The Impact of Body Change and Heart Disease

The Impact of Body Change and Heart Disease

By Dr. Brian Bartholomew

Did you know that a 15 pound weight gain doubles your risk of Type 2 Diabetes? And a 22 pound weight gain increase heart attack risk by 75%?

Obesity doubles your risk of Heart Failure, 30% in Women and 25% in Men. And being overweight triples your risk of breast cancer in women.

Chiropractic adjustments can help with an increase of parasympathetic stimulation, which helps slower the pulse and helps bring less anxiety and worry.

A reduced heart rate can help reduce the risk of heart attack and other cardiovascular diseases.

With chiropractic care, we truly do care about your heart health.
