In this eye-opening interview, Jim speaks with Carolyn Thomas. Carolyn is a Mayo Clinic-trained women’s health advocate, a heart attack survivor, and author of the book A Women’s Guide to Living with Heart Disease.
Carolyn and Jim discuss whether high blood pressure is always an indicator of heart disease—and what to do about it. As well as six of the biggest myths about women and heart disease, the recovery-boosting habits she adopted following her own heart attack, the deadly discrepancy between heart disease diagnosis for men and women, and the life-saving questions women aren’t asking their doctors about their heart health.
