What is cardiovascular disease?
Cardiovascular disease generally refers to the heart, brain and systemic tissue ischemic or hemorrhagic diseases caused by hyperlipidemia, blood viscosity, atherosclerosis, hypertension and so on.
It is a common disease that seriously threatens the health of human beings, especially middle-aged elderly people over 50 years old. It has the characteristic of high morbidity, high disability rate and high mortality.
What causes cardiovascular disease?
The main reason for the disease is unhealthy dietary habits and living habits.
Unhealthy dietary habits can cause a variety of problems so as to increase the risk of cardiovascular disease. For example,
-eating food high in salt can elevate blood pressure. Chronic hypertension can thicken or harden arterial walls and narrow lumen, thereby affecting blood supply to the heart and brain. It can also put extra stress on heart, leading to heart disease or heart failure.
-eating food high in fat can raise blood cholesterol level, which is a common cause of cardiovascular disease as well.
-alcohol intake has a direct dose-dependent effect on hemorrhagic stroke. People who consume more than 50 grams of alcohol a day have an increased risk of heart and brain infarction. Long-term and large quantities of alcohol can make platelet in blood increase so as to cause arrhythmia, hypertension and high blood cholesterol, making cardiovascular disease more likely to happen.
-eating food high in sugar and seldom participating in exercises can cause diabetes. Diabetes is an independent risk factor for heart disease or ischemic stroke.
-Smoking. Nicotine can increase the content of adrenalin in plasma, promote platelet aggregation and endothelial cell contraction, and cause the increase of blood viscosity.
Besides, with environmental pollution, the anion content in air drops sharply, and then the anion that takes in body is insufficient also. These factors can slow down metabolism and blood flow, and elevate blood viscosity, leading to insufficient blood supply to the heart and brain.
In addition, obesity, insulin resistance, aging, gender (higher incidence in men than in women), race, genetics and other risk factors are also related to cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases.
How do we treat cardiovascular disease?
Traditional Chinese Medicine believes that the excess is toxic. For example, proper sugar is necessary for maintaining the normal function of body, but when blood sugar level is high, it is toxic and cause many problems. The same is with fat, salt, trace elements, etc. In our hospital, we have "Chinese Medicine Nine-Kind Therapy" for cardiovascular disease. This treatment aims at solving the toxins in the blood, and setting up a good internal environment so as to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.
"Nine-Kind Therapy" include:
1. Double Plasma Exchange Therapy. It is to clean up the toxins in the blood thoroughly.
2. Chinese Medicine Detoxification Therapy. It mainly makes use of oral Chinese medicine to thoroughly reclean the residual toxins in the blood after dual plasma exchange therapy.
3. Chinese Medicine Blood-Activating Therapy. It is to clear away the blood toxins sticking to the blood vessel via TCM infusion.
4. Cell Infusion Therapy. It is to repair cells damaged by blood pollution.
5. Cytokine Infusion Therapy. It is to eliminate inflammatory factors caused by immune stress in blood.
6. Negative Oxygen Ion Therapy. It is to clean up and remove the toxins in the cells, and keep the cell environment clean.
7. Ozone Therapy. It is to make the blood more fresh, especially the hemoglobin more active.
8. Trace Element and Vitamin Supplementary Therapy. It is to make the nutrition more balanced in body, and provide essential elements for kidney self-healing.
9.Developing Good Living Habits. It is the guarantee of human blood cleanliness. The cultivation of good living habits includes learning to drink, eat, exercise (including work and rest), releasing pressure and so on. Learning to drink and eat depends on self-control; learning to exercise and keeping happy is not only a habit, but also a civilization.
To what extent can we treat cardiovascular disease?
-High blood pressure, high cholesterol level and high glucose level can be reduced and stabilized.
-Your symptoms such as shortness of breath, headache, nausea, vomiting, back pain, dizziness, weakness and so on will get great relief. Your limb movement will become flexible, and you can even stand up from wheelchair.
What precautions should be taken on cardiovascular disease?
-To measure blood pressure regularly and control it into an ideal range.
-To adjust unhealthy lifestyle. For example, to reduce salt intake, to avoid too much sugar intake, to restrict in fat intake, to avoid smoking and alcohol drinking, etc.
-To take part in exercises regularly, which is helpful for controlling blood pressure, blood cholesterol and blood sugar.
