Potassium Rich Foods
As with any natural treatment, food is the foundation. Whenever we have a health problem may have to change some eating habits.In the case of the heart is usually a deficiency of mineral, potassium, so we recommend increasing the consumption of foods containing:
Infusions for the Heart
Medicinal plants with soothing and slightly sedative properties help us relax. Choose between one of the following:
Passion flower or Passiflora
We can prepare an infusion, sweeten with a little stevia or orange blossom honey and go taking small sips while still hot.
These infusions help us promptly, when we feel the heart irregularity. We continuously take infusions of hawthorn, an excellent plant for heart and circulatory problems, and olive leaf, a cardiovascular protector that helps improve arrhythmias, reduce hypertension and to give more flexibility to the arteries.
Self-massage in the Chest
Massage has almost immediate relaxing effects, whether we carry ourselves as if we had done a person of our trust.
Lying on your back, preferably on the couch or in bed, we will hand over our bare chest.
We will press lightly with the palm of the hand on the skin to mobilize some tissue that is on the ribs.
We will circles as if we had a clock in the chest, slowly following the direction of the needles.
Repeat it for about 5 minutes, or until we need it. Avoid getting up abruptly.
Outer Harmful Stimulants
Regular consumption of foods and stimulants increases the frequency of the heartbeat. By stimulating we refer to coffee, especially if it is roasted, the cola-based drinks and other beverages like alcohol, black tea or snuff.
If we take those foods that we like, we try to find similar alternatives that are healthy, such as coffee cereals, juices, beer without alcohol, white tea or green tea, etc.
But if we take them because we feel exhausted or lacking in vitality, we opt for other foods that do not affect the health of our heart, like nuts, seeds, smoothies, spirulina, maca, yeast beer, etc.
Do Not Neglect Physical Exercises
Exercise is the best way to regulate our body when it suffers some type of imbalance. Whether we like the relaxing exercise such as yoga, tai chi or walking, as if we prefer intense exercise, it is important that we make every week, at least two or three times.
It should not be a sacrifice that causes us disgust. It is therefore essential to choose the right activity we do, alone or accompanied.
Importantly, according to traditional Chinese medicine, the time of peak activity of the heart is 11 to 13 hours, so we recommend not perform strenuous exercise at this time of the morning.
