033 – Nutrition for Cardiovascular Health – My Interview with Dr. Gaetano Morello

Dr. Morello discusses the causes of heart disease and what you can do.

Dr. Gaetano MorelloIf you have cardiovascular disease or if you are on cholesterol lowering drugs, then you need to hear this interview. Dr. Morello discusses some of the reasons we get heart disease. He especially focuses on the health of the arteries. Many people with heart concerns never learn that there are specific nutrients that can help. The sad fact about the modern medical approach to heart disease is to patch, replace and/or medicate. As important as these are in the management of disease they do not get you closer to being healthier. You need to nourish the body with the building blocks of health. Only your body can heal a sick heart and if you must nourish your body therapeutically, or you will have the best results. Drugs cannot do what nutrition can do and nutrition are not drugs and cannot do what drugs do.

Dr. Morello also has a message if you are on statin drugs. Statin drugs are of little use unless you have already have a cardiac event. Depending on your personal various risk factors you may not need statins at all. Overall the message is that there is a lot that you can do to have better heart health and taking care of your nutrition is the best way to have the best heart health possible.
