From the Heart

Cardiac rehab can help your heart's future

Cardiac rehab doesn’t change your past, but it can help you improve your heart’s future. It’s a medically supervised program designed to help improve your cardiovascular health if you have experienced heart attack, heart failure, stenting, valve surgery or heart surgery including a bypass. 

    How women can find time to care for their hearts

    Many women spend so much of their time chasing after others that their own health gets neglected. Did you know 1 in 2 women will die of cardiovascular disease? That’s about 5,000 Irish women every year – making it the number-one killer of women in Ireland and the world.

      Stress and the impact of your health.

      High levels of stress will have an impact on your health, so learning how to manage stress is important for a healthy body and mind. Depending on the cause of your stress, this risk factor may be one you have little control over! However, you can develop ways to cope with stress and therefore reduce its effect on your health.
