Avoid heart disease - page 2
(Continued from page 1)
Intravenous chelation therapy is a well proven therapy and has been performed on more people than have received bypass surgery.
of course, tremendous differences between the two. The cost of bypass
surgery has risen steadily until it now costs about $50,000 for a
Insurance? Well, you can guess. Insurance companies pay for bypass, depending on your coverage. Some doctors do get chelation covered by insurance, but usually the insurance wont pay for this far superior, and much less expensive treatment.
What about longevity?
Here is the biggest difference of all.
Bypass surgery patients have no change in their life expectancy - compared to heart patients who had the same symptoms and dont get the surgery.
Chelation patients have a tremendous increase in their life expectancy, although the chelation doctors are reluctant to admit it. It turns out that intravenous chelation therapy greatly reduces the risk of cancer as well as further heart disease. Why? Because the chelation treatment deals with abasic source of all illnesses - the tiny particles of metal which accumulate over time and which greatly increase the production of free radicals in the body. As the interior source of free radical production is reduced, by more than a million times, the acceleration of aging stops and people generally feel much younger.
Intravenous chelation therapy is covered in more detail here.
Another solution to heart disease: Oral chelation.
Oral chelation is somewhat similar to intravenous chelation, except that the EDTA is absorbed by mouth. Oral chelation takes longer than intravenous chelation to produce its beneficial effects , because only a small percentage of the EDTA ingested is actually assmilited by the body, compared to 100% with intravenous chelation. On the other hand, oral chelation may be accessible to more people as it can be done from home.
chelation is covered in more detail here.
Another solution to heart disease: Exercise
Women who spend as little as 1 hour walking each week can cut their risk of heart disease by 50%.
The study (5) found that walking, even at a moderate clip, reduced heart disease risk among nearly 40,000 women, including those who smoked, had high cholesterol and were overweight.
Current guidelines for physical activity recommend at least 30 minutes of moderate intensity exercise, such as brisk walking or rebounding, on most days of the week. Previous guidelines recommended vigorous activity such as cycling or jogging, for at least 20 minutes 3 times a week to lower heart disease risk.
The study (1) found that women who walked for up to 1 hour over the course of a week lowered their heart disease risk by 14% compared to women who did no exercise. Those who walked 1 hour to 1 1/2 hours per week at a pace of at least 3 miles/hour reduced their heart disease risk by 51%.
In another study (2) , researchers found that intense exercise such as swimming laps or running cut heart disease risk to a greater extent than moderate activity did.
Among more than 12,500 middle-aged and older men, regular vigorous exercise reduced heart disease risks by up to 20%, while walking regularly was linked to only a 10% decline.
But we all know exercise is good for us. But this information does us no good until we DO IT. Why do we not do it then? Procastination? Lazyness? Mental barriers? Transcendental meditation has helped me make marked improvements in not only my health and behavior but all aspects of my life. I highly recommend you look into it .
One more solution: Drinking more water.
It wonít cost you anything and I know, from personal experience, that you will achieve amazing health benefits from applying this one simple suggestion.
When you look at how much water people actually drink, there will be
In this section I am going to try to convince you to significantly change your water consumption habits. Iím going to promise you health benefits resulting from a change in your water consumption - health benefits which you may not believe at first. Whether you believe them or not, my goal is only that you will try them, and then prove to yourself that what I write here is true for you.
Health, when you think about it, is a mental phenomenon . You are responsible for the health condition you are in - every inch and every pound of it.
It is YOU who decides to drink the Pepsi and eat the doughnut. It is you who drives to the store instead of walking.
It will be YOU who decides to drink more water. There is no one else to thank or to blame. If you go out as a diseased blimp, or if you die peacefully in your sleep at a ripe old age, it will all be because of your choices and your actions.
Water in the body is normally in the form of blood going through the veins and arteries, and also there is water inside each cell. Thus, blood cells contain water and blood cells travel in a stream of water which contains so many blood cells that it looks red. Blood is really nothing more than a stream of water with red-colored, water-filled cells floating along in it. You have more water in your lymph system, and lots of water in your intestines and other organs.
I highly recommend the book "Your Body's Many Cries For Water" if you want to grasp just how important water is to your health.
