More Women With Heart Disease Are Having Babies

The inevitable result of the childhood obesity epidemic is severe health issues appearing more frequently in adults. Futurity reports that this has resulted in a massive increase in heart disease in pregnant women.

The numbers are simply stunning. Researchers found that instances of women with heart disease giving birth surged 24 percent between 2003 and 2012. They also found that heart disease is the leading cause of death in pregnant women.

We have an epidemic of heart disease in this country and the conventional treatments, such as the use of statin drugs and surgeries involving artery bypasses and stents, typically do not work well. One reason may be that the conventional view of the heart is entirely flawed.

Cardiologists and doctors in general are taught that the walls of the heart create pressure, which causes propulsion of the blood through the body. In essence, the heart is viewed as a pump — a pressure propulsion system caused by the muscular contraction of the ventricles. However, your body actually contains an enormous amount of blood vessels. They would cover three football fields, and if placed end-to-end, they would encircle the Earth between one and three times.

This is not mere trivia to Dr. Thomas Cowan, a family physician and a founding member of the Weston A. Price Foundation. He is attempting to shift the heart disease paradigm entirely and has argued that viewing the heart as a pump is not accurate.

He views the heart as being more of a hydraulic ram and vortex-creating machine.  Interestingly, the work of Gerald Pollack, author of "The Fourth Phase of Water," was instrumental in helping Cowan understand the function of the heart and how blood flows if it isn't being pushed or pumped by the heart.

To learn more, I highly recommend picking up a copy of Cowan's book, "Human Heart, Cosmic Heart: A Doctor's Quest to Understand, Treat, and Prevent Cardiovascular Disease." I have also published an article written by Cowan in 2014, in which he provides his perspective on the real cause of heart attacks, which you can read through.
