Congestive Heart Failure

Lifestyle Recommendations:

•   Reduce significant physical, emotional and chemical stressors and excessive obligations; practice stress-relieving                 activities.

•   Get 8 hours of solid, restorative sleep nightly; practice relaxation techniques and prayer/meditation regularly.

•   Avoid smoking and excessive alcohol consumption.

•   Avoid all over-the-counter medication (unless prescribed).

•   Address additional health concerns such as diabeteshypertension and atherosclerosis.

•   If approved by cardiologist and/or health care provider, practice High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT).

•   Incorporate yoga or mind-body practices to modulate stress and decrease inflammation.

Dietary Tips and Caveats:

•   Eat healthy fats like chia seeds, hemp seeds, flax seeds, avocados, raw nuts and wild fish.

•   Avoid calorie-rich, nutrient-poor meals such as processed foods and foods with trans fats, sugar and artificial                      sweeteners that just add to toxic body fat.

•   Limit sodium in the diet; use fresh herbs and/or organic lemon to season foods; strive for proper potassium-sodium        ratios by consuming avocados, cooked spinach, lima beans, and winter squash.

•   Eat a diet of unprocessed whole foods, abundant in organic (preferably), high antioxidant vegetables and hormone            and heavy metal-free animal proteins like wild fish, and organic, non-processed meats; avoid pre-packaged and                 processed foods.

•   Avoid sugar to cut risk of heart disease.

•   Incorporate healthy high quality protein shakes, like PaleoMeal® DF or PurePea™ protein to balance blood sugar              throughout the day.
