New Hope for People with Heart Disease

There's no doubt about it-people with heart disease lack energy. The heart needs a large amount of oxygenated blood flow to continuously meet its huge energy demands. That's where the new triad of cardiac health comes in-CoQ10, carnitine, and ribose. The synergistic combination of these energy-supplying nutrients maximizes the amount of oxygen that the heart and skeletal muscle can extract from the blood by accelerating the rate at which cells convert nutrients to energy.

In The Sinatra Solution , board-certified cardiologist Dr. Stephen T. Sinatra discusses the importance of energy metabolism on cardiovascular health and the positive impact these three energy-supplying nutrients have on the cardiovascular system. Dr. Sinatra knows that understanding energy metabolism in the heart is critical to devising effective therapies for treating heart disease. He guides readers through the basics of energy metabolism and cardiac bioenergetics, and clearly explains the roles of ribose, carnitine, and CoQ10in the body and specifically how they affect heart health. He provides concise and informative examples of case histories and scientific studies that are testament to the important contribution the supplemental use of these energy-supplying nutrients makes in the lives of people with heart disease every day.

While the main focus of The Sinatra Solution is on improving heart health, this book also touches upon the positive effect the triad has on other disease and disorders. Readers will learn that the supplemental use of these miraculous nutrients isn't limited to healing a sick heart and preventing heart disease. Their energy-enhancing abilities work throughout the body, essentially charging up every body cell to function at optimal capacity.

The solution for chronic inflammation, regarded as the cause of most common modern diseases, has been identified! And it is not blueberries. It is something right beneath our feet-the Earth itself!Throughout most of evolution humans walked barefoot and slept on the ground, largely oblivious that the surface of the Earth contains limitless healing energy. Science has discovered this energy as free-flowing electrons constantly replenished by solar radiation and lightning. Few people know it, but the ground provides a subtle electric signal that maintains health and governs the intricate mechanisms that make our bodies work-just like plugging a lamp into a power socket makes it light up. Modern lifestyle, including the widespread use of insulative rubber or plastic-soled shoes, has disconnected us from this energy and, of course, we no longer sleep on the ground as we did in times past.Earthing introduces the planet's powerful, amazing, and overlooked natural healing energy and how people anywhere can readily connect to it. This eye-opening book describes how the physical disconnect with the Earth creates abnormal physiology and contributes to inflammation, pain, fatigue, stress, and poor sleep. By reconnecting to the Earth, symptoms are rapidly relieved and even eliminated and recovery from surgery, injury, and athletic overexertion is accelerated.This never-before-told story-filled with fascinating research and real-life testimonials- chronicles a discovery with the potential to create a global health revolution.

Despite 40 years of aggressive pharmaceutical and surgical interventions, coronary artery disease (CAD) remains the number one killer of women and men in Western civilization. When it comes to CAD, prevention is easier than cure, and if CAD does present itself, a combination of conventional and alternative methodologies can truly make a difference in people’s lives. Nutritional and Integrative Strategies in Cardiovascular Medicine provides scientific and clinical insight from leaders in the field of cardiovascular medicine who explore an integrative approach to treating and curing cardiovascular diseases through conventional and non-allopathic methodologies.

Nutritional interventions with both appropriate noninflammatory diets and targeted nutraceutical supports are simple and basic strategies to prevent as well as help manage CAD and congestive heart failure (CHF). This evidence-based book describes how to integrate nutrition, supplements, lifestyle changes, and medications for improved outcomes in hypertension, lipids, diabetes, coronary heart disease, congestive heart failure, and much more. Topics include:

Nutrigenomics, proteomics, and metabolomics in heart disease The risks and side effects of statin drugs The value of omega-3s and other fats Naturopathic approaches Gender-specific medicine Nutrient-drug interactions in cardiovascular medicine

Nutritional medicine and understanding nutrigenomics for the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease will become the recommended practice of medicine in the very near future. This book is designed to help established health professionals as well as students preparing for degrees in healthcare.
