The Heart Series Program

Posted By on Thu, Jan 20, 2011 at 8:00 AM

The following announcement and essay was submitted by Richy Feinberg.

The Foundation for Cardiovascular Health, a 501(c)3 non profit Community Foundation, will be offering the “Heart Series Program.” It was created by Charles Katzenberg MD, a preventive cardiologist and Edna Silva RN. It is a comprehensive, medically-directed, evidence-based, 12-week program for the prevention and reversal of coronary artery disease. The program is right for anyone who wants to prevent, halt, stabilize and reverse coronary artery disease. Two 12-week programs will be offered, Tuesday evenings starting February 1st from 6 to 9 p.m. and Wednesday afternoons starting February 2nd from 1 to 4 p.m. You must register for the program. Call Richy Feinberg for details and to register at 797-2281

Change Your Lifestyle and Save Your Heart

Every year during the holiday season, we read many articles in the newspapers and magazines about heart disease. We are constantly reminded that heart disease is still the number one cause of death in the United States for both men and women. Unfortunately, there is too much emphasis by newspapers and magazines advising you about what you will be doing wrong; shrugging off chest pain, forgetting or skipping medications, not able to get medication refills when traveling away from home, heavy meals, too much salt, too much alcohol, too much fatty foods, possible strokes and hospitals running out of heart pumping machines. Not a comforting holiday story.

I find these articles extremely troubling because I had a heart attack in 1994, a week later; I had quadruple bypass surgery and two months later another heart attack. Obviously, a story about heart disease grabs my attention. My name is Richard (Richy) Feinberg.

Wouldn’t it be more in the holiday spirit if these articles would be pro-active? Instead of reading about doom and gloom, how’s about if we take a positive approach to Coronary Artery Disease and make a constructive, “I WILL take good care of my self, commitment,” and ‘I WILL’ accept a heart healthy lifestyle as part of my New Years resolutions.”

One year after bypass surgery I was still in pain, depressed, concerned about the future and unable to return to work. As the characters in the Wizard of Oz, who were looking for a brain, a heart, and courage, I was also looking for something, a program to regain my life, my health and my sanity. In 1994 I was blessed to have discovered the “Heart Disease Reversal program. Because of the program, I have enjoyed a healthy heart for the past seventeen years.

Prevention begins with knowledge that motivates changes in lifestyle. The Heart series is sponsored by the Foundation for Cardiovascular Health, a 501(c)3 non profit community organization. It is a comprehensive, medically directed, evidence based, 12-week and 36 hour hands-on-program, designed for anyone who wants to prevent, halt, or reverse coronary artery disease. Participants meet weekly for a 3 hour session in which medical experts from the fields of cardiovascular health, nutrition, exercise, communications and Tai Chi, talk about and demonstrate heart healthy living.
