“10,000 Heart to Hearts” to Help Senior Women Fight Top Health Threat

Quickly approaching middle age, my heart health is extremely important to me. I know that heart disease is a big killer in women, especially as we get older. Many women don't realize how aging makes you more susceptible to heart disease. That is why teams from Brookdale senior living communities nationwide-US, are fanning out to personally alert women 65 and over to their increased risk, and provide resources to fight it. The company hopes to reach 10,000 older women through their “10,000 Heart to Hearts,” campaign that began on Feb. 1st. 
“Cardiac disease kills more women than all cancers combined,” said Brookdale chief medical officer Kevin O'Neil, M.D., F.A.C.P. “On average, women develop heart disease 10 years later than men, with their first heart attack occurring at age 70.”

That is a scary statistic to see cardiac issues kill more woman than all cancers combined!


There are better food and drinks you should eat that can help your heart. Beans, pomegranates, cinnamon, blueberries, tomatoes, black tea, green tea, red wine, nuts, and dark chocolate to list a few.

Here is a link to download a heart-healthy cookbook from Brookdale. It is great for getting you started on a healthier lifestyle regarding foods.


Being optimistic also contributes to a healthy heart. Pessimism causes stress, which hurts your heart. Also forms of exercise are great to keep you in shape and keep your heart healthy. If you're like me, and not a fan of gyms, try dancing around your home while dusting. A few minutes will get your pulse up and pumping good stuff to your heart.

To schedule a visit, contact the nearest Brookdale community, go to brookdale.com or call toll-free 866- 869-7711. Older women and others concerned about heart disease are invited to ask questions of Brookdale chief medical officer Dr. O’Neil in a free webinar on Feb. 18th. Register at www.brookdale.com/webinars/heart-health-senior-women. Also check them out on FacebookTwitterLinkedIn and Youtube.

REVIEW:
I sorta hated the beginning.
Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see.
It doesn't take long to get light though.
Thankfully.
Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too.
Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would be like if everyone thought you were o…

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…
