5 Symptoms That Indicate Your Heart Is in Trouble!

5 Symptoms That Indicate Your Heart Is in Trouble!

Your heart gives you warning signs before the onset of a major problem. You may not even know that you are at risk of one or more heart diseases if you fail to notice these small signs that your heart sends out. Even a minor symptom, like chest pain, can indicate that your heart may be in trouble. While there could be many causal factors for a heart condition, here some symptoms, which are possible indications of a heart disease and should not be ignored in any case.

1. Chest pain or discomfort - This symptom is the most common one, which indicates that your heart is not healthy. It usually comes in the form of a pain, pressure or tightness in the chest and may happen due to a blocked artery. This may be an early warning sign of a heart attack and you should seek professional advice before it turns into a major problem.

2. Excessive sweating - If you often sweat without any valid reason, it might be a sign to be concerned for. The sweating experienced will feel more like the one that arises due to stress rather than common perspiration experienced due to any vigorous physical activity.

3. Difficulty in breathing - Shortness of breath is an indication that you are at high risk of getting a heart attack. The symptom includes having difficulty in breathing and feels similar to the panting experienced after a long run.

4. Nausea and frequent stomach problems - If you experience nausea, heartburn, indigestion or abdominal pain frequently, it may be the result of an unhealthy heart. Of course, these signs may be due to other diseases as well, but if you experience any of the other symptoms of heart problems too, it's highly probable that your heart is in trouble.

5. Exhaustion - If you fall into the high-risk zone of being a potential heart patient, you may feel exhausted after doing some simple chores, which didn't tire you earlier. Common examples may be climbing the stairs or carrying something from your doorstep inside the house to name a few.

I am 49 m. Thyroid + cholesterol. Dr. Advised for 37.5 mg thyronorm + 20 mg atrovastatin daily. I wanted to have some ayurvedic medicine. Please advise.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
How far ayurveda can help is doubtful and you may taking risk. Howeverr you have to check regularly and make sure you get good control.See the ayurveda line of treating,but you have to very careful before stopping allopathy and completely changing to this. Any further doubts in health, can be asked privately. Following are the Ayurvedic measures to control and maintain optimum cholesterol levels: Drink 6 to 8 glasses of water daily. Start your day with fresh fruits and grains such as oats that are high in soluble fiber. Minimize consumption of animal products including dairy products. This is because animal foods are high in saturated fatty acids and dietary cholesterol. Consume fish viz salmon, sardine and tuna as well as oysters, clams and mussels. These help lower LDL and improve HDL. Restrict consumption of Omega-6 rich oils such as corn oil and safflower oil. Instead, use olive oil, sesame oil and rapeseed oil that have ‘good fat’. Eat a lot of anti-oxidant foods such as strawberries, apples, nuts, carrots, broccoli and spinach. Use turmeric and curry leaves when cooking dishes. They have cholesterol lowering properties. Ayurvedic remedies to fight cholesterol: 1. Boil water with 2 tsp coriander seed. Strain and drink this water twice daily. It helps reduce cholesterol, flushes out toxins, and improves digestion. 2. Guggulu (Commiphora mukul) is effective in lowering cholesterol. Buy it from any reputed Ayurvedic store and use it as per instructions on the container. 3. Grill 1 or 2 small cloves of garlic and take it daily with your main meal. 4. Take 1 to 2 capsules per day of Arjun (Terminalia arjuna) extract available in a capsule form. Arjun is rich in co-enzyme Q-10 (CoQ10) that helps lower LDL cholesterol and enhances HDL recovery. Keep in personal touch.

What is the cause of high cholesterol in our body and cause heart related problems.
If we eat oily food and have a sedentary life style than our low density lipoprotein cholestrol increases in the blood which forms a thrombus along the walls of the arteries and which gives us problem after a long time.
