Walking is the best medicine. Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, said this more than two and a half thousand years ago. The same is true today. That's what health researchers around the world say.
The benefits of walking are vast. For those who walk regularly, their heart stays healthy. Because, walking increases the performance of the heart and lungs. And the role of regular walking in the prevention and control of life-threatening diseases such as high blood pressure, diabetes and stroke has now been proven in multiple studies. Not only sound education but his alertness and dedication too are most required.
A large-scale study of about 40,000 men and women found that those who made regular walking a significant part of their daily lives were less likely to get sick. They also need less medicine. Walking also increases the body's ability to absorb oxygen. As a result, body and mind are always alive.
Walk regularly to keep your heart healthy
Walk regularly. This is especially beneficial for your heart health. People who walk briskly for three hours a week have a much lower risk of coronary heart disease. As well as reduced risk of heart attack. The heart is healthy, strong and more efficient.
Variations in blood cholesterol levels are one of the leading causes of coronary heart disease. It should be noted here that for heart health, the amount of harmful cholesterol LDL should be moderate and the amount of beneficial cholesterol HDL should be more than the specified limit. That's exactly what happens when you walk regularly. That is, the amount of LDL decreases and the amount of HDL increases. It is important for the health of the heart.
Also, regular walking helps in controlling body weight. Note that being overweight or obese is one of the leading causes of coronary heart disease.
Increases the likelihood of ‘natural bypass’
For those who walk regularly, collateral circulation develops around their heart. How is that? We hear a lot of times, angiogram shows that the blood flow in one or two coronary arteries is 100% blocked i.e. 100% blockage. It's normal to ask questions - but how does he survive? If the blood vessels are 100% closed, then the heart cells and muscles are completely useless due to lack of necessary blood and nutrients and even die. But why isn't that happening in his case?
What happens here is that a collateral circulation is formed by activating some complementary blood vessels around the blocked arteries of the heart. Note that there are numerous tiny blood vessels around the coronary arteries of the heart-those who do physical work, exercise, especially those who walk regularly, these blood vessels become active. Basically, through this alternative blood supply system, the required blood reaches all parts of the heart.
One study found that the number of these tiny blood vessels can range from two to two and a half in some cases. In medical terms, this has been termed as 'natural bypass'.
As a means of curing coronary heart disease, a treatment called 'ECP' has been introduced in the country and abroad. The main purpose of which is to create collateral circulation. And this is the benefit you can get without spending money through regular 30 minutes to one hour of walking and exercise. On the one hand, walking increases your chances of a natural bypass, as well as the other benefits of walking.
Reduces the risk of high blood pressure, diabetes, stroke
If you walk regularly, you will be free from the risk of high blood pressure, diabetes and stroke. People with a family history of diabetes suffer from anxiety. Chase them back to the risk of developing diabetes. Often people think, there is no relief from this. Researchers say there is no way out. That is, walk hard at least four / five days a week. This has been proven in a study conducted in England.
Again, if you already have high blood pressure and diabetes, it is more important for you to follow the rules every day. Because, walking is very effective in controlling these diseases. You can easily avoid the complications caused by these diseases. And that is why when these diseases are identified, doctors recommend regular walking along with medication.

Even among cancer-stricken patients who walk regularly, the side effects of chemotherapy have been found to be comparatively less than others.
Walking reduces the risk of osteoporosis. In addition, regular walking makes the body's immune system more integrated and efficient.
Walk, be happy
A significant benefit of regular walking is that it increases blood flow to the blood vessels and neurons in the brain. All the neurons in the brain, synapses become active. The brain becomes more active and lively.
Those who walk regularly, their body-mind creates a feeling of happiness. Because, it reduces the amount of stress. The researchers say that these people are relatively worry-free, cheerful, youthful and positive-minded. Regular walking greatly reduces the risk of Alzheimer's disease.
Walking prevents and cures depression. Studies have shown that a group of patients with severe depression were advised to walk regularly. After running for 12 consecutive weeks, their depression rate has dropped significantly. According to scientists, walking is really pleasant. And walking is also closely related to a good night's sleep.
