Blessed Health by Angela Ebron

Book Description

Blessed Health offers African-American women the medical information and inspirational motivation they need to achieve total health -- a healthy mind, body, and spirit. Many black women will go to church all day every Sunday but won't take one day out of the year to get a Pap test and mammogram done. Yet that yearly doctor's visit could help save lives. Often the first people to pray when a serious illness strikes, black women may be the last to seek timely medical care. As a result, they are suffering with, and dying from, manageable illnesses such as heart disease, obesity, cancer, and diabetes more than any other group in the United States. It doesn't have to be that way. Don't wait until a health emergency happens before turning to your faith and your physician. You can achieve optimal health by arming yourself with medical knowledge and a strong spiritual base. Research has proven that a well-nurtured spiritual self can help to replenish, rejuvenate, and safeguard your physical self. Written by a prominent African-American OB/GYN and a highly respected journalist, Blessed Health is a personal health and spirituality guide for every stage of a black woman's life. Included here is important information on: * How your body works, and what can be done to prevent or help solve common health problems, including pelvic infections and fibroid tumors * How to find a doctor that ministers to your physical and emotional needs * How to successfully cope with illness, from a faith perspective * How spiritual wisdom and prayer can decrease the harmful effects of stress * How best to take care of your breasts and reproductive organs, and decrease your risk of heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and cancer and much, much more, including the latest on managing menopause.
