Can You Prevent Heart Disease and Heart Attacks?

Can You Prevent Heart Disease and Heart Attacks?


Hi, this is Dr Tim Smith from New Life Chiropractic,
your Max Living doctor. Today I want to talk about the number one
cause of death in America, which is heart disease. One in four deaths is related to heart disease. Over 600,000 people every single year. The cost for this annually is in the hundreds
of billions of dollars. And this is over 95 percent a preventable
lifestyle related disease, especially when it comes to a heart attack. Typically the first symptom of heart disease
is a heart attack. And nearly 50 percent of the time that first
symptom is the cause of death for that person. Because people are so stuck in judging their
health by how they look or how they feel or getting a test from their doctor. They’re more worried about what their blood
pressure is or cholesterol or these other numbers and really have very little to do
with your overall health and nobody, almost no doctor is actually looking at the true
cause of heart attack, which is subluxation. A heart attack is a sympathetic event in your
nervous system. It’s like a short in the electrical system,
causing your heart to go out. That’s a heart attack. Let me show you exactly how that works and
how chiropractic can help change that. So when you’re under stress, when you have
traumas from emotions, toxins, and physical traumas, what that causes is misalignments
in your spine, a condition called subluxation that interferes with your nerves. So if you look right in here, this is your
brain. Your brain sends messages down your spinal
cord and out the nerves. Now, the spinal cord is connected to a few
different areas. It’s most importantly connected to what’s
called your sympathetic chain ganglion, which goes into all organs and affects the sympathetic
nervous system. So when you’re in a stressful state, sympathetic
state, everything’s working overtime. Your blood pressure goes up, your heart rate
goes up, your heart has to work harder. Your muscles have to work harder. Your digestive system shuts down. Your immune system shuts down. The cognitive portion of your brain start
shutting down. Imagine if you’re in that state all the time
and your blood pressure is high. No drug fixes that. Your heart’s beating too fast. No drug fixes that. Your heart is not repairing and regenerating
like it should. No drug fixes that. The way we’re able to correct and change that
is by removing that interference, creating what’s called a parasympathetic state where
everything relaxes, calms down and heals. There was a study done a few years back on
chiropractic and blood pressure alone, where one adjustment was more effective in reducing
blood pressure than the top two medications. That’s because it’s affecting this system. So if you’re having heart problems, high blood
pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, you’ve had a heart attack. You’ve had other issues. First place you want to go to your chiropractor. We specialize in corrective care here in our
