Heal your heart and circulatory system.
Heart disease is the number-one cause of death in the United States, and one in three Americans have some kind of cardiovascular disease. The good news is that heart disease can be prevented—and many times even reversed—by making specific lifestyle changes.
Explore exciting developments in the field of nutritional science and explain what the past few decades of research have revealed about preventing and reversing heart disease.

- How lifestyle, biology, and environmental factors contribute to heart disease
- Which foods are most effective in preventing and reversing all forms of chronic disease
- Stress-management techniques to bring more balance and harmony into your life.
Anticipated health outcomes include
- Improved body composition (less body fat and more lean muscle)
