Show Your Heart Some Love

February is American Heart Month, so make a date with your doc if you haven't had a physical in awhile.  Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women, but prevention is everything when it comes to bolstering your heart health. Your doctor can help by discussing any risk factors you may have, such as a family history, high cholesterol or blood pressure, and offer suggestions for preventative steps you can take.

You can make healthy changes to lower your risk of developing heart disease. Controlling risk factors is also important for people who already have heart disease. To lower your risk:
  • Watch your weight.
  • Stop smoking and avoid secondhand smoke.
  • Manage your cholesterol and blood pressure levels.
  • If you drink, consume alcohol in moderation.
  • Maintain an active lifestyle and a healthy diet.
It's That Time of Year...the Flu is Here!

Just because you haven't gotten the flu this year doesn't mean you are out of the woods yet. The  Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that flu activity is prevalent in 35 states. So how can you protect yourself? The CDC recommends everyone take some common sense steps to prevent contracting or spreading the flu. Read our blog  to learn more!
