    Eggs and arterial stenosis

    I’m a 64 year old male and have been diagnosed as having 70% arterial stenosis in my lower extremities and have been told it is severe I think I have a pretty good diet but I eat 2 or 3 eggs a day and I also drink a lot of 2% milk.

Also, would any ‘hearth healthy’ diet also be considered healthy for this arterial....

    Heart Concerns

    Bhang (cannabis) and High blood pressure and Palpitations

    About 3 weeks ago, I drank some bhang which is a local cannabis drink mixed with milk. I am unsure of the quantity of cannabis it had but it was certainly more than normal, given the reaction I had. My heart went into an overdrive, for about two hours I was breathing heavily, my muscles were twitching, my hands were cold and dry mouth. For the next two days I had high blood pressure, reaching 170 in the left arm. The doctor prescribed metaprolol 25mg for 10 days. The medicine worked during the day....
  • Stimulant use post-bypass surgery

    I am in my early 40s and suffered a heart attack/cardiac arrest and coded for 15 minutes.

After being back to work for about a month, my PCP decided that he was no longer comfortable writing a prescription....

    Is periodic supplementation beneficial?

    Supplements can be expensive and the list of important supplements seems to be growing daily. Is there a benefit to taking supplements (CoQ10, Omega-3s, etc...) at the recommended dosage but only once or twice a week or is that a waste of money? For example, 100 mg CoQ10 three times a week vs daily as some recommend.

    Hawthorn Berry or Celery Seed supplement and beta blocker

    Hi, I was wondering whether Hawhtorn Berry supplement or Celery Seed extract can be taken alongside beta blocker (Nebivolol in my case)? I am going through a really stressful period recently and I've been having some palpitations and I believe that my BP has also been elevated because of these recent stressors and I am looking for some natural supplement I can take for a little while before my situation will go back to normal. Are there any risks associated with taking either of them together....
