Total Heart Health
A New Natural Strategy
For Total Heart Health
Is your heart at risk? Do you or a loved one suffer from heart disease, stress, high blood pressure, high cholesterol or cardiac other risk factor?
If so, Total Heart Health is for you. If you’re one of 150 million Americans who have heart disease, or risk factors like high blood pressure, high cholesterol, obesity, stress, or diabetes, this book is for you. If you’re worried about heart disease because a close family member had a heart attack or stroke, this book is for you. Total Heart Health offers a new understanding and practical approach to transform your health and well being.
Heart Disease, An Unchecked Epidemic
Today, cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death throughout the world. Nearly half the people in this country will die prematurely from heart attack or stroke. The majority of adults are at risk because of one or more heart risk factors. For example, 120 million Americans suffer from high blood pressure, that is either hypertension or pre-hypertension, a major precursor to heart disease. More than 100 million Americans have elevated cholesterol. Two thirds of adults and a high percentage of children are overweigtht. Diabetes is the new epidemic. Baby boomer women are in their menopause years and are at high risk for heart disease. Almost everyone is stressed.
Futhermore, despite hundreds of billions of dollars spent over the last fifty years to develop better diagnostic tests and treatments, the hazardous side effects of drugs and surgery for heart disease and other disorders now rank as the third-leading cause of death in America and similarly in other modern societies.
Why Has Modern Medicine Failed
To Eliminate Heart Disease?
Modern medicine focuses on fixing or replacing the “parts”, such as diseased arteries, instead of on reversing the underlying imbalances, which affect all the arteries in the body. The conventional approach to heart disease treats you as a sophisticated collection of tubes and valves, while it ignores you as a whole person, ignores your individual mind-body type, and ignores the ultimate causes of heart disease at the basis of your mind and body
With a limited approach, there are limited results. It’s possible to suppress your symptoms of chest pain or to lower your high blood pressure or high cholesterol levels with drugs. But, if you stop taking the drugs, the symptoms come right back. You may have endured unpleasant or harmful side effects of drugs or surgery unnecessarily—when you could have reversed or prevented the disease naturally, at its source.
Total Heart Health author Robert Schneider, M.D., F.A.C.C., physician-scientist-teacher has conducted over twenty years of clinical research into the basic causes of cardiovascular diseases and the most effective means to prevent and treat them. Co-author Jeremy Fields, PhD has over thirty years of research experience in neuroscience and human physiology. They both know from their groundbreaking research and clinical experience that the conventional medical approach to prevention and treatment of heart disease is not enough.
Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease
Through the Maharishi Vedic Approach to Health
If you are seeking ways to combat or prevent heart disease effectively, without harmful side effects, a powerful source of intelligence and healing is available, deep within your mind and body.
The Maharishi Vedic Approach to Health allows you to reach this source of intelligence and to re-establish the flow of biological know-how within your body. Balance is increasingly re-established in your physiology with this approach, for healing and prevention of disease.
Health benefits from the Total Heart Health program include substantial and long-lasting reductions in high blood pressure, reduced need for blood pressure medications, and reductions in high cholesterol, smoking, psychological stress, and drug abuse. Studies published in major medical journals indicate slowing or reversal of hardening of the arteries, and an increase in life span for long-term participants in the Total Heart Health program.
You may choose to try any of Total Heart Health program’s approaches to health. Each has distinct benefits, and using several or all of the approaches together creates a synergy that multiplies the benefits.
Part One of THH focuses on the Mind Approach. The Transcendental Meditation® program is a cornerstone of the Maharishi Vedic Approach to Health. THH describes the Transcendental Meditation technique, and presents the remarkable effects on reducing stress and improving health, especially heart disease and risk factors for heart health.
Part Two of THH presents the Body Approach, giving an overview of the physiology and the causes of heart disease from the perspective of the Maharishi Vedic Approach to Health. It offers practical, easy-to-use recommendations for preventing heart disease and its risk factors through diet, exercise, and daily routine.
Part Three of THH describes the Environment Approach. Near environment includes your home and surroundings, as well as the collective consciousness of the society in which you live. Far environment includes the planets and stars and their effects on health. THH offers guidelines for taking advantage of natural rhythms and cycles, and Vedic Sound programs to prevent heart disease and promote health.
