Kissed by Death is a self help book based on the authors own story and illness. The book addresses the technical aspects of CHF; causes, symptoms, diagnosis and medications. It talks about simple aerobic and resistance weight training exercises to strengthen the body including the heart. It focuses on fat in the diet, foods, reading ingredient labels, low sodium diets and building sodium databases. The second half of the book deals with the Mediterranean diet and profiles the author’s own low-sodium, good-carbs, Mediterranean Style Eating Plan, a version of the Mediterranean diet which has been essential to the success of his recovery.
