Heart keeps you alive. It strengthens your body organs by supplying oxygen and blood to each and every organ of the body. We should take care of our heart instead of ignoring our health issues. While messing up with our work, we do not get time to cook healthy food for us, which drags us to junky outlets such as MC Donald’s, KFC, DOMINOZ, and many more, which are posing a threat to health. Some other reasons, which deteriorate your health, are laziness and lack of exercise. All outdoor activities freshen you up and relieve your stress and also relax your heart, but our modern lifestyle has declined these activities. In modern times, there is a lot of work pressure that gives a greater workload on your heart. This is the time when you go for various heart treatments. But you yourself can take care of your heart by following different suggestions discussed below:
- Plant based diet for healthy heart – Plant based diet is very essential and effective in keeping your heart healthy. Plant based diet mostly includes fruits, vegetables, nuts, beans, whole grains, and also constitute some meat substitute like soy. You can enjoy your plant based diet without going completely vegetarian. There are many types of plant diet, but here I have mentioned some common diets such as:
i. Vegan: This diet does not consist of animal products such as meat, eggs, or dairy products.
ii. Lacto-vegetarian: This diet does not include meat or eggs, but include dairy products.
iii. Lacto-ovo-vegetarian: This diet includes eggs and dairy products but no meat.
Healthy vegetables and fruits give nourishment to your body. A healthy diet also includes food, which are cooked in less oil, ghee and butter because little is better than excess. Your diet chart must include the essential nutrients and enough calcium, iron zinc and protein. You can also adjust your diet chart on doctor recommendations.
- Therapies– There are various therapy sessions also, which provide heart relaxation and peace. Some therapies are massage therapies, structural therapies, energy balancing & spiritual healing, and many more.
i. Massage therapy: It is a gentle flowing massage, which is a wonderful antidote for physical and emotional stress. This therapy provides relaxation to the nervous system and increases the blood circulation.
ii. Structural therapy: This therapy is effective in treating chronic pain and postural distortion, which is created due to emotional and physical imbalance.
Above I have discussed about how you can balance your working schedule with your plant based diet, exercise and therapies. It is necessary to take care of your heart on your own, but still if you suffer heart related problem, the latest non invasive EECP treatment has emerged as a savior for heart patients.
It is considered best for those having surgery phobia. It is the safest technique to treat the heart where no hospitalization is involved. The treatment is of 35 hours in duration with 1 hour daily for 5 days in a week. In this, a patient has to lie down comfortably on treatment table, then their legs and buttocks are wrapped with cuffs, and on fingers, special sensor is attached, which checks the oxygen level and monitors the waves of pressure. There are many EECP treatment centers in India where you can consult doctors to check if you are a candidate of it or not.
