In this episode, Alexx chats to renowned integrative cardiologist Dr Stephen Sinatra. He’s a nutritional therapist and psychotherapist and a big believer that patients are a doctor’s greatest teachers.
They talk about rigidity in the medical profession. Rigidity is the Achilles heel of the doctor – believing that whatever we learn in med school then stands still as truth for the rest of their practising years? Well, that just makes no sense!
They also discuss vital nutrients needed for healthy heart function, whether or not butter is GREEN LIGHT, how to have conversations with your doctor around cholesterol and statins, when statins are useful and when they are not, where lifestyle and nutrient therapy would be enough to produce great heart health results, the redefining of the thinking that cholesterol is our enemy, and more that cholesterol is your friend.
Dr Sinatra also talks about the power of crying and laughing and what patients really need to heal successfully.
