Cell Therapy and Heart Health: Be Healthy during American Heart Month

According to the American Heart Association, someone in the US has a stroke every 40 seconds. About 85.7 million adults have hypertension, which is just over a third of the population of the United States. By the year 2030, it is estimated that 23.6 million people worldwide will die of cardiovascular disease. Here at ICBR, we believe that we as a country—indeed, as a global community—can improve these numbers. Cell Therapy, in conjunction with other interventions, addresses several of the factors that contribute to poor heart health.

Here’s how it can help:

Metabolic Syndrome

Metabolic syndrome is a collection of symptoms and conditions, risk factors for cardiovascular disease and diabetes. You cannot self-diagnose metabolic syndrome, but a series of simple tests done by your health care provider can determine whether you have it. Conditions to look out for include:

  • Abdominal obesity
  • Triglyceride levels of 150 mg/dL of blood or greater
  • HDL cholesterol levels of 40 mg/dL of blood for men, 50 mg/dL for women
  • High blood pressure
  • High blood sugar

If you have three or more of these conditions, you have metabolic syndrome. It’s important to get these things under control because people with metabolic syndrome are at higher risk for coronary heart disease, heart attack, and type 2 diabetes. But there is good news. By maintaining a healthy weight, eating right, and exercising, you can gain control.

Cell therapy is another option that can help. In conjunction with the above interventions, cell therapy supports and regenerates the organs and tissues that are responsible for metabolic syndrome.

Adrenal Fatigue

While metabolic syndrome is characterized by multiple symptoms of excess, adrenal fatigue lies on the other end of the spectrum. Recognizable from its symptoms—low blood pressure, fatigue, body aches, weight loss, lightheadedness—adrenal fatigue can be bad for heart health as well. One of the main reasons adrenal fatigue is bad for the heart is because oversleeping is bad for the heart.

The amount of sleep you should get depends on your body’s specific needs, but health professionals suggest the average adult should be getting seven to nine hours per night. With adrenal fatigue, some patients feel so worn out that they only get out of bed for a few hours on bad days. Sleeping this much can be dangerous for your health. Research suggests that people who sleep more than nine hours per night on average experience higher rates of health conditions, including

  • Stroke
  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Inflammation
  • Depression

If you don’t feel well rested after getting nine or more hours of sleep, you should consider visiting a sleep specialist.

Adding cell therapy to your adrenal fatigue treatments can help boost your body’s response. At ICBR, we will work with you to find what treatment options are best for your situation.
