One lady I know has a completely overhauled lifestyle post threatened heart attack, she wakes up in the morning and does suryanamaskaar, followed by sweeping and moping the house, her breakfast is wholesome with fruits and rotis, lunch is light dinner is lighter. She drinks warm water through out the day.
Her dinner time is eight and by eight thirty all electronic devices are off, only the landline works. Nobody contacts her unless it is an emergency.
Bakery products are totally off her list. She does eat friend snacks on and off, not only has she knocked off weight she has got her cardiovascular health back.
Practising the apana mudra for about 20mnts two times a day is another great alternate healing method.
