Clogging of the arteries is among the most significant health challenges facing developed countries. While surgery and pharmaceutical drugs have been developed to treat the results of poor cardio vascular health, an integrative holistic approach and healthy lifestyle are needed to address and prevent the causes.
Cardio health hinges on the following four factors:
A diet that is low in salt, sugars, animal fats, and carbohydrates while being abundant in green vegetables, DHA and omega3 oils, fibre, probiotic bacteria and protein.
Consistent daily aerobic exercise.
A minimum average of eight hours of rest each night.
Combining a lifestyle of manageable stress levels with practices such as meditation that help overcome the effects of stressful experiences.
