Everyone is different, I'm not a doctor, and haven't worked as a biochemist for decades, but can give some layman's advice, that shouldn't cause harm anyway.
Do carefully Googling, being cynical about much of the rubbish out there. My understanding is that heart attacks are often caused by inflammation and/or blocked arteries. A good healthy diet with limited fried food, lots of different coloured vegetables and fruit will help to reduce inflammation and cholesterol (the main cause of plaque which blocks arteries). The many coloured bit is because plants contain antioxidant flavonoids that are what supplies the varied colours. Dark ones like blueberries and plums are particularly effective, but all contribute.
I take it further using oat bran and oats for a daily porridge to scour bad cholesterol out. My level is low at 3.1 and my arteries are totally clear of plaque, despite my being overweight and over 60. There are plant steroid margarines that work, and doctors can prescribe statins.
Gentle exercise can possibly help, but get lots of advice about that as everyone is different, and I don't want you to get a head start on concluding our discussions on whether there is a god or not.
Hard work, if well planned, is more effective
I'm using a similar pattern. This is one of our reasons for spending time gardening as it lets the F&V be absolutely fresh. At present, we are putting out and planting cool weather crops. Also, I'm recycling some clear plastic, with bricks, etc. on top to prevent blowing around. This should help with the warm weather crops in a few weeks.
tenshinai]Cutting down on sugar is a HUGE health help for lots of people nowadays.
Ridiculously much sugar in so much "food".
Oh and BTW, do NOT do the mistake of using "sugarfree" replacements, because the stuff used in most of them is even worse than sugar, some of artificial sweeteners are outright near toxic and even considered toxic/dangerous goods when transported.[/quote]
FWIR, a few people have conquered a case of cancer by going to a sugar free, low starch diet. This is very hard to do today! Make it a point to actually read the ingredients on cans, bottles, and packages
For example, i mentioned magnesium above, ask doctors and MANY doctors DO know that it´s a good addition if you have heart issues(or almost any kind of muscle issues), but very very few actually actively proscribe it on their own initiative. Because it´s not a "hard cure", it does not have an easy to point out and predictable effect.
In the US, there is a problem in that prescribing a non-standard method can open the door to the ambulance chasers. I still think that a law allowing every person to use whatever method they choose, as long as the method and results are posted to a public data base would make sense. If nothing else, it greatly enlarges the size of the test pool! Who knows, maybe some form of snake oil is actually effective for some particular condition
[quote'="smr"]In all seriousness, their is heavy duty vitamin C tablet that is encase in fat to deliver the maximum benefit. The reason they encase the vitamin in fat is to allow most of the vitamin to be absorbed without being destroyed by stomach acid.[/quote]
Interesting, but what is the brand name? I did a search, but didn't find it. There is also a reversa(something) with a protection for better digestion.
I'm currently experimenting with the "apple cider vinegar tea & garcinia pill" before breakfast idea. There hasn't been much weight loss (yet), but I've noticed a higher energy level
