The cardiovascular system, consisting of the heart, arteries, veins, and capillaries, supplies the body with blood. Blocks in the blood flow to a part of the heart lead to cardiovascular disorders. Chest pain is the most common symptom of this condition. It is a major threat to good health in today’s times. The high levels of stress and anxiety experienced by the people today as a result of their fast paced life is a major contributing factor in developing cardiovascular disorders. Proper diet, adequate exercise and rest and developing a healthy mental state are crucial for the prevention as well as treatment of cardiovascular diseases.
