Cardiovascular and Congenital Heart Disease in Women

I encourage women to be proactive and talk to their doctors if they notice even the slightest change in their day to day energy level. Just one conversation with their doctor could save their life."

Preventive Tips, Symptoms and Non-Invasive Treatment for Heart Disease
Dr. Sindhu Koshy
Cardiologist
Ascension's St. John Providence
"Even severe heart disease can show up with the most subtle symptoms, so it's important for women and men to be educated on their health and risk factors. As doctors, we can consult and medicate you, but it's the patient who needs to make the right nutrition and lifestyle choices in order to prevent heart disease."
In honor of American Heart Month in February, Dr. Koshy is available to speak on preventive tips, symptoms and non-invasive treatment for heart disease. She is passionate about educating people on what they can do for their health and how good nutrition and exercise are mandatory for a healthy heart. She is fluent in French and Malayalam.

Are Plummeting Cold Temperatures Driving Millions of Americans to Depression?
Dr. Frieda Birnbaum
Research Psychologist, Psychoanalyst
"Lack of sunlight and bitter cold temperatures over a prolonged period of time can cause Seasonal Affective Disorder. When our bodies are discomforted, it impacts our mental state of well-being. This disorder can be challenging for some, especially those who already have depression tendencies. There are a number of ways to treat the symptoms of SAD, and one of them to find ways to appreciate the good things about winter. If winter is forcing you to be indoors more often, you can utilize that time to organize and do administrative work on your home. You can also use this time to catch up on your favorite TV series. Because of what you're doing with your time now, you'll be able to experience more outdoor activities in the spring and summer."
Based in the New York metro area, Dr. Birnbaum is author of "What Price Power: An In-Depth Study of the Professional Woman in a Relationship." She's an expert on depression, women's issues, and attaining happiness.

The Psychology of Magic and Illusion
Carl Christman
Los Angeles Magician
Guide Media LLC
"Magicians have a long history of using psychological principles to fool the public. It is not that the hand is quicker than the eye, but that the mind is very predictable and easy to misdirect. Many of the principles used by magicians can be adapted by others to help them read people and influence them more effectively."
Christman, a Los Angeles magician, is a teacher, author, and mentalist. He is a member of Hollywood's famous Magic Castle and active in the Los Angeles magic scene. Christman is a popular entertainer at upscale magic venues and colleges throughout Los Angeles, where audiences marvel at his ability to get inside their minds.
