  • Reduce the intake of salt and sugar in your diet to maintain heart health. High sugar consumption makes the person diabetic, and high salt consumption leads to iron deficiency in the body. Both excess sugar and salt consumption affect heart patients.
  • Keep weight controlled. It is essential to maintain the health of the Heart. For this, control oily and fast foods diets and try to refrain from eating.
  • No stress is ideal. The more stress a person takes, the more stress hormones his body has to fight. Because of this reason, the Heart becomes weak and leads the person to become a heart patient.
  • Avoid consuming alcohol and tobacco. If one wishes to keep the Heart healthy, one must make a distance from alcohol and tobacco consumption. It is awful for health and increases the risk of a heart attack.
  • Regularly keep your heart checkups like ECG-ECO-TMT-CAT.

What Is the Permanent Remedy of Cardiovascular Disease (CVD)?

With such a large number of people suffering from heart related diseases it has become the need of the hour for mankind to find a solution for the problem. But unfortunately we are not able to achieve success in doing so. It is rightly said― where man loses hope, God generates scope. Supreme God Kabir Saheb Ji has initiated His True worship (Sat Bhakti) through His Truly Enlightened Saint in this period of Kaliyug when every home is encircled with medicines and diseases. 

And Satbhakti is the only solution to every problem whether physical, mental or financial. Amidst these falling circumstances where heart related problems are encircling humanity and decreasing life expectancy to an unexpected level one should not be late in taking Naam Diksha (Guru Diksha) from God Kabir through His Complete Saint and should abide by the rules given by Him for the rest of their lives.

Abiding by the rules makes the devotee automatically reduce its expenses to a very low level as they prohibit use of tobacco, alcohol and other intoxicants completely. Moreover it makes sure that devotees’ expenditure on things like marriage are reduced to small amounts as useless exchange of money as dowry is a strain for a financially weaker father in marriage. Therefore He gives a physical, mental and financial stable life to His devotees. Hence vital for a pious soul.

Take Naam Diksha (Initiation) From Enlightened Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj

Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj is the Truly Enlightened Saint present for the welfare of the entire mankind through the method of worship given by Him. A devotee should take Naam Diksha (initiation) from Him to attain every sort of comfort here and by His method of worship a devotee also paves his/her way to the everlasting abode Satlok (The first place ever created). At Satlok everything is immortal including us and we attain ultimate peace. There are no diseases there and we become immortal forever. For thorough understanding, listen to His Sermons at Satlok Ashram Youtube Channel and read His Spiritual Book Gyan Ganga.
