Coronary Artery Disease

Naturopathic Coronary Artery Disease Treatment

Coronary Artery Disease is the most common form of heart disease and the leading cause of heart attacks and death worldwide. It refers to the buildup of plaque on the inner surfaces of the main arteries that supply blood to the heart. Eventually, the level of plaque will begin to restrict blood flow to the heart, which can cause heart attacks and strokes.

Coronary artery disease takes years and years to develop and is often not discovered until someone suffers a massive heart attack; however, there are some warning signs to look out for when it comes to coronary artery disease. If you experience tightness in the chest or chest pains or if you have trouble breathing or shortness of breath, especially after exercising, these symptoms could indicate that you have coronary artery disease.  Coronary artery disease occurs when there is damage to an inner layer of a coronary artery. Smoking, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes can all contribute to having a higher chance of developing coronary artery disease. Physical inactivity, bad dietary habits and high levels of stress can also contribute to the buildup of plaque in the arteries of the heart.
