A Natural Approach To Health
Living With an Aneurysm
I had a question the other day about an aneurysm.
An aneurysm is a bulge in a portion of an artery caused by weakness in the wall of the blood vessel.
If an aneurysm bursts, it can cause serious bleeding and can quickly lead to death.
Aneurysms can form in any blood vessel, but they’re most common in the belly area, which is called an abdominal aortic aneurysm.
They can also happen in the upper body, which is called a thoracic aortic aneurysm.
Blood vessel walls are normally very elastic.
They can stretch and then shrink back as needed to adjust to blood flow.
But some medical problems, like high blood pressure and atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), weaken the artery walls.
These problems, along with the wear and tear naturally occurring with aging, can result in weak blood vessel walls that bulge outward.
Most aneurysms don’t cause symptoms.
People who do have symptoms usually complain of belly, chest, or back pain.
The symptoms may come and go or stay constant.
In the worst case, an aneurysm can burst, or rupture.
This causes severe pain and bleeding.
It often leads to death within minutes to hours.
To deal with an aneurysm it’s beneficial to:
*Drink 8-10 cups of purified water daily to hydrate and flush toxins.
*Drink lots of pure organic pomegranate juice.
*The top 10 foods for cardiovascular health are: Fresh fruit, beans and legumes, fish, dark leafy greens, avocados, whole grains, nuts, soy foods, spices and herbs, and wheat germ and flax meal.
*Eat plenty of raw foods. For protein, eat broiled fish and skinless turkey and chicken.
*Include garlic and onions in your diet.
*Don’t consume things with caffeine.
*Eliminate sodium from your diet.
*If you take a blood thinner, limit your intake of foods high in vitamin K (alfalfa, broccoli, cauliflower, egg yolks, liver, spinach, and all dark green vegetables). Eat more wheat germ, vitamin E, soybeans, and sunflower seeds.
*Keep your weight down. Get regular moderate exercise.
*Avoid stress. Increase stress and relaxation techniques: yoga, meditation, prayer, deep breathing, etc. Consider energy medicine.
*Increase fresh air, sunshine, connect with nature.
*Increase fiber intake; ensure good bowel function; avoid constipation; consider liver and/or colon cleanse.
*Consider an arterial cleansing program.
*Investigate use of herbs (hawthorn, valerian).
*Monitor blood pressure, cholesterol, triglyceride and homocysteine levels.
*Decrease toxic exposures of all kinds (food and environmental).
*Decrease any and all hydrogenated, trans fats, deep-fried foods, margarine, fast foods, etc.
*Decrease sugar, sweets, white flour products, processed foods.
*Understand your medications and possible side effects.
*Understand your family history and address any concerns.
*Investigate possible connection to dental procedures; consult a holistic dentist.
*Eliminate MSG and all artificial sweeteners as they are neurotoxins.
*Decrease processed meats, deli meats (nitrates).
