  • 1.  Cardiac rehab

    Posted 14 days ago
    My suggestion is that all who are interested attend a cardiac rehabilitation program either in person or remote.   

    Why   We do as much for your head as we do with your body. 
    What I mean is you will exercise 2-3 days a week 
    you will be others with the same problems 
    you will be educated on your medication, safe exercise, diet, and risk factor reduction
    You will meet 2 -3 times a week with a professional who is knowledgeable, and able to listen to your issues.
    You will learn how to  care for yourself and your heart condition 

    If there is no facility close at hand - during this Covid - 19 pandemic up till next year services can be offered remotely on your phone or computer at your home.  Go to the iinternet and look for remote / zoom cardiac rehab services.  Cleveland Clinic and others are offering this service till next year.

    Also:
    Most insurance plans will cover several week's sessions.
    If you start cardiac rehab and really feel it's not needed, you can always cancel.
