Exercise and Diet: Healthy Means to a Vascular Healthy Heart

Although a natural diet means a way to a vascular healthy heart, exercise needs to be included in your routine. If you combine these two, you assure yourself of an excellent chance at having fewer heart problems. Nothing can guarantee that you won’t have a heart attack in our stressful society; however, eating healthy and having a daily exercise routine cuts down on your chances.

A healthy vascular system and heart sometimes means exercise and diet are a necessity.  Diet is a topic I will cover in a future article, but for now let’s look at exercise. In most cases exercise can make up for a poor diet. Exercise aids in digestion. It keeps the blood flowing at a good rate, and exercise strengthens the heart muscle so it has to pump less often to do the same job.

How much exercise do I need to keep my vascular system healthy? The first thing you need to do is consult your physician! It matters not if you are young or old, beginning an exercise regimen should begin at the doctor’s office. Here you need to get a good physical examination to be sure your heart and vascular system can stand the exercise you need or want to do. So be sure to consult your physician to make sure you are healthy enough to exercise.

Some of the best exercises you can do to keep your vascular system and heart healthy are aerobic exercises. Walking is one of the best aerobic exercises for a healthy heart.

Walking as an aerobic exercise doesn’t consist of a stroll through the park or in the neighborhood. You need to walk at about a 25 to 30 minute mile providing your doctor says you can reach that plateau. If at first you can’t walk that fast, you need to keep improving until you have built up your stamina to the point where you can walk at that pace. The American Heart Association recommends that you walk at least four (4) miles each day to maintain a healthy heart.

So to have a vascular healthy heart means you may need to diet by eating natural foods and exercise often. Do you really want a healthy vascular system? Practice eating all natural and/or using all natural supplements. Then incorporate a daily regimen of exercise into your busy schedule. Eat healthy my friends.
