Millions of Americans (and other people, too!) take
Vitamin C and E supplements because research had initially
suggested that these vitamins help prevent heart disease.
But now a recent study published in Journal of the
American Medical Association reported that Vitamins C and E
do absolutely nothing to prevent heart disease.
My response: Yeah, tell me something I DON'T know.
I don't need a fancy, expensive medical study to prove
that you can't get real health from a pill alone, even if
it is a vitamin pill.
Too bad so many people were led to believe that a magic
pill exists to prevent heart disease.
Know this now and forever: There's no such thing as a
magic pill and never will be.
Plus, even if Vitamins C and E DID work some kind of magic
in preventing heart disease, most people eating a standard
American diet are walking around so bloody acidic that
their bodies couldn't absorb and use the magic vitamin
So what to do now?
Well, if you're concerned about the health of your ticker,
I don't blame you.
My own father is one of them--dead at 58 of a massive
heart attack. He didn't concern himself with his health.
If you want to live into your golden years (or even make
it to middle age) free of heart disease, or to prevent it
from worsening if you've already got it, here is what
1) Stop smoking
Smoking is by far the worst disease creating habit known
Besides the obvious cancer it causes (to you and those
within your "cloud range"), it constricts your blood
vessels, making your heart have to work in maximum
overdrive to pump your blood through your body.
Plus smoking makes you highly acidic, which puts an
additional strain on your heart (more on that below).
Our hearts cannot last a lifetime working day in and day
out under such tremendous strain. So if you smoke, stop
NOW. If you find that impossible because you love it too
much, go here: http://www.thinkrightnow.com/a/smoke.asp
to get the help you need.
2) Get moving your body
Your daily level of activity must consist of something
more than getting up to grab the remote...or answering the
door when the pizza delivery man arrives.
Exercise makes ALL of the muscles in your body stronger,
including your heart.
Plus exercise helps you release toxins, which makes you
less acidic and less susceptible to sickness and disease.
Pick an activity you like and do it at least 4-5 times a
week. There are countless ways to exercise: Aerobics,
running, weights, dancing, yoga, martial arts, pilates,
rebounding, various machines, etc.
Even walking is a great exercise--and nearly everyone can
do that, so there's no excuse for not moving.
3) MOST IMPORTANTLY--BECOME AND STAY ALKALINE
Your heart is one of the most alkaline-dependent organs in
your body--it is absolutely vital that you have an alkaline
pH for proper heart function.
Your heart pumps an incredible 13,000 quarts of blood a
day--enough to fill a 4 foot deep, 12 foot round swimming
It does this every single day!
If that blood is loaded with acidic wastes and toxins, it
puts a HUGE strain on the heart to pump it throughout the
Plus the acid robs the blood of precious oxygen, and
degeneration and disease of the heart (and other body
The great news is that getting & maintaining an alkaline
pH is as simple as A-B-C.
The Great Taste No Pain health system http://www.greattastenopain.com/great.asp teaches you the
ABC's of alkaline foods and good food combinations to keep
that acid low...and keep that ticker beating strong.
Plus the rest of your organs benefit too! ALL your
systems work their best in an alkaline environment.
This is by far the most important step you can take to
prevent heart disease.
Even if you do stop smoking and get some exercise, if you
don't change what you put in your mouth, you will continue
to be a perfect candidate for ticker trouble down the road
(if you're not there already). But it can be reversed
quickly when you get alkaline.
