The Path to Heart Problems

When it comes to preventing heart attack, heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and stroke, it’s important to have a healthy heart. What most people don’t understand is that when you’re not moving, when you’re not active, when you don’t have a healthy brain and nervous system, your vascular system becomes unhealthy.

You get what’s called Atherosclerosis, which is when your blood vessels get constricted and tight, they get hardened and they start to clog. Because of this damage, this inflammation, your body will stimulate response of cholesterol. That’ll clog it up more. You’ll get high blood pressure and so on and so forth down that line.

Tips to Prevent Heart Problems

Exercise Regularly

Number one you want to make sure that you’re exercising at least three to four times a week. Even just a 30 minute walk per day decreases your heart attack risk by 50%!

You do want to get some more vigorous exercise in where you’re getting your heart rate up. At least 80% of your target heart range, which is 220 minus your age to start training your heart because the heart basically is a muscle. The more you move, the healthier your heart is.

Maintain a Healthy Brain and Nervous System

Number two is you want to make sure you have a healthy brain and nervous system because the nerves to your heart control how your heart repairs and regenerates and there’s two main areas that control the nerve supply to your heart.

Area number one is right at the base of the neck, the C1. This is your brainstem. This is the autonomic control of your heart. This regulates heart rate, heartbeat, blood pressure, and it stimulates normal stress response to your heart itself.

Area number two is at the base of the neck or right at the upper back. These are the nerves that go directly into our heart and repair and regenerate the cells and tissues of your heart every 90 days.

You have proper nerve supply when you have a healthy spine and nervous system because you have the proper alignment and everything is moving the way it should. There is nothing interfering with repair, regeneration, and health of your heart, thus decreasing your risk of any cardiovascular issues.

In fact, studies show that with regular chiropractic care, your risk of heart disease goes down, but also your functional performance goes up. Heart rate variability improves, the improvement of oxygen and blood flow to the organs and tissues improves, and every area gets better.

So to have a healthier heart this year, you want to make sure:

  1. You’re exercising more, you’re moving every single day.
  2. You have a healthy spine and a healthy brain and nervous system to make sure nothing is interfering with the health of your heart.
