Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the number one killer of men and women in the United States, according to the American Heart Association. Lack of awareness is one cause. Many don’t know that certain types of CVD, like heart attacks and strokes, may be preventable.

Norwegian author and veteran nurse Annelie Holmene Pelaez knows that certain lifestyle changes can make a world of difference in the fight against CVD. Her new health guide, “Si Ja, Say Yes to Better Life and Death: An Introduction to Health Literacy & Meditation” (published by Balboa Press), is built on the framework of Abraham Maslow’s hierarch of needs and teaches readers how to improve the quality and quantity of life in a predictable and facile way.

Written in clear, accessible language, “Si Ja, Say Yes to Better Life and Death” outlines the risk factors for CVD, such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure, high blood sugars, stress and smoking, while teaching readers about health literacy and meditation as tools to prevent and/or live better for those who already have CVD. With experience caring for thousands of patients with CVD, Pelaez explains factors that make up a healthy body and healthy mind.

More than a guide to preventing CVD, “Si Ja, Say Yes to Better Life and Death” also contain advice and guidance for reaching self-actualization. It emphasis the importance of meditation for realizing personal potential and achieve success in all areas of life.

Praise for “Si Ja, Say Yes to Better Life and Death”:

“An utterly appealing and easy-to-read guide to healthy living. Annelie makes you feel as if she’s right by your side – knowing your struggles because she’s been there, and nudging you as your kindest friend might to stay on track.”

— Jeff Ourvan, author of “The Star Spangled Buddhist”
