Heart Failure What Is Heart Failure? Heart failure is caused by the heart failing to pump enough blood at the right pressure around the body. The heart muscle becomes too weak or stiff to work properly, and this means the heart needs more support to do its job. It doesn’t mean that the heart will stop working. * * * What Causes Heart Failure? There is no single cause, but if you have suffered with heart muscle weakness, high blood pressure, coronary heart disease, heart valve disease, atrial fibrillation, anemia, or an overactive thyroid gland, these are all probable causes. * * * Heart Failure #FAQ Q: What can you recommend for heart failure? I am 63 years old, suffered from heart failure recently and would like your advice please. A: You should follow the advice in the following Heart Failure Health Plan. My advice is to stick to the really healthy foods in the diet plan and to avoid starchy carbs, processed foods, and so on.. * * * #Testimonial “I have used Serrapeptase and Blockbuster AllClear for eight months. I had a heart attack last year. I was fit as a fiddle before my heart attack, and I’m just as fit now. I take six Serrapeptase tablets a day.

Does your face turn red when you drink? Do you experience severe hangovers from just one glass of wine? You may be alcohol intolerant, which increases your risk of cancer and cardiovascular disease. Find out your risk with our DNA Alcohol Intolerance Test (👉http://bit.ly/DNAalcohol or click link in bio @genovatedna). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you drink, you know that the buzz usually wears off. This is because our bodies breaks down the #alcohol. While there are many ways to clear alcohol a majority of it’s metabolized in a two-step process involving two enzymes, alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH) and aldehyde dehydrogenase (ALDH). . ADH converts ethanol to acetaldehyde. Acetaldehyde is then converted into acetate by ALDH. Acetate is similar to vinegar and is harmless, but acetaldehyde is toxic. The build-up of acetaldehyde (which is normally short-lived) is responsible for all of the symptoms associated with #alcoholintolerance including #alcoholflush, nausea, dizziness, headaches, increased heart rate, insomnia and severe #hangovers. . People with alcohol intolerance carry #DNA changes in genes that encode ADH and ALDH. The ALDH2 variant is the prime culprit behind the alcohol flush reaction, which makes people turn red or appear intoxicated after just a few drinks. . If a person who experiences alcohol flush continues to drink, they increase their risk of esophageal #cancer by 10-fold if they are a moderate drinker, or up to 90-fold for a heavy drinker. ‘Flushers’ who consume more than four drinks a week are also at high risk of #hypertension. This means the flush response actually is a signal for risks associated with drinking. . A simple #genetic test can provide you with the answer. But how you let this information influence your #socialdrinking is still entirely up to you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #DNAtest #dnatests #healthandwellbeing #healthjourney #dnatesting #healthandwellness #hearthealthmonth #healthyliving #car#cardiovascularth #cardiovascular #stroke #foodsensitivity #foodsensitivities #hometest #asianflush #womenshealth #drinkingbeer #drinkingwine #winenight #alcohollink

Hemochromatosis occurs when the body absorbs and stores too much iron. It’s the most common genetic disorder in the western world, with 1 in 9 people of European ancestry carrying one of the genetic mutations linked to the disease. Find out your risk with our DNA Hemochromatosis Test (👉http://bit.ly/DNAhemo or click link in bio @genovatedna). #hemochromatosisawarenssmonth ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Iron uptake need to be carefully regulated, because we are not able to eliminate extra #iron from our bodies. Enterocytes, the cells lining our small intestine, are responsible for taking in iron from our #diet. Once inside these cells there are two possible fates for iron: (1) it’s transported into our blood through ferroportin (a transporter on the surface of cells), or (2) is bound to ferritin an iron-binding protein within cells. . Transport of iron through ferroportin depends on two main signals, one of which involves hepcidin. When iron stores are full, the liver releases hepcidin. Hepcidin binds to ferroportin causing these transporters to be internalized, which stops iron uptake. . If there’s too much hepcidin, not enough iron being absorbed. This can lead to conditions like #anemia because of the lack of iron to make functional hemoglobin. #Hemochromatosis on the other hand is cause by absorbing too much. This iron can accumulate in our organs damaging them, essentially “rusting” them from the inside. . The leading cause of hereditary hemochromatosis is defective versions of a single gene, HFE. The HFE protein controls how much iron gets absorbed from food. Genetic experiments in mice show that HFE function is required to trigger normal levels of hepcidin secretion. . The good news is, if diagnosed early, hemochromatosis can be easily treated. A simple genetic test can tell you if you are at higher risk of hemochromatosis. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #DNAtest #dna#dnatests #hea#healthandwellbeing #healthjourney #dnatesting #healthandwellness #hearthealthmonth #viking #celtic #healthyliving #blo#blooddisorder #genetic #dna #nutrition #nutritional #heathjourney #healthandwellbeing #phlebotomy #phlebotomist #hometest #prevention #metabolism #fitlifechoices #european #blood

The heart is the hardest working muscle in our bodies. As such there are many fail-safe mechanisms in place to make sure that our hearts remain healthy. Did you know that some of us are more prone to heart disease than others? Find out your risk of cardiovascular disease with our Cardiovascular Disease (APOE) DNA Test (👉http://bit.ly/DNACVDapoe or click link in bio @genovateDNA). #str#strokeenssmonth ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Arteries, the blood vessels that carry blood away from our heart, are made up of three distinct layers. The inside is lined with a thin layer of endothelial cells. In a normal artery, the endothelium acts as a porous barrier that controls the transport of molecules into the artery wall. . Vascular smooth muscle cells make up a majority of the middle layer. These cells can contract and relax to optimize the delivery of blood. The outermost layer contains cells and proteins that give our blood vessels its structure. . The main cause of #car#cardiovascularase (CVD) is atherosclerosis, the build up of #plaque in blood vessels. It is often known as “a silent killer”, because the accumulation of plaque and the narrowing of the blood vessels is asymptomatic until later stages of #heartdisease. . Studies show that 40-60% of the risk of CVD is heritable, and this heritability can be explained by #genetics. Genetic involved in the storage, metabolism and transport of dietary fats such as cholesterol and triglycerides are linked to the risk of CVD. Other disease risk factors include high blood pressure, smoking, poor diet, physical inactivity, excess weight and age. . When detected early the risk of CVD can be mitigated with #dietary changes, increased #phy#physicalactivity, and medications to lower #cholesterol levels.

Heart Disease What Is Heart Disease? Heart disease in this section refers to a group of diseases that involve the heart or blood vessels local to the heart, including angina (cardiomyopathy), ischaemic or coronary heart disease, diseased heart valves, and heart failure. Cardiovascular disease refers to any disease that affects the cardiovascular system, principally cardiac disease, vascular diseases of the brain and kidney, and peripheral arterial disease. These are all covered in the Cardiovascular Plan. What Causes Heart Disease? Heart and cardiovascular diseases remain the biggest cause of death worldwide, though over the last two decades, cardiovascular mortality rates have declined in many high-income countries as healthier lifestyle choices are adopted. At the same time, cardiovascular deaths and disease have increased at an astonishing rate in low- and middle-income  countries as they take on the junk food and smoking habits  of the Western countries. Chronic inflammation (caused in the main by diet, missing nutrients in modern foods, stress, sugary drinks, and smoking) is  clearly the cause of such diseases. The correct form of exercise  can help in some cases but can make matters worse in others. Short, high-intensity exercise sets (e.g. 200 meter sprints) with recovery rests in between each set (also called interval training)  are shown in studies to be far healthier than long-distance  jogging exercise. Weight training is also recommended. Since up to 50% of all deaths between the ages of 45 and 70 are caused by heart/cardiovascular diseases, “thinking” people should start to think about their health plan so they can remain in the other 50%.
