Keep Your Heart Healthy Through Exercise And Diet

One falls victim within every 24 hrs. Every year hundreds of thousands of families are affected. Precisely a quarter of a million Americans die of heart disease annually. Advertisements, promoting exercise for outer appearances, scroll across media daily, but toning and maintenance of the heart plays a major part in longevity and overall health.
Along with diet and exercise, heart health is linked to the emotional state- stress, heartbreak, love, anxieties, etc. So, heart disease and health is largely determined by lifestyle factors. The goal for good heart health is free flowing blood circulation which entails clean, unclogged vessels, veins, arteries and steady pumping of the heart.
Besides a balanced diet and exercise, some herbs to consider are:
Cacao, also known as chocolate in its natural state, contains theobromine, a heart tonic and mild stimulant. Epicatechin, a flavonol that improves the function of the blood vessels, has also been found in cacao. When deciding  a flavonol-rich cacao treat, skip the chocolate bars at the checkout counter  and choose those that are minimally processed, without milk, dark, or say “raw cacao”.

When taking as supplement or added to food daily cayenne or capsicum, becomes the cure all for overall heart condition. It strengthens, stimulates, and tones the heart. It also supports blood circulation, and regulates palpitations. Adding cayenne to food can spice up a dish and intensify flavors. Even adding it to cacao is delicious. It can also be added to fresh vegetable juice. Ideally up to 1/2 teaspoon proves most effective. 

A clove of garlic (approximately 600 to 900 mg) prevents bad cholesterol (LDL) and raises the good (HDL). Garlic melts away the cholesterol that contributes to the clogging of arteries. Garlic has the same affect on blood pressure, preventing blood clots and improving circulation.

Hawthorn berries, rich in flavnoids, increases oxygen and blood supply as well as normalizes blood pressure. Most importantly it lowers cholesterol and fat deposits in the liver and aorta. The suggested amount of 15 to 25 drops of the tincture should be taken three times daily.

Some supplements to consider are:
Niacin (500 to 2,000 mg daily).  Red yeast rice (600 to 1,200 mg twice a day with food). Stanols and sterols (2 g daily) are plant fats that can lower LDL and block the absorption of dietary cholesterol. Coenzyme Q10 (100 to 300 mg daily).  L-carnitine (1 g twice a day). L-arginine (2,000 to 3,000 mg three times daily. Vitamin C (1,000 mg daily in two doses).  Nattokinase 2,000 and Vitamin K-2  D-ribose.

Blackbelt Gazette: Diabetes Numbers Grow More And More Each Year

If you or a loved one have not been diagnosed with diabetes, the disturbing statistics invoke fear of the possibility. The American Diabetes Association reported that 7.8% of America’s population had diabetes in 2007. Each year 1.6 million are diagnosed.

Diabetes is a gateway to various complications such as heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, blindness, kidney disease, neuropathy disease (nervous system), and amputation. Although diabetics are high risk for such complications, the disease itself is preventive and in many cases reversible.

Diabetics are unable to properly produce or use insulin (the hormone regulates sugar out of the blood and into the cells). The pancreas is responsible for producing insulin. When insulin production malfunctions blood-sugar levels spike. This could lead to what is known as a diabetic coma or even death.

Juvenile diabetes, developed between childhood and early adulthood, is classified as Type I diabetes or insulin dependent. Type II diabetes, non-insulin-dependent, typically occurs in adults after the age of forty and those overweight. Type II diabetes is a lifestyle-related disease and can be controlled and even reversed. Your family practitioner can determine insulin needs and diet adjustments.

Limiting foods high in carbohydrates (synonymous with sugar) will aid in regulating insulin levels. High-carbohydrate foods are starchy foods like breads, pastas, rice, chips, potatoes, and sweets. Adding more fresh vegetables and proteins from legumes/beans, nuts, and even fish is also beneficial.

Although legumes contain starch, they are also rich in protein and fiber which help to balance blood sugar. As fiber swells in the digestive tract, it slows down the absorption of sugar. Psyllium is a bulk fiber that can be taken before each meal. Ways to incorporate beans are with chili, burritos, and adding chickpeas/kidney beans to salads.

Exercise such as walking plays a key role not only in weight loss and maintenance but also in lowing blood sugar and promoting good circulation.  

Blood vessels can be damaged by excess sugars and fat in the blood stream, making it important for diabetics to maintain a healthy blood circulation. Good blood circulation ensures that oxygen reaches all organs. Oxygen prevents complications such as kidney disease, blindness, etc.

Foods that have blue and purple pigments, known as anthocyanosides, such as blueberries and bilberries, help to improve circulation and protect blood vessel walls.

For borderline diabetics, the herb golden seal not only fights infections but lowers blood sugar levels. While using golden seal it is best to work closely with your health practitioner to monitor and adjust your insulin requirement.  

Blackbelt Gazette: A Look At Good Cholesterol And Bad Cholesterol

Despite its bad reputation, cholesterol is necessary for various body functions such as hormone regulation; vitamin D; bile; sebum; and nerves. The liver is responsible for making the 1,000 milligrams of cholesterol we need daily.  Because the body produces cholesterol on its own it is advised to limit daily consumption of cholesterol from food to 300 milligrams (one egg= 266 mg).

 Cholesterol’s bad reputation is a result of the escalating number of individuals with atherosclerosis. This artery disease causes heart attacks. When lipid materials (fat) accumulate in the inner walls of the arteries, this build up of plague, limits blood flow, and raises blood pressure which in turn increases the risk of heart attacks.  
The terms good cholesterol  or HDL (high-density lipoprotein) and bad cholesterol or LDL (low-density lipoprotein) are used to determine the level of cholesterol present in the body . The HDL is the cholesterol that rapidly travels to and from the liver to the blood stream breaking down fats and utilizing them for necessary functions. However, LDL is sluggish and makes frequent trips to the liver which drops cholesterol (which is basically fat) during its trip. These drops build up in the artery walls and harden, and then cause blockage.

In the family unit, it is presumed that if the parent (s) has high cholesterol the children will as well. This also suggests that adult heart diseases or cardiovascular diseases can be prevented later in life when a well balanced diet and regular exercise is incorporated during childhood. Cholesterol is correlated with obesity and inactivity as well.

Choosing a diet that is no more than 30 percent total calories from fat is one focus to control cholesterol levels. So, fat eaten in adequate portions is essential. Diets high in saturated fat raise cholesterol.
Foods that increase high levels of LDL are: animal fats like, butter, cheese, eggs and meat; margarine; tropical oils likes coconut and palm oil. Of course trans fat should be avoided at all cost as well as hydrogenated oil often found in shelf food like peanut butter, crackers, box dinners, etc. The best cooking oils are olive, peanut, and canola which are polyunsaturated.

To stabilize cholesterol levels it is advised to increase exercise, vitamin C and dietary fiber. Smokers are also at high risk, so quitting the habit will also lower levels.

An herbal supplement to consider is Guggul. It cleanses the circulatory system by removing the fat from the arteries. Eliminate fat from with the body with fiber supplements such as psyllium hulls, apple pectin, and oat bran.

Blackbelt Gazette: Knowing what to eat can help relieve pain, stress (Fibromyalgia)

Pain and the accompaniment of stress associated with fibromyalgia are only understood by its victims. Ninety percent affected by fibromyalgia are women. The link between fibromyalgia and a psychological disorder were halted by a team of researchers at the Univeristy of Alabama. They proved that fibromyalgia is caused by a disruption of blood flow to the parts of the brain that respond to pain which in turn affects the central nervous system.
Stress which attacks the body’s immune system appears to be one of the main triggers. A weaken immune system is susceptible to a number of diseases brought on by bacteria and virus. The pain of fibromyalgia is present not only in the muscles but also the stomach, hips, neck, lower back, and insomnia.
Some natural therapies to relieve fibromyalgia concentrate on four major systems: structural, nervous, digestive, and immune.
The structural system includes bones, muscles, and connective tissues. Part of the makeup of muscles is magnesium and supplementing for this deficiency can relax the muscles muscles can improve blood circulation which gives all around relief (also beneficial for PMS, muscle cramps, headaches).  Magnesium combined with malic acid is a winning combination. Malic acid decreases the affects of the aluminum absorbed in the body. Although magnesium relaxes muscles the absorption is hindered by the consumption of refined flour found in pasta, breads, pastries, etc as well as phosphorous found in soft drinks. The combination of magnesium and malic acid encourages the synthesis of ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) which is needed for a balanced metabolism.
The nervous system is relaxed when B vitamins are present. The brain uses a various B vitamins to combat stress and pain. Feeding the brain ginkgo biloba will also increase the supply of blood to the brain.
A properly functioning digestive system will enhance the absorption of nutrients, aiding to the elimination of stress and pain. Liquid aloe vera and/or chlorophyll can cleanse the bowels along with papaya enzymes which aid digestion.
For  immediate, pain relief, two capsules of uña de gato (cat’s claw) works as fast as aspirin, approximately 20 minutes. This herbal supplement can be taken three times a day as needed. When choosing the specie of cat’s claw, note that uncaria tomentosa is the most potent.
For immune system, besides cat’s claw, supplements and herbs to consider are Siberian ginseng, parsley, red clover, wheat grass, horseradish, beta carotene, and rose hips.
Balancing alkaline (mainly green vegetables) and acidic foods (meat, cheese, breads) is also a big help. Reflexology, acupressure, and massages have also been suggested to relax muscles
