Dr. Daniel Chong: Healing the heart with food
In this conversation, Dr. Chong and I focused on the number 1 killer in the US, heart disease. Dr. Chong talked about the foundation for preventing and reversing cardiovascular disease - diet and lifestyle.
Some things we talk about include:
Dr. Chong's favorite foods for heart health, as well as those to avoid
Nutritional supplementation - do we really need to take vitamins and minerals!?
Baby steps to a happier and healthier life
We covered a lot of ground, and really just skimmed the surface. I know Dr. Chong will be back on the podcast some day to expand and deepen into some of these topics that he is and expert on!
