Denver, Co (PRWEB) March 12, 2012
According to the National Health Information Center, "heart disease kills an estimated 630,000 Americans each year. It’s the leading cause of death for both men and women. To help prevent heart disease and increase awareness of its affects, International Hot Tubs is proudly participating in American Heart Month. “
“February is American Heart Month and that’s a great reason to start a new plan for leading a heart healthy lifestyle. After all, New Year’s resolutions aside, isn’t it time we take responsibility for our hearts,” said Rich Hiner, president of International Hot Tub.
“People can greatly reduce their risk for heart disease through lifestyle changes and, in some cases, medication. To help you get started, we’ve put together 3 suggestions for making the uncomfortable journey a little easier…remember, the benefits do outweigh the sacrifices and your heart will thank you for years to come,” continued Hiner
1 - Drop the Cigarette - Okay, it may have been chic in the 1960’s but cigarette smoking is anything but glamorous these days. It’s a rough battle to win, but when you finally reach the other side; your heart will let out a sigh of relief that only quitting smoking can elicit. Besides, your clothes, your wallet and most likely your significant other will thank you.
2 - Exercise - One of the most obvious lifestyle changes for getting a healthier heart is adding exercise to your daily routine. No time to put in a full thirty minute workout? No problem, try incorporating little bouts of exercise into your day. For example, walk to lunch instead of taking your car, park in the back of the lot when you shop and always take the stairs even if the elevator is available. By adding little mini workout sessions to your day, you can easily make the thirty minute requirement for leading an active heart healthy lifestyle.
3 - Use the Hot Tub Regularly - As painful as the last tip is, this one is almost too good to be true. Regular use of a hot tub not only works to improve arthritis and joint pain, but also, improves the condition of your heart. By reducing stress, lowering blood pressure and even lessening symptoms associated with Type 2 Diabetes, a nightly soak in the hot tub is a winner. Hard to believe? The science of the matter reveals that it’s the heat of the water that opens up the blood vessels, similar to when you exercise-vasodilation to be exact. So bring on the bubbly hot tub and relax your way to a healthy heart.
“In an effort to help educate the public on how warm water hydrotherapy can improve your overall health and well-being, we will provide free hot tub test soaks in our 4 locations during the entire
month,” Jill Seng, marketing manager. “We want consumers to check out the benefits of a relaxing soak in an energy efficient hot tub for themselves.”
“Since we expect a huge response to this offer, we recommend that people wanting to schedule their free 30-minute soak call us ahead of time to reserve their spot,” continued Seng. “That way we can have everything ready for a relaxed, private hot tub experience.”
