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.
