Heart Week, so speaking Turkey Business Bank Associate flourishing Icerenkoy Hospital Cardiology Department, Prof. Dr. Timur Timurkaynak made golden suggestions to protect the heart:
– Park your car away from home for your heart health. Prefer houses with heart-friendly stairs instead of elevators. Do not invite heart diseases by blocking your blood vessels that feed your heart with bad habits such as salt, sugar and cigarettes.
– Our age has two major epidemics. The first is heart disease. Highly conscious people will not have heart disease. The answer to the question Who is at risk of having heart disease tells us what we should do. It is a miracle that if you have high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol, do not play sports and are overweight, and if you smoke, in addition, smoking is not a heart disease. These reasons are the risks that everyone can easily prevent and control.

– On the other hand, another disease as epidemic as heart disease is alzheimer’s, also known as vascular dementia. As the life span increases, your risk of alzheimer’s increases. The same thing is harmful for your brain, whatever is harmful to your heart vessels. That is, high cholesterol, uncontrolled hypertension, diabetes, smoking, obesity. You take care of your heart and hit many birds with a stone. Including cancer protection to these birds. A health conscious person is protected from both heart disease, stroke, kidney failure and alzheimer’s.
Gold suggestions that protect your heart
Salt and sugar overloaded in the veins are exhausting the heart: Body mass index, over 25 and fat in the lumbar region “is the mother of evil”. Weight triggers insulin resistance; with the onset of insulin resistance, blood pressure, diabetes, cholesterol levels begin, and the first foundation of heart disease is laid. If more than normal sugar, salt, and cholesterol are found in our veins, heart disease becomes inevitable.
There is no difference between a branch and a package: The most important cause of preventable deaths is smoking. There is no difference between drinking one pack a day and drinking a pack in terms of risk.
Over-the-counter treatment sports: We have a very powerful weapon to prevent all this; Sport. A very powerful weapon that controls your sports weight and prevents insulin resistance, diabetes, hypertension and hypercholesterolemia. It is free, healthy and without a prescription. A person who has adopted sports as a lifestyle has started to protect all his organs.
Let your car park be away from home: We need to act for a healthy heart. The healthiest and cheapest sport is brisk walking. It is necessary to walk a little more than 35 minutes at least 5 times a week, 7 days if possible. Or 10 thousand steps per day by counting your steps thanks to technology. Leave your car two stops away from your home or workplace and walk.
Ladder instead of elevator: I am at work all day, when I can do sports, if you say, here is the solution: Stairs are heart friendly. Do not use an elevator, prefer the stairs. Walk back and forth 5 minutes an hour in your room. Remember being mobile prolongs life. These movements both keep you weak by spending energy and increasing your heart’s performance. In addition, chest pain that may occur when you exercise is directing you to a cardiologist as an early warning system. “My chest hurted when climbing uphill”, we immediately take the patients who come to the examination.
Compete with yourself: The second sport for the heart is swimming. Football is not a suitable sport to start after a certain age. Avoid competitive sports for your heart health.
Crown the sport with mediterranean cuisine: A must is healthy nutrition. Eating healthy means eating with the Mediterranean-Aegean cuisine, a miraculous cuisine.
