Have a heart that’s healthy

February is Heart and Stroke Month and as always it is a good time to take stock of how you treat your heart.  Canvassers will be going door to door this month to raise funds once again for research.  Check here for events throughout the year sponsored by the Nova Scotia branch of the Heart and Stroke Foundatio. 

A stroke is a medical emergency and demands quick action.  What exactly is a stroke? What is FAST?  The more you know the better when it comes to dealing with a stroke.  

Read about how your heart works, this workhorse that so often goes unnoticed until something goes wrong.  When it goes wrong it can happen in a hurry so take a few steps now, it will pay off later.   You can eat for your heart, exercise for your heart, meditate for your heart.  It is truly your best friend and needs all the help you can give it.  Start with a Risk Assessment to see where you are.  

  It will be Valentine’s Day soon so make sure your heart gets the love it deserves. Here are some title suggestions about Heart Disease and about how you can cook to change your eating habits to keep your heart in good shape:
