Coronary heart disease is the leading cause of death in Australia. In fact ischemic heart disease has remained Australia’s leading cause of death over the past decade.
CORONARY HEART DISEASE
Coronary heart Disease (CHD) is where the heart arteries supplying the heart muscle become occluded by plaque buid-up (a condition known as atherosclerosis), whereby restricting fresh oxygenated blood.
This plaque over a period of time may rupture to where blood coagulates forming a thrombus (blood clot). This thrombus may continually coagulate to completely occlude the artery or dislodge, to form an embolus which travels further downstream occluding the artery.
In result the heart muscle deprived of fresh oxygenated blood dies leading to a Heart Attack (Myocardial Ischemia). Depending on the severity and location of the myocardial necrosis (death of heart muscle cells), the person may be at risk of Heart Failure.
Unfortunately in Western Medicine there is no intervention to detect early stages of atherosclerotic changes in the coronary arteries until it becomes an apparent problem, to where a coronary angiogram is then perform due to the cost and risks involved. This means people are walking around unaware of their risk to heart disease.
Alternate Therapeutics utilises pulse diagnosis to determine the condition of the Heart, before serious health conditions arise.
Alternate Therapeutics has herbal remedies which help prevent thrombosis or embolism, by reducing Low Density Lipoproteins (LDL), triglycerides, cholesterol, reducing vascular resistance, reducing blood pressure and anticoagulants.
