Protect your heart this Valentine's Day

Valentine’s Day this year is Friday, February 14th and lots of individuals are looking to find that special someone. Do you have a valentine? If not, you might have recently gone through a break-up or divorce and now find yourself all alone. However, your friends can provide a support system for you during this difficult time. In addition, if you have lost your spouse to death this can be a sad and depressing time for you. It is critical that you have a good support system while you’re grieving the death of a loved one. Did you know that you can actually die from a broken heart? Yes, you can. For an example, this happens more often than we realize; such as when a couple has been married for 50+ years and one spouse dies. The spouse that is left behind is healthy but ends up dying a month later from no specific disease but their heart is broken and they feel like they cannot go on without the love of their life. This is heartbreaking and always brings tears to my eyes. I guess you could say I’m a real romantic with a huge heart.

Since your heart is the most vital muscle you’ll want to always protect it. Having diabetes doubles your chance of having heart problems like high blood pressure, high cholesterol, atherosclerosis, stroke, and heart attack. What can you do to protect your heart? First of all, if you smoke stop immediately and detox your body. Smoking is deadly not just to the lungs and heart, but the entire body. Be sure and keep your blood sugars in a normal range. Also, drink alkaline water, eat the right foods for your blood type, take proper nutrients, and get plenty of exercise. In addition, avoid sugar, bad fats, and starches. Strive to keep the body alkaline not acidic. Reduce stress and increase laughter since a happy mood will lower your blood sugar. Also, protect your heart from people that are energy wasters. These people constantly complain and are always negative. They do not know the meaning of “optimistic.” If after talking to someone you feel weary and lifeless, you might be dealing with an energy waster.

This Valentine’s Day protect your heart and focus on being happy and healthy.
