Heart Rending, Heart Mending: Saved by Medical Science, Healed by Ancient Wisdom, Marylou Streznewski

19.95

Highlighting the necessity of educating the women of America about the dangers of heart disease as their number one killer, this dramatic memoir takes the reader inside the trauma of open heart surgery using the actual surgeon’s notes, prose and her own poetry. Streznewski shows how her use of integrative medicine modalities taught her that she had to heal herself after the surgeons rebuilt her heart. This is not a book of medical advice; the author is not a medical expert. It is a cautionary tale of a survivor who did her homework and took responsibility for her own healing.

Marylou Kelly Streznewski's career has included theater, journalism, and the teaching of writing on high school, college, community and senior level. She served as poetry curator of the Bucks County Writer's Room, has taught workshops at the Pearl Buck House, and at various venues in the Bucks County (PA) area. She teaches a workshop at the International Women's Writing Guild's summer conference. An eclectic writer, her published work includes three poetry books: Rag Time and Woman Words,(J.G. Whitthorne Press) which are housed in the chapbook collection of Poet's House, and Dying with Robert Mitchum (Aldrich Press).
