Keeping Your Heart Healthy Takes More Than Just Diet and Exercise Heart disease is the number-one killer in America today, and although you can find an abundance of advice on heart health, much of it is incomplete. The truth is, your physical health is inextricably linked with your spiritual, mental, and emotional health and you can’t fully heal one area without addressing the others.   In Spiritual Secrets to a Healthy Heart, Kara Davis, MD, combines the most current medical research with biblical principles and practical health tools to give you everything you need to keep you--and your heart--healthy.

Dr. Kara Davis’ latest book is simply amazing. For those who scoff at the Bible or doubt its validity, she cites dozens of medical studies that verify following scriptural principles is good for our health. For example, she describes one study that evaluated more than 1,000 patients with coronary heart disease. It found that participants with generalized anxiety order had a 62 percent higher rate of a recurrent heart incident or death from this disease than those with a more relaxed outlook. She also cites medical evidence of an optimistic outlook literally helping us live longer, and that high-quality marriage can protect against cardiovascular disease. This book is not only worthy of your reading time, it makes an excellent reference volume. Suffice it to say that Paul’s instruction (in Philippians 4:8) to think about “whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable” is more than good advice. Dr. Davis helps demonstrate that those words are a prescription for a healthy heart.
