If an apple a day keeps the doctor away, what would it take to avoid a heart surgeon?
Some people aren’t too concerned about heart disease because they think it can be “cured” with surgery. This is a myth. Heart disease is a lifelong condition: Once you get it, you’ll always have it. It’s true that procedures such as angioplasty and bypass surgery can help blood and oxygen flow more easily to the heart, but the arteries remain damaged, which means you are still more likely to have a heart attack.
What’s more, the condition of your blood vessels will steadily worsen unless you make changes in your daily habits and control your risk factors. Many people die of complications from heart disease or become permanently disabled. That’s why it is so vital to take action to prevent this disease.
While these tips to prevent heart disease will provide you with some very good ideas, you will have to supply the willpower. After all, change is doesn't always come naturally to most of us, at least at first. Nevertheless, these tips are interesting, affordable, and achievable.
In summary, heart disease prevention is simply about making smart lifestyle choices combined with supplementation.
