Each day in America 3000 people have heart attacks, 1400 die, and 2200 undergo bypass surgery or angioplasty. The majority of these catastrophic events occur with little or no warning leaving us ill-prepared to deal with them. Two-thirds of the victims actually have seen a physician shortly before their illness and were reassured that there was nothing wrong with their heart! Many of the deaths and most of the heart attacks are the result of under diagnosis and under treatment, while 75% of the surgeries and angioplasties are due to over diagnosis and over treatment.

This book will teach you how to avoid becoming an accidental victim of the medical profession by learning about the weaknesses of the methods used to diagnosis and treat high blood pressure and heart disease, how patients are urged to undergo unnecessary bypass surgery or angioplasty more for the doctors benefit than the patient's, what your options are for diagnosis and treatment should you ever develop a heart problem, and how the heart can heal itself. Learn how HMOs and managed care plans gamble with your health and your life by providing only minimal care, and how they avoid more costly care by treating the symptoms rather than the disease. Without the information from this book, the doctor you select to treat you may be more dangerous than your disease.

Living Longer with Heart Disease is out of print and no longer available.

While How To Protect Your Heart From Your Doctor teaches the patient how to avoid becoming a victim of under diagnosis and under treatment, or over diagnosis and over treatment, Living Longer With Heart Disease takes up where the first book leaves off. Part I talks about why heart disease is often silent, what are the many risk factors that make heart disease more likely to appear, less well known complications of heart disease such as heart failure, why heart disease often goes undetected in the female sex, how stress affects the heart, and what are the various causes of chest pain that can be confused with heart disease and result in unnecessary surgery.

Part II discusses the modern way to diagnose heart disease, what tests should and shouldn't be used and why, what an abnormal test means, and how it should be used in tracking the patient's disease, what are the best drugs and their doses for the treatment of coronary artery disease, what are the effects of exercise on the heart, and a discussion of a host of misconceptions about heart disease and its treatment. The over inflated claims and under discussed side effects of bypass surgery and angioplasty are described with newer references, and are compared to the highly successful and safer alternative forms of treatment known as medical therapy. In contrast, both surgery and angioplasty are highly unpredictable and are often unsuccessful. If you have heart disease, or think you may get it, this book may save your life.

Statistical data implies that roughly 50% of fathers with children diagnosed as ASD leave their families, unable to handle "the loss of the perfect child." Even though Erik's father died suddenly in 1997, leaving him to grieve the "loss of the perfect dad," a legacy of love and faith have remained as the beacon of light to illuminate God's path for him.

Erik has chosen to use the chronology of his own life as a way of illustrating the kinds of things that helped him connect and become an active part of the family.

How Erik's father was able to bridge the gap between them is what Erik hopes to share with others as they travel the same road toward understanding and acceptance.

In 147 pages, with research references to the importance of a father's love in the development of the Autistic child, Erik describes his father's journey through grieving the loss of the "perfect child" while trying to find common ground from which to communicate.

Erik Weber was diagnosed with Autism, severe language disorder and retardation at 3 1/2 years old. A year later, the family was advised to "find an institution!" Today, at age 20, Erik is a full-time university honor student in International Development Studies. In addition to being a Southern California Special Olympics track and field gold medalist, Erik volunteers for their fundraising projects.

In his own words, Erik states, "Unconditional love and trustworthiness are born in a heart that understands humility and submission. God is the ultimate model for the qualities of which I speak. From His WOrds and examples, my own father learned to become what I call the 'perfect dad.' In writing my story, if I have inspired one father to 'take up the cross' and help bear the responsibility of his Autistic child's reclamation, then I have accomplished my goal. Likewise, if even one mom has been encouraged by my words enough to understand that 'miracles' are still possible, my efforts are rewarded. My Father's Love, both earthly and from Heaven's gate, is alive and well in my heart! From it, I draw strength, courage, hope, and the ability to persevere into whatever my future holds. May you experience the same renewal as you reflect on what I have said.
