How To Care For Your Heart

sleeping positions and heart

Cardiac health is the most concerned health aspect especially for the urban population. The modern day life style has not only precipitated the occurance of heart diseases but also taken out the time from an individual for focusing on the regular exercise .If somebody follows the golden principles of healthy heart as regular exercise, healthy diet and healthy lifestyle then certainly his chances of having heathy heart are maximum. However, certain smaller things can be of immense importance for being healthy. Ancient teachings and recent researches have shown the importance of sleep and diet in healthy heart. Here are these two tips for healthy heart and controlling your high blood pressure.

If you sleep on your stomach or on your left side, you are putting pressure on your heart with the extra body weight, while the heart has to continue pumping blood as usual.This additional burden wears out the heart more quickly. Think about it - you spend more than one third of your life sleeping!To reduce the strain on your heart, sleep on your right side, or on your back. This simple technique will add years to your life.

Research has also shown that people whose diet is rich in potassium (vegetarians for example) are less likely than others to develop high blood pressure.Calcium is also beneficial. Fortunately, potassium and calcium are abundantly present in a large variety of foods.Fruits, vegetables, beans, fish, fowl and lean meats are full of potassium.Calcium is a little more restricted. Foods rich in calcium usually also contain large amounts of sodium and fat, which can increase blood pressure.However, moderate amounts of milk are recommended, as well as yogurt, almonds, bananas, grapes, broccoli, potatoes, beans, tofu and sardines.
