Natural Therapy for Heart Disease

February 25, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 152

There is a more simple and highly effective therapy for heart disease than you might think. In fact this is so simple and profound that it would be quite easy to dismiss it, so be open and curious about this rather than closed and critical.

Without doubt Water Fasting is the number one natural therapy for heart disease. If you want to prevent heart attack, stroke and reverse high blood pressure, angina or any other related condition or disease then you might want to look into the beneficial and often miraculous effects of water fasting.

Fasting is an ancient therapy, the animals have been doing it forever, just watch a dog, when it get's sick it will curl up under a tree and stop eating for a few days until it feels better. Hippocrates noted 3000 Years ago that his patients with inflamed rheumatoid arthritis got better after fasting.

Most diseases we see today are those of excess and so with fasting as a natural therapy for heart disease, it gives the body a rest, so it can repair and regenerate. People with high blood pressure will notice a significant drop in their blood pressure while fasting, for some people this will take a couple of days and for others a couple of weeks and there is a very good reason why this happens.

When people are used to eating a Standard American Diet, there is a lot of salt in the processed foods and this salt makes you retain water and more water in the blood increases your blood pressure. During the first few days of a fast there is usually a marked diuresis, where people dump the salt and the water, and that brings the blood pressure down.When we eat fats and oils in the diet they get into the blood stream and coat the blood cells. The cells start sticking together and becomes more viscous. If your blood is more viscous (thicker) it is like trying to force molasses through a straw, so more pressure is needed, hence higher blood pressure. So when the person starts fasting and this fat intake is no longer present the blood becomes thinner and easier to pump around the body. Thus the blood pressure lowers.Inflammation massively decreases during a fast and the veins and arteries open wider than before to allow increased blood flow, which is the key to healing.

You might wonder is therapeutic water fasting dangerous, and in 99% of cases it is perfectly safe. If a person is very skinny, anorexic or has a very advanced cancer then water fasting may not be safe.

If you choose to do an unsupervised fast then no more than 5 days is recommended. For deeper healing, a longer fast is necessary and it is best to be supervised in a fasting center for these.

Fasting centers will allow patients to fast for up to 40 days with daily monitoring. The effects can be amazingly transformative for the mind, body and spirit. Make sure that the fasting center you visit has a good reputation and check that their record is impeccable.

It is important that once you complete your fast, that you don't go back to your old eating habits that may have caused the disease or condition in the first place. A complete cessation of animal products is recommended and a move towards eating vegetables, without any processed foods or deep fat fried foods.

Learn as much about fasting as you can before you jump into it, including how to break a fast, which is of the utmost importance that you do this properly.
