Natural Remedy for Heart Diseases

Heart disease, also called cardiopathy, cardiac disease or cardiovascular disease, is a collective term used to refer to various diseases that affect the heart. It is the number killer in the United States, killing one person every 34 seconds. Heart disease is commonly caused by narrowing or blockage of the coronary arteries, the blood vessels that carry blood to the heart itself.

There are more than 50 different types of heart disease, with coronary artery disease (CAD) being the most common.  Some people are born with heart disease, a condition called congenital heart disease; others develop during a person's lifetime. With so many heart disease types, it may be helpful to classify them into problems that affect the heart chambers, heart muscle, heart valves, coronary arteries and coronary veins, conduction (electrical) system and heart lining.

Heart Disease Symptoms

As previously mentioned, there are many conditions that fall under the umbrella of heart disease and the associated symptoms are numerous. However, there are certain key symptoms that people must be aware of.  These include chest pain or chest discomfort, heart palpitations, dizziness or lightheadedness, syncope, fatigue or lethargy and shortness of breath. Each of these symptoms is briefly discussed below.

There are many conditions that can cause chest pain but heart disease is the most common cause and also the most dangerous. Chest pain may also be quite vague but it is generally described as pain, pressure, squeezing, choking, numbness or any other discomfort. Heart palpitations are commonly described as "skips" in the heartbeat or as periods of rapid and/or irregular heartbeats. Most people who experience palpitations have some type of cardiac arrhythmia. Lightheadedness or dizziness can have many causes and because so many different conditions can produce these symptoms, a general check up or a consultation with a general internist can help identify the primary cause. Syncope is a sudden and temporary loss of consciousness. The causes of syncope can be classified into four major types: neurologic, metabolic, vasomotor and cardiac. Of these, only cardiac syncope can be fatal. Fatigue, lethargy or somnolence (daytime sleepiness) are also very common symptoms. Again, it would be wise to have a general medical evaluation in order to pin down a specific cause. Shortness of breath is often a symptom of heart or lung diseases. Heart failure and coronary artery diseases frequently cause shortness of breath. It is almost always a sign of a serious medical problem so it ought to be evaluated by a doctor.

Heart Disease Treatment

Treatment for heart disease falls into two three major categories: medications, surgery and certain lifestyle changes. The most commonly used drugs include beta-blockers, calcium channel blockers, diuretics, angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors, angiotensin-2 (AT-2) receptor antagonists, and statins.        

Beta blockers are used to lower blood pressure by reducing the volume of blood pumped by the heart. These drugs can also reduce the risk of having another heart attack in patients who already had one. Calcium channel blockers are used to relax the walls of blood vessels to lower blood pressure. Diuretics help lower blood pressure by causing the body to eliminate excess fluids and sodium through urination. Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors expand blood vessels to decrease resistance. This allows blood to flow more easily, thereby reducing the load on the heart. Statins are effective in lowering
bad cholesterol levels by working in the liver and interrupting the formation of
cholesterol from the blood.

As for surgery, the most commonly performed procedures are bypass graft surgery, heart valve surgery, implantation of a pacemaker, cardioverter defibrillator or left ventricular assist device, and if needed, a heart transplant. There are also less invasive procedures such as balloon angioplasty, enhanced external counterpulsation, cardioversion and valvuloplasty.

Lifestyle changes are also important both as a preventive measure and as part of a treatment regimen. Cardiac patients may be asked to sustain some level if physical activity, stop smoking and drinking,
increase consumption of vegetables, fresh fruits, low-fat milk and other dairy products, grains, fish and poultry. Patients will also be asked to reduce stress, monitor their weight, cholesterol, LDL, HDL and triglyceride levels.

Mangosteen Help for Heart Disease

Heart disease is a multi-faceted health problem with dire consequences when left unchecked. There is no single medication that can effectively address the different problems associated with the disease thatís why most cardiac patients are taking multiple drugs to manage the various symptoms. The problem with this approach is that most of these drugs have potential side effects and may have antagonistic effects to other drugs taken by patients for other diseases such as diabetes, pulmonary or renal disorders.

Mangosteen supplements have grown in popularity among cardiac patients and for a good reason. It provides a multitude of benefits for the heart and the cardiovascular system as a whole. contains the most antioxidants available from a single source, thanks to a group of compounds called xanthones. These antioxidants eliminate free radicals that cause cellular damage that leads to arteriosclerotic heart disease. Mangosteen is also a good source of B-vitamins and folic acid which have been proven to lower homocysteine, an amino acid found in meat. High blood levels of homocysteine are linked to the early development of arteriosclerosis. Mangosteen has potent anti-inflammatory properties which are beneficial for the overall prevention of heart disease. Finally, the antimicrobial and antioxidant effects of xanthones can keep arteries free of plaque and remain structurally intact.

As mangosteen and its precious xanthones caught the attention of the experts and professionals, a lot of research and scientific studies have been undertaken. Here are a few that relate to mangosteenís potential to prevent and help manage heart disease. Xanthone derivatives have been found to possess
antiarrhythmic and antithrombotic properties. They have also been shown to have antiplatelet activity and can inhibit the oxidative modification of human low density lipoprotein or bad cholesterol. Researchers have also managed to produce synthetic xanthone derivatives with antihypertensive and vasorelaxing activities.
