ANGINA

CAUSES – The most common cause of angina is coronary artery disease. A less common cause of angina is spasm of the coronary arteries.

TREATMENT – Treatment of angina includes rest, medications, angioplasty, and/or coronary artery bypass surgery.  The best treatment method is maintaining a good diet and a healthy lifestyle.  Doctors may also prescribe medications such as nitrates, beta-adrenergic blockers, and calcium channel blockers.  Alternative therapies that can be used are; acupressure, ayurvedic medicine, and chelation therapy.

PREVENTION – It is best to maintain a low-cholesterol diet.  By adopting a good exercise routine, you will less likely have to worry about being overweight.  Smoking is never good for the heart, or the body; this will be a good time quit if you smoke.
