Reduce your risk of heart disease.

The Heart Health Problems Our Country Is Facing

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. The American Heart Association estimated the total cost of cardiovascular disease in 2015 exceeded $320 billion. It is largely preventable with diet and exercise.

Unfortunately, cardiovascular disease is one of the most misdiagnosed and mistreated conditions in medicine. Over the past decade science has learned a tremendous amount regarding what causes heart disease, but the medical establishment is still operating on outdated science from over 40 years ago.

For example, it is a now well established in the scientific literature that eating cholesterol in the diet has no discernible impact on serum cholesterol levels in most people. Even if it did, the level of cholesterol in the blood is not the driving factor behind heart disease. Organizations like the National Lipid Association are working hard to raise awareness of these new developments but most of the general public and healthcare profession still are operating in the old paradigm.

Heart Problem Symptoms You’re Probably Experiencing:

High cholesterol is a symptom and not a disease. It is a sign of an underlying problem. If you are given a drug to decrease your cholesterol without investigating the cause, it is suppressing symptoms instead of improving function. Cholesterol-lowering drugs may be necessary for some, but the initial step should be to investigate any root causes contributing to the symptom.
