Dr. Oz talking about heart health

Blood pressure checkWhether we like it or not as we age our risk for heart disease increases. It is just part of the natural aging process. We may experience higher risks of heart disease, an increase in our cholesterol levels, weaken joints, muscles, and the list goes on. Some people may experience frequent illnesses as they age which can lead to often feeling frustrated as well as a feeling of despair. Many people who suffer illnesses as they age think that it just won’t happen to me. Unfortunately, it can happen to any of us. But don’t despair there are steps we can take to improve our health and ward off some of the illnesses and tragedies that come from aging.

Living in the information age is no longer do we have to rely solely on our healthcare professionals. There is plenty of research online to provide healthy information on how to ward off the illnesses common to aging. However, information is not enough. For us to stave off the onset of illness it’s important that we take action.

According to many experts in aging, heart disease is on the rise. This is despite the many pharmaceutical drugs that have come on the market. While these medications may be good in lowering numbers there is some debate regarding improving overall health. Some researchers believe that these medications have had an opposite effect. Whether an individual decides to take a medication or not is totally their decision. However for me I always look to the natural solution as my 1st step in healthcare.

Heart Healthy FamilyFrom birth to the grave the body is going through many changes. The changes starting at childhood continues on as the person works through puberty, teenage and so on. Some researchers believe that there is an internal clock, a time when our body and minds start to decline. As a person reaches mid-age he or she moves into advanced aging. This starts the decline of our natural physical functions.

According to many experts in modern medicine, no one can determine when our body becomes aged. At one time people 65 and older where considered the aged, yet today people are working further on than 65 years of age. In short, people are working in the 70s, 80s and even 90 years of age today, which returned a different view on the aged.

If you are not naturally an optimist, it’s never too late to change. By focusing on the positive in your life, you can be positive you will age better.

Take every opportunity that you have to tell the people that you love that you love them. You do not want to have any regrets on your deathbed about not telling a certain person that you loved them when you had the chance. Let them all know you care while you can.

Supplements can Help!

I definitely believe that taking the right supplements can help with aging, especially when it comes to our cardiovascular system. Tens of thousands of miles of arterial lining needs to be repaired! So our health depends on having a healthy endothelium (the inner lining of our arteries). Researchers know that nitric oxide is key to keeping our cardiovascular system healthy. It only makes sense to take nutrients that support that pathway inside our bodies.

Cardio Cocktail and Cardio for Life are two supplements that are designed to support the nitric oxide pathway. Many people have seen amazing benefits from using these supplements on a daily basis. They have a synergistic blend of nutrients your body needs to support cardiovascular health!

Take the time each day to enjoy the simple things in life. It could be a simple flower growing in the garden, or a smile on a child’s face. These things will give you joy and the more joy you have in your life, the more youthful you will feel throughout it.

If you find that you are feeling lonely when you are at home, consider getting a pet. They are wonderful companions and will provide you with company when no one else is around. Be sure that you pick the pet that will work out the best for you. If you do not want to commit to just one pet, consider being a foster home for animals in shelters.

Heart Attack Suffers Need Emotional Support

Fred Sanford Heart AttackIf you’ve experienced a heart attack, likely you feel frustrated, hopeless, etc. The emotions are common after any illnesses, yet you must take steps to control these negative emotions, since it only causes stress on your body. The stress will wear you down and perhaps lead to another heart attack. Let’s stop it now. After illnesses, including heart attack learn to focus on the day, instead of yesterday and tomorrow. You only have control of each day you live. Instead of sweating weeks ahead, try doing something you enjoy. Walking is a great way to reduce the risks of heart attacks. You can also visit friends or family members that make you feel good about you.

Support is essential. If you have support, you will have friends and family members who will open their minds to your feelings. You should never allow your feelings to linger in your own mind without expressing what you feel. Express your feelings to people you trust. Take time to listen to them and let these people know what you need. For instance, if you just need a friendly ear, then let them know. Holding back emotions leads to soaring complications.

If you can find support groups in your area that is experiencing the same thing as you, then join the team. The support will help you to share information with people who understand what you are going through. It is frustrating to express feelings with people who have not experienced similar illnesses or experiences as you. Try to find someone that you can relate to and speak your feelings.
