Heart disease is caused by various factors, most of which we can control. The disease is the result of the walls of the arteries and veins becoming lines with calcified deposits narrowing and restricting blood flow from the heart. Left untreated this disease can lead to heart attacks and other more serious medical problems.
In the process of preventing heart disease you are also lowering your risks for other aliments including hypertension and high cholesterol. High cholesterol levels containing bad (LDL) cholesterol leave fatty deposits on the walls of the circulatory system. As these deposits harden, they slowly close off the blood vessel and restrict blood flow. As a result the heart now has to beat harder and faster increasing blood pressure.
As more and more bad cholesterol continues to build up, eventually the blood is completely blocked. Depending on where the blockage occurs, it can result in a heart attack. Other warning signs that there may be a problem include chest pains that can vary in intensity. If you notice any sort of chest pain and are at risk for heart disease, you should consult with a doctor immediately. Sometimes the pain can feel like heartburn.
Unhealthy diets, obesity, and lack of exercise can all contribute to heart disease. Eating foods that are high in trans fats and saturated fats adds bad cholesterol to the body. Obesity is a sign of poor diets consisting mainly of fast foods and take-out meals, as well as lack of exercise. Even though there are medications available to help control high blood pressure and high cholesterol levels, these medications are only treating the symptoms. Failure to realize the problems and continuing your bad habits will not make the risks for the disease go away.
While there is no miracle cure available to take away all risks of heart disease, there are many things you can do to lower your risks. Acknowledging that there is a problem and coming up with a healthy plan to fix the problem is the first step. After acceptance of the problem then you can begin eliminating the unhealthy behaviors that cause the disease.
