A Valentine for Your Heart
Kevin Cleary

Keeping tabs on your heart is the best way to ensure that no issues sneak up and cause you any problems. Finding the perfect gift for someone can be a confusing or difficult endeavor altogether, so is there a way we can combine our concern for someone’s heart health and the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for someone we love? The answer to that question is a resounding yes!! Let us here at HPFY point you in the right direction for a Valentine for your heart, a sort of Happy Heart Day!!

Be Proactive… Be Healthy!!

None of us are clairvoyant or can see the future but being proactive with our healthcare can go a long way to heading off any potential problems. This is especially true when it comes to making sure our hearts stay strong and healthy. There are simple ways to “keep an eye on” our hearts so that potential health problems can be avoided. Some of these potential issues can include:

 

Avoiding these and other potential health issues related to your heart cannot be understated. These heart ailments can become serious issues down the road if not nipped in the bud.

Gifts for Your Heart

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, think about a gift for your heart or a loved one who may benefit from keeping their heart healthy. Your visits to the doctor are a great start for maintaining your heart health, but what about the time in between your appointments? People at risk of heart issues can take control of their heart monitoring and health easily. Some great gift ideas for you or your loved ones can include:

  • Vive Fitness Tracker Mach V: This wearable multifunction fitness tracker can track your heart rate, as well as, keeping track of your fitness goals in order to achieve heart health.
  • iHealth Feel Wireless Blood Pressure Monitor: Easily measure your blood pressure and pulse rate with this monitor that communicates to your smart phone for simple, easy to read tracking of your vital statistics. It can even detect irregular heartbeats!!
  • Creative Health BioSig Mini Insta-Pulse II Handheld Heart Rate Monitor: A convenient and portable way to take your heart rate monitoring to the next level. Take this anywhere you need to go to keep your heart healthy.
  • Edan SE-601 Series Six Channel ECG: With a portable and lightweight design, this unit has auto analyzing and diagnostic software for adults and pediatrics, as well as, offering easy data input and operation due to an alphanumeric keyboard and one touch operation.
  • Olympian Labs Mega Omega-3 Fish Oils Dietary Supplement: Our hearts benefit from the omega-3 fatty acids in fish such as salmon and tuna. This supplement provides omega-3 fatty acids derived from fish found in deep, cold waters such as anchovies, sardines, and mackerel.
  • Zell AED Plus Automated External Defibrillator: For patients that are living with heart problems or may have a history of Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA), this defibrillator is easy to use and a potential lifesaver. It provides feedback to the user to ensure proper use and has audio and visual prompts so this can be used by anyone.
  • TheraBand Latex Free Exercise Band: Exercise is probably the best way to maintain a healthy heart. Resistance band exercises can help control blood sugar levels and lower insulin resistance. That helps prevent Type 2 diabetes mellitus, a major risk factor for heart disease.
 

Valentine’s Day is a time for special gifts for our hearts. Choosing a Valentine for your loved one or your own heart is far more personal and loving than flowers that will die or candy that will last only a short time. Having those who may need help keeping their hearts healthy around longer is well worth a Valentine’s Day gift. Keep in mind that men and women have different needs when it comes to heart health, so be sure to understand which aids would be beneficial to each specific person. Happy Valentine’s Day!!
