Atherosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries, is the thickening and hardening of the arteries from the build up of fatty substances and the by-products of your body's struggle to protect it from these substances.
The build up of plaque in the arteries slowly diminishes the supply of nutrients and oxygen to your heart, eventually blocking the coronary arteries around the heart, and leading to a heart attack. Coronary heart disease kills approximately half of all Americans.
Almost all risk factors for heart disease contribute to hardening of the arteries. Conventional medicine commonly uses drugs to try to reduce these causes. Unfortunately these drugs often have health damaging side effects. Surgery is also used, but this does not cure the disease, can cause serious side effects or death, and the condition often returns or shows up elsewhere in the body.
As Part I of this article explained, for effective heart health, the Total Heart Health Program restores balance in mind, body and environment, through re-establishing their connection with the inner intelligence of nature. This may include any or all of the following programs:
Mind: Transcendental Meditation. This is an important part of the Maharishi Vedic Approach to Health. Extensive research throughout the world has proven its superiority in increasing health and well being in all areas of life, including society. Research studies show outstanding and unprecedented reversals in heart disease and its risk factors.
Body: After determining your specific mind-body imbalance, THH prescribes diet, herbal supplements, exercise programs, and daily and seasonal routines helpful for your mind-body imbalance.
Environment: THH includes an analysis of the buildings where you live and work, and how to make them more natural and supportive of your health. It suggests remedial and preventative measures working with natural cycles and rhythms. The use of sound therapy is advised for advanced or chronic imbalance.
