Happy Holidays... Take Heart!
The holidays are a time of joy, hope, peace, love, and sometimes an extra helping of stress, mashed potatoes, and exertion. These factors are what contribute to an increase in heart attacks during the holiday season. According to Brittanica, the human heart is a four-chambered double pump that is the center of the circulatory system. It moves oxygen and nutrients in the blood to cells throughout the body. It also helps to eliminate and recycle waste products. Those are some extremely important functions. The heart is one of the hardest working organs in the body beating on average 75 times per minute. It works 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. A healthy heart slows down when we sleep, getting a bit of rest, but never a vacation. It's easy to take for granted because if it's working properly, we don't think much about it. If you've ever had a pump go out in your vehicle, you know it brings things to a screeching halt. There are usually warning signs for impending problems with a pump in your vehicle, as with the heart. If your vehicle leaks fluids, it's time to look under the hood. If you experience an onset of pain, fatigue, shortness of breath, extreme anxiety, or weakness, it's time to see a doctor.
Before we jump into this first week of the holiday season, let's consider advice from Dr. Mercola and Kelley Herring about caring for your very important heart.
