Health information is confusing. The reason is the use of medical terminology. Every field has words that are technical and specific to it. Unless you are part of that field, you wouldn't necessarily understand what is being discussed. Healthcare is no different. For example, most people don't know that myocardial infarction is the technical term for a heart attack. The difference about healthcare is that we are all affected by health issues.

Think about when you don't understand something. It's frustrating, isn't it? Now, think about if it is something related to your health that you don't understand. Not only is it frustrating, but it can be distressing. When you aren't feeling well, this only adds to your stress. So, should you take a course in medical terminology?

Although that could be helpful, who has time for it? That is where this book can help. Each topic is written in a format that takes medical information and explains what it is in non-medical jargon, easy-to-understand language. Also, each topic discussed examines the most common treatments and preventative techniques. In addition, every topic has a Fast Facts box, which is a quick reference guide covering the key points. Also, if you desire to learn more about a topic than is provided in the article, a reliable resource is supplied.

You want to be healthy and informed and this book will help make that a reality by demystifying your health.
