Cardiovascular Support System
Are you finding it more difficult to walk, breathe, and walk up a flight of stairs? Are you noticing any swelling around your ankles or in your face? Could it be that you are just out of shape or is it something more? As you have gotten older, have your doctor visits and annual blood tests resulted in more discussions involving your heart? You’re here because you are concerned about the health of your heart. Maybe you are seeing your cholesterol or blood pressure rise. Perhaps you were told you have heart disease. Or, heart disease runs in your family and you want to ensure you don’t fall prey to the disease like others in your family have. You’re not alone! Heart disease is common. In fact, about 600,000 people die of heart disease in the United States every year – that’s 1 in every 4 deaths.
High blood pressure, high LDL cholesterol, and smoking are key risk factors for heart disease. About half of Americans (49%) have at least one of these three risk factors. Other medical conditions that may contribute to a higher risk of heart disease, include diabetes, overweight and obesity, and excessive alcohol use.
Modern research has now corroborated what the Hallelujah Diet has been telling people for over 20 years — that a change in diet and lifestyle can significantly improve and in many cases reverse heart disease.
Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr., M.D., internationally known heart surgeon, researcher and clinician at the Cleveland Clinic conducted studies on his patients. Dr. Esselstyn found that after 5 years on a plant-based diet, the average total cholesterol levels of his research group dropped from 246 milligrams per deciliter to 177 mg/dL. The 19 patients in the study had 49 cardiac events in the years leading up to the study, and had undergone aggressive treatment procedures. Several had multiple bypass operations. After changing their eating plan, there were no more cardiac events in the group within a 12-year period.
The Hallelujah Diet has been used by people around the world for over 20 years as they endeavored to restore their health. Instead of looking at the symptom, it focuses on the root cause of the problem providing the most efficient and effective way to support the body’s self-healing ability. It was designed to address nutritional deficiency and detoxify the body simultaneously.
We call it the Miraculous Self-Healing Body because we know that when we start putting the right foods into the body and stop consuming the foods that are causing the problem that the body will respond positively with healing. Just like if you cut your finger, it will heal; our inside cuts, like heart disease, will heal if we stop cutting the inside by consuming the wrong kinds of foods.
To improve effectiveness, a dietary change is necessary. The American Heart Association has recently created a Lifestyle Intervention Table that has many of the factors that Hallelujah Diet has been teaching for over 20 years. By incorporating a plant-based, primarily raw food diet you will strengthen your immune system, increase your energy, and help support your body in maintaining cardiovascular health.
As you begin to follow the Hallelujah Diet, your daily food intake should include plenty of leafy greens, fresh vegetable juices, raw vegetables, and minimal fruits (although nutritious, fruits should be limited to 15% of your total dietary intake). Fats and sugars should be minimal and meats and dairy should be eliminated. The optimal goal to supercharge your efforts is an 85% raw, 15% cooked, plant-based diet fortified with pure water, fresh air, exercise, rest, and stress management.
Whether managing your cardiovascular health through conventional or alternative means the Hallelujah Diet together with the Hallelujah Diet Cardiovascular Support System provides your body with the resources necessary to rebuild and restore. Disease didn’t happen overnight and it may take several months to one year to realize the desired results.
