Your Heart

Posted: June 9, 2012 in jogging, Le coeur pour la vie

Image Thru my posting I’m not only informing you about certain subject, but I’m also and more importantly learning about the subject myself. In my case learning is my driving force, it always was and it always will be. Thru learning I became experienced masseur, specializing in Sciatica problems, thru learning I became experienced in natural therapies, and thru learning I’m becoming experienced in medical issues regarding our heart.

Heart is a strong muscle about the size of your palm.”The Heart Keeps your body running” You cannot possible live without taking good care of your heart. Weather it means good diets, active daily routines and regular checks. Heart keeps pumping oxygen-rich blood through a network of blood vessels called arteries (taking blood away from the heart) and veins (bringing blood back to the heart).Some changes in the heart and blood vessels are normal as you grow older. But over time, disease can damage your blood vessels and your heart.

  • Are you overweight ?
  • Do you smoke ?
  • Do you drink lot of alcohol ?
  • Are you avoiding Exercising ?
  • Do you have diabetes or high blood pressure ?
  • Do you spend all day sitting at the desk or on front of television ?
  • Are you under a lot of stress ?

If you answered yes to more then two of these questions, then you should definitely looking into changing one or the other to make your heart pumping for better life.Early heart disease often doesn’t have symptoms; that’s why regular checkups with a healthcare provider are important. Your doctor will check things like cholesterol, a fat that can add to plaques in your arteries, and your blood pressure. He might also do a blood test for CRP (c-reactive protein). You might also have an ECG or EKG, an electrocardiogram. This is a test that looks at electrical activity in your heart.

Things that should be taken dead seriously;

  • Pain in the chest, shoulders, arms, neck, jaws or the back!
  • Weak or numb feeling on one side of the face or body
  • Dizziness, headache, shortness of breath,Vomiting
  • Tiredness, and swelling in the ankles, feet, legs, stomach, and neck

Learn the warning signs of a heart attack. If you or someone you know might be having a heart attack, call an emergency number of your country right away. Only fast acting and getting yourself or the persone next to you to the hospital can save the life.Always call an AMBULANCE !!

WHAT CAN YOU DO TO PREVENT HEART DISEAS?

  • Try to be more physically active
  • Reduce stress by learning to meditate, try Yoga for example
  • Quit all of the above, smoking, drinking, overeating on fast food
  • And start running with me for “Le Coeur Pour La Vie”

In the days of Gadget booms, smart phones and androids, is as easy to download applications and keep a track of your Jogging activities and compare to your followers vice verso. I highly recomend Nike+ GPS in combination of Path.

See you on the Track by Jiri Saidl
