A healthy heart indicates robust health, but heart attacks and heart diseases are leading causes of premature death across the world. Is it possible to ensure a healthy heart? Is there a way to avoid heart diseases?
 
The answer is yes. Besides hereditary and congenital reasons, all other factors leading to heart diseases can be barred by adapting a healthy lifestyle.

A pressure or feeling of tightness in the jaw, shoulder, arm, or neck; or suffocation due to excessive pain in the chest or shoulders can be important warning signs of a heart disease.

• Indigestion, nausea, and vomiting in people with strong digestion without a noticeable reason are warning signs of a heart disease or heart attack. This is true especially if there is no reason for the symptoms, they are unexpected, and if you do not find relief from general home remedies.
