A colleague wrote … “Last week I read an article you posted about a colleague with a low pulse rate. Mine has been low for several months, so I decided to be my own health advocate and ask for an EKG. My doc had an opening so I went in the next day. To cut to the chase … it turns out that the top half of my heart isn’t communicating properly with the bottom half. I will have a pacemaker implanted next week. Had I not read your article, I most likely would have put it off with potentially devastating consequences. I am 44 years old and I believe I am dodging a bullet.” Ed. note: See “Success Stories” for prior article(s).
