WHAT EXACTLY IS HEART DISEASE?
At one point in time or another, you have probably known or heard of someone having a heart attack, stroke or other issue affecting their heart. While you might think your heart is perfectly fine, that isn’t always the case. Heart disease strikes when you have too much plaque in the arteries and walls of your heart.
The plaque will continue to build up until your blood isn’t able to flow through your heart. When the blood cannot flow properly, it causes the passageways to suffer tremendously. Because of this, many people end up suffering from heart attacks and passing away each and every year.
In fact, heart disease is the leading causing of death in the US. Often, the disease ends up developing without exhibiting any symptoms whatsoever. Many people don’t even realize they have this problem until it is out of control.
WHAT CAN A CHIROPRACTOR DO TO REDUCE YOUR RISK OF HEART DISEASE?
Heart disease is often attributed to living a lifestyle that isn’t healthy. It isn’t something that you are genetically disposed to, but rather something you get by making the wrong choices. An impaired healing ability often attributes to the condition.
While some people think it is how much cholesterol you have in your body, that isn’t the case. It actually correlates with the type of cholesterol you have as to whether your body is going to produce plaque or not.
What factors cause your body to oxidize and produce bad cholesterol?
- Being stressed out a lot
- Not exercising
- Having your spine out of alignment
- Being exposed to a lot of toxins
- Consuming a bunch of processed foods
- It is oxidization that ends up making the cholesterol dangerous to your health. By getting chiropractic care and modifying your lifestyle, you can make sure your body can heal itself and fight back against all of the plaque responsible for heart disease.
