Heart Disease is one of the most widespread causes of death in the United States and one of the most preventable diseases. Dr. Anju Mathur of Angel Longevity Medical Center offers an Alternative Functional Medical approach to treating and preventing cardiovascular disease to patients in the Los Angeles San Fernando Valley area of Studio City California.

Heart disease can refer to a number of heart conditions, which may include angina, arrhythmias, congestive heart failure, and coronary artery disease.


Angina is pain in chest due to reduced blood flow through the arteries and weakening of the heart, and there are four types of angina. The first is chronic angina, and it occurs with physical exertion and stress. The second type is unstable angina, which can happen at rest or even while sleeping. Variant angina happens without warning, and it occurs with a spasm or tightening of the coronary artery. Microvascular angina is more severe, lasts longer, and occurs in the arterial blood vessels. These types of angina can be helped with certain treatment protocols.


A heart arrhythmia can be something a person is born with, or it can occur later in life. Some arrhythmia’s are benign, and others may be dangerous. The most common arrhythmias include bradycardia, which is a slower heart rate or tachycardia, which is a faster heart rate. These two types of arrhythmia’s may be benign; however, some supraventricular arrhythmia’s can be life threatening. Supraventricular tachycardia is characterized with any irregular heartbeat that occurs above the ventricles. Two types of SVT include atrial fibrillation and an atrial flutter. An atrial flutter occurs when a large number of faster heartbeats occur, and then the heart rate returns to normal, which can be dangerous. Atrial fibrillation occurs when the atrium beats rapidly, which is more common in older people and those that have high blood pressure or high cholesterol.

Coronary Artery Disease

The most common heart condition in the United States is coronary artery disease (CAD), which consists of plaque and cholesterol build-up in the arteries, resulting in a narrowing of the arteries and reduced blood flow. CAD can lead to heart failure because the heart can’t pump blood normally, and arrhythmia, which is an irregular heartbeat. The first sign of CAD is usually a heart attack, which occurs when plaque totally blocks blood flow of an artery in the heart, or a plaque deposit breaks off and blocks a coronary artery.

A physician can determine a person’s risk for CAD by checking blood pressure, cholesterol levels, blood glucose, and asking about family history of heart disease. Doctors can also perform tests like an EKG, stress test, and chest x-rays to determine if a patient has CAD. Unfortunately, the first sign of CAD for most is a heart attack, but there are other symptoms of CAD that may also be signs of an impending heart attack.

Dangerous symptoms that can be a sign of an impending heart attack may include:

  • Pain or Discomfort in the Neck, Jaw, or Back
  • Feeling Weak or Faint
  • Chest Pain or Tightness
  • Pain in the Arms, Shoulders, or Upper Body
  • Nausea and Vomiting
  • Anxiety
  • Sweating
  • Stomach Pain
  • Shortness of Breath

Los Angeles Heart Disease specialist, Dr. Mathur is an expert in the isolation and treatment of the risk factors related to cardiovascular disease. In Dr. Anju Mathur’s Back to Wellness Program, one of her treatment protocols may include Chelation Therapy, which is known to have great success in improving heart disease because it removes heavy metal toxicity and can prevent calcification of the arteries. Another beneficial therapy may be Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, which supplements deficient hormones. This therapy can potentially prevent heart disease because certain hormones allow blood to flow smoothly through the arteries and veins. Phospholipid Exchange Therapy may also reduce the risk for heart disease because it can remove toxins at a cellular level, which can help detoxify the blood and reduce arterial build up of plaques. Many patients have successfully used these therapies in the treatment and prevention of heart disease.
