Here’s a question for you. What do…
- Big Pharma
- “Useless dangerous procedures”
- Home birth
- Sleep and exercise
… have in common?
Well, they’re all fundamental to the health — or the disease — of our hearts, according to cardiologist Dr. Jack Wolfson in his book, The Paleo Cardiologist: The Natural Way to Heart Health.
Another question for you. If heart disease runs in your family, what’s your plan to stop it with your generation?
It’s a big question, but one that you deserve an answer to. So many of us have inherited a family history of cardiovascular disease, but that doesn’t mean it has to be your story too.
As members of our Heart Revitalization Program know, choosing cardiovascular health is a proactive commitment.

But with all sorts of conflicting information out there, it can be hard to know what’s actually important for heart health.
Tips, Case Studies, and an Action Plan for Heart Health
That’s why I’m really excited about this book, The Paleo Cardiologist: The Natural Way to Heart Health by Dr. Jack Wolfson.
In fact, each chapter ends with tips, a case study, and an action plan for you to implement the information into your own life to maximize heart health.
This book is a gold mine. It cuts through the noise and gets straight to the heart (ha) of the most important information for you empower yourself with for optimal cardiovascular health, including:
Cholesterol. Low = good, high = bad … right? Well, not always. Dr. Wolfson goes deep on how inaccurate nutrition information has confused our understanding of what’s a healthy cholesterol level and what’s not.
Most powerful daily supplements for holistic heart health:
- Whole foods vitamin: Choose a food-based vitamin for optimal absorption.
- Hawthorne: A powerful herb for heart health.
- Chlorella: Helps detox the body by binding to heavy metals.
- Magnesium: We’re all deficient in magnesium because the body uses it for so many functions. Take in powder form for easiest digestion.
- Probiotic: For gut and immune health – choose a refrigerated brand for best quality.
- Garlic: A powerful antioxidant for better blood pressure and cholesterol levels.
- Beetroot powder: Another powerful anti-inflammatory antioxidant.
Depression. In the last month, have you felt so sad and hopeless that you’ve wondered if anything is worthwhile? If yes, your risk of cardiovascular disease doubles! Heart health is mental health, and the two must be treated and cared for concurrently.
The most important lab work to assess and triage your health today:
- Leaky gut
- Vitamin D
- Thyroid panel
- Heavy metals and toxicities
- Inflammation markers
- Food sensitivities
(Psst! If you haven’t heard yet, we are so excited to share that very soon we’ll be able to offer lab work in-office to more fully support our Heart Revitalization Program clients.)
