 Prevent Cardiac Disease While You Can!

 Prevent Cardiac Disease While You Can!

It is very sad to say with the increase in Industrialization and change in living patterns during the last 3 to 4 decades, the incidence of cardiac disease had also increased. I remember in my childhood days the cases of Cardiac arrest were among the older age group but now the younger population at age of 30s and 40s suffer from cardiac problems. Rajan Das and Siddarth Shukla are some of the cases that suffered massive cardiac attacks.

So why this heart disease happens


The risk of developing elevated blood pressure is 2 to 6 times higher in an overweight than average BMI person. When weight is high total blood volume increases and cardiac output increases, it becomes hard to pump.

Poor Dental health

It’s essential to brush your teeth. If your teeth aren’t clean, germs can enter your bloodstream and travel to your heart, causing endocarditis.


If any member in the family had an issue of cardiac problem then it is much chance that other family members can also develop a cardiac problem.

Physical  Inactivity

Nowadays people are less active they mostly like to watch Netflix rather than go outside to the park. In the office also mostly it is sitting job. Less active persons are 30-50 percent more likely to develop hypertension than active people.


People are loaded with stress. They had to face stress in every path of their life whether it is an office, home or college they had to perform their best otherwise they will lack behind.  These long-term stressful lives lead to an increased risk of Cardiovascular disease.


People start gymming without a pre-cardiac heart check-up and due to excessive exercise this increase the thickness of heart muscle. Moreover, they use to take supplements excessive intake of these supplements leads to Arrhythmia.


Smoking reduces the flow of blood to the heart and also speeds up clogging. Without oxygen and nutrients heart muscles begin to die. The risk of heart attack is 2 times higher in people who smoke as compared to people who don’t.

Worse Sleep Pattern

We are dealing with a long-time high-pressure job which results in a lack of sleep which leads to heart disease.


Research had shown that people who are suffered from Sever or Moderate Covid have more likely to have a stroke. Cardiologists also say that they had seen the patient with coronavirus have inflammation in blood vessels with leads to cardiac disease.

Symptoms for cardiac evaluation

  • Chest Pain or chest tightness or discomfort
  • Pain, numbness, weakness, or coldness in the leg and arms
  • Shortness of breath
  • Pain in the jaw, neck, throat, upper abdomen, or back.

So here are the steps to prevent heart disease

  • Regular Monitoring-Control and monitor your blood pressure. Blood Pressure is a silent killer. Please keep a blood pressure monitor handy and monitor your blood pressure regularly.
  •  Quit Smoking-Quitting smoking is one of the best things one can do to keep their heart-healthy.
  • Get Moving – Most of us have a sedentary lifestyle which is one of the most important reasons for cardiac disease. How one can be less sedentary at work
    • Stand up from your chair and walk around your room almost every hour.
    • Walk around when you have lengthy conversations on the phone.
    • Use Stairs instead of elevators.
  • Reduce your weight – Small weight gain can also lead to heart disease. The heart is dynamic and can change with small changes so everything makes a difference. Maintaining a normal BMI can have a beneficial effect.

Nutritional Medicine: True prevention

DASH  Diet

DASH diet which emphasizes a minimum intake of salt, sugar, saturated fat, and red meat and an increase in the intake of fruits, vegetables, and whole-grain is good for a cardiac patient.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E is the most important antioxidant when it comes to the process of hardening the arteries. Research has also shown that when there is high antioxidant content in plasma or blood does not allow adverse changes to occur in the heart.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C  has proven effective in protecting LDL cholesterol from being oxidized within the plasma.


Glutathione is the most potent intracellular antioxidant and is present within every cell. When you take the nutrient needed for the cell to make more glutathione ( selenium, vitamin B12, niacin) you are improving the body’s overall antioxidant defense system.


Bioflavonoids help to protect the integrity of the endothelium. Thousands of bioflavonoids exit within our fruits and vegetables. Here is a rule of thumb: the more varied the color of your fruit and vegetables, the greater variety of bioflavonoids you will get.
