COMBATING ATHEROSCLEROTIC ARTERY DISEASE
Atherosclerosis is a chronic inflammatory disease of arteries which results in heart attacks, strokes, aneurysm and blocked leg arteries. It is the leading cause of death in the U.S. and world-wide.
75% HAVE NO WARNING
Unfortunately, it is often diagnosed only after a tragic attack. 75% of heart attacks and strokes are first-ever events with no prior knowledge of the existence of the disease. Yet it is usually present for decades prior to the acute event. Simple screening imaging studies could have discovered it and led to preventive interventions.
A NUTRITIONAL DISEASE
Few appreciate that it is a nutritional disease. Not a nutritional deficiency, but rather one of excess. The standard American or Western diet pattern is simultaneously too rich in fat, sugar and calories resulting in obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart attack, stroke and death.
Nutrition is a much more powerful medicine than the pills physicians must use to treat these conditions in those who persist in consuming a self destructive diet. A diet eliminating those foods known to accelerate atherosclerosis and including only those proven to combat it is 2 to 3 times more powerful than medications needed to treat cholesterol, blood pressure and diabetes
4 SIMPLE STEPS
The Preventive Nutrition Food Plan is about health and disease prevention. The healthful effects have been proven by decades of research published in peer-reviewed journals. No fad diet, “superfood,” probiotic, detox, cleanse, packaged juice product, vitamin or supplement can claim such proven benefit.
The plan consists of 4 simple steps resulting in the elimination of foods known to do your arteries harm and consumption of those proven to prevent heart attack and stroke. These food choices lower cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar. And for most people, this plan means weight loss as well.
