One of the most common causes of a heart attack is acidity of the body. Hyperacidity lasting over a long period of time can lead to a sudden breakdown in the supply of blood and nutrients to the affected areas of the body.
Acid causes red blood cells to solidify
The fact that the supply can be stopped so abruptly is due to the acidosis rigidity of the erythrocytes (red blood cells). These transport the oxygen that is indispensable for life into the tissue. Although they themselves have a diameter of 7.5 µm, due to their elastic structure they can also flow through capillaries with a diameter of only 3 to 4 µm; even passing through short narrow passages with a diameter of 2 µm is possible. Too much acid pollution robs the red blood cells of their elasticity so that they can suddenly freeze from one moment to the next.
Lack of oxygen due to hyperacidity
After the erythrocytes have lost their elasticity and, as a result, fluidity, they are no longer able to absorb oxygen to a sufficient extent, so internal shortness of breath occurs.
At the same time, anaerobic fermentation causes an increase in local acidosis, as hyperacidity of the body is technically called, and the structure of the cells affected by it becomes rigid. As a result, they can no longer carry out their own metabolism and an additional acidification of the cell nuclei occurs. Acidosis is thus a process that continuously reinforces itself after its initiation.
The gradual development of tissue hyperacidity leads to the progressive solidification of erythrocytes. These only transport a smaller amount of oxygen and cannot pass through bottlenecks in the capillaries, causing them to clog. The resulting hyperacidity intensifies the existing hyperacidity and, as a result, the erythrocyte rigidity again.
This vicious circle can be stopped, as long as it is detected in time. However, since it often goes unnoticed, stroke or heart attack is the result when the body’s own functions necessary to sustain life decrease just when they need to increase. After a certain period of time, the undersupply takes on a level that leads to partial tissue death (necrosis).
Supply of bases helpful
The medical term infarction, which can be translated as stuffing, is an accurate description of the processes in the patient’s body. If only a few capillaries are affected and the hyperacidity has only lasted for a short time, the process may be reversible, which requires a supply of bases. Erythrocyte rigidity is lifted and the part of the tissue that has not yet been permanently damaged can recover if sufficient oxygen is transported again.
In this way, the IUD, which is often fatal, can be terminated and the seizure can remain temporary. However, the process is not reversible in the areas where cell death has occurred.
After a heart attack, a healthy lifestyle is important
After suffering a heart attack, it is imperative that the patient takes care to better control the metabolic processes in his body and avoid future hyperacidity.
The reason for a heart attack is often laid in childhood. An unbalanced diet and lack of exercise cause an increase in deposits in the arteries, both in terms of their number and size. Later on, smoking is often added as another cause.
In addition, there is too little attention paid to the connection between body and psyche, as stress hormones can also promote angina pectoris and heart attacks.
Heart attack is preventable
Since both heart attacks and angina pectoris are ultimately not really independent diseases, but are basically just possible consequences of chronic acidification of the body, they are quite avoidable. This is because hyperacidity in turn results from an unfavorable lifestyle and diet – and this can be changed or optimized (more exercise, less stress, high-quality nutrition).
At the same time, deacidification measures can be used to reverse hyperacidity, bring the acid-base balance into balance and thus enormously reduce the risks of chronic diseases of all kinds.
Deacidifying measures include:
- Alkaline diet
- Alkaline minerals, e.g. marine coral or a citrate-based mineral mixture
- Alkaline baths
- Bitter substances
- Alkaline concentrates
- A deacidification program, which usually automatically contains points 2 to 5 and others
