What is Cardiac Disease?

Cardiac disease, also called heart disease, includes problems that affect the heart, the blood vessels and the arteries. Often, a build up of plaque on the walls of the arteries leads to a narrowing of the arteries and makes blood flow more difficult. This can eventually cause blood clots and blockages that may lead to a heart attack or a stroke. 

Cardiovascular disease can often be prevented or reversed utilizing medications and lifestyle changes to avoid permanent damage. Lifestyle changes may include diet, exercise, natural supplements, IV Therapy and medication.

What is High Cholesterol?

Cholesterol is a fat in the blood produced by your body. People with diets high in cholesterol accumulate too much cholesterol in their body which can build up in the arteries of the vessels. This is called atherosclerosis and can lead to problems with blood flow and cardiac disease. There are two types of cholesterol, LDL and HDL. LDL is the cholesterol that can harden your arteries and cause strokes and heart attacks. HDL is the cholesterol that can lower the chances of cardiovascular disease.
