Let’s get practical here. Not everybody needs extensive medical testing to evaluate their heart health. But everyone should have ways to check on how they’re doing.

So, here’s a quick way to check your heart health.

👉The Stairs Test 👈

Set a stopwatch and start climbing stairs. Climb at a fast pace without stopping, but don’t run. If it takes you more than 90 seconds to climb 4 flights of stairs (60 stairs), your heart health may not be at its best.

This comes from research presented at the European Society of Cardiology conference in 2020. They cited a study that showed the stairs test correlated with results from more advanced tests of heart health.

So, if you have access to 4 flights of stairs, give it a try. If it takes you too long, it may be time to see a naturopath to improve your heart health..
