Considered to be an old-age ailment, heart attack and ailments related to heart have become a lifestyle concern today! Studies suggest that the rate of heart ailments in India is double the national averages of many countries in the west.
Though hereditary genetic traits cannot be controlled, the risk is even heightened further due to factors like diabetes, smoking, sedentary lifestyle, unhealthy diet, stress and obesity. While these things are controllable and helps curb the risk of Heart Ailments, there are other ways that help in reducing the risk of heart diseases.
Our heart beats approximately 100,000 times a day and helps in keeping the oxygen levels up in our body. But, with one person dying of heart attack every 33 seconds in India, not many cases have a solid reason of heart ailments. With the reasons ranging from lifestyle choices to genetic issues, people tend to forget that the environment and Vastu also have a great impact on your health. This has been recorded and observed since ages and have been noted in Ayurveda as well.
