Heart Attack


Cancer treatment information






Diet and Exercise





Walking, swimming, cycling, rowing, cross country skiing are the exercises that provide the greatest benefit to the heart & circulation, both in terms of prevention and treatment. This requires a mild, constant effort.

While walking, the blood flow returning to the heart increases as the veins of lower limbs contract, and this leads to a series of benefits:

- it helps stabilize the heartbeat, preveting arrhythmia.
- it protects against arteriosclerosis.
- It helps to prevent heart attacks and angina. Indeed, under medical supervision, it is an essential exercise for people recovering from these disorders.
- it stabilizes blood pressure, and is therefore benefecial for people with low and high blood pressure.
- it reduces harmful (LDL) levels, while increases good cholesterol (HDL) levels.
- it prevents blood from accumulating in lower imbs, especially in the case of varicose veins. It also prevents chilblains, helps to combat phlebitis and edemas, and, under medical supervision, forms part of treatment indicated for intermittent claudication (limping).
- since it improves the blood flow to the lungs, it can help protect against respiratory infections.

Hi Jonathan, thanks for the info. on walking. Pretty interesting, how fast, and for long does one have to walk to benefit. I know in the past I'd heard that it's important to start slowly, and work your way up to walking a bit faster and a bit longer like every third time you walk. Is it still like that? Ant B

Hi Wassup,

To practice walking correctly, you will have to take several basic considerations into account..
-The pace and duration of the walks you take should increase progressively until you are walking at a fast pace for at least one hour a day.. You must start at low phase 15 mins a day for 1 week and increase it to 20 mins a day for 1 week, then 25 mins a day, then 30 mins then increase it 5 mins every week until you reach 1 hour a day..
and maintain it..then slowly increase the pace of walking..
-The use of adequate footwear (flexible, light, and flat heeled) is essential and also important to prevent unnecessary tiredness and injuries.
-You should wear comfortable clothes that protect you against the cold and the sun, that allow perspiration to evaporate.
- Always keep your chest and head high, and take a deep, rhythmical breath..
