The Facts Surrounding Heart Disease



February is filled with all things heart-shaped -- from Valentine’s Day cards to candies -- but this month, we’re highlighting hearts in a different way. We sat down with Dr. Zafarani of Women’s Care to take a closer look at the facts surrounding heart disease and what you can do to stay healthy.

What Is Heart Disease?

While many people correlate heart attacks with heart disease, there are a wide variety of heart complications that fall under this category. Even though blockages in the arteries are one of the most common issues, heart disease also covers problems that arise in the heart valves, the electric system, the myocardium (heart muscle), and the pericardium (lining of the heart).

In short, if you have a heart, you could be affected by heart disease. Even young, healthy women are at risk, although they are more likely to experience congenital heart abnormalities (like mitral valve prolapse) or genetic problems than a heart attack.

“Women should take the time to learn more about heart disease because it is the number one cause of mortality in women,” Dr. Zafarani explains. “It affects one in four women, even though ⅔ of women do not report having any symptoms.”

How To Lower Your Risk 

Heart disease is preventable, so it is important to know what steps you can take to keep yourself healthy.

“Some of the major risk factors include high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and smoking,” Dr. Zafarani says.

While family history, medical history, and age also play a role, maintaining a healthy lifestyle can seriously decrease your likelihood of being affected by heart disease.

“You can modify your lifestyle to lower your risks. For example, you can add a healthier diet or start exercising if that is not already a part of your routine,” Dr. Zafarani suggests. “If you smoke, it is also really important that you quit.”

In addition to modifying your lifestyle, you can make it a point to see your healthcare provider for regular cholesterol and blood pressure screenings.

“Heart disease is almost always preventable with screening and intervention,” Dr. Zafarani says.
Since the symptoms of heart disease are not always easy to identify, it is really crucial to schedule annual wellness checks with your healthcare provider.

“If there are other risk factors you are concerned about, you can also talk to your healthcare provider during your appointment. We are here to help you live a healthier life!” Dr. Zafarani says.

    and he asked me to email him, which idid, so he told me that all my
    problems is over and then he decided to do an healing spell spell for me so
    after he finished it, he told me to wait for just 24 hours and then i
    should go for a test, so i really did as he had said, so my greatest
    surprised when i went to the hospital to go for an HIV test, the Medical
    doctor diagnosed that, i am now HIV negetative at first i was amazed and
    now i have come to realise that this spell caster Dr. Akioya is a very
    powerful one and a real spell caster. So viewers of this should please join

  9. It is no secret that I have a very deep and personal relationship with God. I have pushed and resisted that relationship this past year through all the bullshit I have had to go through living with Herpes but once again, God is bigger than my stubbornness and broke through that outbreak cold sore and all I had Genital Herpes. For me personally, hearing over and over how I am not good enough has really invaded my mind in the worst way possible. I completely shut down and I was just waking up like is this how life going to end this temporary herpes outbreak “fuck everybody with herpes if you know what I mean” but let's be honest here...It is a cowardly to say no to herbal medicine. It is fear based. And it is dishonest to what my heart wants. Don't build a wall around yourself because you are afraid of herbals made or taking a bold step especially when it's come to health issues and getting cure. So many young men/ women tell me over and over that Dr Itua is going to scam me but I give him a try to today I feel like no one will ever convince me about herbal medicine I accept Dr Itua herbal medicine because it's cure my herpes just two weeks of drinking it and i have been living for a year and months now I experience outbreak no more, You can contact him if you need his herbal medicine for any such diseases like,HIV,Epilepsy Infertility, Herpes, Hepatitis, Schizophrenia,Cancer,Fibromyalgia,Fluoroquinolone Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva.Dupuytren's disease,Desmoplastic,Diabetes ,Coeliac disease,Cerebral Amyloid Angiopathy,Hpv,Weak Erection,Wart Remover. Ataxia,Arthritis,Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis,Alzheimer's disease,Adrenocortical carcinoma.Asthma,Allergic, Love Spell,. Email..drituaherbalcenter@gmail.com then what's app.+2348149277967.... My advice to any sick men/women out there is simple... Be Always an open book. Be gut wrenching honest about yourself, your situation, and what you are all about. Don't hold anything back. Holding back will get you nowhere...maybe a one way ticket to lonelyville and that is NOT somewhere you want to be. So my final truth...and I'm just starting to grasp this one..

I was infected with HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS in 2011, I went to many hospitals to heal myself but there was no solution, so I was thinking how I can get a solution so that my body can be well. One day I was in the river thinking about where I can go to get a solution. so a lady walked towards me telling me why I'm so sad and I open everything by telling her my problem, she told me she could help me, she introduced me to a doctor who uses herbal medicines to cure the SIMPLEX HERPES VIRUS and gave me your email, so I sent you an email. He told me everything I had to do and also gave me instructions to take, which I followed correctly. Before I knew what was happening after two weeks, the SIMPLEX HERPES VIRUS that was in my body disappeared. therefore, if you also have a broken heart and need help, you can also send an email to {oliha.miraclemedicine@gmail.com}or whatsapp him number: +2349038382931 or Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/drolihamiraclemedicine/
