Decoding Heart Disease
by Dr. Mohamed Shalaby

Millions of people across the country suffer from a collection of cardiac conditions grouped under the umbrella term heart disease. Yet few people truly understand what this diagnosis means—and more importantly, what they can do to mitigate the effects of the disease.

Now, renowned cardiologist Mohamed Shalaby, MD, FACC, draws from his years of experience successfully treating heart patients and collects his wisdom and knowledge into one accessible volume.

Told in narrative form, this book introduces readers to a number of patients with an array of different forms of heart disease. Each case begins with the patient’s presenting complaint and follows along the process of physical examination, lab work, testing, diagnosis, and discussion of treatment between the doctor and patient.

Heart Health Action Plan

Dr. Shalaby discusses aspects that make a person more vulnerable to heart disease as outlined in his book Heart Heath Action Plan.

One of the most pronounced is not getting enough healing sleep. Another is sleep apnea and if not treated will continue to damage your body.

Research show depression and stress increase your chance of having heart problems.

Medically approved relaxation techniques can reduce your chance of a heart attack or stoke by thirty percent.
