ANGINA PECTORIS

Angina pectoris is a crushing or gripping pain in the chest, caused by insufficient blood passing through the coronary arteries of the heart. Some causes of angina pectoris are exertion or excitement, this may be physical effort, stress or increased circulation required for the digestion of a meal, but is particularly caused by cold, windy weather.

Suffering from angina does not mean a person has to live the life of an invalid. Simple changes in the way of life often reduce the symptoms considerably. Some life changing ways are:

  • avoiding all harmful foods
  • cutting out smoking
  • eating the correct diet
  • reducing weight
  • taking more holidays
  • taking suitable exercise

Avoidance of exercise is not necessary through fear of exertion, lack of exercise and a bad diet are two of the main causes of heart complaints.

FACTS ABOUT ANGINA PECTORIS

Certain sources claim that a glass or two of sherry a day is good for the heart and circulation. If this is true, then it is the only alcohol to consume. Shun all other alcohol.

Avoid stressful situations causing anxiety.

Vitamin E supplement is essential for the treatment of this condition. A 7 day juice fast once every 4 months is beneficial but continue taking vitamin E daily even when you are fasting. How to fast is explained when you get to juice fast in this book.

Taking a vitamin supplement during a fast is an exception not the rule.

DIET

Follow the health diet putting emphasis on a low sodium, high potassium vegetarian diet. Fruit, vegetables and garlic are of specific value. Limit the use of dairy products. Low-fat foods and soured milk are best. Goat’s milk and its products are best to use instead of cow’s milk. Most large supermarkets sell goat’s milk and other goat’s milk products at the time of writing. Grain products, cooked or sprouted can be eaten in moderation.
