(NaturalNews) Hundreds of thousands fall victim to heart disease every year. The health-care cost to treat this devastating condition will triple by 2030. In this article you`ll discover the exact numbers and learn three natural ways to prevent heart disease naturally - without pharmaceutical drugs.

One in three Americans have some form of heart disease. What`s more, the cost of medical care for heart disease will rise from $273 billion to $818 billion if our ability to prevent this condition stays the same. "We were all surprised at the remarkable increase in costs that are expected in the next two decades," says Paul Heidenreich, chairman of the American Heart Association expert panel.

Fortunately, if we take a closer look at what causes high blood pressure, stroke, coronary heart disease, heart failure and other common conditions, we will see how to prevent them - or even treat them - naturally. Here are three simple and scientifically proven tips that will help you keep a healthy heart:

  1. Eat a healthy diet - stay away from processed meat such as bacon, sausages and salami. Scientists from Harvard University have discovered that every 1.8 ounces of processed meat consumed per day raised the risk of heart disease by 42 percent. You should also increase your intake of anti-inflammatory foods, such as fresh vegetables and omega-3 fats.

  2. Exercise regularly - ongoing research has shown that exercise is good for the heart and circulation because it lowers blood pressure, reduces strain on the heart and increases good HDC cholesterol. Aim for a half hour walk every day, or an hour three times per week (aerobic activities are best).

  3. Learn how to deal with stress - even allopathic physicians now agree that stress can play a key role in the development of chronic heart disease. That means you should identify situations in your life that cause you to experience severe stress and learn how to deal with them. This could mean meditation, yoga, or simple deep breathing exercises.


Pharmaceutical drugs won`t fix heart disease. In 2006, a drug from Pfizer called torcetrapib was found to miraculously raise HDL and lower LDL cholesterol. The result? A 25 percent increase in deaths from heart attacks and 200 percent increase in overall deaths in those taking the drug. After spending $800+ million in development, Pfizer had to cut off torcetrapib`s trial because of "an imbalance of mortality and cardiovascular events".

In the United States heart disease is the number one killer. Statins are the number one selling class of drugs. Do they result in fewer heart attacks and deaths? No. In order to save more lives, it is needed to raise awareness of the possible ways to prevent heart disease naturally.
