Your Health Detective: Heart Health (Cardiac)

   About 60% of the adult human body is made up of water…AND…when that water runs low, your body lets you know – often, this comes in the form of pain. That said, many people don’t make the connection that the pain (physically AND emotionally) is being caused by a form of dehydration. Because water, and the water in our cells, play such a critical role in our body’s effective functioning, it is no surprise that nearly every organ in our bodies needs to be adequately hydrated to function properly.

Many people, even some medical professionals, confuse severe dehydration with other health issues and, therefore, patients may then be misdiagnosed and prescribed unnecessary drugs or treatment, when simply optimizing cellular hydration would resolve many of their clinical complaints without the potential side effects of drugs…Click to continue reading…

Heart Attacks & The Water Component  

Because inflammation is my top specialty, when I speak about ways to live inflammation-free most people don’t believe I’ll be addressing heart attacks; but inflammation plays a crucial role. They also believe I’ll mostly deal with which foods to eat, which to avoid, and some supplements or remedies to rid themselves of their inflammation and the ensuing pain…That…however, misses another vital aspect of not only helping avoid and reverse inflammation but of supporting overall detoxification to reduce inflammation and recapture your quality of life. That missing link is WATER, WATER…yes…WATER!

To further illustrate the importance of water, I’ll discuss a scenario most people can relate to…that is…not wanting to drink water either close to or at bedtime because they will have to get-up during the night to urinate. With that said, let me give you an example that I find most people never heard, not even some health professionals:…

Contrary to what consumers and patients have been told by their doctors that…salt intake directly causes high blood pressure…the TRUTH will shock you!

FACTS…

  • Salt does NOT raise your blood pressure. In fact, contrary to popular belief, you need salt in your diet.
  • Your cells depend on sodium for vital energy, it’s a precious mineral.
  • Without it, your blood vessels constrict and tighten up…causing your pressure to rise

SCIENTISTS SPEAK OUT…

Is Salt linked to high blood pressure?

  • Not necessarily. Recently a meta-analysis of seven studies involving a total of 6,250 subjects in the American Journal of Hypertension found no strong evidence that cutting salt intake reduces the risk for heart attacks, strokes or death in people with normal or high blood pressure. NOTE: Yes, there are certain individuals who are extremely sensitive to salt or have kidney disorders that warrant reduction of sodium in their diet

Many factors affect your brain and heart health. Optimal brain health and memory can be affected by lack of sleep or a number of other reasons including genetics, level of physical activity, and lifestyle and environmental factors. Studies are now showing how nutrition is playing a key role in brain health. As the years’ progress, cell damage in the brain can occur due to oxygen molecules called free-radicals. For those affected, it can lead to memory loss and slower cognitive processing times leading to a diagnosis of disorders like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and Dementia.

Much like specific foods support heart health, brain function also relies on optimal blood flow to the brain, therefore, both need the same nutrients. Click Link Foods Your Brain & Heart NEED to read the full article.
