HEART HEALTH

The hardest-working muscle in your body is your heart. So it’s no wonder that heart hearth is such an important health concern for all Australians. Hypertension, amongst other conditions like angina, coronary heart disease, heart attack, irregular heartbeat and heart valve disorders are just some of the many problems of heart health.

Factors that contribute to developing heart disease include:

  • History of heart disease in the family
  • High blood cholesterol and/or pressure
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Depression and stress

Our pharmacists can provide you with effective heart health advice and recommendations, including FREE blood pressure checks.
 
We understand heart disease can be prevented through simple measures, such as:

  • Adopting a physically active lifestyle. Start small, like taking brisk walks a few times a week or cycling at your local park
  • Eating nutritious food – incorporate grains, lots of vegetables and fruit into your diet
  • Moderating alcohol consumption
  • Avoid smoking
  • Effective stress management

When it comes to the heart, we are here to help. Additionally, The Heart Foundation has great suggestions and information about how you can improve your heart health.
