According to the Center For Disease Control, heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women in the United States with nearly 610,000 deaths every year. While there are numerous causes of heart disease, a surprising one could be an imbalance in hormones.

What Is Heart Disease?

Heart disease, also known as cardiovascular disease, encompasses heart-related conditions ranging from heart defects, hardening of the blood vessels, and more that can lead to heart attack, stroke or death.

How Can You Prevent and Treat Heart Disease?

Heart disease treatment is based on the severity of the condition. Even though middle-aged men are at higher risk for heart disease, menopausal women also have increased risk. This is due to decrease in hormones which weaken the heart, making it harder to lose weight and leading to other imbalances within the body. Thankfully, many types of heart disease can be prevented and treated with healthy lifestyle choices, medications, or surgeries.

Heart Disease Prevention

The following ways to prevent, lessen or stave off a heart disease diagnosis are all very well-known truths. Knowing is one thing, taking action is another. Consider this list one of opportunity to prevent undue health risks:
Quit smoking immediately.
Exercise at least 30 minutes each day if not longer.
Healthy diet means eating small amounts of whole foods.
Healthy weight maintenance is critical to true wholeness.
Reduce stress in actual ways: more sleep, meditation, exercise, being still.

How Can Hormone Therapy Help?

While hormones are essential in maintaining a healthy body, hormone levels decrease naturally with age and can lead to several health problems, specifically in menopausal women. Supplementing hormones (sstrogen and progesterone) can help to prevent heart disease. This is where MedStudio can help with natural hormone therapy!
