I have the privilege of working with a colleague Dr. Michael Smith on creating webinars, web based classes to help people understand their bodies and their health. This month the topic is heart health. As I was listening to Dr. Mike speak about how many women don’t realize that heart disease affects every one in two women I knew I had to write about it in my blog. Since I entered naturopathic medical school I have been focused on health and woman’s health in particular. It seems like old news that women are affected by and dye from heart disease more than any other disease in the United States. I know however that everyone is not as oriented towards current health news as I am so I want to take this opportunity to use my voice to let women know we need to be more concerned our heart health. Heart disease is one of the most preventable diseases. Nutrition, movement and stress management are the 3 tools that you can use to prevent or delay heart problems even with family history. The U.S. Surgeon general states that 70% of chronic illness (like heart disease) can be prevented through diet. Eating well can save your health and your life. It is important that women look at their lifestyle start implementing eating whole foods, some movement and stress management techniques in everyday. It can help us live longer healthier lives.
