LIMA Blockage
About This Community:

Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) (aka: Coronary Artery Disease (CAD); Atherosclerosis; is the leading cause of death worldwide. It is a disease in which a waxy substance called plaque (plak) builds up inside the coronary arteries. These arteries supply oxygen-rich blood to your heart muscle. Over time, CHD can weaken the heart muscle and lead to heart failure or irregular heart rhythms (arrhythmia). The purpose of the community is to share support and information with Coronary Heart Disease patients, their loved ones, and caregivers.

LIMA Blockage

I am a 47 year old man whose problem started when I was 39. My LAD was 90% occluded. Six months later , that stent occluded and another one was placed . I had occlusions in that area several more times resulting in cardiac damage . In 2011 I had double by pass surgery. A few months ago I started experiencing chest pain and fatigue. After the typical exams, I ended up in the cath lab. The LIMA did not take and a another stent was placed to open the same area where I had problem before. I exercise daily, do  not smoke , eat healthy and take my meds regularly. I do not understand why the by pass did not work.

As far as I understand, inflammation is one of the reasons for that.

To try to reduce it, I do the following:

1) Try to avoid stress
2) I perform relaxation techniques for 20-30 minutes daily.
3) I take Omega 3
4) I try to get good levels on Vitamin D, Zinc and magnesium, to have a balanced immunitary system
5) I eat 5 small meals a day to minimize glucose peaks
6) I drink Green Tea
7) I minimize my sugar intake
8) I minimize the use of carbonate drinks
9) I avoid canned foods, to avoid chemicals.
10) I try to live in an environment with as little air pollution as I can
11) I try to avoid other contaminants (do not use plastic containers, tefal pans ....)

I also would like to eat meat and fish feed naturally, but this it is impossible for the average person today.
