Finally, information meets inspiration for today's busy spouse, parent, caregiver, provider...and everything else you're expected to be.

You worry about your father's bad habits. Your mother's refusal to listen to her doctor. Your spouse's cholesterol. Your children's diet. For better or worse, you're the center of your family's universe and the person trying desperately to keep them all healthy. As if you weren't busy enough!

Dr. Lori Mosca is not only one of America's top doctors; she is also a wife, a mother and a daughter. She's been where you're standing, and her message is simple: To improve your family's health, you have to start with yourself. And there are three steps to do it.

Know It. Knowledge is power. This goes beyond diet and fitness to stress management, personal fulfillment, daily attitude and spiritual practice. Happiness and health are not mutually exclusive.

Nurture It. Take care of your heart, but also your soul. Don't deprive yourself of what makes your life enjoyable. Nurture the better, healthier parts of your routine. Gradually incorporate changes that make you healthy, happy and vital.

Share It. Lead by example and your family will follow. Have healthy fun together and share not just your knowledge but your time. A healthy heart isn't another item on your "to do" list, but a new attitude that will make life easier-and give you more time and energy to share with those you love.

Dr. Lori Mosca has helped thousands take control of their lives and their health. Her proven program for family heart health is transforming the practice of medicine in hospitals and doctors' offices across the nation. Now let it transform you and your family-for life!
