Heal Your Heart
More than 15 million Americans will get heart disease and there is one cardiac death every 40 seconds! That’s one out of every two Americans, who will suffer a cardiovascular event that will end in heart attack, stroke, or death. As if these alarming statistics aren’t enough, a stunning 120 million of us already have risk factors for developing heart disease!
Why, when we have so much accumulated knowledge and access to so many sophisticated medical interventions, does heart disease stubbornly remain the #1 cause of death in the U.S.? Why do we see 40-year-olds who suffer heart attacks? Or nonsmokers with good cholesterol levels show clear signs of coronary artery disease?
Dr. Michael Miller, M.D., a leader in Behavioral Cardiology, has dedicated his entire academic career to on how to avoid heart disease. In his research involving more than 10,000 patients and 25 years of clinical trials and ongoing medical care, he had discovered the missing link that surprised a lot of people, including him!
There are nine factors that account for more than 90% of heart attacks. The first eight are well-known risk factors such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and obesity. But even if you take care of yourself and avoid risky behavior, you still have a 1 in 2 chance of experiencing a cardiac event! It turns out that the ninth risk factor, a risk factor that runs rampant through our culture, is the missing link. Stress!
Now research shows that emotional factors, including depression, anxiety, anger, hostility, cynicism and daily stress are equally as harmful as physical risk factors such as diabetes, or behavioral risk factors such as cigarette smoking. But here’s the good news!
