February is “Heart Health” awareness month. What many people aren’t aware of is that heart disease is the number 1 killer of all Americans today.
That’s right. Heart disease kills more of people than car accidents, guns, suicides, medications, drugs, or even cancer!
Want to know the craziest part? Heart disease is largely lifestyle-related. Meaning, the choices you make on a daily basis, i.e. what kind of foods to eat or drink, going to exercise or not, thinking negative or positive thoughts effect whether or not you will suffer with heart disease.
Obviously, eating clean healthy foods, thinking good thoughts, and getting exercise is important. However, one thing that commonly gets left off the list that needs to be included is chiropractic care.
The reason chiropractic care is so vital is doctors of chiropractic work with the nervous system in the body. The nervous system runs every process and function that takes place. Which includes making your heart pump and work properly.
If there is a breakdown in communication between the brain/nervous system and the heart, then there will always be malfunction with the heart. This can lead to heart attacks, high blood pressure, or worse, death.
Why wait? You and your loved ones should be checked by a chiropractor as soon as possible. Did you know, the most common sign of a heart attack is actually death? Meaning, you don’t even know you have a problem until you collapse one day never to get up again.
Make sure your choices are the right choices and make sure you’re getting your nervous system checked and adjusted when necessary.
Stay healthy friends.
