The Heart Fit Clinic is the leader in cardiac rehabilitation and heart attack and stroke prevention program. Whether patients have had a recent heart attack or heart problem, past or trying to prevent this program will help people reverse heart disease.
A visit to the cardiologists after a heart attack can be a stark reality. The fact that people survive after a heart attack should be considered fortunate. It is important to understand heart disease and how it can be reversed with intense lifestyle modification.
The Heart Fit Clinic has released its cardiac rehabilitation and heart attack and stroke prevention DVD program to reverse heart disease. The many patients who have come through the Heart Fit Clinic program have reversed this disease using this DVD program.
The core elements to this cardiac rehabilitation DVD program are seven practices along with a workbook to guide patients through each practice. The first practice is first understanding your heart health. In this first practice, patients will understand the disease process through heart anatomy, heart diagnostic tests and procedures that they may have gone through.
The second practice to reverse heart disease is the cardiac rehabilitation exercise program. With this patients will understand how to exercise safely and effectively. The third practice is to understand how to eat after a heart attack. Which foods and supplements patients should take after a heart attack is a common question people ask. Also, in this practice patients will understand what to eat to lower their blood pressure and cholesterol.
The fourth practice is learning and implementing stress management techniques to reverse heart disease. Stress is a risk factor to heart disease that is difficult to measure. This can lead to anxiety and depression. Having stress can affect your arterial walls leading to inflammation and stress on your heart. The next practice is goal setting to reverse and prevent heart disease.
