And while facts and statistics provide unquestionable proof that we collectively continue to lose ground in the battle against heart disease, we blatantly refuse to admit the reality of the situation. Baby Boomers are among the worst of the bunch in terms of facing this reality. It's time to face the facts, and proactively battle this illness!
I have developed a newsletter that provides heart patients with a positive and proactive approach to the battle against heart illness. It is free, published quarterly (perhaps more often is there is sufficient interest), and addresses both challenges and opportunities facing heart patients. My personal battle with the illness has spanned 39 years, and includes both my parents, and myself. I am still here, still battling, and I want to see others do the same.
The newsletter is an easy read. It is a four page document, and highlights issues that deal with Lifestyle Impacts, Emotional Stress, Peer Support, and Health & Nutrition. It is available by clicking to : Heart Newsletter Fall 2006 .
Future blogs will deal with these topics in more detail!
