Cardiovascular disease generally refers to conditions that involve narrowed or blocked blood vessels that can lead to a heart attack, chest pain (angina) or stroke. Other heart conditions, such as those that affect your heart’s muscle, valves or rhythm, also are considered forms of heart disease.
Hypertension is marked by the high rate of force at which blood flows through the arteries – i.e. high blood pressure. Hypertension leads to even more severe problems, including heart attack, stroke and kidney failure. Regulating blood pressure and bringing it back down to an acceptable and healthy Level, is thus extremely critical.
A startling revelation – over 17 million people die from heart disease every year, making it the #1 cause of death worldwide! A huge number of those deaths occur by heart attack, which occurs: when blood circulation to the heart is interrupted, causing damage to the heart muscle (the medical term is coronary thrombosis). Even if the patient survives the initial attack, the rate of recurrence is disturbingly high!
While there are a few hallmark symptoms of heart disease, the warning signs for a heart attack vary depending on age, gender and lifestyle. Our approach is based upon identifying all of the issues responsible for arterial narrowing, which includes: malnutrition, over-proteinization, an excess of sugar in the diet, along with high toxicity levels. We have also found ways to increase the oxygen uptake into the heart cell muscles: as of course lack of oxygen is what ultimately occurs in a heart attack.
People who come to Swiss Biological Medicine Center, suffering from coronary heart diseases, embark on an individual treatment plan, which not only makes their heart stronger, but enables them to experience an all-around healthier and a more active live, as they’d previously enjoyed.
Such as a heart attack: a stroke represents the equivalent “brain attack”. With a stroke, oxygen to the brain gets cut off and brain cells immediately begin to die. As a result, depending on what parts of the brain are affected, patients can lose certain functional abilities. Memory, muscle control, speech, as well as vision all may be impaired.
Hyperlipidemia is an umbrella term for those conditions characterized by an excessive amount of fats or lipids in the blood. From the practical point of view, for most patients hyperlipidemia is just the medical term for high cholesterol.
Approaching the problem of hyperlipidemia or high cholesterol holistically: by contrast, we look to the most fundamental issues influencing the patient’s lipid levels. Problems metabolizing fats often stem from disturbances in the digestive tract and its consequences are: inability to absorb lipids properly.
The biological approach is therefore: to start with the basics: nutrition and lifestyle. Unhealthy amounts of saturated fats most definitely trigger the overproduction of cholesterol. So we first address for a diet. Establishing a strict plan for healthier, low-fat nutritional practices, underpins our recovery plan. We also improve the digestion to resolve the issue of lipid absorption.
