There are many health care professionals, today, that still focus on treating disease once it is diagnosed. They\'re still not getting the big picture and miss 90% of silent disease. While early detection is key, prevention is equally important in guaranteeing a longer, healthier life. By focusing on preventive treatment, my patients don\'t experience unexpected illnesses or surprise deaths.

Preventing Heart Attack

and Stroke

By

Dr. Braverman

there are many health care professionals today

There are many health care professionals, today, that still focus on treating

disease once it is diagnosed. They're still not getting the big picture and miss

90% of silent disease. While early detection is key, prevention is equally

important in guaranteeing a longer, healthier life. By focusing on preventive

treatment, my patients don't experience unexpected illnesses or surprise deaths.

Preventing Heart Attack and Stroke

We can now conclusively predict who is most likely to become the victim of a

stroke or heart attack, even though the majority of patients who die of a sudden

heart attack have few or no symptoms. For example, a major study of 28,000

women at Boston's Brigham and Women's Hospital provided conclusive

evidence that painless inflammation of heart and blood vessels is a major trigger

of heart attacks - even more so than high cholesterol. Women with high levels of

inflammation are twice as likely as those with high cholesterol to die from heart

attacks and strokes.

The collective condition known as "cardiovascular disease" refers to disorders of

the heart as well as the vascular system. Below are signs and symptoms that you

want to be on the lookout for; and if they occur, talk to your doctor immediately.

Signs and Symptoms of Heart Attack

•A sudden onset of sharp pain in an arm, shoulder, the back, stomach, or jaw

•Shortness of breath

•Chest pain

•Sudden dizzy spells

•Breaking out in a cold sweat

•Nausea

•Anxiety

signs and symptoms of stroke sudden numbness

Signs and Symptoms of Stroke

•Sudden numbness or weakness of the face, arm, or leg, which may affect only

one side of the body

•Sudden confusion or difficulty speaking

•Difficulty seeing in one or both eyes

•Loss of balance or coordination, dizziness, or trouble walking

•Severe, sudden headache of unknown cause

a c reactive protein blood test

A C-reactive protein blood test is one of the simplest ways to identify chronic

inflammation that may be smoldering in your body. Coronary computed

tomography angiography (CTA) is another useful technique for identifying heart

disease.

The key to prolonging good heart health (and overall health) and continuing to

lead a vibrant and active life is the ability to identify the aging parts of your body

that may already be experiencing the ravages of silent disease.

Your Waistline Predicts Your Heart Health

You can never start a cardiovascular program soon enough. In assessing your

heart attack risk, simply look at the notches on your belt. An increasing waistline

is a reliable risk indicator of heart disease.

Bioidentical Hormones

Potential heart disease patients may benefit from preventive hormone therapy,

especially testosterone therapy (in men). Testosterone and other hormones

strengthen the heart muscle, which will aid in heart contraction and improve the

heart's pumping ability. DHEA may help protect against atherosclerosis and

cardiovascular disease. Contact our office for an appointment to discuss further

hormone therapies.

dietary modifications for a healthy heart

Dietary Modifications For a Healthy Heart

By following a healthy lifestyle including exercise and a diet rich in fruits,

vegetables, healthy whole grains, and plenty of low-fat protein (including eggs,

which are a perfect protein source rich in amino acids), you may lose excess

weight that can contribute to heart disease and stroke. You also need to eat

foods that are low in sodium, which will naturally reduce internal swelling and

water retention. For more information on my Braverman Protocol and Rainbow

Diet, you can read my book, The Amazing Way to Reverse Heart Disease

Naturally. But a yearly exam that includes early detection tests is a must.

At PATH Medical, we can help you with all of your health, dietary, and

supplemental needs.
