(PRWEB) February 04, 2015
February is Heart Health month and Wimbledon Health Partners(WHP), a leading on-site diagnostic testing company providing physicians’ vascular, echocardiogram and NCV testing is recognizing it. Wimbledon Health Partners supports its national significance of educating the public about the risks of heart disease and stroke and staying “heart healthy" for themselves and loved ones.
Cardiovascular disease, including heart disease, stroke and high blood pressure, is the leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States. According to the American Heart Association (AHA), an estimated 71 million Americans have some form of heart disease. To prevent heart disease and increase awareness of its effects, WHP promotes early diagnostic testing so that individuals can understand their heart conditions under the direct supervision of their physicians.
Heart Month initiatives focus on increasing awareness about cardiac conditions and educating individuals about lifestyle choices that can significantly help in maintaining a healthy and strong heart. Individuals can make healthy changes to lower their risk of developing heart disease. Controlling and preventing risk factors is also important for people who already have heart disease. To help lower your risk of heart related conditions, recognize and focus on these efforts:
- Family history awareness.
- Eat healthy for better nutrition.
- Quit smoking and stay away from secondhand smoke.
- Control cholesterol and blood pressure.
- Drink alcohol in moderation.
- Stay at a healthy weight.
- Get active with regular exercise.
“To increase and bolster additional support of Heart Month, February 6th is National Wear Red Day and Wimbledon is making a concerted effort to support the fight against heart disease in women. As 1 in 3 women die of heart disease and stroke each year, we will fully support this initiative by joining the movement nationwide in honor of those dealing with cardiac related conditions,” states Stewart Whyte, Chief Operating Officer and Partner of Wimbledon Health Partners.
