Today Barton Chiropractic Clinic would like to speak from the heart -- your heart! Did you know that 1 in 3 people live with some form or another of cardiovascular disease? It's actually the leading cause of death in men in America. It's now more important than ever to pay attention to what is going on with your heart. It's important to know what risks there are and what you can do to curb cardiovascular disease in your life.
Read on for 3 ways to help prevent heart disease.
When you exercise regularly you're giving your heart a great workout. Exercising 3-4 times per week at an average of 45 minutes will make a big difference in your heart health. High-intensity interval training is an excellent way to go. Even walking for an hour a few days a week will help immensely.
2.) Controlling Your Weight
This is a big one. Making sure that your weight is under control is hugely important for heart health. Eating a diet based in leafy greens and whole foods while reducing sugar and processed carb intake will also help you control your weight. If you're sedentary at work, make sure that you're budgeting time to get your stretch or your walk on.
3.) A Chiropractic Adjustment
Did you know that one of the best all-natural ways to combat heart disease is by a visit to the chiropractor? After just one chiropractic adjustment to a misaligned Atlas bone can cause a major decrease in blood pressure.
