I received this email from Andrea a few months ago and wanted to share it as part of our Herbies of the Week series. It's a little different than what we normally have on this column each week — not just that Andrea wrote me a letter (as opposed to me interviewing her) — but I loved her honest perspective about her personal journey.
[Editorial note: Andrea has since married, hence her beautiful wedding "after" picture]
"Just wanted to drop you a note to tell you what a big fan I am! My husband-to-be had a routine check-up and clean bill of health in April 2012. He wasn't overweight, his blood pressure normal, and his cholesterol was around 160, which we believe was very good and he exercised regularly. He took no medications. The doctor had him take a stress test based on his family history of heart disease and his age of 51. The treadmill test came back negative showing he had no blockages. All was right in our world.
