Know Your Heart Better:
Physiology and Significance
If you’ve ever kept your hands close to your left arm and observed your vitals in a brief moment of attention, you must have heard your heartbeat sounding like the ‘lubb-dub’ which is how it is also described clinically. The sound you hear is nothing but the closing of valves of the four compartments of your heart which help in keeping the oxygenated and deoxygenated blood apart while making it reach the whole of your body. Though, this organ is designed to work without a break for all your life but not taking care of it well can lead to various kinds of health complications and we don’t want that for you. So let’s get started with the Ayurvedic guide to a healthy heart.
A Healthy Heart, A Healthy You
Taking inspiration from Ayurveda and its tried and tested measures to take care of your heart, let us begin with the preventions first! We highly recommend you to avoid any deep-fried food or edibles that are high in carbs and cholesterol. Though avoiding all of these strictly is also not a good choice to make as you must intake the good cholesterol as well.
You should also indulge in regular physical exercises along with a regular intake of herbs like Arjuna, Guggul, Kariyattu Ghan etc. to help your body get rid of toxins and reduce the chances of accumulating arterial plaque. Intake of the right herbs not only help your heart relax but increase its efficiency but we strictly advise you to consume ayurvedic herbs only under the guidance of a registered Ayurvedic Practitioner. You can also go for an internal cleansing with the help of an Ayurveda specialist to ensure proper detoxification of your heart and circulatory machinery.
Moving on, you should always monitor your heart and undergo a regular health checkup to ensure a healthy life and moreover, a healthy you. Keep reading this space for a more detailed guide to a healthy lifestyle in coming days.
