Health is the most valued and sought virtue with human beings “WHO” in 1948 stated “Health is a state of complete physical mental and social well-being and not merely absence of any disease or infirmity. WHO sees health as a process of continues adjustments to changing meanings we give to life. It is a dynamic concept. Demographic variables have some influence on health. Heart disease is the largest killer disease over the globe. In recent years, education has come to be considered as an integral component of health care. The modern trend of health care in every society is considering physical exercises, diet, psychological socio-environment culture, stress management through alternative therapies such as yoga, meditation and another mean of relaxation. Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the United States for men and women of all racial and ethnic group and more people die of cardiovascular disease than of all the type of cancers combined. Myocardial infarction is a chronic life long illness. An earlier study has put forward health guidelines on self-care of myocardial infarction patients. Emphasis was laid on medication, diet, muscles stretching exercise and stress reduction technique. This was done with a view to assessing the effectiveness of health guidelines on health teachings, regular follow up to maintain a healthy active life and successful readjustment by careful planning.
