You are such an inspiration Mod*Mom.
YOu've been through so much. I'm so glad you're heart is recovering!
I really enjoy your blog and information with the giveaways.
I listened to the 1st one and I can't wait for the other podcasts. CoQ10 is something I used to take regularly, but ran out of and forgot all about.

Mod*Mom I am so happy to hear that you are doing better and that your heart is recovering. I love your blog and enjoy reading it everyday. Thank you for being such an inspiration!

By Anonymous Lindsey, at 2/11/2008 6:26 AM  

I had no idea. So happy you're recovering naturally.

By Blogger Naomi, at 2/11/2008 7:19 AM  

It's nice to know that you can find information when you need it for such a common problem.

By Blogger sassy2, at 2/11/2008 2:22 PM  

This is fantastic!!!!!
Our whole family has a history of cardiovascular problems and I want to protect us with good nutrition! I'm loving these podcast series and your reminding and rewarding us listeners! YAY MOd*MOM!

By Anonymous Nancy, at 2/11/2008 2:41 PM  

Thanks for informing us about your condition. I checked out the pod to see if it had any helpful information for me to pass on to my grandmother. Thanks again.

By Blogger Uniquely Yours, at 2/11/2008 5:38 PM  

The podcast was great and I will be watching for part 2. I was glad to hear some of the things I have been doing to improve my health will also improve my heart health. Thanks for steering me to that website and please enter me in the giveaway.

By Anonymous kate5405, at 2/11/2008 10:46 PM  

thanks for listening + the support!
healthy hearts are for everybody,not just grandparents :)

By Blogger modmom, at 2/11/2008 11:23 PM  

These are fantastic. So often, I am overwhelmed by health issues that I have no idea where to start. I'm also thrilled to hear you're doing well.

By Anonymous amcmoore, at 2/12/2008 4:32 AM  

Thanks for the information, when ever I think of someone with heart problems I always assume the person is older!

By Blogger Steph, at 2/12/2008 11:50 AM  

I liked the podcast. I think as women we all need to learn more about heart disease.

By Blogger Shelly, at 2/12/2008 12:30 PM  

You've got a great blog, too... I appreciate you popping in and introducing yourself. Best of luck with your recovery. :)

By Blogger Lei, at 2/12/2008 2:16 PM  

This information is important and necessary. I am always interested in learning more. Wishing you the best of health always.

By Blogger pearl, at 2/12/2008 3:12 PM  

I often worry about heart issues, since you hear so much about it being such a "big" disease for women these days. It runs in my family in the men, but it's still so scary. God bless!

By Blogger Teri, at 2/12/2008 4:59 PM  

Hello, Thanks for sending me to the podcasts. My husband just started a serious diet to loose weight and the ideas will definitely help him. Sincerely, Cindi

mod*mom- glad to hear of you are recovering. I listened to the first cast and can not wait for the next one. I never give much thought to my heart but after listening I know that there are little things I can do to ensure that I have a healthy ticker.

By Blogger Antonina, at 2/13/2008 6:24 AM  

Very interesting! Thanks!

By Blogger Jenni, at 2/13/2008 7:28 AM  

I frequent this aisle at Whole Foods, but had not discovered the podcasts ... I'm glad to know and will pass along the link to others too. Thanks so much!

By Anonymous Catherine, at 2/13/2008 7:29 AM  

I didn't know they did this! Very very cool. Thanks for letting us know!

By Blogger Uptown Girl, at 2/13/2008 8:13 AM  

I enjoyed the podcast - very clear and concise. Heart disease is something that can affect everyone and knowledge is key.

I always enjoy their podcasts, but they're a little slow on getting them up. I was glad they had the first one up this time :0)

By Blogger Bebemiqui, at 2/13/2008 8:39 AM  

I enjoyed the podcasts... I am going to subscribe!

I just turned 30 and I used to brush off recommendations for heart disease prevention. I'm realizing how much more attention I need to pay towards my lifestyle. Thanks for the info.

I grew up with a heart condition, so I'm always eager to read about (or listen to) anything related to heart health. The podcast was informative and a good common sense reminder to eat many different kinds of natural, heart-healthy foods with lots of color, texture and flavor. wakeyes at yahoo dot com

By Anonymous Whitney A, at 2/13/2008 1:17 PM  

It was great. Thank you for sharing.

By Blogger Joy, at 2/13/2008 1:37 PM  

The podcast was a bit of an eye-opener for me; I've never really thought of myself as a candidate for heart disease. Thanks for helping to raise awareness of this!

By Blogger Bonggamom, at 2/13/2008 2:35 PM

Whole Foods podcasts are awesome! I can listen while working on other things. I just learned that I have a blood condition that predisposes me to stroke, heart problems, etc. I'm now VERY interested in this type of info. Thanks!

By Blogger Jen, at 2/14/2008 5:36 AM  

Mod Mom--
I love your site and visit often. Just wanted to let you know that I linked to you in a recent post I wrote about the Venturo Modular Home because I saw that you had talked about it, too, and had some more groovy photos that I thought my readers would like to see. Thanks! --Julia :-) (http://hookedonhouses.wordpress.com )

Great podcast, it was very informative. I always knew heart disease was out ther ebut had no idea how bad it has gotten. Looking forward to part 2.

Very informative podcast. In Feb 2002 I had a heart attack. I was 35, thin, and active. The docs could not believe it. I am so glad that there is so much more information out there for women now. The year after my MI, is when they actually started focusing on women's hearts.

By Blogger Lissete, at 2/15/2008 7:11 AM  

i think being healthy is so important...i wish me and my family would start eating more healthy...i think the infomation was great...heart problems are very common in women i hear....

Great info! I *heart* whole foods!

By Anonymous karen dixon, at 2/15/2008 12:37 PM  

I love that they actually referred to their nickname of "Whole Paycheck" in one of the podcasts. They're getting better and better at the podcasts, more succinct, better info.
thanks.

Wow- it looks like most of their traffic is from you! Great work. The podcast was full of helpful reminders and tips. I would love info, if anyone wants to share, on which brands of vitamins seem to be most potent/produce the best results.

Thank you!

It was great that they mentioned looking for hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated oils. So many products say they have 0 grams of trans fat when they actually do!

By Blogger littlemamak, at 2/22/2008 3:36 PM  

Thank you for your link to very informative podcast. I love wholefoods overall (they stop using plastic bags, yay!), and I am glad to know that they have podcast for our better health. wakana at earthlink dot net

By Blogger wakana, at 2/22/2008 4:15 PM  

Listened to the podcast... good intro for beginners. I knew the info, but if I was referring the podcast to someone, I might hope that it had morer ver specific pointers in it. What type of exercise for the busy person on the go would help? Is it important to take digestive enzymes when taking all those supplements?
More detailed info like that...

Such a great way to get alot of us the information. Not only for us, but for our daughters now, and to come!

This whole CoQ10 is something I'm going to be looking into!

Thanks again.

By Blogger Lilith Silvermane, at 2/24/2008 8:42 PM  

great information. I don't get enough VD and loved learning about how to get it naturally. I don't eat salmon or stay outside in the winter very much. I should start taking a daily vitamin.

By Blogger lace, at 2/25/2008 4:35 PM  

I swear I posted a comment on this podcast weeks ago but it's not here! Who knew there were so many thing to think about besides cholesterol? This is a great giveaway! I'd love it!

By Blogger KJ, at 2/26/2008 7:02 AM  

Love hearing how we can nourish our heart with healthy foods and controlling inflamation.

By Blogger Tara, at 2/28/2008 2:08 PM  

Where do my comments keep going? I've re-posted twice on this giveaway, and some others, and can never find my comments after! That was on eo fhte best nuggets of info on women's heart health I've heard...coQ10? Inflammation? It's not just cholesterol. THANKS! I long to live near Whole Foods!

By Blogger KJ, at 2/28/2008 3:28 PM  

hi kj: i see 2 comments from you today. i don't know about your past comments. could they have been on the last whole foods podcast post? i've hostessed whole foods giveaways once a month for several months. or maybe you commented on a reminder post instead of the giveaway? or their post only? or didn't hit publish?

By Blogger modmom, at 2/28/2008 3:34 PM  

When people find out that I struggle with high cholesterol, they are shocked. I was tested when I was 5, and it was always around 300. I'm active, eat well, and am tall and average weight -- but it's in the genes. My dad and sister both have high cholesterol too. The podcast really is a great reminder to stay on top of things. (P.S. I posted a comment a couple weeks ago, and can't find it either -- weird).

By Blogger Angela, at 2/28/2008 6:46 PM  

thanks so much for the link...I have a lot of listening to do now with all the OTHER podcast they have!

By Blogger Stephanie, at 2/29/2008 3:17 AM  

i didn't even know whole foods had podcasts! thanks for the info.

and i just recently found your site + i am so excited about all of the great links you have here!

By Blogger Stefan, Sarah and Lukka, at 2/29/2008 6:24 AM  

Thanks for that link. I am the child of a heart attack survivor so I take heart health very seriously. That being said, it is also easy to make bad choices when it comes to food--mainly when I am in a hurry and end up snacking on junk. I needed a reminder and this did it--so thanks.

By Blogger sara berry, at 2/29/2008 8:23 AM  

How wonderful that you're promoting heart health to the right audience! we need to start now to have a healthy heart when we hit our 50s! Thanks for the giveaway too! monakarif at gmail dot com

I'm glad many of you listened to the podcast + left a comment on the podcast post with modmom.blogspot.com in the website field so you're entered in this promotion!

(remember, leaving a comment here doesn't qualify you to win prizes)

By Blogger modmom, at 2/29/2008 3:07 PM  

It was very informative. My mom just had open heart surgery and my dad has major heart issues. They have both been told that it's mostly hereditary and nothing they could have done would have prevented heart problems... eating healthier could have helped but not to the point of eliminating them. I want to try to eat as healthy as I can to prevent more serious problems. Thanks for promoting the issue of heart health. It's so important. We hear so much about cancer and it's nice that heart health is enjoying more publicity.
