My friend Zen swears by Heart + Body
Also, My friend Zen, who lived in rural Saskatchewan, Canada (now Kelowna BC) loves the Healthy Hearts Club extract and how it helped him (his story is completely different than mine because he suffered a severe heart attack and was lucky to have survived it!). He swears by Heart & Body Extract because he feels it has really helped him feel better while he recovered AFTER his heart attack - he told me that the extract really helped him get his energy back including regaining lost circulation.  He contacted me online to tell me how thankful he was to have found this natural remedy.

• Do you have Sitting Disease?... I believe I do...

If you answered yes to the above question... and you care about your heart and your health... then, I highly suggest you watch the short video below - right now!

Knowing this simple, powerful info and easy remedy could literally save your life... Watching it has certainly taught me a lot - and literally woke me up... and so, I want to share this important information with you so it may help you...and please also share it with your loved ones - and I welcome your comments below...

This video is definitely worth the short amount of time to view... it made me realize that I SIT waaay too much on my duff during the day each and every day.  (Yikes!)...

I thought my 1-3+ walks a week was enough but it's not.  I used to be a heck of a lot more active when I was younger though now... my work has radically changed where I'm not nearly active at all - I now realize and know that I have SITTING DISEASE for sure.

I now work at a desk in front of a computer for most of my day and so, as a result I am really threatening my life more than I thought... whoa!

From watching this video - I've learned that inactivity is one of, if not one of the biggest reasons why we suffer from so many ailments and diseases... including heart disease, high blood pressure and hypertension.

A few of the stats that Dr. Mike Evans mentions in the video is that...

• If a woman would just simply walk for about 1 hour a week she could reduce her heart disease rate by almost half - now, that's powerful!  ...And, the good news is you can break that half hour a day down into 10 minute increments throughout the day!
• The worst combination is when you're OBESE and NOT active...  
• Sooo... get this - it's so simple... and not very hard at all - we just have to simply GET UP and go for a  half hour or more walk - especially those of us who work at a desk all day... 
• If you walk for just 11-20 minutes a day, you can lower your blood pressure by 12%.... + if you walk over 21 minutes a day, you can lower your BP by 29%... add another 10 minutes to that, you can lower it again by another 12%... wow again = powerful!
And... LOW FITNESS is the strongest predictor of DEATH!  

So... please... if you care about feeling better and want to take better care of your heart and your overall health... get moving for at least a half hour or more a day - it's the single best thing we can do for our health!

Have a great day... and enjoy your walk!

I know I will.... :o)

• Signs of Heart Attack in Women - Myocardial Infarction

Last year we had had dinner with a friend at an event we were all attending - a lovely dinner banquet and concert that followed after.  I remember how we all really enjoyed the buffet dinner though realized later after the concert that our friend seemed to have left abruptly.... We wondereed why she had left to go home early without saying good bye.  Later that night I had sent her an email to say hi to see how she was but didn't hear back.

It wasn't until a couple days later that we learned through other friends that she had died later that same night of a massive heart attack - it happened right after she got home.  She had managed to call 911 sensing that something was terribly wrong - but it was too late as she died when they arrived at the hospital.

I remember back... while sitting with her at dinner that she had mentioned at one point that she had felt extremely tired more than usual... but had sluffed it off to just doing too much being busy with her new business.  So, we assumed the reason she had gone home early was because she was just tired.

She was only 59 years of age - much too young to die - especially when her business was just starting to take off and flourish.  Our community was devastated and shocked.  I couldn't believe it.  How had this happened?  This experience certainly sparked me to learn more about women and the symptoms we can experience related to heart attacks and strokes.

And so, recently, a good dear friend recently sent this email to me about an ER Nurse's experience and I wanted to pass it on as it could help get the word out about how women can experience heart attack symptoms very differently than men.

After reading this woman's story I thought this was some good wise info about Female Heart Attacks - Myocardial Infarction (AMI) and how they can happen at any moment… I invite you to read more about what a Myocardial Infarction on Wikipedia here >>

Women/female heart attacks are and can be quite different and a lot of us don't know about the symptoms…

Did you know that women rarely have the same dramatic symptoms than men have when experiencing a heart attack?  Most of us are aware of the classic symptoms like… the sudden stabbing pain in the chest, the cold sweats, the grabbing of the chest and dropping to the floor…  Here is the story of one  woman's experience with a heart attack and her symptoms - which were very, very different:

...I had a heart attack at about 10:30 PM with NO prior exertion, NO prior emotional trauma that one would suspect might have brought it on.  I was sitting all snug and warm one cold evening, with my purring cat in my lap, reading an interesting story my friend had sent me, and actually thinking, 'aaah, this is the life - all cozy and warm here in my soft, cushy Lazy-Boy chair with my feet propped up.

A moment later, I felt an awful sensation of immense indigestion, much like when you've been in a hurry and grabbed a bite of sandwich and washed it down with a dash of water, and that hurried bite seems to feel like you've swallowed a golf ball going down the esophagus slow motion and it is most uncomfortable.  You then realize you shouldn't have gulped it down quite so fast where you should have chewed it more thoroughly with a nice drink of water to hasten its progress down to the stomach.  This was my initial sensation -- the only trouble was that I hadn't taken a bite of anything since about 5 pm much earlier.

After, that feeling seemed to subside... though, the next sensation i felt was like little squeezing motions that seemed to be racing up my spine (i describe this in hind-sight, that I suspect it was probably aorta spasms)… these racing feelings were gaining speed as they continued up and under my sternum (the area of my breast bone, where one presses rhythmically when administering CPR).

This fascinating process continued on into my throat and branched out into both jaws. Aha!  I thought... I now stopped puzzling about what was actually happening -- we all have read and/or heard about pain in the jaw as being one of the major signals of an MI heart attack happening, haven't we?  I said aloud to myself and the cat, "Dear God, I think I'm having a heart attack!"

I lowered the foot rest on my lounger dumping the cat from my lap, and attempted to take a step but fell right down on the floor instead.  I thought to myself, if  this is a heart attack, I shouldn't be walking into the next room where the phone is or anywhere else...  but, on the other hand,  if I don't try and call, nobody will know that I need help,  and if I wait any longer I may not be able to get up in a moment.

I  pulled myself up with the arms of the chair,  walked slowly into the next room and called 911…  I told the woman on the other end of the call that I thought I was having a heart attack -- due to the pressure building under my sternum and it was radiating into my jaw.  I didn't feel hysterical or afraid, I was just stating the facts to her.  She said she was sending the Paramedics over immediately, and asked if I was near the front door and if so, to go and un-lock the door and then lie down on the floor where they could see me when they arrived.  

I did as she asked un-locking the door and then laid down quietly on the floor as instructed and I guess I promptly lost consciousness… as I don't  remember the medics coming in, their examination, lifting me onto a gurney or getting  me into their ambulance, or hearing the call they made to the ER Hospital while we were on the way, but I did  briefly awaken when we first arrived and saw that the radiologist was already there in his surgical blues and cap, helping the medics pull my stretcher out of the ambulance.  He was bending over me asking questions (probably  something like "Have you taken any medications?") but I couldn't make my mind interpret any of what he was saying, nor form any answer,  and nodded off again, not waking up again until later when I learned that…  the Cardiologist and surgical team had threaded a tiny angiogram balloon up into my femoral artery, into the aorta of my heart where they also installed two side-by-side stints to hold open my right coronary artery.

I know it sounds like all my thinking and actions at home  must have taken at least 20-30 minutes before calling the paramedics, but actually, it took perhaps 4-5 minutes before the call, and fortunately I was lucky that both the fire station and hospital were only minutes away from my home, and my Cardiologist was all ready to go into the OR and get going on re-starting my heart (which had stopped  somewhere between my arrival and the procedure) and installing the stints.

Why have I written all of this to you with so much detail?  Because I want all of you who are reading this to know what I learned first hand by my own experience - so that you can tell others to be educated and aware of what can happen...

1.  Be aware that something very different is happening  in your body, not the usual men's symptoms but inexplicable things happening (until my sternum  and jaws got into the act).  It is said  that many more women than men die of their first  (and last) AMI heart attack because they just didn't know they were actually having one and commonly mistake it as simply indigestion, then take some Maalox or other  antacid/heartburn remedy and go to bed, hoping they'll feel better in the morning when they  wake up... which often doesn't happen.  My women friends, your symptoms might not be exactly like  mine, so I advise you to call 911 if ANYTHING is unpleasantly happening that you've not felt before or totally out of the ordinary.  It is better to have a 'false alarm' check up than to risk your life guessing what it might or could be!

2.  Note that I say, 'Call 911 as soon as possible.'  And if you can, take an aspirin right away -- that can help.  Also know that time is of the essence!

Do NOT try to drive yourself to the ER - you are a hazard to others while in this state on the road.

Do NOT have your panicked husband or partner/friend speeding down the road being distracted while being concerned with what's happening with you -- instead of focusing on the road.

Do NOT call your doctor -- he/she doesn't know where you live and if it's at night you won't reach him/her  anyway, and if it's daytime, their assistants (or answering service) will tell you to call the 911 anyway. The 911 Paramedics are equipped with the necessary emergency equipment that you will need immediately and can reach you much faster.  Your doctor will be notified later.

3.  Don't assume it couldn't be a heart attack because you have a normal cholesterol count. Research has shown that a cholesterol elevated reading is rarely the cause of an AMI (unless it's unbelievably high and/or accompanied by high blood pressure).  AMIs are usually caused by long-term stress and inflammation in the body, which dumps all sorts of deadly hormones into your system to sludge things up in your body.  Pain in the jaw can wake you from a sound sleep.  Let's be aware and the more we know and are educated, the better chance we have to survive.

Be a good friend and share this article with all your friends (male & female) and family who you care about so they can learn the different signs women can experience - this information can help save a precious life!

Other important signs to be aware of…

One most important sign is feeling really, really tired - even if after enough sleep.

• Trouble breathing or speaking

• Trouble sleeping

• Feeling sick to the stomach

• Feeling scared or nervous - sudden anxiety for no reason

• New or worse headaches

• An ache in the chest

• Feeling "heaviness" or "tightness" in the chest

• A burning feeling in the chest or bad heart-burn

• Pain in the back, between the shoulders

• Pain or tightness in the chest that spreads to the jaw, neck, shoulders, ear, or the inside of the arms

• Pain in the belly, above the belly button

Also know that one can help prevent a devastating heart attack or stroke by exercising daily, lowering one's stress levels... keeping one's arteries cleaner and clearer by eating a good clean diet that includes daily fresh fruits, vegetables including heart-healthy herbs... and Heart and Body Extract is just one wonderful heart friendly natural remedy that can certainly help.  It has helped me and it could help you!

Wishing you all vibrant health always...

• Sharon Harris, of Healthy Hearts Club talks about Heart and Body Extract...

A Note from Sharon Harris, Past President of Healthy Hearts Club...

Here's a bit of Sharon's story on how Heart & Body Extract and these special heart drops came to be...

Sharon Harris, HHC President
"In my 30's I developed some signs of cardiovascular disease.

The doctor diagnosed me as having enlarged heart and heart murmur. He did not recommend any specific treatment at that time. By my mid 30”s I had heart palpitations and heart arrhythmias.

At times it was so bad I could be standing in the kitchen and suddenly without warning I would keel over. Fortunately I caught myself before falling to the ground. One time I did black out while sitting beside my husband in an airplane. I was unconscious for several minutes but was OK.

At age 45 going on age 46 I developed high blood pressure or as the doctors call it essential hypertension. It was very scary for me and I desperately tried a number of alternative remedies to try and help myself .I tried vitamins, minerals, almonds, celery stalks, vitamin B12 and Folic Acid, oriental teas, herbal formulas, increased exercise... nothing worked. 

I was afraid, as I knew high blood pressure leads to damage and can cause heart attack or stroke. After visiting the doctor on 3 separate occasions and after consistently getting readings of 160/110 I was put on a diuretic medication to control the blood pressure. I lasted on the pills for 2 days I have to say the side effects are very nasty. I felt confused, I couldn’t think or talk coherently, I felt lethargic, and I had to pee like a racehorse. 

During this time I also developed water retention. It was showing up as edema in my feet. It was so bad I could not wear my own shoes I had to wear my husbands. Gone were the days of wearing high heels. At best I could wear oversize clogs with dresses.

I said to myself finally after searching and searching for something to help myself if I cannot find something to help myself lets create it, so I hired an excellent Master Herbalist and together we created Heart and Body Extract.

 Fortunately, not long after I quit taking the blood pressure pills, Heart and Body Extract became available. Within days of using Heart and Body Extract the heart palpitations and arrhythmias were gone. Within two weeks of using the product, my blood pressure went down to 120/70. It has maintained like this for 8 years, give or take a few points. This is with out any medication whatsoever. Within 30 days of using the product the swelling in the feet and ankles had disappeared. I can now wear my running shoes and high heels! 

My husband’s shoes are returned back to him, the rightful owner. I have a lot more energy now and I feel great. I find I have a really good sleep at night and wake up rested and ready to go. I no longer require afternoon naps and feel energetic throughout the day. Before using Heart and Body Extract I would be exhausted by 3:00 p m and would require a minimum 1- hour nap to refresh myself. It took six months of using Heart and Body Extract for my enlarged heart to go back to normal size.

Now my major purpose in life is to tell as many people as I can about this wonderful product Heart and Body Extract. We have helped thousands of people to date. I was on a bad road to poor health; my doctor said I don’t want to see you dead at age 45. (Neither did I, I wanted to live)... Try this product, it can work...it can only be good for you."

• What Are The Main Causes Of High Blood Pressure?

What are the main causes of... and how do I know if I have high blood pressure?  

Get to know the signs...
That is actually a difficult question to answer, as there is no one primary cause for this very common disorder.

Thousands of people are diagnosed with high blood pressure, or hypertension, every year and in most cases, the condition has its root in a combination of factors unique to each individual.

The other commonly asked question regarding hypertension is how do I know if I have high blood pressure.  In this case, the answer is that most likely you don’t.  

In most cases, high blood pressure has no true outward symptoms, which makes it even more dangerous.  You can be completely unaware that you have it until it reaches the level where it is contributing to more serious problems like heart attack or stroke.

For the most part, high blood pressure can be tied to several common factors including weight, family history, lack of exercise, poor diet and use of substances such as alcohol and tobacco.  

Also, the more overweight you are, the greater your risk of developing high blood pressure as the arteries have to work harder to supply blood to the rest of your body.

When asking what are the main causes of high blood pressure, genetics is often to blame.  High blood pressure can run in families, so it is important to be aware of your family medical history.  A diet high in salt and low in potassium can also contribute to elevating blood pressure, as can the use of stimulants.

While medical science may not be able to specifically answer the question how do I know if I have high blood pressure, what it can tell us is how to combat the condition.  Limiting salt intake and taking a potassium supplement can make a significant difference, as can getting plenty of exercise and reducing stress.  In many cases, doctors will prescribe medication to help regulate blood pressure.

But there are also natural methods that can be used to lower blood pressure without relying on traditional medications that can carry harmful side effects.

One such remedy is a natural herbal-based product called Heart and Body Extract. This is a liquid extract formula made from a carefully selected blend of herbs and other natural substances including Garlic, Hawthorne, Coleus, Motherwort, Bilberry, Mistletoe, Ginger and Cayenne...  Click here for more info on each herbal ingredient >>

Together, these natural herbal substances can provide the nutrients the body needs to function optimally.  They can serve to help open up the arteries and improve blood flow as well as thin the blood to help prevent possible blood clots. 

All of this results in a circulatory system that works much more smoothly, thereby reducing the strain on the heart and naturally helping to lowering blood pressure.

It can be hard to say what are the main causes of high blood pressure, but treating your heart right and helping it to function properly is not difficult at all. 

With a healthy diet, plenty of exercise and a carefully blended natural supplement like Heart and Body Extract, you can lower your blood pressure, improve your circulation and get back to living life to its fullest!

• Heart Healthy Living - Some Natural Ways to Lower Your Blood Pressure...

There are lots of ways to lower blood pressure naturally and here are some that might work for you... I know some have definitely worked for me and I'm only glad to pass on for you...

Some Heart Healthy Living Tips...

Stop Smoking: 
First off, if you smoke, it's recommended that you quit smoking right away - just doing that will lower your blood pressure significantly.

As we know the dangers of smoking is really hard on the body overall but smoking particularly makes your blood vessels and arteries constrict thus raising blood pressure. Just quitting smoking will really help lower your blood pressure in a huge way. It will also save you lots of money too!

Regular Excercise:
If you're like me and don't move much because of your work - do try to find a way to get moving! Simple, gentle exercise is a great way to lower high blood pressure naturally.

I myself work at a computer for most of my work day. Since I started doing work from a desk was when I saw my weight go up and my blood pressure go up too.

Try to keep your body weight as close to your ideal weight. When we gain weight our blood pressure goes up. So, I now make an effort to exercise at least 3 or more times a week.

Simple gentle walking briskly for 20 minutes will make a big difference. I also jump on a mini-trampoline (rebounder) which is really good for the body as a whole.

Walk for a half hour minimum briskly every day if you can or minimum 3 days a week. Walking is the best exercise for assisting to balance blood pressure.

Cardio-vascular exercise, which raises your pulse rate is the best. Simple walking is far superior to swimming for effectiveness and can be done anywhere.

Drink Alcohol in Moderation:
Drinking alcohol in excess is really hard on your heart and many other major organs of the body especially the liver.

Alcohol also makes our arteries and blood vessels constrict as well. Try to drink only 1-2 drinks a day or less - that will really help lower your blood pressure.

Watch your Stress Levels:
It is said that almost up to 98% of all disease is caused by stress.  If you experience high levels of stress in your life - this could also be a major factor and big sign that your blood pressure is high.  Being stressed causes tension on all your organs, your blood vessels and arteries. Find ways to lower your stress... Try slowing down... learn meditation, be mindful of your breathing and breathe more deeply to help release stress and tension... exercising regularly and moving your body will help release stress.  Review your lifestyle - if you work long hours try to find more fun in your life... finding balance between work and play is the key to good health.

Keep Hydrated - Drink Clean Water:
Be sure to drink eight 8oz glasses (up to 2 litres a day) of water a day. Inadequate hydration makes our blood thick - which can lead to high blood pressure.

Stop Eating High Fat Foods:
Eating a diet rich with natural organic foods like fresh fruits and vegetables will help to lower your blood pressure plus help unclog your arteries too... Curbing the fatty foods will help keep your weight down and will also help lower your blood pressure.

Stop the Salt: In North America we eat way too much salt. Read your food labels and you will be astounded to how much salt is in everything. Use natural sea salt instead of regular table salt if you have to have salt.

Regular salt has so many other additives added that are not good for the body and our health. Sea salt is very well balanced that include trace vitamins and minerals, which your body needs to maintain a healthy homeostasis.

Eat a Banana a Day:
Bananas are a very high source of Potassium which is an essential nutrient for balanced blood pressure. Check your natural fruit juices too as some of the wonderful juices available are high in Potassium. Also, all citrus fruits are high in Potassium as well.

Cranberry Sauce:
Eating about a half cup of cranberry sauce a day is very good for blood pressure. Cranberry offers protection of preventing the oxidation of cholesterol, which leads to the formation of arterial plaque and clogging - which will prevent the free flow of blood which increases blood pressure.

Cranberry works quickly to help improve the ability of your capillaries to hold blood and decrease blood resistance. Cranberry is very good for you! It is also very good for your urinary tract helping keeping it clear of infection.

Eat Celery and/or drink Celery Juice:
Celery acts as an excellent diuretic that promotes the flow of urine through the kidneys. The failure of the kidneys to regulate salt and fluid levels is an important reason why blood pressure increases.

Celery also acts as a vasodilator by relaxing the arteries to reduce blood flow resistance. Celery assists balancing the production of prostaglandins that help regulate blood pressure.

So, dear folk, above are some wonderful heart healthy living tips to help lower your blood pressure naturally...

And of course another very wonderful and fast way to help lower blood pressure is to simply add Heart and Body Extract to your new and healthy lifestyle...
By taking 15 drops 3 times a day and holding it under your tongue for 1-2 minutes will quickly go into your blood-stream and arteries to help clear and clean out your arteries of toxic waste material and arterial plaque.

Heart and Body Extract is an amazing natural formula made up of heart healthy organic herbs (10) specially designed to give your body the necessary vitamins, minerals and amino acids to help heal the body and that includes balancing your blood pressure naturally and without nasty side effects or drugs.

Thank you Healthy Hearts Club!

• Add Some Tasty & Healthy Garlic to Your Thanksgiving Mashed Potatoes...

Garlic Mashed Potatoes...

Canadian Thanksgiving is just around the corner and thought I'd pass this one on...

This is one of my favourite recipes for mashed potatoes - I grew up on a farm where my family grew all varieties of potatoes... My mom got pretty creative with all kinds of potato dishes for sure! ...And, here's one of them.

What works best for this recipe is the good ol' standard and common Russet potato... or if you'd like something special to go along with that next Thanksgiving Dinner, use some Yukon Gold Potatoes - Yum!

Plus, potatoes are chocked full of vitamin C and many other beneficial nutrients that are good for your health AND heart.
Garlic Mashed Potatoes

3 pounds russet potatoes, peeled and cubed
6 garlic cloves, separated and peeled
1/2 cup fat-free milk or dairy-free Rice Dream
1 tablespoon trans-free margarine
Ground black pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley


In a large stockpot, cover the potatoes with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain the potatoes thoroughly and return to the stockpot. (Don't overcook!)

In a small saucepan, cover the garlic with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until tender, about 10 minutes. Drain the garlic.

In a food processor or blender, combine the garlic and milk. Puree or mash until smooth. Add the pureed garlic and the margarine to the potatoes. Mash to desired consistency. Season with black pepper to taste. Garnish with parsley and serve immediately.

My Easier Variation...

What I do is just throw about 3-6 peeled cloves of coarsely chopped fresh garlic right in with the potatoes as they are cooking along with a couple of bay leaves... Note: You can use as many cloves as you like - whatever your taste is.

Once the potatoes are done, pick out the bay leaves as they don't mash very well.. drain and mash the potatoes and garlic all together - that way you get the wonderful and nutritional garlic that will help keep your arteries clean and clear.

I think this process is much better because during the cooking process, the garlic and the bay leaves infuse right into the potatoes giving so much more flavour than doing it separately.

Plus... it's much less fuss... and less to clean up!
