Healthy Heart Tips

In one of the previous articles I’ve spoken about foods one must eat as a preventive measure to heart issues since it isn’t uncommon to have at least one heart patient in every family, whether nuclear or extended, just think about it.

Let’s see the difference between a heart attack and cardiac arrest, yet again. In a heart attack, the body experiences a very sudden interruption in the blood supply to part of the heart muscle, it doesn’t stop pumping blood and supplying to the body, but there is a difficult interruption that causes chest pain. The person still breathes nonetheless and remains in a conscious state. A heart attack could easily escalate into a cardiac arrest if it isn’t given immediate attention.

Whereas in a cardiac arrest, the heart altogether stops pumping blood and supplying to the body, here the person either stops breathing or breathes very abnormally with the greatest difficulty and falls unconscious on the spot. If this isn’t immediately treated by CPR, it could lead to the death of a person within minutes.

Once you’re a heart patient, life is never the same again, fun is never the same again and your favourite food is most likely never the same again unless you’re willing to risk your life for it, it’s rather sad that this happens but once you’re there, there’s a lot little you can do about it. However, if you’re on the other side that hasn’t been affected so far, you still have the power to control things and keep being on this side of it. I’ll give you some tips to keep your heart healthy:

  • Eat heart healthy foods: You could refer to my article on it for more information, those foods comprise of Kale leaves, Garlic, a glass of Red wine, Oranges, 70% Dark Stevia chocolates, Almonds, Pomegranates etc.
  • Quit Smoking: Yes I know you hear it all the time but you can’t let go of that cigarette but you need to put your strong will to use or do whatever it takes to quit because when you come to think of it, it’s not just your heart at risk.
  • Move yourself: Even thirty minutes of brisk walking a day helps if you’re too busy in life to care about your health. Make it a point to do it at least five days a week.
  • Indulge in healthy eating: Add more fibres and foods I’ve mentioned above, reduce fat from your food, absolutely quit sugar and artificial sweeteners and switch to zero calorie natural Stevia sweeteners instead.
  • Keep your weight in control: Healthy eating and exercise should keep your weight in control otherwise you’re at a higher risk of heart problems.
  • Read nutritional values: Start making it a point to read the nutritional values behind packed food products and make sure the sugar content is minimal and so are saturated fats.
  • Drink less: Apart from that one glass of red wine I mentioned, you need to start drinking lesser and only on occasions instead of regularly.
