Item description for Healing the Female Heart: A Holistic Approach to Prevention and Recovery from Heart Disease by Elizabeth Ross...
Overview Citing the unexpected high risk of coronary heart disease faced by American women, a guide to coronary health explains the range of treatments and provides holistic guidance on how to nourish the inner self. Original.
Publishers Description Coronary heart disease is the number one killer of American women. Every year in this country, six times as many women die from heart attacks as from breast cancer. Yet the symptoms of women's heart disease are often misunderstood and misdiagnosed by doctors, and women themselves may grossly underestimate their own risk for heart problems. When they do receive treatment, women are frequently older and sicker than their male counterparts, and as a result, much less likely to recover fully. Healing the Female Heart, women's cardiologist Elizabeth Ross equips you not only with the medical knowledge you need - of risk factors, the tests used to diagnose heart disease, and the treatments used to manage it - but with holistic guidance that will help you give your heart the best possible attention. You'll learn how to get astute medical care as well as how to nourish your inner self, so that the mind-body connection works for your heart's health, not against it. With this holistic approach, you can keep your heart beating strong - for a happier, fuller, longer life.
