Live a more heart healthy lifestyle with help from the Marshfield Clinic and Ministry Health Care heart care team. Your primary care physician and cardiologist can give you the support you need to break unhealthy habits and establish new patterns that can improve your heart health – and your quality of life. Customized assistance from cardiac rehab specialists and nutritionists is also available.

Making lifestyle changes isn’t easy. Don’t be disheartened by setbacks and difficult hurdles – remember that bad habits that took a lifetime to develop might take repeated attempts to turn around. Every time you try to make a change, you gain some benefits of living a more heart-healthy life, even if it’s just for a short time. The only way to truly fail is to give up. Lowering cholesterol or blood pressure numbers by even a little bit is a positive change. Similarly, losing just a small amount of weight can make a real difference in your overall health.
