Exercise is one of the best things one can do for themselves to stay fit and healthy. Regular exercise will always be a great idea for the normal functioning of the body.
Exercises play a vital role in controlling or minimizing heart issues. They greatly help in maintaining good blood circulation. They are also helpful in maintaining blood pressure, cholesterol, weight, and increasing energy levels.
Exercises do help to prevent heart disease, but it is important to do right exercises in right amount.
How Often and How Long Should One Exercise?
If the person is not active, 20 to 30 minutes of Aerobic session for at least four times a week is good enough. However, the more the person can do, the better the result will be.
If a person is already physically active, more exercise time is recommended, to really tone the body.
The amount of exercise also depends upon stamina of the particular person.

Why Yoga? A promising way to prevent Heart Disease
- According to Cunningham, who has taught Yoga for 40 years, it can be used as a preventive measure for heart diseases.
- Yoga can help improve respiratory function, increase heart rate, boost circulation, lower blood pressure, increase lung capacity, and muscle tone.
- Yoga can also be beneficial for those who have faced Heart attack or Cardiac arrest. Most patients go through depression after Bypass surgery; Yoga also helps to get rid of depression and anxiety. It also helps in reducing emotional stress.
- Some of the effective Yoga Postures are Boat Pose (Paripurna Navasana), Extended Triangle Pose (utthita trikona), Feathered Peacock Pose (pinca mayura), Handstand (adho mukha vrksasana), Hero Pose (veer-AHS-anna), Low Lunge, Supported Headstand (salamba alamba sirsa), and many more.
- Yoga and other exercises help in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. However, one should always consult a trainer or doctor before doing these exercises. Also, these exercises should always be accompanied by a healthy diet, to really make these exercises effective. Eating a burger after a Yoga session is never going to be a good idea.

Just wanted to know is it possible to have a highly varying triglyceride value for a person with a stable vegetarian food habit for years. The blood sample were taken in the morning after 12 hours of fasting. The reason for asking this is that the triglyceride value is showing double within a week between 1st and 2nd sample test. It is 325 & 154 for the 1st and 2nd test respectively.
Heart diseases are very common nowadays and can affect individuals of any age. Heart diseases can be fatal and even result in death if the affected person is not diagnosed at the right time. Below are some tests that one must conduct regularly to take care of one's heart.
- Lipid Tests - Lipid tests are conducted to check if there are any kind of risks related to the lipids of a person's body. Lipid tests help to screen different problems related to cholesterol levels and triglycerides which are responsible for different cardiovascular problems. It can also help to detect any kind of genetic disorder which results in cardiovascular diseases that may affect the heart in a serious way.
Cardiac Risk Marker Profile Test: The cardiac risk marker profile test is known as a group of health tests that are required to be performed to ascertain if someone has a chance of suffering from cardiovascular diseases like heart attack or heart stroke.
Echocardiogram - This is an ultrasound test of heart which checks whether there is any problem with the heart valves and blood chambers. Through this process, the doctor will be also able to understand how strongly the heart is pumping blood to your body. It is conducted with the help of probe on the chest or can also be inserted through the oesophagus.
- Electrocardiogram - This is a very common test, which a person with a weak heart can undergo. Small sticky dots and wires are attached to the person's chest, arms and legs which enables the doctor to check if there are any abnormalities in or around your heart.
- Stress Echocardiogram - Significant stress levels can also be harmful to your heart. In this test, a radioactive substance is inserted into the bloodstream and in return, it echoes back an ultrasound which helps to detect how strongly the heart is beating or if there is any blockage in the valves.
Along with regular testing of the heart, it is important to conduct a full body health checkup at least once a year to get tested for liver function, kidney function and thyroid function.

I was advised to take concor 2.5 and losacar 50 mg as my diastole was around 90-95 while systole was 120-30. That was 12 years ago. I am 45 now, 98 Kgs. (5 feet, 10 inches) and my B.P is 125/78 while sitting or 119/70 while lying down. Should I continue with this as I am worried about the long term side effects of this medicine. They recently found that I had slightly fatty liver (don't drink alcohol at all). The ultrasound revealed that it's in very very nascent stage though. Was advised to lose weight, eat lesser and do some exercises. I am doing as much as I can. Please advise a safer medicine.

Please give yourself valuable 2min and read this:-
（1）let’s say it’s 8.15 pm and you’re going home (alone of course) after an unusually hard day on the job.
（2）you’re really tired, upset and frustrated.
（3）suddenly you start experiencing severe pain in your chest that starts to drag out into your arm and up in to your jaw. You are only about five km from the hospital nearest your home.
（4）unfortunately you don’t know if you’ll be able to make it that far.
（5）you have been trained in cpr, but the guy that taught the course did not tell you how to perform it on yourself.
（6）how to survive a heart attack when alone?
Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack without help, the person whose heart is beating improperly and who begins to feel faint, has only about 10 seconds left before losing consciousness.
（7）however, these victims can help themselves by coughing repeatedly and very vigorously. A deep breath should be taken before each cough, and the cough must be deep and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep inside the chest.
A breath and a cough must be repeated about every two seconds without let-up until help arrives, or until the heart is felt to be beating normally again.
（8）deep breaths get oxygen into the lungs and coughing movements squeeze the heart and keep the blood circulating.
