It’s All About Heart!

Throughout the month of February, we are constantly reminded to love, usually romantic love. However, for Lotus Network’s followers, this month, with the help of Rose Women’s Center, we are nurturing our hearts. Do you know that the leading cause of death for women in the United States is heart disease? Does this surprise you? There is a good reason. Heart disease has been thought of as a man’s disease, however, almost as many women die as men each year. “Women do not present in the same way as men,” explains Dr. Foster. Heart attack indicators differ from men to women.

Between what happened to Damar Hamlin, (a 24-year old Buffalo Bills football player), who suffered a cardiac arrest during an NFL game earlier in the month, and again after Lisa Marie Presley (54-year old) who had a fatal cardiac arrest on January 12, it has brought to our attention how vitally important it is to take care of our own hearts. Our hearts are the powerhouse of our whole bodies, so we must provide our hearts with the attention and care it needs.

Studies have shown that 43% of women who have had a heart attack didn’t experience any chest pain at all. Women should look out for less obvious symptoms, such as:

  • Extreme Fatigue
  • Pain in the upper back, shoulders, neck, and jaw
  • Profuse sweating
  • Nausea
  • Dizziness
  • Sleeplessness

So, what can we do to stay healthy? With the assistance of Rose Women’s Hospital, we have worked diligently to bring you part 2 of our Connector Series on Heart Health. On February 8th, please join us in person and learn from a panel of heart health experts and heart disease survivors about the most groundbreaking diagnosis, treatment, and care strategies. Don’t miss this afternoon of education, empowerment, and connection in an incredible hospital dedicated to women’s care. Click HERE to register.

Our Lotus Lady this month is Tracy Baxter. Tracy believes that every moment is precious and should be celebrated. As you read her story, you will feel the love shared throughout her formative years. She turned that love and passion into a thriving business at the young age of 59. It’s Never Too Late to Create Something Special! Click HERE to read her story.

Sheri will tell her story and walk us down her path of transformation and motivate us to DREAM BIG and reimagine our lives. Learn how to become a worthy steward of your own life!

February is all about love. So, let’s wrap our arms around each other and stay healthy. Let’s ensure that our hearts are in the best condition they can be and help spread the word. Make time for your health checkups, exercise when you can, listen to your body, pay attention to those silent signals, and please, look after yourself! You are worth it!

From our hearts to yours,

Lisa and Leslie
