Everything about Heart Disease Cardiovascular Disease

Heart Disease Cardiovascular Disease.  In this episode of Dr. Andy’s Wellness Corner, Dr. Andy delves into one of the nation’s top killers.  Of course, that’s heart and cardiovascular disease.  In fact, Dr. Andy starts by defining these diseases.  He then goes into its prevalence both nationwide and in Washington state.  Additionally this also includes projections from the CDC as to where this disease is headed by 2030.

After an overview of some basic anatomy, Dr. Andy defines cardiovascular disease.  Understanding the anatomy is necessary to understand the nature of blood vessel problems.  This includes risk factors, common causes, and common treatments.  And of course, Dr. Andy goes into the common natural approaches to heart and vascular health as well as the enzyme nutrition approach.

Perhaps the most important thing Dr. Andy covers in this airing is the cholesterol myth.  Dr. Andy sites several large research projects that show there is no relationship between high cholesterol and heart disease.  In fact low cholesterol can cause some serious health hazards including cancer and a shorter life span according to some brand new research.  Of course Dr. Andy talks about the real problem, and why some health experts blame cholesterol.  Then Dr. Andy exposes the truth about how experts measure cholesterol, why it’s inaccurate, and how scientists make false assumptions to measure it.

Lastly, Dr. Andy explains how certain forms of heart disease can lead to heart failure.  Once that occurs he reveals the common necessary medical approach.  If you or a loved one suffers from heart disease, this is a must listen episode!

When Fish Oil is unhealthy.  In my last article, I talked about the cholesterol myth.  As a matter of fact I actually cited research showing that those with lower cholesterol have shorter life spans.  But I also promised I would get into fish oils.  Specifically when they are useful and when they are harmful.  So here it goes, as promised.

Why Fatty Acids are Beneficial

First, let’s begin by going over types of fatty acids found in fish oils.  The typical ones are omega3’s, omega 6’s and omega 9’s.  Now the first thing you need to know is regarding Omega 9’s.  Omega 9’s are non-essential.  This means your body will make them on its own.  As far as the other two are concerned, they are essential.  This means you must get them from your diet.

So what does your body actually do with fatty acids?  Under normal circumstances, your body converts them to eiconosoids through a process called the DLGA process.  In fact enzymes are required to make that conversion.  These eiconosoids are what “clean up” your blood vessels keeping them healthy.  However, several factors can prevent fatty acids from turning into eiconosoids.  And some of them are bad for your health.

How Fatty Acids can be Harmful

First of all, as you age, your DLGA process weakens just like everything else.  Additionally frequent viral infections also compromise your DLGA cycle.  However, if you consume too many carbohydrates, not only is your DLGA cycle interrupted, but the fatty acids covert into a pretty harmful substance.  When you eat too many carbs, there is an abundance of insulin in your blood.  Because of the insulin, the fatty acids you’ve eaten convert into arachadonic acid instead of eiconosoids.  This acid is responsible for inflammation and clotting.  Unfortunately, this is exactly what you’re trying to avoid.  As a result, it is crucial to make sure you take fatty acids when there are few carbs “floating around” in your system.

This is why our solution isn’t just recommending supplements.   At Redmond Ridge Nutrition & Chiropractic, specific testing leads to supporting a healthy body with specific nutrition and supplements.
