  • Apple cider vinegar and slice of ginger with lunch meal is great to unblock arteries. Also checkout videos on napaak bharti breathing exercises to help heat, kidneys and brain. plz wait 8 months after a ceserean operation to be safe.

  • Coconut oil is one of the best oils.. It natural not refined.. I have been having from childhood and generations before me and they never had heart problems.. Unless you use too much and don’t exercise at all then any oil is bad.

  • I know the AHA was on about it, but please not you too. Coconut oil is fine as a secondary or even primary oil for your diet. The whole “we can’t grow it or profit from it” should not factor into its actual dietary benefit.

  • Im 12 and i have every sign but if i die its ok because im so curious on what on the other side but I don’t want to die yet im not even close to ready and i have so much more to live for (yes i have had a heart attck before i was born with multiple heart diseases as well as diabetes) but my mom ate healthy its just how i was developed.

  • Jesus, what a sad outdated video. “Eat starch and polyunsaturated vegetable oils, don’t eat saturated fats.” Yeah right. Only if you actively want cardiovascular disease. It’s 2020 guys, this crap has been peddled since the 50s and has been shown to be upside down. How many people’s lives have been cut short by this “advice”?
