improving your Cardiac Health

Heart Disease

Dietary and lifestyle changes are two of the biggest factors that can improve your cardiac health. Working with a registered dietitian empowers you to implement healthy food and lifestyle habits and reduce the likelihood of heart disease later in life. Increasing fruit and vegetable consumption, decreasing saturated fats, being physically active, and reducing stress are just a few factors correlated with prevention. A Health Loft dietitian can partner with you to make these positive health habits a reality through listening to your specific needs and creating an individualized healthy heart diet and regimen. Your Registered Dietitian will help you overcome your unique obstacles to living a healthy lifestyle and enjoy a successful journey.

Dietitian Intervention after Diagnosis of Heart Disease

Once diagnosed, partnering with a dietitian to reduce or relieve symptoms is a vital part of care.  Many times, your physician does not have the time to go into how to care for your heart condition on a daily basis. This is where having a dietitian as part of your personal health care team comes into play. A Health Loft dietitian can work with you and your care team to help implement heart-healthy dietary changes into your everyday routine. Though it may seem scary to start eating again after surgery or after a hospital scare, a dietitian has the education and resources to empower you to take charge of your health, and to love what you eat while still supporting your health goals. Whether you are wanting to prevent heart disease, or you need nutrition support during, we are here to provide you with science-based, up-to-date nutrition tactics to support your goals.
