Heart Disease Symptoms covers the causes, signs, symptoms and treatment, along with what you can do to prevent or fight these diseases. 

Heart Disease Symptoms

Causes Of Heart Diseases:

There are many types of heart or cardiac diseases.  Coronary Artery Disease, the most common, happens as the arteries around the heart get clogged by cholesterol build up over time.  Other kinds of heart diseases, like heart valve disease or rheumatic fever, are present at birth, and caused by genetic issues.

Signs And Symptoms Of Heart Diseases: 

Coronary artery disease symptoms include chest pain or tightness, pressure, aching, burning.  It's often mistaken for heartburn.  It can be felt in the chest, left shoulder, arms, back or neck.  If one of these pains continues for more than 5 minutes and includes shortness of breath, sweating, nausea, dizziness or weakness, anxiety or rapid heart beat, call 9-1-1 because it may be a heart attack.

Heart valve disease symptoms often come on rapidly but may develop more slowly.  They include shortness of breath, heart palpitations, swelling around waist, ankles, or feet, dizziness, rapid weight gain, and chest pressure.  

Treatment Of Heart Diseases:

Coronary artery disease used to be very difficult to treat because it involved the tiny arteries supplying blood to the heart muscle.  Now, there are a number of treatments available depending on how severe the condition is.  Treatment can range from diet, exercise and medication to laser surgery to "put  holes in your heart" to provide blood to the damaged muscle.

Heart valve problems can vary widely, with treatment ranging from none, to medicine, to surgery to repair the valve. 

What You Can Do To Prevent Or Fight Heart Diseases:

The best things you can do about most heart diseases include keeping your weight down, a balanced, low salt, low fat diet and lots of regular aerobic exercise.  Of course, if heart disease is an issue with you, make sure your doctor approves any changes in eating or exercise habits before you begin.

Complete Healing:

If you're looking to improve your health and fitness, you probably want a healthy life...including mind, body and spirit.  You can renew your mind and spirit with God's help.  He can heal the stuff your diet doesn't control.  If you want His help, go to Healing From God.
