(NaturalNews) Ever been really angry? Of course. Whether it's from having it out with an obnoxious co-worker or being furious with a significant other, everyone has had feelings of anger at one time or another. But be careful: New studies reported in the European Heart Journal report that angry outbursts can significantly pave the way for heart problems, including heart attacks and angina, as well as strokes.

So if someone feels so angry that they think they could have a heart attack, don't kid around. The findings suggest there may actually be some truth to the matter.

The researchers assessed information based on combinations of nine studies involving anger outbursts in patients who previously had heart attacks, strokes and similar issues. Approximately two hours after the outburst, the risk of heart attack and angina increased by about five times. Ischemic stroke and cardiac arrhythmia risk was noted to have more than tripled. Still, the researchers maintain that having a heart attack after arguing with a bothersome neighbor or the like is very small.

Dr. Murray A. Mittleman, associate professor of medicine at Harvard and senior author of the Journal's article, says more must be studied to learn ways to prohibit anger from creating heart conditions. He adds, "Are there specific behavioral interventions that would be effective? Medicines?"

Ways to reduce anger

Natural ways to reduce anger exist. Proper foods and lifestyle habits can ease tension and help keep anger at bay.

Food-wise, sweet potatoes, cacao and green teas may provide the body with a sense of calm. For example, cacao's magnesium is considered vital in helping the millions of Americans with the mineral's deficiency correct the problem and, in turn, restore a sense of calm to nerves. The foods mentioned all promote relaxation and restfulness and are encouraged to be incorporated in a healthy diet.

From a yoga standpoint, it's advised to lay flat on the back with palms facing upward. While taking deep breaths, concentrate on relaxing very specific parts of the body, focusing first on the head and facial muscles and then working downwards.

These lifestyle habits are good choices to make on a regular basis, not only because they may help prevent heart problems, but because a stress-free body and mind also keeps people at their happiest, more focused and energetic self!
