Atherosclerosis is a disease of the whole organism, in which all vessels are damaged due to the deposition of a fat-like substance in them - cholesterol, with a further loss of their elasticity. Plaque formation reduces the vessel lumen, which significantly impairs blood circulation. Vascular disease of the brain manifests itself most often after 50 years. The disease is accompanied by headaches, dizziness, insomnia, memory loss, and later - intelligence.

Step 1

At the first suspicion of vascular atherosclerosis, contact your doctor, who will direct you to donate blood for cholesterol. When the level of cholesterol rises above 5 mmol / l, treatment is prescribed with medications that lower the level of cholesterol in the blood, blocking the synthesis of "bad" cholesterol at an intermediate stage, or washing out cholesterol from the vascular walls. These drugs include statins, fibrates, nicotinic acid, Lipostabil, Eikonol, etc.

Step 2

Use non-drug treatments. Properly organized nutrition and natural remedies that can disrupt the absorption of cholesterol in the gastrointestinal tract and disrupt its synthesis in the liver help to normalize metabolic disorders. The optimal variant of the patient's diet should be a set of products that maintains the following proportions: fresh vegetables - 25%, heat-treated vegetables - 25%, fresh fruits - 25%, animal proteins (cottage cheese, fish, eggs, boiled meat, dairy products) - 10%, vegetable oil - 5%. Olive, corn, peanut, soybean, sunflower, walnut oil are fats with high biological activity. 15 grams of vegetable oil satisfies the body's daily need for these acids.

Step 3

Avoid foods that are high in saturated fat. These are condensed milk, cream, butter, cheese and cottage cheese, cooking and pork fat, margarine, palm and coconut oil. All fatty meats, lard, ham, cold meats and liver. All bakery products are made from premium and first grade flour. Also sugar and all its derivatives, alcohol.

Step 4

Eat foods that contain potassium and magnesium. These are oat and millet groats, buckwheat, beans and soybeans, beets, zucchini, watermelons and peaches, dried apricots, prunes and dates, eggplants and herbs, as well as nuts.

Step 5

Maintain an active lifestyle: morning exercises, swimming pool, skiing, hiking and cycling. Walk for at least 40 minutes before bed.

Step 6

Take advantage of the experience of traditional medicine for the treatment of cerebrovascular atherosclerosis. Tinctures and decoctions of such plants as meadow clover, buckwheat, hawthorn, white mistletoe, sweet clover, onion, garlic, propolis, lemons, grapefruits, etc. are very useful.
