Activities That Promote A Healthy Vascular System

Picture of Electrocardiogram Readout

Inactivity is one of the causes and symptoms of vascular problems. While you are more likely to develop some form of vascular disease with age, inactivity is one contributing factor that can increase your likelihood of developing a vascular disease. Other factors that can contribute to this include your family history, pregnancy, diabetes, high cholesterol, smoking, obesity, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, Scleroderma, injury, infection, chronic renal failure, or sitting or standing for an extended period.

Physical activity is essential when trying to maintain good heart health. It will strengthen your heart muscle, keep your weight down, and help prevent artery damage due to high cholesterol, high blood sugar, and high blood pressure. Johns Hopkins Medicine provides information about 3 Kinds Of Exercise That Boost Hearth Health.

  1. Aerobic Exercise – It is recommended to get 30 minutes of aerobic exercise per day. Suggested aerobic exercises include brisk walking, running, swimming, cycling, tennis, or jumping rope.
  2. Resistance Training –  It is recommended to do this type of strength training at least two nonconsecutive days per week. Suggested aerobic exercises include free weights, weight machine, push-ups, or squats.
  3. Stretching, Flexibility and Balance – It is recommended that you do this type of activity every day before and after other exercises. Tai chi and yoga are great options to increase your ability to stretch, be flexible, and maintain balance.

Dr. Benvenisty was excellent and helped us with my husband's extensive leg swelling related to diabetes. We had another specialist who didn't help us last year. We're planning to stay with Dr. Benvenisty now! He's detailed oriented, matter-of-fact and friendly. An excellent doctor I would strongly recommend.


Dr. Benvenisty treated my mother in the ER during this time of the covid outbreak. He was a part of a fantastic team of doctors that were brought in to find out what was ailing my mother. He is first and for most experienced in many areas as my mother was diagnosed with pancreatitis. Although he transferred the surgery to another member of his team, he gave me his mobile and kept me informed of her condition/diagnosis at a time where I was unable to be with her myself because of this pandemic. His heart, compassion, understanding and bedside manner are things that I will not ever forget. He is an excellent doctor and truly a great human being.

Howard L.

Dr. Benvenisty is the most caring physician that I know. He is brilliant, highly ethical and trustworthy. His knowledge extends well beyond his specialty. He makes referrals to the best possible physicians. I know Dr. Benvenisty for 25 years and have complete confidence in him.
