This Book Could Save Your Life!


Heart disease is the NUMBER-ONE killer of women, and women of all ages are at risk. If you are a woman in your twenties, thirties or forties, you could be subject to a heart attack, a stroke or congestive heart failure if you smoke, don't exercise, are under stress, are overweight, eat fatty meals, or your family has a history of heart dis­ease. And, if you are one of the 50 million women currently age fifty or over, you are more vulnerable to heart disease because of your loss of estrogen. In fact, more women than men die of heart disease after age fifty!

The Heart of a Woman is one woman's personal story of her physical and psy­chological odyssey through surviving heart disease and reversing its effects.This per­sonal story will touch the heart of every woman who might be vulnerable to heart disease or who actually has experienced the disease and is now trying to reverse it. It is a page-turning personal story coming from Pat Krantzler, a renowned psycholo­gist who provides insights into the emotional consequences of heart disease, as well as a presentation of the most authoritative, up-to-date scientific advice on heart problems from the famous Cardiology Associates of Marin and San Francisco. It offers a specific practical program for reversing heart disease that is internationally regarded as outstanding. This book is also for you if you are a family member of a woman with heart disease and want to support your loved one throughout the re­habilitation process in the most skillful way possible.

Beginning with the author's enduring a life-threatening heart attack (with no prior knowledge that she was even at risk for heart disease), the narrative traces her physical and emotional roller-coaster ride directly following the attack: her rehabili­tation, her ongoing efforts to reverse heart disease, and her commitment to reclaim­ing her life and re-creating her self-image. It is a candid and intimate portrait, and a testament to the courage and faith necessary to successfully undertake a journey of spiritual healing and self-renewal. This is also the first book to identify and describe the mourning process, which can enable you to achieve a new, positive sense of self after surviving a heart attack. Recognizing the stages of the mourning process and moving through them could save your life as you recover from heart disease.
