Heart diseases, medically known as cardiovascular diseases, are a collection of conditions that affect the proper functioning of someone’s heart. Common heart diseases include coronary heart disease, often the cause of heart attacks, and cerebrovascular disease, often the cause of strokes.
Heart diseases can be caused by lots of things, and genetics play a large part in someone’s risk of developing a heart disease. However, physical health factors including dietary patterns, exercise and stopping smoking are also important in reducing the risk of developing a heart disease and managing a heart disease in the early stages.
High blood pressure and high cholesterol are risk factors for developing heart diseases later on and are important conditions to manage as soon as possible. Although medication can be prescribed to help reduce blood pressure and cholesterol, the best way to treat these is by combining medication with changes to eating habits and increasing physical activity.
Dietitians are experts in nutritional management of high blood pressure and high cholesterol. At Mind Mode Psychology & Wellness, Denelle can equip you with the knowledge to make appropriate dietary changes to help manage your cholesterol and blood pressure.
