Let’s Talk About Heart Disease

As promised, this is the first in my “Let’s Talk About…” series where I’ll be exploring various topics of importance for your health leading up to our 5th Annual Natural Health Symposium. First on the list is heart disease. Heart disease is something that a lot of us know about, in theory, but I want to get some facts out there.

Facts:

According to the American Heart Association and World Health Organization:

  1. About 78 million Americans have high blood pressure. This means that 1 in 3 adults has high blood pressure .
  2. On average, every 40 seconds, one person dies from cardiovascular disease in the United States.
  3. Heart disease and stroke are the two leading causes of death, world-wide.
  4. Over 10 million people suffer from angina pectoris—symptoms caused by poor blood circulation to the heart.
  5. Approximately 7.9 million Americans age 20 and older have experienced a prior heart attack.

What is heart disease?

So, what exactly is heart disease? Does it mean that you’ve had a heart attack or that you’re going to have a heart attack? Is it something that you catch or it something that is passed on genetically? The American Heart Association defines heart disease as “a simple term used to describe several problems related to plaque buildup in the walls of the arteries, or atherosclerosis.” Because of this plaque build-up, arteries can narrow causing an obstruction in blood flow and an increased risk of heart attack. Several factors can lead to heart disease, both those that are genetic and often out of our control, and factors that are attributed to our lifestyle. Having heart disease doesn’t necessarily mean that you’ve had a heart attack, but it’s something that we all must watch out for as the risk is present.

Why does this matter to you?

Heart disease is something that many people are living with without any knowledge. Friends, family members, or even you could be at risk and not even know it. Individuals can suffer from symptoms of heart disease for months or even years without realizing that they are at serious risk of extreme heart damage. The American Heart Association provides a self-assessment that allows you to determine your risk. They encourage everyone to know their level of risk by age 40. Do you know yours?

It’s important to understand both your risk and the symptoms of heart disease.  Know what factors you can change such as whether or not you smoke, the amount of physical activity you get, and your cholesterol. You should also know what factors you can’t change like your age and your family history. With this knowledge, you can better understand what measures you need to take in order to achieve your best health.For more information on the signs of a heart attack and other valuable information, visit heart.org.

Here’s the good news—you can change your health today, starting with the foods you eat. Dr. Montgomery is reversing heart disease by changing the way his patients eat! Join us for our 5th Annual Natural Health Symposium to learn how. How important is your health to you?
