Heart Attack Prevention - Homeopathy

BHMS
Homeopath,
Heart Attack Prevention - Homeopathy
the heart is the motor that keeps the blood in motion throughoutall the blood vessels in the body. In order, for the heart muscle to pump properly, it needs to be nourished by coronary blood vessels. Any disease or blockage of the coronary arteries can deprive the heart muscle with the necessary oxygen and blood it needs for proper function.

A heart attack, medically known as myocardial infarction.

The most typical symptom of a heart attack is chest pain (angina pectoris) that may radiate to the left arm, neck, and jaw. Other symptoms may include shortness of breath, heat in the chest, anxiety, light headedness, or lossof consciousness.

The major risks factors for a heart attack are diabetes, lack of exercise, high blood pressure, sedentary lifestyle, oldage, hypercholesterolemia, obesity, smoking, a high-sodiumdiet, and genetic predisposition.

In january, you may have noticed tv commercials addressingheartattack prevention. This is because most heart attacks occur during the month of february.

There are five tests that can detect a heart attack:
Electrocardiogram (ecg)
Coronary angiography
Exercise stress test
Nuclear scan
Blood test

Homeopathy in practice
The homeopathic goal is to lower high blood pressure and cholesterol to desired levels to prevent a heart attack.

Heart attack prevention diet
Restrict sodium intake.
Avoid foods high in trans fatty acids and saturated fats.
Eat a well-balanced, high-fiber diet based on whole grains, legumes, fruits, and vegetables.
Eliminate the consumption of refined foods.
Avoid milk, butter, margarine, vegetable shortening, cheese, red meat, and chicken skin. They cause bloodclogging.
Blueberries have antioxidant properties. Add them to your morning cereals.
Eat fish, especially salmon and mackerel, three times a week.
Garlic helps reduce high blood pressure and cholesterol. Take a tiny piece of garlic and crush it with a knife. Swallowwith a glass of water.
Ginger helps maintain healthy cholesterol levels.
Have a glass of red wine with your meal, at dinner.
Lose weight, if you are overweight.
Avoid overeating and eating late.
Engage in 30 minutes of physical exercise.
Stop smoking.
Avoidstress.

I cannot sleep well disturbing some thing head ache dysentery and also something in my heart.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
I cannot sleep well disturbing some thing head ache dysentery and also something in my heart.
1. avoid caffeine found in coffee,tea , chocolate,cola,and some pain relievers.[four to six hours before bedtime.] 2. quiet, dark, and cool environment can help promote sound sleep. . [Use heavy curtains, or an eye mask to block light, and also keeping computers, TVs, and other work materials out of the room will help promote mental bonding between your bedroom and sleep] 3. Avoid stressful, stimulating activities like doing work, discussing emotional issues. Physically and psychologically stressful activities can cause the body to secrete the stress hormone cortisol, which is associated with increasing alertness.

How to reduce cholesterol without medication. Total cholesterol 233 mg/dl Ldl 162 Non Hdl 186.4 age 51 female.

BHMS
Homeopath,
How to reduce cholesterol without medication. Total cholesterol 233 mg/dl Ldl 162 Non Hdl 186.4 age 51 female.
Dear lybrate user, cholesterol is naturally produced inside the body of every living animal. Human beings are no exception to that. But when we take mutton, chicken, yellow part of a boiled egg, ghee, butter etc we intake cholesterol from external source. This extra cholesterol from external sources increase the total cholesterol content of human body. You should always keep your cholesterol level within normal limits as high cholesterol serves as a precursor to various cardiac diseases. Avoid the aforesaid food. Walk at least 1 hour in a day without any interval. Also you can take homoeopathic mother tincture fucus vesiculosus q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water.

Drinking more alcohol increases such dangers as alcoholism, high blood pressure, obesity, stroke, breast cancer, suicide and accidents.

A Nine Modifiable Risk Factors for Heart Attack

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
The majority of known risk factors for heart attack disease are modifiable by specific preventive measures.

Nine potentially modifiable factors include smoking, dyslipidemia, hypertension, diabetes, abdominal obesity, psychosocial factors, regular alcohol consumption, lack of adequate fruits and vegetables in diet and sedentary lifestyle. These account for over 90 percent of the population–attributable risk of a first heart attack.

In addition, aspirin is recommended for primary prevention of heart disease for men and women whose 10–year risk of a first heart attack event is 6 percent or greater.

Smoking cessation reduces the risk of both heart attack and stroke. One year after quitting, the risk of heart attack and death from heart disease is reduced by one-half, and after several years it begins to approach that of nonsmokers.

A number of observational studies have shown a strong inverse relationship between leisure time activity and decreased risks of CVD. The Heart Care Foundation of India recommends walking 80 minutes in a day and with a speed of 80 steps per minute.

Hello sir, I am 59 year old male have undergone angioplasty twice once in 2008 n the other one month back. Is there any medicine in Ayurveda which can clear the blocks, as the old 2008 one is now blocked by 50%

50% block may not be corrected but you can give a chance collateral blood vesselsto open up,so far these lying in heart but doing nothing and there are plenty of collateral blood vessels. it is equated to nature doing a bypass surgery giving its own vessels to circulate more blood to the heart by its own vessels instead of grafted vessels. some people do claim about opening up of the blocked vessels by alternate therapies but there are no proofs, no studies carried so far. if sugar levels are controlled you can have all of these or any of these lemon juice plus spoon of honey with warm water on empty stomach every morning & rest of the day. apple cider vinegar diluted with water/juice. pomegranade fruit or juice or dry seeds boiled in water ,a concoction made and a cup taken every day. exercise like walkkng does open up vessels of entire body. massage with machine or with oil does improve blood circulation including heart. better is blood circulation ,more vessels lying low get a chance to open up. good luck.
