By neutralizing these free radical thugs, antioxidants help block the appearance and progression of all such diseases.

In vivo studies are done using bacteria, yeast, and human cell lines.

The results of these studies clearly indicate that diet and lifestyle are not only protective against heart disease, but also can dramatically reverse the blockage of clogged arteries. The most famous of the three studies that showed this effect is the Lifestyle Heart Trial conducted by Dr. Dean Ornish.60 In this study, subjects with heart disease were divided into a control group and an experimental group. The control group received regular medical care, while the experimental group was asked to eat a lowfat vegetarian diet for at least one year.

The ability of diet to protect against atherosclerosis is well accepted, but evidence is accumulating that diet and lifestyle can also dramatically reverse the blockage of clogged arteries. The dietary guidelines provided in the chapter A Health-Promoting Diet are similar to those found to reverse atherosclerosis in the now-famous Lifestyle Heart Trial conducted by Dr. Dean Ornish.4 If additional support for lowering cholesterol levels is required, please see the chapter Cholesterol.

Frequently, what's behind this clogged-up situation is a buildup of cholesterol and fatty deposits inside artery walls. For other men, there are other possible causes. For those in their teens, twenties, and thirties, stress, depression, anger, fatigue, and performance anxiety are the most common triggers. Among the medical problems associated with erectile dysfunction are diabetes, thyroid problems, stroke, heart disease, and multiple sclerosis.

Keeping insulin and blood sugar levels normal is important because high levels of either—or both—can cause circulation problems that may lead to clogged arteries. In studies, supplemental chromium has helped people with glucose intolerance, or insulin resistance, an early sign of diabetes for many people. A study conducted by Dr. Anderson in China showed that chromium supplements can reduce blood sugar and insulin levels in people with fullblown type 2 diabetes. People with diabetes have a high risk of developing heart disease, but chromium may help reduce that risk as well, says Dr.

A STRANGE TYPE OF CHOLESTEROL If you have high levels of an odd type of cholesterol known as Lp(a)—pronounced "el pee little a"—you may be vulnerable to clogged arteries and heart attack at an early age, especially if your LDL cholesterol is also high. Some experts blame too much Lp(a) for a quarter of all heart attacks in people under age sixty. Ten to 25 percent of all Americans may have dangerously high Lp(a), which is genetically induced, they say. A traditional low-fat diet does not curb Lp(a). But there is hope: fish oil. Dr.

Triglycerides contribute to clogged arteries. Finally, we've learned more about the differing natures of fats and carbs when it comes to putting on weight. Ounce for ounce, fats have more calories than carbs. We've always known this, but we've misunderstood the significance. We took it to mean that carbs are less fattening. In reality, the opposite may be true. When we eat fats, we become satiated. As a result, we know when to stop eating. Refined carbs cause rapid changes in blood sugar levels, stimulate further hunger, thereby encouraging overeating and obesity.

He said that consuming raw foods was a way of eating which restored the diseased body and mind's ability to heal itself. Dr. Gerson recognized raw foods as a way to rebuild the vital regenerative force of the total organism. In 1928, he was even able to cure Albert Schweitzer's wife of tuberculosis with this diet.

If this seems far-fetched, consider all the people who have repeated triple by-pass surgeries for clogged arteries without eliminating the proven cause of the problem, which they could do by adopting a diet that does not clog the arteries. To make the shift into harmony is a matter of making conscious lifestyle changes. To do this, and to depart from the disease-generating practices of our culture, is considered heretical and seditious to our current fast-food lifestyle.

Scientists have found that people with heart disease, strokes, or clogged arteries in their legs are much more likely to have high levels of homocysteine in their blood. Luckily, it's easy to fight homocysteine with the right foods. Folate and other B-vitamins break down homocysteine in your body. That's why people with high levels of folate usually have low levels of homocysteine. To boost your folate level, eat lots of green leafy vegetables, beans, citrus fruits, and fortified cereals and breads. Omega-3. If you want to keep your heart healthy, eat fish more often.

Too much cholesterol can lead to clogged arteries, high blood pressure, stroke, and heart attack. What's more, quinoa is a good source of folate, the B-vitamin that keeps the dangerous substance homocysteine under wraps. And add potassium and magnesium, which help keep your blood pressure under control and reduce your risk of stroke, and quinoa seems well-armed. There's even evidence that suggests protein — often linked to an increased risk of heart problems — may actually slightly lessen your chance for heart disease.

Heart attacks: Cuts the odds of subsequent heart attacks by one-third. • Clogged arteries: Keeps arteries open and clear. (Eaters of fatty fish have less atherosclerosis.) Reduces risk of reclosure of arteries after angioplasty surgery by 40 to 50 percent. • High blood pressure: Eliminates or reduces the need for pharmaceutical pressure-lowering medications. • Ulcerative colitis (inflammatory bowel disease): In one test, eating 4.5 grams of fish oil a day—equal to that in seven ounces of mackerel—for eight months depressed disease activity by 56 percent.

And the most seriously clogged arteries belonged to those with the least omega-3 fat in their tissue, indicating they had made the mistake of skimping on fatty fish. Eating an ounce of fish a day, or a couple of servings a week, slashes your chances of heart attack by one-third to one-half, studies show. Thumbs Up: WHAT TO EAT TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK If you have a heart attack, there's no question about what to do: make a preemptive strike. Get on a high-fish diet immediately.

Other Pritikin advocates have diabetes that they're struggling to control, and many are dangerously obese.

"Every cardiologist and internist has had intermittent claudication patients who have been scheduled for amputation. Well, I have seen many such patients who were going to have their lower limbs removed and who were saved from this procedure by chelation therapy." To control the painful symptoms of intermittent claudication, you may also want to try acupuncture.

The more HDL you have, therefore, the more protection you have against clogged arteries. Blood cholesterol tests will usually also measure your levels of triglycerides. These fats differ from cholesterol, but there is a connection between them; although you can have high triglyceride levels without high cholesterol (and vice versa), lowering triglyceride levels does seem to help bring down cholesterol. Keeping your daily fat intake to no more than 30 percent (and preferably 20 percent) of total calories consumed is vital to leveling off elevated cholesterol levels.

Monounsaturates may also protect LDL cholesterol from oxidation, a chemical change that can lead to clogged arteries and heart attacks. Other researchers cite different findings. When a Stanford University researcher analyzed 20 oil studies, he found that polyunsaturated and monounsaturated oils were equally effective in preserving heart-healthy HDL. "There were no detectable differences in total, LDL or HDL cholesterol," notes Christopher Gardner, Ph.D., a nutritional scientist at the Stanford Center for Research in Disease Prevention in Palo Alto, California.

The ozone helps oxidize fatty plaques, sort of liquefying them and removing them from the walls while making the red blood cells more flexible, so they can slip through these clogged arteries. This last measure is very important in preventing the need for bypass surgery and getting rid of angina pain. You might wonder how ozone therapy originated. Dr. Robins traces it back to World War I. It was found that men who had been burned by mustard gas or injured or shot and were kept in the back of the hospital tent, where the electric generators for the field lights were kept, were getting well.
