I do not do things that make me sweat. Nope, that’s not me. I do not run. I do not go to the gym. I just do not have enough time or energy to use an “exercise program.”
Well, not everyone thinks so. There are many athletes who are focused on healthy lifestyles and improving their performance in their chosen field. They push themselves to their limit to be the best they can. Sometimes, the more elite athletes use lab testing to see if they are overtraining and using the right nutrition.
For those of us who are not prime athletes, we can use testing too. A simple wellness test will identify areas that may put you at risk for further disease before you have any symptoms. While you can still take action and prevent disease. Just like the athlete, it will help you be the healthiest you can be.
TheAmerican Heart Association estimates that 80% of heart disease and strokes could be prevented. Yet it is the number one killer in America and costs approximately one billion dollars a day. The trajectory is rising. By 2035 it is predicted that 45% of Americans will have cardiovascular disease which will cost more than $1 trillion a year.1
Wow, 45% of Americans will have heart disease? What the heck? Could you be in that 45%? Everyone is different. Your risks may not be the same as others, but what if it is?. So what should you do?
