Heart Health for Women: A Unique and Alternative Approach: The Impact of Relationships on Heart Health
For decades, heart problems were considered to be a man’s issue. However, once women entered the work force with great ambitions they eventually came to exceed men in the propensity for heart attacks and heart disease. With so many pressures, including a frequent pattern of being pulled between being with their children and wanting or needing to work, their heart pays a price. Frequently it is said “My heart is pulled.” And it is. In addition, because the symptoms are so different from those of men, problems often go undetected until much later, consequently, more women than men die of heart disease and heart attacks. With warmth, understanding, and hope, Dr. Dorothy shows how amazing it is that women intuitively know a great deal about our hearts and yet how little we actually work with what we know.
Yes, the propensity for heart disease or heart attacks may be genetic – for some it is and – yet for some who are afflicted there is no medially history. Regardless, of the origin of the issue, heart health is something we have power over. Power to both change our present medical story and the power to change our future. In this presentation she calls us to begin by looking at our personality to continue, or begin, a healthy diet, as well as exercise but most importantly to know that we are holistic beings, we are walking holograms, and our emotions and relationship styles impact our heart immensely.
This talk is a humorous yet insightful adventure into self-understanding and the possibilities for change in behavior and beliefs in order to support your health. Dr. Dorothy offers a common sense, and well-researched, look into how our personality impacts our health while explaining how different personalities hold their stress differently. Some are more prone to migraines when heavily stressed, while others tend to get strep throats, or back problems, etc.
Understanding your particular personality, its strengths and weaknesses, along with the diseases most common to your particular approach to life, let’s you see the changes that are possible and how they can be eliminated or at least minimized. Dr. Dorothy’s ability to make the complex easily understood is a gift as she provides information and understanding of how much power we have in impacting our own health. Because how you hold your stress varies according to your particular personality style. Dr. Dorothy shows how, more than genetics, your personality impacts your health.
Dr. Dorothy speaks of the need for dreams in our lives if we are to truly develop our potential, claim our passion, and live our purpose. In addition, our dreams are the visions that give us direction and that call us to invest in our lives and in ourselves.
Regardless of where we are at the moment, if it is seen as preparation for where we are going, we will, ironically, be more fully be invested in our present. Employee engagement, invested parenting, and personal development become the standard. Five simple, but not always easy, steps have consistently been shown to be necessary to get out of your own way, prevent self-sabotage, and fly into the next dream along the way.
