DIVTake charge of your heart health today. The New Heart Disease Handbook provides you with all the information you need to safeguard your heart. And even after a heart disease has been diagnosed, this practical reference book can be used to take positive action—to control the illness, minimize its effects, and have a say in the selection of the best possible treatment.
/divWritten by Dr. Christopher Cannon, a leading cardiologist working at the forefront of heart research, it covers every aspect of heart health, care, and treatment. Clearly and simply, Dr. Cannon describes the most common heart diseases and exactly what steps you need to take to prevent or treat them. Drawing on the latest clinical studies, he sets out the risk factors, while suggesting easy ways to reduce those risks, from choosing heart-friendly foods and adopting relaxation techniques to lowering cholesterol and blood pressure. He explains the uses and potential side effects of standard and new medications, and talks you through the most widely used tests, treatments, and surgical procedures so that you know exactly what to expect and how to prepare. The accompanying illustrations, quick-reference tables, and handy checklists of questions will further assist you to assess your own health, and make the most of your consultations with your doctor and specialists.

Empowering and inspiring, positive yet practical, The New Heart Disease Handbook will help you not just maintain good heart health, but improve the quality of the rest of your life.
In the last decade, the rules for "outliving" heart disease—living well with your heart until you die of some other cause—have changed dramatically.

Dr. Richard Stein, the director of Preventive Cardiology at Beth Israel Hospital in New York City, cuts through the constant stream of new reports and often-contradictory information about preventing and treating heart disease with his 10 new rules:

Rule No. 1: Be Alert to Symptoms that Signal Imminent Heart Attack
Rule No. 2: Know Your Risk for Having a Heart Attack in the Next 10 Years
Rule No. 3: Take a Statin
Rule No. 4: Exercise! It's a Proactive Way to Reduce Heart Disease and Heart Attack Risk
Rule No. 5: Eat Well: Diet Guidelines for Heart Health
Rule No. 6: Understand the Mind-Body Connection
Rule No. 7: Explore Alternative Treatments
Rule No. 8: Keep Up with the Latest Tests and Treatments
Rule No. 9: Understand the Connections to Your Gender and Your Heritage
Rule No. 10: Partner with Your Doctor to Reach Your Heart-Health Goals

In plain English, Outliving Heart Disease explains: Vascular changes that take place as you age—and how they affect your heart • The specific risk factors affecting women, African-Americans, and other groups • The latest research on statins—those miracle drugs that have revolutionized the prevention and treatment of heart disease • How to create a heart-healthy diet and cardiovascular exercise program • How depression, anxiety, and stress impact the heart, and what you can do about it.

Updated with the most current therapies and diagnostic techniques, this is the guide for every man and woman to prevent and treat heart disease.

Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease challenges conventional cardiology by posing a compelling, revolutionary idea-that we can, in fact, abolish the heart disease epidemic in this country by changing our diets. Drawing on the groundbreaking results of his twenty-year nutritional study, Dr. Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr., a former surgeon, researcher, and clinician at the Cleveland Clinic, convincingly argues that a plant-based, oil-free diet can not only prevent and stop the progression of heart disease, but also reverse its effects.

Furthermore, it can eliminate the need for expensive and invasive surgical interventions, such as bypass and stents, no matter how far the disease has progressed. Dr. Esselstyn began his research with a group of patients who joined his study after traditional medical procedures to treat their advanced heart disease had failed. Within months of following a plant-based, oil-free diet, their angina symptoms eased, their cholesterol levels dropped significantly, and they experienced a marked improvement in blood flow to the heart. Twenty years later, the majority of Dr. Esselstyn's patients continue to follow his program and remain heart-attack proof.

Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease explains the science behind these dramatic results, and offers readers the same simple, nutrition-based plan that has changed the lives of his patients forever. In addition, Dr. Esselstyn provides more than 150 delicious recipes that he and his wife, Ann Crile Esselstyn, have enjoyed for years and used with their patients. Clearly written and backed by irrefutable scientific evidence, startling photos of angiograms, and inspiring personal stories, Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease will empower readers to take charge of their heart health. It is a powerful call for a paradigm shift in heart-disease therapy.
How would you like to look and feel ten years younger in just ten weeks time?

Studies show that Americans on the whole are aging faster than ever with conditions like diabetes, cancer, and heart disease occurring increasingly earlier on in life—along with everyday age indicators like wrinkles and love handles. Now, Dr. Steven Masley, former medical director of the prestigious Pritikin Longevity Center® and a pioneer in anti-aging medicine, delivers a breakthrough plan to turn back the clock, inside and out—no matter what your age!

Originally featured on the Discovery Channel, the Ten Years Younger Program is designed to combat the roots of accelerated aging. Poor nutrition, toxins in the environment, stress, and exposure to free radicals all make us old before our time, along with a little-known aging culprit: low- and no-carb diets. As Dr. Masley shows, low-carb diets deprive the body of anti-aging phytonutrients and fiber, accelerate osteoporosis, and damage brain cells. So the first secret of turning back time is: Eat your carbs!

Each week, Ten Years Younger guides you through an age-busting combination of cutting-edge nutritional choices, relaxation techniques to reduce the aging effects of stress, and simple workouts designed to build lean muscle and trim and tone your body from head to toe. By following the plan for just ten weeks, you will:
Achieve significant weight loss—up to twenty-five pounds
Boost your energy levels
Rejuvenate your skin
Enhance brain function
Prevent and reverse the onset of diabetes and heart disease
Lower your cholesterol and blood pressure
Improve sexual vitality

With tools to help you assess how your body is really aging, weekly shopping lists and meal plans, and over 100 delicious recipes packed with antioxidants and anti-aging nutrients, Ten Years Younger is the healthiest, safest, and fastest way to take off the years—no surgery required!
Heart disease kills more people than any other medical condition. And no one is more aware of this than top cardiologist Dr. Chauncey Crandall, who has performed over 40,000 heart procedures during his career.

In his new book, The Simple Heart Cure, you’ll find this top doc’s groundbreaking approach to preventing and reversing heart disease — an approach honed by his study of foreign cultures free of heart disease and decades of experience helping patients achieve a healthier heart at any age.

Dr. Crandall is living proof of his program’s success. At the age of 48, and with no major risk factors, he found himself in the ER with a “widow-maker” blockage of his main coronary artery. After emergency heart surgery, he recovered from heart disease using the same course of treatment he recommends to his thousands of patients — and details for your benefit — in The Simple Heart Cure.

His unique perspective as both doctor and patient helps him empathize with the difficulties in making a transition from years of bad habits to a heart-healthy way of life. Plus, Dr. Crandall believes in using every weapon in his medical arsenal — conventional medicine, emerging treatments, lifestyle changes, even alternative therapies — to help his patients recover.

Here are just a few of the potentially life-saving gems you’ll discover:

• Proven ways to banish bad cholesterol
• How to slash your risk of a deadly heart attack by 61%
• 8 easy steps to head off that high blood pressure
• How you can safeguard against stroke
• Simple strategies to unclog your arteries without surgery
• What your belly says about your heart health
• Must-have heart tests for everyone over 50
• Easy solutions to steer clear of statin drugs, and much more...

So whether you just want to prevent heart problems, or you’ve already had a heart attack, you’ll find the help you need in The Simple Heart Cure, along with tasty, heart-healthy menus and a 90-day week-by-week plan to help you start taking action immediately.
