Aspirin has long been touted as a way of preventing heart disease. Because it is available over the counter, millions of Americans are likely taking aspirin as a way of preventing heart disease without their family physician knowing it.
There’s a federal government task force called the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force that recently released a recommendation stating that men and women ages 50 to 69-years-old who are at increased risk for cardiovascular disease should take a low-dose aspirin daily. The aspirin is said to help prevent heart attack, stroke and colorectal cancer. In the 50 to 59-year-old age group, the benefits of aspirin are said to be strongest as the dosing would help a 10 percent of greater 10-year cardiovascular risk which refers to those most at risk for heart attack or stroke 10 years out.
Preventing Heart Disease
Not all professionals believe an aspirin a day keeps the doctor away. Heart disease is a lifestyle illness, according to CEO Sara Soulati of Global Cardio Care, Inc. Sara has been a devout vegan since 16-years-old, and eats a diet rich with plant-based nutrition, experiences daily exercise, meditation, and yoga. She believes strongly in the reduction of lifestyle risk factors that contribute to long-term cardiac risk.
When people modify lifestyle and reduce risk factors for disease, then heart disease can be prevented.
- Heart disease is a circulatory illness, and that’s why Enhanced External Counterpulation (EECP) combined with the Sara Soulati Health For Life Program is a powerful and comprehensive disease prevention and lifestyle modification program.
- With plant-based nutrition and exercise, people can seize control of their body’s overall health and reduce the onset of diseases impacted by aging.
- When people visit Global Cardio Care centers, they will experience the Sara Soulati Method of EECP which combines her program and EECP therapy together for greater results.
- At the end of the day, however, if someone is seeking an easy remedy to preventing heart disease, like popping a low-dose aspirin daily, that is a recipe for failure.
No one can live life without being accountable to their body’s need for healthy foods and exercise. No one can live a sedentary life and eat fat-laden foods with chemicals from processing. Food must be fresh and organic and plant based to keep arteries clear and supple.
Side Effects of Daily Aspirin
When a government body delivers a recommendation to consumers to take a low-dose aspirin for primary prevention for people who have not known heart disease, leading providers also get involved in the story. Take a look at this story from Mayo Clinic about the risks and benefits of daily aspirin intake.
The panel’s recommendations were not well received because some doctors believe more aspirin intake leads to higher risk of bleeding.
Before you decide to take an aspirin as a way of preventing heart disease, consult your physician, look at your nutrition plan, and ensure you are exercising. Do you really need that pill?
