A New Imaging Method Can Allow Early Warding Off Of Heart Problems

Posted |

A new heart imaging method developed in England can detect tiny clusters of inflamed fat cells, long before they can cause greater inflammation and the formation of arterial-wall plaque that can block coronary arteries.

Imaging methods currently in widespread use all too frequently don’t reveal coronary artery blocking until it’s too late to treat it with just statin drugs, and after open-heart surgery has thus become necessary to graft in new blood vessels and/or to insert possibly needed stents. Also, sometimes a heart attack or a stroke even occurs without there having been any prior warning or anticipation of it. Heart attacks are a major health problem in North America; it’s been found that about 750,000 Americans have a heart attack every year.

The new imaging procedure is claimed to reveal lesions early that put patients at potentially great risk. Inflamed fat cells that are morphing into

atherosclerotic plaques within coronary arteries, can readily rupture and cause heart attacks. The inflammation is dangerous in and of itself, not just the plaques — in fact, it’s perhaps even more dangerous. The new coronary-artery imaging method can show up inflammation very early, so that effective treatment with statin drugs can get started in a timely manner.

Current medical practice is to perform many different tests — for cholesterol, for blood pressure and heart pulse rate, for the health of the electrical signals governing heart operation, and for coronary-artery blockage using conventional imaging methods. Unfortunately, none of these methods reveals incipient blockages early enough to justify beginning effective conservative treatment with statin medicines; and so, when they reveal a problem, open-heart surgery to graft in a blood vessel or to insert a stent has become the only really-viable choice. The new method, once it has become fully tested and widely adopted, can allow warding off heart disease in many cases, rather than just repairing it after it has already happened.

The research study about this mew imaging method examined 450 people undergoing coronary-artery-bypass surgery, and compared them with 270 people being tested for possibly needing the surgery. The researchers figured out a way to use Computerized Tomography (CT) to determine which layers of fat were inflamed and unstable, by examining the size and shape of the fat cells. The results of the research were so encouraging that a much-larger-scale research project is planned, to further validate the new imaging method.

If your blood-pressure level is sometimes higher than you think that it really should be, you could look into taking CLE Holistic Health Alistrol to benefit your blood pressure, and maybe also CLE Holistic Health Naavudi to help you stay slimmer. Alistrol and Naavudi are vegetarian herbal health supplements, not drugs. Both are blended from various herbal extracts that have been used by traditional healers for millennia in Indian Ayurvedic, Chinese, Japanese, and Pacific Islander medical practice; Alistrol operates to alleviate high blood pressure, and Naavudi helps to mitigate excessive blood glucose (“blood sugar”). The extracts from four different herbs go into CLE Alistrol; CLE Naavudi is comprised of extracts from nine different herbs. Medical researchers are now clinically testing several of these ancient herbs, and some positive results have been reported. Both Alistrol and Naavudi are offered as vegetarian capsules, 500-milligram and 550-milligram respectively, produced from herbs that have been grown organically on CLE’s own farmland plots; and, that have been harvested and processed and packaged entirely by CLE employees, using CLE’s proprietary methods, in order to achieve superior levels of quality, purity, and uniformity. Neither Alistrol nor Naavudi is known to have any interaction with prescription medicines, so you can try one or both of them without otherwise changing your medicinal regimen. So, how about checking out Alistrol and/or Naavudi?
