Dallas, TX (PRWEB) February 22, 2013
Dr. Shyla High is a renowned Dallas-based Cardiologist who is also an in-demand speaker and globally recognized as The Women’s Heart Health Expert. As such, she has released her new book this month on Amazon to coincide with February’s National Heart Disease Awareness Month. The book is entitled: "Why Most Women Die – How Women Can Fight Their #1 Killer: Heart Disease"(Jackpot Press, Inc., an imprint of Wyatt-Mackenzie Publishing, Inc.), and the positive book reviews and requests for media interviews have been overwhelming.
In a short period of time, Dr. High has received media interview and article requests from regional and national outlets such as: NPR’s popular radio show, It’s Your Health; Redbook Magazine; The Wall Street Journal; Austin Women Magazine; KTXD-TV shows, Texas Daily and Texas Living; and RadioMD’s hit show, Staying Well. Plus, due to this important topic and her vast expertise, many of the Radio and TV shows Dr. High has recently appeared on have already booked her for additional segments.
“We are in the midst of a major women’s health crisis, especially with the huge aging female Baby Boomer population, yet less than 13% of women even know that their number one killer is now heart disease,” explains Dr. High, the book’s Author. “Forever everyone has been taught, including the medical community, that heart disease and heart attacks are a ‘man’s’ health issue. But the reality is that more women now die from heart disease then men do! Therefore, I’m glad the media is paying attention to my new book and helping me spread the word about this serious health epidemic.”
Aside from the positive media coverage received, medical professionals are also offering praise for Dr. High’s book.
Dr. Harman Kaur shares, “Women's health is receiving well-deserved attention in this book, especially with symptoms being different than men. It’s a great detail for the general public to start getting educated not only for getting treated in a timely fashion but also prevention of cardiovascular disease. As a Medical Oncologist, I could not agree more about prevention and early treatment of heart disease in women. Both cancer and heart disease being competitive ‘killers in women’, this book comes highly recommended.”
Dr. High felt the urgency to write the book based on her private cardiology practice in Dallas, TX where she found herself answering many of the same patient questions repeatedly. She knew there was a huge amount of good, helpful information about heart health available to the public but that it was primarily focused on men’s heart health. That is when Dr. High decided a wake-up call to society was needed, along with providing practical, life-saving tips for women of all ages.
In addition to her new book and private practice, people also benefit from Dr. High’s expertise in a variety of ways online, such as: Twitter @ShylaHigh and on her Facebook Page @ShylaHigh. Through her social networks she provides important health information to educate and support health and wellness for women.
