Decrease Your Risk Of Heart Attack

The risk of heart attack is a common health concern for so many people. Fortunately, we know a lot about what causes heart attacks, including the health and lifestyle changes we can do for ourselves to lower the risks.

There’s an old Scottish saying ‘Falling in the loch is the wrong time to learn how to swim!’ Likewise, waiting until you have a heart attack is the wrong time to work on prevention. In fact, waiting until you have caused damage to your heart only means that you have passed from ‘Prevention and moved onto Recovery’ – and this is a much harder fight.

Many of the health and lifestyle factors associated with heart attacks can be easily controlled with a little will power and a positive, healthy attitude toward daily life.

People can substantially lower their risks of heart attacks by making the following lifestyle changes:

  • Quit smoking and avoid second-hand smoke.
  • Cut down on fats, especially saturated fats, which are primarily found in animal foods, such as meat and whole-milk dairy products. Some vegetable fats, such as palm oil and coconut milk or oil, are also saturated.
  • Restrict the intake of cholesterol, which is found in animal foods, including butter, egg yolks, whole-milk dairy products, meat, poultry, and fish.
  • Eat a varied diet that gets 50 to 60 per cent of its calories from whole grains, vegetables, fruits, and whole-grain breads and pastas.
  • Exercise regularly.
  • Maintain a healthy weight.


However, one of the biggest culprits is STRESS

  • Learning to manage stress is a vital ingredient in battling heart disease.

Stress has a significant influence when added to the additional factors such as a person’s age, sex, family history, medical history, and other health and environmental conditions. The best way to protect yourself against a heart attack is to know your personal risk factors and to tailor your lifestyle changes to suit your particular medical needs.

Mental, physical or emotional stress has a devastating effect on the body. Essential nutrients become depleted and the body goes into deeper distress. Therefore in addition to learning to manage stress you need to supplement your body’s nutritional deficiency. But where do you start?

Well I would suggest you take my free online and completely private Health Analysis.

Not even I will see the results unless you tell me.

For more information on your personal risk of heart attack, see your healthcare provider. Or visit my Habit of health website and learn more about your health.

Once you have visited these sites and you would like some support to help you overcome the factors that are increasing your risk of heart attack i.e. Stress, Smoking, Workplace etc. then drop me an email or give me a call and we can begin to return your life controls back to you.

In the meantime take care
