The Buena Salud Guide for a Heathy Heart

About the Book

"It has taken me seventeen years since my mother died from heart disease to be able to write extensively about this topic. All my research has documented that the amount of progress that has been made in this short time is not only amazing, but it could have saved my mother's life. . . . By presenting information in this book in a manner that includes the experiences of real people, it is my hope that you will be able to take steps to develop and maintain the healthiest heart possible."

—From the Introduction by Dr. Jane L. Delgado

In a warm and conversational tone, this invaluable guide details everything readers need to know about the leading cause of death in the U.S.:

  • how the heart works
  • how heart problems develop and what can be done to avoid them
  • what we know about heart disease in Hispanics
  • Dr. Delgado's 10-point, life-changing program for maintaining heart health
  • a quick-reference guide on the most common conditions, diagnostic tools, and procedures
  • key questions for your health provider
  • tools to help you monitor your own health
