Help the AHA/ASA close the gap in stroke awareness by increasing stroke knowledge across America. Make sure that you are equipped as a stroke hero to save someone's life in case of a stroke emergency. I wish I could have been there for my friend. Don't let it happen to someone you care about. Be ready!
Have you been told by someone to "Eat to your heart's content?" Usually this phrase is used when you are a guest in someone's home and they want you...
Dear Doctors, Last year on Mother's Day, I contacted one of your colleagues by leaving a message with an answering service that I had bad heartburn. ...

It's been said that a man with health has a thousand dreams, while a man with no health has but one. Don't you owe it to yourself, your team and your family to not only have a thousand dreams, but also have the energy and engagement to make them happen?
In my field of cardiology, a series of studies show that more than 80 percent of all heart attacks can be prevented by a remarkably consistent lifestyle that is neither difficult nor expensive.
I sat up and as much as I could, gathered the heart monitor's leeds to the side, and brought Aura's body sort of close to mine. I pressed her ear against my chest. We were speechless, so she might as well just listen to my heart, and I might as well just breathe.
After the heart attack I knew that time was precious. If I wanted to repair the relationship, I was going to have to do it sooner rather then later.
Heart disease remains the No. 1 killer for men and women alike in the Western world. Our efforts in February to focus on heart prevention must concentrate on early detection and treatment, with disease reversal the goal.
February is American Heart Month and it is a great time to reflect on our health and get back on track, making healthy lifestyle changes for our familia.
For me, health is a little less undeviating. There are times when I'll do a two-day juice cleanse, feel great, and then have an In N Out hamburger for breakfast the next morning.
Although this message is for anyone at increased risk for heart disease, it is especially directed to ladies because the incidence and resultant mortality rate is so high for women.
I also talk to a lot of cardiac arrest survivors, and the one thing they all have in common -- other than being alive -- is that someone stepped up and performed CPR.
As February dawns, you're seeing a lot more red and more hearts. While that is partly due to Valentine's Day, it also is because -- for the 51st straight year -- the White House has designated February as American Heart Month.
This is all about improving the quality of care in real time. Whereas studies show what has already happened to a patient, sometimes months after discharge, this is an opportunity to make a difference when it matters most -- while care is being given.
