Angina is caused by the narrowing of the Coronary arteries, these are the vessels that supply your heart with blood.

The arteries become furred up with plaque and fatty deposits which restricts the blood flow, this process is called Atherosclerosis and leads to coronary heart disease.

Angina sufferers experience pain and breathlessness, it can be accompanied by a choking feeling. Angina symptoms often occur during exercise and can be more prominent after exercise, a meal or during a cold weather spell.

Stress and Angina Symptoms

Anger and stress also tends to make Angina Symptoms worse, Angina is a combination of symptoms all caused by restricted blood flow in the arteries leading to the heart.

The type of pain is often described with Angina Symptoms is tightness in the chest or a heavy weight feeling, it doesn’t usually last more than a few minutes and can disappear after resting. As well as the pain, the victim may feel breathless, sweaty and have a sense of fear, indigestion and angina symptoms are often confused as the symptoms are very similar.

Contrary to popular belief Angina pain may not be limited to the chest, it can spread to the arms, neck and throat. Plaque in the arteries limits blood flow and attaches itself to the walls, blood can become so thick and hard to circulate that the heart will be under undue stress.

Medication for Angina Symptoms

Medications such as aspirin are often prescribed for angina symptoms, these thin the blood making it easier to pass through the restricted or blocked artery which will ease the angina symptoms but not treat the root of the problem. Chelation Therapy actually tackles the problem and not just the angina symptoms, which in turn can help to prevent strokes and heart attacks.

Together with a healthy diet and exercise program Oral EDTA Chelation Therapy can help to unblock arteries and ease Angina symptoms.
