Mayo Clinic, one of the world's top medical centers, and Gaiam, the alternative health and wellness experts, have teamed up to bring you this integrated health action plan designed specifically to help you maintain a healthy heart and live life to the fullest.
This three-step action plan combines techniques that are helping many improve their heart health …
1. Start with understanding your condition. In this opening segment, you'll meet Mayo Clinic doctors who share essential information about your heart and your health — how to prevent leading heart conditions, and how to manage a condition you may already have using the most successful conventional and alternative therapies available today.
2. Eat well to feel better. That's the message in the second part of our action plan. You'll meet Donald Hensrud, M.D., Chair, Preventive Medicine, Mayo Clinic. Dr. Hensrud will take you grocery shopping, sharing his insights on how to shop smart and select everyday foods that you and your family can enjoy while promoting better health. You'll also meet a Mayo Clinic dietitian who explains practical, easy food choices that help you maintain a healthy heart and lose weight. We'll suggest what foods to eat and which ones to avoid.
3. Moderate exercise and stress-relieving techniques bring our action plan into balance. In this segment, you'll meet Rodney Yee, America's favorite yoga instructor. Rodney guides you through a series of simple, restorative yoga and stress-relieving meditation routines that are sure to bring new vitality to your life. These movements are designed to help you lose weight, improve circulation and reduce tension, which are some of the most effective steps you can take to improve your heart health.
Packaged with the DVD, you will also receive Mayo Clinic's 52-page booklet, My Stress Solution as an added bonus. This valuable booklet contains helpful hints you can follow every day to reduce stress and make your life more enjoyable.
