Methods for purifying blood vessels from atherosclerotic plaques and thrombi
As you know, the leading place in the structure of mortality is occupied by cardiovascular diseases.Unfortunately, strokes and myocardial infarctions have become a real scourge of our society.Prerequisites for the development of these terrible diseases are atherosclerosis, as well as an increase in blood viscosity with the formation of thrombi.To prevent neither heart attack nor stroke, it is important at the time to diagnose predisposing factors, and then start an active fight with them.Table of contents: Harmful and healthy cholesterol Risk factors What are the risks of atherosclerotic plaques?
Harmful and healthy cholesterol
At the heart of the development of atherosclerosis is the deposition of cholesterol in the inner wall of the vessels.In the views of many people, cholesterol is something absolutely bad.In fact, this is not entirely true.
There are several fractions of lipoproteins( cholesterol compounds):
- Very low density lipoproteins;
- Low-density lipoproteins;
- High-density lipoproteins.
The first two, namely, LDL and VLDL are just the same harmful cholesterol, since they have the property of depositing on the vessel wall with the formation of an atherosclerotic plaque.But the HDLP on the contrary lower the level of harmful fractions of lipoproteins.Therefore, in the treatment of atherosclerosis, one must strive to increase the level of HDL and lower LDL and VLDL.

Everyone is at risk of forming atherosclerotic plaques, however, some people are less, and others are heavier.An important role in the development of atherosclerosis is played by hereditary predisposition, but no less significant are other factors. So, significantly increase the risk of atherosclerotic plaques forming factors such as:
- Overweight;Overduration and malnutrition;
- Insufficient physical activity;
- Endocrine diseases( eg, hypothyroidism, diabetes mellitus);
- Bile stasis, provoked by various disorders in the liver.
What are the most dangerous atherosclerotic plaques?
Atherosclerotic plaques located on the inner surface of the vascular wall, gradually narrow the lumen of the vessel itself.This leads to the fact that the normal movement of blood in this area is difficult.Imagine a water pipe, the walls of which are rust-covered from the inside.Water flows through such pipes in a thin stream.And if you clean the pipes, the water on them will flow quickly, with great pressure.So it happens with the vessels.
If the blood flow is disturbed, then the organs will suffer from a lack of oxygen.So, if the cerebral vessels are affected, the main organ of the central nervous system suffers, and if the vessels of the heart are affected, then the heart muscle suffers.
The wall damaged by atherosclerosis becomes brittle over time, microcracks can occur on its surface, to which platelets immediately rush to form a blood clot( clot) to attach to the site of damage and stop bleeding.In addition, large atherosclerotic plaques can grow vessels that are capable of bursting and forming blood clots.Formed clots of blood are able to break away, get into the bloodstream and clog the blood vessels.Therefore, in the presence of atherosclerosis, it is necessary to fight not only with plaques, but also thrombi.What are the methods for purifying blood vessels from atherosclerotic plaques and blood clots?Recommended to read:
Methods for the purification of vessels
How to diagnose the presence of atherosclerosis?To do this, it is necessary to undergo a study to determine the blood of the PTI( prothrombin index), MNO( international normalized ratio), and the level of total cholesterol, its fractions and triglycerides.In addition, the doctor can recommend to undergo ultrasound or CT of the vessels of the internal organs, through which it will be possible to determine the presence of atherosclerotic plaques.If the results indicate the presence of atherosclerosis - it's time to start its treatment.
There are several ways to cleanse vessels from atherosclerotic plaques:
- Changing the nature of nutrition;
- Use of medicines;
- Use of dietary supplements;
- Application of traditional medicine.
Products cleaning the vessels
It's not a secret that the features of nutrition strongly influence the formation of atherosclerotic plaques.Therefore, changing the diet is the basis for the treatment of atherosclerosis. To prevent the formation of new plaques, it is necessary to exclude from the diet such products as:
- Fatty meat( pork, beef);Meat offal( brains, liver);
- Fatty milk products;
- Products containing trans fats( margarine, cheap butter);
- Flour products;
- Egg yolks;
- Filled broth;
- Coffee-containing products.
For the purification of vessels from atherosclerotic plaques, as well as the stabilization of the level of cholesterol in the diet, it is necessary to add such products:
- Cereals and cereals;
- Sea fish;
- Lean meat( chicken, turkey, rabbit meat);Vegetable oils( olive, linseed);
- Fresh vegetables and fruits;
- Milk products of low fat content.
Forget about fried, smoked products.Prefer cooking food by boiling or baking.In addition, follow the drinking regimen and consume enough water.Of course, one change in the diet will not be enough.You need to normalize your lifestyle, in particular, quit smoking.It is very important to ensure sufficient physical activity - this is a guarantee of health.
Use of medicines
If your goal is to clean the vessels from atherosclerotic plaques, without drugs stabilizing the cholesterol level is indispensable. The following medicines are used:
- Sequestants of bile acids( colisevels, colestipol, cholestyramine);
- Statins( rosuvastatin, atorvastatin, lovastatin, zocor, choletar, atacor);
- Fibrates( fenofibrate, bezalip, lypanor, gevil);
- Niacin and its derivatives( nicotinic acid);
- The drug for suppressing the absorption of cholesterol in the intestine( guarem);
- Other drugs for lowering cholesterol( probukol, tiadenol, polikozanol, ezetemib).
The selection of the medicament and its concentrations are made taking into account the results of laboratory tests.Self-medication should not be dealt with, because certain combinations of anti-lipidemic drugs are highly undesirable because of the risk of side effects.The use of anti-lipidemic drugs not only prevents the emergence of new atherosclerotic plaques, but also facilitates the purification of blood vessels.
To prevent the formation of thrombi, prescribe such medicines:
These drugs can be taken for a long time according to the doctor's indications.This will help cleanse blood from blood clots.
Application of BAA for cleaning vessels
Food supplements are not medicines, they are additives to food.The main component of many biologically active additives are plants that are able to stabilize the level of cholesterol. Among such tools are:
- CardioActive Hawthorn;
- Doppelgerz active cardio hawthorn;Syringe hips with hawthorn.
Essential in the fight against atherosclerotic plaques are dietary supplements containing omega 3 and 6 fatty acids.It is not only well known to all known fish oils, but also omakor, vitrum-cardio, epadol-neo.
And for the dilution of blood, they are prescribed such dietary supplements:
- Garlic powder;
- Rosehip syrup with hawthorn;
- The fruits of the ashberry are red.
Both medicines and dietary supplements should be selected by a physician taking into account the state of human health, as well as the results of the research.Recommended reading:
In some cases, if there are atherosclerotic plaques in the vessels, doctors recommend performing a surgical procedure to prevent myocardial infarction.In developed countries, this is a very common procedure, unlike the post-Soviet states.This has its own reasons, above all, the high cost of the procedure, because of which not every person, and especially the pensioner can afford such a procedure as a prophylaxis of myocardial infarction.
Thus, the area of the vessel's shell that is affected by an atherosclerotic plaque can be excised, and an implant is placed instead.This operation is called endarterectomy.
In addition, there are operations of bypass vessels, balloon angioplasty.These surgical interventions do not imply the removal of atherosclerotic plaques.Their purpose is to restore blood flow in the narrowed plaques of the lumen of the vessel.
Folk remedies for vessels
Traditional medicine can complement the traditional methods of combating atherosclerotic plaques.But the only way to treat people's means can not be, because they do not have sufficient efficiency.
The long-known tool for fighting atherosclerotic plaques is garlic.Phytotherapists believe that the use of this plant can reduce cholesterol and blood viscosity, strengthen the vascular wall.
To prepare a folk remedy, chop 150 grams of garlic, place in a glass jar and pour 150 milliliters of alcohol( vodka).The container should be closed with a lid and put in a dark place.After ten days, the infusion should be filtered through gauze and the resulting liquid should be insisted for three more days.You need to use tincture three times a day for half an hour before eating, previously dissolving twenty drops in fifty grams of water.
Clean vessels with tincture of rose hips with needles.Rosehip, as is known, lowers cholesterol, and also strengthens the vascular wall.To prepare the infusion it is necessary to pour into the dishes five tablespoons of crushed pine needles, add two spoons of rose hips and onion husks, pour 700 ml of hot water.The container with the mixture should be placed on a fire and cooked for ten minutes.Then remove the container from the plate, pour the liquid into the thermos bottle and insist it for six to eight hours.It is necessary to consume 500 ml of broth daily for a month.
In addition, to combat atherosclerosis, you can use a walnut, because it includes substances that help resolve the cholesterol plaques.It is necessary to take peeled nuts and twist in a meat grinder.Twice a day about an hour before meals you need to eat a spoonful of twisted nuts.After that you can drink a glass of water.
