Dr Windsor Ting, a respected cardiac surgeon, and Dr Gregory Fricchione, an esteemed psychiatrist, propose the first book that will explore this relationship. The book presents compelling and significant research that insists when both the heart and the emotions are addressed, outcomes significantly improve.
The authors offer an overview of the latest research relating heart disease to personality, emotion, and a range of mental health problems. They discuss signs and symptoms of these problems, and suggest various medical and non-medical approaches to prevention and treatment. Medications will be explored as a critical component in this interrelationship.
