Heart diseases and problems are very common nowadays, so if you are worried about the condition of your heart and you want to be sure that everything is all right, try the method we’re suggesting you. It was found by a group of medical researchers and it is very simple and easy. You can do it at home! Just touch the top of your feet with your fingers. If you can do this, then you are in good condition and your heart is still healthy. You don’t have a heart problem.
A recent study published in the Heart and Circulatory Physiology found that this method really works.
Take a look at how you can perform it:
First, sit on the floor with your feet extended forward and toes pointing up. Then, try to rich out and touch the tip of your toes with your hands. If you are flexible enough to touch your toes, your heart is healthy and in good condition. You don’t have a heart problem.
This study was conducted in USA (North Texas) and it involved about 526 participants between 20 and 83 years old. Their blood pressure was measured while they were performing this method and the arteries and heart activity was closely observed.
When the study ended, the researchers found a connection between the artery elasticity and the body, especially in participants aged over 40. They confirmed that people who have heart disease can not touch their toes.
You should definitely try this method if you want to know if you have a heart problem. If you can touch your toes while you are sitting straight, your heart is healthy and flexible, too. But if you cannot, then visit your doctor immediately!
