Jini Cicero says, “Beautiful Job”

Jini “Jinifit” Cicero, well-known fitness blogger and educator, chose Your Amazing Heart as her book of the month recently by saying, “The wise among us know that to teach or explain something well, one should be able to break the subject down to a level that a child can understand.  Dr. Lee and Mr. Huth have done a beautiful job accomplishing just that.”

The National Institutes of Health, as well as the New England Journal of Medicine, have reported that for the first time in America’s history, the young people of today may have life expectancies less than their parents.  This unsettling trend is due primarily to heart disease.  Thankfully, heart disease is preventable, especially when children learn to take better care of their health while they are young.  Please tell your friends and family about Your Amazing Heart today!  More...

Michelle Mokrzewski is a teacher at West Side Middle School in Groton, Connecticut, and she was instrumental in Groton Public Schools becoming the first entire school system to add Your Amazing Heart to its curriculum.  Thank you Michelle!

Your Amazing Heart Added to Curriculum

(On February 12, 2014, Dr. Lee received this thank you from Michelle Mokrzewski.)

My STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) students love learning why exercise and nutrition are necessary for maintaining a healthy heart.  With your interactive e-book, students get to hear and see how a healthy heart pumps and supplies blood and oxygen to the body.  They also hear what a weak heart sounds like, and they want to know how they can make their hearts strong and healthy.

What you have done with Your Amazing Heart is so important for the health and wellness of our youth.  If we start the conversation now with our children, they can bring the message home to their parents, and even later on to their own children.  I would strongly recommend bringing your books into all science, physical education and health curriculums. Thank you for teaching children how to live a long and healthy life!

“Reverse this Frightening Trend,” Warns Dr. Dave

(Written by Dr. Dave Woynarowski, who is considered to be one of the world’s most well-known age-management specialists, and is featured on Dr. Dave’s Best.)

It's easier to build up a child than repair an adult.  Dr. Edwin Lee (in Your Amazing Heart) reminds us of this as he takes care to inform our most precious resources, our children, about the benefits of taking care of their hearts. With the obesity epidemic on the rise, our children's life expectancy won't even be as long as ours!  That's unheard of!  How did that happen?  More...
