Boost Blood Flow with PACE

In a recent letter, I told you that if you can move, you can exercise using my PACE principle. But maybe you still have a few doubts… Today, I want to share a letter from a reader who told me about his experience with PACE. To protect his privacy, I’ll use his initials, B.E. He is a regular reader and …

New Analysis Shows Link Between Vitamin D and Cardiovascular Disease

Conventional medicine still believes high cholesterol doubles your heart attack risk.1 If you’re a regular reader, you know this is flat-out fake news… But doctors continue to buy into this lousy advice and prescribe cholesterol-lowering statins. It’s what they were taught at medical school. And it’s what they continue to be taught in the Continuing Medical Education courses they must …

Strengthen Muscle and Reduce Pain

Increasing muscle mass in your biggest muscle group, your quadriceps, can help you live up to almost 50% longer. That’s the finding of a recent study. It found that older adults who strengthened this group of muscles twice a week lived 46% longer than those who didn’t. The study also reported a 41% lower risk of death from heart disease …

Red Wine Nutrient Reverses Lung Age

Not long after I wrote the book The Doctor’s Heart Cure, my office manager told me I had a call from Dr. William Castelli. He was one of the pioneering lead directors of the famous Framingham Heart Study. This is the most well-respected study of its kind. In the last 65 years, it has produced more than 3,000 articles in leading medical …

Can Eggs Reduce Your Risk of Heart Disease

Fifty years ago, the American Heart Association convinced millions of people to ditch nutrient-rich foods like eggs in favor of low-fat grains and starches. Since then, heart disease has soared to become the number one killer in the country. And eventually, the world. Of course, mainstream medicine and the AHA continue to blame this dramatic increase on high cholesterol. But …

Ignore AHA’s Fake Seal of Approval

I’m sure you’ve seen the red heart with a white check mark on the packaging of low-fat foods like cereal, bread, and crackers. Using the term “heart-healthy” in the same sentence as these cheap high-carb products seems wrong. But did you know that food manufacturers pay hundreds of thousands of dollars a year to get that “heart-healthy” checkmark on their …

Good Study, Bad Advice…

For decades, you were told that cholesterol is Public Enemy #1 when it comes to heart health. Today you see messages promising to lower cholesterol plastered on cereal boxes and other so-called healthy foods. Sometimes it comes as a “heart-healthy” symbol with a white check mark inside a red heart. We see the same propaganda from the scientific community as …

The Heart Cure that Cardiologists Ignore

Heart disease continues to be the biggest killer in America – and the world – for one simple reason: The health advice we are told to follow is just plain wrong. Giving up meat, eating low-fat foods, jogging, and taking medications will not cure your heart disease. But, there is a cutting-edge all-natural therapy that can… It’s called enhanced external counterpulsation, or EECP. …

AHA Backs Another Faulty Heart-Health Study

The anti-cannabis movie Reefer Madness is considered one of the most discredited films ever made. It was a propaganda film that helped fuel the failed war on drugs. It blamed every “evil” you can think of on marijuana use…including assault, murder – even a teenager’s descent into psychosis. Flash forward to today and medical marijuana is legal in 34 states and Washington, D.C. …

These Ignored Nutrients Could Prevent Cardiovascular Disease

For generations, Americans have been told that lowering fat and cholesterol is the be-all and end-all for good heart health. The American Heart Association has preached this claim as gospel since 1957. But, here’s what they’re not telling you… America’s obesity rates have tripled since the AHA made these recommendations. It’s no coincidence. Everything they’ve been telling you to do is wrong… …

How Steak Can Heal a “Broken Heart”

Every year, you hear dire warnings about elevated heart attack risks around the holidays. Usually, these are accompanied by bad advice that suggests eating beef and too much-saturated fat is somehow triggering more heart attacks. My regular readers won’t be surprised to learn I consider these reports completely bunk. Fats from natural sources like grass-fed beef don’t harm your heart. …

5 Minute Secret to Beat Blood Pressure

Earlier this week, I shared a couple of different approaches I use in my clinic to help patients lower their blood pressure… But it occurred to me that I left out one of the easiest – and most effective – methods. I’m talking about a focused breathing technique that decreases your heart rate and dilates blood vessels, reducing overall blood …

COPD, or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, is a silent killer

COPD, or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, is a silent killer that gets very little attention from the media or medical establishments. But this serious lung disorder is the third leading cause of death in America, behind heart disease and cancer. And it can become so severe that at times, you can barely breathe. Conventional wisdom says there’s no cure. Mainstream …

Avoid Statin’s Sneaky Side Effects

I’ve been warning for years that statins sharply increase your risk of Type 2 diabetes. Now the connection is undeniable thanks to a new study. Researchers at Vanderbilt University analyzed data from 53,385 adults, correlating statin use with adult-onset diabetes. Their main finding: For each statin-related 10 mg/dl decrease in cholesterol, your risk of diabetes jumps about 10%.1 That’s right …

How can you energize your heart?

Like most people in the developed world, chances are a doctor has either cajoled, persuaded, scared, or even bullied you into taking cholesterol-lowering statins. I’ve been warning you about these Big Pharma abominations for decades now. This stance turned me into a renegade among conventional doctors, but I feel I’ve saved lives – just by getting patients to stop taking …

Sleep your way to better heart health

The Easy Way to Get Better Heart Health

I’ve written to you before about how important sleep is for your brain. When you don’t get enough high-quality sleep, your brain function declines dramatically and you age faster. Now, a brand-new study shows the same is true for your heart. Researchers at Tulane University analyzed the sleep patterns of more than 400,000 volunteers over a 10-year period.1 After adjusting …

Is Taking An Aspirin A Day For Your Heart Dangerous?

I’ve been warning about the excessive reliance on over-the-counter pain relievers for years. Now the American College of Cardiology (ACC) reports 20% of adults with high blood pressure are also taking drugs that raise blood pressure… like non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).1 It’s a health disaster waiting to happen. Multiple studies report NSAIDs cause “clinically significant” spikes in blood pressure.2 In …

EASY way to prevent stroke

EASY way to prevent stroke

If you’re a regular reader, you’ve heard me talk about homocysteine. It’s a critical biomarker that reveals your risk for heart attack and stroke. Yet, most doctors NEVER test for it. I first exposed the dangers of high homocysteine in my 2004 book The Doctor’s Heart Cure. Homocysteine is an amino acid created when your body metabolizes proteins. It’s a …
