Millions of Americans are affected by unhealthy cholesterol levels, putting them at risk for cardiovascular and other serious diseases. According to Dr. Stephen R. Devries, to effectively combat high cholesterol you must know more than just your cholesterol level. He suggests patients follow an integrative program that incorporates other factors. Readers will gain insight into their heart health and how to identify risk factors.
Heart disease is largely preventable, but conventional cholesterol management is often inadequate. According to university cardiologist and leading prevention specialist Dr. Stephen R. Devries, avoiding heart disease requires a far more comprehensive approach that balances new high tech testing with low tech treatments. Now, in WHAT YOUR DOCTOR MAY NOT TELL YOU ABOUT CHOLESTEROL, Dr. Devries combines natural treatments with the latest scientific
advances. New types of cholesterol tests are highlighted that go far beyond routine testing to identify hidden risks. Expanding the traditional medical model, Dr. Devries illustrates the role of mind/body interventions, lifestyle, supplements, vitamins, and conservative use of medication for optimal prevention.
