Your Heart & Your Nerve System

We all know how essential it is to take care of our spine and our nervous system. How does it all link in with your heart health?

Heart Health

Several studies have shown that people with heart disease have a decrease of up to one-third of their parasympathetic nerve activity!

Heart and health problems affect all of the cardiovascular system (this is a transport system) and the entire body. All of your muscles and organs are affected following changes in your heart health.

Scientific observation shows that heart disease is directly linked to deficiencies in the nerve system and mal-adaptive postures. Take note! It is critical to take care of yourself, so that vital communications can take place easily. How? By nurturing and protecting your spine, getting regular Spinal care, and staying on top of your re-evaluations.

A happy spine, heart, and nervous system create a happier and healthier YOU!

Stay away from Polyunsaturated Fatty Acid’s (PUFA’s)

What are PUFA’s?

PUFA’s are fatty acids with many double bonds and polyunsaturated fatty acids also lack several hydrogen atoms. This makes them unstable, unlike fully saturated fatty acids that are stable. This unstable state allows molecules to behave in a way that is susceptible to being damaged by free-radicals. Free-radical damage is known to cause: accelerated aging, hormone imbalance, cancer, and immune disorders.

Where will you find PUFA’s

When out shopping, you will discover PUFA’s in a great many places. Most manufactured foodstuff has them. Therefore, it’s best only to buy whole foods and prepare everything at home.

Here’s a short but not definitive list of PUFA’s

Soybean oil, corn oil, safflower oil, grapeseed oil, sesame seed, nut oils (peanut, walnut, almond, etc.), flaxseed, fish oil, cod liver oil, evening primrose, borage oils, Omega-3 and Omega-6 (also known as the “essential fatty acids”)

What are the good alternative fats that we can eat? Saturated fats: Coconut oil, butter, ghee, coconut milk.

When you make these simple and conscientious changes, not only will your heart love you, so will your gut and nerve system.
