Dr. Jack Wolfson started out as most traditional cardiologists do — he went through several years of training and started working with patients in his practice.

But, despite using what he was taught, he found that his treatments weren’t as effective as they should be.

On top of that, his wife opened his eyes to a possibility that he had never considered: what he was taught wasn’t going to fix the problem and only led to prolonging poor heart health.

Dr. Wolfson followed this path and realized there was more than enough truth to it.

So he set out to change how he treats poor heart health conditions in his patients by addressing the root causes that many people don’t even realize are connected to it.

It didn’t take long for him to see success in his patients and now he uses and teaches this holistic approach to heart health both in the United States and across the globe.

When you tune into this episode, you’ll learn why our traditional treatments — such as statins, low dose aspirin, and high blood pressure meds — aren’t effective and why they contribute to poor health outcomes, not better.

You’ll also learn Dr. Wolfson’s top principles for improving health and keeping your heart in tip top shape.

Dr. Wolfson also dives into why some people may still need heart medications but why this shouldn’t last forever and what the goal is with these instead.

You’ll also hear more about cholesterol, chiropractic care and why emergency rooms should be using this form of medicine, and the top areas to focus on starting today.

With nutrition, the most important thing is getting the chemicals out of your food. Click To Tweet

He was also named one of the Top 50 Functional Medicine doctors by Dr. Josh Axe.
