My Husbands pulse is 108 after a slow 10 ten min walk, is this normal ?

Husbands pulse is 108 after a slow 10 ten min walk he is 46, a bit underweigt and active. Is this normal? I am worried, he is tired all the time - I can hear his heart beat . he sleeps quite a lot. We had a good day and had a day out the other day - but it floored him for the next day. We are only talikng a slow four mile walk here. Thyroid was but isn t now overactive (it has been tested and doctor says it is within the normal limits ), and he has a leaky valve which is tested every year (about 8 months ago was not too serious at all and had no affect on his life)- its just that he seems to be getting tired easier then before. The doctor hinted it was psychosomatic (sorry about the spelling) but he really is not one to worry about himself at all, and I know him not to dwell on his health . Am I being paranoid ? Or shoudl I kick up a stink at his doctors to try and get his annual heart check moved earlier.

How about looking at he overall picture of his health? What is his diet? How is his nutrition? What are you feeding the body so that it can repair? What are you feeding the body for energy? How much artificial chemicals and preservatives is his system having to fight during digestion and absorption? I have helped clients see great improvements in their health simply by eliminating foods that are difficult to digest and hinder absorption. I work with guys that are over 60 and can workout with a heart rate over 180. It is because they have a base of nutrition that allows them to do so. How much time has your doctor spent on his diet and nutrition? How much training has your doctor had in that area? If you are interested I can give you some simple changes that should make a big difference.
