Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
CT is an accurate technique for assessing cardiac structure and function, but advances in computing power and scanning technology have resulted in increased popularity. It is useful in evaluating the myocardium, coronary arteries, pulmonary veins, thoracic aorta, pericardium, and cardiac masses; because of this and the speed at which scans can be performed, CT is even more attractive as a cost-effective and integral part of patient evaluation. This book collates all the current knowledge of cardiac CT and presents it in a clinically relevant and practical format appropriate for both cardiologists and radiologists.

Book Description
The DASH Diet (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) has been proven in several National Institutes of Health (NIH) research studies to lower blood pressure and cholesterol without medication.

Take a Load off Your Heart: 109 Things You Can Actually Do to Prevent, Halt and Reverse Heart Disease
Joseph C. Piscatella
0761126767
January 2003
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Piscatella (Fat-Proof Your Child), a motivational speaker who had coronary bypass surgery in 1977 at the age of 32, and Franklin (Making Healthy Tomorrows), director of a Cardiac Rehabilitation Laboratory, collaborated on this clearly written guide to preventing heart disease. Like other consumer health books on this subject, the authors recommend, in detail, nutritional strategies that will lower cholesterol, exercises designed to promote cardiovascular health and, of course, an absolute prohibition against smoking. However, what is different about their plan is the emphasis on reducing stress. According to the authors, recent research into cardiac health indicates that chronic stress not only has a direct negative impact on the heart by, for example, promoting arterial inflammation, but can also play an...

Book Description

Robert Kowalski's personal story is legendary. By the age of forty-one, he had suffered a heart attack and had undergone two coronary bypass surgeries.

Today Kowalski has beaten heart disease, lives an unlimited and vigorous lifestyle, and uses no prescription drugs. Now, with new information about risk factors, exercise, and supplements, The New 8-Week Cholesterol Cure is even more powerful in fighting heart disease.

It includes:

The Invision Guide to a Healthy Heart
Alexander Tsiaras

Jan 2005
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
By using cutting-edge visual technology to illustrate the harmful effects of smoking, stress, lack of exercise, a poor diet and other well-established risk factors associated with heart disease, Tsiaras, an artist and the CEO of Anatomical Travelogue, a company that produces health-related multimedia products, clearly would rather show than tell. Whether it's a dramatic image of ruptured blood vessels caused by high blood sugar or a shot of an unhealthy retina damaged by hypertension, a picture may well be worth a thousand words. These pictures are so good, however, that the text tends to be overshadowed and fall flat. While this book is stunning to look at, there is actually very little new information concerning how to achieve the subtitle's promises. Interested readers will have likely heard, if not seen, much...

Book Description
Would you like to save yourself the indignity, inconvenience and foul taste of modern diet fads? Are you sick and tired of frittering away your money on heart medications that leave you feeling more wretched than ever? Do you spend frequent, precious hours jogging or pounding away at the gym? And despite all of this effort, are you still fatter and weaker than you want to be? Then it’s time to abandon the Modern Gospel of low-fat food and long-duration exercise as a path to heart health. We need the very opposite, says Al Sears, M.D. in The Doctor’s Heart Cure. According to Dr. Sears, heart disease continues to be America’s biggest killer – and obesity has reached epidemic proportions – because of the fad for low-fat diets and despite aerobics.

The New 8-Week Cholesterol Cure : The Ultimate Program for Preventing Heart Disease
Robert E. Kowalski
0061031763
January 1, 2003
Paperback
·
 
From Library Journal
Since this book first appeared in 1987, scientists have learned much more about cholesterol and its components, associated risk factors, supplements such as B vitamins and niacin, exercise, diet, and stress reduction, and longtime medical journalist Kowalski covers the evolving scientific information in depth. However, he also espouses an initially low-carb, low-calorie diet to induce ketosis and burn fat stores. That's fine for the short term in healthy individuals. But as with any significant change in diet, this one should not be undertaken without a physician's review since it may alter blood sugar levels in diabetics (and many folks have diabetes without realizing it) or require a change in medication levels. For larger collections.Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to the...

Stop Inflammation Now! PB
Richard Fleming
1583332006

Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
The author, a nuclear cardiologist and founder of the Fleming Heart and Health Institute in Omaha, Neb., builds on his earlier work (How to Bypass Your Bypass: What Your Doctor Doesn't Tell You About Cholesterol and Your Diet) to identify in this reader-friendly guide 12 risk factors for heart disease. According to Fleming, these factors-which include high blood cholesterol level (over 150), excess weight, elevated homocysteine (resulting from eating too much animal protein) and oxidants in the blood stream-trigger an inflammatory reaction that causes heart disease and may also be responsible for diabetes, arthritis and other serious conditions. Dismissing bypass surgery and angioplasty as short-term solutions, Fleming claims that his suggested diet, combined with regular exercise such as daily walking, will...

The Dash Diet for Hypertension
Thomas Moore
0743410076
Jan 2001
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
The DASH Diet for Hypertension, recommended by the American Heart Association, has been shown in studies to lower blood pressure in two weeks without the use of drugs. The DASH (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) diet emphasizes fruits, vegetables, and low-fat dairy; includes moderate amounts of fish, poultry, and nuts; and reduces consumption of red meat and sweets. Studies from the National Institutes of Health followed 800 participants and found that the DASH diet lowered blood pressure as much as typical medication.

This is no quirky diet--it's the way the major medical groups have been advising us to eat all along, but with a specific formula that tells you how many servings to eat from each Food Pyramid food group. You also get suggestions for exercising moderately, losing weight, reducing salt, and food...

From Publishers Weekly
A lyrical writer as well as a cardiologist, the author, founder and medical director of the Scripps Center for Integrative Medicine, describes how she learned that beyond the power of our most sophisticated medical equipment is a physician's humanity—"the listening ear, the healing touch, the devices of healers throughout time." Guarneri became highly accomplished at angioplasty and stent procedures, but came to realize that those she treated could also be helped by proper nutrition and stress reduction techniques such as yoga and visualization. She became committed to practices such as those of Dean Ornish, with whom she has worked, to reverse coronary disease with diet, exercise, meditation and support groups. Guarneri studied the link between depression and heart disease, and opened her mind to the...

·
 
From Booklist
Duke University's rice diet program has been proven as a safe and fast method to reverse and prevent heart disease--the cause of 42 percent of all deaths in the U.S.--and also high blood pressure, diabetes, kidney disease, and obesity. Dietitian Rosati, the program's nutrition director, outlines this challenging three-part program: an aggressive diet (low in fat, extremely low in salt, and at least initially vegetarian), moderate exercise, and a spiritual or emotional path of one's choice (not just stress management). The latter component, according to the author, gives the dieter the needed strength to change unhealthy lifestyles and comply with this rigorous plan. Complete, detailed discussions of nutrition basics, food labeling, grains and beans, herbs as a substitute for salt, and a selection of spiritual-emotional...

Healing from the Heart
Mehmet C. Oz
0452279550
Jan 1998
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Mehmet Oz is a Renaissance man of cardiac care, combining yoga, aromatherapy, hypnosis, energy healing, music therapy, acupuncture, and visual imagery into his surgery practice at the Complementary Care Unit of New York City's Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center. He's adamant that the relationship between traditional and alternative medicine should be symbiotic, not mutually exclusive. His patients are proof of this: when treated holistically, not as just "another transplant patient" with a plaque-addled heart, they perceive less pain during surgery and recuperation, are less likely to suffer depression, and heal more quickly.

While med school at the University of Pennsylvania didn't expose Oz to the holistic healing methods he employs today, his upbringing in Turkey and exposure to cultures worldwide did leave him open...
