February is National Heart Health Month

By
Real Estate Sales Representative with David Weekley Homes

 

 

 

February is always known for Valentines but also as Heart Health Month. Everyday we work hard and try to squeeze all we can do in a day but we need to take time out for ourselves. We had a Sales Counselor here in Cinco Ranch that was too busy to take time out to go get checked even though  she was in excruciating pain; by the time she finally went to the doctor the test they concluded she had had a heart attack; she then had surgery; she was lucky her heart attack did not kill her.

 

The National Institute of Health states that 1 out of 4 women die from heart disease. It is the #1 killer of both men and women in the United States.

 

Heart disease can strike at any age, no one is immune. Please go to the doctor immediately if you have any of the following:

 

                        ***   Shortness of breath

                        Persistent Coughing

                        Swelling in your feet or ankles, legs, or abdomen

                                Rapid weight gain

                                Tiredness or fatigue

                                 Lack of appetite or nausea

                        Confusion, impaired thinking or impaired memory loss

                                  Increased heart rate

Please take the time to go see a Doctor if not for you for your loved ones!

Hi Yolanda,

I was unaware February is National Heart Health month. Thanks for reminding all of us of the symptoms which we need to watch for as you are correct too many of us sacrifice our health for our jobs. Employers these days don't scarifce anything for their employees and employees need to put their own health first ahead of their jobs. The most valuable asset we all have is our health. Your blog fits with mine today about the Mended Hearts group from Christus St. Catherine.
