Simple Steps to Improve your Heart health

Let’s talk about your ticker. Or rather, how to keep your ticker healthy, prevent heart attacks, or reduce heart disease risks. Ayurveda states that with healthy living, inclusive of Ayurvedic practices, it is possible to take great care of your heart. And improving your heart health can start with things you do daily.

Daily Heart Health Routines

As a warning, if you experience pain and discomfort in your chest visit your nearest emergency room immediately. If you fear you may have some kind of heart disease or ailment, consult our doctors here. But making a few changes to your daily diet and routine can bring about a world of health benefits, and give your heart a new lease at life.

Follow these simple steps to get a healthy heart.

Fruit and Veggies

We're sure you’ve heard it, read it, or seen it a thousand times. Eat your fruits and veggies, and if you’re wondering about whether you’re getting enough. You’re not, eat more. This is a list of fruit and veggies to chow down on from the Mayo Clinic.

Fruits and vegetables to choose

Fruits and vegetables to limit

  • Fresh or frozen vegetables and fruits

  • Low-sodium canned vegetables

  • Canned fruit preserved in juice or water

  • Coconut

  • Vegetables with creamy sauces

  • Fried or breaded vegetables

  • Canned fruit packed in heavy syrup

  • Frozen fruit with sugar added

Portion Control

This is key, often times restaurants serve you on bigger plates to give you the perception of a smaller meal. Bowls are also deceptively tricky. We often forget that bowls have depth to them. Use smaller plates and bowls. And drink water between your bites. This can also help you cut down on calories.

Choose Your Grains

Whole grains, that’s it. Whole grains are unrefined and full of fiber and vitamins. These are nutrients essential for your heart and lymphatic system. They can also help control blood pressure. Here is what to choose:

Grains to chose

  • Whole-wheat flour

  • Whole-grain bread, preferably 100% whole-wheat bread or 100% whole-grain bread

  • High-fiber cereal with 5 g or more of fiber in a serving

  • Whole grains such as brown rice, barley and buckwheat (kasha)

  • Whole-grain pasta

  • Oatmeal (steel-cut or regular)

Cut the Fats

Well no, but limit the bad fats. Stick to nuts, olive oil and avocado. Ditch the rest.

And last, but you know we were about to come to this. Get moving. Exercise has a whole smorgasbord of benefits not without boosting your heart. Make sure to get a workout, anything. They key is to just move yourself to get a better ticker.
