Here are the diet tips for healthy heart
Hi, I am Priyanka Shokeen. I am working as a dietician in Columbia Asia Hospital. Today I will give you some tips about Heart healthy diet. Although you know that eating certain foods can increase your heart illness risk, it’s tough to change your eating habit.
Here are the heart healthy diet tips for you-
Control your portion size. How much you eat is just as important as what you eat. Overloading your plate, taking second and eating until you feel stuck can lead to more calories, fat and cholesterol than what you eat. Eat more of fruits and vegetables. Fruits and vegetables are rich source of vitamins and minerals and they are very low in calories. Always have seasonal fruits and vegetables as they are comparatively good preservative. Preservatives are high in sodium and potassium and for a heart patient it is not recommended basically. Select whole grain, they are good source of fiber than other nutrients that play a role in regulating blood pressure. Always use whole wheat flour than the refined one which is maida as whole wheat flour contain good amount of fiber than maida. Always use wheat bread, then white bread because wheat grain contains a good amount of fiber than white bread. Always use oat meal, boiled corn instead of biscuits, popcorns and pancakes.
Always use those products which contain a good amount of fiber as those things are better for a cardiac patient. Choose low fat protein like lean meat, fish, poultry, all the dairy products because they contain less amount of saturated fat than the red meat ones because red mat contains a good amount of cholesterol. So always choose a low fat protein sources instead of red meat. Reduce the sodium in your diet as eating a lot of sodium can contribute to high blood pressure, a risk for cardiovascular disease. So always use herbs and spice instead of table salt, canned soup, prepared soup, soya sauce. Use salt substitutes and herbs and spices. Few of the vegetables and fruits are also high in sodium, so always avoid them. Limit unhealthy fat and cholesterol. Limiting how much saturated fat you eat is important to reduce your blood cholesterol and lower the risk of coronary artery disease. A high blood cholesterol level can lead to building up of plaque in your arteries called arthrosclerosis which can increase your heart attack risk and stroke.

Heel pain is a very common foot complaint and may involve injury to the bone, fat pad, ligaments, tendons or muscles. Heel pain can also be referred by a pinched nerve in your lower back.
It is important to have your heel pain thoroughly assessed to ensure an accurate diagnosis and subsequent treatment.
Anyone can suffer from heel pain, but certain groups seem to be at increased risk, including:
Middle aged men and women
Active people eg running sports
People who are very overweight
Children aged between 8 and 13 years
People who stand for long periods of time.
Common sources of heel pain
Achilles tendon rupture
Achilles tendonitis / tendinitis
High ankle sprain

Common causes of heel pain?
Some of the many causes of heel pain can include:

Heel pain treatment
Most heel pain is caused by a combination of poor biomechanics, or muscle weakness or tightness. The good news is that heel pain can be effectively managed once the cause is identified.
Most heel pain can be successfully treated via:
Pain and pressure relief techniques
Biomechanical correction eg orthotics, taping, foot posture exercises
Muscle stretches and massage
Lower limb muscle strengthening
Proprioceptive and balance exercises to stimulate your foot intrinsic muscles.
If you feel that your footwear or sports training schedule are potentially causing your heel pain, then we recommend that you seek the advice of a sports physiotherapist, podiatrist or trained footwear specialist (not just a shop assistant) to see if your shoe is a match for your foot; or discuss your training regime to see if you are doing too much.
Heel pain and injury are extremely common. With accurate assessment and early treatment most heel pain injuries respond extremely quickly to physiotherapy allowing you to quickly resume pain-free and normal activities of daily living.
Please ask you physiotherapist for their professional treatment advice.
