The heart will surely rebuild to its original slowly and slowly after quitting smoking and recovery will depend upon the intensity of impact smoking had on your heart.Myself is a homoeopath and there are certain very effective homoeopathic medicines which will help you overcome your withdrawl symptoms and also lessens the after effects.Consult me

Everything You Need To Know About Heart Pacemaker

Everything You Need To Know About Heart Pacemaker

If you had to choose between living a life of restrictions and a life of freedom, you'd choose the latter right? This is a decision most patients have to take when diagnosed with heart disease. However, thanks to medical advancements such as the pacemaker, they get to choose a life of freedom too, just like you.

In simple terms, a pacemaker is a tiny device helps people with irregular heart rhythms to quite effectively, maintain the 'pace' of their normal lifestyle. It is best suited for patients suffering from arrhythmias or the abnormal beating of the heart and heart block as well. As a matter of fact, for many people who have had a pacemaker fitted, things such as fainting, dizziness and other undesirable symptoms which have been known to be part and parcel of arrhythmias have become a thing of the past.

How it Works?

A pacemaker provides for the regular beating of the heart by providing electrical impulses which have a low intensity to the heart so as to induce it to beat in a normal manner. It is a small device which is composed of a battery whose energy works to power a computerized generator and a small albeit intricate system of wires attached to sensors, which are alternatively known as electrodes which observe the functioning of the heart.

For those who are planning to have a pacemaker implanted, it would be reassuring to know that there is a lot of due diligence which is a part of installing a pacemaker. The minor surgery which is required for it to be installed is completed in the span of a few hours.

It is to be noted that even after the installation is complete, a patient will have a day or so spent under the careful and watchful observation of the doctor and nurses so as to make sure that the pacemaker is functioning all but perfectly.

Post Op. Care:

There is a short period of recovery following which a person can resume his or her normal activities. But just as the pacemaker goes a long way in making its wearer's life easier, the wearer has a few responsibilities but there needs to be minimal concern with respect to its maintenance.

The batteries of pacemakers last about six to seven years, and for some pacemakers which are not that active, the battery need not be replaced till about fifteen years after the date of implantation.

Another precaution patients with patients need to take is that they stay out of zones of high magnetic energy, especially for sustained periods.

Besides these minor safety measures there are tremendous benefits of installing a pacemaker. It is truly life changing in every sense of the term. It helps you live life with a dose of renewed vigour, allowing you to indulge without regret!

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Managing Hypertension With Healthy Habits

Here are some changes that can offer huge improvements in your high blood pressure levels:

Change your diet.

Studies have found that a low-salt (low-sodium) diet has a big benefit when it comes to lowering hypertension. Cutting back on high-sodium foods and salt at mealtimes is recommended for people with high blood pressure ? keep your daily salt consumption to less than 2,300 milligrams of salt, about equal to one teaspoon.

Get active.

Exercise is another key to management of hypertension ? 30 minutes of moderate exercise most days of the week can really boost heart health.
Lower stress. Keeping stress under control with regular relaxation has been found to help lower high blood pressure. Allow yourself some time each day to unwind and enjoy life.

Cut out tobacco and reduce alcohol consumption.

Tobacco use and drinking excessive amounts of alcohol can contribute to high blood pressure, studies have found. If you enjoy an occasional drink, stick to a maximum of one (for women) or two (for men) drinks per day, and no tobacco.

Get to a healthy body weight.

Obesity ? even being overweight ? is a major contributor to high blood pressure. So for better management of hypertension, lose weight. The goal is a body mass index, or BMI, of between 18 and 24.9. And all of those other lifestyle changes, like a healthy diet and regular exercise, will help you achieve it.

Monitor medication usage.

If you take many medications, it's a good idea to review them with your doctor to see if any of them could be contributing to your high blood pressure or interacting with your blood pressure medications. Decongestants and other cold medications, some antidepressants, steroids, and pain relievers like non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) can raise blood pressure, so ask your doctor about over-the-counter drugs and any other prescriptions if you're struggling to manage hypertension.

Be vigilant about watching your blood pressure levels.

You know you have high blood pressure, so stay on top of it. Always take your medications the way that your doctor recommends, and make sure that your blood pressure is monitored frequently.

The keys to getting healthy and lowering blood pressure are in your hands. You can reduce your risk for serious health problems by making these lifestyle changes. So what are you waiting for?

But after that it become a cycle of fear of death. I don't know how to get out of it. I had fear of death when I was around 10 but then I knew that it will happen after 60-70 years after but in now it feels like I am going to die everyday.

Tremors, feeling anxious or nervous, sense of panic, sweating, increased heartbeat, feeling of impending doom, stomach discomfort, dizziness etc are signs of anxiety. These can be debilitating. If the anxiety us overwhelming, consult a psychiatrist at the earliest. With the right medication and counseling, it is likely your symptoms will improve. Other than that, try yoga, deep breathing, meditation, moderate exercise, progressive muscular relaxation and guided meditation.

Dietary and other lifestyle changes can help you control and prevent high blood pressure. Eating a diet that is rich in whole grains, fruits, vegetables and low-fat dairy products and skimps on saturated fat and cholesterol can lower your blood pressure by up to 14 mm hg. This eating plan is known as the dietary approaches to stop hypertension (dash) diet. Get plenty of potassium, which can help prevent and control high blood pressure. Eat less saturated fat and total fat. If you're overweight, losing even 3 kgs can lower your blood pressure. Strive for at least 30 minutes of physical activity a day. I being a both a registered dietitian (rd) and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their problems through a holistic approach using customized therapeutic diet and medications. I will also suggest home remedies. Do reply back for private consultation for rx.
