  • Heart Month: Patient Education and Nutritious Recipes February 4, 2015

    heartFebruary is American Heart Month. According to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the United States; one in every three deaths is the result of heart disease and stroke, equal to 2,200 deaths per day.

    In an effort to promote awareness, I have compiled useful information to help my patients learn how to protect themselves from heart disease and stroke by understanding the risks and taking the following steps:

     

    Try to be physically active for as few as 30 minutes a day to:

    – Improve your cholesterol profile
    – Lower your blood pressure
    – Increase your energy and stamina
    – Boost your bone strength
    – Prevent weight gain
    – Enhance your mental well-being


    Heart-Healthy foods to include on every shopping list:  Incorporate these foods – high in vitamin, minerals and nutrients – into your diet to help decrease the risk of heart disease and other conditions.

    – Salmon, fish & fish oil                          – Sweet potatoes
    – Almonds & walnuts                              – Apples
