Is it time you thought more about food prescriptions vs. pharmaceuticals? Should you seek a doctor who is more concerned about your health rather than lining his/her own pockets?
Once you find out what your resting heart rate is, you’ll have a better idea of your level of health. You’ll know where you stand and if you need to make adjustments to your lifestyle.
If you want a healthy resting heart rate, there must be some exercise/training involved. As the research shows, endurance training is the best way to do that. You don’t have to train like an elite athlete. You need to be consistent at a moderate level spread throughout the week.
Having a healthy resting heart rate is important. It’s your best chance of living a life free from disease. You can’t start too soon. I believe we’re going to see all types of morbidity skyrocket soon because our culture craves convenience. And convenience lends itself to inactivity.
