How to Prevent and Treat Heart Disease Naturally
Hi, my name is Dr. Troy Giles. I’m a Doctor of Chiropractic and a Natural Internist and I wanted to talk to you today about something that’s been a little bit close to my heart over the last couple of days, in that, in fact, right now my brother in law is about three hours away from finishing up a quadruple bypass. Actually it will be a five bypass and a new aortic arch aorta, the aortic valve in his heart. No symptoms, he had no idea that this was an issue. He was going to go on a scout camp out, went to go get his physical. The doctor said let’s do a stress test. That was Wednesday. Today’s Friday. Yesterday they called him and said you need to come back. We’ve got some issues in your stress test. Let’s do a, what’s the one where they go up in through the artery…what? Angiogram, thank you. They did an angiogram yesterday and came out and said you know what? He’s got severe heart disease and we need to keep him overnight. We’ll do open heart surgery in the morning. My sister was just amazed. So he’s about, they finished the upper replacements. They’ve replaced the valve and now they’re going to go towards the next couple of hours, go down towards the lower, the lower arteries for the heart. But that’s an amazing thing, in that my other brother in law is going to be going into his surgery on Monday, same thing, quadruple bypass. This is a big deal. It’s a big deal to me because it’s happening right now to my family, but it happens to my patients all the time, not all the time, but it’s there. It’s present. I believe for women it’s the second, either the first or second leading reason for death. In men it’s first, I think. So it’s a big deal. So I wanted to talk to you a little bit about prevention and treatment, what to do if you have heart disease, where to go. First off, see your cardiologist, of course. Have your cardiologist be on board there, to see your GP if you have any issues of chest pain. You know, if you have it’s called intermittent claudication, when it occasionally will come and go with exercise, with stress and pressure. What’s happening the heart is a pump. So think about a pump pumping fluid. As it contracts, you’ve got a lot of blood flow through the heart. But the issue is the valve of the veins and arteries, to the coronary arteries, to the heart muscle itself are what get filled with plaque. So my one brother in law, they came out and said he’s 80 percent clogged and, you know, he could die any minute, so we’ll keep him overnight and get this done. So we want to be able to get your cardiologist on board and you want to start to, of course, check to make sure you’re okay with him or her, that you’re going to be okay with doing exercise. We want to get your cardiovascular up. Cardiovascular means you want to get your heart rate up. Various reasons for this, because you want the vessels to expand and contract, so they don’t become like a stretched rubber band. Stretched rubber bands, if you keep them stretched out for a while, they’ll get all hard and they’re not elastic anymore. So that’s why you want to get that blood pressure up, get it to expand and contract.
Secondly, you want to think about the acidity level. How acid are inside? How much meat do you eat? How much butter, how much carbohydrates do you eat? Do you eat carbohydrates all the time? Because not only do proteins, but carbohydrates as well will create an acidic level. Acid is when you throw up in the middle of the night and it burns your throat. That’s acid.
Alkaline is on the other side and that’s when you take, if you had acid in your stomach, you take Alka Seltzer that buffers or neutralizes the acid. Stress, emotional stress, too much protein in your diet, too much carbohydrate in your diet, will create this issue, will create acidity levels. Acid then, in your system, as it’s flowing through, if your blood becomes more acidic, it creates burning, if you will, in your arteries. It becomes toxic inside. So now your body is going to try and put calcium and other plaqueing down to try and support the area that’s been irritated by the increased acidity level. They almost, they suggest that it’s almost more important to diminish your acidity level than it is to eat correct. There almost seeing more people, young guys, thin, who are having heart attacks, not obese, overweight, but young guys, who are acidic, who are stressed all the time. So monitor your stress levels as well. Drop your stress. Get a coach, have somebody coach you on dropping your amount of stress that you have. Cut out your fats, your saturated fats. Eat good fats, okay? You want to make sure you’re eating your olive oil, flax-seed oil, nuts and seeds. Those are going to be good oils, fish oil, omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids. Those also help to break down the oil. As far as treatment goes, I suggest to my patients to take Heart Flow. Heart Flow is a supplement by Innovita that supports the heart tissue. it supports the DNA to help you repair the tissue of the muscle of the heart. I suggest digestive enzymes on an empty stomach, so that you’re taking, it depends on how intense it is, but you take digestive enzymes, empty stomach versus full stomach, so that you’re not digesting what you’re eating with it, but you’re absorbing those enzymes into the system, into the blood so that those amylase, protease, and lipase can digest more effectively the proteins that are stuck in the blood. Your amylase to digest the carbs and your lipase to digest the fats and cholesterol. So if you’re eating raw foods, who have their own enzymes in them, you’re going to have less chance for this plaqueing in the heart. By taking a digestive enzyme empty stomach is very important to digest that out of the plaque and out of the heart. Heart flow, digestive enzymes, make sure you’re drinking a lot of water, basically the six essentials of life, which I’ve talked about in previous, in previous videos. What you eat, drink, exercise, rest, breathe and think. That’s the six essentials of life according to M.T. Morter. That helps tremendously. It’s a scary issue. It’s there. We all have to think about it. Get your twenty minutes a day of exercise. Get your heart rate up. Jump on your bike or run in place, jog, whatever it is to do to get your heart rate up every day. I work in intensely from 5 o’clock in the morning usually until 10 o’clock at night doing different things. I have a big garden. I see all the patients here, but I don’t get my cardio in. So after my second sister said “Hey guess what your second brother in law is getting his, you know, his heart opened tomorrow”, I said to her “You know what? I think I’m going to start to run. I need to run, not just from the heart attack, but I need to run to get my heart up, to get those vessels moving, to get the heart and the vascular system. I hope that’s been beneficial. The biggest thing I think though is decrease your stress. Watch your acidity levels. Eat more vegetables. That will help with the acidity level as well. Then pick up your, if you want to get some Heart Flow, call my office. I can send you some, and some digestive enzymes. So I hope that helps you.
Until next time, have a great, great day.
