Aging, Telomeres, and Cardiovascular Health

Heart Disease is the Number One Killer in America for both men and women. February is “heart disease awareness” month, and Dr. Houston is one of the TOP doctors in the world, on the topic of hypertension, aging telomeres and cardiovascular health.

This is another episode of my “Saving Your Life” Series. This is a must have BOOK and Conversation. It will change the way you look at your health and the “normal results” you get from your doctor, only to have a heart attack or stroke diagnosed within one month or so.

We discussed the ABC’s of heart health which is the basis of the program for the American Heart Association, but we went well beyond the basics. We discussed the contents of Dr. Houston’s new book, which should be on your current reading list. You can save your life and the lives of those you love.

Dr. Mark Houston, MD is triple board certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine, the American Society of Hypertension, and the American Board of Anti-Aging Medicine. In addition to his medical background he also obtained a master’s degree in clinical human nutrition in 2003. In 2008, Dr. Houston was selected by Consumer Research Council as one the TOP PHYSICIANS in the United States. Just this past November and May, 2009, Dr. Houston was selected by USA Today as one of the most Influential Physicians in the U.S. in both hypertension and hyperlipidemia.

Dr. Houston is a consulting reviewer for over 20 major medical journal in the U.S., he’s completed over 70 clinical research studies in hypertension, hyperlipidemia, and cardiovascular disease, and Dr. Houston has published over 150 medical articles in peer-reviewed journals. He speaks nationally and internationally on hypertension and has written three best-selling books – The Handbook of Antihypertensive Therapy, Vascular Biology for the Clinician, and What Your Doctor Does Not Tell You About Hypertension: The Revolutionary Nutrition and Lifestyle Program to Help Fight High Blood Pressure.

Some of the questions we covered include:

  • What is the real reason people have heart attacks?
  • What does Inflammation mean in this heart disease story?
  • Is cholesterol the real problem in heart disease?
  • Are statins the answer to heart health?
  • What is the ABCT exercise program?
  • What diagnostic tests are most useful and necessary?
