panel at the center since it was developed about a decade ago. With blood work, saliva testing and DNA samples, she looked at Lauralee’s genetic predisposition to cardiovascular disease to assess the cause of the stroke and her lifetime risk of another stroke. One genetic test can actually pinpoint how your body will respond to exercise and diet. Doneen feels strongly that using genetics as a guidebook can prevent someone from ever having another heart/stroke event. “We should never allow a person who has had a cryogenic stroke to leave the doctor’s office just waiting for the next one when we can prevent the next one,” says Doneen. You don’t have to have had a heart attack

everyday, whether she feels like it or not. She exercises and says honestly, “I hate it!” But she does it to stay alive. “It’s not a choice of I could do that tomorrow.” After all, cardiovascular disease is the number one killer of Americans. Nearly every 25 seconds, someone will have a coronary event, and about one every minute will die from such an event. Lauralee also flosses her

everyday. For her “flossing is not optional,; I want to live.” She basically eats a diabetic diet made up of foods on the low glycemic index, no processed foods, and very few carbohydrates. She doesn’t smoke, which is a heart disease risk factor, nor does she drink alcohol, knowing too much is a risk factor, and she works to reduce the stress in her life. Basically, that’s a prescription for healthy living for anyone, regardless of your heart disease and stroke risk. And it’s critical for those with risk factors.
