The CDC reports that approximately 610,000 people die of heart disease in the United States every year. This figure accounts for 1 in every 4 deaths or 25% of the population.
Despite this staggering statistic, there are a variety of options and opportunities that exist for men who are interested in taking control over their health and long-term future.
Preventing Heart Disease and Cancer
Heart disease and most forms of cancer are either preventable or can be treated when detected at earlier stages of development.
At 35 Years Old
Men who are at least 35 years old should start scheduling regular checkups with their Chiropractor to have their blood pressure and cholesterol tested. If you happen to have a family history that sees multiple members suffer from diabetes, heart disease, or cancer, you should start visiting your doctor even earlier.
If you are an active cigarette smoker, quitting as soon as possible is the most effective way to prevent the development of lung cancer and heart disease.
Cigarettes are well documented for causing a variety of health problems, including:
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol
- Kidney failure
- Bladder cancer
- Hip fractures
- Coronary heart disease
- Blindness, cataracts.
At 45 Years Old
At this age, men should start to get tested for prostate and colon cancer.
These conditions can be prevented with the inclusion of the following habits, in your every day routine:
- Eat healthy;
- Reduce stress;
- Use alcohol in moderation;
- Exercise daily.
Staying On Track
Once you’ve begun to incorporate the previously mentioned habits into your normal routine, make sure that you remain diligent and focused for the long-term.
Speak with your Chiropractor about how often you should schedule a screening or examination to monitor your health and prevent these types of conditions from developing.
Make sure that regardless of what extenuating circumstances exist in your life, you stay committed to receiving Chiropractic adjustments on a monthly basis, while also exercising at least three times a week.
