3 Unusual Heart Health Risks

February is American Heart Month.

Did you know that heart disease accounts for 1 in 7 deaths in the US?

We all know some of the basic percussions we should be taking to prevent heart disease. Just to name a few:

  • Eating healthy diet
  • Exercising regularly
  • Watching our stress level
  • Proper dental hygiene
  • Getting enough sleep

Did you know there are some unusual heart health risks that you don’t hear about every day?

Here are 3 that got my interest:

  1. Having 4 or more children may put you at risk for heart disease. According to Dr. Monika Sanghavi MD, a cardiologist at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, multiple pregnancies put extra stress on the body. For this demographic she recommends closely monitoring blood pressure, cholesterol and other heart-health indicators.
  2. Vitamin D deficiency: low levels of vitamin D may increase coronary heart disease risks. Even in our sunny California many people are deficient in vitamin D.

Here are few suggestions to improve your vitamin D levels:

a) Eat foods that are high in vitamin D such as eggs, sardines, etc.

b) Morning or later in the afternoon go in the sun 15-20 min without sunscreen

c) Take good quality vitamin D supplement.

  1. Shoulder problem and heart disease. Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine found a connection between heart disease risk factors and shoulder problems.  Read the article here:

According to Body Code System, there’s an organ-muscle connection. According to that chart Subscapularis muscle connected to the heart. Learn more about the Body Code System here.

With a healthy heart.. The beat goes on.”
