Cardiovascular disease is Canada's #1 killer, and although Canadians are becoming more aware of its symptoms and the preventative measures available, there are few authoritative and comprehensive texts for the average patient. In a unique and important partnership, Dr. Brian Baker, a psychiatrist who specializes in treating patients with heart disease, and Dr. Paul Dorian, one of Canada's leading cardiologists, have written a groundbreaking book based on their extensive clinical experience and research into heart disease. What they have found is that there are undeniable links between one's state of mind and the ability to recover from heart attacks and other coronary heart events. The two doctors examine both the psychological and the medical experience of coronary artery disease, providing insight and specific strategies at every stage -- plans that are useful, straightforward, and successful.
This unique approach to heart health, with its balanced focus on body and mind, is an indispensable guide to recovery for those suffering from heart disease at any stage, and for those closest to them.
