February 2013 Newsletter: Heart Health

Heart disease used to be considered a man’s disease.  Today more women than men die from heart disease every year.  It is the #1 killer of women in the world and it kills more women than all cancers combined!  Heart disease is definitely a woman’s concern.

The  American Heart Association created National Wear Red Day® to help bring awareness to heart disease as a women’s concern.  It’s not just a disease of older men.  Check out the video below of women who have been affected by heart disease – their stories are inspiring and heart felt (pun intended).  Share these with your mothers, sisters, daughters and girlfriends. Spread the word, we need to take care of our hearts!

With this in mind, the Women In Balance Institute has devoted the February issue of our newsletter to women’s heart health.  Read on to learn more about women and heart disease in The Heart of the Matter”, healthy eating for the heart in “Top Heart Healthy Foods” and about taking care of our emotional heart through libido enhancement in our valentine’s day article “Finding the sexual goddess within”.

Thank you for your continued support of WIBI and if you have questions or feedback, shoot us an email at info@womeninbalance.org
