A good night sleep with a minimum of 7 hours is important in keeping the heart healthy.

Did you know that the lack of sleep has been linked to the development of heart disease (even in otherwise healthy individuals) or the worsening of symptoms in an already present condition?

Studies show that poor sleep hygiene can further be associated with:

  • high blood pressure,
  • arrhythmia,
  • weight problems,
  • calcium buildup and
  • arterial stiffness.

The three main categories of sleeping problems are:

  • sleep deprivation (lifestyle issue),
  • insomnia (different physical and/or mental causes), and
  • sleep apnea (breathing issues during sleep).

Therefore, it is important to remedy the sleeping problems in order to keep the heart healthy. Book an Appointment for a Call: and learn how to keep your heart healthy in a way that is tailed to YOU.
