Cutting out bad habits is far more effective than cutting out organs. -Herbert M. Shelton

I LOVE discussing heart health! If you do, too, stay close as I share tips and tricks on how to show this vital organ the kind of love that gives back to your longevity and vitality. 

Did you know that the leading cause of death in the USA across all genders, ages, races, and origins is heart disease? Not surprised? Yeah, me neither. 😞 

BUT, did you know that per the CDC and American Heart Association, at least EIGHTY percent of heart disease is completely PREVENTABLE?! Yes, you read that right. 80% of heart disease can be stopped! 

You’d be hard-pressed to find an American adult who hasn’t lost a loved one to this mostly-preventable illness.

Statins, a class of cholesterol-lowering medications, are used to manage heart disease, with the hopes of slowing the progression of the disease. Unfortunately, they have been in circulation for over 30 years and heart disease continues to top the list for taking lives annually.

So, what can one do? 

You’ve heard the popular saying, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”? Well, it’s absolutely true. Celebrated cardiologist @deanornishmd beautifully sums this up with these pillars of health: 
✅ Eat Well 
✅ Move More
✅ Stress Less 
✅ Love More 💗

These are the top 4 habits to implement in order to avoid unnecessary heart disease and surgeries. AND, they just so happen to prevent a plethora of other chronic illnesses! #healthiswealth
