As muscles go, the human heart is one of the most vital for health. No vacations for this workhorse muscle system! Unlike other muscles that take breaks when not in use, like legs, such as legs when a person is lying down, the heart never stops pumping.

The heart must circulate blood constantly and consistently to maintain well-being. Blood flows from the heart, delivering oxygen and nutrients. Heart health, therefore, i ..read more

So much of Western medicine seems reactive: a patient comes in with a complaint, a pain, an issue, and then tests are run. Suggestions are given. Treatments are offered. But all these effects are in response to an issue. What if we explored health from a different perspective, from the basis of preventing issues before they arise? Preventative care isn't a new idea; it often includes a healthy diet, regular physical activity, and wellness checkups at a medical doctor's office.
