FULL SPECTRUM LIGHT & SUNLIGHT: Full spectrum light, which includes sunlight, is another vital nutrient for heart function. Unfortunately, people have been misled about wearing sunglasses and applying sunblock, which prevent the body from absorbing vital nutrients from full spectrum light and sunshine. This type of light creates energy and strengthens the immune system. In fact, photons from sunlight, quality protein, and EFAs in balance (omega 3 in particular) are what enable the heart to keep ticking. This is a form of human photosynthesis, and the more sunlight you get, without burning, the healthier your heart. To learn more, READ “LIGHT: A VITAL NUTRIENT, by Lady Carla Davis, MPH, in the August 2017 issue of MOH and other light articles in the September 2018 MOH issue that featured Dr. Octavio Perez.

NUTRITIOUS DIET & LIFESTYLE: Biochemical individuality and various factors determine what kind of diet is best for you. Work with a good nutritionist to find out what your heart needs to be healthy and free of disease. Consume a healthy, nutritious diet that provides these nutrients and maintain a slim waistline. A larger than normal waistline is a risk factors for heart disease. Maintaining a proper level and ratio of the heart minerals, such as sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, manganese, and iodine are vital for heart health and happiness. A deficiency or imbalance of any of these minerals can be deadly. Women have often been told that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach! Well, the same applies to both a woman’s and child’s heart!

SLEEP: Sleep is vital for a healthy heart at every age. Lack of or poor quality sleep disrupts many of the body’s biological processes and contributes to cardiovascular disease, coronary heart disease, mood disorders, insulin resistance, poor immune function, and lower life expectancy. Adolescents who don’t sleep well are also at risk.

One study found that men with severe sleep apnea were 58% more likely to develop congestive heart failure then men without this night-time breathing disorder. Shift work and a constantly changing night-time work schedule can also put you at risk.

When you sleep your body repairs and replenishes hormones. During long, deep periods of rest, certain chemicals are activated that help normalize blood pressure and heart rate. As Dr. Mark Hyman, MD, ten-time #1 NYTimes Best Selling author, stated, “Poor quality sleep has become all too common in our stressed-out, super-busy, hyper-caffeinated, modern world.” Follow his “Five Tips For better Sleep” in the MOH October 2018 issue.
