South Palm Cardiovascular Associates: Palm Beach Heart Doctors Publish a New Article

Palm Beach Heart Doctors: Stress and the Heart

March 14th, 2015. Boynton Beach, FL. South Palm Cardiovascular Associates is publishing a new article that discusses the effect of stress on the heart. According to these Palm Beach cardiologists, stress causes the heart to pump faster, raises blood pressure, constricts blood vessels, and speeds up the development of atherosclerosis.

In this article, the Palm Beach heart doctors present a number of valuable tips for reducing stress, as a way to help keep the heart healthy. “These tips can help you learn to relax more, get better sleep, cut back on things that make stress worse (like caffeine and alcohol), get over grudges, and laugh more, all of which help to keep the heart healthy.”

This group of Delray Beach cardiologists hopes that when people learn more about the risk that stress poses to their heart health, they will begin to follow these suggestions to lower their stress levels. To learn more about heart disease and how to prevent it, see the center’s website at:
