when it is inhibited the pancreas will produce less digestive enzymes which will make our food sit in our digestive tract and ferment. This will make us bloated and will make it feel like we have a heavy weight sitting in our guts. This can cause H Pylori and Candida to go from commensal to pathogenic form. I have posted on how to balance our gut bacteria. It can also cause us to develop either acidosis or alkalosis. If you have candida you will have alkalosis and will experience anxiety and difficulty sleeping. If you have acidosis you will be very drowsy and experience episodes of severe depression. I have posted on all the above mentioned.
This is a list of nutrients that help with heart disease and it discussed why they work. It helps to put into perspective some of the causes of heart disease.
Heart attack occur more in the winter because of vitamin D deficiency. Guess where Eskimos got their vitamin D. From the animal fat they consumed.
The way we breath can effect our blood pressure. Breathing deeply can lower blood pressure. If we have acidosis we will breath quickly and shallow to reduce CO2 levels which will reduce the acid levels. If we have alkalosis we may breath deeply and very slowly almost to the point were take very few breaths per minute. We must address the issues that are causing the alkalosis or acidosis before breathing will be effective.
There are many things that can cause high C Reactive levels in the blood. This causes inflammation. Tick born illness and many other infections can cause it. Toxins like glyphosate can cause high C Reactive levels and it has been found to be high in much of the food we consume. Also heavy metals and vaccine injury can cause high C Reactive levels. So it is very important to address these things to get our C Reactive levels down.
Leaky gut and our gut bacteria effect the health of our whole body. It raises histamines which cause hypertension or carditis.
How Glyphosate effects the gut and health of the body.
I have posted on sulfites and sulfation. If we have high sulfite levels or we have sulfation issues it can cause heart disease. Sulfur is very important for regulating many things throughout the body including hormones and blood pressure. Glyphosate, glufosinate and mercury inhibit sulfation.
This can effect BH4 levels. Green Tea raises BH4 levels but must be used in moderation because over use can raise histamine levels.
This is talking about genetic issues and autoimmune disorders that can cause heart disease. We know many of these negative epigenetic changes are caused by man and can be corrected. Most autoimmunity is induced by man with toxins like glyphosate, heavy metals and vaccines. We must address those to correct the cardiovascular issues.
If you look at the stats and the rise in chronic illness it coincides with the introduction of GMOs and glyphosate. So much so that it is too much to be a coincidence.
Trans Fats found in fast food and processed food causes cardiovascular disease.
Discussion of nutrients and their effects on blood pressure and what deficiencies do to the cardiovascular system.
Vaccine inujury, mycoplasma infection, heavy metals , and farm chemicals can cause autoimmunity. This can lead to antiphospholipid syndrome which leads to many forms of chronic illness..
If you show sign of antiphopholipid syndrome it is very important to prevent thrombosis.
Those with cardiovascular disease have been found to be low in certain nutrients which causes high homocysteine levels.
Lipocalins involvement in strokes and heart disease.
Could not find much research on how to increase relaxin but it has been shown to help with liver fibrosis, COPD and cardiovascular disease, In reduces inflammation.
Nrf2 is the master regulator of the antioxidant system. Problems with Nrf2 can cause the body to lose it’s ability to detox, to neutralize free radicals or it can even cause excess oxidative stress. It is even involved in the bodies response to inflammation.
Nrf2 is part of the redox system. Nutrient deficiencies especially minerals can have a negative impact on the redox system. Glhyphosate and glufosinate along with over farming deplete nutrients from the soil so many have nutrient deficiencies. When the redox system is not functioning it causes cardiovascular disease.
The Mediterranean diet reduces heart disease because it reduces oxidative stress and inflammation. They mention curcumin in here. It has amazing healing abilities but chelates iron from the body so it is something that should be used in moderation so a person does not make themselves anemic. It should not be a problem in the U.S. because GMOs and glyphosate cause nutrient deficiencies so they fortify the foods with iron. Because of that many have very high levels of iron which can cause heart disease.
This paper reviewed the research on fats and their effects on the body. Omega 3s help reduce heart disease including myocarditis. But there is times only fats can cause problems. If a person has pyrrole issues which can be a symptom of porphyria they will have problems with fats. It is a very serious health problem that can be corrected with the correct nutrients and lifestyle changes. I have posted in it. There are a number of types of Omega fatty acids. The American diet is high in Omega 6 which has been shown to cause inflammation. Omega 3 Fatty acids should be at a higher level then Omega 6 in the body. Because they are involved in the regulation of many metabolic pathways, consuming too much Omega 6 can cause many health problems. Metabolic syndrome is a cause of diabetes and heart disease.
Histidine helps protect the heart. This may seem confusing but if you read my post on high and low histamines it will explain. Histidine deficiency can cause many negative health effects. Aromatase enzyme are important for it’s proper function. Glyphosate, glufosinate and some foods can inhibit aromatase which can raise ammonia levels in the body resulting in alkalosis. Histidine is important in our response to stress.
Now the bad and it shows the importance of nutrients and homeostasis. A folate deficiency (not folic acid it is toxic) can raise histidine levels which can cause histamine levels to go too high resulting in chronic illness. So the most important thing is to focus on balancing nutrient and histidine levels.
This is a good article explaining histamines in depth.
Proteinuria can be brought on by many things. It can be corrected but could be a sign there are high sulfite levels or sulfation issues. If not addressed it can lead to diabetes, heart disease and even death.
How our lifestyle can effect our heart and our sex life.
Stress cannot be avoided that is why it is necessary to work on learning to handle stress and not let it overwhelm us. It has a very bad impact on on our health especially the cardiovascular system.
The ketogenic diet has been shown to help with oxLDL but I do not believe in staying on one specific diet. The body was made to consume a variety of foods and once homeostasis is achieved I feel it is better to start adding other types of foods to the diet.
How angiotensin contributes to heart disease.
Now on the other side of the coin too much potassium can cause problems that is why we should always focus on homeostasis.
Endothelins role in cardiovascular disease and how to decrease them.
Plants or Herbs that may help with heart disease.
Aldosterone though not an herb regulates water and electrolyte balance in the body which can have dramatic effects on our blood pressure and the heart. Sodium Bicarbonate in the mineral water helps with hypertension also.
Black Sativa is a super food. It could be listed in just about any healing remedies from diabetes to mental illness. It also helps with high blood pressure and carditis.
Butyric Acid also known as butyrate is great for healing throughout the body. It is produced by our gut bacteria when we eat fiber, consume milk products and certain carbohydrates. It is needed by the brain and helps fight inflammation and oxidative stress. When deficient in it we can develop leaky gut which can lead to heart disease.
PQQ is another nutrient that has amazing healing properties. It even helps heal neurological damage.
Okra is another plant with amazing healing properties. It is in the mallow family, most plants in the mallow family have amazing health benefits.
Cissus has too many benefits to list.
Peas are ACE inhibitors but you have to make sure they are organic. The farm chemicals on non organic cause heart disease.
Rice bran is an antioxidant and is an ACE inhibitor.
Sunflower seeds reduce the chances of heart disease. You have to make sure they are from a source that is grown in soil that is not contaminated. They are very good at pulling radiation from the soil. If you sprout them they are more nutritious.
Nattokinase thins the blood , it helps with thrombosis by preventing blog clots.
Gingko inhibits bradykinin which contributes to tachycardia. But I have seen a study that showed that renal damage starts to occur if taken for an extended amount of time. It really helped me with my brain fog but I had a strange reaction to it. The first couple of days I got a really bad headache when I took it. But I continued to take it and on about the fourth day I could feel my brain fog starting to lift. I still take it once in a while to help keep the brain fog from coming back but until I am certain of the toxicity I will not take it often. I have only seen one study on the toxicity and there was a lot of data missing leaving me uncertain if it was the gingko that caused the renal damage. Sophora root helps with just about any type of heart disease. It really helped my carditis.
Be pollen is a supper food. It has many proteins that the body can easily use without having to work hard to use. It also has many minerals the body needs. Hence it reduces inflammation which causes arteriosclerosis.
Burdock reduces inflammation and oxidative stress. Diabetes and heart disease can be caused by oxidative stress and inflammation which leads to metabolic disorders. Burdock also helps with metabolic disorders.
Mugwort raises GABA which causes relaxation and is a calcium channel blocker. They claim thujone is toxic but it takes a very high amount to become toxic. They often do things like that , and I believe it is to deter people from healing so they can keep them on the allopathic hamster wheel. Yeah they tell people to take high levels of iron which is toxic and most in the U.S. have been found to have levels of iron that are too high which causes oxidative stress. Mugwort which has the same phytochemicals as wormwood reduces hypertension.
Rooibos is another amazing herb. It reduces inflammation and prevents thrombosis. It also kills many pathogens especially in the lungs. It also improves breathing.
Bacopa helped me a lot it is great for healing the blood vessels and for reducing inflammation and oxidative stress. This also reduces symptoms of carditis.
Berberine reduces inflammation, heals the liver and fights many pathogens. It helps lower blood pressure because of it’s healing properties.
Virgin olive oil has many healing abilities and inhibits our gut bacterias ability to produce TMAO so it reduces blood pressure and risk of heart disease.
Honeyberry a type of honesuckle is great for healing and preventing cardiovascular disease.
This is a type of fleabane. I have looked at the phytochemicals of the various species of fleabane it they are very similar . Most in the fleabane family have the same health benefits which are numerous. They help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.
Plant polyphenols reduce cardiovascular disease by preventing thrombosis and preventing blot clotting. They thin the blood.
Soursop prevents thrombosis.
Kudzu has many benefits and has been shown to help reduce blood pressure. When I was very ill it helped me a lot.
Many spices help with heart disease and other chronic illness because they reduce inflammation.
There are many natural sources of ACE inhibitors that usually do not cause the side effects or dangers involved with pharmaceuticals.
Some cheeses will raise histamines but others actually work as ACE inhibitors.
The flavoniods in the white part of citrus fruits helps with cardiovascular disease.
Taxifolin also known as isoquerciten has amazing healing abilities. It is found in milk thistle and has been shown to reduce carditits and high blood pressure.
Galinsoga is another plant with amazing healing abilities throughout the body.
Heat Shock Protein 70 can effect our blood pressure and this discusses how to raise and lower it.
Butchers Broom heals the blood vessels. This one helped me a lot it has many healing properties.
This is a type of Golden Rod. Most of the golden rod has similar photchemicals. They are very high in quercitren so are very good for healing.
Low oxygen levels can be caused by acidosis, infection, oxidative stress , COPD and many other health issues. This causes high blood pressure.
PEA helps fight the common cold and flu because it reduces inflammation so would also help hypertension since inflammation causes hypertension.
Maca root seems to inhibit N-acyletholamine acid which would increase PEA levels.
Oxazolidone inhibits NAAA increasing PEA levels.
Antibiotics derived from penicillin inhibit NAAA unfortunately I am allergic to penicillin.
Metabolic syndrome causes an number of illnesses and hypertension and cardiac disease is a few of them. This is a list of plants and their effects are metabolic syndrome.
Pomegranate has been shown to be an ACE inhibitor. I have found more benefits from eating the seeds then drinking the juice.
Astaxantan helps reduce oxidative stress and inflammation. It is high in krill oil.
Prickly Lettuce also known as Opium Lettuce helps protect the heart but must be used in moderation because it has a chemical in it similar to opium but is not addictive.
Saffron is another one of those herbs that has amazing healing abilities. It helps with carditis and hypertension.
Self heal helps fight viruses, inflammation and oxidative stress. It is an Nrf2 activator so it would help with Nrf2 issues which would help with many forms of chronic illness.
Purslane is a super food, it contains almost all the nutrients needed by the body. It has been found to help with heart disease.
Garlic helps with cardiovascular disease. You have to make sure you do not have high sulfite levels or sulfation issues. If you do it will make you worse.
Wild violet is one of my favorite to eat. It has great anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
Flaxseed has many healing properties because it has Omega 3 in it. It must be crushed because we cannot digest it.
Grape seed extract is another that has many amazing healing abilities and protects the cardiovascular system. The only draw back with grape seed extract is that it is high in resveratrol which give it many healing abilities but resveratrol can activate the hepatitis virus so those with hepatitis my want to avoid it and use other herbs that will prevent inflammation and thrombosis.
There are many plant sources of things that help with cardiovascular disease.
Paeonia root helps prevent thrombosis.
Corn silk is another thing that has many health benefits including preventing heart disease.
Camu Camu has many healing abilities so helps with cardiovascular disease. It raises GABA levels which helps with sleep and relaxation.
Grass fed but is one of the best things for any type of illness.
Lycopene is great for healing one of the best sources of it are cooked tomatoe skins.
Thiamine deficiency can lead to hypertension and chronic illness.
Those who are G6PD deficient or have certain metabolic issues would get ill from the foods that contain thiamine so they may have to supplement thiamine until they have corrected those issues.
Hawthorne leaves and fruit have many health benefits. They help with hypertension and carditis. They have also been found to fight many forms of cancer.
White malberry helps with hypertension.
Nattokinase helps prevent thrombosis. Thrombosis can be a result of infection especially tick born illness and vaccine injury which causes antiphospholipid syndrome. This can result in cardiovascular disease.
This is how nattokinase prevents heart disease.
Rooibos also helps prevent thrombosis.
Arjuna inhibits thrombosis which helps with cardiovascular disease.
There are many other naturals that help inhibit thrombosis.
I have posted on HSP70 it prevents thrombosis without causing excessive bleeding.
Tenascan-C is needed for heart repair. But if it is too high it can cause health problems. Homeostasis should be the goal.
Tenascan-C is high in COPD
High tenascan-c levels increases risk of cancer.
High TMAO levels cause heart disease. I posted on how to reduce TMAO in my gut bacteria post.
Vitamin B6 deficiency can lead to heart disease.
Flavonolignans help prevent thrombosis.
Ghrelin anti-aging mechanism.
Beta glucan reduces risk of heart disease and has many other beneficial properties.
Reduces blood pressure.
Rooibos protects the heart by reducing oxidative stress and by reducing inflammation. Rooibos is also an ACE inhibitor.
Tenascan-C is needed for heart repair. High Tenascan-C levels can cause heart problems so the goal should be homeostasis.
Tenascan-C is high in COPD
High tenascan-c levels increases risk of cancer.
