Alternative and Complementary Remedies Angina

Diet Therapy for Angina

The principal goals of nutritional therapy for angina are to improve the blood flow to the heart and the energy metabolism of the heart so that it requires less oxygen. The first step is to consume less saturated fat and cholesterol. Magnesium in your diet will improve the energy metabolism. Include plenty of leafy green vegetables, such as spinach, kale, mustard greens and turnip greens. These are good sources of magnesium.

Studies have shown that when people follow a diet that includes no animal sources except for skim milk, egg whites, and low fat yogurt, angina pain diminishes in a few weeks.

Eat a diet that is well balanced and contains plenty of fiber. Eat plenty of raw foods. For protein, eat broiled fish and skinless turkey and chicken, which are low in fat.

Include in the diet garlic, onions, and lecithin. They are shown to reduce serum cholesterol levels.

Add raw nuts (except pea nuts), olive oil, pink salmon, trout, tuna, Atlantic herring, and mackerel to your diet. These foods contain essential fatty acids.

Do not consume stimulants such as coffee and black tea, that contain caffeine. Also avoid tobacco, alcohol, chocolate, sugar, butter, red meat, fats (especially hydrogenated oils and animal fats), fried foods, and processed and refined foods.
