Go Red for Women!

February 1, 2017

 

 

Friday, February 3rd is National Wear Red Day

 

Heart health is something we all should think about--women included! Heart issues can be quite sneaky in women, so you should pay attention to how you are feeling and start really listening to your body. Some symptoms to watch for include:

 

· Neck, shoulder, upper back, jaw, arm or abdominal discomfort

· Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing

· Nausea or vomiting

· Sweating or paleness

· Lightheadedness or dizziness

· Unusual fatigue

· Heart flutters

· Unexplained anxiety, fatigue or weakness – especially with exertion

· Chest pain

 

How do you protect yourself against these things? Diet and stress are big ones; NOT dieting, but getting good, healthy nutrition. Real whole foods. Moving daily--walking, swimming, yoga, etc. Saying “no” when you are getting bogged down with responsibilities. Taking some time for yourself. Yes, that includes YOU, Mom! Delegate, enlist older children and other family, etc. Decrease or QUIT smoking--we can help you with this! Don’t take your health and happiness lightly--you are important and needed and we can help you learn how to treat your body better!

 

See your healthcare provider as soon as possible if you are experiencing any of the above listed symptoms.  Do not hesitate to go to the emergency room.  Have a friend drive you or call 911.
