My medical background supports effective cardiovascular disease care in Australia.
Preventing cardiovascular disease is crucial for longevity. The disease develops in childhood, progresses with age and is the leading cause of death and disability worldwide.
- Depending on one’s age and health, appropriate changes to diet and lifestyle patterns can prevent, slow, and even reverse the progression of this life-threatening disease. We now have access to several dietary strategies that reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.
- People with raised cholesterol levels may even avoid the need for drug therapies by adopting these eating plans, as this food-first approach can be as effective as statin medications in bringing cholesterol levels back into the normal range.
I maintain a current and thorough knowledge of all diet and lifestyle strategies related to cardiovascular disease, drawing upon the most appropriate and sustainable approaches for each individual to manage this life-threatening health condition.
