We know that simple lifestyle changes can help prevent heart disease, but now scientific research has discovered we can also help reverse existing damage

AREMEDY FOR DAMAGED HEARTS has never been so sorely needed. Every three minutes, someone in the UK dies from a heart attack –and around 30% of all heart attacks are fatal, according to the British Heart Foundation. Moreover, there are currently seven million people in the UK living with cardiovascular disease (CVD), an umbrella term for all diseases of the heart and circulation. This includes coronary heart disease (CHD), as well as stroke, heart failure, cardiomyopathy and atrial fibrillation.

Many of us have at least one risk factor for CHD and most of these risk factors are lifestyle related. They’re simply a result of the everyday choices we make about what we eat and drink, how much we exercise and whether or not we smoke.

We make these choices without much conscious effort and often put off actioning any necessary changes because we’re too busy. And yet, over time, making unhealthy choices each and every day is leading to conditions such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol and being overweight. It’s in our power to change these habits, though – and our health can benefit hugely as a result.
