Now let us see how MD’s explain your hearth problem. Then I will provide a few simple natural healing tips to regain your heart health and regain your power be yourself again.
What causes weak heart muscles?
Dilated cardiomyopathy is a condition in which the heart becomes weak and the chambers get large. As a result, the heart cannot pump enough blood out to the body. It can be caused by many medical problems. Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is a condition in which the heart muscle becomes thick.
What really causes Coronary Heart Disease and heart attacks? CHD is ultimately a result of inflammation from fatty material and other substances forming a buildup of plaque that accumulates within the walls of your arteries. Because these arteries have the crucial role of bringing blood and oxygen to your heart, reduced blood flow can slow down or stop your heartbeat, causing “cardiac arrest.” For this reason, medical professionals use a combination of lifestyle changes, medicines and medical procedures to slow, stop or reverse the buildup of plaque. This can help lower the risk of blood clots forming and a heart attack taking place because it widens clogged arteries.
Examples of medications used to treat CHD include cholesterol – modifying medications like aspirin, beta – blockers, nitroglycerin, angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors and angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs).
How long can you live with a weak heart? – Answer by WebMed.com
Although there have been recent improvements in congestive heart failure treatment, researchers say the prognosis for people with the disease is still bleak, with about 50% having an average life expectancy of fewer than five years. For those with advanced forms of heart failure, nearly 90% die within one year.
What are the last stages of heart failure?
The symptoms of end – stage congestive heart failure include dyspnea, chronic cough or wheezing, edema, lack of appetite, a high heart rate, and confusion or impaired thinking.
Recent studies suggest a heart rate higher than 76 beats per minute when you’re resting may be linked to a higher risk of heart attack.
The better shape you’re in, the slower your heart rate will be when you’re not moving around. It might be OK to have a resting heart rate of 80, but it doesn’t mean you’re healthy.
Your exercise plan should include Aerobic exercise (“cardio”): Running, jogging, and biking are some examples. You’re moving fast enough to raise your heart rate and breathe harder, but you should still be able to talk to someone while you’re doing it.
What are risk factors for developing a heart disease?
- High amounts of free radical damage (also called oxidative stress) and low antioxidant levels in the body. When antioxidant levels are lower than those of free radicals due to poor nutrition and other lifestyle factors, oxidation wreaks havoc in the body — damaging cells, breaking down tissue, mutating DNA and overloading the immune system.
- Being a male, since men develop CHD more other than women (although it affects both sexes)
- Being over the age of 65
- High consumption of alcohol
- Eating a poor diet with unhealthy fats and processed foods
- The family history of coronary heart disease, stroke or peripheral arterial disease
- Menopause in women
- Having high blood pressure, diabetes or high cholesterol levels
- Lack of physical activity or exercise
- Sleep deprivation
- Exposure to environmental pollutants and toxic chemicals
