I was taking prescribed medicines Clopitab A-150, Atorva-20 & Nebicard-2.5 for 2 years. My BP was 130-140/90 with these medications & Lipid profile was normal. As my Chest tightness/heaviness was not completely disappeared till March '17 I consulted to doctor and was given Cardace 5 mg plus Ecosprin AV 150/20 which continued upto October 2017. I found no improvement in the Chest therefore stopped this medicine, started natural remedy by taking raw garlic 6 cloves early morning empty stomach from Nov'17 on wards. I do walk climb stairs & do light exercise about one & half hours every day morning, also I do not take Chicken/Mutton ,only taking fish weekly twice. With this my BP remains now 130-140/85-95 & Lipid profile was checked in May 2018 found normal. Please let me know whether mentioned natural remedy will help me to remain my life healthy for future days to come.
Coronary artery disease is one of the major killer diseases of the modern society. It is not a solitary problem but brings with it a multitude of issues including obesity, diabetes, stroke, and other metabolic disorders. A thorough understanding of what causes it and how to manage it can help save thousands of lives.
Causes: The circulatory system is mainly made up of the heart and a complex network of arteries and veins. The inner walls of these are lined with smooth muscles, allowing for free flow of blood. Gradually, over a period of time, given the density, the fat from the blood flowing through these vessels settles along the walls of these vessels. This attracts more fat, lipoproteins, and other inflammatory cells and so the process continues. This reduces the diameter of the blood vessels, therefore reducing the amount of blood supply to the target organs. If the target organ is a vital one like the brain or the heart, then it could lead to stroke or heart attacks.
Main causes for coronary artery disease include high blood pressure, high cholesterol, sedentary lifestyle, obesity, smoking, diabetes, and stress. Men are more prone than women, and family history and age puts them at higher risk.
Symptoms: Reduced blood supply to the target organ causes the following symptoms:
Shortness of Breath: A person with coronary artery disease will feel short of breath and tired with most activities, even like walking a few meters.
Chest Pain: A strong pressure sensation on the left side of the chest is an indication of coronary artery disease. Known as angina, it comes with stress and goes away once the stress is removed. It could sometimes radiate to the shoulder, down the arm, or up into the jaw also. These are classical symptoms of angina or heart attack and is considered an emergency. Of note, this is often mistaken for indigestion.
Palpitations: A sensation where you are able to hear your heartbeat.
Treatment: There are 3 modes to manage this.
Lifestyle Change: Lifestyle changes including reduced fat consumption, decrease body weight, stop smoking, increased physical exercise, and reducing stress are highly important in preventing further damage.
Once suspected, coronary artery disease can be effectively managed and the extent of damage controlled using the above techniques.
