The food you need to focus on

Eating healthy is one of the best things you can do to lower the risks of your heart attacks. Avoid fatty and starchy food. Instead add more veggies, fruits and wholegrain to your meals. In other words get the maximum out of plant-based food. If you don’t like such food and find it hard to accustom to them, try them in different recipes like entrees, side dishes, soups and salads. Also avoid using cheese and salt when preparing your meals. At least try to less their use. You also have to avoid those high calorie beverages and replace them with good old water. What about smoothies and fresh juices? They would be great for you too. The main purpose in consuming this kind of a diet is to lower your blood sugar, blood pressure and cholesterol levels which can directly trigger your heart diseases, plus make sure that you must have restaurant first aid kits on this situation.

The life saving therapy from ICD

Living with heart disease is actually a dangerous thing but still it doesn’t mean the end of the world to you. Patients with this condition are familiar with ICD because it helps you to monitor your heart rates and bring them back to normal. You can go for regular checkups to your hospital or even at home. If you want to do it at home you will need an AED. You can buy defibrillator from a certified clinic, online or even from your local shopping mall with a guaranteed certification. Also this therapy is not for every patient with heart disease so better check with your doctor before you do so. Get proper instructions and training to this as well.

Be active!

Doing some exercises would be great to ensure your health during these periods. Plus you can also lower your diabetes levels, blood pressure and cholesterol levels from these exercises too. You need to keep your heart muscle strong and apart from food, we recommend you to do some exercise and get active. But remember, you need to take advice from your doctor to know what exercise programs would suit you specially when you in this condition. If you had recent heart attacks, chest pains and other health conditions, take advice before you start any.
