Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women, but at Baptist Health, we’re working to change that. Through innovative treatments, a wide range of services and ample resources, we offer you the support you need to create a heart-healthy lifestyle. Watch the videos below to hear how you can take care of your heart from our own expert cardiologists.
Exercise plays an essential role in keeping your heart strong and healthy enough to fight off disease. Set aside 30 minutes a day at least five days a week to do a workout you enjoy, such as walking, running, yoga or weight lifting.
Maintain a healthy lifestyle.
The choices you make each day determine your risk for cardiac disease. Reduce yours by staying active, choosing heart healthy foods, and making an appointment with your physician if you ever experience signs of cardiac disease, such as chest pain or shortness of breath.
Smoking can contribute to plaque buildup in the arteries and is one of the leading causes of heart disease. If you smoke or use tobacco products, ask your doctor about smoking cessation treatment.
Reducing your risk of cardiac disease begins with a healthy lifestyle, and we at Baptist Health are committed to providing you with the resources you need to keep your heart strong. If you would like to talk with a cardiologist or experience symptoms of heart disease, request an appointment with one of our expert physicians.
