Do you want to not only live a long life, but alsoin old age to remain a vigorous and strong person? Start in time to fight with atherosclerosis. Diseases caused by the development of atherosclerosis have long been the leading cause of death and disability in most countries of the world. He is the cause of cerebral strokes, ischemic heart disease, lower limb gangrene and many other serious ailments. Of course, without the help of a doctor to talk about the treatment of atherosclerosis is not necessary. However, non-pharmacological treatment of atherosclerosis, carried out including by folk remedies, is officially recognized by physicians - and this atherosclerosis differs from a huge number of other diseases.
Causes and symptoms of atherosclerosis
The very name of the disease - atherosclerosis -means, in translation from the ancient Greek language, "thick porridge." This refers to the "porridge", which is formed in diseased vessels from fatty deposits and blood clots. Atherosclerosis is a systemic disease, if it has already begun, then all the arteries in the body are damaged. However, manifestations of the disease, especially at the first stage, still vary considerably. Most often, the development of atherosclerosis goes in two ways - like atherosclerosis of cerebral vessels and atherosclerosis of the vessels of the lower limbs. Treatment with folk remedies is used for these two variants of atherosclerosis.
Causes of atherosclerosis
Atherosclerosis is a systemic disease of the arteries,it develops long and slowly, and although it affects mainly elderly people, it usually begins when young. The organism necessary for the vital activity energy receives mainly from absorbed fats. But for various reasons, some of this energy may remain unspent. In this case, unused residues are deposited in the vessels in the form of fatty - cholesterol - plaques. Gradually, the lumen arteries narrow, there is an obstacle to the normal blood flow. Inside the vessel a "porridge" of lipids accumulates, the movement of the blood slows down, and thrombi begin to form in the artery, and the wall of the vessel is covered with a layer of calcium deposits. As a result, the supply of tissues with blood by oxygen decreases sharply and ischemia occurs.
Feel the deposition in the arteries of cholesterolplaques can only be after the lumen of the vessel narrows more than 50%. Therefore, it is very difficult to diagnose the development of atherosclerosis in time, people usually start to worry too late. Pay attention even to the weak symptoms of this disease and do not forget about the folk remedies for its prevention.
Risk factors for atherosclerosis:
excess cholesterol in the blood
inadequate motor activity, inactivity
lack of oxygen in the blood, hypoxia
high blood pressure, hypertension
stress, significant mental and emotional stress
hereditary predisposition to cardiovascular diseases
Symptoms of cerebral artery atherosclerosis
This disease develops usually after 55-60years, but the first signs of it can appear even at the youngest age. Particularly attentive to the first symptoms should be women - the risk of getting sick is slightly higher than that of men.
Aching headaches, worse in the second half of the day and in stuffy rooms
distraction of attention and memory impairment
noise or ringing in the ears
Insomnia and frequent nightmares in dreams
excessive nervousness, irritability, anxiety, suspiciousness, suspiciousness
increased fatigue, decreased efficiency
slowness of movements
frequent choking with food
redness and sweating of the face
addiction to depression
Symptoms of arteriosclerosis of the vessels of the lower extremities
Atherosclerosis of the vessels of the lower extremitiesabout one in nine people over 65 years of age. However, men are ill with them almost 3 times more often than women and get sick much earlier. The first minor signs appear, as a rule, at a very young age. Smoking dramatically increases the risk of developing atherosclerosis of the vessels of the lower extremities and greatly burdens its course. The trigger mechanism of the disease is often trauma, frostbite and hypothermia of the legs.
pain of any intensity in the femoral and gastrocnemius muscles, arising during walking and subsiding when stopped
numbness of the feet
appearance on the legs of sites with reduced sensitivity
chill feet, a constant sensation in the legs of some cold
convulsions, especially at night
poor healing ulcers, sores and wounds on the legs
peeling and cracking skin on the legs
pains in the legs, worse in the prone position
hair loss on the legs
badly treatable fungus on toes
Features of the diet during the treatment of atherosclerosis
Diet is an important partnon-drug treatment of atherosclerosis. All the risk factors for the development of this disease work in a complex, so it is enough to remove at least one factor, and the treatment is immediately eased, and the possibility of severe complications becomes less. An anti-atherosclerotic diet is needed to reduce the amount of cholesterol in the blood, normalize weight and maintain a normal sugar level. The correct diet is one of the most important methods of folk treatment and prevention of atherosclerosis.
Completely exclude from the diet products,containing cholesterol, in no case it is impossible - it is a vital energy source for humans. Dangerous is not the excess of cholesterol in food, but the lack of fiber, which allows you to remove from the body all unnecessary.
Ration requirements for the treatment of atherosclerosis
The food should be varied and rational. If you need to reduce weight, the calorie content of food should be lowered. In the diet should be performed such rules:
Vegetable food should be about two thirds of the diet.
During each meal, you need to eat some of the raw fruits and vegetables in the form of a salad.
Refined products, including starch (purified rice, 1st grade flour, semolina, pasta from purified flour) should be excluded or at least limited.
Reduce the amount of protein coming from food can not.
Half of the protein food should be fish and seafood, the other half - the poultry and lean meat.
Animal fats should be replaced with vegetable oil.
The products containing the greatest amount of cholesterol should be limited or completely excluded (depending on the degree of development of the disease).
Preferably fractional meals - in small portions 5-6 times a day
You can eat:
It is necessary to limit:
It is necessary to exclude:
Vegetables and fruits, useful in its raw form:
Diet in the treatment of atherosclerosis should not betoo strict, especially if it is a question of an atherosclerosis of vessels of a brain. The peculiarity of this disease is excessive nervous tension. A large number of restrictions and a sharp change in the diet will only increase the number of experiences experienced and will result in more harm than good. Any diet should not go beyond common sense.
Folk remedies for the treatment of atherosclerosis
In the treatment of atherosclerosis folk remediesit must be borne in mind that it will not be possible to restore the arteries to the state of previous health, moreover, an attempt to do this can be dangerous - the detached cholesterol plaque is able to completely clog the vessel. The goal of the treatment is to stop the further development of the disease and avoid complications caused by the destruction of the sclerized vessel wall. Restoration of normal blood circulation is possible, but it will be carried out in a roundabout way, bypassing the affected vessel. Stimulate the development of such pathways (they are called collaterals) is a feasible task, which can be handled by well-known people's experience of treating atherosclerosis.
