Dr. Whitney, whose medical practice, Revolutionary Health Services is focused on preventing illness such as heart disease rather than waiting until it is too late, will interview Dr. Bale and Amy Doneen separately and on different “Third Era MD” radio program air dates. On Monday, February 10, Dr. Whitney and Dr. Bale will discuss the following:
- How cardiovascular disease can lurk undetected like a “cat in the gutter”
- The threat of inflammation on “vulnerable” arterial plaque
- Why we cannot treat inflammation with a pill; we must discover and treat its root cause
- The decreasing significance of cholesterol levels as a predictor of cardiovascular disease
- The role of statins in heart attack protection — not just for cholesterol reduction
On Monday February 17, Dr. Whitney will cover the following with Amy Doneen:
- Examine the many root causes of cardiovascular disease, some little known
- Explain how having multiple root causes significantly increases your risk of a heart attack or stroke
- Why the root causes can explain a “family history” of cardiovascular disease
- The role of genetics in cardiovascular disease and how one can “Beat the Heart Attack Gene”
According to Dr. Whitney, “I agree with Dr. Bale and Amy Doneen that most strokes and heart attacks are preventable. I’ve trained in their methods and apply them in my private practice, Revolutionary Health Services. Standard-of-care medicine is not adequately preventing heart attacks and strokes. This method offers optimal care through improved identification of those at risk, and offering a customized plan tailored to the individual’s needs. I am very honored and excited to have them as my guests on the “Third Era MD” radio show.”
