Causes of Chest Pain

Did you know that arterial diseases are the most common causes of chest pain ?
Are there ways to get rid of chest pains?
Lets talk about arterial diseases and chelation therapy in this article.

Chest pain is primarily caused by coronary artery diseases. It is caused by myocardial ischemia or the reduction of the oxygen supply in the heart muscles. This is due to the arterial plaques that block the flow of the blood that carries oxygen towards the heart.

The symptom may last up to10 minutes and its occurrence is in a regular pattern. This symptom can occur in any age group, but mostly attacks those who are highly at risk. Risk factors include smoking, obesity, sedentary lifestyle, nutrition and family history of heart problems.

Causes of chest pain or its precipitating factors include activities like walking, jogging, running and carrying heavy workloads. Stress, anxiety and severe depression can also trigger an attack.  When the pain gets sharper and is prolonged, it might indicate a pending heart attack and the patient must be taken immediately to the hospital.

The longer the time it is not treated, the higher the possibly for serious complications.  Management regimes include nitroglycerin patches and pain relievers. The doctor may also prescribe beta blockers and calcium antagonists to maintain normal blood pressure. These remedies are only for the relief of the symptoms.

In order to reverse the condition, a chelation therapy might be required by your doctor. It is an invasive therapy done intravenously. It is used to take away or remove the plaques in the arterial wall that facilitates in maintaining regular blood flow. This procedure is done with risks like infection and blood contamination. It is also very costly.

A non-invasive solution can be cost-effective.  A non-invasive solution might be in a form of a suppository.  It would also be safe to use and with lesser side effects. It can also prevent fatty build ups in arterial walls that help prevent progression of the disease as well as hasten the healing process.

A meticulous approach to cardiovascular care is needed to prevent complications.  Patient education is important and knowing the causes of chest pain and its management is a must.
