Reversing Heart Disease

Are There "Natural" Methods of Reversing Heart Disease?

Type "reversing heart disease" into an Internet search engine, and you are bound to find many so-called natural ways of reversing it. The fact is, no research has shown that any of these herbal remedies or supplements can reverse it. In fact, recent research has shown that some supplements originally touted for preventing heart disease may have the opposite effect.
 
For example, until recently, it was believed that antioxidant vitamins, particularly vitamin E, might protect against heart disease and stroke, as well as cancer. But new research shows that taking large doses of vitamin E in supplement form can actually increase the risk of sudden death.

Summary

Heart disease research scientists continue to search for a way for heart disease to be reversed. Recent studies with high doses of statins have shown promise, but until there are ways to reverse the condition, the best advice is to adopt strategies to prevent heart disease in the first place.
 
Regardless of your age, background, or health status, you can lower your risk for heart disease -- and it doesn't have to be complicated. Protecting your heart can be as simple as taking a brisk walk, whipping up a good vegetable soup, or getting the support you need to maintain a healthy weight. Also, by living a healthier life, you could delay heart disease for years or minimize its damage. Whether you are already healthy, are at high risk for heart disease, or have survived a heart attack, the advice to protect your heart is the same.
