Causes, treatments and studies of Cardiovascular diseases
Most scientists and doctors look at the heart simply as a muscle and this reduced perception dramatically diminishes their understanding of cardiac events. The heart is not just physical muscle tissue; it is a vast electromagnetic center that is easily influenced by our emotions and feelings. It is also influenced by the way we eat, our lifestyle choices, our breathing, the medicine we take, where we live etc.
Cardiovascular diseases vary from person to person, but it is responsible for the death of 17.5 million people in 2012, representing 31% of all global deaths.
Chronic heart disease tends to develop slowly, with symptoms of fatigue, shortness of breath and swelling in the legs often developing before a major attack. The underlying cause of these symptoms is a loss of pumping capacity by the heart, which may be due to persistent high blood pressure, high cholesterol, irregular heartbeats, hardened arteries, a previous heart attack, diabetes, overweight and obesity, Poor diet, Physical inactivity, smoking, excessive alcohol use, lung disease or thyroid gland problems and of course deficiencies in vital nutrients and electrolytes like magnesium, iodine and selenium all lead to heart disease.
