Heart Health

Our Wellness Practice focuses on our patients’ general medical needs. That includes heart disease prevention and treatment.

 

At Judy L. Bourget Cosmetic Surgery and Wellness Practice in Dana Point, California, we provide full medical and aesthetic services to our patients. Our primary goal is to keep our patients healthy – and feeling and looking their best. Heart health is a key part of Dr. Bourget’s practice.

Doctor Bourget is a strong believer in healthy living as the best way to prevent heart and other health problems from occurring. That’s why we help our patients develop healthy diet and lifestyle choices so they can live a long life.

At Judy L. Bourget Cosmetic Surgery and Wellness Practice, we work to promote heart health so our patients won’t have to combat heart disease and other health problems as they get older. We believe a healthy diet combined with regular exercise and proper sleeping habits are key to ensuring you, and your heart, remain in good condition for years to come.

Doctor Bourget works with patients individually to help them develop plans to stay healthy and avoid common health problems including:

  • High blood pressure.
  • High cholesterol levels.
  • Other conditions that can lead to heart disease.

At Judy L. Bourget Cosmetic Surgery and Wellness Practice, we offer preventive measures that can help you lower the risk of developing heart disease. These include the latest and most effective blood work labs and methods to identify genetic and biological markers that can detect heart problems early – before they become serious, or even life-threatening.

Some keys are regular blood pressure screenings and checks on cholesterol levels.
Lifestyle changes can make dramatic improvements in your heart and overall health. Some steps Dr. Bourget can assist patients with include:

  • Smoking cessation: Smoking cigarettes can thin arteries and reduce oxygen in your blood. Smoking boosts blood pressure and makes your heart work harder. While smoking even a few cigarettes each day is bad for you, the more cigarettes you smoke, the higher your risk becomes for developing heart disease.
  • Exercise: Patients should exercise as often as they can. Between 30 minutes and an hour is ideal. Doctor Bourget can help you get started on an exercise regimen, even if you have been physically inactive for years. You can start small: Gardening or taking the stairs instead of using the elevator can help get you on your way.
  • Diet: Doctor Bourget knows the importance of diet and nutrition. We can help you create plans that are heart healthy. Remember, obesity often leads to heart disease.
  • Sleep: Most adults require at about seven to nine hours of sleep per night. If you have trouble sleeping, it can be bad for your heart. Doctor Bourget can help patients develop healthy sleeping habits that are good for their hearts – and their overall sense of well-being.

To begin your path to heart health and a long life, you need a good doctor to help show you the way. Contact Judy L. Bourget Cosmetic Surgery and Wellness Practice today to learn how we can help improve your heart health and reduce your risk for heart disease.
