Taking Care of Your Vascular System This Holiday Season

Happy Holidays New York Ny

Your vascular system is the most central part of your living body. Vascular disease is classified as any condition or illness that affects the network of your blood vessels. The vascular system, also known as the circulatory system, moves blood with oxygen and nutrients to feed your tissues and carry off waste. It is vital to your well-being.

It is very easy to allow the holiday season to overwhelm us in many different areas of life. The stress can get to many of us with all of the things to do, all of the gifts to purchase, and all of the unhealthy options available to us. Understanding that certain factors can increase your risk of vascular disease can help you make better choices. These are risk factors to keep in mind:

  • Diabetes
  • Family history of vascular disease, heart attack, or stroke
  • High blood pressure
  • High level of fats, cholesterol, and triglycerides
  • Being overweight or obese
  • Lack of physical activity
  • Gender (men are at higher risk than women)
  • Smoking
  • Stress

During the holiday season and throughout the year, it is crucial that you make good choices that will help to take care of your vascular system. A healthy diet full of natural foods (limiting or reducing all processed foods) can help lower your blood sugar and cholesterol. Regular exercise pumps blood through your veins and into your heart to keep your heart working strong. Stress management will help to lower your blood pressure and take that pressure off your heart so that it can function properly. Quitting all tobacco use is also vital for your vascular health, so now is the time to do it. By making simple lifestyle changes, you can increase your quality of life, and there is no better time than now. What better gift to give yourself and your loved ones than a healthy version of yourself!

Dr. Benvenisty was excellent and helped us with my husband's extensive leg swelling related to diabetes. We had another specialist who didn't help us last year. We're planning to stay with Dr. Benvenisty now! He's detailed oriented, matter-of-fact and friendly. An excellent doctor I would strongly recommend.


Dr. Benvenisty treated my mother in the ER during this time of the covid outbreak. He was a part of a fantastic team of doctors that were brought in to find out what was ailing my mother. He is first and for most experienced in many areas as my mother was diagnosed with pancreatitis. Although he transferred the surgery to another member of his team, he gave me his mobile and kept me informed of her condition/diagnosis at a time where I was unable to be with her myself because of this pandemic. His heart, compassion, understanding and bedside manner are things that I will not ever forget. He is an excellent doctor and truly a great human being.

Howard L.

Dr. Benvenisty is the most caring physician that I know. He is brilliant, highly ethical and trustworthy. His knowledge extends well beyond his specialty. He makes referrals to the best possible physicians. I know Dr. Benvenisty for 25 years and have complete confidence in him.
