Preventative Health

What is Preventative Health?

Focusing on preventative health strategies to prevent illness before the onset, is one of the many strengths of our Canadian Health Care System. This involves not only learning about one’s own cardiovascular health, but also implementing daily habits designed to reduce the likelihood of developing cardiovascular disease. This includes consuming a heart-healthy diet, daily exercise, adequate sleep, smoking cessation, and monitoring cholesterol and blood pressure levels. And rest assured at the Chahal Cardiovascular Centre, we will not recommend anything that we don’t practice ourselves as we serve as advocates of your health, leading our community by example.
