Statistics show that a beating heart is evident in a fetus 22 to 23 days after conception. The baby will not be born for another seven or eight months, and yet the heart is already doing its job. From the time our heart begins beating until the time it stops, it has one of the most important jobs in our body. The heart pumps the blood to all the other organs, the heart regulates the flow so that our body has exactly what it needs all of the time. At the very least, we need to be taking good care of that all important organ.
Most people do not give heart health a second thought, until they need to. We should be taking care of our hearts so that we never need to see a heart specialist. Unfortunately once heart damage is done, most of the time it cannot be reversed. It can be treated and dealt with, but not reversed. Take charge of your heart health before anything happens to make you.
We all know that we should not be abusing our bodies. Maybe it is time to stop talking about it and start doing it. Stop smoking, it is terribly harmful to most of our body, but especially to the heart. Smoking blocks arteries, the all important pathways for transporting the blood to our heart so that it can do its work. To block the pathway is to cause heart disease. Try to take off the extra weight. Carrying around extra weight puts a strain on the heart, making its job more difficult, thereby slowing us down and beginning the process of heart disease. Do not take any illicit drugs. Obviously putting something into your body that does not belong there can cause a myriad of problems.
Take care of your heart, so that the beat can go on, and on, and on.
