Heart Disease and BalanSoul
We’re all worried about heart disease, and for good reason. The diagnosis rates are on the rise, and the death toll is, too. It’s likely that heart disease has already impacted you or someone you know. And if it hasn’t, there’s a good chance it will.
But we’re not helpless! We don’t have to just wait in fear. The sooner you take responsibility for your heart health and take control of it, the better your chances of avoiding cardiovascular diseases. It can be done, and I can help you do it, naturally, starting today.
Many of the therapies I offer can aid heart health. In particular, I have a number of herbal and nutritional mixtures that have produced notable results for controlling blood pressure, cholesterol, and promoting overall heart health. Thus, these therapies work toward preventing or even reversing heart diseases such as the infamously deadly hardening of the arteries known as atherosclerosis. Indeed, I have an arsenal to aid in reversing the build up of artery-hardening plaque, without the risks and side effects associated with conventional treatments.
Controlling blood cholesterol levels is only part of the equation – and an often-misunderstood part, at that. Be sure to download the excerpt from the book The Myth of Cholesterol, by Paul Dugliss and Sarah Fernandez (link below). But, that said, I can certainly help you to lower your cholesterol levels if need be.
Without a healthy heart, the rest of your body can’t thrive. Likewise, upon improving your heart health you will notice your entire body performing better than ever before. Your mind becomes sharper, your physical stamina increases, you become more comfortable in your skin, and so many other great things. Your cardiovascular system is at the heart (pun intended) of your whole-body health. Let me help you take care of it safely and naturally!
Best wishes for a healthy future, and I hope to hear from you.

The Myth of Cholesterol
There are a million books about cardiovascular health on the market, but there is one that I recommend more often than any other. The Myth of Cholesterol delivers a profound, potentially life-changing message. Authors Paul Dugliss and Sarah Fernandez have kindly given BalanSoul permission to reproduce a section. The excerpt includes information about:
- The importance of cholesterol
- Why lowering cholesterol via diet doesn’t always lead to lowered cholesterol levels
- Why the brain can and must manufacture cholesterol
- How cholesterol is protective against heart disease
- The consequences when people lower their cholesterol to far
- The types of questions to ask about cholesterol ratings
- Why cholesterol is a poor predictor of heart and artery disease
- Fascinating studies in relation to cholesterol
- The suspects causing artery injury
- The real heart disease culprits
- How every person can create their own heart health
- How the majority of chronic disease can be prevented
I believe that naturally promoting overall heart health is the key to preventing and helping to treat all cardiovascular problems. But, that said, some patients (yourself, perhaps) need special attention regarding a specific diagnosis. The types of cardiovascular problems I specialize in include:
- Hypertension (High blood pressure)
- Hypotension (Low blood pressure/poor circulation)
- Atherosclerosis (Hardening of arteries)
- Hypercholesteremia (High cholesterol/general cholesterol concerns)
If you have not been diagnosed with a cardiovascular illness, then we can focus on determining your preventable risk factors and promoting heart health to keep you heart disease free! Remember, your risk for heart disease rises considerably with age. Start taking preventative measures now, and beat these deadly illnesses before they take hold.
Mind-body medicine has much to offer those interested in heart health. We’ve all heard the stereotypes of men and women in high-stress jobs having heart attacks. Well, it’s not just a cliché! Mental stress contributes to physical heart disease. Resolving and controlling stress, therefore, can help resolve and control heart disease, naturally. Therapies such as meditation, intentional counselling, guided imagery and massage all go a long way to promoting cardiovascular health – as do many other therapies I offer.
The following is taken from the Blood Pressure Control section of my website and store, Mindivine.
“Down with High Blood Pressure will show you how to use imagery to reduce stress, relax blood vessels and lower blood pressure. A valuable aid for relaxing and healing the cardiovascular system as a whole. Because stress is so often implicated in diseases of the cardiovascular system, Letting Go of Stress and The Ten-Minute Stress Manager may prove valuable.
“The tension and hostility often associated with cardiovascular disease may respond to The Serenity Prayer and Writing Your Own Script. Abolish Anxiety may help you relax, free yourself from distracting thoughts, and see that you have other options in addition to the automatic one that is based in anxiety. Dr. Miller’s book, Deep Healing: The Essence of Mind-Body Medicine, help you understand the how and why of mind-body medicine and cardiovascular disease.”
