Heart Care with Marijuana Strains & CBD Oil | cannabisMD Articles

Heart

The heart is described as a muscular organ the size of your fist. Most living things have a heart, other than the exception of jellyfish and flatworms. The heart has one of the most important functions in the body. It provides every inch of the body with blood. The blood then provides oxygen and nutrients to the body, while also freeing the body from carbon dioxide. This process keeps us alive., which is why it’s so important to look after your heart. If you don’t look after your heart, your risk developing heart disease.

Heart disease, also known as cardiovascular disease, is the number killer in the United states. 610,000 people die of heart disease in the United States every year which is a staggering 1 out of every 4 deaths.

Heart disease can be 100% preventable. Improving your diet, no smoking, exercising regularly and cutting back on alcohol intake, can all reduce your risks of suffering from heart disease. However, heart disease can occur if you suffer from a birth defect that involves the heart.

When heart disease is left untreated, the risks of suffering from chest pains, strokes and/or a heart attack can increase which can be fatal. Heart care treatments for heart disease range from medications and clot busters to surgery (heart valve surgery which widens the valves within the heart) and pacemakers.

Our goal at cannabisMD is to provide a large library of articles in relation to everything you need to know about heart disease and what alternative, natural care can be provided through CBD oil treatments and the use of marijuana. These articles aim to provide information on lifestyle changes to reduce your risks of suffering from heart disease.
