February is American Heart Month
According to the CDC, heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States with one person dying every 37 seconds. High blood pressure, high cholesterol, and smoking are common risk factors for heart disease with nearly half of Americans having at least one of these three factors.

To lower your risk of heart disease, the CDC recommends adopting healthy habits such as:

  • Eating a balanced diet
  • Exercising regularly
  • Limiting alcohol intake
  • Maintaining a healthy weight
  • Seeing your doctor for regular check-ups

If you are struggling to adopt a healthier lifestyle, speak with your medical provider. They can help coordinate care with nutrition specialists and behavioral health counselors who can work with you to manage physical and/or mental health concerns.
