In a disease-specific sense, the top cause of death in the United States is heart disease or heart attack, which is responsible for nearly 600,000 deaths (that’s one out of four) a year. But that sounds pretty vague, doesn’t it?

 

What exactly is heart disease? And, more importantly, what can you do to avoid becoming its next victim?

 

The American Heart Association (AHA) defines heart disease as such:

 

“Heart and blood vessel disease – cardiovascular disease also called heart disease – includes numerous problems, many of which are related to a process called atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis is a condition that develops when a substance called plaque builds up in the walls of the arteries. This buildup narrows the arteries, making it harder for blood to flow through. If a blood clot forms, it can stop the blood flow. This can cause a heart attack or stroke.”

 

Yet this description again makes heart disease sound so very abstract … and like something that simply happens to you. If you dig a little bit deeper, though, you’ll find that the top cause of death could easily be described not as heart disease but as ignorance; specifically, ignorance about what underlies many, if not most, chronic diseases, including heart disease.

 

In a word, inflammation!

 

The Link Between Inflammation and Heart Disease

 

It’s widely known that elevated levels of C-reactive protein (CRP), a marker of inflammation in your body, are associated with an increased risk of heart disease. Dr. Andrew Weil wrote:

 

“The link between elevated CRP levels and heart disease has been demonstrated repeatedly, and there is some evidence that CRP may be a more important indicator of heart disease risk than high LDL (“bad”) cholesterol.

 

In an eight-year study involving 27,939 women led by Paul Ridker, MD, director of the Center for Cardiovascular Disease Prevention at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, more than half of the women who eventually developed heart disease had high CRP levels even though their LDL levels were not considered high. Dr. Ridker has estimated that the same may be true for 25 percent of the U.S. population.”

 

Even AHA acknowledges that inflammation is common in heart disease and stroke patients, and suggests it may be promote the formation of fatty plaques in the arteries:

 

“Think about a splinter in your finger or an abscess on a tooth,” said Donna Arnett, Ph.D., chair and professor of epidemiology at the School of Public Health at the University of Alabama at Birmingham and president of the American Heart Association. “Our body launches an attack with our white blood cells and chemicals that results in redness and swelling to kill the bacteria or rid the body of the intruder.”

 

Similarly, for the cardiovascular system, risk factors like cigarette smoking, high blood pressure and LDL (bad) cholesterol can “injure” the heart [leading to inflammation]. In turn, atherosclerosis, the buildup of fatty deposits in the inner walls of arteries, can develop. This narrows the arteries and increases the risk they’ll become blocked.

 

Common Symptoms of Chronic Inflammation — ‘The Silent Killer’

 

Chronic inflammation is sometimes referred to as the ‘silent killer’ because it often causes no symptoms at all, yet simmers silently until suddenly you’re diagnosed with a chronic disease. There are some symptoms to watch out for, though, which are often confused with other conditions. If you have some or a combination of the following, you could have unchecked inflammation in your body:

 

  • Body aches and pains
  • Congestion
  • Frequent infections
  • Diarrhea
  • Dry eyes
  • Indigestion
  • Shortness of breath
  • Skin outbreaks
  • Swelling
  • Stiffness
  • Weight gain or obesity

 

How to Prevent Heart Attack?

 

While medications and surgery are the standard heart disease treatments, there’s a lot you can do to prevent this disease in the first place, and many of the best strategies are related to your lifestyle choices.

 

  1. Eat Nuts

 

Eating nuts daily may lower and prevent heart disease by 29 percent, thanks to the healthy fats, minerals, and inflammation-fighting compounds they contain.

 

  1. Get Enough Sleep

 

Men who have trouble falling asleep also have a 55 percent higher risk of heart disease than those who do not. Why the connection? The study’s researcher explained:

 

“Poor sleep has influence on endocrine function, it can increase chronic inflammation and also it can change circadian patterns.”

 

  1. Minimize Stress

 

Chronic stress is also pro-inflammatory predicts the occurrence of coronary heart disease. Those experiencing work-related stress, loneliness or social isolation have an increased risk of having a coronary event, such as a heart attack, and acute episodes of stress also pose risks to your heart.

 

  1. Eat Sardines or Take High-Quality Fish Oil

 

The omega-3s in low-mercury fish like sardines or wild-caught salmon are invaluable for heart health, as they lower inflammation and the risk of chronic diseases like heart disease.

 

  1. Exercise

 

It’s no secret that exercise is good for your heart, both by helping with weight loss and via direct effects on the heart. Research even shows that exercise works as well as drugs in the secondary prevention of heart disease.

  1. Eat More Vegetables

 

A veggie-rich diet (think kale, broccoli, bell peppers, cabbage, etc.) is at the heart of the Mediterranean style of eating, which emphasizes fresh produce, olive oil, nuts, beans, fish and even wine. Eating this way (as opposed to the veggie-poor, overly processed Standard American Diet) could prevent about 30 percent of heart attacks, strokes and deaths from heart disease.

 

  1. Fight Chronic Inflammation

 

 

Part of the allure of many of the strategies above is that they reduce inflammation in your body and prevent heart disease. Chronic inflammation is common in heart disease and stroke patients, and it may promote the formation of fatty plaques in the arteries, raising your risk of heart disease (and other chronic diseases) considerably.

 

Chronic inflammation is often the result of many years of poor diet, inactivity, excess alcohol, cigarette smoking, excessive stress and other unhealthy lifestyle choices. The key word here is ‘choices.’ You can make a decision, starting today, to drastically lower the inflammation in your own body — and you don’t need anti-inflammatory drugs to do it.

 

A comprehensive anti-inflammatory diet, consisting of inflammation-fighting food, drinks and herbal supplements — is an invaluable tool to help keep inflammation, and thereby heart disease, at bay.
