More and more people are turning to natural health care. They’re realizing that there is a lot that the doctors and the hospitals don’t want the general population to know. Knowing would mean that we’d be spending more money on natural cures and less money on their overpriced medical care.
Your heart, along with other vital organs throughout your body, need a constant supply of oxygen. Everything throughout your body also needs nutrients. Without nutrients and oxygen, you can develop coronary heart disease. Below are some herbal and natural remedies that you can use for your overall heart care.
Ginger has an almost tonic-like effect on your heart. It lowers cholesterol and inhibits blood platelet collection. Some experts suggest that eating just a little bit of finger each day will help to prevent a heart attack.
Next on the list is Arjuna. Arjuna is a coronary vasodilator. That means that it protects your heart, strengthens its circulation while maintaining the heart tone overall. It is very useful in stopping bleeding and promoting healing after a heart attack.
Garlic is the next miracle or wonder drug for your heart. Did you know that if you have a problem with aspirin, such as an allergic reaction or you are concerned about taking aspirin for your heart in general, you can take garlic supplements instead and they are just as effective, if not more effective, than aspirin. If you must take aspirin, by the way, you can take baby aspirin. Research studies have shown that taking a smaller dose is just as effective.
Garlic and garlic supplements can play a big role in reducing cholesterol levels. Garlic prevents blood clots and can destroy plaque. In one study, people who suffered from high blood pressure were given one clove of garlic a day over a 12-week period. Their diastolic blood pressure and cholesterol levels were reduced significantly.
Ashwagandha is a very unique herb with stress-relieving qualities. It can help the body lead to better physical fitness and health while helping the user cope with life’s daily stress better. It’s specifically beneficial for stress-related disorders, such as arthritis, hypertension and diabetes.
Guggul has been proven to lower blood-fat levels while raising levels of HDL, which is the good cholesterol.
One of the best methods or tools you have is prevention. By keeping your blood pressure and cholesterol levels at healthy levels, you are protecting your heart and overall body. You are also avoiding diabetes and other serious health-related issues. Even if you develop a condition, like diabetes, it can be controlled or held at bay with some healthy lifestyle changes. Following a healthy diet and daily exercise routine, which keeps you physically active, will help you to stay healthy and avoid more serious health problems.
