Its All About Your Heart….Health

February is Heart Month. The month to bring some awareness to Heart Health.

This is not just a male issue.

Did you know that Heart Disease and Stroke is the #1 cause of premature death in women in Canada? Surprising, I know. One would have thought it was Breast Cancer. Heart health in women just isn’t discussed as much but it should be. 58% of all women who experience heart attack symptoms, go unrecognized.
