Detecting this disease early.
The common question we get asked is “How will I know if I have a heart disease?”
Any pain in the chest, above the diaphragm, back, below the chin, in the shoulder radiating to the fingers, should answer the question above and should be treated seriously. The chest discomfort or heaviness that comes with exertion is known as angina. If the discomfort is persistent or happens on a regular basis it needs to be investigated in a center with facilities of the Echo and treadmill tests.
Heart attack or myocardial infarction is an emergency. If the pain comes without any activity and is associated with anxiety, sweating, nausea, vomiting, it is most probably a heart attack. The heart muscles start to die because of the inadequate blood supply to the heart and you should immediately call an ambulance to rush to the nearest hospital. The doctor will take an ECG, 2D ECHO and if needed, blood tests to rule out the heart attack if the situation is uncertain.
Preventive strategies for heart attacks
Prevention strategies will delay or stop the damage done to the endothelial lining of the blood vessels. The preventive aspect involves the modification of your lifestyle. If you get up early in the morning you will have enough time for yoga, meditation, and walking, which will prepare you to face your daily challenges. With adequate water intake according to our age and physical state, we will ensure that the kidneys will throw out the toxins produced as a result of metabolism.
Throughout the day, by being aware of the food that we eat, how we eat, how much we eat, and when we eat, we will take care of our digestive system well. Ayurveda emphasizes that a healthy gut will take care of almost 70 to 80 percent of the diseases. Healthy recreation in the form of games, service to the downtrodden, spending time with family will also help in relieving the stress.
All the above changes in lifestyle will support in the prevention of heart diseases.
