“Focusing on greater overall health and an improved everyday behavior is what leads to long-term cardiac health.”
Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) September 10, 2014
An August 26, 2014 article from Time Magazine spotlighted recent findings by a government-appointed panel that showed how changing lifestyle habits and diet can have a major positive impact on the heart health of cardiology patients. Results from the latest trials concerning improving heart health have shown that behavioral counseling from trained counselors, physicians, and nurses can lead to a lower risk of heart problems for overweight patients.
Experienced Beverly Hills cardiologist Arash Bereliani, MD, has helped patients improve their heart health through a combination of both modern cardiology treatments and a holistic approach to overall health and wellbeing. This focus on healthier behavior has helped people at an elevated risk for heart problems decrease their chances of future issues and stay healthy for years thanks to a healthier approach to daily life.
“The heart does not operate in a bubble, it is deeply connected to a person’s overall health and wellbeing, said Dr. Bereliani. “Focusing on greater overall health and an improved everyday behavior is what leads to long-term cardiac health.”
A Daily Approach to Better Heart Health
Researchers involved with the government-funded study found that behavioral counseling resulted in people at an elevated risk for heart disease resulted in modifications to risk factors, leading to better health in the long run. The study focused on 74 trials of intensive behavioral counseling focused on nutrition, physical activity, heart health, and problem-solving strategies. The counseling lead to lower blood pressure and cholesterol over the course of two years and decreased rates in diabetes over four years, all of these factors being ones that can seriously compromise heart health.
“Modern cardiology treatments can quickly eliminate many immediate risks compromising heart health, but helping a patient achieve a happy and healthy life can solve potentially lethal problems that even the most advanced life-saving procedures cannot stop,” said Dr. Bereliani.
Dr. Bereliani and the medical team at the Beverly Hills Institute for Cardiology & Preventive Medicine have dedicated their careers to helping patients live healthier lives and prevent life-threatening medical complications that threaten heart health. This is done through a personalized integrative approach to cardiology tailored to each patient’s unique needs, including health optimization, weight loss, and internal medicine. Dr. Bereliani’s years of experience are applied to diagnosing and treating the needs of patients across the entire spectrum of general cardiology.
“Heart conditions are one of the leading causes of death in the United States, but it doesn’t have to be so,” said Dr. Bereliani. “Helping each patient tackle the risks that endanger their lives through an integrative approach to cardiac treatments can mean longer, healthier, and more fulfilling lives for everyone.”
