KNOW MORE ABOUT YOUR HEART:
|Q: What causes cardiovascular diseases?
|Plaque buildup thickens and stiffens artery walls, which can inhibit blood flow through your arteries to your organs and tissues. Atherosclerosis is also the most common cause of cardiovascular disease. It can be caused by correctable problems, such as an unhealthy diet, lack of exercise, being overweight and smoking.|
|Q: What are the symptoms of a cardiac arrest?
|Usually, the first sign of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is loss of consciousness (fainting). At the same time, no heartbeat (or pulse) can be felt. Some people may have a racing heartbeat or feel dizzy or light-headed just before they faint. Within an hour before SCA, some people have chest pain, shortness of breath, nausea (feeling sick to the stomach), or vomiting.|
|Q: What are some healthy measures to have a healthy heart?
|1. Avoid tobacco altogether. The nicotine in cigarettes can constrict blood vessels, thus increasing blood pressure and forcing the heart to work harder.|
|2. Exercise toward a healthy heart. The key is to get enough exercise i.e. at least 30 to 60 minutes of medium-intensity exercise per day, or at least most days of the week.|
|3. Eat healthy. We all know that eating greasy, fatty, cholesterol-laden food is bad for your heart, whereas eating fiber-rich grains and fresh fruits and vegetables is good for your health. But there's more to helping your heart. Remember that it may take three to six months to see a reduction in cholesterol after changing your diet (although some people see results in as little as four weeks). Eating right is also important for maintaining a healthy weight — being overweight is one of the risk factors of heart disease.|
|4. Take your vitamins and supplements. Although not a substitute for eating right and exercising, taking supplements can help you maintain a healthy heart.|
|5. Go for regular checkups.Seeing your doctor for a physical on a regular basis can help ensure that any problem with your heart is diagnosed early, when it has the best chance of being treated and cured.You should get your blood pressure checked at least once every two years, and your cholesterol level at least once every five years. Of course, if you are at risk of developing heart disease — because of family history or a congenital heart abnormality — you should see your doctor as often as required.
Fight stress with healthy habits to have a happy heart.
