You are what you eat and how you care for yourself. Let’s get to the ‘Heart’ of the matter.

Napping regularly linked to high blood pressure and stroke

People who often nap have a greater chance of developing high blood pressure and having a stroke, a large new study has found.

This may be because, although taking a nap itself is not harmful, many people who take naps may do so because of poor sleep at night. Poor sleep at night is associated with poorer health, and naps are not enough to make up for that,” Continue reading

How does caffeine reduce heart disease risk?

Cardiovascular disease, also known as heart disease, affects the body’s heart and blood vessels. An estimated 18.2 million adults aged 20 years and older have coronary artery disease in the United States.

About 361,000 people in the U.S. died in 2019 from coronary heart disease, with 20% of deaths occurring in adults under 65 years. Coronary heart disease occurs when fatty deposits or plaques consisting of cholesterol, calcium, and fibrin — a substance that causes blood clotting — accumulate in blood vessels. Continue reading

How Stress Affects Your Body, From Your Brain to Your Digestive System

It’s one thing to feel occasional stress. But when you’re constantly under pressure and have no way to cope, your risk of developing serious illness climbs. Here’s what you need to know about the long-term effects of living a stressed-out life.

If you’ve ever felt stressed out (and who hasn’t?), you already know that being under pressure can affect your body, either by causing a headache, muscle tightness, or flutters in your chest; making you feel down in the dumps; or leaving you ravenous for chocolate or robbed of all appetite.

But these stress symptoms are merely the signals of the deeper impact that chronic stress can have on every organ and system in your body, from your nervous and circulatory systems to your digestive and immune systems. Continue reading

Loudon: The Evidence-Based Science Behind Bioelectric Nutrition

It is well known now that most body cells are controlled by electromagnetic waves (EMWs). Scientists say that both sound and visible light are deciphered with different parts of the body’s electromagnetic system. Different cell types and organs also have different electromagnetic frequencies. This means that the electrical nature of the body runs on electromagnetic waves. The brain has even been proven to transmit information by frequency modulation (FM).

The way that the brain neurons and axons process information is by bioelectric signals called (action potentials). Waves from light and sound carry information that has also different conduction properties of the electromagnetic system. The amazing body has electromagnetic frequencies even in the interstitial muscle fibers and enzymes that carry these bioelectric signals. Continue reading

The Twelve Commandments of Nutritional Disease Therapy

NOTE: The following was submitted to us by the author, Merle E. Loudon, B.S., D.D.S. in January of this year. Somehow it was lost in the shuffle – and then I had to face by own physical issues later in the year. I am working this weekend to get caught up with much that has been lost or put to the side during 2021 – but the following could not be lost by posting it on it’s original date. Pay attention – and get healthy! ~ Editor

Aspirin Use to Prevent 1st Heart Attack or Stroke Should Be Curtailed, U.S. Panel Says

Adults at high risk for cardiovascular disease may face serious side effects if they start a daily regimen of low-dose aspirin.

Doctors would be discouraged from starting patients on a daily dose of baby aspirin to prevent heart attack or stroke under proposed new guidelines.

Doctors should no longer routinely start most people who are at high risk of heart disease on a daily regimen of low-dose aspirin, according to new draft guidelines by a U.S. panel of experts.

The proposed recommendation is based on mounting evidence that the risk of serious side effects far outweighs the benefit of what was once considered a remarkably cheap weapon in the fight against heart disease. Continue reading

Doctor: Heart Failure From MRNA Jabs “Will KILL Most People

Dr Charles Hoffe MD, in his latest update of July 6, 2021 is reporting on the disturbing findings in his patients. He says the mRNA vaccines are plugging up thousands of tiny capillaries in the blood of those who took the ‘vaccine.’ Most will die in a few short years from heart failure. Continue reading

The Cholesterol Myth

Diet has hardly any effect on your cholesterol level; the drugs that can lower it often have serious or fatal side effects; and there is no evidence at all that lowering your cholesterol level will lengthen your life.

One morning in early October of 1987 the U.S. health authorities announced that 25 percent of the adult population had a dangerous condition requiring medical treatment. Since there were no symptoms, it would be necessary to screen the entire population to identify those in danger. More than half of those screened would be dispatched to their physicians for medical tests and evaluation. Then for one out of four adults treatment would begin. The first step would be a strict diet under medical supervision. If within three months the dieting had not achieved specified results that could be verified by laboratory tests, a more severe diet would be imposed. The final step for many patients would be powerful drugs to be taken for the rest of their lives… Continue reading

The Cholesterol Diet

Editor’s NOTE: What follows below was originally published in a British magazine some years back and as usual with this type of post – the reference to cholesterol always comes to the forefront. Given our subsequent post – The Cholesterol Myth we invite you to enjoy the food and dietary recommendations within this column, but also pay close attention to the “Myths” which have been perpetrated for many years. ~ Ed

Cholesterol is a chemical expressed by the along with, on the most suitable quantity, is known as a very important a natural part of some of our techniques. Cholesterol is essential in order to just about every single cellular phone, although an undesirable healthy eating plan might triggers people to make lots of cholesterol which in turn can lead to dangerous health problems as well as passing away.

The serious Connection Between Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, Heart Disease and Cancer

There are many common threads that are related to these three blood diseases. They involve serious conditions involving the diet, blood viscosity, artery and vein constrictions. All three of these diseases can at times culminate in serious blood clotting conditions.

The treatments for these diseases varies widely, and many physicians bring the blood pressure down with drugs, while some alternative physicians use dietary and supplement treatments, and special blood thinning procedures. Continue reading

Your Body Is ACIDIC: 10 Simple ways to ALKALIZE your body

Most of us who are reading this most probably have unhealthy levels of acidity in their bodies. This is as a result of the high tech foods that we put into our bodies every day. These foods have been so processed that there are hardly any nutrients left in the foods. Then as if to deliberately make matters worse, these over-processed foods have been stuffed with all kinds of artificial or lab-created nutrient chemicals that do more harm to our bodies than good. All these are the causative agents of a high acid body that can become a perfect ground for diabetes, obesity, and cancers. Continue reading
