No More Heart Attacks - Windward


No More Heart Attacks

We can virtually eliminate heart attacks as the #1 killer in America. Learn more about how clogged arteries develop and how to stop and even reverse arterial clogging. Find out which diets can lower your risk of heart disease. Learn which fats constrict arteries and increase the risk of a fatal clot. See how excess saturated fats increase arterial clogging and heart attacks. Oxidized cholesterol becomes a hazard to arterial health when foods high in cholesterol are cooked. See studies showing how nuts and seeds can open arteries, lower adhesion, and reduce clotting. We will review the latest research so that you can choose heart-safe lifestyle options including fitness and stress reduction.
