What's the key to a stronger heart, a sharper brain AND a much better sex life? If you answered cholesterol and cardiovascular health, you're right! March is National Nutrition Month and in Part 1 of this two part series we're talking about everything cholesterol and beyond: why you need it, where you get it, what happens when you have too much (or too little) of it and why it should be the number one focus for optimizing your whole body health this year.
But that's not it.
In Part 2 we're taking it a step further to unpack all of the numbers in a cholesterol lab report and give you FOUR MORE FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE BIOMARKERS that you can test to take massive action and reduce your risk of heart attack, stroke, poor circulation, erectile dysfunction, diabetes, dementia and brain-flammation.
1. Is cardiovascular disease just another name for heart disease?
Answer: No. Cardiovascular disease refers to a group of conditions that includes: coronary artery disease (which refers to disease in the arteries inside your heart), hypertension or high blood pressure (the arteries that lead into and out of your heart), cerebrovascular disease (or stroke the arteries and veins that lead into your brain), heart failure, cardiomyopathies and peripheral vascular disease (all of those veins and arteries in your arms and legs. All of those conditions together comprise cardiovascular disease. And what all of these conditions have in common, as a precursor, is inflammation; a chronic inflammatory condition called atherosclerosis. And that’s what your cholesterol panel that your nurse practitioner or healthcare provider is looking for.
Other questions covered:
2. What is atherosclerosis?
3. Why is the endothelium so important?
4. What causes atherosclerosis?
5. What are the risk factors for developing atherosclerosis?
