get heart healthy

Just because Valentine's Day is behind us, doesn't mean we should forego all matters of the heart. February is American Heart Month, created to raise awareness about heart disease, the leading cause of death for both men and women in the U.S. According to the Center for Disease Control, about every 25 seconds, an American will have a coronary event, and about every minute someone will die from one. The best weapons you have to fight heart disease are a healthy diet and lifestyle, and that’s where the spa comes in. “Spas are the perfect place to learn heart healthy lifestyle techniques from relaxation methods to cooking tips,” said ISPA President Lynne McNees. “The No. 1 reason people visit the spa is to reduce/relieve stress.” Spas can educate you on preventative care that can lead to an overall better lifestyle. Check out these amazing spa packages, designed specially for American Heart Month: Cal-a-Vie Health Spa, Vista, CA – Heart Health Week programs include nutrition talks from Linda Illingworth, resident Registered Dietitian, and a presentation from Dr. Mark Drucker, the Medical Director of the Center for Advanced Medicine in San Diego.
