heart check

Join us to mark World Heart Day on September 29 by taking advantage of our healthy heart special offer.

Until the end of  October, you can get an ECG, cholesterol check, blood pressure measure, BMI assessment and consultation with our nurse for only €75. This important examination could uncover hidden heart problems and stop you falling victim to the world’s biggest killer.

Heart Disease is responsible for 17.3 million deaths every year, with numbers predicted to rise to 23 million by 2030 if nothing is done.

Yet many of these deaths are preventable. This year, World Heart Day is asking everyone to look at their environment and see what they can  do to reduce their risks of heart disease.

For those of us living on the Costa Blanca where the air is relatively clean and we do not have serious pollution problems, this is really very easy. It may be as simple as looking at your home and clearing out unhealthy food and replacing it with healthy food. Or, it may mean spending less time in front of the TV and doing gentle exercise instead.

Or, perhaps you need to look at your work environment. Can you spend less time sitting at your desk? What about walking up stairs instead of taking the lift, or maybe you can walk or cycle to work instead of driving.

Your social environment could include keeping a check on how much alcohol you consume, quitting smoking if you are a smoker, and avoiding passive smoking by staying out of smoky places.

Or, make exercise part of your social life by taking up a sport or joining a gym.

Whatever you do to mark World Heart Day, don’t become a statistic,  take action this World Heart Day and improve your heart health.

And let us help you to find out just how healthy your heart  is with our special offer heart check. These checks really do save lives. So book your appointment now. Just call or email us.
