A revolutionary, personalized guide to preventing heart disease based on genetic factors

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. Most people think that they are not at risk of a heart attack if they control their cholesterol and blood pressure, but they aren't aware of other major risk factors. The good news is that with the right information and strategies, heart attacks are preventable--even if heart disease runs in the family.

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:

*The hidden cause of most heart attacks
*Early prevention methods

Beat Your A-Fib: The Essential Guide to Finding Your Cure

Atrial Fibrillation (A-Fib) is the most common cardiac arrhythmia (abnormal heart rhythm) seen by physicians. Many patients suffering from Atrial Fibrillation have three strikes against them:
1. Their "quality of life" has deteriorated; they are scared or frightened.
2. Many experience side effects from the common drug therapies or simply do not want to live on medication; a cure for their A-Fib hasn't been discussed.
3. Patient information is often out-of-date, incomplete or biased toward a specific pharmaceutical or treatment; much information about new treatment options is written in the language of scientists and doctors.

The author, Dr. Steve Ryan, PhD, a former A-Fib patient, addresses all these issues. His book is written for the newly diagnosed patient and any A-Fib patient who doesn't want to wade through medical texts and research journals to understand their disease. Beat Your A-Fib helps patients and their families look beyond the commonly prescribed drug therapies that only manage the disease, but do not cure it.

Beat Your A-Fib: The Essential Guide to Finding Your Cure offers:
- Unbiased, up-to-date information and best practices
- Medical terms and concepts translated into everyday language
- Non-drug treatment options including Cardioversion, RF catheter ablation, Pulmonary Vein Isolation, CryoBalloon, Cox-Maze and Mini-Maze surgeries, and AV Node Ablation with Pacemaker
- Research-based content with a bibliography of over 150 medical references
- 'Lessons learned' from A-Fib patients now enjoying lives free of the burden of A-Fib
- Recommended Resources and Website Links
- Patient tools to become their own best healthcare advocate

This unique book helps patients research their best treatment options, steps through how to find the right doctor for their type of A-Fib and treatment goals, gives patients hope and empowers them to develop a plan for finding their A-Fib cure or best outcome.

Dr. Walter Kerwin, MD, of Cedars-Sinai Medical Center Los Angeles, California, wrote the Foreword for the book. Dr. Steven C. Hao, MD, of California Pacific Medical Center, San Francisco, California, penned the Introduction.

Dr. Steve Ryan, PhD, is a noted healthcare educator and advocate for patients with Atrial Fibrillation, and former A-Fib patient. He earned his Ph.D. in Educational Communications from the Ohio State University.
