THE FOUR CRUCIAL AREAS TO BETTER HEALTH

How did eating well get so complicated?  And what is the best diet?  Is it Low Carb or Low Fat? Gluten Free, Paleo, Mediterranean, or Whole Food Plant based? What foods should you avoid? How do you find the best diet for you?  Here are your answers.

Lose Weight For Bettr Health

 YOUR HEART

Your Heart is amazing.  More than the muscle that pumps your blood, your Heart is at your center.  It's your spiritual core.  Your Heart is what drives you, excites you and gives you purpose.

 
Yet the Heart is vulnerable.  More people die from heart disease than any other cause.  World-wide there are over 7 million deaths from heart disease each year (about 1 death every 3 seconds). 


But it doesn't have to be that way.  Heart disease not inevitable, in fact it's mostly preventable.  Fortunately, we know exactly how to keep your Heart healthy. Take care of 7 common sense aspects of health and your risk of heart disease is decreased by 80% compared to those who don't. 


My goal is to let people know that their health is in their hands.  I want to build a healthy community of informed people sharing up to date information, dialogue and techniques about keeping your heart from being a statistic.


Because You - and your Heart - deserve it.
