In a world where heart disease looms large, claiming lives prematurely through heart attacks and strokes, the quest for a solution has never been more critical. This episode features a profound conversation between Dr. Geo and Dr. Daniel Chung, a respected naturopathic physician with over two decades of experience in Portland, Oregon. Dr. Chung, a graduate of National University, has dedicated his career to the advanced risk assessment, prevention, and drug-free treatment of cardiovascular disease, training under the renowned Dr. Mark Houston in Cardiometabolic Medicine.

Our discussion kicks off with an illuminating study released by the American Health Association in August 2023, offering fresh guidelines on dietary practices to combat cardiovascular risks effectively. Dr. Chung shares his insights into these recommendations, emphasizing the importance of a holistic yet practical approach to nutrition. The focus then shifts to implementing a plant-based diet, unraveling its definition, benefits, and potential drawbacks.

Join Dr. Geo and Dr. Daniel Chung as they navigate the nuances of lowering cardiovascular disease risk through diet, aiming to make heart-healthy living achievable and realistic for everyone. This episode is a must-listen for anyone looking to protect their heart and embrace a life filled with vitality and longevity.
