"One minute he was fine and BOOM -- the
next minute he was dead!"
That's how people often describe it when
someone suddenly drops dead of a heart
I would know. It's how my own father died
when I was 15.
According to the Centers for Disease
Control & Prevention (CDC), the top cause of death in the US continues
to be heart disease, just ahead of cancer.
But with the exception of congenital heart
disease (meaning you're born with it), heart
disease doesn't just pop out of nowhere...
It's created over time.
You see, the main cause of heart disease is
atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries).
And that is created slowly, methodically,
day after day and year after year.
Here's what happens--let's take a peek
inside your arteries:
The creation of atherosclerosis
Stage 1: A little artery wall damage
Just like anything else, your arteries
endure normal "wear and tear." There are
often signs of minor abrasions in the
arteries of people as young as 20.
High blood pressure is also a culprit. Just
like what tires do to a dirt road, the force
of your blood being pumped through your
blood vessels can cause serious damage to
the walls of your arteries over time.
Stage 2: Inflammation
Once an artery becomes damaged, it sounds
the alarm for your body's repair system,
which is made up of platelets and white
Although these substances are supposed to
promote healing, if the damage continues,
they can get "carried away" and instead
create pockets of inflammation in your
Stage 3: Enter cholesterol
Inflammation in your arteries provides the
perfect spot for cholesterol buildup.
LDL cholesterol is transported inside white
blood cells called macrophages through your
arteries and is "dropped off" at one or more
of your inflammation pockets.
Stage 4: Plaque buildup
At this point large amounts of LDL
cholesterol have begun accumulating along
the walls of your arteries.
Stage 5: Serious blockage...and hello
This is where your coronary arteries are so
clogged with plaque that they're squeezing
off the blood supply to your heart. Hello
Note that if a blood clot finds its way to a
clogged coronary artery and completely shuts
it off, you have a heart attack. If this
happens in a vessel that brings blood to the
brain, it's a stroke.
How to prevent being a statistic
While the process I've just described is
rather grim, in addition to quitting
smoking, maintaining a healthy weight and
exercising, there are two VERY effective
measures you can take to help prevent
becoming a statistic...
...And not only make it into your golden
years, but be able to enjoy them as well!
1- Be a good home for your heart
All of your organs were designed to function
in an alkaline environment, and that
especially includes your heart.
Your heart pumps an astounding 13,000 quarts of blood a day. If
there are lots of toxins in that blood, that
puts a huge strain on your heart. Acid
wastes in your system rob your blood of
oxygen, and that causes your heart tissue to
So it's essential to keep your pH as
alkaline as possible and minimize the toxins
flowing through your blood. Your life
may literally depend on it.
The good news is that it's not difficult.
The Great Taste No Pain manuals will show
you exactly what to do.
The GTNP manuals will teach you the simple principles of smart food
pairing which will help prevent accumulation
of acid wastes.
Plus, they'll tell you exactly which foods
are inherently acid-waste creators and which
are alkaline so there's no guesswork.
You'll also receive convenient charts showing you what to
pair with all of your favorite foods to make
them easily digested, including meats,
pastas, grains, dairy, bread and vegetables.
Eating for a strong heart couldn't be
2- Get your Omega-3 essential fatty acids
Omega-3 fatty acids have shown to be an
important tool to help fight heart disease
in these 4 ways:
* They've been medically proven to help
lower blood pressure. Studies show that
daily fish oil supplementation alone can
lower your systolic (the top number)
pressure by five points or more and your
diastolic (the bottom number) pressure by
three points or more!
* Omega-3 fatty acids have
anti-inflammatory properties, which may help
counteract any inflammation you might have
building up in your arteries.
* Omega-3 fatty acids help raise HDL
cholesterol levels and lower LDL
cholesterol, thereby helping to improve your
* They also help keep blood clots from
forming by reducing the stickiness in your
platelets and curbing the production of
fibrinogens--protein strands that can get
tangled up with platelets and result in a
Problem is, most people in developed
countries are seriously lacking in Omega-3
So one of the best ways to help fight or
prevent heart disease is to take a very
high-quality fish oil formula.
The suggested 2-capsule daily serving
packs a whopping 1,200 mg. of EPA, DHA and
other Omega-3 fatty acids in the same pure,
potent form you'd get directly from fish
The oils in VitalMega-3 go through a CO2
distillation process that removes any
trace amounts of heavy metals like mercury
...so it's FAR safer than eating fish
Heart disease is nothing to take lightly.
And the biggest mistake you can make is
thinking that it can't happen to YOU.
It didn't get to be the number one killer by
affecting just a few.
Do all you can to keep this killer far away
Your body will say thank you, and so will
your loved ones.
To your health,
PS: Julie no longer needs acid reducers
and her bp is now 118/70!
After experiencing 12 hours of agonizing
abdominal pain and having a CAT scan all in
one day last May, I decided I HAD to follow
Taste No Pain" eating plan--no excuses,
As long as I stick scrupulously to the
plan, my two prescription GERD pills stay in
the medicine cabinet.
But even better, since then I easily lost
20-25 #; and as of 3 days ago, my blood
pressure has dropped to 118/70, and my
cholesterol has dropped to 140.
These are additional, unexpected benefits
that are music to the ears of this
