According to American Heart
Association, heart disease is the leading cause of death in
America with one in every two Americans developing heart disease during their lifetime.
An estimated 5 million
Americans have a non-symptomatic form of heart disease known as
silent ischemia. In many cases the first symptom is a heart attack. Unfortunately, 1 out of 7 are fatal.
Scientists have shown that cholesterol-lowering drugs don’t reduce the chances of having a heart attack for a majority of people1. Interventions such as angioplasty and bypass surgery can be dangerous, expensive and provide only short-term improvement, especially when not followed up with lifestyle changes2,3.
The safest and most effective method to prevent heart disease is to protect your heart health. Research shows that heart disease can be managed4 – or even reversed5 – with a combination of exercise, nutrition and meditation. Additionally, living a healthy lifestyle will improve your overall health and well-being.
