In this video, Dr. Berg talks about the best diet for heart disease and the several causes of heart attack.

Causes of Heart Attack:
1. Clogged Coronary Artery – It abstracts the blood flow to the heart muscle.
There is always some type of damage or inflammation beforehand happening in the wall of the coronary artery – then the body starts accumulating cholesterol, protein and calcium as a Band-Aid which causes to start developing plaques, clot and if it became big enough, it can either dislodge or stop the flow of the artery which couldn’t supply oxygen to the muscle tissue.
The cause of inflammation is high levels of insulin and low nutrients.

2. Arrhythmia – problem with the pacemaker, the rhythm of the heart is off and blood can pull in different parts of the heart which could develop a clot and the clot could spread and clog an artery.
Potassium and magnesium are the nutrients that control the rhythm of the heart.

3. Heart Muscle (Muscle Cramps) – vitamin E has a very specific purpose of increasing oxygen in the heart muscle. But if you are low in vitamin E, the heart has to work harder and it will have a tendency to cramp up that could lead to angina and heart attack.
myocardial infarction with nonobstructive coronary arteries (MINOCA)

Healthy ketogenic diet is recommended to support a healthy heart.

To sum up: sugar and refined carbs must be eliminated from our diet and replaced with veggies, natural fats, and natural meats. Organic is preferred over GMO, and treat food additives as if they are poison. I think that pretty much covers it... Great info as usual, Doc. Your popularity is well deserved.

Thank you Dr. Eric Berg! I've been waiting for this video. I had a heart attack 6 months ago. I had 100 percent blockage in my right artery with a clot. The cardiologist said I was lucky to survive.

Everything stated is true, I agree. Two more things implied: eliminate all sugar even overly glorified modified fruit which is grown out of season and spikes insulin preventing weight loss. Most restaurants use unhealthy cooking oils and salad dressings and serve unhealthy margarine instead of real butter. PPT avoid the wrong people, avoid the wrong places, avoid the wrong things.

The consensus is moving toward concluding the cause of most all heart attacks is insulin resistance which leads to inflammation which leads to a rupture of a plaque which leads to a blood clot which causes the heart attack/brain stroke/lung embolism. Stable plaque is hardly ever the problem. I speak from experience

Any of us could die at any second I get it. Sleep tight :P Just joking. Thank you for the info. I am 40 years old and have been athletic my whole life and am now having my first signs of heart problems. Poor eating is what did it. Sugar sugar and more sugar was what i had before in my diet. Now its veggie greens and more veggie greens. I have found that Sugar is very addictive because I notice I have cravings as if it was a drug or something. But its easy to say no because its sugar and unhealthy life then early death or veggie greens feeling healthy and living longer with better quality of life.

On an empty stomach take some nattokinase on one night and on the next night use some serrapeptase and it will clean out your arteries over a period of time. Concentrated garlic supplements and PQQ and CoQ10 and magnesium malate over a period of time along with walking 30 minutes a day should greatly improve heart function. Vitamin K2 mk7. R lipoic acid. Vit C. Braggs nutritional yeast. A teaspoon of MCT oil. Pasture raised eggs cooked in coconut oil with extra runny yolks
