HEART- What it takes to make it work

HEART

The heart is part of the circulatory system. There is a high pressure side and a low pressure side.

blood pressure

BLOOD PRESSURE

The pressure in the circulatory system is called blood pressure. 120 over 80 is a normal blood pressure with a pulse of 72. The pulse is the rate or speed that the heart pumps at.

How to read blood pressure.

Systolic –

The top number 120 or the highest number is the discharge pressure, This number relates to the mineral calcium in your body, as calcium causes contraction of muscles like the heart and arteries.

Calcium in the blood is regulated by the thyroid and Para thyroid glands. The prober working of the thyroid is provided by t4 to t3 conversion of iodine in the gut, through the bile.

The body saves and recycles calcium, phosphorus, potassium and other minerals and recycles them or discharges them through the urine  if there is too much in the blood. Phosphorous is  an antagonist of calcium as well as magnesium. Magnesium  is  a calcium blocker. This is done  through the kidneys to keep the blood at homeostasis or at a constant state.

Bones-

Although the bones are not part of the circulatory system, they are part of the functioning blood and muscle. they act as a storage system for calcium and phosphorous.  If the blood does not have enough calcium to keep homeostasis it robs it from the bones, it starts disintegrating them. This is all part of mineral regulation in the body. This is why one must take in enough minerals daily to prevent osteoporosis.

Diastolic –

The bottom number relates to magnesium or the relaxation mineral, in the low pressure side of the loop. Magnesium is regulated through the nephrons in the kidneys, as was stated earlier.

Pulse –

The pulse is controlled by potassium. If your potassium is low in your body your pulse rises and your heart beats faster. It is part the sodium potassium ratio. Sodium also is regulated in the kidneys by aldosterone secretion from the adrenal glands. The adrenal glands are you inflammation system control. When inflammation rises in the body its the adrenal’s that go on the offensive to control it. Also the adrenals make your stress hormones. If you are stressed cortisol is releases that negatively  affects the thyroid function.

PARTS

HEART PUMP

ARTERIES

 Arteries are discharge lines leading away the from the heart (pump) under pressure;therefore this line is made of  muscles. Muscle contracts and relaxes and is subject to calcium and magnesium to accomplish this. Therefore there is calcium in the blood and muscle in the veins. Arteries need to be strong and flexible.

VEINS

Veins are return lines leading back to the heart , under very little pressure, the lines is not made of muscle tissue.

LUNGS

The lungs take in oxygen and discharge carbon dioxide. The lungs also help adjust the blood ph.

THE BLOOD

The blood is made up of many things. Serum red blood cells, white blood cells, immune system t cells.

THE TWO REASONS FOR HEART PROBLEMS

1 Nutritional deficiencies

2 Inflammation

TYPES OF HEART CONCERNS

1 CONGESTIVE HEART FAILURE

a weakness of the heart that leads to a buildup of fluid in the lungs and surrounding body tissues. Caused by, lung disease, high blood pressure, because of a restriction in the blood vessels. Vitamins and mineral deficiency, can be  vitamin B1, for the congestive heart failure. And selenium deficiency for the liver. Also check calcium and ratios to other minerals. Cut out sugar and gluten.

2 CARDIOMYOPATHY HEART DISEASE

 – chronic disease of the heart muscle. Needs efa’s, selenium, vitamin E. May need copper for artery flexibility and vitamin c for arteries wall strength

3 CORONARY ARTERY DISEASE

– is when your coronary arteries (the arteries that supply your heart muscle with oxygen-rich blood) become narrowed by a gradual build-up of fatty material within their walls. This condition is called atherosclerosis and the fatty material is called atheroma, arteriosclerosis hardening of the arteries. Caused by eating trans fats, acrylamides, heterocyclic amines.

4 CORONARY THROMBOSIS  –

a blockage of the flow of blood to the heart, caused by a blood clot in a coronary artery.

Which is adjusted by adjusting the ratio between omega 3,6,9 essential fatty acids. Gluten free diet, also no oils, no meat well done, no fried foods,no nitrates, nitrites, or carbonated drinks. Eat eggs butter , salt, vegetables, fruit, rice red meat, and poultry. Vitamin B3 l-arginen

INFLAMATION AND DIET

Inflammation is caused by insulin spikes. Sugar,alcohol, and simple carbs that turn into sugar cause insulin spikes. This causes nicks in the cell walls that line the inside of the blood vessels, and causes them to bleed. The body uses cholesterol, fibrin, and calcium to make a band aide. The cell walls need vitamins to strengthen them and allow them to be flexible. They need to be flexible so blood can flow around a band aide. They need to be strong so they won’t break and cause an aneurism.

Also all oils need to be stopped as they can cause inflammation also. The omega 6 oils need to be in a ratio of 1:1 with omega 3 oils. This stops inflammation. Oils can result in oxidative stress.

MINERAL BALANCE

You need enough mineral intake each day to provide your body with the raw materials that it needs to do all of the above functions.

Minerals in the cells. Minerals are stores in the bones and in the cells out side of the blood. Before the blood gets low minerals the cell storage has to drop. This can be detected by a hair analysis.

CONCLUSIONS

All of these organs have to function properly for the heart to function. All the above mentioned minerals have to be there with enough supply. As you can see it inflammation that is the problem with a heart not cholesterol, which acts as a band aid. The diet has to provide minerals or they have to be supplemented. No food has the necessary minerals in it today as the soils are depleted.
