Now let’s go from words to actions, to concrete problem solving!
Problem: I feel stuffy with breathing and getting oxygen and I am tired.
However, the oxygen saturation is 94-99%, I was able to measure it with my smartphone health program. I have a stent inserted 3.5 years ago, with a balloon dilatation into the coronary artery when there was a total blockage. When there was an intolerable radiant feeling in the chest near the heart, not so sore. Drinking water did not help, there was no heartburn. I jumped and banged my chest. It began already vomiting. I called in health counseling and told me about it, they asked me to call an ambulance from 112 number. By nightfall, doctors and nurses were ready. I was taken an angiography of the blood vessels of the heart. The doctor placed through an arm blood vessel and observing, the balloon dilation, and inserted the stent and cleaned the site. After that I immediately felt relieved. I had to eat for a year a strong anti-coagulant drug that kept the stent open and settled, and other medications. The reason for my cardiac infarction is due to genetic factors (there are others in the family), moving from a lot of ancestral sports activities from country to city to office work, not getting the same amount of exercise, even though I did it somewhat at leisure. The stress and dietary factors of adolescence may also have contributed, I have not eaten optimally healthy.
Now after 3.5 years I am using statin medication too, to lower harmful cholesterol, and a medicine containing acetylsalicylic acid to prevent thrombosis. I have tried to give up the drug to reduce cholesterol, but I have not been able to leave it out. My blood pressure is good and my heart rate steady. When the blood vessels become narrower, the likelihood of clots and blockages increases. My fat and cholesterol levels are good. I use omega3 fats and fish oil daily and a multivitamin and trace elements supplement. The stress test results were also good. I eat raw onion pieces throughout the day, it prevents cough and flu that hasn’t been for a year. There has been no fever since the 1975 military service, where perhaps I did not get enough vitamin C from food and the infection from other conscripts was great. In addition, I eat a lot of fresh berries, fruits, vegetables, green salad, cabbage, whole grains and a variety of fiber, nuts, seeds sometimes and sometimes pea soup. I eat fish, eggs, light and red meat sometimes to get iron and essential amino acids. I get lactic acid bacteria from milk and natural yoghurt. I avoid being too fat, salty and sugar, but ripe berries and fruits provide me with essential sugars eg. cell recognition molecules. I try to limit overeating and excess energy, which is stored as fat in the body. I do not smoke and do not use drugs and alcohol except sometimes with a little domestic beer and mead. In my diet, I pay attention to foods that are more effective in removing harmful compounds from the body, and sweating and adequate fluid intake also remove them. I put on clothes warmly if I go jogging and walking, I exercise every day for about 30-45 minutes. about 3 km and sometimes a couple of hours 5-10 km. I wash my hands with soap before eating.
What else can I do to improve my health? Enhanced nutrition and phytotherapy. Increase oxygen exercise. I sleep and rest well and adequately.
Stimulation of vascular neoplasm: During human movement, coronary artery blood flow is greatly enhanced. The inner surface of the arteries responds to this stress in the same way as to the stress caused by arteriosclerosis, that is, by stimulating the small lateral blood vessels to elongate, expand and make new connections. That means more exercise.
Ginger has the experience of dilating blood vessels, removing mucus, reducing lung congestion, lowering cholesterol, reducing inflammation (hardening of the arteries is a kind of inflammatory reaction) and much more. Let’s take a look at the ginger information I made with NutrOpt3.
Here is an accumulation of experience gained over thousands of years, as well as research into the health effects of ginger, both as such and processed into natural medicines. More can be seen as you scroll through the sidebar. Herbs have versatile effects.
Ensure adverse reactions from other sources: Overdose may cause stomach upset and somnolence. Follow the dosage instructions of the manufacturer and the phytotherapy books. It may not be used as a herbal medicine during pregnancy and breastfeeding, but the use of spices is possible. Not for people with gallstones. Do not use concomitantly with antihypertensive agents. Your doctor has confirmed that you can use it with a medicine containing acetylsalicylic acid.
From a book Medicaments from nature Dosage instructions: Powder 0.5-1.5 g daily mixed with water or food. I use fresh ginger root. I weigh it about 5g, it’s about two pieces of sugar. I sliced it into my potato soup and ate the pieces with the potato soup. Nowadays I eat raw ginger pieces. What Affected: The mucus began to come off the lungs, coughing it out. It feels easier now, doesn’t feel stuffy. Ginger also lowers cholesterol and dilates blood vessels. I either adjust or decrease the dosage and try it for a longer period of time. One downside ginger has, too much it can cause arrhythmias!
I sometimes go for a longer 10 km Nordic walking tour, it also reduces clogging and refreshes.
