HOW to KEEP YOUR HEART HEALTHY?


PREVENTION of cardiovascular disease


Cardiovascular diseases
can be frightening as it can be deadly, incapacitating and financially draining. Cardiovascular diseases include heart  disease, high blood pressure and stroke. These three rank high up for causes of death and incapacitation in many countries. 7 out of 10 Americans suffer from hypertension, diabetes, obesity and  high cholesterol, which are all risk factors for heart disease.

The good news is in many cases, cardiovascular diseases are preventable.

Weight management, healthy eating habits, stress management and regular health checks are helpful in preventing and managing the dreaded diseases. It is a myth that only people in their 40s and 50s get such diseases. Many countries have reported younger ages where these diseases are detected.

The causes of cardiovascular diseases are well known.

Excessive intake of calories, whether coming from carbohydrate, fat or cholesterol, causes fat deposition in the arterial walls, which gradually leads to their calcification, hardening and narrowing. It is now acknowledged by the scientific community that cardiovascular diseases typically take many years to develop (5-10 years) before symptoms show up. The most important thing this tells us is that preventive actions must start at as young an age as possible.


The risk factors for cardiovascular diseases include heredity factor, lack of exercise, age, being overweight, smoking and dietary habits, leading a stressful lifestyle, and being diabetic.










Symptoms of Heart disease







Prevention


Prevention is better than cure as there is much less suffering and costs involved. Keeping ourselves healthy is one of the most basic assumptions that must be fulfilled before one can enjoy all the good things that life offers us.


 
 Diet plays a large role in cardiovascular disease prevention.
 They include:


1. Control of calorie intake.

2. Reducing consumption of refined carbohydrates (e.g. sugared drinks, pastries).

3. Reducing alcohol intake or abstaining from it.

4. Eating more deep sea fish which are rich in Omega-3 such as salmon, tuna and sardines.

5. Consume the healthy oil Omega-6 such as olive oil . ATTENTION! Omega-3 and Omega-6 oil consumption rates have to be equal 1:1! In America the regular consumption of these essential oils rate is 1:20! Plus, reduce intake of unhealthy oil.

6. Reduce intake of saturated fats (oil which is solid at room temperature). E.g. red meat in general is rich in saturated fats.

7. Reduce intake of cholesterol, e.g. from shelled seafood.

8. Increase intake of high fiber foods.

9. Eat more fruits, vegetables.

10. Taking nutritional supplements that are beneficial to cardiovascular health.

When the Pressure Rises

Hypertension or high blood pressure is on the rise globally, and more people are starting to have hypertension at a young age. Around 1 in 5 Americans aged 18 to 69 years,  have hypertension. Western stressful lifestyle and dietary habits (what most people think its the normal!) are contributing to this rising trend in hypertension. Among other things,high-sugar and high-fat diets, lack of exercise, obesity, smoking, and stress are risk factors of high blood pressure.


What is blood pressure?

When the heart beats, it pumps blood into the arteries, building up pressure (systolic blood pressure) on the walls of the blood vessels. Our blood takes 11 seconds circulate around in our body, pump by our heart. The pressure is necessary as it makes it possible for blood to be transported to different parts of the body. However, if this pressure is too high, it can cause serious damage to health. If your systolic blood pressure is 140mmHg or more, or your diastolic blood pressure is 90mmHg or more, you have hypertension.


Complications

Hypertension increases the risk of developing ‘atherosclerosis’ (hardening and narrowing of arteries), and uncontrolled hypertension can expose you to a host of complications, such as:

•Coronary heart disease
•Heart failure
•Stroke
•Peripheral artery disease (narrowing of the blood vessels of the limbs)
•Kidney failure

The risk can be higher if the hypertensive patient has other medical conditions such as diabetes, obesity and high cholesterol. Known as silent killer, hypertension is often present without any symptom.

Simple ways to keep your blood pressure down

• Maintain a healthy weight
• Exercise regularly
• Reduce sodium (salt) in your diet.
• Eat a diet rich in whole grains, fruits, vegetables and low fat dairy products and reduce consumption of food with saturated fat and cholesterol.
