Dr. Alvarez introduces her innovative comprehensive guide that will help women from all walks of life understand their risk of heart disease for the first time. The common misconception is that heart disease is something that only impacts the lives of men, when in fact Coronary Artery Disease is the leading killer of both men and women. Whilst today’s research focuses almost exclusively on men, it’s a scientific fact that a woman’s heart is impacted by the fundamental biological differences between the sexes. This makes it impossible to save the lives of women using male-centric health studies and techniques alone. Many doctors are solely informed by medical studies that were dominated by patients who tended to be white middle-aged men. This means that a large number of specific complicating factors and warning signs continue to be ignored for years at a time. The work of Dr. Nitza Alvarez, one of America’s most accomplished cardiologists, has a particular focus on the health and wellbeing of female patients of all ages. Her goal is to open the eyes of women to the growing public health threat of heart disease and raise awareness that it’s not something they can simply turn a blind eye to. Her latest book is designed to promote awareness of the increased risk women face of dying from a medical condition that is very often preventable with simple changes in lifestyle and outlook. The title is inspired to emphasize the differences between the sexes, and how these impact everything from risks and symptoms to presentation and diagnosis.Get your copy today, and explore a world of preventive care that will allow you to live the happy, healthy life you and your loved ones deserve. If you make one change to the way you live this year, make it one that promotes heart health for years to come.
