The 30-Day Heart Tune-Up – Dr. Sara’s Book Club #8
Posted on 25 January 2014
We all know how important cardiovascular health is to our well-being and longevity, but how many of us are actually aware of the variety of factors that contribute to a healthy (or not-so-healthy) heart?With heart disease still leading as the No. 1 killer of Americans, modern medicine naturally devotes a great deal of effort to establishing and administering treatments. These can range anywhere from prescription drugs to invasive surgery. However, one aspect that gets routinely overlooked is the extent to which individuals’ lifestyle choices can prevent the onset of cardiovascular problems in the first place, or even reverse heart disease in people who are already sick. This begs the question: If it were up to you, which option would you choose for your heart – invasive surgery or a conscious shift towards proven heart-healthy habits? Well, the good news is that it is up to you! Dr. Steven Masley, armed with years of clinical research and experience with thousands of patients, has developed and refined a proven prevention strategy that ultimately pre-empts the need for heaps of pill bottles and last-resort surgeries. And his new book,“The 30-Day Heart Tune-Up,” makes this revolutionary information easily accessible to all of us. Dr. Masley explains how anyone can improve heart health, slim down, strengthen up and enjoy more vibrant energy and a better sex life in 30 days, just by changing a few simple habits. Pssst… For a limited time, Dr. Masley is offering a special Heart Tune-Up Gift Package (a $29 value), absolutely free to my readers. Click here to receive your gift package.
Emphasizing PreventionYou already know my mantra (eat leafy greens, get that body moving and don’t forget your regular shot of sunshine), so it’s no surprise that I’m thrilled about Dr. Masley’s groundbreaking new work. A few lifestyle shifts that will help you minimize the chances of a future double bypass? Yes, please! Dr. Masley has a unique perspective on healing that comes from his extensive work in impoverished countries, where he observed first hand the human body’s incredible ability to heal itself without high-tech treatments, drugs or surgeries. In “The 30-Day Heart Tune-Up,” he passes on his knowledge of how to rediscover your body’s power and innate healing wisdom. Readers learn how to shrink arterial plaque, eat heart-healthy foods, revamp circulation, mitigate stress and use targeted exercise to strengthen the heart and arteries. He approaches the study of heart health in a more holistic, encompassing way, evaluating multiple contributing factors. This strategy improves upon the traditional, rather one-dimensional method of simply measuring cholesterol levels to assess risk.
