Summary:
"A heart health book for women by renowned cardiologist Suzanne Steinbaum"-- Provided by publisher.
"In the tradition of Christiane Northrup, a renowned cardiologist integrates emotional and physical well-being in a revolutionary new approach to women's heart health. Heart disease is the leading cause of death among women in the United States. As a cardiologist with specializations in preventative cardiology and women's heart disease, Dr. Suzanne Steinbaum has dedicated her career to empowering women to keep their hearts, and themselves, healthy. She has observed that patients who seem to be at the peak of their lives are also often at the peak of their stress levels. Instead of enjoying better health and happiness, and reaping the rewards of career and family achievements, many of the women who come to see her suffer from chest pain, palpitations, and other alarming symptoms. Often, the cause is lifestyle-related, calling for a holistic approach that transcends medical intervention alone. The regimen Dr. Steinbaum developed has transformed thousands of lives and is now available to every woman in Dr. Suzanne Steinbaum's Heart Book. Shifting the focus from stress-inducing to heart-centered living, Dr. Steinbaum's program helps readers open their hearts and experience a deep level of self-care, putting their heart health in their hands. Covering the traditional risk factors of heart disease, including how to control weight and blood pressure, she demonstrates how emotional awareness and self-image also play key roles in heart health. The book provides clear, step-by-step "prescriptions" for integrating diet, exercise, sleep, and a healthy sex life with stress management and loving relationships. The result is an intuitive, lifelong plan that addresses the root causes of heart disease. Published during American Heart Month, Dr. Suzanne Steinbaum's Heart Book delivers a refreshing new approach to heart-centered healing"-- Provided by publisher.
