This eye-opening podcast episode exposes the true cause of heart disease, and what we can do to reduce our risk…

When people talk about heart disease, you’re bound to hear the word “cholesterol” thrown around a lot. But did you know that cholesterol is NOT the most important marker to look at when it comes to heart disease?

There’s a lot of confusion out there about cholesterol and heart health, and this eye-opening podcast episode explains which markers you will want to pay attention to when it comes to understanding cardiovascular health, what testing and medication or supplement options to consider, lifestyle changes to improve your cardiovascular health, and more.

Heart disease is one of the biggest killers in the world. And unfortunately, our traditional medical approach is often misguided and mainly addresses the symptoms, not the causes.

The good news is, this is something that can be fixed with the right approach.
