Cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of death around the world. According to World Health Organization, 17.5 million people died of cardiovascular disease in 2012, accounting for 31% of all deaths worldwide. Of these, approximately 7.4 million died from coronary heart disease and 6.7 million from strokes.
What Causes Cardiovascular Diseases?
Your blood vessels are like water pipes, which can form scale and rust on the inner walls, especially after a long time of use. If left untreated, the “scale and rust” inside our vessels will gradually lead to blockage and limited blood supply to organs. Moreover, smoking, drinking, or diseases such as diabetes and high blood pressure will accelerate the damage to the blood vessels.
Cholesterol and triglycerides (fats or lipids, in other words) will also increase the risk of atherosclerotic plaque formation. If the plaque falls off, it will flow with the blood and cause an embolism (complete blockage of a blood vessel) wherever it gets stuck.
Common Cardiovascular Diseases
Different cardiovascular diseases may occur depending on which blood vessel is in trouble.
1. In the brain: stroke
Blockage or stenosis of blood vessels in the brain can cause damage to the brain cells and render them dysfunctional. Increased vascular fragility and blood pressure will also increase the risk of cerebral blood vessel rupture and bleeding.
2. In the heart: angina and myocardial infarction
If the blockage is not severe, it may affect the pumping of the heart muscles or cause angina. Severe attacks can lead to myocardial infarction and be fatal.
3. In the lungs: pulmonary embolism
Pulmonary embolism is mostly caused by deep vein thrombosis in the legs. After the thrombus breaks off, it can move with the blood flow and clogs the blood vessels in the lungs, resulting in dangerous situations.
4. In the extremities: arteriosclerosis occlusion and venous thrombosis
Severe arterial blockage may lead to ischemic necrosis of the legs and feet, and amputation may be necessary in the most extreme cases.
How to Deal with Cardiovascular Diseases
Generally, patients need to use lipid-lowering and thrombosis-preventing drugs according to the doctor’s advice. These drugs can reduce the content of cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood and stabilize the atheromatous plaque on the blood vessel.
In more severe cases, surgery, such as a heart stent, may be required for the patients to open the narrowed blood vessels to ensure blood flow.
However, good living habits are a much easier and cheaper way to maintain cardiovascular health.
Here are five key points:
1. Actively control your blood sugar, blood fat, and blood pressure;
2. Quit smoking;
3. Keep a low-salt and low-fat diet with enough fruits and vegetables;
4. Ask a doctor before you take any medications;
5. Take physical examinations regularly.
MicroGen for Cardiovascular Diseases
HeaWea MicroGen is an advanced frequency healing device that can help with thousands of conditions. Its free software contains more than 60,000 programs and you can use MicroGen to help improve and prevent cardiovascular diseases.
We recommend the following programs.
The TENS pads should be placed on your right wrist and left ankle.
To some extent, having healthy blood vessels is an indication of longevity, and practicing active and healthy habits can ensure good vascular health. If you have cardiovascular conditions, make sure to follow the advice above and use MicroGen regularly.
