We at Coast Spas are very concerned about your health. It is for that reason, we are going to be talking to you a little bit about your cardiovascular health. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women in America. 1 in 4 Americans die from heart disease every year, roughly 630,000 people a year. To frame this as a more urgent matter, someone in America has a heart attack every 40 seconds.
Heart disease is caused by narrowed or blocked vessels that can lead to heart attacks, strokes, and angina. The side effects are terrifying as the results can lead to sudden death in many cases.
A high consumption of bad fat, sodium, alcohol, inactivity, and even diabetes are all factors to blame for the onset of the disease. So, it’s no secret that nutritious eating, a regular exercise regimen, along with healthy lifestyle choices can reduce the risk.
In today’s fast paced world, we seldom have time or the energy to be consistent with these best practices. A soak in a hot tub with powerful stops that clock and lets you take the time for yourself and family to sit down and enjoy some healthy eating and some water resistance exercises, while catching up with your loved ones. You will even find that you will get a more restful night sleep!
What’s promising as an added benefit, according to Dr.William Kormos from Havard’s Health Watch, soaking in a hot tub can help increase your heart rate and lower blood pressure. That’s right, having your body underwater makes your heart work harder helping it stay in shape. Research has shown hot water can cause body temperature to rise which causes blood vessels to dilate, resulting in improved circulation. Recent studies conducted by the Mayo Clinic has found passive heating is less stressful to the body compared to light exercise.
Hydrotherapy has been proven to be an effective method in stress management and can lower the risk of heart disease. We often tend to reach for a glass of wine or vices to manage our daily worries and life’s woes. Once natural alternatives are used, your health is greatly improved by simply not relying on negative behaviours.
With Coast Spas’ unique 24-inch waterfall and targeted hydrotherapeutic jets, tension is released in your muscles permitted yourself to relax in a natural way. After all, at Coast Spas we believe Stress Is Water Soluble.
At the End of the Day, lifestyle changes in combination with hydrotherapy in a commercial grade hot tub can help improve cardiovascular health.
