Save $5000 per year by taking care of your heart and liver

liver 3liver 2liver 1If you exercise, eat right, and follow other heart-friendly habits, you’re probably less likely to end up in the hospital with heart problems, which translates to far lower health care costs. A recent study on heart disease concluded that health care costs were about $5,000 less per year in people with the most heart-healthy factors compared with those with the least number of factors. The positive thing about heart disease is that there are lots of things you can do on your own to reduce your risk substantially.

  • Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is a leading cause of chronic liver disease in the United States—and an increasingly recognized contributor to heart disease.
    When eating, know how the food (alcohol, smoking,moldy food, toxic food) or stress or lack of sleep can affect your liver.
  • The inflammatory compounds and other substances pumped out by a fat-afflicted liver might promote the atherosclerotic process that damages the insides of arteries and makes blood more likely to clot. This combination may lead to a heart attack or a stroke.
  • Drink water with a tsp of apple cider vinegar and warm water with cinnamon, lemon and honey during the day.
  • Sleep at regular hours and exercise at least 30 min a day.
  • Get some sunshine and ensure clean air and water.
  • Avoid all toxins. Limit saturated fats (found in meat, dairy, and eggs), refined carbohydrates (anything made with white flour), and added sugar, especially from sodas and other sweetened beverages.
  • Eat colored veggies and fruits. When eating lean and grass fed meat, add pineapple and papaya as your snack as digestive enzymes.
  • Take probiotics and fish oil.
