What is Heart Disease?

When our heart, the center of our body universe, is interrupted in its process of pumping blood around the body, carrying oxygen, and other nutrients to the areas that need it, it can result in fatal consequences. The risk of heart disease is greater for people with poor diet, who smoke and do not exercise, and men are more likely to suffer from it than women.

Types of Heart Diseases

The major types of heart disease are atherosclerosis, coronary, rheumatic, congenital, myocarditis, angina, and arrhythmia. Heart disease can arise from congenital defects, infection, narrowing of the coronary arteries, high blood pressure, or disturbances.

Stages of Heart Disease

The first stages of heart disease are lesions and cracks that form in the walls of blood vessel. These normally occur at the points of highest pressure or stress (near the heart). The second stage is the body trying to repair itself by depositing fatty substances inside the blood vessels to fill the cracks. Vitamin C can help keep the blood vessel walls from cracking and requiring constant repair. However, without the nutrient Vitamin C, these fatty substances can begin to build up and clog the blood vessels causing stroke and heart attack.

Random Useful Tip:
Epinephrine shot
If you are known to have a severe anaphylactic reaction, carry an epinephrine (adrenaline) shot with you at all times. Pay attention to expiration date and replace it regularly: upon expiration, it loses its effectiveness.

Random Drug Info:
Acyclovir
Acyclovir is a medication that is used to treat herpes infections of the skin, lips and genitals, chicken pox and shingles. It comes in the form of ointments, tablets, capsules or liquids. It relieves pain and itchiness and promotes healing; however, it does not cure the condition. Possible (but not common) side effects include headaches, upset stomach, vomiting and diarrhea. Severe side effects, such as severe rash or itching, blood in the urine, stomach pain or fever are even less common, but require prompt medical attention.
