Heart Health: Lifestyle Changes

Stop smoking, controlling blood pressure, checking cholesterol, keeping diabetes under control and exercising are some of the lifestyle changes and home remedies you can do for your heart health. Dr. Paula Montana de la Cadena, Cardiovascular Specialist with Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute, recommends starting slowly in those changes: "They should know what healthy things they should eat, and also what are the things that they should avoid. So, start with that instead of starting to cut calories like crazy, because it's very hard to stick to a very strict diet."
