Your Heart, Your Body, Your Life
Boston Heart Lifestyle Program: Improving Patient Outcomes
Everyone hopes to have a long life ('Living Long') and experience a full and healthy life ('Living Well'). Wellness is a dynamic process that changes with age and is influenced by genetics, lifestyle habits and circumstance. Learning the current state of your wellness improves your knowledge base, helps you set goals and empowers you to make better choices for a longer and healthier life.
My goal: Give my patients an accurate picture of their physical wellness and an understanding of the role that cholesterol, inflammation, plaque and their genetics play in heart disease, stroke and diabetes. Further, understanding the importance of nutrition, weight control, exercise, smoking, stress, and blood pressure, is essential for an optimal quality of life and improved sense of well-being. With this foundation I can provide patients with a proactive lifestyle plan and continuing support that, if adapted, will have a dramatic effect on lowering their lifetime risks of having a future cardio-vascular event and to achieve their goal of "Living Long and Living Well."
