When it comes to cardiovascular disease – which includes high blood pressure, angina, heart attacks and strokes – you’re only told a tiny fraction of the truth, and the information is certainly not balanced.
Heart disease, you’re led to believe, happens because you have high blood cholesterol, because you smoke, or because you eat too much saturated fat.
Some of this information is plain wrong, and some of it is only partially true.
You’re never taught that cardiovascular disease is actually just an end result of two main factors:
- Too much bad stuff being in your body – e.g. H. pylori, other bacteria, bad foods such as vegetable oils and sugar, bad toxins, oral bacteria and too much oestrogen.
- Inadequate good stuff being in your body – e.g. vitamin C, vitamins B6, B12 and folate, thyroid hormones, testosterone and other important health-promoting molecules.
The scientific evidence is there for everyone to see, and the really smart cardiologists and doctors all use an integrative approach that involves optimizing food, digestion, detoxification and hormone balance to get the best results for their patients.
In 2008 I came across a wealth of research indicating a role for H. pylori infection in the development of heart disease and I couldn’t believe why nobody was talking about it.
I found that certain strains of H. pylori can influence the following cardiovascular disease risk factors by:
Increasing blood pressure
Increasing insulin resistance
Increasing oxidative stress
Increasing c-reactive protein levels
Altering cholesterol profiles in favour of “bad” cholesterol
Sure, there’s some technical jargon here, but it’s very simple to explain in layman’s terms, which is exactly what I do for you in the book.
As I investigated heart disease causes in more and more depth, I came across information about other possible causes that were so basic and so easy to avoid or deal with that I just had to share the information with you.
So, since 2008, I’ve painstakingly pulled together vast amounts of information on heart disease from some of the world’s leading doctors, cardiologists and researchers, including Dr. Stephen Sinatra, MD, Dr. Mark Houston, Dr. MD, Sherry Rogers, MD and Dr. Tom Levy, MD.
I hope and believe this book will help you, your family and countless thousands of other people, reduce your risk for developing heart disease.

The Top 15 Steps You Can Take TODAY To Reduce Your Heart Disease Risk
Once I’ve outlined the main reasons for heart disease I’m going to give you 15 powerful yet simple steps that may help you to begin reducing your heart disease risk right away.
I’ve pulled these 15 steps together from the work of leading doctors, cardiologists and nutritionists from around the world.
For your convenience I’ve laid out the recommendations in an easy-to-follow sequence to enable you to implement them in a stress-free way.
These steps involve simple diet and lifestyle changes, supplement recommendations and specific laboratory tests to check your level of risk.
Some brief examples – presented in greater detail within the book – include:
- Testing for H. pylori to identify whether you have CagA or VacA strains
- Removing vegetable oils from your diet except olive oil and coconut oil to reduce oxidative stress levels in your arteries.
- Removing gluten from your diet to ensure you minimize intestinal inflammation.
- Using specific herbs and foods to reduce inflammation, such as turmeric.
- Taking 1,000 to 2,000 mg vitamin C per day to help maintain the integrity of your arteries.
- Considering a high quality magnesium supplement at around 200-400 mg/day.
- Ensuring your sodium (salt) and potassium (fruit and veg) intake are well balanced.
- Get your vitamin and mineral status accurately checked (e.g. B12, folate, B6), and taking steps to address any low levels you may uncover.
- Considering supplementing heart-healthy nutrients such as carnitine, lysine, proline and coenzyme Q10.
Steps such as these not only improve your cardiovascular health, but also your health in general.
You may well feel more energized, have better moods, improved sleep and less aches and pains by removing bad stuff from your body and replacing the good stuff.
In short this book will show you the principles to rejuvenate, optimize and maintain your health for the rest of your life.
It doesn’t matter whether you’re interested in your heart health, energy, sleep, mood, skin, digestion, sex drive or sports performance – this book will transform your health.
