Eight Tips to Help Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease

Heart Disease is the #1 Cause of Death in Both Men and Women

Coronary heart disease is the most common type of heart disease, killing 382,820 people in the year 2020.

About 697,000 people in the United States died from heart disease in 2020 – that’s one in every five deaths. 

February is American Heart Month. We all want to live a long, healthy and happy life. However, there is a silent killer out there that we can’t ignore: heart disease. Heart disease is the number one cause of death of both men and women.

So what can you do to protect yourself? How do you know if you are at risk? I am going to address ways that you can be proactive and take steps to prevent heart disease and how you can assess your risk.

First, What is Coronary Artery Disease?

Coronary artery disease is a result of plaque buildup in the arteries, called atherosclerosis, which blocks blood flow to the heart and increases the risk for heart attack.

Common Symptoms of Coronary Artery Disease

The most common symptom of coronary artery disease is angina, or chest pain. Other symptoms include shortness of breath, palpitations, fast heartbeat, weakness or dizziness, nausea and sweating.

Risk Factors for Cardiovascular Disease

  • High blood pressure
  • High LDL cholesterol
  • Smoking
  • Diabetes
  • Overweight and obesity
  • Unhealthy eating
  • Physical inactivity
  • Excessive alcohol use

 Don’t wait; there are things you can start doing today to help you prevent and reverse heart disease naturally.

  1. Adopt a healthy eating plan of organic fruits and vegetables
  2. Exercise regularly
  3. Manage and reduce stress

Why a Heart Scan Can Save Your Life

You may be thinking, “how do I know if I have plaque or a blocked artery?” A heart scan is the only non-invasive way to determine whether you have coronary artery disease. If you find out that you have plaque buildup, then you can do something to reverse it. It’s best to catch it as early as possible.

If you are over 40 years old, then you should have a heart scan performed. At Hotze Health & Wellness Center, our EBCT scanner is non-invasive, open, and safe, and emits the lowest radiation in the CT industry. You can have peace of mind knowing that heart disease can be detected, safely and comfortably, in its earliest stages.
