Cardiovascular diseases are one of the leading causes of deaths in India, and the rates have risen enormously in the last few years. Many of us aren’t able to treat our diseases because of lack of expenses. We very well know that heart surgeries can cost in lakhs.

But now, with crowdfunding India, any illness no matter how severe can be treated, but money is the only hurdle. Once you create a campaign after calculating the exact amount you will be requiring, and once this campaign reaches millions of people in the country and beyond, crowdfunding sites will ensure that you receive donations from all of these people, therefore promising the best treatment by the best cardiology department in the country.

The other good news, however, is that there are multiple ways to keep the heart healthy, and all you have to do is maintain a certain lifestyle. Today we will give you the 4 most amazing tips, that you should take of to avoid having strokes, attacks, heart diseases and keeping your heart healthy for the longest period of time.

  1. Work out, even if only at home.

We are not asking you to run 20 miles a day. But something as little as 30 or 60 minutes 5 days of the week can make a huge difference to your overall physical and mental health.

  1. Eat more plants, ditch animal fat.

The more green (or colourful) vegetables you eat, the better your cardiac future will be. Research shows that people who have adopted plant-based diets are less likely to develop heart diseases. And in general, the more plants you eat, the greater the benefits will be for your body.

Veggies also help reduce chronic, low-level inflammation, which has been linked to heart disease.

While monounsaturated fats like the ones in olive oil and some nuts, and polyunsaturated fats from fish like sardines are great for heart health, animal fats and also animal proteins are definitely unhealthy as they give rise to elevated cholesterol and elevated heart risk.

If you do eat meat, have it in small portions, cut down on sugar, processed carbs and butter, and help yourself to plenty of colourful vegetables and fruits.

  1. Keep an eye on your weight.

Obesity is a serious risk factor for high blood pressure, heart attack and stroke. Being overweight but not obese still makes you vulnerable to insulin resistance, which is linked to heart disease. The more fat a person has around the abdomen in particular, the higher is the risk.

You will be able to shed your weight if you combine a diet containing mostly leafy vegetables and whole foods with a strict exercise routine. Eliminating sugar always plays an important role against both obesity and heart diseases.

  1. Laugh more!

The phrase ‘laughing is the best medicine’ is no joke, paradoxically. Multiple research has shown that staying happy is the best medicine that anyone ever needs, it is an instant remedy the surest way to getting rid of stress. Trust us, or science, that stress can increase your risk of heart diseases.

Apart from keeping your heart well and strong, these tips will help you keep risk-factors like high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol, obesity, and type-2 diabetes at bay.

It is possible that despite living the healthiest life and being extremely careful of our dietary and other habits, we develop complex diseases, the treatment of which is an added concern.
