Your heart health is not something to be taken lightly. Although 50% of cardiovascular-disease risk is genetic, the other 50% can be modified by how you live your life. According to the studies carried by Dr. Sebi and the Dr. Sebi's Research Institute, all manifestation of disease finds its genesis when and where the mucous membrane has been compromised. For example, if there is excess mucus in the bronchial tubes, the disease is Bronchitis; if it is in the lungs, the disease is Pneumonia; in the pancreatic duct, it is Diabetes; in the joints Arthritis. This also includes your heart and your whole cardiovascular system!
What can you do to keep your heart in tip-top shape? Follow these 6 simple rules to keep it beating as strongly as ever!
Add More Plants To Your Diet. If you adhere to Dr. Sebi's methodology, you are already eating plant-based, and feeling amazing because of it! However, if you want an extra-boost of minerals and nutrients to support your heart health, adding more leafy greens and other veggies to your diet is a marvelous idea. Amaranth and dandelion greens, lettuce, purslane, watercress and wild arugula are all great options.
Eat Healthy Fats. We don't need to tell you to stay away from animal fats and dairy - we know you already ditch them from your diet. But adding some healthy, plant-based fats to your diet is fantastic for your heart health. What kind of fats can you eat? Those that appear in the Nutritional Guide, such as walnuts, Brazil nuts, avocados and olive oil (raw).
Slash Refined Sugar. You already know how awful sugar is for your waistline, but Dr. Sebi believed that it was one of the most perjudicial things you could put in your body: it causes mucus and promotes acidity in the body, which is terrible for your heart and cardiovascular system.
Watch Your Stress. Believe it or not, stress can increase your risk of heart disease 2.5-foldâ€”similar to smoking and diabetes. Thatâ€™s because chronic stress puts the body into constant fight-or-flight mode, triggering inflammation, high blood pressure and other unhealthy changes. A cup of Dr. Sebi's Nerve/Stress Relief Herbal Tea and 10 minutes of "me-time" can do wonders for your anxiety and stress.
Don't Smoke - Ever. Cigarettes are terrible for your lungs. But they are also incredibly bad for your heart, and even one can have an impact on your cardiovascular health. Smoking even a single cigarette can induce changes that lead to a heart attack. Smoking increases your risk of atherosclerosis, raises your chances of blood clots, reduces blood flow and puts you at increased risk for stroke. We recommend you give Dr. Sebi's Viento a try to fight those cravings during the quitting process, while also cleansing your blood, lungs and improving your immunity.
Reduce Your Salt Consumption. If you eat too much salt, the extra water stored in your body raises your blood pressure. So, the more salt you eat, the higher your blood pressure. The higher your blood pressure, the greater the strain on your heart, arteries, kidneys and brain. This can lead to heart attacks, strokes, dementia and kidney disease. A small amount of sea salt is okay.
