Your Cholesterol Matters: A Book Review

About The Book:

Two-thirds of the time, the initial symptom is a full-blown heart attack.
Doctors routinely tell patients to watch their diet, get regular exercise, and lose weight. They also increasingly prescribe "cholesterol lowering" drugs that patients will take every day for the rest of their lives. The pill makes us feel like we're doing something, so we slack off in our goals for a healthier lifestyle. To make matters worse, the pill solves only a portion of the problem, giving us a false sense of security.

Dr. Richard Furman wants you to know that you don't have to pin your health hopes on expensive medications that only address a small part of the cholesterol puzzle (and often have negative health-impacting side effects). In this practical guide to better health, he offers specific strategies to 

· lower your levels of "lethal" LDL cholesterol
· raise your levels of "hero" HDL cholesterol
· develop new habits that make healthy living easy and natural
· adjust your lifestyle in order to stay off of expensive medications
· and more 

Your aging process depends on the health of your arteries. Dr. Furman's advice will not only give you extra years but, even more important, it will improve the quality of those years, beginning today.

My Review:

This book is a great resource for anyone who is dealing with heart concerns, cholesterol concerns or other health issues that affect the heart. It is full of a lot of medical information, yet is not overwhelming. The author writes in such a manner that an everyday person understands all the medical jargon without becoming lost in technical words. There are a ton of tips for getting healthy and avoiding heart problems, even if there is a family history to take into consideration. A well-written book that is full of great information. 

A great read that I highly recommend.
