Why does people get heart attack.

B.H.M.S., Senior Homeopath Consultant
Homeopath,
Why does people get heart attack.
A heart attack happens if the flow of oxygen-rich blood to a section of heart muscle suddenly becomes blocked and the heart can't get oxygen. Most heart attacks occur as a result of coronary heart disease (chd). Chd is a condition in which a waxy substance called plaque builds up inside of the coronary arteries.

When I run my heart beat became fast why it happen so pls tell me.

BAMS
General Physician,
When I run my heart beat became  fast why it happen so pls tell me.
When you run or do any exercises, your muscles starts acting (contraction and relaxation) and there is demand for more blood supply to the muscles. To meet the demands the heart starts pumping more blood which results in increased heart rate.

some families have cholesterol. others have high cholesterol due to wrong eating habits by taking more fats. you can reduce by taking less of bad fats like street food , packed foods but do take a spoon of good fats like pure ghee/butter and a katori of assorted nuts to give you good fats and proteins. drink fresh lemon juice plus spoon of honey with warm water everyday on empty stomach. you can have lemon juice during the day also. apple cider vinegar does reduce cholesterol. dilute it with water or juice. some people claim that pomegranate juice or fruit does help reduce cholesterol.other fruits with fiber also absorb cholesterol and reduce it. no juices -real or synthetic. eat fresh and natural. try all of the above as none has any side effects but do not take medicines to lower cholesterol.

High triglycerides and cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Change life style .do meditation,yoga, Go walk daily, do any one physically activity daily i.e.play any game., Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress,take plenty of water in day time. And 1 glass of water before bed at night. use flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain. Garlic,. Cod liver oil. Take anti cholesterol medicines . Cap. Ecosprin gold-10 at night daily. take medicines for diabetes also.

Alternative Medicine Cures For Hypertension

MBBS, Ph.D. Alternative medicine
Alternative Medicine Specialist, Patiala
Alternative Medicine Cures For Hypertension

What is hypertension?

Blood pressure is defined as the measure of force which is exerted by the arterial blood on the arterial blood vessels. Damage can occur if the pressure is constantly high over time. This results in the stretching of the arterial walls beyond their threshold and the tissues of the arteries get damaged. Blood pressure is recorded as a ratio of two numbers. The higher number represents the systolic pressure (used to measure the pressure in the ventricles when it relaxes) and the lower one is the measure for diastolic pressure (used to measure the pressure during ventricular relaxation). Going by medical guidelines, you are diagnosed with hypertension if your blood pressure goes over 140 over 90 mmHg. Not treating hypertension over a long span of time can lead to end-organ damage and ultimately, death.

Other problems associated with high blood pressure are-

  1. Kidney disease
  2. Heart attack
  3. Loss of vision
  4. Stroke
  5. Diabetes
  6. Heart failure
  7. Metabolic syndrome

Alternative medicines that can help cure hypertension

  1. BASIL: Basil is a herb that when incorporated in food can make it delicious. It can be added to a variety of food items and cuisines. It can also help lower high blood pressure levels. This is enough reason to add a dash of basil leaves to your food when you cook.
  2. CINNAMON: Cinnamon is again used as a seasoning in a lot of dishes and there is not much effort one has to take in order to incorporate it into their regular diet. The consumption of cinnamon is seen to be beneficial, especially in people with hypertension. You can make an effort to incorporate more cinnamon in your diet by sprinkling some in your oatmeal, breakfast cereal or coffee.
  3. CARDAMOM: This seasoning is very common in India, most prominently in the south Indian states. Studies investigating the effects of cardamom have shown that incorporating cardamom in your food for several months has positive effects on the blood pressure by reducing it. You can add cardamom in the form of seeds or powder in your soups and stews. Cardamom goes well if sprinkled on baked goods as well. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor.

Why are we need bp checkup?

PGDEMS, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda,
The more of the diseases we are facing today are because of our sedentary lifestyle & unhealthy eating habits. Weight gain/ diabetes/ b. P. & many other diseases are lifestyle disease/ disorders. So there is an old saying - prevention is always better than cure. So we should keep ourselves checked at a regular intervals, so that if there is any starting of disease we can try to cure it at the earlier stages.
