What is Heart Disease -
How Does it Affect Women?

A friend of mine, in her early 40s, had been having odd shoulder pains and general achiness for several months. She had gone to doctors, had x-rays and other tests done but nothing could be found about why her shoulder hurt constantly.

Then she started having pains in her chest. This time when she went to the doctor, he immediately sent her to the emergency room because she had super high blood pressure.

They immediately did Angioplasty surgery and put a stint into one of the arteries in her heart. Her artery had been 90 % blocked.

What they didn’t tell her for another week was why they had her on blood thinners and bed rest. The reason was that while they were in there, they saw that her other artery was also 90% blocked. They couldn’t put a stint in the other one at the same time without putting her at risk during the procedure itself.

So a week later, after she had recovered from the first procedure, they told her she needed another one. After the second stint was put into the second clogged artery...
she noticed that her chronic shoulder pain had disappeared.

Her unexplained chronic shoulder pain had been a sign of heart disease but no one made the connection. None of the doctors she had been seeing even thought of heart disease as a possibility.

Her main arteries had gotten to 90% clogged before anyone thought she had a problem.

I did some research. I found information put out by the
U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office on Women’s Health.

This information said that…

Heart disease symptoms in women are very different from men. Often the symptoms in women are overlooked or misdiagnosed.

This was definitely true in my friend’s case.

After seeing what my friend went through, I wanted to share this information I found so other women could be aware of how different heart disease and heart attack symptoms are for women.

I’ve recorded an audio CD that explains what some of the risk factors are for heart disease, heart attack and Coronary Artery Disease based on the information found from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office on Women’s Health.

This audio also explains how some of these risk factors can be reduced.

If you think that a heart attack is something you don’t need to think about for another 20 or 30 years, let my friend’s story be a wake up call. She’s not even 45 yet!

Find out now how you can reduce some of your risk of heart problems. You don’t want an emergency trip to the hospital to be your wake up call on this.

Do yourself a favor, get this audio CD.
And get a copy for a friend you can’t bear to live without.
