Recently I was diagnosed with Coronary Artery Disease, a highly prevalent heart disease in the US that has been claiming lives. A common cause of heart disease in both men and women is narrowing or blockage of the arteries that supply blood to the heart itself. My symptoms weren’t the common chest pain but a sudden increase in blood pressure and severe neck pain. I’m lucky that the condition did not cause a heart attack or stroke. Usually, this has occurred to many since most people with the condition do not find out until something catastrophic happens. As for my case, I found myself in the emergency room for elevated blood pressure and pain to the neck. It during this emergency visit that doctor’s found I had some form of narrowing and after many tests, I learned that I had CAD, Coronary Artery Disease.
February is the American Heart Month for raising awareness about heart disease and prevention. At the same time, it is the month we celebrate love, which is observed on Valentine’s Day. I was quite shocked to find out I had the Coronary Artery Disease, after all, I am very active in the gym, I try to minimize my stress levels, and eat healthy foods. Thus, at first, I was surprised and overwhelmed by the news. Afterward, I decided to accept reality and focus on this ailment head-on. The condition is one of the many prevalent lifestyle diseases and if it isn’t controlled it can be fatal. Due to my busy schedule, at times I was eating whatever I could get my hands on since I had inadequate time to prepare my meals. This could be one thing that causes this, or it could be genetic. My unhealthy eating habits was a contributing factor that led to this unfortunate result.
I was informed by doctors; the condition is controllable through medication and some lifestyle changes. I became interested in learning how to reverse this disease by not harming myself further since the blockage would clear naturally. Therefore, since being diagnosed with this serious illness, my focus has been on treating it so that I can share with many as to how I have been successful in doing so. I have taken charge and become more conscious of what I eat. Particularly, I prefer green leafy foods, no sugars and salts, colorful fruits, vegetables and small amounts of fish. Along with this, I have been using an organic citrus supplement called Pectasol.
Pectasol improves the general health and immunity of the body. It is a magnet for heavy metals inside the body. Metals such as lead, mercury, and chromium have been proven to have unhealthy and carcinogenic effects on humans. However, manufacturing companies release lots of these metals into the environment in gaseous, liquid, or solid wastes. They end up back in our bodies either through inhalation or consumption of plants, fruits, or meat already contaminated with the effluents. Pectasol can bind with these heavy metals in the body, which are then excreted through urine. It also prevents their reabsorption from the intestinal tract.
Medical researchers have carried out many studies with excellent results. One study found that the supplements can help get rid of 76% of heavy metals in the body within 6 months. Throughout my research, I have found that people taking Pectasol leave great reviews even for other more serious illnesses such as kidney, prostate, and breast cancer. The supplement has been a contributing factor in lowering my blood pressure. I have not experienced any side effects over the three months I have used the supplements.
I believe that if I continue to watch how I treat my body, I can defeat the Coronary Artery Disease. Therefore, this month, I want to spread awareness about heart diseases and urge you to take proactive and preventative measures for your heart. Maintain a healthy lifestyle and get checked early if you have any heart symptoms. I believe that to love someone, you must begin by loving yourself. This involves taking necessary actions to take the best level of care of your heart, one of the most vital body organs. A healthy heart will give you endless love results.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
