February 11, 2015: February is American Heart Month. Each year in the U.S., 1 in 4 deaths are caused by heart disease, making it the leading cause of death for American men and women.
Also, approximately 720,000 Americans will have a heart attack each year – an alarming number that sadly isn’t surprising when one considers that almost half of Americans have at least one of the three key risk factors for heart disease: smoking, high blood pressure, or high LDL cholesterol.
In this episode a physical therapist outlines the signs of a heart attack, the risk behaviors for heart disease, and the healthy behaviors necessary to avoid heart disease. She also explains the cardiac rehabilitation process that awaits patients who are treated for a heart attack.

Just like humans, pets may need rehabilitation after an accident or medical procedure, or to help manage a chronic condition.
MedVet Rehabilitation practitioners provide effective and personalized physical rehabilitation using state-of-the-art equipment and techniques to maximize the opportunity for full recovery. MedVet Rehabilitation Practitioners have completed advanced training in veterinary physical rehabilitation.
Many pets respond well to rehabilitation, including those with orthopedic, neurologic and medical conditions. We also use rehabilitation to help pets live a more complete and active life by providing geriatric support, obesity management and athletic conditioning.
So what happens when you finally admit to yourself that you have a drug addiction problem? For many individuals the situation becomes critical and often times can result in unfortunate situations such as being ostracized by their families and friends. In many cases the drug addict chooses suicide as a way to escape the addiction cycle and in many other cases, death through disease and or incarceration if the individual does not seek the professional guidance from a drug rehabilitation center and of course .... a little help from the Man upstairs in the form of Divine Intervention....
Drug rehabilitation (often drug rehab or just rehab) is a term for the processes of medical or psychotherapeutic treatment, for dependency on psychoactive substances such as alcohol, prescription drugs, and street drugs such as cocaine, heroin or amphetamines. The general intent is to enable the patient to cease substance abuse, in order to avoid the psychological, legal, financial, social, and physical consequences that can be caused, especially by extreme abuse. Treatment includes medication for depression or other disorders, counseling by experts and sharing of experience with other addicts. Some rehab centers include meditation and spiritual wisdom in the treatment process.
Join Carlos Montenegro to discuss the “pros & cons” of Drug Rehabilitation centers vs. Spirituality & Divine Intervention.

On today's episode of Getting Social with Miriam, the topic of survival and recovery will be discussed. I will be interviewing Erica Tucci who is a certified life coach, licensed massage therapist, Reiki master, author and Tarot reader. She also was a corporate manager at a Fortune 500 company until she had a stroke in June 2011, which turned her world upside down. Since then, her focus has been to help provide inspiration and encouragement to others who face their own life-challenging experiences. She also continues to do the work she was doing before her stroke, helping women find their "yin radiance" through their authentic voice and their own healing. She has been interviewed numerous times on international radio shows and blogs, and her book Radiant Survivor: How to Shine and Thrive through Recovery from Stroke, Cancer, Abuse, Addiction and Other Life-Altering Experiences has been endorsed by renowned figures. She has a program for women called “Yin Radiance: The Journey to Inner Balance” that she developed shortly before her stroke, and is developing a trauma recovery program based on her book Radiant Survivor.

BROTHERS AND SISTERS ... TAKE CARE OF YOURSELVES
Health disparities between African Americans and other racial and ethnic populations are striking and apparent in life expectancy, death rates, infant mortality, and other measures of health status and risk conditions and behaviors.
When you look at the 10 Leading Causes of Death for African Americans, you find that most of them are substantially preventable by making some lifestyle changes. The question becomes, do we, as a people, have access to that information and secondly why are we in this situation in the first place.
Join Alex Primo, Asha Zuri, and Joe Whitfield Thursday at 9 pm EST as we explore the sicknesses and ailments that plague our people and some possible ways to remedy them. We will look at common issues such as Heart Disease, Cancer, Stroke, and other health concerns of Melanated people.
African Americans in 2009 had the largest death rates from heart disease and stroke compared with other racial and ethnic populations.
From 2007-2010, the largest prevalence of hypertension was among adults aged 65 years and older, African American adults, US-born adults, adults with less than a college education, adults who received public health insurance (18- 64 years old) and those with diabetes, obesity, or a disability, compared with their counterparts.
The prevalence of obesity among adults from 2007-2010 was largest among African American women compared with white and Mexican American women and men.
