Can Stress Affect Your Heart?

Thinking about heart disease can be enough to make our palms sweat and minds race. It is, after all, the number one cause of death in the United States.

But did you know that stress can increase your risk of heart disease?

What We Know About Stress

The exact correlation between stress and our hearts isn’t entirely clear, but countless studies show that the two are related. The Women’s Health Study sampling revealed that women with highly stressful jobs were as much as 40% more likely to develop heart disease than women who faced fewer professional demands.

Another found that heart attacks were more common among adults who had experienced stressful events, including divorce, job loss, retirement, or injury in the past year.

All of this points to the importance of stress management in preventing and managing heart disease. Whether you’re one of the millions of Americans who already have heart disease or are considered at risk, keeping stress in check is essential to reducing your chances of a heart attack or stroke.

Stress, a Word With Many Faces

Acute stress is tied to specific events, from running late to public speaking. Occasional acute stress can be a good thing, motivating you to work harder and face fears.

Chronic stress is the kind of ongoing strain that wears people down. Money woes, unhealthy marriages, demanding jobs, and toxic relationships are some common causes.

One of the trickiest things about pinpointing stress is there’s no single, defining characteristic or cause.

The work deadline that keeps you awake at night might not bother your coworker. You might sweat, shake, or turn to cigarettes under pressure, whereas someone else feeling just as anxious appears cool as a cucumber.

Whether a person shows stress or not, though, one thing is exact: Situations that register as stressful affect your hormones as well as your cardiovascular, respiratory, and nervous system. Your heart beats faster, you’re more likely to sweat, and “fight or flight” impulses set in as your body, thinking it’s under attack, prepares to engage danger or escape.

The Connection to Heart Health

Stress often causes people to overeat, drink alcohol, lose sleep, exercise less, or smoke - all proven threats to cardiovascular wellbeing. This is why some researchers consider stress an indirect cause of heart disease.

Some people believe that heightened activity in the amygdala, a part of the brain that releases white blood cells during stress, is directly responsible when these cells build up on the walls of arteries, causing a blockage.

Others think that the link between stress and heart disease results from prolonged exposure to elevated stress hormones like cortisol.

Post-Diagnosis Management

Whatever the exact correlation, one thing is crystal clear: sound, stress-free mind can help you prevent heart hurdles at any stage – including situations where you may have already been diagnosed. In fact, a recent study found that cardiac rehabilitation patients who received stress management training were 50% less likely to suffer another heart attack or stroke.

Why You Should Invest in Life Imaging

Life Imaging is on a mission to provide education and affordable early detection of the two deadliest diseases known to humankind; heart disease and cancer. Early detection allows us to get to the problem early and saves lives!

After our founder experienced the loss of life first hand, we set out to take preventative action and reduce preventable deaths in the United States through early detection, which allows us to tackle the problems related to heart disease and cancer before life-threatening symptoms occur.

Our FDA-approved EBTC scanners can easily detect many of these diseases before a patient shows any symptoms, sometimes decades ahead, using only 10% of a standard CT scanner’s radiation.

Full body scans can cost thousands of dollars through insurance, but our packages are just a few hundred dollars a scan, making our body scans incredibly affordable. Plus, our scanning protocols are straightforward, don’t require any contrast or dyes, and only take a mere five-ten minutes of your time. 

Our goal is to have Life Imaging around the world so anyone can have access to affordable preventative care, and by doing that, we can save lives every day.

But that begs the question, how do we take Life Imaging globally?

The answer? Simple. Invest in Life Imaging

And if you’re not already convinced to join our mission, here’s why we believe we’re your next best investment that will make a real impact for the people who need it the most. 

Our Flagship Location is Tapping Into South Florida’s Market

Our South Florida flagship clinic is getting close to opening, and we’re excited that we’re tapping into the eighth largest market in the US.

South Florida has over 7 million people!

More importantly, South Florida is full of baby boomers who have retired well into South Florida, also known as the “Gold Coast.” The area is well known as one of the United States’ most prominent retirement destinations—- our ideal demographic.

We anticipate servicing all of South Florida from the North of Miami to West Palm Beach, which means we will directly serve those who need our services the most while supporting our business growth and bottom line. In addition, with our proprietary unique marketing approach, we will create a massive buzz regarding the early detection of heart disease and cancer.

From this location, we plan on expanding by using our flagship facility to train more employees from other cities around the US and the world.

We’re Adapting an Existing Technology For Preventative Medicine

Millions of people walk around every day with heart disease and cancer that are asymptomatic. They’re walking timebombs without even knowing it. Even worse, many people don’t realize that with our technology there is an extremely accurate, painless, and non-intrusive way to prevent these deadly diseases.

Life Imaging is taking state of the art CT technology and applying it proactive towards preventative screening for early signs of heart disease and cancer. By adapting and optimizing an existing technology, we’re able to save on costs, while also being able to provide services that are FDA approved and recognized by our consumers. 

Our Key Differentiators Set Us Apart From the Competition

At Life Imaging, we live by the philosophy, “Affordability, without sacrificing quality”

Our core values stem from this ethos, which we believe make the consumer choose Life Imaging over our competitors:

  • Quality: Our Life Imaging facilities use licensed radiologists rather than doctors, which allows us to maintain the highest quality experience at a lower cost to the patients.
  • Affordability: With bundled payments, the cost per scan is 70% cheaper than traditional scans. Not only this, reactive treatment is shown to cost more to the consumer than preventative medicine.
  • Ease of use: With scans that take only five minutes, and detailed reports with 98% accuracy provided the same day. Convenience is one of our core values. 

Since Our Soft Opening, We’ve Done Over a Half a Million Dollars in Revenue With a Marketing Strategy to Support More Growth

While that is remarkable in itself, what's even more exciting for us is that we have developed a unique direct marketing model that will help us grow.

We plan to achieve fast results by blanketing the market by:

  • Implementing TV, Radio, and Social media advertising
  • Offering free complimentary Heart Scans to potential patients valued at 499.00 dollars.
  • Expanding our proprietary Preferred Care program that involves individual scans and bundling for annual heart and cancer screening over three, five, and seven years.
  • Promoting our concept and educating the public to understand that we now choose when it comes to heart disease and cancer!

Our marketing efforts have proven fruitful thus far, and continued investment will allow us to scale marketing efforts, drive more traffic, conversions, and save more lives.

What is Life Imaging? Everything you Need to Know

October 6, 2020

With the loss of both of his parents to cancer at a young age, our CEO and founder, Tom Graham, was afraid that he would be cancer’s next victim. Taking control of his life, Tom decided to have a full-body scan done, and thankfully the results were unremarkable, meaning no early signs of Heart disease or cancer in his body or major organs.

But what if it was too late?

What if Tom took the full-body scan and the results were not unremarkable?

What if the results came back positive for cancer or heart disease?

We are completely unaware of what goes on in our bodies until it’s often too late mainly due to:

  • A lack of education or awareness that something is lurking in our bodies
  • An expensive healthcare system that prevents us from taking screenings often

Tom realized that there needed to be a way to detect the two deadly diseases as early as possible to help disrupt this deadly system.

It was time for a change.

Tom founded Life Imaging, and today we’re on a mission to educate and provide an affordable early detection system for the two deadliest diseases known to humanity— heart disease and cancer. 

Preventative Care in The United States is Subpar

There is nothing we fear more in life than death.

Whether from old age or a freak accident, a long battle with a disease, or even suicide. Death is an event that has a significant impact on families, communities, and even nations. One thing holds in every scenario--death is always a challenging experience.

Two of the largest causes of death are:

Heart Disease

  • 1,600,000 people suffer a heart attack every year
  • 50% of the men and 64% of the women who die suddenly of coronary artery disease had no prior symptoms!
  • In 2012, $411 Billion was spent on coronary heart disease, a large portion paid by consumers.
  • Approximately 48% of all Americans will suffer some degree of coronary artery disease.
  • For 150,000 people, the first sign of heart disease will be their fatal heart attack.


  • In 2018, an estimated 1,735,350 new cancer cases will be diagnosed in the United States, and 609,640 people will die from the disease.
  • In 2016, there were an estimated 15.5 million cancer survivors in the United States. The number of cancer survivors is expected to increase to 20.3 million by 2026
  • Approximately 38.4% of men and women will be diagnosed with cancer at some point during their lifetimes.
  • In 2017, an estimated 15,270 children and adolescents ages 0 to 19 were diagnosed with cancer, and 1,790 died of the disease.
  • Estimated national expenditures for cancer care in the United States in 2017 were $147.3 billion.

But what if we told you some of these deaths are preventable, and that prevention is also affordable for everyone.

Would you believe us?

Probably not and for good reason.

The US is embroiled in a complicated and expensive health care system that more often than not serves the business needs more than the patients. Any research or testing of medicine is heavily inflated, which leaves millions of people in the dark about the underlying health issues they may be having simply due to cost.

This results in too many people dying from heart disease, cancer, and other fatal diseases that can often be detected early by using groundbreaking and straightforward CT technologies.

Modern Methods to Save Lives, Affordably

Just like the rest of the world, Life Imaging has seen the loss of life first hand. Ultimately it’s inspired us to reduce preventable deaths in the US by developing an affordable solution that will help solve our national heart disease and cancer crisis.

Our FDA-approved EBTC scanners can easily detect many deadly diseases before a patient shows any symptoms and even sometimes decades ahead, using only 10% of a standard CT scanner’s radiation.

Full body scans can cost thousands of dollars through insurance and other medical providers, and it’s unlikely your doctor would even give you a script for a full-body scan, to begin with.

Our packages are just a few hundred dollars a scan, making our body scans incredibly affordable and accessible for many people!

Our Core Values Drive Everything We do at Life Imaging

We live and breathe by our values in a way that allows us to focus on impacting your life by providing excellent service and the tools to take control of cancer and heart disease before it takes control of you.

In our CEO’s words, “We need to get ahead of heart disease and cancer. If we could’ve used this technology in this way when it was invented over 20 years ago, millions would’ve been saved.”

We take the guesswork out of preventative care.

Patients come in to learn about our process and get scanned, and we provide them with an easy-to-read detailed report. Depending on the report, we will transfer the information to their doctor to help them set up the next steps if needed.

For example, if a patient shows a high calcium score of the heart, we will forward that information to their doctor. The doctor will then tell them they need to do x, y, and z, and we can set a plan for doing annual screenings to see any improvements in our annual preferred care program.

Heart disease is reversible in most cases. We make the process as smooth and affordable as possible.

We’re on a Mission to Bring Life Imaging to a Neighborhood Near You!

As mentioned, we believe that we are the solution to early prevention. At Life Imaging, we are working diligently to make this a reality, and the only way possible is to have multiple locations.

We won’t stop until individuals have complete access to affordable, preventive care.

We’ve made significant strides so far, but we need YOUR help.
