Hii, sometimes my left arm occur too much pain is it any heart diseases or its normal Can you tell me about it how and why it's happen.
Heart diseases are one of the major killers of this century; irrespective of age and sex. The rigors of modern life, coupled with the general populace aggressively moving towards a more sedentary lifestyle, it’s no surprise that cardiovascular disorders are on the rise.
However, Ayurveda has tips and guidelines to offer which could end up being just what one needs to keep diseases at bay, during such times. One can start with following the most basic steps and slowly take them forward once one easily slides in the regime. The best part; nature has no side effects.
- Relax: The first tenet of ‘any disease combat’ is to kill stress and along with that the causes which result in stress. Practice deep breathing and other relaxation techniques. Meditation and yoga can realign the flow of energy in the body, thus washing away worries.
- Cultivate positivity: As important as it is to fight stress, it’s equally important to cultivate positivity from every nook and cranny of this joyride called Life. Do things which give you happiness and contentment.
- Eat right: This is probably the most difficult way to inculcate given all the ‘junk on the go’ food centers opening in almost all crevices of the country. Eat a heart friendly diet. Start the day with fresh fruits and vegetables. Almonds are good friends to your heart; don’t forget to include them in your breakfast platter. You can also dress your veggies with fresh lime juice and make use of the turmeric and black pepper lying on your kitchen shelves and sprinkle generous amounts of them in your meals.
- Eat properly: DO not skip meals. Have three regular meals every day and try to cut down on the intra meal helpings that you often indulge in. Remember, it’s the casual helping of all those late night snacks that add to your adipose count, thus contributing to poor heart health. Have moderate portions of foods (Ayurveda says portion that can fit in to your two cupped palms is the right portion), but have dinner the lightest. This is because the metabolism rate dips at night. Thus eating heavy and sundry after sunset can be no good news to your ticker. Lime, salt and ginger can improve digestion. A glass of lassi during your midday meal can further help with matters of the heart.
- Exercise never has and never will fall out of fashion: Exercise regularly. It does not matter what the intensity of exercises is; what ticks over here is regularity. Light cardio exercises such as swift walking or swimming can do all that your heart would need at this point in time. What cardio exercises also do is that they reboot your system; so that the next morning, your metabolism is at its zenith and circulation, the best. Pranayam and meditation twice a day is good for Heart.
- Sleep right: It was no bluff when your mum would ask you to go to bed at the right time. Time and time again, research and studies have reinstated the fact that sleeping sufficient and sound, for about 7 hours every day holds the trick and the key to how your next sunrise could be. So much so, that right sleep is as important as the right diet when it comes to pampering the heart. Inculcate the correct sleeping habits- a silent, calm and cozy room will just be enough for the longest and peaceful of snooze. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ayurveda.

Here are Causes, Symptoms, Tests and Precautions of Coronary Artery Disease.
A big Hi to all the viewers. I am Dr. Hardik Thakkar an MB physician practicing in Mumbai. I would like to take this opportunity to talk to you about coronary artery disease.
As the word suggests coronary artery disease is a lifestyle disorder which affects the blood vessels of the heart. What happens in you is there are these cholesterol throbey blocks as we call them in layman’s term which deposit in the arteries and then they cause blockage to your micro circulation in the heart. So because of this what happens is the patient complains of pain in the chest, breathlessness, leg swelling, and sometimes even palpitations and a lot of diabetic patients may just get asymptomatic MIs which is these blocks will be there but they may not have any symptoms as I mentioned before.
Now this disease is dreadful because a lot of times these episodes come suddenly in the middle of the night and you may not have enough time to respond and a lot of these patients if they have a very significant amount of block like more than 90 or may be a 100 percent block. They may even die within hours of reaching the hospital. This is the gravity of the situation and hence one has to act very very fast if it all you get a chest pain.
But to begin with since we are talking about lifestyle modification we want to know what is in the lifestyle which leads to the coronary artery disease. As we all know a lot of people from the urban areas who are having sedentary who are not eating right. They are not sleeping right and they are not even working out so all this puts a huge oxidant stress and the wrong diet along with high fi diet which leads to cholesterol deposition and the plagues in the coronary arteries. So what should be done? I mean we need to start at a young age because it is not as we have to wait till 40 and start acting because this plague starts developing as early as 15 years of age. To begin with to prevent the coronary artery disease you have to start early, eat healthy right from your young age. Workout regularly and have an active lifestyle and avoid smoking and alcohol. Smoking is one of the major confounding factors which predisposes to lot of damage to endothelium of your arteries.
So leading a good lifestyle right from the beginning is very very important to you know take care of your coronary artery disease and diabetics as a matter of fact are at a very high risk of having coronary artery disease as compared to the general population. And I would also recommend the public I mean the regular people at least above 40 years to have a stresses done at least once a year along with your lipid profile sugar. This is just to make sure you are on a right track and you are not missing a coronary artery disease. I would like to talk a little bit in brief on this stress test which is you know a test which used to diagnose Angina.
So what we do we make a patient run on treadmill for ten minutes and we record ECGs of all the ten minutes along with the BP changes and if it all if a person has a hidden heart disease not reflected on his symptoms we pick it up and this is followed by the angiography. Once the angiography is done depending on the amount if blocks that are found we treat the patient either medically or with stents or by bypass. This is dictated by the number of arteries the location of plague and the extent of the block. So that’s about it for coronary artery disease at the moment.
