High Blood Pressure
High Blood Pressure can be deadly

This episode of Dr. Andy’s Wellness Corner is about high blood pressure.  Additionally, Dr. Andy will go into the importance of vascular health and other risks from this common disease.  Of course, Dr. Andy starts by defining the disease.  And then your host covers its prevalence not only in the U.S. but in Washington state as well.  He also gets into what this common disease costs Americans annually as well its serious complications.  He also goes into risk groups, how it’s measured and common treatments.  Lastly he covers both the popular natural approaches to healthy vascular function and, of course, the enzyme nutrition approach.

High blood pressure is known as hypertension.  The most common way to measure it is using a cuff.  There are, however, several other ways to measure it.  Additionally, one high reading is not enough to diagnose a patient with hypertension or high blood pressure.  In this program, Dr. Andy will also reveal some startling new research showing how high blood pressure can lead to some pretty surprising complications.  There are of course some predictable complications as well.  Your host goes into both of them siting appropriate research along the way.

Then Dr. Andy goes into  common medications as well as their side effects.  He also goes common natural ways of supporting healthy vascular functions.  Lastly, of course he delves into the enzyme nutrition approach to support  properly working heart and vascular systems.

Did You Know Low Cholesterol Shortens Life?

Low Cholesterol Shortens Life.  Over the past many years, there have been a number of studies proving the cholesterol myth is just that.  It is just a myth.  In fact these studies show there is no link between cholesterol and heart disease.  Among these studies are the Framingham Study as well as the Honolulu Study.  And, as I’ve previously stated, the Aboriginals have a high instance of heart disease and very low cholesterol levels while Switzerland has a low incidence of heart disease and relatively high cholesterol levels.  However, if you actually dive into the data behind the Honolulu study, you’ll find some startling figures.  Surprisingly, these statistics indicate that lower cholesterol may actually shorten your life span.

What’s most unfortunate is that the study concludes that lowering cholesterol does not affect your risk of heart disease.  While that is a great finding, one needs to look at the underlying data in the study to get to the real truth.  Surprisingly, if you look at that actual data, you find the conclusion is being somewhat politically correct.  Because the data actually shows a HIGHER MORTALITY RATE for subjects who had lower cholesterol levels.  As a matter of fact this includes those with lower LDL levels, which is the “BAD” cholesterol.  In fact several studies from medscape.com show that people who have lower LDL (“Bad Cholesterol”) levels had an increased risk of cancer.

Enzymes Boost Heart Health
Learn How Enzymes Boost Heart Health

Enzymes Boost Heart Health.  According to Nutrition Research, January 2009, specific enzymes supports healthy heart and cardiovascular  function.  In fact the study even showed that this enzyme even helps people who are at higher risk of cardio vascular disease (CVD).  In fact according to the research, this enzyme helps heart health by reducing several key clotting factors in the blood.   These factors are fibrinogen, factor VII and factor VIII.

Factor VII, formerly known as proconvertin, is one of the proteins that causes blood to clot in the coagulation cascade.  Meanwhile, factor VIII is an essential blood clotting protein.  Lastly, fibrinogen (formerly known as factor I) is a glycoprotein in vertebrates that helps in the formation of blood clots.  And while all of these chemicals are necessary; in fact we would bleed to death without them, they are problematic in abundance.

The Research and Our Approach

However, the exciting news is that the enzyme known as nattokinase shows much promise in reducing fibrinogen, Factor VII and Factor VIII.  Of course you would want to be careful not to take too much.  In fact, this why we use a scientific approach to supporting a healthy working body with enzyme nutrition.  Through scientific testing based on sound medical principals, Dr. Andy can identify the actual source(s) of stress in the body and help those organs work properly.  Therefore, this even includes both heart and cardiovascular function.

Are you concerned about your heart health?  Does your condition affect your work, play or family?  Would you like a more active lifestyle?  Or perhaps you’re worried about a loved one.  Give us a call and set up a consultation.  Let us help your body work properly by finding and addressing the source of stress.  In fact, we will take the time to sit down and talk with you about your suffering.  We will even do some preliminary testing to determine if you are a good candidate for care.
