Year after year heart disease is listed as the #1 killer of Americans. Biomedicine points to diseases of too much cholesterol, too high triglycerides, high blood pressure, or coronary artery blockage as the cause of heart disease. Chinese medicine observes these symptoms as only the effect not the cause. Heart disease is a lifestyle issue and the natural treatment to reverse this disease is to modify the diet, improve circulation, reduce inflammation, and look at how active the woman is. Only the empresses in ancient China suffered from these problems because of lavish meals, limited exercise, stress, and a life of leisure.
