The concept of "best practices" is now widely discussed and followed throughout the sciences and in many industries. Now, in "Best Practices for a Healthy Heart", board-certified cardiologist Dr. Sarah Samaan offers everyone seeking optimal heart health clear information and guidance on the "best practices" to follow regarding diet, exercise, drugs, alternative therapies, and more. Dr. Samaan sees roughly 300 patients each month and as a spokesperson for the American Heart Association, regularly speaks to groups about cardiac health. Her intensive work directly with patients, along with the thousands of hours she has spent researching and synthesizing the scientific literature for the very "best practices", make this a highly readable guide that will be invaluable for all patients living with heart disease. Dr. Samaan counsels readers through taking stock and charge of their numbers, diet, supplements and alternative medicine, vices including caffeine and alcohol, the importance of managing stress, and much more.
