Women And Heart Disease: New Book Empowers Women To Take Control Of Their Health
"Silence is one of the most deadly aspects of women's heart disease," says Dr. Jacqueline Eubany, board-certified cardiologist and electrophysiologist. Having devoted her life's work to saving women from this deadly disease, Dr. Eubany is an expert speaker who encourages and educates women to become proactive about their own health - so they never become a statistic of heart disease.
Her new book, Women and Heart Disease: The Real Story, is an easy-to-read, comprehensive book that does not require a medical background to understand, and it is a must-read for all women - young and old!
Heart disease remains the number one killer of women in the United States, killing more women than breast and lung cancer combined. Since the mid-80s, more women than men have died from heart disease yet more men survive a heart attack than women, and the gap between men and women's survival continues to widen.
Prevention is key, and Dr. Eubany's book is filled with great advice on everything a woman needs to know in order to avoid becoming a statistic - from lifestyle changes involving diet, exercise, alcohol and smoking, to recommendations on modern diet plans that can help lower weight and prevent hypertension, high cholesterol, diabetes and metabolic syndrome. The book also discusses aspirin therapy, hormone replacement therapy and so much more.
In her book, Dr. Eubany cites examples of actual cases from her private practice in Orange County, CA. One in particular that stands out involves Angie, a divorced mother of two school-aged children, who was feeling off-color one morning but pushed herself to get to work. She disregarded her coworker's advice to go to the doctor because, as the sole financial provider, she couldn't afford to miss time from work.
Days later Angie made it to the emergency room but sadly, because she had ignored her symptoms for so long, her heart was permanently damaged.
Jackie Eubany is an in-demand expert speaker at many heart health events around the nation, encouraging and empowering women to get informed and take control of their own health. Her presentations are articulate and informative, and her easy style engages her with any audience. Her book, Women and Heart Disease, is concise and uncomplicated, with simple diagrams and short sections on key topics that make it simple to read and easy to understand.
A board-certified cardiologist and electrophysiologist, Jackie Eubany attended the University of California Riverside for her undergraduate studies, followed by Boston University School of Medicine.
