Heart Disease Kills 27 People in Ireland Every Day

Cardiovascular disease is Irelands greatest killer with almost 10,000 people dying every year from conditions such as coronary heart disease and congestive cardiac failure (heart failure)IET® cerebral (brain) conditions such as stroke; and peripheral (limb) conditions such as peripheral vascular disease. The main base cause of heart disease is atherosclerosis whereby blood vessels narrow or become completely blocked. It is most dangerous when it affects the blood supply to the heart, causing angina or heart attack, or the blood supply to the brain, causing stroke.

As stated previously, heart disease is the main cause of death in Ireland. Even though there have been significant advances over recent decades, death rates for cardiovascular disease continue to compare unfavourably with other developed countries. Heart disease is a substantial contributor to shorter lifespan in Irish people compared to that of many neighbouring countries.

Deaths from ischemic heart disease including heart attack was rising up to the 1970s when it peaked at 54% of Irish deaths in 1974. Since the mid-1970s the trend has been heading downwards. Death rates in Ireland from stroke have been declining steadily since the 1970s and the mortality rate from stroke is slightly below the European average. However, poor risk factor profiles, such as increasing obesity and diabetes in the population, now suggest a potential reversal of the previous decade’s mortality achievements.

Stroke in Ireland

Every year up to 10,000 Irish people have a stroke and of those about one fifth die. This is a greater number of deaths than breast cancer, prostate cancer and bowel cancer all together. Approximately 30,000 people in Ireland are living with a range of disabilities as a direct result of a stroke. This makes stroke the third highest cause of death in Ireland and stroke is the single largest cause of acquired disability.

"Current cardiovascular disease risk profiles in Ireland, coupled with international trends, must now provide a national ‘wake-up call’ to the health sector and beyond – that the cardiovascular health of the nation is in a precarious state. Cardiovascular health needs to be robustly addressed at both population and individual level."

"I am delighted to be able to share with you the products that I use and recommend, and the knowledge that I have learnt over the years, that has brought me health, happiness and success.

I feel that if we can all start to regain our independence and self-confidence we will make this world a better place for ourselves as well as many others. The journey starts with yourself and with your health. I completed my first healing course in the 1990's which centred on enhancing energy flow through the body in order to encourage circulation and so, healing to take place.

Since then I have been developing and maintaining a simple approach to optimum living. I believe that we must always blend both mental and physical techniques to achieve success. I have studied CranioSacral Therapy, Bio-Testing Therapy, Sound & vibrational healing, Access Consciousness and Pilates.

This diverse range of knowledge, techniques, and health-giving products allows me to help my clients to unlock their inner capacity for healthy and successful living. What I offer is truly unique."
