An estimated 83 million Americans are affected by cardiovascular diseases.  Women outlive men primarily because of genetic tendencies toward earlier heart disease in men.
The symptoms of heart attack can be different in women versus men, and are often misunderstood—even by some physicians.
Ninety percent of women over the age of 50 have one or more risk factors for heart disease or stroke; however 80 percent of heart disease and stroke events may be prevented by lifestyle changes and education.
We encourage you to Know Your Numbers: blood pressure, exercise work out accomplishment, cholesterol, C Reactive Protein, Homocysteine, Insulin Resistance and Quality of Sleep.

Causes of Heart Disease

  • Genetics – The human genome maps ethnic as well as dietary weaknesses toward heart attack – get a Cardiogenomic test
  • Inadequate exercise (90% too little, 10% too much)
  • Uncontrolled high blood pressure and high blood sugar due to excess sugar, sodium and cooked vegetable fats
  • Smoking (avoid second hand smoke also)
  • Unresolved stress (spend time in nature)
  • Excessive alcohol (check liver function
  • High body fat (check your body type; ecto-, meso- or endomorph)
  • High blood levels of C-reactive protein, homocyestiene, iron, LDL particle size number, EPA/AA
  • Sleep Habits

It’s The Little Things

Heart attacks have several major warning signs and symptoms:

  • Chest pain or discomfort.

Wholesome ~ Fresh ~ Delicious A Cookbook From The Brouse House

JENNIE BROUSE has a passion for making delicious, nutritious food, and has been practicing since she was a girl. Her dear mother instilled in her the wisdom of eating for health, growing and preserving food from their large garden, and cooking from scratch. This lifestyle continued while raising their children to today. Sharing her delicious meals with friends and family has been part of her “love language”. Jennie’s husband, Richard, has counseled many patients with nutritional advice for over 43 years. She has worked beside him encouraging them in their change to a healthier lifestyle, including eating habits. This cookbook has evolved from the many requests of patients and friends who want a few guidelines for more wholesome cooking. Thus, Wholesome-Fresh-Delicious has been created with recipes that have been favorites in the Brouse house. It is the authors’ hope that many will be inspired to seek out more wholesome food sources, embrace seasonal eating of fresh produce, and love cooking from scratch; all of which will encourage great health! https://www.brousehousecookbook.com/
