The 60 second home heart health test that's a more powerful predictor of heart-attack risk than your doctor's test

by , 07 March 2013

New research shows that 80% of doctor's visits may be completely unnecessary! The common culprit - follow up tests. And they're costing you tens of thousands in unnecessary medical bills each year - not to mention the stress they add to you and your loved ones. Luckily, when it comes to heart attacks, there's a simple heart health test you can do at home that could help you spot a problem before it happens…

Studies show that your resting heart rate (RHR) is a BETTER predictor of cardiovascular disease than all the other fancy tests your doctor runs, says peakhealthadvocate.com.

And it’s easy to do measure at home…

Test your RHR to protect yourself from heart attacks

Sit down and relax for ten minutes or so. Then put your fingers on your wrist where you can feel your heart pulse, or against the carotid artery in your neck. Keep your watch nearby (make sure it has a second hand) and count the number of beats your heart registers in a 60-second span.

This number is your RHR.

And voila, all that’s left for you to do is interpret your results.

What your RHR results tell you…

Studies show that the optimum RHR is 65 beats per minute and lower, reports FSP Health.

If you find yourself on the high side of things – with a RHR greater than 70 beats per minute – you have an 85% increased risk of dying of a heart attack!

If you have an RHR in excess of 70 beats per minute, don’t freak out! It’s never too late to fix it.

There are several powerful – and even pleasant – ways to make a big reduction in your RHR: Indulge in regular exercise, eat a Mediterranean diet consisting of olive oil; tomatoes; and red wine and stop smoking.

Living a healthy lifestyle will not only improve your RHR, it’ll also help protect your heart from a heart attack.

What are you waiting for? Take the test now so you know where on the scale your heart health stands.
