Heart Disease SECRET Could Save Your Life
If you are a woman, you need to read this.
If you are a man, go grab the woman you love and sit her down in front of this computer.
For years, we’ve been told that heart disease was mostly a man’s problem… in fact, lots of women even ignore the symptoms of heart attacks.
But now the heart disease gender gap is closing.
And it’s more important than ever for women to know what to do to stay safe.
What most people picture when they hear the words “heart attack” is an old, angry man, who enjoys beer and chips for dinner.
Men die of heart attacks more than women, right?
Wrong. That used to be true, but it is no longer.
A new study has shown that the gender gap in heart attacks has leveled out. In fact, younger women who have a heart attack die more often than men of the same age.
To make matters worse, young women often miss the signs of a heart attack.
This is a problem because men and women—even doctors—don’t expect women to have heart attacks. So, when a woman shows up at the emergency room not feeling well, the last thing anyone in the room is thinking is that they had a heart attack.
For a long time, we have known that women experience heart attacks differently. They have the classic signs (pain in jaw or left arm), but they can also present with a mild pain, anxiety, and a feeling that something is wrong.
For most people with heart disease, the first sign of a heart attack is the heart attack itself. For this reason, heart disease has been dubbed the “Silent Killer.” But the real Silent Killer is the fact that women are at an equal (or greater) risk for heart attacks as men.
Let’s make both men and women’s hearts a priority:
Dr. Scotts Heart Health Program:
- Eat Well: Avoid processed food (fast foods, packaged food) as much as possible. Trans fats, sugar, and other chemicals in these foods will destroy your heart. Eat as many vegetables as you can and choose from healthy proteins.
- Stop Inflammation: Pick your favorite anti-inflammatory supplement. I like fish oil, curcumin, and Boswellia.
- Exercise: Find something you love to do (biking, swimming, golf, tennis…) and do that as much as possible. You don’t have to be too crazy with exercise–even walking will help.
- Antioxidants: Make sure you are getting enough antioxidants. I cover my bases by taking a superfoods blend that is great for controlling free radicals.
Women (and men) need to look after their hearts – it’s the most common reason you could die.
All it takes is a bit of effort to ensure your heart is healthy your whole life.
