A Book For Those with Chronic Conditions


Dear friends, 

If you live with chronic health problems, please consider getting Being Empowered for a Healthy Heart. It is a guide on how to self-manage your own chronic conditions, with an emphasis on heart and related chronic diseases. It also contains some of my poetry. It’s 6″ x 9″ with 340 pages, and its essence can be summed up with the following description…


Living with a chronic illness can feel like a constant battle. Conditions such as high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, COPD, and depression not only require vigilant management, but they can adversely affect your day-to-day functioning and deprive you of the quality of life you deserve. 

This book is designed to equip you with the tools you need to overcome the symptoms of pain, fatigue, shortness of breath, anxiety, and stress while effectively managing and reversing the diseases that cause them. By encouraging you to create personal, healthy living goals and then providing valuable tools to help you achieve them, this guide will give you the confidence you need to take control of your health.

Be inspired and revitalized as Dr. Chi takes you on a journey of self-discovery and empowerment through a combination of essential health information and heartfelt poetry—a unique fusion that will both strengthen the body and touch the soul.

In this book, Dr. Chi guides you to become empowered in the self-management of your chronic conditions, with each chapter containing exercises as well as health trackers to help you better monitor and manage your symptoms and conditions.
