Understand the new science and treatments for cardiovascular and related conditions. You can be healthy longer

Our medical system is out of date. It is arranged around risk factors, specialists, and organ systems. It is designed to rescue patients late in the disease process. Chronic diseases lead to most premature death, disability, and costs. The same biology causes high blood pressure, diabetes, heart attacks, strokes, kidney failure, and amputation. Best practice medications, diet, and exercise work as antioxidants to protect every organ and cell in the body. We also discuss the systems and payment models to support these best practices. Primary care teams deliver this care for cardiovascular and related conditions best. One team can address all of these illnesses and achieve much better results. By learning this material, you can stay healthy longer and save money.

George Lundberg on this newsletter:

“But the best medical maverick may be the elegantly educated physician, also greatly experienced in real-world medicine, with the zeal of an investigative journalist, huge savvy on how to gather information, and laser-focused on critical thinking. This maverick has no government or industry ties to constrain or conflict, is truly independent, driven by truth-finding and telling, and practicing rapid information throughput dissemination. I am not describing artificial intelligence (although maybe someday). I refer to public media physician journalists such as Vin Gupta and Leana Wen, and angry critic Vinay Prasad.

Medscape columnist and Yale professor F. Perry Wilson; daily newsletter writer Dr Bill Bestermann; and my favorite COVID blogger, Dr Susan Levenstein and her Stethoscope on Rome are among the best at living out, critically analyzing, and broadly disseminating the rapidly moving fronts of medical information that beg for instant interpretation. Valued physicians like these can be both mainstream and maverick simultaneously.”

Stay up-to-date

I will post the latest science and treatments for cardiovascular and related conditions beginning with the most dangerous and expensive. The same biology that causes chronic disease also makes us age more rapidly but now we understand the science and we can interfere with it. This site contains nearly two years worth of daily posts. Paid subscribers get access to that content and I will answer their questions by phone or email. I publish free posts on weekdays.
