A breakthrough mind-body program to build a strong, healthy, and happy heart, for women at risk for or diagnosed with heart disease, from the Harvard-trained cardiologist behind the Women’s Heart Health Program at Massachusetts General Hospital.
Heart disease is the number-one killer of American women, and prevention and healing require integrative approaches to address the whole heart—physical, emotional, and spiritual. Smart at Heart’s holistic program includes strategies to improve heart health by addressing ten bridges that link the physical and emotional hearts, including the mental health, relationship, and communication bridges. This book guides readers through evaluating their current state of physical and emotional health and then empowers them with solutions to strengthen each bridge to create a healthy, whole heart.
