What can I do or eat to make my heart healthier?

Right now I have this regiment

a) 3 hawthorn berry capsules every day

b) 3 cloves of garlic every day

c) lemon juice every day

d) berries twice a week

e) 1 fruit or 2 veggies every day

f) 2 sources of tryptophan every day

g) stretching every day

h) 40 grams of cheese every day

i) coffee every day

Update:

Its home made lemon juice by squeezing lemons and not adding sugar. And the tryptophan comes from either eggs or chicken or sea food.

    Are the Hawthorne berry capsules whole fruit? If not, stop them.

    Drop the lemon juice. Drop all juices.

    Juice, like sugar, HFCS, honey and nectar, is high in fructose and fructose is no different to your liver than alcohol: poisonous over time.

    Drop everything from the last sentence.

    Are the tryptophan sources corn-fed? If so, change them to NOT corn-fed.

    Corn contains a few poisons. Fructose, which is fine in whole corn bc of the fiber, and fiber mitigates the fructose. The other i s/are branched chain amino acids. These are too few to be of concern in whole corn, but they accrue in corn-fed livestock and take up residence in the various protei n-related tissues.

    Fructose and alcohol are public enemy number two and number one, respectively, to the liver.

    Source(s): Should I fax/email my blood test results? I know what I am talking about bc I read "Fat Chance" by Dr. Robert Lustig, M.D.

    Fish oil or eating certain kinds of fish, such as salmon, several times a week, is recommended. Also, eat fruits and vegetables (4-5 helpings every day). Stay away from processed foods, especially things such as lunch meats and sugars. Don't eat too much red meat. Get some moderate exercise every day. Get enough sleep. Don't smoke or overindulge in alcohol. Drink several glasses of water daily. Don't let yourself get in a continual highly stressful situation. These are things I learned in cardiac rehab after having a heart attack.
