Start of the American Heart Month

Dear Friend,

How did your first month of 2014 go? We hope your year is off to a strong start. With February being American Heart Month, I am dedicating this entire newsletter to raising awareness about heart health. Did you know heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States? The good news is that our nation’s greatest health problem is also preventable.

High blood pressure can put a person at a higher risk for developing heart disease. Since high blood pressure often has no symptoms, it needs to be monitored regularly. Learn about some startling new research about blood pressure that reveals one major reason why we need to monitor it regularly: Borderline-High Blood Pressure: Is it really that dangerous?

Now that we’re in the heart of winter, it’s a good time to remind ourselves of some tips regarding outdoor exercise. You know the benefits of exercise (especially for the heart) are too great to skip all winter long. However, these tips are especially important if you live in a region with colder winter climates. Read how to stay active safely in the article Safe Winter Workout.

The reality of living with heart disease is frequent doctor visits, uncomfortable symptoms, and numerous pills, including statins. Learn more about the reality of medications for high cholesterol and a recent and noteworthy update in guidelines for physicians that prescribe them here.

All the Best,

Statins – For Better or For Worse?

One major risk factor for heart disease is high cholesterol. Because high “bad” cholesterol can stick to arteries, narrow them, or block them, doctors prescribe statins to reduce cholesterol levels and slow the formation of plaques in your arteries. Benefits aside, are there any risks involved?
