Valentines day“Heart disease kills 1 in 3 women every year, that is one woman every minute,” according to the latest studies. We have heard that heart disease is the number one killer in women in the US, why?

• Fatigue
• Shortness of Breath
• Indigestion, Upper Abdominal Pain or Nausea
• Jaw or Throat Pain
• Arm Pain (Especially the left arm)

By integrating acupuncture and Oriental medicine into your heart-healthy lifestyle, you can reduce your risk of heart disease by as much as 80 percent.
