"This is an incredible book with tools that are far reaching. Dr. Kennedy successfully distills proven data from sports psychology in order to create his B-R-E-A-T-H-E technique. In addition to healing hearts, the vital information in this book will inspire companies to innovate, students to excel in academics, and athletes to perform at their highest level." —Robert Kriegel, Ph.D., bestselling author of If It Ain't Broke . . . Break It!

"The 15-Minute Heart Cure is an outstanding review of a timely and important subject, stress and heart disease. Dr. Kennedy provides a much-needed stress-relieving tool that will help heal many hearts."—Ralph Brindis, M.D., M.P.H., F.A.C.C., F.S.C.A.I., President-elect, American College of Cardiology

In The 15-Minute Heart Cure, Dr. Kennedy explains how stress triggers a fight-orflight response that can harm your cardiovascular system. He arms you with powerful guided vision and breathing techniques that help you stop stress in its tracks and keep your heart pumping as it should through every challenging situation. Dr. Kennedy also provides tools to protect your heart from common stressful triggers including difficult commutes and traffic, caring for a sick loved one, or preparing for elective surgery. This very practical guide helps you feel great, perform better under stress, and save your life, all at the same time.

    Simple and effective.

    Breathe technique instantly relaxes. Imagery helps focus relaxation on specific heart disease processes. Prevention is the goal for any disease.
    These are easy exercises you can do anywhere and in 15 minutes!
