 Diet for angina
 Diet for angina is of great importance. In the initial stages of the disease, it even has a separate therapeutic value, that is, the use of diet alone is capable of delaying the development of atherosclerosis, which is the basis of coronary heart disease and angina.


Nutrition for angina - basic principles

Angina - is one of the manifestations of coronary heart disease (CHD), which develops against the background of atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis also develops in disorders of fat metabolism: the intake of large amounts of animal fat promotes the formation of "bad" cholesterol that is deposited in the walls of blood vessels as atherosclerotic plaques, causing a reduction in the lumen of the vessel. Through these narrowed coronary arteries to the heart muscle gets enough oxygen and develops a chronic lack of oxygen. When physical exercise myocardial oxygen demand increases, which causes ischemia (acute oxygen deficiency) and its cells attack pain.

To prevent progression of angina, you need to completely change their lifestyle, including nutrition. Only the constant physical activity, good nutrition and avoiding bad habits will help to prevent serious complications of CHD.

Diet angina not contain animal fat products. The only exception is fatty saltwater fish, which consists of Omega-3 fats have a positive influence on cholesterol metabolism.

Not Recommended for angina and overweight: this increased load on the heart muscle, which in terms of lack of oxygen, and so working in emergency mode. Therefore, the power angina should exclude carbohydrate (muffins, cakes, candy, etc.). They can be useful to replace the complex carbohydrates in vegetables, fruits and cereals.

It should also reduce the amount of salt. This will reduce the load on the heart by reducing blood volume (salt attracts water). In order that the food did not seem quite insipid, instead of the usual dishes dosalivaniya better to use fresh herbs: chopped parsley, dill Dill: benefits and harms of fragrant spices  Dill: benefits and harms of fragrant spices
 , Cilantro and other things.

   or rest shall not contain products that can contribute to coronary artery spasm. This strong tea, coffee, spicy and smoked foods, spirits (regular intake of alcoholic beverages causes a spasm of blood vessels). Absolutely contraindicated in angina smoking - it also contributes to the persistent narrowing of the coronary vessels.

Thus, the diet for coronary artery disease (angina) should include:

  • food should be steamed, boil or stew; from fried foods will have to give;
  • diet should be varied and include foods, both animal and vegetable origin;

Fats - Vegetable 1/3 of the total, once a week you can eat fatty fish, they contain fat enhances immunity Strengthening the immune system - help the immune system  Strengthening the immune system - help the immune system

The diet of patients with coronary heart disease should contain a sufficient amount of alkalizing foods. This milk, vegetables, wholemeal bread, rice, eggs, cod. This contributes to improvement of the body and improve the metabolism.

It should also eat more foods rich in potassium and magnesium (in these minerals, especially the heart muscle needs). Potassium is found in bananas Bananas: the benefits and harms health  Bananas: the benefits and harms health
 , Cabbage, dried apricots. Magnesium - walnuts, carrots, beets, cereals.

All of these products are able to cover the needs of the organism in vitamins and minerals. In the spring, when vegetables and fruits is less, you can take vitamin and mineral complexes.

Patients with coronary heart disease and angina, should adhere to a lifetime of good nutrition. Diet for angina - is one of the treatments for this disease

 Diet for breast cancer
 Diet for breast cancer is an essential component of integrated treatment. Nutrition and development of tumors are larger problem that includes a variety of information. Carcinogenic effects of certain foods, as well as polluting of the factors known for a long time. There are also products that prevent the development of tumors.

The main objectives of diet therapy for breast cancer

The main objectives of diet therapy in breast cancer (BC) are:

  • weight correction; overweight - a body fat, and the fat cells produce estrogen, promotes tumor growth; requires constant monitoring of the amount eaten and calories burned;
  • normalization of metabolic processes - they are the original cause mutation of cells and degeneration of the cells of a malignant tumor; for this woman must get enough protein, fat, carbohydrates, vitamins, macro- and micronutrients;
  • restore the function of digestion, bile production and zhelchevyvedeniya; particularly harmful alcohol - a daily consumption of 50 ml of alcohol increases the risk of breast cancer recurrence in 1, 7 times;
  • the use of food and nutritional supplements to food, providing antimutagenic, antioxidant, anti-estrogen effect and thus reduces the risk of recurrence or tumor.

Fat diet composed of breast cancer

It was found that the decrease in caloric intake from fat suspend the development of breast cancer. But fats are fats strife. Some fats are essential to the body. A sufficient amount of animal (saturated) fat woman can receive a low-fat animal foods (meat, fish and dairy products).

For better use of cooking vegetable (unsaturated) fats. Vegetable oil needed by the body for proper metabolism, but they do not contain cholesterol, the body of which is formed estrogens.

Therefore, proper rational use of fats in the diet is the foundation of breast cancer. From the diet women should be eliminated fat, lard, pork, meat products high in fat (eg sausages), dairy products high fat, eggs, creams and confectionery products containing them (cakes).

It is recommended to enter into the diet of dairy and meat products and low-fat, vegetables, fruits, legumes.

Products increased utility in breast cancer: vegetable oil, sea fish and seafood, soy and soy products, green tea, garlic, vegetables, fruits, bran, flakes.

What foods can stimulate tumor growth

Tumor growth can stimulate the excessive consumption of meat. Even lean boiled or stewed meat is a source of biologically active substances that contribute to tumor development. But the use of such a small amount of meat is not usually affect the metabolism Improves metabolism and losing weight without dieting  Improves metabolism and losing weight without dieting
 . If used fatty, fried, smoked meat, it has a significant effect on the metabolism, as it contains a much larger number of carcinogens.

Activated tumor growth alcohol - it stimulates the synthesis of female sex hormones and inhibits the intestinal absorption of folic acid, which determines the stability of the cells to a carcinogenic effect.

Simple carbohydrates (all sweet and butter) should also be excluded from the diet - they stimulate the production of insulin The principles of action of insulin - the science of saving lives  The principles of action of insulin - the science of saving lives

Foods that inhibit the development of breast cancer

Foods containing phytoestrogens - compounds similar in structure to the female sex hormone estrogen. Due to the structural similarity of phytoestrogens occupy the cell receptors for the female hormones Female hormones: because you - a woman!  Female hormones: because you - a woman!
 As well as their biological activity is lower (1-2% of the activity of estrogen), hormonal effects on the cell is significantly impaired. This phytoestrogens have modulating action if the effect of natural estrogens lower - they increase it if the high - reduce, thus regulating hormones women.

Phytoestrogens contains soy. The soybean also contains Boumkena Berka factor that inhibits the action of enzymes of tumor cells and thus contributes to their destruction. Soy protein is the most complete substitute for animal protein.

The protective effect of breast cancer also have a vegetable fat, fat sea fish, red grapes, green tea, garlic Garlic health: almost a panacea  Garlic health: almost a panacea
 , vegetables and fruits.

Diet for breast cancer can significantly suppress tumor development. Especially important to follow a diet for women who are at risk of developing breast cancer.
