She hasn’t been christened a ‘corporate doctor’ for nothing. Rekha Shetty, a professionally qualified medical and psychiatric social worker, has been keenly involved in programmes for preventive healthcare in corporate offices for many years.

She has now come out with a useful and interesting book, which is a must for all stressed-out urban dwellers who want a healthy heart without using drugs.

Based on the principle that a healthy mind leads to a healthy soul, this is a self-help guide to help reverse heart disease and prevent heart blockages. The chapters, ‘Nava rasa and their impact on the heart’, ‘The three-way path to a healthy heart’, ‘Heal your heart naturally’, ‘The zero heart attack diet’ etc., are not just enlightening but very simple to understand and follow.

That’s, in fact, the USP of the book. The book also outlines a practical way to a healthy heart by improving your happiness quotient.
