HEALTH CONSCIOUS MD, TCM DOCTOR/ACUPUNCTURIST, & DENTIST: Most everyone needs a medical doctor (MD) at one time or another. As you get older it is sensible to have a check up from time to time. The key to healing and maintaining a healthy, happy heart is to always address the cause of the problem and avoid the protocol system of being treated with drugs.

All drugs have side effects! In addition to working with a good nutritionists (different from a dietician) and health conscious MD, also consider the options of working with a Health Coach, TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) Doctor, and/or an Acupuncturist.

The long-term outcome with all these natural methods is much better and safer than just being treated with medication. A good doctor will address the cause(s) and collaborate with a good nutritionist, health coach, and/or acupuncturist when the need arises. Some medical doctors also do acupuncture in their practice, which is a very effective healing method. Nutrition is a different profession that requires more time than what a doctor’s visit allows for.

Remember, one size doesn’t fit all! Last but not least find a good, biological dentist that doesn’t use fluoride, amalgam, or unprotected x-rays. Research has shown that some heart attacks have their roots in the mouth from an infection. To learn more read the MOH February 2018 issue, which featured Dr. Gerald P. Curatola, DDS.

In addition to all of the above, maintaining a healthy mouth and gut microbiome are a very important part of achieving heart health and happiness!
