Let’s talk about how to beat a heart attack!
By adopting healthy behaviours, you can delay the onset of heart disease or stroke by as much as 14 years! Up to 80% of premature heart disease and stroke is preventable.
- De-Stress: We all know that this is easier said than done. Keeping stress at manageable levels is important so those stress hormones don’t wreak havoc on your body, like creating high blood pressure. Try yoga, breathing exercises and massage.
- Nutrition and Exercise: This is the most obvious way you can have a positive effect on your heart. Even just walking in your community three to four times a week can make a huge difference in cardiac health, so moving more is the goal. Eating more fruit and vegetables, like dark leafy greens (spinach), berries, pomegranates, is another easy way to beat heart disease.
- Omega 3: If you were going to take just one supplement, your body would want Omega 3 Fish Oil. One teaspoon a day lowers blood pressure and cholesterol and slows plaque build-up in the arteries.
- Chiropractic: According to a study published in the Journal of Human Hypertension, a chiropractic adjustment resulted in a significant drop in blood pressure when compared to those that did not receive the treatment. The study showed that the effects of the adjustment appeared to be free of any adverse effects, which means it was a significantly safer method of treating blood pressure than the use of medication. Chiropractic is not a way to treat blood pressure but it is another healthy routine that can have a positive effect on heart health.
There is hope! Maintaining five or more healthy behaviours (not smoking, maintaining a healthy weight, regular physical activity, eating a healthy diet, and keeping blood pressure, diabetes and cholesterol levels under control) is associated with an 88% reduction from heart attack or stroke. Combine this healthy lifestyle with regular chiropractic treatments and you’re on your way to beating that heart attack!
