30 year+ Cardiologist Dr. Nadir Ali provides his incredible real-world insight into Heart Disease – garnered from the 1000’s of hearts he has opened up, clients he has returned to health via diet alone, and his own personal health journey. 

Dr Nadir Ali‘s credentials and reputation are world-renowned. He Chairs the Dept of Cardiology at Clear Lake Regional Medical Centre in California, and speaks at leading health conferences on the topic of heart health, LDL Cholesterol, Low Carb diet interventions and Intermittent Fasting. 

Personally, he stumbled across the Low Carb way of eating years ago as an avid cyclist that wanted to lose excess weight and perform well. Since then, he advocates for LCHF and IF as a way to address modern diseases associated with metabolic dysfunction. 

In this discussion, Nadir helps us understand the old paradigm of heart health and the incorrect demonisation of Saturated Fat and LDL Cholesterol. He educates us on the roles of LDL and Cholesterol in the body, and provides an alternative idea as to how Heart Disease manifests. 

We dig into the efficacy and side effects of heart drugs such as statins, and explore the motivations at play that prevent the heart research and science from updating. We then leave you with practicals ways to assess and improve heart and overall health. 

This is a must-listen – It’s time to get properly educated on how to keep your heart healthy! Share with those that need to hear this…
