Good morning Diana,
This past Friday was ‘wear red day’ to highlight awareness of the impact heart
disease has on women. It occurred to me that it’s fair and fine to wear red for just
one day, but that it takes an ongoing dialogue to really heighten our awareness as
women. Why? Because typically we tend to place ourselves last on our list of
priorities. Also we tend to walk around thinking this could not happen to us. It
happens to other people.
This article highlights some important facts everyone needs to know about heart
disease. So even if you happen to be a male subscriber reading this newsletter this
morning, I know that just by virtue of your existence you have to have at least one
female in your life-your mother, perhaps a wife, significant other, co-worker. I’m
requesting that we all take a few moments to arm ourselves with some new
knowledge, because perhaps sometime in the future you will be able to save a
woman’s life who just wants to brush aside those symptoms that she has been having.
As always I would love to read your comments and feedback.
Have a great day!!
February is heart disease awareness month for women. As a physician with over 20
years of experience, it is my passion to help women learn all that they can to
enhance their health and wellbeing.And yet I find that even today that a lot of women do not know the facts when it comes to heart disease.Case in point, there used to be a time when it was thought that women under the
age of 50 could not suffer a heart attack. So you can imagine what happened if you
were a woman and you went to see your doctor with a complaint of chest pain. Your
doctor would usually reassure you that it was not your heart and perhaps you had
indigestion or were under a lot of stress and prescribe something for that.The truth is that there are still some doctors out there that treat their female patients
that way.And so, it is extremely important if you are a woman that you arm yourself with
the facts.I have highlighted some important facts in today’s video:Here are some other facts that you need to be aware of-
