“”Studies show heart attacks and strokes can increase this time of year which can make the holiday season an especially dangerous time of year for the millions of Americans with heart disease. Holiday stress, combined with cold weather, increases the risk of heart attacks.”

80-90% of strokes are preventable!

Hold on to that thought.

Know when you are at greatest risk – and why.

Then take action.

Arm yourself with the knowledge – then reduce your risk. Control the controllable factors. Take the tests. Monitor the results.

Christmas can be a time of stress. Over-consumption of fatty, sugary food and alcohol. weight gain. Increased blood pressure. All these are stroke risk factors. This course concentrates on alcohol and stroke risk. Odd though this may seem – this course (which will always be free!) makes the ideal Christmas present for everyone. Anyone can get a stroke – and at Christmas your risks just might increase. This course will help prevent such an awful event happening – and applies equally to ALL holiday times!


Strokes maim, strokes kill – all year round.

80-90% are preventable remember, through diet, exercise, fitness, nutrition, quality sleep etc.

This course focuses in particular, on alcohol.
