The Most Powerful Heart Disease Diet

Heart disease diet is an integral component to reversing heart disease. However, there are some important steps to a heart disease diet. What should you eat in a heart disease diet? Who should you listen to for a heart disease diet? Why should you focus on a heart disease diet?

Firstly I am not a big fan of the word diet, let alone, heart disease diet; it should be a way of eating, but for this article I will talk about the heart disease diet.  Heart disease diet has been talked about quite a bit and unfortunately the Heart and Stroke Foundation and the American Heart Association are fundraising organizations that raise money by selling its name to food producers. Pick up a box of a sugar laden product and you may see a stamp of approval from these organizations. Heart disease diet focusing on approved labels from organizations that stay alive with selling its “trusted” name may be misleading. Commercials talking about the benefits of margarine or food products to our heart health may be misleading in a heart disease diet.

The fact that a heart disease diet focusing on foods that are approved for sugar laden products will just lead you back into the cause of heart disease and probably back in the emergency room. So let’s look at the root of the problem and you can make your judgment here. Wheat, corn, potatoes, and sugar have more to do with heart disease than bacon and eggs. Focusing on low fat heart disease diet promoted by most government funded dietitians and heart associations are responsible for keeping them in business because it results in high sugar.

Heart disease diet and Cholesterol

Heart Disease Diet
So most of us think that cholesterol is the cause of heart attacks and strokes, yet cholesterol is found in almost every cell in our body. So should your heart disease diet focus on lower cholesterol? The issue I have with this is that over 50% of heart attacks occur with people with normal cholesterol profiles. I am not saying it is important to lower cholesterol, however to lower cholesterol through a conventional low fat low cholesterol  heart disease diet may not be your answer.

Let me explain. Heart disease is an inflammatory disease.  When you have an inflammatory response, cholesterol floating around your blood stream goes to repair this inflammatory response.

So what causes this inflammatory response?

Toxins in our body cause this inflammatory response this also includes fungus, toxins and mycotoxins (any toxic substance produced by a fungus).  When you have increased toxins in your body your liver will produce more cholesterol to go to battle. Get rid of the toxins and mycotoxins and you will not require the excess cholesterol.

What feeds this fungus and toxins is sugar! Fungus is a parasite that craves carbohydrates such as potatoes, pasta and bread.

Your Heart Disease Diet

So your heart disease diet should be foods that do not contain mycotoxins readily (such as corn, peanuts and wheat). If we get very technical foods that contain animal foods may contain mycotoxins because the animal was feeding on mycotoxins. Mycotoxins are in a lot of our foods and a heart disease diet. What should your heart disease diet contain?  Vegetables and fiber are great because it attaches itself to mycotoxins and of course flushes it out of the body.

People ask us all the time; what is the best heart disease diet?

Everyone is unique and everyone does not have the same shape and size. There is not one size fits all, that is why there is a constant battle as to which diet is better. You will hear success stories all over as to which diet is best. However, if you are trying to truly reverse heart disease then:
