“..What Causes Arrhythmia?
Arrhythmias are primarily the result of a disturbance in the electrical system within the heart that stimulates the heart to beat. Arrhythmias can also occur when sets of heart muscles develop their own beat. Magnesium and potassium deficiencies are well-known nutritionally related causes of arrhythmia….”
Atherosclerosis – American Heart Association heart.org
“..The type of artery affected and where the plaque develops varies with each person. Plaque may partially or totally block blood flow through a large or medium-sized artery in the heart, brain, pelvis, legs, arms or kidneys. When this happens, various diseases may result. These include:
coronary heart disease (plaque in arteries in or leading to the heart),
angina (chest pain from reduced blood flow in arteries supplying the heart muscle),
carotid artery disease (plaque in neck arteries that supply blood to the brain),
peripheral artery disease (PAD; plaque in arteries of the extremities, especially the legs) and
chronic kidney disease…”
Atherosclerosis: Types, Causes & Symptoms – Healthline healthline.com
“..Atherosclerosis is a narrowing of the arteries caused by a buildup of plaque. It’s also called arteriosclerosis or hardening of the arteries. Arteries are the blood vessels that carry oxygen and nutrients from your heart to the rest of your body. ..
What are the types of atherosclerosis?
Atherosclerosis occurs when fat, cholesterol, and calcium harden in your arteries. Atherosclerosis can occur in an artery located anywhere in your body, including your heart, legs, and kidneys.
Atherosclerosis can cause the following diseases:

Cardiologists now use advanced imaging and blood tests that give a much more accurate assessment of heart attack risk. “These tests are the best ways to tell who is in danger, because they can catch cardiovascular disease 20 to 30 years before it gets severe enough to cause a heart attack or stroke,” says Arthur Agatston, MD, an early champion of many of them…”
Lipid Profile: The Test | Lipid Profile At a Glance … – Lab Tests Online labtestsonline.org
“The lipid profile is used as part of a cardiac risk assessment to help determine an individual’s risk of heart disease and to help make decisions about what treatment may be best if there is borderline or high risk.
Lipids are a group of fats and fat-like substances that are important constituents of cells and sources of energy. Monitoring and maintaining healthy levels of these lipids is important in staying healthy. (For more on lipids, see the “What is being tested?” section.)
The results of the lipid profile are considered along with other known risk factors of heart disease to develop a plan of treatment and follow-up. Depending on the results and other risk factors, treatment options may involve lifestyle changes such as diet and exercise or lipid-lowering medications such as statins.
A lipid profile typically includes:…
Use of the updated risk calculator and guidelines remains controversial. Many still use the older guidelines from the NCEP Adult Treatment Panel III to evaluate lipid levels and CVD risk:
Optimal: Less than 100 mg/dL (2.59 mmol/L); for those with known disease (ASCVD or diabetes), less than 70 mg/dL (1.81 mmol/L) is optimal
Near/above optimal: 100-129 mg/dL (2.59-3.34 mmol/L)
Borderline high: 130-159 mg/dL (3.37-4.12 mmol/L)
High: 160-189 mg/dL (4.15-4.90 mmol/L)
Very high: Greater than 190 mg/dL (4.90 mmol/L)
Desirable: Less than 200 mg/dL (5.18 mmol/L)
Borderline high: 200-239 mg/dL (5.18 to 6.18 mmol/L)
High: 240 mg/dL (6.22 mmol/L) or higher
Low level, increased risk: Less than 40 mg/dL (1.0 mmol/L) for men and less than 50 mg/dL (1.3 mmol/L) for women
Average level, average risk: 40-50 mg/dL (1.0-1.3 mmol/L) for men and between 50-59 mg/dl (1.3-1.5 mmol/L) for women
High level, less than average risk: 60 mg/dL (1.55 mmol/L) or higher for both men and women
Desirable: Less than 150 mg/dL (1.70 mmol/L)
Borderline high: 150-199 mg/dL(1.7-2.2 mmol/L)
High: 200-499 mg/dL (2.3-5.6 mmol/L)
Very high: Greater than 500 mg/dL (5.6 mmol/L)

You don’t need a doctor to interpret a lipid panel August 25, 2015Home By Ashley Rekem chronicconditions.bangordailynews.com
“..The traditional lipid panel does have its limitations. It provides a look at triglyceride levels, which is important, but does not show the size and number of the lipoproteins traveling in the blood. LDL and HDL are lipoproteins that shuttle a variety of fats. The lipid panel only measures the amount of cholesterol they contain.There are sophisticated lipoprotein tests like the NMR lipid profile test that are much more extensive in this regard.
I would like the get an NMR test at some point, but the standard lipid panel has still proven useful to me, and is also quite cheap to have done at a direct lab service…”

10 Foods to Boost Nitric Oxide thedrswolfson.com
“..In short, nitric oxide can reduce blood pressure, prevent heart artery blockage, and prevent stroke. So let’s talk about 10 food items that can boost your nitric oxide levels AND improve your health.
Guess what, chocolate is healthy. Well, that is only partially true, but at least we got your attention. The raw cacao bean increases nitric oxide and is loaded with antioxidants. Cacao can lower blood pressure and markers of inflammation. Unfortunately, chocolate is loaded with sugar. Save it for special occasions and skip the milk chocolate. Only go for the dairy-free dark variety. I like to add raw cacao to my breakfast “cereal” of nuts and seeds along with coconut flakes and homemade nut milk.
… and grapefruit contain high amounts of vitamin C, which has been shown to protect your precious nitric oxide molecules from free radical damage. Vitamin C from any source raises levels of nitric oxide synthase, the enzyme that converts L-arginine into nitric oxide. Vitamin C is also a co-factor in reducing dietary nitrite to nitric oxide. Add citrus peel is another excellent way to boost NO. …
This delicious fruit boosts nitric oxide and is a tremendous anti-inflammatory. It also reduces oxidative stress, a leading factor in the production of coronary artery disease. Polyphenols in the pomegranate assist in converting dietary nitrite to nitric oxide. These same polyphenols block nitric oxide from converting back to nitrite.
Pomegranate inhibits the formation of monocyte chemoattractant protein, a molecule that recruits inflammatory cells to the blood vessel lining. This is a major factor in coronary artery disease. Cranberries and other berries would have similar benefits. Pomegranate juice powder is found in our Vessel Support.
Most people know that walnuts are high in heart healthy vitamin E. But because of their high amount of L-arginine, walnuts keep the blood vessels running freely. Interestingly, walnuts look a lot like the human brain, so eat them for brain health as well. Most other nuts are a good source of arginine. Soak your nuts for six hours prior to using. Try out this Organic Walnuts.
Also known, as rocket lettuce, arugula is the highest source of nitrates known. This bitter green is perfect in salads or sautéed with other veggies. We mix with grilled onions and use on top of our grass-fed burgers. I usually eat it straight out of the bag in handfuls.
… This leafy green is packed with nutrients, and of course, nitrates. Add to salads, soups, sautéed or just straight out of the garden.
Watermelon is loaded with the amino acid, L-citrulline, which gets converted into L-arginine and ultimately nitric oxide. So many people reach for L-arginine supplements, but the body does not absorb it well. L-citrulline is easy absorbed.
Beetroot is loaded with nitrates. There are plenty of studies that confirm this food as a vasodilator which lowers blood pressure. Also, beets are an excellent source of anti-oxidants and contain betalains, which are anti-inflammatory. Check out our organic beetroot powder here.
Meat and Seafood
Grass-fed meat and wild seafood are a wonderful source of CoQ10. This nutrient is a necessary co-factor to raise nitric oxide. Liver and other organs contain the highest amount of CoQ10. Statin drugs lower CoQ10 by 40%!
Garlic does not contain much in the way of nitrates, however it jump-starts their production by boosting the enzyme nitric oxide synthase (NOS). NOS converts L-arginine into nitric oxide in the presence of other cofactors such as vitamin B2 and B3. Studies also confirm that garlic supplements lower blood pressure and have many more benefits.

Exercises For Improving Blood Circulation In Legs
Dr Sam Robbins

See how to dramatically and naturally, improve your blood flow and circulation in 30 days or less:
“..Exercises Walking I think walking is one of the best exercises you can do and almost anyone can do it, any where, any time of the day and it doesn’t cost you anything. Ideally you would walk outside in fresh air if possible. First thing morning and/or late evening are good times but, whenever you can is a better than nothing. To start, all you need is about 15 minutes, 3x weekly. Ideally you would work up to daily walks of about 30 minutes. And if you have pain or trouble walking, even 3 minutes is a good start. Try your best to walk just a little bit every single day. Rebounder A rebounder is basically a mini trampoline. I like this because it is very low impact and super easy on your joints. It also helps clean your lymph nodes, which helps prevent many cancers and illnesses. I put mine in front of the TV while watching a favorite show and do it for about 10-20 minutes daily. You don’t need much at all. By the way, you’re not trying to jump high on it and try to touch the ceiling. You only need to go up a few inches. Just enough for your toes to be off the roubound. It’s just a light up and down motion. Again, almost anyone can do it, any time and anyplace. You can even travel with it. Body Weight Squats This last exercise is great for building and strengthening your entire lower body … From your ankles to your leg muscles and all the way to your lower back and stomach. You can simply use your own bodyweight and do sets of about 15-20 repetitions. Of course, if you’re first starting out, simply doing even 2-3 comfortable repetitions is a great start. Go down as far your comfortable and without pain. Over time, as you get stronger and more flexible, you can do more repetitions and go deeper. Ideally, you would do maybe 1 set of 15 or more repetition, 2-3x daily. Maybe in the morning, noon and night time. ..”

Sleep with the head of your bed raised up to 6 inches. This can increase the amount of blood available to your legs while you sleep and may reduce your leg pain.
Avoid the cold. Cold temperatures make your blood vessels constrict and can make your symptoms worse. Dress warmly if you can’t stay out of the cold.
Ask about L-arginine supplements. Oral doses of 10 grams per day or less for up to six months may be beneficial. (31) Having enough arginine compounds in the blood may help improve tissue function and reduce the chances of certain PVD/PAD complications, including death. (32)
Ask about oral mesoglycan supplements. In a study that gave 50 milligrams of mesoglycan by mouth twice per day for two months, then stopped for two months, then started at the same dose again for two months, people taking mesoglycan had improvements in the damage to their blood vessels and their symptoms compared to people who didn’t take the supplement. (33) In another study, patients took aspirin and nothing, or aspirin and mesoglycan (30 mg/day injections for three weeks, then 100 mg/day by mouth for 20 weeks). People who took mesoglycan and aspirin were more likely to have symptom and quality of life improvements during the study. (34)
Can you reverse peripheral artery disease?
In many cases, yes! But it takes work and time, and it might not happen for people with advanced disease. Exercise and other lifestyle changes can dramatically slow the progression of plaque buildup and blood vessel damage. In some cases, the overall improvement in health helps your body repair the damage, improve circulation, and reverse the course of the disease. (35)..’

Exercising With Heart Disease
American Council on Exercise by American Council on Exercise

“..Be cautious about engaging in vigorous physical activity. If you plan to begin a vigorous program, discuss it thoroughly with your physician. Also be sure to complete an exercise stress test first.
Avoid strenuous activity in extreme environmental conditions. Vigorous exercise in the cold (such as snow shoveling) is associated with MI. Hot conditions require a dramatic increase in the heart’s workload. High altitude increases demands on the heart, particularly for individuals who are not acclimatized.
Inform your trainer and physician if you have any abnormal signs or symptoms before, during or after exercise. These include chest pain, extreme fatigue, indigestion or heartburn, excessive breathlessness, ear or neck pain, upper respiratory tract infection, dizziness or racing heart and severe headache…”
Exercise Guidelines For Individuals With Heart Disease shapingconcepts.com
Start up slowly with walking or other low-intensity aerobic exercise for anywhere between 12 to 30 minutes daily. You’ll want to keep yourself in an aerobic state by maintaining a low heart rate, ideally at 50-55% of your max heart rate.
Make sure that you are properly hydrated and aren’t exercising in extreme cold or heat. The combination of overexertion plus extreme temperatures (such as exercising in the heat of the day) is a primary cause for sudden cardiac arrest.
Building a target heart rate zone is an excellent tool to make sure you don’t overdo it while exercising. However, for exercisers with CHD it’s important to take into consideration whether or not you are on a beta blocker.
If you are, then you’ll want to consult with your doctor or cardiologist and perhaps get a sub-max exercise test (stress test) while you are taking the medicine.
This is because beta blockers lower heart rate and essentially affect heart rate responses in exercise. This means you don’t really know if you are in the right zone and could be taxing the heart more than you want to be.
But if you undergo a stress test where you’ve taken your beta blocker, you’ll have a more accurate account for what your ideal heart rate range should be.
If you don’t take a beta blocker, you can estimate your max heart rate by subtracting your age from 208 (208-age = max heart rate).
Another approach can be to use a scale of ratings of perceived exertion, also known as RPE’s. Using this scale of 6-20, 6 approximating about how you would feel just sitting in a chair and 20 being the hardest thing you’ve ever done.
Most experts agree that individuals with heart disease should focus on an intensity within the range of 11-15.
The phrases that correspond to this range are:
11 – fairly light
13 – somewhat hard
15 > – hard…”

How I cured my arrhythmia – medical documentation available, from youtube.com
“Uploaded on Aug 11, 2011
You can review the medical documentation and read full story here: http://www.mcarticles.com/a/how-i-cur…
Do you trust the doctors to help you whenever you have a health problem? Well, what if they can’t? This is how my story begins.
I’ve had arrhythmia for almost a decade. The truth is it didn’t bother me in everyday life, but I still wanted to get rid of it because it is not a natural state of the body and I didn’t want it to become a more serious problem in the future.
So I went to the doctor who tried a few pills on me, none of which worked. Then they sent me to another doctor who also couldn’t do anything about it.
Frustrated as I was – I thought — if the doctors can’t do anything about it I’ll try to cure it on my own. I started by reading about nutrition and progressively eliminating certain foods from my diet which were known to cause arrhythmia. Let me tell you: aspartame, margarine, MSG and so on — all of these are very bad for your health.
After two years of such regime I repeated the tests. And you know what — ma arrhythmia was gone. I’m as healthy as any normal person.
If you want to read the whole story along with complete medical documentation, follow the link below.
My advice to everybody would be: if your medication just isn’t cutting it for you, try altering your diet like I did. Perhaps after some time you won’t need the medication at all.
Good luck to all of you! Bye!”
