Women have new guidelines to prevent heart disease

The American Heart Association revised its heart health guidelines for women to account for “real world” variables such as personal and socioeconomic factors and encouraged doctors to discuss barriers to meeting the guidelines with their patients. The guidelines recommend that women adopt a healthy lifestyle, which includes consumption of fruits and vegetables, be physically active and maintain a healthy body weight. – USA Today (2/14).

Wendy Vineyard Comments…

Last week, my husband and I hosted a fundraising party for the cardiac unit of our local hospital group. They’re raising money to buy a diagnostic machine that costs $250,000. I decorated with a Valentine’s Day ’heart’ theme, we had a great time and our friends donated generously. I agreed to do this because I feel compassion for people who find themselves at the most drastic, invasive and riskiest solution for life-threatening heart problems. Heart disease is frequently a problem that shows up at mid-life – after years of poor lifestyle choices.

Did you know that cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death for women – much higher than breast cancer? In the United States that translates to 422,000 deaths a year — more than cancer, respiratory disease, Alzheimer’s and accidents combined.

Heart disease is an ‘outcome’ and it results from choices you make every day.

Prevention is the real answer for heart disease. And I believe it begins with love of self. If you love yourself enough to take care of your body, I believe you’ll drastically reduce your chances of developing heart disease – whether or not your relatives have it. What can you do starting today? Eat nourishing foods, take key supplements such as CoEnzyme Q10, cleanse your body regularly, drink fresh, purified water, exercise every day, manage rather than ignore stress, and make other healthy lifestyle choices that you can find on this website.

It’s tragic that people assume they can abuse their bodies, stuff their emotions and blunder about their lives and expect modern medicine to save them when the time comes. The thing I remember best about heart disease is that the first symptom is usually ‘sudden death’. No time for the doctors to work some magic…and no more time to spend with loved family members.
