Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States for both men and women, and can express itself in many forms: high blood pressure, lipid imbalances, insulin abnormalities and diabetes, atherosclerosis, stroke, and a number of others. A good deal of heart disease is related to lifestyle and daily habits of living. While conventional medicine has developed a wide array of methods to address the many ways heart disease affects our health, these treatments often have unwanted risks and side effects, are costly, and may not perform as advertised. Alternative medicine in many cases offers approaches to heart disease that are safer and equally effective. Blueprints for a Healthy Heart offers a great deal of information about natural and alternative medical approaches that can help those afflicted with heart disease cope with their illnesses while avoiding many of the complications conventional approaches often trigger.
