    ………… *Hey Everyone* ………..
    There are two things to consider here…….
    *First* : All heart diseases and diabetes issues are lifestyle and diet disorders. Thus they happened to repeat in families.
    *Second* : Modern medicine has no answer to such diseases and disorders……..
    If you or anyone in your friends and family is suffering from any disease and have tried everything….. Still not getting satisfactory results……….
    Along with your current medication, *Consider taking the Natural treatment* with nutrition, Ayurvedic medicines and lifestyle changes……
    _There are no side effects,_ unlike chemical meds……..
    Gradually, you would be healed and get rid of all medication……..
    …..
    *What’s best its not even expensive* ……
    Do yourself a favor and give it a try…….
    Its 100% safe and effective……
    …………..
    Email me your issue to (harsh1984jain@gmail.com)

    *_You might save someone’s life_*

    I am a WomenHeart Champion and have been running a support group for women living or at risk of heart disease. And what Dr. Beckerman mentioned about the importance of supporting each other in our heart journey is so true.

    What I could hear was okay; what I couldn’t hear was the majority of what was said.

    Ughhh….I could hear this from some motivational speaker with a grade 9 education. Was hoping for something with more insight from a cardiologist.
