Preventing Heart Attack and Stroke
By Dr. Braverman

There are many health care professionals, today,
that still focus on treating disease once it is
diagnosed. They're still not getting the big
picture and miss 90 of silent disease. While
early detection is key, prevention is equally
important in guaranteeing a longer, healthier
life. By focusing on preventive treatment, my
patients don't experience unexpected illnesses or
surprise deaths.

  • Preventing Heart Attack and Stroke
  • We can now conclusively predict who is most
    likely to become the victim of a stroke or heart
    attack, even though the majority of patients who
    die of a sudden heart attack have few or no
    symptoms. For example, a major study of 28,000
    women at Boston's Brigham and Women's Hospital
    provided conclusive evidence that painless
    inflammation of heart and blood vessels is a
    major trigger of heart attacks - even more so
    than high cholesterol. Women with high levels of
    inflammation are twice as likely as those with
    high cholesterol to die from heart attacks and
    strokes.
  • The collective condition known as "cardiovascular
    disease" refers to disorders of the heart as well
    as the vascular system. Below are signs and
    symptoms that you want to be on the lookout for
    and if they occur, talk to your doctor
    immediately.
  •  
  • Signs and Symptoms of Heart Attack
  • A sudden onset of sharp pain in an arm, shoulder,
    the back, stomach, or jaw
  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest pain
  • Sudden dizzy spells
  • Breaking out in a cold sweat
  • Nausea
  • Anxiety

  • Signs and Symptoms of Stroke
  • Sudden numbness or weakness of the face, arm, or
    leg, which may affect only one side of the body
  • Sudden confusion or difficulty speaking
  • Difficulty seeing in one or both eyes
  • Loss of balance or coordination, dizziness, or
    trouble walking
  • Severe, sudden headache of unknown cause

A C-reactive protein blood test is one of the
simplest ways to identify chronic inflammation
that may be smoldering in your body. Coronary
computed tomography angiography (CTA) is another
useful technique for identifying heart
disease.?The key to prolonging good heart
health (and overall health) and continuing to
lead a vibrant and active life is the ability to
identify the aging parts of your body that may
already be experiencing the ravages of silent
disease.   Your Waistline Predicts Your Heart
Health You can never start a cardiovascular
program soon enough. In assessing your heart
attack risk, simply look at the notches on your
belt. An increasing waistline is a reliable risk
indicator of heart disease.   Bioidentical
Hormones Potential heart disease patients may
benefit from preventive hormone therapy,
especially testosterone therapy (in men).
Testosterone and other hormones strengthen the
heart muscle, which will aid in heart contraction
and improve the heart's pumping ability. DHEA may
help protect against atherosclerosis and
cardiovascular disease. Contact our office for an
appointment to discuss further hormone therapies.

Dietary Modifications For a Healthy Heart By
following a healthy lifestyle including exercise
and a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, healthy
whole grains, and plenty of low-fat protein
(including eggs, which are a perfect protein
source rich in amino acids), you may lose excess
weight that can contribute to heart disease and
stroke. You also need to eat foods that are low
in sodium, which will naturally reduce internal
swelling and water retention. For more
information on my Braverman Protocol and Rainbow
Diet, you can read my book, The Amazing Way to
Reverse Heart Disease Naturally. But a yearly
exam that includes early detection tests is a
must. At PATH Medical, we can help you with all
of your health, dietary, and supplemental
needs.   Author Bio Eric Braverman MD is a Summa
