The ability to recognize heart disease symptoms is important, especially if you have a family history of heart disease or have other risk factors such as smoking and being overweight. The most common symptom is called “angina”.

Angina can be described as a discomfort, heaviness, pressure, aching, burning, fullness, squeezing or painful feeling in your chest. Other common heart disease symptoms are:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Palpitations (irregular heartbeats, skipped beats or a “flip-flop” feeling in your chest)
  • A faster heartbeat
  • Weakness or dizziness
  • Nausea
  • Sweating

Unfortunately, the symptoms of heart disease sometimes come on fast with little warning. That’s why it’s important to lower your risk through lifestyle changes such as diet and exercise, and through education.

Oral chelation therapy is another way to lower your risk of heart disease. Oral chelation therapy is helping heart patients every day.
