Heart Healthy


A healthy life style can help prevent heart disease even when your genetics or family history says otherwise.

Did you know that Blood Type AB has the highest risk of coronary artery disease (CAD)? CAD is the most common form of heart disease. Being a non-secretor has the same risk, followed by Blood Type A with a slightly lower risk. Complications of coronary artery disease is chest pain, heart attack and sudden cardiac death. Heart disease is the leading cause of death for people over the age of 45 in the United States.

BLOOD TYPE O

  1. Lean, organic lamb and mutton

  2. Richly oiled cold water fish

  3. Olive oil

  4. Walnuts

  5. Seaweeds

  6. Broccoli

  7. Spinach, kale, collards

  8. Maitake mushrooms

  9. Pineapple

  10. Blueberries, cherries, elderberries

  11. Turmeric

  12. Green tea

Like any other tissue in the body, the heart needs its own supply of oxygen and nutrients which are supplied by the coronary arteries that feed the heart. When the supply is cut off for any reason the heart tissue begins to starve and die. When the heart muscle begins to die it is called a heart attack or myocardial infarction. If too much tissue is damaged the heart becomes weak and has less strength to pump, it may falter all together or stop. Some risk factors that increase your chances of developing heart disease can be changed. With that being said most risk factors can be prevented with healthy giving lifestyle practices. Risk factors include HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE, HIGH CHOLESTEROL, SMOKING, OBESITY & PHYSICAL INACTIVITY.

BLOOD TYPE A

  1. Soy foods

  2. Richly oiled cold water fish

  3. Olive oil

  4. Walnuts

  5. Mushrooms (maitake/silver dollar)

  6. Garlic

  7. Leafy green vegetables

  8. Blueberries, blackberries, cherries

  9. Pineapple

  10. Ginger

  11. Herbal teas (chamomile, echinacea)

  12. Green tea

Genetic information such as blood type and secretor status provide a great base for building a personalized lifestyle plan. Studies show these biomarkers accurately pinpoint who will suffer from cardiovascular disease from one of the risk factors, and who may develop it for a completely different reason. A recently identified risk factor homocysteine is responsible for coronary, peripheral and cerebral vascular disease. This dangerous substance has a direct toxic effect on the lining of blood vessels and promotes blood clots.

BLOOD TYPE B

  1. Lean, organic lamb and mutton

  2. Richly oiled cold water fish

  3. Cultured dairy foods (yogurt, kefir)

  4. Olive oil

  5. Black walnuts

  6. Shiitake mushrooms

  7. Broccoli

  8. Collards, kale, mustard greens

  9. Pineapple

  10. Cranberries

  11. Herbal teas (dandelion, licorice root)

  12. Turmeric

  13. Green Tea

Moderately elevated levels of homocysteine have multiple causes including low levels of folate, vitamins B6, B12, renal insufficiency, use of certain drugs and genetically determined production or lack of homocysteine enzymes to break it down or metabolize it. Bottom line, increased homocysteine levels increase the risk of heart disease. Blood type diet, blood type appropriate exercise, daily de-stress practices and genotype supplementation has been showing the best way to prevent disease, while building a strong mind, heart and body.
