This book tells what is the underlining cause of heart disease. Dr Houston indicates that high cholesterol is not the cause of heart disease. The book explain how the heart when weaken by our lifestyle of poor diet and lack of exercise and stress contribute to heart disease. He provide his own formula of diet which is between a Mediterranean and a DASH diet and supplements to reduce inflammation and enhance your energy with proper nutrients. He also indicate what type of exercise to do which is both resistance and aerobic exercise to burn the fat and strengthen the artery.
I read this book twice plus I use it as a guide for helping my patients with cardiovascular disease on daily basis. If you follow Dr. Houston's suggestions and guidelines from his book -you can see a BIG difference in your and your patients health.
It is must read not only for medical professionals but any lay person. It is very easy to follow and understand plus at the end of the book Dr. Houston put appendixes and 'practical approaches' for health professionals and interested laypeople. I highly recommend this book as a MUST READ for everybody at any age.
And actual I during 4 years have been fighting with the doctors, who still, in the hospitals, only are looking at the cholesterols as "Total not higher than 200, and the HDL not higher than 50". And therefore wanted to put my wife on ducks as she were having a HDL on 114.
In the start of the book, in the chapter 1, we are getting the newest knowledge, and speculations, concerning the arterial, in the connection to the probability of getting a heart attack. And this especially connected to either an intima endothelium (the inside surface in the arterials (shown in drawing)), or as a storing grown up on the inside of an arterial, under a fibrous cap (also shown in drawing). And where the grown up storing later can loosen and travel to the heart or the brain.
And in the start of the book we also are getting some interesting patient cases. For example under the chapter 5, in which we are learning about cholesterol, we on the side 66 have two patients who both are having the "healthy" LDL level on only 100 mg/dL, but even though one of them getting a mild heart attack.Read more ›

Not a really bad book, just not a good one.
Some areas (like that of recommendations for anti inflammatory supplements) are for the most part very good. Read more
