Over 45? Don’t wait until it’s too late. Get your Heart Health Check today

This is an email I received last week from my GP Practice, now we all know heart health is really importantand it’s the number 1 cause of death in Australia.

They state the issue from the very beginning, “We know, we know–nobody likes to think about coronaryheart disease.” Then they provide the statistic “But did you know that one person in Australia suffers a heartattack or stroke every four minutes?” and then offer a solution “Thankfully, there’s a fast and easy way todiscover your risk of coronaryheart disease before it’s too late.” And a very simple call to action “Read on tofind out more about the Heart Health Check and make your appointment today.” Now at no stage do they saythat once the risk is identified, you will need follow a new list ofactions, which generally are;

  • De-stress
  • eat healthier
  • drink less, and
  • Loose weight

Which together are over 90% of the issues that cause the risk of heart attack or stroke in the first place. What they have done here is simplified the process for you,made the barrier togetting the first step to a healthier heart easier even though I’m sure you are aware that if you did the4 items listed above you would be have a healthy heart.
