Now that a loved one has had one, it is best not to deal with the past but to look forward and see what can be done. More than the heart attack, which is physical, it is important to keep an open and positive mind. After all, mind invariably triumphs over matter.

Medicines increase the supply of blood to the heart, preventing a further narrowing of blood vessels and regulating heart function. But you must remember to alter your lifestyle too.

Change in dietary habits and regular exercise is what one should be looking at. Avoid:

* Ghee, butter and cheese.
* Coconut oil, the yolk of the egg, nuts and cream.
* Eating liver, brain and kidney, if you are a non-vegetarian.
* Fried foods.
* Eating a meal to the point of feeling full. Always get up from the table feeling slightly hungry.

You can eat

* Plenty of greens and vegetables including onions and garlic.
* If you are a non-vegetarian, you can eat lean fish and the white of an egg.
* Instead of using ghee, change over to cooking in gingely oil or sunflower oil.


* A regular walk at a comfortable pace could do wonders. Gradual aerobic exercises like brisk walking, cycling and swimming are mentally relaxing and also give a feeling of well being.
* Certain yogasanas, meditation and stress relieving therapies are also very useful.
* While climbing stairs, the person must do so very slowly, as the heart has to work for at least 10 times more than normal.

Personality changes

* Try and be cheerful and content.
* Learn to relax.
* Give up smoking. Nicotine is the culprit.
* Alcohol is also a risk factor.

The above dos and don'ts are very simple, and if carried out should go a long way in your mission to save your heart.
