How Heartbreak Causes Cardiovascular Disease
Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death for men and women in the United States (and soon the world). Yet, most times, cardiovascular disease is self-inflicted through poor diet, high stress and, I would argue, the lack of loving, nurturing relationships.
In this video, I explain how a loss of a partner, a bad breakup or an all-around "heartbreak" plays a role in cardiovascular heath.
Cardiovascular disease includes heart attacks, strokes, and a number of other conditions affecting the structure and function of the heart. It's understood how a poor diet, lack of exercise and stressful situations lead to heart failure, but the emotional side of the problem is often overlooked.
Another risk factor that is often overlooked is menopause. Menopause, and its accompanying drop in heart-protecting estrogen, increases the risk for heart disease. Early menopause (starting at age 45 or younger) is a risk factor. Researchers found in an 8-year study that women who enter menopause early were twice as likely to suffer from heart disease and stroke.
