Knowledge is life saving power! This easy new test is life saving information to share with all of your treasured girlfriends.


What if I told you I was just with the most incredible psychic who told me how I could alter my future and gave me life saving information. Would you go see her? Of course you would, you wouldn’t be able to resist. Most likely, you would be demanding that I give you her contact information. Well girlfriend, I can, but first you have to answer some questions and be prepared with some facts about yourself. It is said that all women posses some form of psychic energy, so you may have guessed where this is all going, but, stay with me because this may indeed save your life or the life of the women you love.

Any good psychic needs to know a little bit about you in order to predict the future accurately. OK, are you ready to start?

  • Do you have a family history of Heart disease?
  • Do you have Diabetes? Do you have High Blood Pressure?
  • Do you have high cholesterol?
  • Do you smoke?
  • Do you have a stressful life?
  • Do you have a sedentary life style?
  • Are you over weight? 

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you should explore getting tested for heart disease. According to the new guidelines set forth by the American Heart Association, heart attacks are the leading killer of women—six times more than breast cancer. So ladies listen up. It is not just a man’s disease, you need to take control and know the facts.

According to Dr. Mary-Ann Malloy, a cardiologist at the Loyola University Medical Center in Chicago, “Coronary heart disease in women doesn’t usually take off until menopause because in the past a women’s life expectancy didn’t extend much longer than that.” After menopause or a total hysterectomy, women’s bodies experience a drastic reduction in the female hormone Estrogen. “When Estrogen levels drop. you’ve just lost your best friend.”, says Dr. William Castelli, director of the Framingham Heart Study.

We are all accustomed to think that a sharp pain in the center of the chest accompanied by pain radiating down the left arm are the usual symptoms associated with a heart attack. Well, in women the symptoms of a heart attack may be different. Instead, women may experience indigestion, shortness of breath, insomnia and anxiety. Can you imagine that most of the major research in cardiovascular disease excludes women? There is however, an abundance of data on men. For example, we know that a simple aspirin taken once a day helps prevent heart attacks in men. Does it do the same in women? No one knows.

Now for some good news: my two “psychics,” Albert E. Barrette, managing director, and T.J. Matarazzo, R.T. technical director of Inner Imaging in New York City introduced me to the EBT Heart Scan (Electron Beam Tomography), the most effective method of predicting, and yes I said predicting heart disease. According to Albert E Barrette, this FDA approved test takes only forty seconds. "In that time, by identifying cardiac plaque we are able to see the earliest stages of coronary artery disease as much as fifteen years before symptoms occur,” says Barrette. Its accuracy rate is between 98 and 99%. I learned from T.J. Matarazzo, that the test is painless, you don’t have to undress, and there are no needles or dyes used. The radiation is minimal: less than four round trips from New York City to LA.

The EBT Heart Scan is now used by leading cardiology institutions worldwide including Inner Imaging at Beth Israel Medical Center in New York City, UCLA Medical Center in California, The Mayo Clinic in Arizona, Florida and Minnesota and Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, to name a few. Although the EBT Heart Scan is only covered by Medicare with a doctor’s prescription the actual cost is just several hundred dollars. We girls spend more than that at the beauty salon a year getting our hair highlighted, cut and blown dry, not to mention the yearly expense of all those manicures and pedicures we treat ourselves to. Although our appearance and "upkeep" is important to our self-esteem, I have never heard of a trip to the salon saving a girlfriend's life!

The U.S. president , his wife, mother and father as well as the vice president and some members of Congress all have this test. Isn’t your life as important as theirs? The EBT Heart Scan definitely does a much better job of predicting the future than a crystal ball and tealeaves. Check with your doctor to find where in your area you can have the EBT Heart Scan and share this life saving information with all your treasured girlfriends.
