There are many things you can do to prevent heart disease and stay healthy.
You probably already know that heart attack prevention will include lifestyle changes.
Things like not smoking, eating a heart-healthy diet, getting plenty of regular exercises, keeping your weight under control, getting regular medical checkups, managing stress in your life, and controlling your blood pressure and cholesterol.
It is also important for women to control other diseases they may have, such as diabetes and high blood pressure. Daily aspirin therapy or other medical treatment may be an option for you to help prevent heart disease and heart attack.
Talk to your health professional about your risks for heart disease, appropriate screening tests, and ask what steps you can take to improve your heart health.
Vedic Meditation significantly improves overall health. The stress release and deep rest achieved during Vedic Meditation activates the body’s own healing responses.
This release of stress during just twenty minutes Vedic Meditation causes our muscles to relax, including the muscular walls of our blood vessels. This allows more blood through the vessels with less resistance to the overall flow. This of cause means lower blood pressure.
Therefore the combination of Vedic Meditation, for twenty minutes twice a day, with a good diet – especially a low fat, low salt diet – and physical exercise, should see a dramatic change in your health.
