Did you know that heart disease kills 1 in every 4 females?

heart diseaseAccording to a 2009 statistic, only 54% of women recognize that heart disease is their number 1 killer.  And almost two thirds of women who die suddenly of heart disease have no previous symptoms.  Screening for heart disease is so important and now there is a great non-invasive test that will help you know your risks.  Heart Month has come and gone, but with Women’s Health as the focus this month, it is as important to continue to focus on these issues and how they relate to women.
Max Pulse utilizes pulsewave analysis technology.  It is non-invasive and doesn’t even require a needle stick. The blood’s pulsewave is followed from the time it leaves the heart and travels through the blood vessels down to the finger.

The pulsewave is a snapshot into the cardiovascular system and evaluates arterial elasticity (arterial stiffness) which is related to atherosclerosis.  Arterial stiffness is a major cardiovascular risk factor.

The test analyzes:
Overall cardiovascular health, heart rate variability and mean heart rate, overall elasticity of large, small and peripheral arteries, arteriosclerosis progress (plaqueing), blood circulation and remaining blood in the vessels after the contraction of the heart, contraction power of the left ventricle, mental stress, physical stress and resistance to stress.  All of this with a 3 minute test!

Of course it is important to exercise regularly, just walking 15 minutes a day can make a difference, eating 5 servings of fruits and vegetables everyday and finding ways to lower stress in your life.  Chiropractic care can be a big part of reducing overall stress to your nervous system.
