February is American Heart Month

Enhancing Heart Health for American Heart Month! 

Did you know that February is American Heart Month? During the month of February, it is important that we increase awareness of heart disease and encourage those around us to start partaking in the essential preventative measures against the number one killer in the United States. During American Heart Month, pledge to take on these preventative measures and encourage others to follow suit:

  • When you eat healthier your heart is able to perform its job with ease. Start incorporating foods high in fiber into your diet and eliminate those with high saturated fat, trans fat, and cholesterol.
  • Getting regular exercise is extremely important for enhancing heart health. Simply add a nightly stroll after dinner to your routine so that your heart can thank you down the road.
  • It is important that you schedule an appointment with your doctor every five years to have your cholesterol checked. This will help you determine the appropriate amount of cholesterol you should be consuming.
  • Most importantly, seeing your doctor on a regular basis can help you identify problem areas before they become major dilemmas.
