I have a family history of heart disease going back to my grandparents and who knows before that. And on both sides of my family. So it looks like I have the same health problems and shortened life span as those before me. Not so. If you live the same life style as far as diet and lack of exercise is concerned, yes you are likely to meet the same fate.
I was 49 years old when I had a stent implanted in my heart, and I was already on a mostly vegetarian diet, and was an avid runner.
I was placed on all the meds. Plavix, lotrel, aspirin, lipitor etc and in large doses.
I believe I was lead to the help I recieved through prayer. And it cost me $16.00.
I bought a book called eat to live by Dr Joel Fuhrman. I read it in one sitting. Every thing said within its pages made common sense to me.
It was easy and worked within a short time .
I am now three years down the road from my heart problem, and I am off all the meds I am 6'0 and weighed 215 lbs, the fat came off very quickly (in the first eight weeks) and kept it off now 175lbs.
At last weeks annual cardio Dr visit my total cholesterol 138 hdl 53 , ldl 71, triglyserides 68, blood pressure below 120/70 is normal for me now.
I know you can do the same as I have. Dr Furhman takes on patients who have known heart disease who have been told the must have angioplasty or bypass and in over twenty years of practice has not lost even one to a heart attack. That in its self should say enough. Heart disease is not only preventable it is Reversible.
Most of his patients have the angina pains relieved in a few weeks.
All the very best BC.
PS: Have you noticed all the cholesterol lowering drug adds on television say "HELPS SLOW THE PROGRESSION OF HEART DISEASE" so taking statins may slow but will not stop the blockages from getting worse. You have to do more.
