***Therapeutic Lifestyle Program for A Healthy Heart

Unhealthy diet is a major cause of heart diseases resulting in the buildup of cholesterol and fat in the inner wall of arteries that narrows the arteries, impedes the circulation and eventually causes heart attacks.

Cardiovascular care in America is spiraling out of control. We are now spending more than one hundred billion dollars a year for treatment and management of cardiovascular catastrophes (heart attack, stroke and diseases of the vascular system). This extraordinary amount of money is spent on victims of a disease that is largely preventable.

Over the past 50 years, health professionals have examined the association between physical activity and the risk for heart disease. The findings consistently reveal that people who are physically active have half the risk for heart attacks than people who are not active. Those studies show also that at least 30 minutes of moderate physical activity, such as brisk walking, on most days of the week, is sufficient to reduce the risk of heart attack. ˡ

Stress is a contributing factor to heart attacks. Having a little too much stress can put a lot of demand on the heart and its vessels by speeding up your heart rate. Stress can be controlled in simple ways like taking deep breaths or by finding a place to simply relax.

The study enrolled around 100,000 heart patients who previously experienced a heart attack and also took the aid of a minimum one NSAID drug after their attack. The results proved that the risk of death by any clinical complication was around 59% more after a year of heart attack and 63% more after a period of 5 years time in the patients. Also, the risk of dying from cardiovascular problem or experiencing a second heart attack was 30% higher after a year and 41% higher after 5 years.

This is another symptom of a cardiac condition or a heart attack. Do not ignore this symptom. If the pain comes from the chest and then slowly spread to the direction of the arms, you have to seek care immediately. The pain can spread to the armpits and to the arms too. Do not wait for any other signs as you could be in danger of getting a heart attack.

If you’ve never touched a cigarette or have quit smoking, congratulations! You are steps ahead of being healthier for longer in comparison to smokers. If you’ve experienced a heart attack and were a smoker previously, research suggests quitting can improve your mental health – aside from improving your heart and health overall, of course!
