9780071390262: The Heart Mind Connection

This landmark study that explains the connection between heart disease and depression

The Heart Mind Connection presents compelling evidence on how emotions can actually cause cardiac trouble. Cardiologist Windsor Ting and psychiatrist Greg Fricchione examine the mind/body connection to show how eight Heart/Mind Conspirators (depression, anxiety, anger, social isolation, stress, panic disorder, and daily and seasonal rhythms) can physically undermine your health.

Included is advice on using anti-depressants, ensuring a healthy heart and mind, and survival strategies for dealing with the side effects of surgery and heart recovery. In addition, there's additional advice for women to help them find important information on their risk for heart disease and using hormone replacement therapy.

From the Back Cover:

A leading heart specialist and a top psychiatrist offer you their Rx for a healthy mind and a healthy heart

It's not so surprising that heart disease can cause depression. But did you know that research shows that negative emotions can actually cause or worsen heart disease? If you have cardiovascular disease, experienced a heart attack, had bypass surgery, or suffer from an anxiety or mood disorder, you owe it to yourself to read this book--the information it contains could save your life.

In The Heart-Mind Connection Dr. Windsor Ting and Dr. Gregory Fricchione team up to examine the mind-body connection. They explain the biology of emotions and identify the eight "Heart-Mind Conspirators" that can physically undermine your health: depression, anxiety, anger, social isolation, chronic and subacute stress, panic disorder, and daily and seasonal rhythms. In addition, you'll discover:

  • How to evaluate common antidepressants and their merits for heart patients
  • Alternative approaches to treating anxiety and depression
  • Tips on managing stress and anger
  • Advice on how to work with your doctor to develop a plan of action
  • Strategies for dealing with the side-effects of surgery and cardiac rehabilitation
  • Important information on a woman's risk for heart disease and using hormone replacement therapy
