Thank you for sharing this story. This is so common, not only with heart disease but for any ailment. The scary thing to me is that most people take Doctor orders as factual and do not question the authority. I think time restraints and also pharmaceutical companies making so much money off of doctor orders, cause many people more strife.
The best thing though, there is a great site such as EmpowHer where you can do some research yourself and be prepared to pose some great questions. Thank you EmpowHer for the tools necessary for good health.
