Awareness of one’s own health is important. Eating healthy and exercising enough are not enough! Steps must be taken to make sure the body is in proper working order. Just as one would take their car to the mechanic when it “just doesn’t sound right” or “doesn’t drive right,” one must also “listen” to the body’s signals of possible problems. Health Screening by Heart Watch IV is an excellent beginning, and will be at Mollie Stone’s in January. Keep reading for more information about these screenings.
