FEBRUARY IS NATIONAL HEART MONTH AND A GOOD TIME TO INTRODUCE YOU TO THE MOTHER EARTH PRESCRIPTION!

The Mother Earth prescription?

That's right.

What it means is that you need to connect to the ground beneath your feet because it packs surprising health benefits for your cardiovascular system—and the rest of you as well - through improvements like these:

  1. Thinner blood and enhanced blood flow
  2. Reduced...

An international group of researchers did all males—and their doctors—a great service by showing that the combination of erectile dysfunction (ED) and arterial disease (CVD) is potentially lethal. In short, the presence of both puts you at higher risk for death from all causes and also increases the chance of cardiovascular death, heart attack, stroke and heart failure hospitalization.

The 2010 study was the first to show that ED is a strong predictor of death and...

For decades, government health agencies and the long-arm of the pharmaceutical industry’s PR machine have inundated the public about the horrors of high cholesterol and saturated fat. Cholesterol and fat have been tarred and feathered as the perpetrators of heart disease.

I strongly differ with the establishment message and in my newest book, The Great Cholesterol Myth: Why Lowering Your Cholesterol Won’t Prevent Heart Disease and the Statin-Free Plan That Will...

During my thirty-plus years as a practicing cardiologist, I have encountered and used many wonderful natural remedies and seen first-hand astounding lifesaving technological advances. The greatest health discovery of my career, however, is something totally different and more natural than anything I could ever have imagined.

The discovery is called Earthing and it means connecting the human body to the natural and subtle healing energy right beneath our feet that few people even...

The “Awesome Foursome” of Coen-zyme Q10, L-Carnitine, D-Ribose, and Magnesium helps our hearts metabolize energy more efficiently and pro-tects them from the stress of cardiovascular disease. This powerful combination of nutrients goes directly to the basic biochemistry of cellular energy metabolism. Now let’s take a closer look at how Coenzyme Q10, L-carnitine, D-Ribose, and magnesium work in synergy to promote...

Editor's Note:
This is the first in a series of articles drawn from The Sinatra Solution, Metabolic Cardiology by Stephen T Sinatra, M.D.

In his introduction to this landmark work, James C. Roberts, M.D., FACC states the following: "Nutritional science provides answers to many lingering questions in medicine. It's the difference between natural science and the man-made science of drug therapy.
Pharmaceuticals do play an...

So far we have learned a good deal about how the “Awesome Foursome” of Coenzyme Q10, L-carnitine, D-ribose, and magnesium helps our hearts metabolize energy more efficiently and protects them from the stress of cardiovascular disease. This powerful combination of nutrients goes directly to the basic biochemistry of cellular energy metabolism. Now let’s take a closer look at how Coenzyme Q10, L-carnitine, D-ribose, and magnesium work in synergy to promote cardiovascular...

For many years, I have been teaching patients, and doctors, about the life-giving benefits of Coenzyme Q10 and L-carnitine. Looking back, using them in my practice represented our first steps into the world of metabolic cardiology—the treatment of heart disease on a cellular level by improving individual cell function and energy production. The effect of these nutrients on cellular energy has now been experienced by thousands of heart patients, who improved the quality of their lives...

My journey as an integrative cardiologist has been an exciting period in my life, and it has brought me endless moments of satisfaction and joy. Yes, it is joyful when you can reduce human suffering and improve the quality of life for someone else. I have shared many moments of sublime satisfaction with my patients and their families, after their life has been improved or spared through the many alternative, pharmaceutical and technical tools of modern cardiology. But the specialty I hold so...
