Patient discussion about clearing

Q. Is there something out there to clear blockish in the heart? I often face blockish in my heart which I feel very pain and difficult to breathe. Is there something out there to clear blockish in the heart?

A. I know we walk around this world feeling good and healthy but really don't know the truth of what is going on in our body. I want to know is there something out there like a pill or whatever to clear up your clogged arteries if that was the problem, I don't know why but I have this thing in my head that I have some blockage I did get checked and everything is good. But you know how some people think of something too much and untimately end up in worry. No! There are prescription blood thinners, etc, that are for people with much clogged arteries, who are at very high risk of stroke. But they are dangerous - they can cause severe bruising, uncontrolled bleeding, and uncontrolled unnoticed internal bleeding from the slightest trauma! The risk is simply not worth it. Of course, watch your cholesterol intake.

Q. How long will our leaders continue sanction this clearly immoral lifestyle? I did research on hetro-sexual lifestyle and found many interesting facts. I do not approve that and we all know the HERETO-sexual lifestyle leads to alcoholism, drug addiction, STDs including AIDS, fatherless children, poverty and spousal abuse. How long will our leaders continue to sanction this clearly immoral lifestyle? I am getting sick on this and I think our future generations would suffer a lot. I have been doing this for quite a while but I think it is time for me to garner some feedback on the issue. Well if you people in this forum have some social responsibilities please share your views.
