Heart disease is a leading killer of both men and women in the U.S. There are steps that you can take to avoid heart disease and if you already have it there are steps you can take to improve your condition. You should learn what you can do to improve your condition through lifestyle changes. There are natural ways to clear plaque from arteries that are quite effective.
Examine your lifestyle and identify the things you are doing that are causing your arteries become blocked. The things that you identify are the things that you need to stop. This may not be easy because lifestyle habits are established over a long time. But you must stop doing those things that are making you unhealthy.
Identify the things that you should be doing to improve your health and unblock your arteries. The things that you identify are the things that you need to adopt into your life. You do not need to do everything at once; however, there are some things that you should do immediately, for example, starting an exercise regimen.
Educate yourself on your condition; do this in conjunction with steps one and two because this will help you to understand what is bad for you and what is good for you. This education will help you learn how to naturally unblock your arteries.
Build and adopt a diet plan. This is key to unblocking your arteries. It is the food we eat that causes blocked arteries and to a large extent the food you eat once you decide to change your lifestyle will unblock your arteries. The education from step three should include learning about a proper diet.
Establish an exercise routine that you can do on a daily basis. You should raise your heart rate enough to work up a good sweat through vigorous aerobic exercise for at least 20 minutes each day. If you have been sedentary for a long time you can work up to this level gradually, but you must start and continue the exercise regimen or you will not improve your condition; diet alone will not do it.
Determine the vitamin and mineral supplements you need. You must add antioxidants to your diet. Vitamin C and co-Q10 are antioxidant supplements that provide enormous benefits for unblocking arteries; there are other supplements that offer the same benefits. The education process in step 3 is where you will identify them; however, you need to be careful not to take too much of any single vitamin or mineral and to understand how they interact. You should consult your doctor or herbalist on dosage issues.
