Surprising solution: This non-toxic prescription leads to improved heart health in only six months
(NaturalHealth365) Nearly half of all Americans have some form of heart disease. It is also concerning that one in eight people who suffer from heart disease cannot afford their medication. So, let’s talk about a solution that most conventionally trained doctors tend to ignore.
Scientists have determined that a surprising treatment modality improves heart health in a mere six months. The treatment modality cannot be found at your local drugstore. Instead of taking even more financial kickbacks from Big Pharma, an increasing number of holistic doctors are prescribing the all-natural route to heart health: a healthy diet.
Exploring the impact of “produce prescriptions:” A nationwide study on heart health enhancement
The study consisted of a multisite evaluation of nine food prescription programs across the country. Such “produce prescriptions” have the potential to enhance heart health though results differ based on the level of heart deficiency and individual biochemistry.
The study analyzed data from nearly two dozen produce prescription locations spanning 12 states between 2014 and 2020. In total, 3,881 people participated in the study. Of this group, 2,064 were adults aged 18 and above, while 1,817 were kids between the ages of 2 and 17. The study participants were at risk for or suffered from poor heart health.
The study’s outcomes, recently published in Circulation: Cardiovascular Quality and Outcomes, underscore the significant benefits of shifting from processed foods to a wholesome, natural diet, primarily comprising fresh fruits and vegetables. Remarkably, within just six months, the following improvements were observed:
- A remarkable 0.29% reduction in glycated hemoglobin.
- A substantial reduction of 8.38 mmHg in both diastolic and systolic blood pressure.
- Notable progress in body mass index, with a reduction of 0.36 kg/m².
This compelling data also highlights noteworthy enhancements in blood pressure among the study participants, showcasing the transformative power of embracing a healthier dietary approach.
Diet vs. drugs: Study unveils critical heart health debate
The study holds immense importance as it sheds light on a long-standing issue that has affected doctors, the medical industry, and patients for decades – the conflict of interest. It reveals a little-known truth that doctors, despite their years of medical education, often lack a comprehensive understanding of the vital role that diet plays in heart health.
While medical professionals tend to lean towards pharmaceutical interventions, the study underscores a growing realization: the quality of one’s nutrition may be more crucial for heart health than the pharmaceutical solutions offered by Big Pharma.
This leads to a pressing question: Could the patient’s willingness to rely on a succession of heart medications instead of seeking guidance on healthy eating be a contributing factor to the epidemic of chronic diseases?
As more people recognize that prescription drugs often serve to manage health conditions without addressing the root cause of the problem, a paradigm shift in the approach to heart health becomes increasingly imperative.
How to boost your heart health without relying on Big Pharma “solutions”
Enhancing your heart health doesn’t require depending on profit-driven Big Pharma concoctions. Instead, prioritize a well-rounded approach with diet and exercise as your main allies. In fact, dedicating just 20 minutes a day to exercise and adopting a heart-healthy diet can yield results that often surpass those achieved through pharmaceutical interventions.
Embrace heart-healthy foods, such as nutrient-rich organic leafy greens like kale, collard greens, spinach, broccoli, and cabbage. Additionally, incorporate organic fruits, whole grains, nuts, seeds, sprouts and herbal teas into your diet – all of which actively support heart health.
To break free from dependency on Big Pharma, make mindful choices by substituting unhealthy fats like processed vegetable oils with healthy fats like avocado or coconut oil; minimize your consumption of alcohol, and replace high-sodium, high-sugar foods with heart-healthy alternatives. By taking these steps, you empower yourself to proactively manage your heart health and reduce reliance on pharmaceutical solutions.
