Heart disease is the #1 cause of death in America. It affects 81 million Americans and is the culprit in one of every two deaths in the United States.

In Beat the Heart Attack Gene, world-renowned cardiovascular specialists Bradley Bale, MD and Amy Doneen, ARNP, present a new model for understanding and preventing heart disease. They explain the three different genetic types of cholesterol profiles and tailor treatments for each type, using their cutting-edge Bale/Doneen Method, a simple, comprehensive prevention plan that detects cardiovascular disease (CVD) at early stages. Beat the Heart Attack Gene includes easy quizzes and self-tests that show how to determine cholesterol genotype as well as advice for how to apply that knowledge through nutritional and lifestyle changes. For heart attack and stroke survivors, the Bale/Doneen Method also helps prevent recurrences by identifying and treating what's triggering the patient's disease--a crucial step that many cardiologists neglect.

With their proven method utilized by healthcare professionals worldwide, Bale and Doneen empower readers by alerting them to potential health threats, and then offer personalized, evidence-based strategies so they can live healthy, active lives without fear of heart attack or stroke. Specifically, Beat the Heart Attack Gene addresses:

Cardiovascular Health: Living Your Best with a Healthy Heart
Cardiovascular Health
Living Your Best with a Healthy Heart
1st Edition    Paperback      ISBN: 1459738934
A complete guide to the treatment and prevention of cardiovascular disease.

Being diagnosed with a cardiovascular disease seems unlikely to many, yet cardiovascular diseases are actually the leading cause of mortality worldwide. The good news is that by modifying our lifestyle habits, it's possible to increase both our number of healthy years and our lifespan. While modern medicine has an impressive arsenal of drugs, imaging techniques, and intervention procedures and can usually save patients in the acute phase of a heart attack, heart specialists recommend that we adopt a proactive attitude with respect to disease prevention.

In a simple, easy-to-read style, Dr. Martin Juneau examines specific case studies from his own extensive clinical practice to explain new issues in heart health. From the incredible importance of exercise and diet to the unsuspected role of stress and air pollution, Cardiovascular Health explains how the heart functions, describes coronary bypasses and other rescue procedures, explores promising new research, and teaches you about the risks and preventative steps you can take to maintain a happy, healthy heart.
Caring for the Heart: Mayo Clinic and the Rise of Specialization
Caring for the Heart
Mayo Clinic and the Rise of Specialization
1st Edition    Hardcover      ISBN: 019998235x

This groundbreaking book weaves together three important themes. It describes major developments in the diagnosis and treatment of heart disease in the twentieth century, explains how the Mayo Clinic evolved from a family practice in Minnesota into one of the world's leading medical centers, and reveals how the invention of new technologies and procedures promoted specialization among physicians and surgeons.

Caring for the Heart is written for general readers as well as health care professionals, historians, and policy analysts. Unlike traditional institutional or disease-focused histories, this book places individuals and events in national and international contexts that emphasize the interplay of medical, scientific, technological, social, political, and economic forces that have resulted in contemporary heart care. Patient stories and media perspectives are included throughout to help general readers understand the medical and technological developments that are described.

The book is a synthetic study, but it is written so that readers may pick and choose the chapters of most interest to them. Another feature of the book is that readers may follow the stories without looking at the notes. Those who are interested in delving deeper into the main topics will find a wealth of carefully chosen references that offer greater detail and additional perspectives. The descriptions and interpretations that fill the book benefit from the fact that the author has been a practicing cardiologist and medical historian for almost four decades.
This is mainly a twentieth-century story, but it begins earlier--before there were physicians who were identified as cardiologists and at a time when medical specialization was just emerging in America. The final chapter, which addresses present-day concerns about health care costs, counterbalances earlier ones that might be read as celebrations of new technologies.
