The heart beats about 2.5 billion times over an average lifetime, pushing millions of gallons of blood to every part of the body. This steady flow carries with it oxygen, fuel, hormones, other compounds, and a host of essential cells. It also whisks away the waste products of metabolism. When the heart stops, essential functions fail, some almost instantly.
Given the heart’s never-ending workload, it’s a wonder it performs so well, for so long, for so many people. The health of your central nervous system is intrinsically linked to good heart function and, with today’s many stressors, it is essential that we keep all systems in good working order. Chiropractic care along with a healthy lifestyle will help achieve optimal heart health.
Happy Valentine’s Day !
