Benefits - Arteriosclerosis, Peripheral Artery Disease
Orthotebb Health Shoes have benefits for Health, Fitness and Therapeutic Symptom Improvement.
Heart attacks, strokes, peripheral artery disease (PAD), and angina can result from the same basic cause: blockages in the arteries. These blockages often occur because of arteriosclerosis, or "hardening of the arteries." You may have heard the words before. But do you really know what's really going on?
Your arteries are flexible tubes that carry blood from your heart to the rest of your body. Blood brings oxygen and nutrients to all of your organs and muscles.
Arteriosclerosis develops when fats, cholesterol, calcium, and other substances in the blood begin to stick to the inner walls of the arteries. These deposits are called plaques. They build up and narrow your blood vessels. They also make your arteries more brittle and rigid than healthy arteries.
As the arteries narrow, it's harder for the blood to get to the cells that need it. "The artery becomes like a clogged supply line," says Elizabeth Ross, MD, a cardiologist and spokeswoman for the American Heart Association.
The problem gets worse if the plaque tears or breaks. Your body's natural response is to form blood clots. But these clots narrow the artery even further. They might block it off entirely. Clots can also detach and travel through your bloodstream, causing a blockage elsewhere in your body.
Genes can play a role in the development of arteriosclerosis. But treatable conditions - such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and diabetes -- are common causes.
But when it comes to cardiovascular disease, medicines and surgery are only a small part of your overall treatment.
According to the experts, here are some of the things you need to do.
Stop smoking. Smoking promotes blood clotting and it constricts the blood vessels. But once you quit, the effects tend to go away quite quickly.
Get on a healthy diet. Good nutrition -- eating foods low in fat and high in fruits and vegetables -- is an important way of controlling cardiovascular disease. Ask your health care provider for specific recommendations. Or get a referral to a nutritionist. Depending on your condition, you may need to reduce the salt in your diet as well. Get more physical activity. Check with your healthcare provider before starting a new exercise routine. But physical activity is key for people fighting cardiovascular disease. The American Heart Association recommends gradually working up to 30 to 60 minutes of physical activity on most days of the week.
Walking in Orthotebb Health Shoes is an excellent low-impact exercise, which can aid in lowering overall cholesterol levels, blood sugar and blood pressure, while at the same time improving blood circulation. With each step, there is a deep vein pumping action, which combined with all the muscular activity, greatly increases circulation in the lower body. As part of a healthier lifestyle, Orthotebbs help users prevent and improve arteriosclerosis and PAD .
