If you are one of the millions of women who has been diagnosed with
heart disease or are at risk for developing it, you might be surprised
to learn that simple life changes will profoundly affect your health.
According to a revolutionary study by Harvard-trained cardiologist
Malissa Wood, true cardiovascular health must address the whole
heart--its physical, emotional, and spiritual aspects.

Dr. Wood’s findings form the basis of Smart at Heart,
a breakthrough mind-body approach to preventing and healing heart
disease by strengthening the ten “bridges” that create total heart
health. By exploring these ten key areas of your life, you can fight
heart disease. For example, while exercise and nutrition are known to
improve cardiac health (and make up two of the bridges), Dr. Wood’s
study also shows how small changes to your environment, the way you
communicate, or how you handle stress has a big effect on your heart. So
something as commonplace as clearing out the clutter from your home can
positively change not only your emotions, but also your physical

Heart disease is a serious diagnosis and if you are at risk, there’s a lot you can do to improve your own health. Smart at Heart empowers you with the solutions you need--backed up by science--to create a healthy, whole heart.
