Why Coronary Artery Disease is Common and What to do About it
Did you know that coronary artery disease is the most common type of heart disease in the United States?
This type of heart disease specifically affects the arteries of the heart.
There are many reasons that this is the most common type of heart disease in the U.S.
Today, this article will discuss the problem of coronary artery disease in the U.S., and how those affected by it can begin to feel better with the help of a revolutionary therapy that is sweeping the country.
The Causes of Coronary Artery Disease and Symptoms
There are numerous causes of heart disease.
The United States has ranked heart disease as the number one cause of death.
It seems that most of the medical research today is dedicated to cancer.
Heart disease is deserving of the same level of research due to the high rate of mortality.
What is the cause of coronary artery disease?
- Diet. This is probably the first and foremost reason heart disease ranks as number one in the United States. The frequent visits to fast food establishments and eating high-carb, high fat snacks and meals pose this deadly threat. The first course of action in conventional medicine is to prescribe medication. The second course of action is focused on diet. There is rarely a discussion of natural therapies of any kind.
- Stress. Stress is a silent killer. High levels of stress for any period of time are not good for the body, but prolonged periods of stress are hard on the heart. The source of stress is not important, but it is urgent to begin to find healthy ways to cope with stress.
- Buildup of plaque in the arteries. Cholesterol is a troubling reason for the buildup of plaque in the walls of the arteries, but medication can also be a cause. The fact that medication of any kind can cause plaque to build up in the walls of your arteries gets little attention. This is because conventional medicine focuses on pushing prescriptions to resolve medical problems. It is rarely discussed in conventional medicine, but when visiting a naturopathic physician, they are likely to mention to you that the continued use of prescription medications and the use of over-the-counter remedies can cause a buildup of plaque in the arteries. This also occurs in your intestines, leading to further health problems. Plaque prevents proper blood flow, and over time this damages your blood vessels, arteries, and ultimately your heart.
It is okay to seek changes in your diet first.
However, there is one therapy that is now helping those with heart disease to live a happier and healthier life.
PEMF therapy has stepped up to the plate to help those with heart disease improve their lives and possibly reverse heart disease altogether.
One of the primary reasons people use PEMF devices is to reduce stress.
Reducing stress is vital to your overall health, but when stress is not dealt with in a healthy manner, it can begin to cause heart damage.
Whether your stress is work related or it is related to something personal in your life, using PEMF therapy for just 18 to 10 minutes twice a day can be helpful.
Getting the body to a state of rest and quiet and recharging your cells can have a dramatic impact on your overall health.
Using a PEMF device consistently can keep the body in a healthy state and reduce stress.
What other research for coronary artery disease shows that PEMF therapy is beneficial?
A study that was conducted on rats with a history of myocardial infarction (MI), showed that continued use of PEMF therapy improved overall cardiac function.
When therapy was administered four sessions per day for 8 minutes at 3Hz, the rats also exhibited improved cardiac systolic function.
Additionally, the capillaries of those same rats became more dense and healthy.
Other studies conducted for the purpose of vascular health have shown that PEMF therapy also improves the condition of veins and blood vessels.
The hope is that in the future, PEMF therapy can be prescribed in the early stages with the goal of improving or ultimately correcting the problems that lead to a heart attack.
If the occurrences of heart attacks can be reduced, there is significant hope that PEMF therapy could become the modality of choice.
As researchers continue to use PEMF and look for answers, there is hope that more studies can be conducted with greater and more specific outcomes in cases of “coronary artery disease”.
Hope for Those with Coronary Artery Disease
The FDA has already approved the use of PEMF therapy for various health conditions.
Why isn’t it being prescribed?
Most doctors still have no idea what this therapy is.
Because the nature of this therapy is considered holistic, you will be told by doctors who do know about it there are not enough studies to prove the efficacy of PEMF devices.
Although the research conducted in the U.S. may be somewhat limited, there are thousands of studies that have been conducted in Europe.
The very first approval by the FDA was given in 1979 for the healing of non-union fractures.
It was later approved for the treatment of depression and anxiety, as well as for the treatment of brain cancer.
There are enough studies to show that there is hope for those who suffer from other ailments and chronic illnesses.
The time to try a PEMF device is now, so you can get started as quickly as possible.
There are plenty of devices to choose from so it’s wise to research online as much as you can before you choose one.
Consistent use of a PEMF device can change your life, and it could improve the quality of life for those with coronary artery disease.
