I suddenly feel pain in my heart, it occurs in every 2 months. Please suggest me what can I do to relief from this pain?
The sudden pains only in your age are not suggestive of any heart problem. For heart linked problems we must also keep other factors related to heart in our mind. It can be either a nervous or muscular pain and in your case the chances are of for a nervous pain as these pains are intermittent every 2 months. Homoeopathic medicine hypericum 30 (dr reckeweg) drink 5 drops in 1 spoon fresh water 3 times daily for 2 months.

Dear, To control & maintan BP normal these are best methods to follow:.• Do physical exercise like jogging, running or brisk walk for atleast 20-30 minutes. • Maintain your cholesterol level to normal & eat least amount of butter, cream or fatty things. • Eat less amount of pickle, salt and fast food as they contain high sodium levels. • Avoid drinking alcohol and smoking. • Take less amount of caffine containing coffee, tea or cold drinks because caffine causes increase BP. • Drink 8 to 10 glass of water daily • Take 6 to 8 hrs of sleep daily. Do not take too much stress. • Do long breathing pranayams (Anulom- Vilom, Bhramari) daily for 10 - 15 minutes.

Mitral valve prolapse will need surgical intervention. I have not heard of any tablet of magnesium. Most of the greens have it, and every multivitamin tablet has this vital mineral and bananas is a good source besides giving potassium, another mineral good for heart and entire body.
