Oxidative stress can occur when insufficient antioxidants are available to counteract the free radicals introduced into the body by smoke and pollution. This damages artery walls and so do sugary, processed diets. Vitamin C deficiency can prevent the blood vessel walls from being effectively protected due to a lack of collagen and elastin production, leading to lipoproteins being used to patch the walls up. The arteries have restricted flow when the walls thicken (arteriosclerosis) or when lipoproteins build-up (atherosclerosis) as a result of damage to the endothelial layer. Narrower arteries lead to higher blood pressure and interrupted blood supply is the cause of myocardial infarction (heart attack). Impaired flow may also be caused by blood clots or other blockages. Heart murmurs are caused by a deformed and leaking heart valve. Exercise can be a trigger for angina, though a long-term lack of exercise, combined with poor diet, will increase a person’s risk of developing heart problems. Metals, toxins and certain types of drugs, including illicit drugs, can also increase a person’s risk of heart attack and other conditions. Stress, both in the long-term and the short-term, and drinking coffee stimulate adrenalin release, which depletes vitamin C in the body. Being overweight and having vitamin D and other vitamin and mineral deficiencies can also contribute towards cardiovascular disease.
Cardiomyopathy can cause breathlessness, irregular heart-beat, chronic coughing, fatigue and the extremities of the body becoming blue. Fluid retention and difficulty breathing can happen as a result of congestive heart failure. Since atherosclerosis obstructs blood flow, it can lead to heart attack and other health problems. Thrombosis is where a blood clot blocks an artery and an embolism is a blockage cause by a blood clot or another solid body, creating local symptoms or problems throughout the body. Myocardial infarction causes a person to experience extreme chest pain and sometimes pain in the arms and throat, similar to the symptoms of angina.

Anti-cholesterol drugs can be used to treat patients with atherosclerosis. Beta-blockers and pacemakers are used to try to help arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat). In severe cases of heart disease, patients may even have heart transplant surgery. For those with any heart problem, if possible, hormonal medication is to be avoided and taking steps to reduce stress will help. A balanced diet containing healthy fats and a range of fruits and both raw and fermented vegetables should be consumed. It is best to keep red meat, sugary foods and wheat to a minimum. It is also vital to consume at least 2 litres of water per day as well as a small amount of salt. An appropriate daily exercise routine should be implemented and it will help to try to get enough sleep. Quitting smoking, avoiding illicit drugs and reducing alcohol intake will help prevent the condition from deteriorating any further.
Experiences and case studies
A 56-year-old family man had been diagnosed with dilated cardiomyopathy 4 years ago when he underwent bioresonance treatment. After 19 sessions, his symptoms had improved significantly, his BMI was a much safer value and he had gone from NYHA class IV to class II. This means that he went from having a severe stage of heart failure to a mild form that would only slightly limit his physical activity and enable him to rest comfortably.
