Have you ever heard that lifestyle IS medicine? But it is the hardest type of medicine to take! Medications and supplements are important and lifestyle is too. Healthy lifestyle behavior changes are difficult to initiate without understanding the science of preventive medicine. It’s hard to push away from the dinner table and equally difficult to get off the couch. Knowing the impact these behaviors have on the lining of your arteries and resultant impact on your heart and brain can help motivate these changes. Saying “no” to dessert becomes easier when you know that increased blood sugar is the most common cause of heart attack, stroke and cognitive decline. Knowing that high intensity interval training lowers your blood sugar by improving the uptake of blood glucose into the muscle cell wall gives us a rationale for establishing an exercise routine. The purpose of this website is to provide cutting edge science in user friendly terminology and formats. We hope you can take this practical science, implement healthy behavior changes, and age without disability.
In an effort to reach a wider audience and promote health care, Dr. Brewer has developed a digital course on Cardiovascular Inflammation. We will offer the course for FREE for the next couple of days. In return, we ask that you complete the short survey at the end of the course. Your feedback is greatly appreciated.
