We all know how important cardiovascular health is to our well-being and longevity, but how many of us are actually aware of the variety of factors that contribute to a healthy (or not-so-healthy) heart?
With heart disease still leading as the No. 1 killer of Americans, modern medicine naturally devotes a great deal of effort to establishing and administering treatments. These can range anywhere from prescription drugs to invasive surgery. However, one aspect that gets routinely overlooked is the extent to which individuals’ lifestyle choices can prevent the onset of cardiovascular problems in the first place, or even reverse heart disease in people who are already sick.
This begs the question: If it were up to you, which option would you choose for your heart – invasive surgery or a conscious shift towards proven heart-healthy habits?
Well, the good news is that it is up to you! Dr. Steven Masley, armed with years of clinical research and experience with thousands of patients, has developed and refined a proven prevention strategy that ultimately pre-empts the need for heaps of pill bottles and last-resort surgeries. And his new book,“The 30-Day Heart Tune-Up,” makes this revolutionary information easily accessible to all of us.
Dr. Masley explains how anyone can improve heart health, slim down, strengthen up and enjoy more vibrant energy and a better sex life in 30 days, just by changing a few simple habits.
Pssst… For a limited time, Dr. Masley is offering a special Heart Tune-Up Gift Package (a $29 value), absolutely free to my readers. Click here to receive your gift package.
You already know my mantra (eat leafy greens, get that body moving and don’t forget your regular shot of sunshine), so it’s no surprise that I’m thrilled about Dr. Masley’s groundbreaking new work. A few lifestyle shifts that will help you minimize the chances of a future double bypass? Yes, please!
Dr. Masley has a unique perspective on healing that comes from his extensive work in impoverished countries, where he observed first hand the human body’s incredible ability to heal itself without high-tech treatments, drugs or surgeries. In “The 30-Day Heart Tune-Up,” he passes on his knowledge of how to rediscover your body’s power and innate healing wisdom.
Readers learn how to shrink arterial plaque, eat heart-healthy foods, revamp circulation, mitigate stress and use targeted exercise to strengthen the heart and arteries. He approaches the study of heart health in a more holistic, encompassing way, evaluating multiple contributing factors. This strategy improves upon the traditional, rather one-dimensional method of simply measuring cholesterol levels to assess risk.
At a glance, here are some of the book’s crucial concepts:
- Sugar and trans fats: the real problem foods for heart disease
- Why Americans are cardiovascular wrecks compared with residents of other countries
- Cholesterol myths, debunked: why cholesterol isn’t the main indicator of future heart issues

Build Your Strongest Heart – Taking Responsibility for Your Health
Walking into a doctor’s office and getting diagnosed with cardiovascular disease usually results in a drug regimen, prescribed to slow the disease’s progression. While this can help, Dr. Masley urges readers to remember that treating the symptoms of an issue is different from addressing the underlying problem. It is a common pitfall to assume that a prescription drug has fixed one’s condition, when really it takes a lifestyle shift to get to the root cause. In his book, Dr. Masley guides readers through the process of taking responsibility for our own health, and demonstrates how simple this can actually be.
“The 30-Day Heart Tune-Up” is all about implementing methods to get your cardiovascular system healthy and working for you, before the onset of disease. That being said, remember not to worry if you are getting started late in the game, or are already experiencing heart complications. If you follow this straightforward, lifestyle-conscious strategy, you could actually experience a reversal of any current cardiovascular issues.
“Nationally, we spend far too much money on procedures for a problem that is preventable, should be diagnosed earlier, and is best treated with lifestyle changes,” Dr. Masley writes.“We often don’t act until a heart attack or stroke occurs, and by then it’s often too late. For too many people, the first symptom of heart disease is sudden—they don’t get another chance to change anything.”
Take matters into your own hands, and get started on your path to a healthier heart today.
