Believe it or not December is the highest risk time for fatal heat attacks. So I thought I would offer you some advice on:
- What are the highest risk areas to avoid
- What are the best steps to take
- What is the best nutrition for avoiding heart attacks.
What are the highest risk areas to avoid???
Believe it or not there are many risks for heart disease that you may not have thought of incl:
- incorrectly prescribed medication (up by 2% in the holiday season)
- suppressed emotions like anger (linked to heart disease)
- holiday diets like excessive salt, fatty foods and alcohol (Coq10 could be your best friend, especially on holidays)
And how do emotions affect your health?.
“Are unresolved emotions affecting your health?” that “emotions drive our behaviour and motivate our success”. Research shows how each emotion has a particular effect on the body that is designed to change human behaviour. Fear and anger take blood away from the brain and sends it to the legs and arms so you can run away. This puts a strain on the heart. Sadness secretes a hormone that makes you want to be passive and thus when triggered constantly can lead to depression and immune disorders.
Holiday eating/drinking habits can create heart concerns
When we are on holidays we tend to be a little more relaxed about what we eat and drink. It may be worth taking Coenzyme Q10 on your next holiday as new research shows its one of the nutrients we need the most. It is used to maintain heart health, promote healthy cholesterol levels, boost cellular energy and fight free-radical production.
