Is Your Heart Healthy?

By January 12, 2017General

Ladies, are you taking care of your heart?

Welcome, I’m Elaine Starling, and it surprised me to discover that women have very different heart attack symptoms than men.  Women and doctors are challenged to identify heart disease symptoms because they are different that what you hear about for men.

As many as 35% of women’s heart attacks are unnoticed or unreported.

As a consequence, Women are less likely to receive support to prevent heart attacks.  Doctors don’t take women’s heart disease symptoms seriously because that’s not what they’re used to looking for.

The biggest concern is that heart disease is the number one killer of women.  In fact, six times as many women will die from heart disease as breast cancer.  Studies show that heart attacks are more likely to be fatal for women than men.

It’s important to know your risk for heart disease and what you can do about it. For example, do you know which nutritional supplements support a healthy heart?

Please save a life and share women’s heart attack symptoms.

  • Pain in the upper abdominal region
  • Uncontrollable pressure in the chest, neck, shoulder or left arm
  • Pain spreading to neck, jaw, shoulders or arms
  • Vague discomfort or heaviness
  • Feeling lightheaded or faint
  • Feeling nauseated unrelated to diet
  • Having shortness of breath without exertion
  • Feeling fatigued no matter how much rest you get
  • Sweating when you haven’t had any exercise or exertion
  • Persistent belching, bloating, or toothache
  • Joint pain, back pain or heart burn

You see what I mean?  It seems so strange that these can be symptoms of a heart attack in women.  It’s no wonder women’s heart attacks are often ignored or misdiagnosed.

Please share this information with as many women as possible – and share it with your doctor too.
