Welcome to Dr. George Jacob Heart Infocenter in Holisticonline.com!

The heart and vascular system is one of the largest and most important body systems. The cardiovascular system's primary functions are to deliver oxygen and vital nutrition to cells throughout the body and to aid in the removal of cellular waste products. Heart disease and stroke are the number-one and number-three killers in the United States and in most of the Western World. These two conditions are responsible for about forty- three percent of all deaths in the United States. They are often referred to as "silent killers" because the first symptom or sign in many cases is a fatal event.

There are numerous distinct disorders that relate to heart. These include arteriosclerosis and atherosclerosis, angina, heart attack, and heart failure, arrhythmias, myocarditis, cardiomyopathy, heart murmurs, rheumatic heart disease, valvular disease, mitral valve prolapse and high blood pressure or hypertension.

Diet and lifestyle changes are essential in treating heart problems. Important among them are getting more exercise and giving up smoking. According to complementary practitioners, proper functioning of the heart, also depends on the health and harmonious workings of other organs, such as the liver and kidneys.

Caution: If you suspect a heart attack or stroke, seek emergency medical treatment immediately. Time is of essence.
