In this video, Dr. Berg talks about the best diet for heart disease and the several causes of heart attack.
Causes of Heart Attack:
1. Clogged Coronary Artery – It abstracts the blood flow to the heart muscle.
There is always some type of damage or inflammation beforehand happening in the wall of the coronary artery – then the body starts accumulating cholesterol, protein and calcium as a Band-Aid which causes to start developing plaques, clot and if it became big enough, it can either dislodge or stop the flow of the artery which couldn’t supply oxygen to the muscle tissue.
The cause of inflammation is high levels of insulin and low nutrients.
2. Arrhythmia – problem with the pacemaker, the rhythm of the heart is off and blood can pull in different parts of the heart which could develop a clot and the clot could spread and clog an artery.
Potassium and magnesium are the nutrients that control the rhythm of the heart.
Healthy ketogenic diet is recommended to support a healthy heart.
