Healthy Heart and Blood

The heart and blood are at the core of how we receive nutrients and eliminate wastes. For our hearts to function optimally, we need a wide array of vitamins, enough water, and the correct electrolytic balance with regards to sodium, potassium, magnesium and other critical minerals. 

Steady blood flow and nutrition ensure that the cells receive oxygen and other bio-compounds and can carry wastes out of the body. If you have high: blood pressure, cholesterol, C-reactive protein, or a more progressive form of heart disease, it's a warning sign, and it's time to take swift take action!

Research shows that you can prevent and reverse heart disease.  Diet, exercise and stress all play major roles.  You'll want to reduce sodium found in sauces, restaurant and processed foods, and consider an anti-inflammatory, high-antioxidant diet.  Pro-inflammatory and free-radical forming foods that cause heart disease include sugar, chemicals, artificial colors, preservatives and trans-fats, to name a few.  Through inflammation and free radical formation, these foods injure the blood vessels and cause cholesterol buildup.  This buildup causes blood pressure to go up and may lead to a heart attack or a stroke. 

However, you can prevent this through nutrition and exercise! 

Upping your antioxidants and anti-inflammatory foods protect the arteries and neutralize free radicals so they can't do damage.  Repleting your minerals can normalize arrythmias and normalize an "off-beat" heart rhythm.  Healthy fats, and alkaline foods can help thin your blood to a healthy viscosity.

If you believe you are at a high risk for heart disease or have been diagnosed with high cholesterol or high blood pressure, you will benefit from a personalize nutrition program!
