Naturopathic Corner: Keeping your heart in check

Dr. Samantha Ristimaki, BSc, ND
Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine

samantha ristimakiHeart disease is one of the leading killers for Canadians. Rather than dealing with the issues when they arise, implement a heart healthy lifestyle in order to prevent high blood pressure and elevated cholesterol.

1. Choose fish over red meat
Fish contains omega-3 fatty acids which can help prevent heart disease. Best choices include US caught tilapia, herring, rainbow trout and pacific wild salmon.

2. Lots of colour
Vegetables with colour contain the most antioxidants which help protect cells and prevent damage to blood vessel walls.

3. You can have your Chocolate
Pure dark chocolate contains catechins which also function as an antioxidant within the body.

4. Skip the salt
Processed food rich in salt (sodium) can cause you to retain water and your blood pressure to rise.

5. Walk, walk, walk
Like any other muscle in the body, the heart is a muscle that needs to be trained. Walking is a gentle, sustainable form of cardiovascular exercise.

6. Slow and steady wins the race
Implement life long changes rather than starting a fad diet. Years of healthy eating and exercise will do far more good than a few weeks on a fad diet.

Please call us at 905.465.4595 for more information
and to book your appointment with Dr. Samantha Ristimaki.

Why Klean Kanteen?
Klean Kanteen® provides choices that promote healthy living with respect for the environment. We believe that we can transform the world in which we live by promoting environmental awareness and conservation.

Recent studies have shown that many plastic water bottles including Lexan® bottles, leach toxins, such as Bisphenol A (BPA). These studies have linked BPA to breast cancer and reproductive mutations.

The stainless steel in your Kanteen is the high quality food-grade stainless steel that goes through an electropolishing process to smooth the surface. Klean Kanteen stainless is 100 percent non-leaching and toxin free, making it a safe, healthy alternative to plastic or lined metal containers.
