HOW TO AVOID HEART ATTACK WITH 5 EASY STEPS

HOW TO AVOID HEART ATTACKS WITH 5 EASY STEPS

Heart disease is undoubtedly the leading reason for the death of people, and annually, more than 1 million Nigerians die from a heart disease.

In most cases, people suffer from coronary artery disease (CAD), which can result in a heart attack.
Research predicts that 920,000 people in the Nigeria will experience a heart attack, and about half of them will happen without any prior warning symptoms.

A heart attack occurs when blood flow to a part of your heart becomes blocked. This is often the result of plaque build-up inside your arteries (atherosclerosis), which may rupture and form a blood clot that blocks blood flow.

If this blockage is not eliminated fast, a part of the heart muscle will begin to die and will be substituted with scar tissue, which may lead to numerous health complications afterward.

For example, a previous heart attack (in particular, if it has caused a big area of the heart) poses a great risk for sudden cardiac arrest, which is the result of abnormal rhythms of the heart and can have fatal consequences.

BELOW ARE 5 WAYS TO AVOID HEART ATTACKS AND STROKE.

1. CONTROL BLOOD -PRESSURE AND CHOLESTEROL LEVELS - High blood pressure and cholesterol is one of the leading indicators of heart attack. Although both of these conditions can be hereditary, it is important to monitor these levels regardless of your family history. The higher your blood pressure and cholesterol, the harder your heart has to work to keep blood moving through your body. Eating a heart-healthy diet and exercise is the first line of defense in controlling blood pressure and cholesterol, although medication may be needed, too. Your doctor will work with you to create a plan that works best for you.
2. GET RID OF THE BELLY - Your stomach says a lot about your heart. Studies have found that those with more fat around their middles run a higher risk of developing heart disease. Doctors don’t really know why this is, but current thought is that the fat that tends to form around your belly releases more fatty acids that causes inflammation and plaque -- the stuff that can clog your arteries.
3. QUIT SMOKING - Now i hear you say " why is treasure talking about smoking? We are ladies..." well if you must know, statistics shows that 52%of women are addicts. What more is there to say? Smoking is one of the number one causes of heart attack and cancer among both men and women.
Luckily, there are more ways to break the habit now than ever before. Talk to your doctor about how you can quit, today
4. SAY YES TO “GOOD ” FAT - Not all fat is bad for your heart. As a matter of fact, certain fats help to protect it and are actually good at fighting heart attack . Try eating more salmon, blueberries, oatmeal, brown rice, and tomatoes in your diet. These foods, among others, have been found to be high in Omega-3 fatty acids, fiber or antioxidants. Green tea and red wine have also been found to help in the fight against heart attack.
5.MOVE YOUR BODY - Your heart is a muscle, and like every muscle in your body, needs to be exercised regularly. This means different things for different people, but the bottom line is that it is important to get your heart rate up for at least 20 minutes, no fewer than three times a week. Walking, strength training, swimming, biking are all good options.
