Coronary heart disease or cardiovascular disease involve the heart and blood vessels,
(arteries, valves, heart muscles, capillaries and veins). In time,
arteries may become so narrow that they cannot deliver enough
oxygen-rich blood to the heart. This can cause angina which is a pain or
discomfort in the chest. This can be exasperated by high blood pressure and may be caused by high levels of LDL cholesterol building up the fatty
materials and plaque on the artery walls.
If a piece of the atheroma (fatty material) in the arteries breaks
away it may cause a blood clot to form.
If the blood clot blocks the coronary artery and cuts off the supply
of oxygen-rich blood to the heart muscle, the heart muscle may
become permanently damaged. This is known as a heart attack. If it travels to the brain it will result in a stroke. There are many natural ways to prevent heart disease and natural foods that can help once it has become an issue. Read more

Sepsis, also referred to as blood poisoning or septicaemia, is a condition triggered by the presence of harmful microbes and
their toxins in bodily tissues, typically through infection of a wound or even a small cut or bite from an insect or an animal. This then causes the immune system to attacks the body's own tissues and organs whilst trying to fight off the infection when it spreads in the blood. This can lead to a reduction of blood supply to vital organs such as the brain, heart and kidneys and cause organ failure which can be fatal. Read more
