Pottstown, PA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 02/20/2018 -- Though the heart is one of the most important organs in the body, most Pennsylvanians can be doing much more to protect their own. This February, the team at Community Health & Dental Care's medical care office and discount pharmacy in Pottstown is excited to celebrate American Heart Month by educating the public on how to manage their heart health and recognize the signs of a heart attack.
As one of the leading family healthcare centers in Montgomery County, Community Health & Dental Care has seen firsthand the effects that even small lifestyle changes can have when it comes to heart health. Residents looking to improve the strength of their heart are encouraged to take steps to lower their blood pressure this month by exercising more, losing weight and focusing on consuming nutrient-rich fish, whole grains and vegetables.
In the event of a heart attack, every second counts. Community Health & Dental Care is encouraging everyone to memorize the most common symptoms of an oncoming heart attack, which can include a squeezing pain in the chest, shortness of breath, nausea, vomiting and sweating. Residents must call 911 immediately if they or someone they know is exhibiting these symptoms.
Protecting the heart is a lifelong effort, and there's never been a better time for Pennsylvanians to take control of their health than right now. Anyone who is interested in learning more about the benefits of increased heart health is encouraged to call Community Health & Dental Care today at 800-589-6212 for more information.
