the heart could talk, we would hear the groans of a slave. Indeed, the
work that people make their hearts do is nothing less than slave labor.
The heart is the center of the vascular system, the main motor that pushes
blood through the vessels. It is a pump - unusual and cleverly designed,
complexly regulated, capable of enormous amount of work and far superior
to any model invented by man. No muscle in the human body can be compared
with the heart in strength or endurance. The heart can work nonstop for
more than six hundred thousand hours.
signs of trouble.
While one is healthy, one seldom thinks of the consequences that lifestyle
might have on the heart. People drink, smoke, neglect to exercise, put
themselves in stressful situations and eat excessively. But sooner or
later, you notice that the heart is not working properly - pain is felt
more and more often. You explain this condition by fatigue, irritation,
problems at work and other such causes. You hope that everything will
go away by itself and there is no need to signal the alarm. But this is
the alarm. Your heart is letting you know that it's tired and it needs
immediate help. But the human is a peculiar animal. Instead of rushing
to see a doctor as soon as possible and find out what is wrong, many don't
do anything hoping for a spontaneous resolution. Those are empty hopes!
Approximately one million people die of cardiovascular diseases in the
U.S. each year. Heart problems start around the age of 30 and increase
with age. Those over 40 years old carry a high risk of hypertension, stenosis,
stroke and impotence.
of the heart!!!
The medical 'anarchists' rely on pharmacotherapy and the success of cardiac
surgery. In reality, great results shown by cardiac surgery do not guarantee
longevity. Fifty percent of patients who underwent surgery develop clogged
arteries within five years, while by the seventh year this percentage
increases to 80. Postoperative infarction affects 10% of the patients.
Coronary surgery deals with only a fraction of the vessels. The condition
of the rest of the vasculature, the total length of which is approximated
at 100000 km, can still affect your health. This is due to the fact that
accumulation of harmful substances occurs throughout the body, and not
just in the vessels of the heart. The goal is to keep all the vessels
in good condition. To achieve this goal, there are many methods which
a reasonable person can use to live a long happy life.
You need to find a medical office which has the newest diagnostic equipment
and proper conditions not only for treatment, but also for prophylaxis
of the cardiovascular diseases.
You must finetune your diet to include foods that are helpful in prophylaxis
of thrombus formation, which lowers the risk of infarction and stroke.
Third. You must accustom yourself to regular physical exercises.
One hour of exercise is rewarded by two extra hours of life. Every 800
meters walked (on an every day basis) lowers the risk of heart attack
by 15%. Nevertheless, it is important to emphasize, that in order to achieve
results in prophylaxis and treatment of cardiovascular diseases safe,
but significant stress loads are necessary. Therefore, it is important
to select a program, which has a curative and prophylactic effect on the
cardiovascular system as well as joints and muscles. We use CARDIO-JOINT
gymnastics; PARADOXICAL system of exercises; the ALEXANDER technique,
the PILATES method and the MBF method. We have enormous experience in
physical rehabilitation of people with a variety of cardiovascular system
problems, including those who have had a heart attack, bypass surgery
or the procedure to increase the lumen of the vessels (balloon angioplasty).
We also perform physical rehabilitation of patients after a heart transplant.
From the point of view of primary and secondary prophylaxis of the diseases
of the heart and vessels it is reasonable to:
1) - use
the so-called pharmacology of the healthy person, including all the necessary
types of vitamin therapy;
- liquidate the consequences of stressful situations, using special exercises
and psychomotor somatic
regulation, medications and rehabilitating exercises increasing the effect
of night sleep;
- quit smoking;
4) - learn
the methods of prophylaxis of impotence and increase in sexual activity.
