Regardless of your body composition, genetics, or age, you can turn back time. And when you do, you will feel healthier, trimmer, fitter, sexier, mentally sharper and better than you have in a decade. Steven Masley, MD and his 3 simple steps have helped thousands of patients turn back the clock, and reverse the onset of aging and disease. He is a board-certified physician, nutritionist, longevity researcher and award-winning educator who is also a highly acclaimed chef, trained at the Four Seasons.
    In this program, Dr. Masley shares the surprising news that Metabolic Syndrome, also known as pre-diabetes - not high cholesterol - is the number one cause of cardiovascular disease. Since the term metabolic syndrome is new to most, the doctor describes how easy it is to determine your risk, and why so many Americans have it.
    Dr. Masley also educates viewers about the dangers of invasive, often unnecessary cardiovascular procedures. His 3 step Heart Tune-Up program is a guide to making lifestyle changes that significantly reduce the likelihood of developing cardiovascular disease. He specifically discusses the impact food, nutrients and exercise have on making a measurable difference in the reduction of arterial plaque. Discover five new categories of heart-healing foods, learn how the amount of time you exercise isn't as important as you may think plus ensure you receive the five key nutrients many lack but are truly necessary for a younger heart.
    No matter how old you are, or how much you weigh or even the health battle you are facing, no one has to be on a one-way street to aging and disability. Patients' lives every day have been saved and transformed with this heart tune-up program that explores the 3 easy lifestyle corrections that can take 10 years off of your heart's age in just 30 Days.

The last two shows serve as review so the viewer has a chance to make certain they followed and understood correctly. In addition, if the viewer missed a show, the Thursday and Friday review days bring them up-to-date. At the onset, the program is strictly teaching the "building blocks" of yoga exercise. As the series progresses, the work becomes more demanding.
