The foremost degenerative process is age and can be defined as a reduction in circulating stem cells. Since EECP has been shown to increase the level of circulating stem cells, it is likely to slow the effects of aging. By keeping the blood flowing to all organs oxygen and nutrients delivered to the cells, , which helps “keeps them alive”.
EECP offers not only therapeutic benefits, but amazing potential to prevent or at least slow the onset of many of the diseases that are so prevalent in modern-day living, including aging. With aging this micro-circulation gradually closes down slowing the flow of blood, oxygen and nutrients to our cells. Without sufficient oxygen and nutrients cells gradually become less efficient and die.
We have over 60,000 miles of blood vessels in our body, which pulsate with our heartbeat an average of 100,000 times a day. The blood and cardiovascular system are an ongoing miracle bringing life to our body. Take care of them!
Cholesterol can’t dissolve in the blood. It has to be transported to and from the cells by carriers called lipoproteins. Low-density lipoprotein, or LDL, is known as “bad” cholesterol. High-density lipoprotein, or HDL, is known as “good” cholesterol. These two types of lipids, along with triglycerides and Lp(a) cholesterol (genetic), make up your total cholesterol count, which can be determined through a blood test.
LDL (Bad) Cholesterol
When too much LDL (bad) cholesterol circulates in the blood, it can slowly build up in the inner walls of the arteries that feed the heart and brain. Together with other substances, it can form plaque, a thick, hard deposit that can narrow the arteries. If a clot forms and blocks a narrowed artery, heart attack or stroke can result. Your desirable LDL is bellow 200mg/dL.
HDL (Good) Cholesterol
About one-fourth to one-third of blood cholesterol is carried by high-density lipoprotein (HDL). HDL cholesterol is known as “good” cholesterol, because high levels of HDL seem to protect against heart attack. Low levels of HDL (less than 40 mg/dL) also increase the risk of heart disease. Some experts believe that HDL removes excess cholesterol from arterial plaque, slowing its buildup. Your HDL ideal numberis around 100-129 mg/dL.
Triglyceride is a form of fat made in the body. Elevated triglycerides can be due to overweight/obesity, physical inactivity, cigarette smoking, excess alcohol consumption and a diet very high in carbohydrates. People with high triglycerides often have a high total cholesterol level. Your desirable number is 150mg/dL. Let’s watch the video and practice our Spanish level:
Ischemia itself is a condition known for the restriction of blood flow to a particular part of the body. In the case of chronic ischemic heart disease, blood flow is restricted to the heart muscle.
Ischemia can cause chest pain and the same discomfort related to angina.
What is silent ischemia? Is a heart attack with no symptoms and no warning.
Reports have indicated that over three million Americans experience ischemic episodes with no symptoms. These people experience episodes without pain and as a result experience a heart attack with no warning. Most people ask what is silent ischemia and the answer is very straight forward. There is no pain or symptoms related to this condition.
