Heart Disease and Your Health

Published on 1/19/2018
For additional information  Click Here

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the U.S. It is a broad classification encompassing several more specific heart conditions.

Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) is the most common type of heart condition, caused by excess buildup of fats in the coronary arteries. Blood supply to the heart is reduced or even fully blocked, causing it to weaken over time and function improperly.

A heart attack may occur due to poor blood circulation, damaging the heart and even stopping it from beating.


Pain or discomfort in the jaw, neck, or back.

Feeling weak, light-headed, or faint.

Chest pain or discomfort.

Pain or discomfort in the arms or shoulder.

Shortness of breath.

If you think you or someone you know is having a heart attack, call 9-1-1 immediately.

A stroke occurs either when blood supply to part of the brain is blocked or when a blood vessel in the brain bursts. Resulting brain damage may lead to paralysis, speech and emotional problems, and death.

Sudden numbness or weakness of the face, arms, or legs.

Sudden confusion or trouble speaking or understanding others.
Sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes.

Sudden trouble walking, dizziness, or loss of balance or coordination

Sudden severe headache with no known cause.

Symptoms may appear suddenly and often more than one at a time.

If you think you or someone you know is having a stroke, call 9-1-1 immediately.

Impact of exercise

Only aerobic exercise can condition the cardiovascular system.
Increases efficiency of the heart.
Helps keep cardiovascular pathways clear.
Reduces LDL (bad) and total cholesterol.
Increases HDL (good) cholesterol.

Exercise specifications

Stationary cycling, treadmill walking, or rowing are acceptable cardiovascular activities.

Exercise at least 3 days/week.

Sessions should include a 5-10 minute warm-up, 20-40 minutes of exercise, and a 5-10 minute cool-down.

Keep exercise intensity at 40-85% of max heart rate reserve (easy to moderate pace).

1-3 sets of 10-20 repetitions 2-3 days/week when resistance training.

Focus on quickly lifting the weight and slowly returning it to starting position.
Avoid heavy lifting and ensure normal breathing at all times.

Do not overgrip weights or clench fists.

Perform exercises in a standing or seated position.

Progress slowly.

Vitamin A – 15-20 milligrams daily drops your heart attack risk by 22 percent.
Sources: Brightly colored plan foods such as apricots, carrots, pumpkins, and sweet potatoes.

Vitamin C – Strengthens blood vessels, thins blood, and raises HDL (good) cholesterol.

Sources: Strawberries, peaches, citrus fruits, and cantaloupe.

Vitamin E – Prevents blood clots caused by the buildup of plaque.

Sources: Sunflower seeds, canola oil, wheat germ, and nuts (especially walnuts).
