Cardiac Arrest/Heart attack

by admin_amy | Published March 27, 2021

There are many factors that go into effect when talking about cardiac arrest, heart attack or stroke but there is no doubt that the heart is an electrically controlled muscle. That is why sometimes people need a pacemaker once the heart gets weak to create an electrical impulse to jump start the heart if needed. But, why does the heart get weak as we get older? Diet could definitely play a part along with weight because the more weight you have, the harder the heart has to work to pump blood throughout the body. Hardening of the arteries leads to high blood pressure because, if the arteries are stiff, they don’t stretch as easily so it takes more “pressure” to push blood through stiff arteries. One step to seeing what you need to do to make the body, therefore the heart, function better is blood work which we offer complete panels to asses all aspects of health to see where you are deficient. Blood tests never lie. But, another option you may not of thought of is a full hormone assessment (some hormone testing included in blood work and some requires saliva testing which we offer). Could a decline in hormones effect your heart muscle activity and not just your reproductive muscles? If your arteries are getting stiff impeding blood flow to areas of the body, do you see how that could lead to erectile dysfunction? Wouldn’t you rather normalize hormones before it effects your sexual health OR your cardiac health? The heart AND the penis are BOTH muscled effected by hormones EQUALLY! Don’t wait until heart disease possibly due to hormone loss effects your ability to have enjoyable sexual interactions with your mate.
