Foods That Cleanse The Arteries Naturally
Foods that cleanse the arteries naturally

Arteries are the blood vessels that carry oxygen to various parts of the body. Proper functioning of the arteries is directly related to well functioning organs as without oxygen, no organ can work well. There are many reasons due to which blockages and waste materials are stuck in these blood vessels. It is essential to clean them on regular basis, there are several food items available easily that cleanse the arteries naturally!

1. Tea- green tea is known popularly as an antioxidant that keeps your health and weight in check. But it is also a very strong cleanser of your arteries as well. Black tea too, one that has flavonoids in good proportions is also considered as an excellent cleanser of the artery.
2. Sesame seeds- sesame seeds have natural cardioprotective substances that are not only good for the artery but are very beneficial for absolute heart health. Sesame is majorly known for preventing the occurrence of atherosclerosis. Apart from that, sesame helps in cleaning all blood vessels.
3. Turmeric- any blockage or damage to the artery is immediately addressed by the turmeric that we consume regularly. It cures the damages almost immediately, preventing any aggravation or infection. Including turmeric in good proportions in daily diet is considered as a complete option to tackle any problems to the arteries.
4. Fruits- fruits are extremely beneficial both for the cardiovascular and blood health. Fibrous fruits especially are related to the arteries. Researchers suggest that having fibrous fruits first up in the morning, on an empty stomach ensures that all the arteries are cleaned and its functions are proceeding in the right manner.
5. Olive oil- fatty acids like omega-3 and omega-6 present in olive oil are excellent plaque removers. Consuming olive oil increases the omega substances in the body, so when something is about to harm the artery, they intervene and cleanse it completely.

So we went to the doc they did kidney test liver test lipid test urine and blood test. All tests was normal. So why he is feeling this problem? They told it occurred may be from gastritis. His cholesterol level was on borderline 199 total cholesterol. VLDL = 29 and LDL was = 124 Trigly= 147 LDL/HDL= 2.79 Is this fine report? What will you suggest should we go for an echo or any heart test? He doesn't feel any pain in chest.

Your total cholesterol is normal but LDL & VLDL are high. You have not written HDL which is a good cholesterol and done in total lipid profile , anyway you have to Reduce Bad Cholesterol. cut down on oils , bad transfats present in namkeen ,biscuits ,cakes , burgers , pizzas , roadside fried items etc and do not use heated oil more than once at home, means do not use the oil which has been used for frying. You seem to be overweight also. Go for walks , it reduces bad cholesterol. Write back proper BP , not just 160. You can get Echo test done that shows % of heart function. Take fresh lemon juice in a glass of warm water with a spoon of honey , everyday on empty stomach , besides cleansing the blood , this too reduces the bad cholesterol . Take a spoon of desi ghee/ pure butter + katori of dry nuts of any variety everyday-this is to improve HDL , which is good cholesterol ,if good is on higher side , the bad one comes down . Now you have to write back with proper BP reading ,echo report , HDL report. Take less Salt & Sugar ,though you may Not be a diabetic & Cut down calories by eating more fresh fruits and vegetables.

bad breath is associated with either intraoral or extraoral causes.... Deep carious lesions (dental decay) – which cause localized food impaction and stagnation Recent dental extraction sockets – fill with blood clot, and provide an ideal habitat for bacterial proliferation Interdental food packing – (food getting pushed down between teeth) - this can be caused by missing teeth, tilted, spaced or crowded teeth, or poorly contoured approximal dental fillings. Food debris becomes trapped, undergoes slow bacterial putrefaction and release of malodorous volatiles. Food packing can also cause a localized periodontal reaction, characterized by dental pain that is relieved by cleaning the area of food packing with interdental brush or floss. Acrylic dentures (plastic false teeth) – inadequate denture hygiene practises such as failing to clean and remove the prosthesis each night, may cause a malodour from the plastic itself or from the mouth as microbiota responds to the altered environment. The plastic is actually porous, and the fitting surface is usually irregular, sculpted to fit the edentulous oral anatomy. These factors predispose to bacterial and yeast retention, which is accompanied by a typical smell. Oral infections Oral ulceration Fasting Stress/anxiety Menstrual cycle – at mid cycle and during menstruation, increased breath VSC were reported in women. Smoking – Smoking is linked with periodontal disease, which is the second most common cause of oral malodor. Smoking also has many other negative effects on the mouth, from increased rates of dental decay to premalignant lesions and even oral cancer. Alcohol Volatile foodstuffs – e.g. onion, garlic, durian, cabbage, cauliflower and radish. Volatile foodstuffs may leave malodorous residues in the mouth, which are the subject to bacterial putrefaction and VSC release. However, volatile foodstuffs may also cause halitoisis via the blood borne halitosis mechanism. Medication – often medications can cause xerostomia (dry mouth) which results in increased microbial growth in the mouth.

Hypothyroid leads to a slight increase in Triglycerides, your levels are not high enough to start any medications yet. you have not mentioned your LDL levels. so make sure your TSH is within normal range. Secondly diet, exercise and lifestyle patters have a major correlation with Cholesterol levels, It is important that you modify your diet to a low fat, low sugar diet (take a detailed diet consult for that) and begin with exercise, start gradually increase to 45 mins per dayof brisk walking or yoga, quit alcohol if u take. these are standard recommendations asper American and European guidelines accepted by India cardiac society also, so kindly do not pay heed to anyone who suggests to you that diet has no role to play in cholesterol management.

Hello dear High cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Change life style .do meditation,yoga, Go walk daily, do any one physically activity daily i.e.play any game., Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress,take plenty of water in day time. And 1 glass of water before bed at night. use flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain. garlic,. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

Is there any solution for heart muscles weakening, I'm afraid that is it leads to a heart transplantation?
Hello lybrate-user. Heart transplantation is the lasr resort, only after all the options are exausted. There can be quite improvement with proper treatment which includes diet, exercise and medications. Apart from this there are options for devices which can improve the pumping. If the heart weakness is due to a reversible cause then it can also be taken care of. So be optimistic and enjoy life.
