Strengthen Your Heart for a Long and Happy Life!

Cardiovascular diseases in the form of arrhythmias, congestive heart failure, atherosclerosis and even hemorrhage are growing at a tremendous rate and are the cause of at least 50% of deaths worldwide.

The cause for concern is that the figure of heart attacks and related deaths is on the rise but the number of people conscious of their health and taking preventive measures is not growing at the same rate.

We all are struggling for a better means of living, improving our standards, providing for our necessities and so on. But do we ensure that we would be able to reap the fruits of the seeds sown. This would be done only if we live long enough and are healthy. Hence, at least half an hour should be dedicated daily only to ourselves, for our health and productive mind. Otherwise we would be running in a marathon without an end point. The following are some of the guidelines to maintain a healthy and fit heart.

a) Exercise regularly :- This should be done in such a manner that the heart rate is at a faster pace than normal and this faster pace should be maintained for 20 minutes. Brisk walking and jogging are two good methods of exercising where the body exerts to enhance its stress undertaking capacity. In general forty minutes of exercise for four times a week is a good exercise.

b) Diet :- Avoid refined flour and restrict carbohydrates and fats once you are 30 years. A good intake of fruits, dry fruits and vegetables would do wonders for your body. The minerals and vitamins used by the body are best sourced in nature. The best supplement for cardio-health is Omega 3 Fatty Acids. Another herb which is useful and has been quoted in various Ayurvedic scriptures is Terminalia Arjuna (Arjun Chhal).

c) Meditation : Yoga, prananyamas and meditation calms and focuses the mind and also avoids excitements and stresses. Hence a weekly practice of meditation would only benefit the heart and mind by controlling the volatility and maintaining a steady heart rate.

d) Regular blood tests : These are required to monitor the HDl and LDL levels in the blood. The LDL/HDL ration should be a maximum or 4 and any higher value is an indication of greater risk of heart diseases.

    I recently did a system restore on my computer and have yet to reload my antivirus software. Apparently somewhere along the process something called Antivi took over my computer and I can’t do anything, not even get to my task manager to end the program. Any advice?.

    I put a WordPress blog on my website a few days ago, and I was just curious about how it works. So I just want to know if all the posts are saved into a single file or if they are separate for each post. Then I also want to know where they can be found on my server. Thanks.

    Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.
