Stroke and Heart Attack Are They Really Inevitable

Stroke is a general term used to describe any brain injury caused when blood supply to the brain is interrupted, resulting in tissue loss and temporary or permanent impairment of function. It is the third leading cause of death in developed countries, and may result from a variety of factors, including atherosclerosis, heart disease, connective-tissue diseases (lupus, arthritis, etc.), and drug use. Ninety percent of all strokes are ischemic (dry). An ischemic stroke results when blood flow to the arteries that feed the brain is interrupted. This type of stroke may be caused by a clot that arises within the arteries of the brain itself (thrombus), or a blood clot, plaque, or other blood-borne material that travels from another part of the body into the brain (embolus). Thrombosis is generally attributed to atherosclerosis, while embolisms are linked to heart disease and arrhythmia. Hemorrhagic strokes account for 10 percent of all strokes and are caused when arteries within the brain...

Genenutrient interactions and genetic susceptibility

For public health policy have only begun to be addressed. For example, a recent study of the relationship between folate and cardiovascular disease revealed that a common single gene mutation that reduces the activity of an enzyme involved in folate metabolism (MTHFR) is associated with a moderate (20 ) increase in serum homocysteine and higher risk of both ischaemic heart disease and deep vein thrombosis (132).

Antioxidant Defences Following Infection and Injury

Although pro-inflammatory cytokines are essential for the normal operation of the immune system, they play a major damaging role in many inflammatory diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, asthma, psoriasis and multiple sclerosis, and in cancer (Tracey and Cerami, 1993 Grimble, 1996). They are also thought to be important in the development of atheromatous plaques in cardiovascular disease (Ross, 1993). In conditions such as cerebral malaria, meningitis and sepsis, they are produced in excessive amounts and are an important factor in increased mortality (Tracey and Cerami, 1993). Clearly, in these diseases, the cytokines are being produced in the wrong biological context. In malaria, tuberculosis, sepsis, cancer, HIV infection and rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory cytokines bring about a loss of lean tissue, which is associated with depleted tissue GSH content and an increased output of nitrogenous and sulphur-containing excretion products in the urine...

Use in Prevention and Therapy

Severe selenium deficiency, possibly exacerbated by concomitant vitamin E deficiency and viral infection, produces cardiomyopathy and heart failure (Keshan disease).16 This disorder is found mainly in adolescents and young women. Decreased selenium levels in blood have been found in patients with coronary heart disease.11 In heart disease patients, particularly those with low selenium intakes, increasing selenium intake may be beneficial.

Oxidation and Disease an Overview

Many years ago, it was proposed that a common event could explain many of the findings we associate with diseases of various sorts, such as diabetes, heart attacks, strokes, arthritis, lupus, Alzheimer's disease, and other degenerative diseases of aging. That common event appears to be the destructive oxidation of tissues by free radicals, a process I have already described. As for the rest of us, free radicals appear to play a central role in virtually every disease you can name, either directly or secondarily. Of the diseases known to be related to free-radical injury, the best evidence exists for lupus, multiple sclerosis, all of the degenerative brain diseases (Alzheimer's dementia, Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease, olivopontocerebellar degeneration, and ALS), strokes, heart disease, arteriosclerosis, all infectious diseases (viral, fungal, mycoplasmal, and bacterial), rheumatoid arthritis, cancer, smoking-related diseases, diabetes, and all other inflammatory diseases....

Fatvital Yes But Less Is Enough

Fat is another key ingredient for health. Lipids is the more comprehensive term applied to include triglycerides, sterols like cholesterol, and phospholipids. Most of what we hear about these fats is negative because it is so easy to eat an excess, thereby crowding out more nutrient-dense foods and seriously distorting the balance of body systems and nutrient elements. Fat supplies nine calories per gram, which is more than double the four calories per gram which comes from carbohydrate and protein. That is why a little goes a long way. Too much fat is implicated in a number of diseases ranging from heart disease to a variety of cancers. Most people are concerned about too much fat because of its effect on their appearance. However, being overweight has more critical implications than our looks. It contributes to heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and osteoarthritis. Your liver is manufacturing it now, as you read, at the rate of about 50,000,000,000,000,000 molecules per...

Nutrition and the Mind Introduction

In 1995, it is estimated that our national sickness care system will account for more than 1.3 trillion dollars of our money. That's more than we spend on defense, housing, food, and education combined. The problem is that we are not seeing major breakthroughs, cures, or even successful prevention programs for any of the serious diseases. We hear a great deal about cancer, AIDS, heart disease, and arthritis. But the largest single disorder group in America is mental illness.

Avoiding mineral deficiency

Check with your doctor before downing iron supplements or cereals fortified with 100 percent of your daily iron requirement, the Environmental Nutrition newsletter warns. Hemochromatosis, a common but often-undi-agnosed genetic defect affecting one in every 250 Americans, can lead to iron overload, an increased absorption of the mineral linked to arthritis, heart disease, and diabetes, as well as an increased risk of infectious diseases and cancer (viruses and cancer cells thrive in iron-rich blood).

Physical Activity and Exercise

The contribution of physical inactivity to the development of Type 2 diabetes is discussed in Chapter 2. Structured physical activity (exercise) should be recommended as an adjunct to proper diet and weight control and may even be protective against the development of Type 2 diabetes (Helmrich et al 1991). Brisk walking for 30 minutes each day or swimming for 4560 minutes up to three times per week are appropriate for older people. Prolonged or unusual exercise may be harmful, however, especially in those with underlying cardiovascular disease, those on insulin therapy (because of delayed hypoglycaemia), and those with sensory loss in their feet where tissue damage may be sustained. In general, exercise has several beneficial actions lowering of hyperinsulinaemia and an improvement in glucose tolerance occurs probably secondary to a reduction in insulin resistance (Koivisto 1991). The lipid profile becomes less atherogenic with a reduction in total plasma cholesterol and triglycerides...

Applications And Exclusions

If a patient has a diagnosed hypertension, temporal arthritis, or previous stroke one should be cautious with the tension training and assess the BP frequently to make sure that the BP does not rise to a level that is too high. However, it may be the case that blood phobic

Chen Hunyuan Tai Ji Quan

The principles of Taiji needs Yin and Yang to balance. It does not matter which family's style of Taijiquan you do Chen, Yang, Wu, Woo or Sun. All of them cover Yin and Yang and are good Taijiquan. Traditional Chinese martial arts all cover Yin and Yang - soft and hard, internal and external training, movement and meditation. Many of today's martial artists only consider fighting, how to be aggressive and tough. Going this way will not make you healthy. Eventually you will have problems with your joints, arthritis, heart problems and maybe even cancer. Some miss the Yin and others miss the Yang. How can this be healthy and balanced and bring you to a high level of martial art

Stress Myocardial Perfusion Imaging

Responses cannot be interpreted accurately, such as patients with left ventricular hypertrophy, those with left bundle branch block or pre-excitation syndrome, and those receiving digitalis. Stress myocardial perfusion scintigraphy should not be used as a screening test in patients with low pretest probability of CAD, because the majority of abnormal tests will yield false-positive results.7 Given that the results with thallium-201 are comparable to those obtained with 99mTc-sestamibi or 99mTc-tetrofosmin, these agents can, generally, be used interchangeably for the diagnosis of CAD.6 For patients who are unable to exercise, especially the elderly and those with peripheral vascular disease, pulmonary disease, arthritis, or a previous stroke,pharmacological vasodilator stress with dipyridamole or adenosine may be used.

MHC and Disease Susceptibility

Iron instead of the normal 3 to 4 grams. The iron overload results in pathologic accumulation of iron in cells of many organs, including the heart and liver. Although a severe form of HH may result in heart disease in children, the clinical manifestations of the disease are not usually seen until 40 to 50 years of age. Males are affected eight times more frequently than females. Early symptoms of HH are rather nonspecific and include weakness, lethargy, abdominal pain, diabetes, impotence, and severe joint pain. Physical examination of HH sufferers reveals liver damage, skin pigmentation, arthritis, en- larged spleen, jaundice, and peripheral edema. Ifuntreated, HH results in hepatic cancer, liver failure, severe diabetes, and heart disease. Exactly how the increase in iron content results in these diseases is not known, but repeated phlebotomy (taking blood) is an effective treatment if the disease is recognized before there is extensive damage to organs. Phlebotomy does not reverse...

Alternative Health As Process

Whether cancer cells or different types of cells, it's the stress and negativity that sets these things in motion. Sure they could be in five hundred people maybe four hundred of them will set them in motion. The other one hundred realize that the thinking process keeps those last one hundred from setting their cells in motion. What happens with negative thinking is that you end up with problems. It becomes your heart problems rigid thinking becomes your arthritis. Each of these thinking patterns creates a different disease in the body.

Choose Your Foods Wisely

(Healthy Heart Habits for a Long, Vital Life) Today, many of our foods are highly processed or refined, robbing them of essential nutrients, vitamins, minerals and enzymes. Many also contain harmful, toxic and dangerous chemicals. The research findings and experience of top nutritionists, physicians and dentists have led to the discovery that devitalized foods are a major cause of poor health, illness, cancer and premature death. The enormous increase in the last 70 years of degenerative diseases such as heart disease, arthritis and dental decay substantiate this belief. Scientific research has shown that most of these afflictions can be prevented and that others, once established, can be arrested or even reversed through nutritional methods. USA leads the world in heart disease, strokes, cancer and diabetes Why It's our fast junk foods, high sugars, fats, milk and processed foods diet.

The Pottenger Cat Study

Those cats on the deficient diets could not produce a fourth generation, and the first generation already showed the first signs of degradation, such as heart problems, underactive thyroid and bladder, arthritis, inflammation of the nervous system, and various infections. Second and third generations of cats on the deficient diet also suffered from an acceleration of these symptoms and showed a general decrease in the health of reproductive organs.

History and Characteristics

Some drugs responsible for blocking or excreting potassium are sodium, lithium, tetraethyl ammonium, aspirin, diuretics, cortisone, DCA, aldosterone treatment and thiazide or digitalis (both used for cardiovascular diseases). Patients taking certain medications for heart problems may also be lacking in potassium. For instance, diuretics given to ease the heart's burden of having to pump excess fluids out of the body leach out potassium in the meantime, placing an even greater strain on the heart. In addition, the drug digitalis or vasodilators for heart ailments will not prove effective unless enough potassium is present without the mineral the heart cannot pump blood with adequate force, and there may be a weakened pulse and weak heart sounds. Tachycardia (the heart racing rapidly for no apparent reason) can be controlled by supplements of potassium as well.

Enforcement of Truthin Advertising Laws

The surf days identified approximately 800 World Wide Web sites and numerous Usenet newsgroups that contain questionable promotions for products or services purporting to help cure, treat or prevent six diseases heart disease, cancer, AIDS, diabetes, arthritis, and multiple sclerosis. After each Surf Day, web sites were sent e-mail messages, alerting them that their claims require scientific substantiation and that disseminating false or unsubstantiated claims violates federal law. Following the e-mail, FTC staff surveyed a representative sample and found that 28 percent of the sites had either removed their claims or had been taken down. The Director of the FTC's Bureau of Consumer Protection said that the agency is very encouraged by the fact that over a hundred sites making questionable claims voluntarily cleaned up their act, but warned that the agency will continue to monitor the Web for fraud and deception and bring law enforcement cases as appropriate (Federal Trade Commission,...

Functional Nutrition Eat Your Omegas and s

Research suggests that omega-3s may help thin blood and prevent blood platelets from clotting and sticking to artery walls. That, in turn, may help lower the risk for blocked blood vessels and heart attacks and strokes. Omega-3s may help prevent arteries from hardening, lower levels of triglycerides, and modestly reduce blood pressure levels. Even if scientific evidence eventually completely understands the link, omega-3 fatty acids by themselves aren't a magic remedy for heart disease-and you can't simply add them to your meals and snacks to get the potential benefits. Combined with eating less What about omega-6s (polyunsaturated fatty acids in vegetable oils) They, too, may help reduce cardiovascular disease risk by helping to lower total and LDL-cholesterol blood levels however, they also may lower HDL levels. Omega-6 (linoleic) fatty acids. Another group of polyunsaturated fatty acids. They, too, may help promote heart health by lowering total and LDL

Iron a Double Edged Sword

The importance of this observation is demonstrated by the fact that men are four times more likely to suffer a coronary heart attack than premenopausal women at age forty-five years. At this age, men have iron stores four times higher than women. Further, men with higher iron levels have heart attack rates two times higher than men with lower levels. In both men and women, iron stores peak between age forty and sixty years. For this reason, iron intake after a certain age should be substantially reduced. For men, that should be around twenty-five years of age, and for women, after menopause. It has even been hypothesized that women have lower incidences of heart attacks and strokes before menopause because of regular iron loss resulting from menstruation.463 After menopause, women accumulate iron at a rate that exceeds men's and develop heart attacks and strokes at a rate equal to men. This does not mean you should never take iron. There are...

Recent Clinical Developments

Number of ailments, including acne, eczema, allergies, rheumatic fever, bronchial asthma, gastrointestinal diseases and myasthenia gravis) has a wide range of toxic side effects that can induce hypertension, hyperglycemia, heart problems, skin ailments, slow healing of wounds, glaucoma and menstrual problems by taking vitamin C with the drug, though, a person has a better chance of avoiding these complications. Another drug, alcohol, consumed in immoderate amounts, can tax the liver, impeding that organ's ability to make enough of the enzyme alcohol dehydrogenase to get rid of the liquor effectively with enough vitamin C the enzyme is able to function more rapidly.

Aging and Longevity

The average human life span in the industrialized countries has increased from 40-45 years to nearly 75 years over the past cen-tury.1 This is due to improved living standards, including better nutrition, medical care, and sanitation. The maximum human life span is thought to be 120 years. Although our genetic potential should allow most people to live to 100 and beyond, few survive to 100 and not many make it to 90. Moreover, living longer does not necessarily mean living better. Degenerative disease - arthritis, heart disease, osteoporosis, cataracts - plague the elderly. There is little sense in striving to extend maximum life span until ways can be found to live out our present-day life span in reasonably good health, with physical and mental vitality. A goal of preventive nutrition is to find ways to compress illness and the degenerative process of aging into a short period preceding death. Rather than dreaming about living to 200, the aim should be to live past 100 and do so in...

Omega Fatty Acids

Some early studies seemed to indicate omega-3 fatty acids had a protective effect against heart attacks and strokes, but different studies produced conflicting results. Some demonstrated a dramatic reduction in heart attacks and strokes, others a minor effect, and some no effect at all. One of the problems with the negative studies was that olive oil was used as a control. Even at that time, it was known that olive oil has slight anticoagulant properties. Thus the control was not a placebo control at all it is physiologically active, as are many such placebos. One extremely large study involving 22,070 male physicians between the ages of forty and eighty-four years of age found that eating one fish per week reduced the incidence of sudden cardiac death by 52 percent.305 This is a dramatic reduction when you consider 250,000 people die of a sudden cardiac arrest every year, and that 55 percent of those people have had no previous history of heart disease. Most will die before reaching...

Obesity

If obesity were merely a matter of aesthetics, it would be of less concern. But obesity is a health issue. It is associated with an increased risk of diabetes, lipid abnormalities, coronary artery disease, high blood pressure, certain cancers (such as breast, colon, and gallbladder in women and colon and prostate in men), stroke, degenerative arthritis, respiratory problems, sleep disturbances, and gallbladder disease.

Ready Set Yoga

Make sure that you're physically ready before you begin this new venture with Yoga or any fitness activity. Consult with your doctor, especially if you have an existing health challenge. Even if your medical history includes experience with hypertension, heart problems, arthritis, or chronic back pain, you can benefit from Yoga. In more severe cases, you may want to work closely with a competent Yoga therapist to create just the right routines and to monitor your progress.

5-a) The (front) heart chakra is located at the center of the chest. It energizes and controls the heart, the thymus gland and the circulatory system. Malfunctioning of the front heart chakra is man ifested in he art a nd circulatory i llnesses. The s olar plexus c hakra is q uite sensitive to emotion, tension and stress, and has strong influence on the physical heart and the front heart chakra. Malfunctioning of the solar plexus chakra may cause the front heart chakra and t he physical he art to a lso m alfunction. The fr ont h eart chakra is closely connected to the fr ont s olar p lexus chakra by s everal b ig b ioplasmic c hannels. It is also energized by the front solar plexus chakra to a certain degree. Patients with heart problems usually have malfunctioning solar plexus chakra.

Pleiotropy

One baby in three thousand to four thousand births is born with neurofibromatosis, an autosomal dominant disease caused by mutation in a tumor suppressor gene that helps regulate cell division and cell-cell contacts. A truncated version of the tumor suppression protein, neurofibromin (NF I) is implicated in the disease. This mutant protein can come from missense or nonsense mutations, or from reading-frame shifts after a repetitive element called Alu is inserted upstream of the NF I reading frame (a reading frame is the DNA that codes for proteins). Because the mutant protein is unable to regulate cell division, tumors grow on the nerves throughout the body. The tumors produce collateral damage low blood sugar, intestinal bleeding, cafe-au-lait spots on the skin, mental retardation, heart problems, high blood pressure, fractures, spinal cord lesions, blindness, aneurysms, arthritis, and respiratory distress.

Main Cues

Study found that the report of apnea increased the odds of sleep apnea nine-fold (2) and another sleep clinic-based study found that it increased the odds 19-fold (18). In the Sleep Heart Health Study, witnessed apneas had the highest prevalence of all collected demographic and predictor variables in patients with an apnea-hypopnea index (AHI) > 15 (15). However, the utility of this report is limited by a low sensitivity as only 9 of these sleep apnea subjects reported this symptom (15). Two additional limitations include the fact that not everyone has a bed partner and people may be poor reporters when it comes to describing respiratory events at night (19).

Hemochromatosis

One of the most underdiagnosed genetic diseases is hemochromato-sis, also called iron-overload disease. This trait is recessive. The condition leads to excessive accumulation of iron and basically causes rusting of the organs. This trait appears to be much more common than previously thought, with approximately 1 in 200 to 400 individuals affected, and approximately 1 in 10 are carriers. The multitude of symptoms of this disease, from cirrhosis of the liver to cancer, heart problems, diabetes, and arthritis, makes accurate diagnosis, based only on phenotype, difficult.

Answers

The answer is b. (Braunwald, 15 e, pp 2008-2010.) The clinical picture suggests hypertrophic osteoarthropathy. This process, the pathogene-sis of which is unknown, is characterized by clubbing of digits, periosteal new bone formation, and arthritis. Hypertrophic osteoarthropathy is associated with intrathoracic malignancy, suppurative lung disease, and congenital heart problems. Treatment is directed at the underlying disease process. While x-rays may suggest osteomyelitis, the process is usually bilateral and easily distinguishable from osteomyelitis. The first step in evaluation of this patient is to obtain a chest x-ray looking for lung infection and carcinoma. 126. The answer is c. (Braunwald, 15 e, p 1509.) While all of these signs and symptoms can occur in acute pulmonary embolus, tachypnea is by far the most common. Tachypnea occurs in more than 90 of patients with pulmonary embolus. Pleuritic chest pain occurs in about half of patients and is less common in the elderly...

Lead to anemia and age-related hearing loss. Along with other B vitamins, folate from food may play a role in heart health, by removing homocysteine from the bloodstream high homocysteine levels are a potential risk factor for heart disease.

Weight for Health

Are you at your healthy weight Appearance or fitting into a clothes size are commonly cited reasons to maintain a healthy weight. Yet, even a few pounds of excess weight may be riskier than you think. Research shows that too much body fat increases risks for high blood pressure and unhealthy blood lipid (fats) levels as well as type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke, gall bladder disease, breathing problems, gout, osteoarthritis, and certain cancers. Did you know that excess body weight is linked to premature death, too
