early predictors of heart disease

If you have one of the following problems, especially if you are under 40 years old, there is a high chance you have heart disease. Micro arteries are usually the first to get clogged and are difficult to spot on x-rays and blood tests. So one way of finding if there are mini artery blockages is to check to see if you have one of the following symptoms which will predict if you have heart disease. It’s not a full proof method to detect heart diseases, but if will serve as an early warning sign of future/imminent heart disease problems.

A 10 Second Mirror Test May Spot Heart Disease

When you think about checking for heart disease what probably comes to mind are expensive exams such as stress tests on a treadmill while hooked up to a high-tech electrocardiogram, cardiac catheterization or a coronary calcium CT scan. But a low-tech inexpensive look in the mirror may be more revealing than you ever imagined.

baldness on the crown of the head


A new study just published in the journal BMJ Open suggests that hair loss on the crown of the head might be an indicator of underlying heart disease. The investigators pooled data from six prior observational studies. A receding hair line was less problematic than baldness on the top to rear of the head (crown or “vertex” of the head). The increased risk was not huge (30 to 50%) but it was statistically significant. “Frontal” baldness was not linked to heart disease.

ear lobe crease


Another signal of heart disease may be an earlobe crease. Here is a link to see what it looks like. Researchers have been noticing an association between an earlobe crease and heart disease for nearly 40 years. The most recent report of a link came from the American Heart Association Meetings last fall. Danish investigators analyzed data from more than 10,000 volunteers participating in the Copenhagen Heart Study. Baldness on the top of the head and earlobe creases were associated with heart disease.

No one really has any good explanation for why hair loss or earlobe creases (or the Franks Sign) might be early warning signs of heart disease. The BMJ Open article proposes that high blood pressure, high cholesterol levels and atherosclerosis might also influence hair loss. That seems like a stretch. Another possible explanation is that insulin resistance leads to male pattern baldness and heart disease. Still another hypothesis is a pro-inflammatory condition is contributing to both hair loss and damage to artery walls in the heart. It has also been proposed that higher levels of male hormones (androgens) in the scalp and heart are the trigger underlying baldness and heart disease.

In a new study by Turkish researchers in the journal Angiology, 253 people with no known heart conditions but who had visible ear crease—are 10 percent more likely to suffer from blocked arteries. Earlobe creases were also more common among those suffering from the most severe arterial backups, the study authors discovered.

It’s not as crazy as it sounds. “There may be some relationship between aging of the skin and aging of the blood vessels,” says Arthur Friedlander, D.M.D., a professor of oral and facial surgery at UCLA. Friedlander has also published research on the link between earlobe creases and blocked arteries. Your earlobe is a concentrated end point for blood vessels, so if you have blood circulation problems, those blockages may show up as wrinkles in your lobes, he says.

Before you run to a mirror, understand that wrinkles are a part of aging, and the study results are far from conclusive, Dr. Friedlander warns. “An earlobe crease in conjunction with other abnormal findings like high blood pressure, or elevated weight or sugar levels, could be a subtle warning sign,” he says. But if you see a pronounced wrinkle before age 55—especially if you’re in your 40s—ask your doctor to check for heart trouble, he recommends.

Fatty cholesterol deposits around the eyes, a condition know as xanthelasmata, were the strongest individual predictor of both heart attack and heart disease, according to data presented this week at the American Heart Association scientific meeting in Los Angeles. There was a 35-per-cent increase in heart attacks among subjects with these yellow deposits around their eyelids and baggy eyes,  which could be signs of cholesterol buildup, researchers found.

Xanthelasma is a common condition among the elderly and those of Mediterranean or Asian descent. The condition occurs slightly more often in men than in women, usually in people over the age of forty. When a xanthelasma reaches a certain size and becomes nodular, it is sometimes referred to as a xanthoma, but these are two distinct conditions; xanthoma is a broader term for a wider classification of skin growths that can occur anywhere on the body.

erectile dysfunction


You may be aware that the inability of your arteries to dilate fully and to subsequently harden, also known as atherosclerosis, is a major cause of heart disease and can lead to stroke, heart attack and sudden death.

In a nutshell, this occurs because as the inner lining of your blood vessels (endothelium) undergoes damage and dysfunction and plaque accumulates, the subsequent narrowing and hardening of your arteries makes it harder for blood to flow through them and reach your heart and other organs.

As the disease process unfolds the smaller arteries in your body, such as those in your penis, often get blocked first, before the larger arteries leading to your heart.

The lack of blood flow to the penis results in erectile dysfunction, and this is why ED has been called the “canary in the trousers” for future heart problems. If you have any type of erection difficulty, it’s a good idea to see a qualified health care practitioner who can give your heart health a thorough check-up and help you develop a plan to fix the underlying causes of both issues.

The researchers found that the men with severe erectile dysfunction, compared to those with no problem, were eight times more likely to have heart failure, 60 percent more likely to have heart disease and almost twice as likely to die of any cause.

How to spot a heart attack before it happens – look out for pain in any of these parts of your body

Other tell tale signs of heart disease or even heart attacks are:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Swelling of feet and legs
  • Chronic lack of energy
  • Difficulty sleeping at night due to breathing problems
  • Swollen or tender abdomen with loss of appetite
  • Cough with frothy sputum
  • Increased urination at night
  • Confusion and/or impaired memory

So keep an eye on these predictors of heart disease so you can take corrective action to prevent the disease from getting worse through proper diet and nutritional supplementation.
Medicines should be the last resort because there’s a lot of side effects in taking these medications.

Due to decades of professional and media misinformation, most people believe they should avoid the midday sun and need to use sunscreen before, and several times during,
sun exposure. Sun exposure is very important to enable your body to make Vitamin D.


sun exposure UVA UVB vitamin D

The optimal time to be in the sun for vitamin D production is as near to solar noon as possible. That would be between roughly 10:00 am and 2:00 pm when the sun is at 50 degrees in the sky. When the sun is lower than 50°, the ozone layer reflects the more dangerous and potentially deadly UltraViolet A or UVA rays but let through thel (good) UltraViolet B or UVB-rays. It’s important to remember that vitamin D3 is formed from exposure to UVB rays, whereas UVA radiation actually destroys vitamin D. UVA’s also increase oxidative stress.

The ‘Shadow’ Trick
The trick to getting the most Vitamin D out of your daily sun exposure is to sunbathe when your shadow is shorter than your height. This means that in the winter, with the sunlight at a slant, your optimal sunbathing time is greatly narrowed down.

The more clouds there are, the less UV radiation reaches the earth’s surface. However, UV can penetrate cloud cover to some extent, so it is still possible to get sunburned on a cloudy day. This is especially true under light clouds, which can block infrared radiation but not UV radiation, leaving the day deceptively cool.

Likewise, some types of ground cover reflect UV radiation, increasing its intensity even in deceptively shaded areas. These surfaces include sand, snow, and water.

Air pollution, on the other hand, can block UV radiation too effectively. If the air pollution contains large amounts of ozone, UV penetration can be reduced to a sometimes dangerously low level for at-risk populations. This can be particularly true of cities surrounded by hills or mountains, which trap air pollution.


Avoid tanning through a window (including car windows) as it will increase your risk of skin cancer.


A minimum of 40% of the body surface (skin) needs to be exposed to the sun.


Dr. Mercola claims that we need 48 hours “after proper sun exposure” in order to absorb vitamin D containing oils from the skin surface, so do not wash with chlorinated water, nor go into a chlorinated swimming pool, or wash with soap for two (2) days.


Light skinned people need 10 to 20 minutes of sun exposure daily (FOR AT LEAST 2 TIMES A WEEK) while dark skinned people need 90-120 minutes daily. Caucasians and others with paler skin will hit an “equilibrium point” after about 20 minutes of exposure to UVB light, at which point vitamin D will no longer be produced.


Cover your face against sun exposure if possible. The skin around your eyes and your face is typically thinner than other areas of your body and the relatively small area will also not contribute much to vitamin D production. Too much sun exposure to your face will also contribute to cosmetic photo damage and premature wrinkling. You can use a safe sun block in this area or wear a cap. Use a non-toxic lotion with SPF15.


non-toxic sunscreen-ingredients

Avoid sunscreen / sun blocks (which are supposed to block UVB rays) as many of them contain harmful chemicals that will be absorbed into your bloodstream and increase your risk of cancers. Select sun screens that contain either zinc or titanium minerals, but not oxybenzone or retinyl palmitate (vitamin A). These moisturizing creams will not allow your body to produce any vitamin D.

Use organic coconut oil as a sun block instead.

Cotton clothing provides about SPF 15. In other words, you will get about 15 times your skin’s normal protection from the sun wherever you cover your body with clothing. Just remember that even with protective clothing on your body, it’s still important to monitor your skin for the telltale signs of burning.

If you get sun burn, ideally it is best to use the gel from a fresh plant, but there are commercial products available that have active aloe in them.

An excellent adjunct to vitamin D is the antioxidant astaxanthin (which acts as an internal sunscreen). Astaxanthin derived from Haematococcus Pluvialis


3 ways to get Vitamin D sunlight, supplements, fish

Fermented Cod Liver Oil
It contains Vitamin D3 instead of D3 sulfate is a delicate balance of beneficial co-factors, enzymes, essential fatty acids, antioxidants, and micronutrients. Specifically, Vitamin D works with Vitamin A to utilize calcium and phosphorous in the body. Contrary to what we have heard carrots contain betacarotene, not Vitamin A, so it is very likely that using D drops alone only gives us part of what we need for calcium transport. That’s why I take fermented cod liver oil in the winter months when Vitamin D when production from the skin is low.

Fresh, raw vegetables also provide your body with an abundance of powerful antioxidants that will help you fight the free radicals caused by sun damage that can lead to burns and cancer.

Some people may worry that if they are in the sun a lot they will overdose on Vitamin D. However this doesn’t happen, and here’s why. When you’re exposed to the sun, the UVB rays create vitamin D on your skin, while the UVA rays in the sunlight will tend to destroy excessive levels of vitamin D circulating in your body. That means that even “if” you are taking vitamin D and also getting it from the sun, the UVA rays in sunlight won’t allow you to have too much vitamin D.

Most people know that D2 – the synthetic version commonly prescribed by doctors – is not as potent as D3. Each microgram of orally consumed 25-hydroxyvitamin D3 is about five times more effective in raising serum 25 (OH)D than an equivalent amount of vitamin D2. However, besides being less potent, D2 supplements may actually do more harm than good overall.

Common Food Sources of Vitamin D:

  • Trout, rainbow, cooked
  • Salmon, cooked
  • Halibut, cooked
  • Milk, vitamin D fortified
  • Cereal, ready to eat, fortified
  • Pork, spareribs, cooked
  • Egg, whole, cooked
  • Mushrooms, shitake, cooked
  • Cereal, ready to eat, corn flakes
  • Frankfurter, beef
  • Butter
  • Cheese, cheddar
  • Common food sources of vitamin D

Following these guidelines will help to get optimum Vitamin D from sun exposure and minimize your chances of getting skin cancers.

So how do you know if you have entered into the summer season and into the time of year, for your location, where enough UVB is actually able to penetrate the atmosphere to allow for vitamin D production in your skin?


The first step is to determine the latitude and longitude of your location. You can easily do this on Google Earth, or if you are in the U.S. you can use the TravelMath Latitude Longitude Calculator to find your latitude and longitude. Once you have obtained that you can go to the U.S. Navy site to calculate a table to determine the times and days of the year that the sun is above 50 degrees from the horizon.

Please understand it is only theoretically possible to get UVB rays during those times. If it happens to be cloudy or raining, the clouds will also block the UVB rays. For a more detailed understanding of this, please view the following video, and/or read through the corresponding article.


Alternatively, if you have an iPhone or iPad you can download a free app called “D Minder“, which will make all the calculations for you. It was made by an Apple developer who was motivated to simplify the process of calculating the best time to get sun exposure (based on the above video).

From a health perspective, it doesn’t make much sense to expose your skin to the sun when it is lower than 50 degrees above the horizon because you will not receive any valuable UVB rays, but you will expose yourself to the more dangerous and potentially deadly UVA rays. UVA’s have a longer wavelength than UVB and can more easily penetrate the ozone layer and other obstacles (like clouds and pollution) on their way from the sun to the earth. UVA is what radically increases your risk of skin cancer and photoaging of your skin. So while it will give you a tan unless the companion UVB rays are available you’re likely doing more harm than good and should probably stay out of the sun to protect your skin.

During the times of the year when UVB rays are not present where you live you essentially have two options: You can use a safe tanning bed or oral vitamin D3.

vitamin D metabolism


Lack of vitamin D will leave you vulnerable to a number
of chronic diseases, including:

  • Sun Exposure Safety
  • 16 types of internal cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Hypertension
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Psoriasis
  • Ricketts
  • Schizophrenia
  • Tuberculosis and,
  • Myopathy

The fear regarding sun exposure, combined with the fact that many people now work indoors, has contributed to a silent epidemic of vitamin D deficiency.

Sunshine’s gifts extend well beyond vitamin D production. As discussed in the featured article by Sayer Ji,3 five of the many noteworthy properties of sunlight include:

  • Pain-killing (analgesic) properties
  • Increased subcutaneous fat metabolism
  • Regulation of human lifespan (solar cycles appear to be able to directly affect the human genome, thereby influencing lifespan)
  • Daytime sun exposure improves evening alertness
  • Conversion to metabolic energy (i.e. we may “ingest” energy directly from the sun like plants do)

When it comes to vitamin D production, the benefits are simply immeasurable. In fact, correcting a vitamin D deficiency may cut your risk of dying in half, according to an analysis of more than 10,000 individuals.

According to a January 2013 press release by Orthomolecular Medicine4, 3,600 medical papers with vitamin D in the title or abstract were published in 2012 alone, bringing the grand total to 33,800. Research to date shows vitamin D has far-reaching benefits to your physical and mental health.
