Before you get too worried about any of these common aging markers, its important to put these findings into perspective, says Stephen Devries, MD, cardiologist and associate professor at Northwesterns Bluhm Cardiovascular Institute and executive director of the Gaples Institute for Integrative Cardiology. He explains that while many similar studies have found a slight association between outward appearance and heart health, he believes that the connection isnt strong enough to be cause for concern for most people.
More often than not, heart disease is actually a silent problem, he says, but, there are some subtle signs that can indicate poor cardiovascular health.

Devries adds that if you incorporate 30 minutes of light exercise most days of the week and avoid smoking, you can improve the benefits to an 80 percent reduction of heart problems.

Early in his career, cardiologist Stephen Devries had an epiphany.
When hetreated patients that left feeling great but had to return two, three, even four times for the same invasive heart procedure, he knew he had to change his approach.
"I realized my cardiology training prepared me far better for bailing people out of situations than preventing them," he says. "Pills and procedures are incredibly important, but they only represent a small part of what health care should be."
Nutrition is the top risk factor for death and disability in the country, Devries says. Yet it's not emphasized in medical treatment and care. It was left out of the curriculum when he was in medical school, and it's still not taught today.
Increasingly interested in the subject, he trained in integrative medicine-a combination of alternative and natural approaches balanced with conventional-and updated his practice.
The demand for his services was so great, he had a waiting list. Wanting to do more, he founded the Gaples Institute for Integrative Cardiology. Executive director of the Deerfield-based nonprofit, Devries educates healthcare professionals and the community about the role nutrition, mind-body exercise and physical activity play in preventing disease and promoting health.

Even with genetic predisposition, lifestyle changes can usually control which genes are turned on and which genes are shut off, Devries says.
