After a bit of a much needed summer break…we are back! And what better way to dive back into women’s health issues than talking about women’s heart health in midlife? The truth is, heart issues can present themselves differently for women than they do in men so it’s important to know and recognize the signs and of course take preventative measures wherever we can.
Guest Dr. Elizabeth Klodas is a board-certified Cardiologist, author, speaker and founder of the Preventative Cardiology Clinic near Minneapolis, Minnesota. She is also the founder and Chief Medical Officer for Step One Foods which are a line of food products (like snack bars) clinically formulated to block cholesterol absorption and reabsorption in the digestive system thereby improving cardiovascular health. She believes nutrition is the root cause of the problem of high cholesterol so she created a food as medicine alternative to our “pill for every ill” culture.
Join Lauren and Dr. Klodas as they have an in-depth discussion about: knowing where to begin when it comes to your heart health; what you can do to improve your heart health naturally (without pills); when we should really start taking our heart health seriously; how to improve our diet to help our heart; the motivation behind developing Step One Foods to help heart health and how the products work, how Step One Foods can be used for preventative measures and so much more!
