Hello, Normal heart beat counts 60-100 bpm. You need to monitor your weight, first. Go for meditation to reduce your stress inorder to nourish your body conditioning the heart reducing depression & anxiety.

I have been having palpitations for nearly 5-6 months. I did an echo, TMT, ECG and 24 hour holter monitor. All results were normal. However, echo showed trivial mitral regurgitation and trivial tricuspid regurgitation. Avg heart rate was 90bpm in the holter monitor result. I often get palpitations after eating lunch or dinner. I am also easily startled when a phone rings etc. Overall I've been having some anxiety issues for past 6 months. I feel tensed and on the edge for most part of the day. I had got married and moved countries and had to quit my job during this time. So I was at home for most part of the day without much to do. I also suffer from upper body pain - shoulder and front chest. Sometimes this in muscular pain and some other times I feel it's internal pain due to bloating or gas whenever I breathe. I also did a chest X Ray and it was normal. I am on supplements for vitamin D insufficiency. Please advise how to deal with these issues. Any follow up for regurgitation?

I would suggest try alternative - Non Medicinal therapies like Mindfulness, Meditation, Yoga etc. Many of the physical symptoms may be due to mind and life related issues. There are lot of free online courses on Happiness, Mindfulness etc and they are very helpful in settling the turbulence in our lives. Where medicine does not work, your mindpower may become the best medicine.

During running or hard working it is very common to increase your heart beat, if it's much more in resting also then you need treatment, if you have palpitations in slight work then it could be due cardiac cause or due to thyroid, you need to visit a doctor, don't do self medication.

You can definitely take badam, walnuts and figs (anjeer) but in moderate quantity. Like 5 - 8 badams, about 25 g of walnuts and 2- 3 pieces of dry anjeer. But what is most important is to have a very good control of sugar levels. If you inform me the fasting, pp sugar levels, hba1c and weight, height and level of exercise daily plus medication being taken I can guide better.

Alcohol or smoking show their effects on Which age. How our chest can be cure after so much smoking.Please tell sir.

Alcohol or smoking show their effects on Which age. How our chest can be cure after so much smoking.Please tell sir.
Alcohol and smoking do harm to everyone at any age. When you smoke you damage your lungs: when you smoke more you damage your lungs more: and if you smoke less you damage your lungs no less – well may be a little less. Your desire to smoke less is most welcome but it is not enough. You must quit your smoking completely and you must do it now, seriously. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. But don’t fool yourself any smoking is harmful, and you need to seriously get on with quitting it completely and immediately.

I am 61 years old and had angioplasty about 10 years back. Recently I came to know that sunflower oil is not good for lipid profile contrary to the popular belief. Then which are relatively better edible oils for heart patients.

The reason is only sunflower oil is not enough. You won't get various fatty acids if you use single variety of even a good oil. Rotational use of different oils like corn, rice bran, olive, even ground nut and sun flower is good for health. But avoid cotton seed oil.
