Healthy Living For Coronary Heart Disease Patients

June 30, 2011 | Comments: 0 | Views: 92

Patients with Coronary Heart Disease can live normal lives. The key is based on the rational use of medication and self-conditioning in daily living. Patients should refrain from being angry, overly emotional and overexcited. In particular, avoid getting too joyful or sorrowful as this would easily lead to abnormal contraction of small arteries, which causes increased blood pressure, heart rate, cardiac contractility, which can result in ischemia or hypoxia among patients, thereby inducing angina or myocardial infraction.

Patients should consume a light diet, eat more vegetables, fruits and avoid fatty food. Besides that, he or she should drink a specified amount of water at an appointed time, consume small amounts of water daily but increase the frequency of consumption. This helps to prevent the blood from becoming viscous.

Overeat should also be avoided, engage in several small meals but eat until 70% full during dinner. Plus, patients must have adequate exercise, her or she can engage in brisk walking or weight lifting. Initially the walking speed may be slower, moderate the speed until the point where you feel most comfortable. When the walking speed increases, take deeper breaths and if there is tightness in both legs at the end of the walk, engage in a slow stroll for a certain distance before stopping. This can enhance heart function, strengthen the myocardial fibre, and cleanse the heart which promotes metabolism of fats, thereby reduces the amount of lipid deposits on the wall of blood vessels, which achieves the purpose of preventing coronary heart disease.

Spend some time to massage the chest area, focus your thoughts and engage in abdominal breathing. Match the rhythm of your breathing with the following movements, place one hand close to the chest and massage with an up and down movements. Repeat this exercise with alternate hands and make sure that the massage should not be carried out with a layer of clothing in between. Engage in this exercise for 32 times. This usual exercise can help to clear the excess fats in our body and keep the blood vessels smooth flowing. This massage should be completed at a daily basis before you sleep. Through strong perseverance, the patient will increase the chances of preventing coronary heart disease.

Sleep posture place an important role in preventing this disease, patients with coronary heart disease experience poor cardiac function and are prone to attacks at night. Hence, the best sleep posture is to lie down on the right side with bent knees to minimise pressure on the heart. Alcohol and tobacco should be avoided at all cost.

Combinations of these preventive treatments and stay vigilant on timely diagnosis and medication can help to protect the heart. It will prevent the condition from getting worse.

If you want to live longer, you must take care of your heart. The preventive treatments above can also be applied for those without this sickness.
