Soon summer will be here... blistering heat, blistering sunburns and for some who might over-exert themselves after hibernating all winter long... blistering heart conditions...
Summer is the only season in Wisconsin that can make us suffer AND we still enjoy it!
According to the World Health Organization, heart disease kills 17.3 million people annually and for over 50% of those who experience a heart attack, their first symptom is death. This alarming statistic should make some of us more motivated to improve the overall function of our heart and cardiovascular system.
The Chiropractic-Heart Connection
Did you know that chiropractic care helps support your cardiovascular function? Proper heart regulation is dependent upon the integrity of the nervous system. Chiropractic care supports your optimum nervous system health, giving it an even more direct connection to your overall health.
Studies have been done to show the positive effects that chiropractic care may have on an increasingly popular objective measurement of health known as Heart Rate Variability (HRV) and one’s ability to adapt to the environment. In one study the authors reported, “The decreased heart rate and increased total power from the HRV analysis indicated a healthy autonomic nervous system balance after correction of vertebral subluxations.”
What else can I do?
Here are just a few suggestions for you and your family to encourage one another other to keep your heart healthy.
