Taking Care of Your Heart

Heart Care – Simple guidelines to keep your heart healthy

Heart disease is a leading cause of death, especially in urban populations. Keeping cardiac care should be a priority for you and your family.

Quit smoking and get away from second-hand smoke

Smoking can cause permanent damage to the heart, lungs, and blood vessels. It can cause constriction and hardening of blood vessels over time and lead to atherosclerosis.

Maintain a healthy weight

This reduces your risk of other lifestyle diseases like diabetes, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure. These conditions put a strain on your heart health.

Eat Healthily

A heart-healthy diet includes high-fiber foods (whole grains and vegetables) and healthy fats (olive oil and fish). Be sure to cut out excess trans fats, sodium (salt), and added sugars. It is also advisable to eat more organic and whole foods and fewer processed meals and snacks.

Study your family medical history

This will allow you to take preventive measures to counteract your hereditary risk factors. When asked for, give your doctor more detailed information to help provide a more accurate diagnosis.

Limit alcohol intake

Drink alcohol in moderation.

Manage Stress

Meditation and deep breathing are acceptable practices to promote heart care. Other techniques that relieve stress, such as art, music, and dance, are also recommended for a healthy and happy heart.
