@Abhishek_Anand Sorry to hear about your situation… I can identify fully with your dilemma (see my earlier post on Sep. 6) having had 2 “heart attacks” and not being happy with regular cardio care… as @siobhan points out in her article, the whole cholesterol myth makes the mainstream cardio care process into a bad joke that makes it very difficult to get meaningful and effective diagnosis and treatment for almost any health issue. I feel we (most Americans) are being misled, misinformed, and often outright lied to, about the whole subject of wellness, and especially heath health. For people like you and I, trying to sort out the facts isn’t just a nutritional debate, it is a serious matter of life and death, with very real consequences.
I’ve been experimenting with IF and keto for about 6 months, and can only say I feel much better, have more energy and my mind seems more clear, and I am experiencing much fewer cramps (which I believe was my actual cause of “heart attack” ) Just as a side note, I’ve asked all my cardi specialists about the likelihood of this being a nutrient based (magnesium) symptom, and they don’t want to even talk about it, even though it is a very real condition, as reported on the Mayo Clinic website: “A coronary artery spasm is a temporary tightening (constriction) of the muscles in the wall of one of the arteries that supplies blood flow to your heart muscle. … If the spasm lasts long enough, it can lead to chest pain (angina) and even a heart attack (myocardial infarction).” I now take massive doses of magnesium (2000 mg daily +10000 vit D as per my naturopath) and use visualization to release any tightening when I do feel some chest pain occasionally… I’ve had to come to this process through trial and error, and my own research since our “doctors” refuse to consider anything that wasn’t part of their college education.
Here is a saying I once read that shows how this works: “doctors can be sued for doing the ‘right thing’, but not for doing what all the other doctors are doing”!! In other words, if they recommend “alternative health care”, they can be held legally responsible, but if they stick with “accepted and proven medical practices”, they are untouchable (in court). Plus, most American’s prefer the “I can do as I please… my doctor has a pill or operation that will correct my problems later!!”
We must all continue to share our insights and personal experiments so as to improve our possibilities of living a more healthful and useful life in the future… good luck, and many blessings to you all!!
