I need to protect the my heart and brain from stroke. What have to do? Can you suggest medicine for that? Medication after starting is nonsense according to me. So please suggest. No sugar no pressure no cholesterol.

The causes for stroke and heart attack are same- bp, high sugar & cholesterol, smoke & pollution, bad fats, no exercise, stress and erratic lifestyle. Good to know that sugar and cholesterol are normal, get total lipid profile done as we need good fats also which are given by a spoon of desighee/ butter+ assorted nuts. Go for walks. Get ecg & halter test done, you can take a tablet of metprolol in low doses 25 mg /day in mornings, though it is medicine for high bp, but it protects the heart and brain from getting stroke. So no harm in taking this along with some vitamin supplements.
